The LG G2, easily one of the best phones of 2013 (our review), is in our possession and ready to be handed over to one of you. That’s right, it’s LG G2 contest time! The variant we have up for grabs today works on AT&T’s network, and is for the most part identical to the international variant, or in other words, the way LG envisioned the device. That means you don’t get the odd adjustment to the back buttons that Verizon tossed on to their variant, nor do you get wireless charging. But the rest of it is pure awesome.
We’re talking the 5.2-inch FHD LCD, that incredible soft touch when swiping around it, features like KnockOn, an amazing multi-point autofocus camera, and battery life for days. If it weren’t for the existence of phones like the Nexus 5 and Moto X, this might be topping our list of phones for the year. It really is that good.
So who wants it? (more…)
Amazon might be the king of Cyber Monday deals, but that’s no surprise if you consider the variety of products that can be purchased through their online shop. I will say, that it can often times be somewhat overwhelming to sift through, especially on days like today where all you want to do is find the best possible deals to spend your hard earned money on. So to hopefully help you out some, we have gone ahead and cruised through the phone listings of Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint to find you the best deals available.
In the lists below, you’ll see phones like the brand new white LG G2, Moto X in either black or white, and HTC One in a handful of colors for as little as $0.01 on new contract. You’ll also find the Nexus 5 for Sprint in either black or white for as little as $9.99 on contract.
The full retail prices can’t match what Motorola is doing today or what Google does everyday, but this is certainly an option for those who don’t mind signing a new contract. (more…)
The LG G2 in white has finally landed on Verizon’s virtual online store shelves. The device is also here at an introductory/Cyber Monday price of FREE on new 2-year contract. We were expecting this variant of LG’s new flagship to arrive much sooner, but Big Red has gone with a white theme for this mega-holiday shopping weekend, and a white G2 certainly fits right in. (more…)
It could be that today is Black Friday, but full retail pricing on some of Verizon’s top devices seems to be dropping to pretty reasonable numbers. We’re talking the brand new HTC One Max at $499, a phone that launched 8 days ago for $299 on-contract and $599 off. (more…)
Verizon customers that are into the rooting and custom ROM game, that happen to rock an LG G2, should know that your vanilla AOSP dreams have been answered in the form of Gummy ROM. While this ROM isn’t completely stock, as a few tweaks have been made and additional features have been installed, this is essentially a clean build of Android 4.4 running on the device. (more…)
Late last night, @evleaks posted up a leaked press render of the G2 from LG in White. The device has Verizon branding all over it, and from the previous information we posted back on the 7th, we could possibly see this device hit Big Red’s network this Thursday, November 14. (more…)
Update: Forget Verizon for a minute, Amazon is listing the LG G2 as being $199 OFF-contract. Yes, that’s $199 for one of the best phones of the year without a contract. I’d imagine it’s a mistake, but hey, might be worth attempting to buy. (Edit: AT&T Black G2 is $199 off-contract as well.)
Update 2: Amazon has corrected the pricing. If you got in on the deal, now we wait to see if anyone’s orders ship.
Update 3: Since the Amazon deal is dead, feel free to use coupon code “slick50″ during checkout at Verizon to get the phone for free on-contract.
Update 4: Folks are pouring in saying that their devices are shipping from Amazon. That’s great to hear, and we are excited Amazon decided to honor these deals. If your order was canceled, feel free to call them and state the situation. Some are reporting that they are reinstating orders now.
Who here has a new device on its way? (more…)
Almost a month ago, we first heard a report suggesting that MotoMaker would finally arrive for the Moto X on Verizon by November 11. We can now confirm through multiple sources that Verizon and Motorola have indeed scheduled November 11 as MotoMaker launch day. It has been months since the phone and customization service first launched as an AT&T exclusive deal, with November being rumored as the end of the exclusivity from the beginning. Come Monday, those on Big Red should finally be able to make their own Moto X. (more…)
