As a quick reminder to kick off this beautiful Thursday, we wanted to point out that the LG G3 and Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet are both available at Verizon in-store and online. Also, Verizon’s new ALLSET prepaid plan that includes 4G LTE connectivity can be signed up for as of this morning. Finally, Big Red is still running a 50% smartphone deal that drops all sorts of devices to $99 or lower, but those have to be purchased on-contract. Today is Verizon’s big day, which we first reported on a couple of weeks back.
To recap, the LG G3 can be picked up for $99 on-contract, $29.99 per month with Edge, or $599 at full retail. If you are at all considering this phone (and you should be), you will want to take a look at our 25+ tips and tricks for the G3, comparison to the Galaxy S5 and One (M8), and quick look at Spigen’s line of cases. We should have our full review up shortly, but if you can’t tell, both Tim and I are really excited about the G3.
The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is Sony’s latest flagship slate with a 10.1-inch FHD display, water and dust resistance, 6,000mAh battery, 8.1MP rear camera, 2.2MP front camera, 4G LTE connectivity, 32GB internal storage, micro SD slot for storage expansion, 3GB RAM, and Android 4.4, all wrapped in a package that is just .25-inches thick. The Xperia Z2 Tablet can be had for $499 with 2-year contract, $29.99 per month on Edge, or $599 at full retail.
As for the ALLSET prepaid plan, the entire plan hasn’t changed, you can just now connect to Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The plans, which we have detailed a couple of times, allow you to get into a base plan for $45 that includes 500MB of data plus unlimited talk and text. From there, you can add on 500MB ($5), 1GB ($10), or 3GB ($20) in data. Verizon will also toss in an extra 500MB per month if you sign-up for auto pay. The example I keep using is if you sign-up for ALLSET, then sign-up for auto pay, and then add on the 3GB data package, you would have 4GB of 4G LTE data and unlimited talk/text for $65. That is a pretty solid deal.
