Buy the LG G5 on AT&T
AT&T's got it's usual bevy of options when it comes to purchasing the LG G5. And currently it's the only place we have proper pricing. You can buy it outright, off contract, which will cost you the most. Or you can pay for it monthly as a part of your total bill. Here's how it all breaks down:
- Off-contract: $688 before taxes.
- $23 a month on Next 24 for 30 months
- $29 a month on Next 18 for 24 months
- $34 a month on Next 12 for 20 months
- $17 a month for 28 months, and $200 down
That's all in addition to services and fees and taxes and what not.
Buy the LG G5 unlocked at B&H
B&H Photo is a longtime retailer in New York City. It'll be selling the LG G5 unlocked, in silver only. It'll have radio bands for GSM and CDMA carriers, B&H says, as well as 4G LTE.
In addition, B&H already has the CAM Plus module — it's an attachment that adds some physical buttons for photography, as well as an extended battery — listed at $69. B&H has the CAM 360 accessory — handheld 360-degree video — listed for $199. The LG 360 VR — LG's uber-Google Cardboard goggles that are powered by the LG G5 itself — also is listed at $199.
Buy the LG G5 from Sprint
The LG G5 will run $24 a month at Sprint over 24 months — that's a "mere" $576 outright. There's also an option to pay $199 up front (before a $50 rebate), which would make the monthly payments about $15. Preorders start online March 24, and in stores March 25. The phone will be available April 1.
Sprint also has listed the LG 360 CAM at $199.
Buy the LG G5 at Verizon Wireless
Verizon's LG G5 will run you $26 a month with no money down, or $624 off-contract.
Buy the LG G5 at T-Mobile
T-Mobile's version of the LG G5 weighs in at $629.99 outright. If you're paying for it monthly, it'll run you $26.25 for 24 months.
Buy the LG G5 on US Cellular
US Cellular has a few options for the LG G5. You can get it prepaid and outright for $584.99. With a two-year contract it'll cost you $199. And if you want to do monthly, it'll cost $26.50 for 24 months.
Buy the LG G5 at Best Buy
Finally, Best Buy has the LG G5 listed at $99, if you sign up for a 2-year contract with a carrier. (Specifically, that's Sprint or AT&T.) Best Buy also is throwing in a free replacement battery, charging cradle and USB-C to micro-USB adapter.
Best Buy also is listing the LG G5 at $799 outright, but seeing as how that price is a good bit more than what AT&T is selling the G5 for off-contract, it's possible it's just a placeholder. In any event, that's not an avenue we'd really recommend at this point.
