Verizon Confirms Plans to Carry LG G2, Posts First Picture of the Device With 3 VZW Logos

verizon lg g2

This afternoon, Verizon confirmed their plans to carry the freshly announced LG G2. LG mentioned during a press event today, that they would push their new flagship out to the four major U.S. carriers, but we were still waiting for Big Red to officially acknowledge that they were a part of those plans. Thanks to Twitter, they have gone ahead and stated their intentions, while also showing a press image of their specific variant of the phone. As you can tell, LG did not have the same kind of pull as Motorola did with the Moto X when it came to branding. We’ve got two LG logos and three Verizon-related marks. Woof.

All they would announce for today is that the device is “coming soon.”

If you were looking for an AT&T confirmation as well, you can stop by this page and sign-up to be notified of availability.

    its a damn shame when a phone has just as many carrier logos as the OEM who made it

  • Ej McCarty

    Yeah calm down bro. Too much. go relax and get a nice jerk off of your mom.

    • Jason B

      1) I’m not your bro.
      2) You apparently have no sense of humor.

  • ReturnOfTheMack

    Chill dude.

  • TrevorKai

    Is there anyone that is excited about this phone?

  • Mitch Joa

    I don’t understand why they brand the phones so much. It’s not like we’re buying an ad-supported device. If we were getting the devices for free then sure, brand it up Verizon. But we’re paying $200-$700 for these devices, I think we’ve earned not having the branding.

  • DCABuckeye

    Everyday, it’s the same thing: Verizon bloatware; Verizon logos; Verizon late to the game; Verizon crap phones; Verizon shared plan taking away my unlimited… and so on and so on. OMG, just go to another carrier already! You’ll be just as happy there, I’m sure.

  • imronburgundy

    They just can’t leave well enough alone.

  • DanSan

    yo dawg

  • rutgersjaffo

    ZOMG!!! A LOGO?! –indignation here–

  • Freddy

    Verizon, Verizon, Verizon. what a bunch if cry baby idiots. This phone is a beast plain and simple. Overkill specs for an OS that cannot over tax a dual core.

  • beaumac

    Can someone please confirm if this has a removable battery or not?

    • jh123416

      It does not

      • beaumac

        Doh! Sooooo close LG, so close! This better have all-day batter life or *facepalm*

    The title of this post should have read “Here’s some nit picking about a phone that’s not the moto x. I love you moto x. Nothing is better than you, moto x”.

    Glad this phone already got axed from my Possible list due to the menu button fail, and storage fail. That ugly ass Verizon logo on the top front of my DNA sometimes makes me think I have a phone from 2010. Fortunately the DNA is otherwise so good, other than the 16gb limit, that I’m reaching to find small flaws like this damn logo.

    And I thought Verizon was finished with the stupid 4G LTE logo. Every phone Verizon sells has had 4G for about two years now, they can stop reminding us, ffs.

    Makes the Moto X look pretty good in this department, by comparison.

  • Steve B

    Wow Verizon! Is there anything you won’t completely F up. Yikes, whoever’s pulling the strings needs to get their head checked.

  • Butters619

    Anybody notice the back if different?

  • Brian Wolfman

    The logos dont actually bother me. Its why did they go and change the back?!? The silver around the camera?? the buttons look slimmer? Ugh, thanks verizon for going and ruining a perfectly awesome looking phone.

  • Brandon Nesky

    Everyone keeps talking about the logos. Am I the only one noticing the different buttons on the back?? I can only see this being like the original Galaxy S launch where everyone had a slightly different model. This means no truly universal cases…

  • James Hill

    Too bad it’s a uni-body design. I mean if you could remove the back you could at least change it.

  • onlygoodtime88

    i have a verzion LTE Logo on My ass for Fun 🙂

  • John Davids

    I would tell Verizon the same thing I tell to every car dealership I have purchased a car from:

    “You are more than welcome to put your branding on that product I just purchased and now wholly own, but I will be billing you a $39.95 monthly fee for the advertising I am providing.”

    I’ve purchased 5 cars from dealers, and have gotten 5 free paint jobs to remove their stickers 🙂

    • ApplesNAndroids

      Paint jobs to remove a dealership sticker… Uh, seems you’re the one being played.

    • Rick James

      Dealership stickers remove with a heat gun and a little solvent like Toluene to remove the adhesive … No harm done. Yeah you got 5 free paint jobs .. Like having a car with a perfectly good paint job repainted is a good thing. Moron. You aren’t telling VZW anything. You’ll buy their phone logos and all and you’ll like it. Assuming you can afford their service anyways.

      • John Davids

        Except on older cars when the sticker has been there for years and the paint underneath is far less faded than the rest of the car. But no you are totally right, getting it repainted for free so the fade matches, I am pretty stupid. 🙂

      • umbrellacorp

        Anyone who buys cars from a dealership is already getting played.

  • XboxOne

    The Verizon logo in the front top looks horrible :

  • David Wanless

    Verizon have gotten as bad as used car dealers who put their giant dealership badge in the most obscure asymetrical location of every vehicle they sell.

  • HeartStrong07

    Wow … that does ugly things up a bit … overall, though, nice effort by LG … they are a player … with the Galaxy Note 3 being to big for my tastes … the Google Nexus 5 is my final hope to upgrade from my Verizon Galaxy Nexus … I rate the LG G2 my #2 choice

  • NorCalGuy

    I’ll take one

  • Dorian Brooks

    Verizon Wireless. Making every phone look like it came out of Nascar since 2001.
