If you plan on picking up the LG G3 from any of the carriers in the US, you likely already know that the US carriers are forcing you to buy optional accessories in order to enable wireless charging. The G3 in the UK and other countries includes wireless charging backs out of the box, much like the Verizon G2 did last year, but things have changed this time around in our home country. Carriers are greedy, we get it. They want you to spend more on the phone you just locked into for two years or spent hundreds on to get the most out of it. (more…)
LG is usually pretty quiet when it comes to standing up to the competition. While HTC is constantly head butting with Samsung, and Samsung is relentless towards Apple on the playground of social media, LG is busy in the school’s gym doing deadlifts and pushups.
Like the G3, but think it’s gigantic? Boy, does LG have the product for you. Announced late yesterday evening, the LG Beat is a miniaturized version of the company’s flagship that retains many key features in a smaller package.
LG carefully avoided the term “mini” when naming the Beat – it’s hardly compact with a 5-inch 720p display. Still, it’s a sliver smaller than its 5.5 inch cousin. (more…)
With today’s launch of Verizon’s ALLSET prepaid plan with 4G LTE, a pretty solid deal on the LG G2 has come along for the ride. Should you decide to join the prepaid world, you can add-on a brand new G2 for $299. That is without a contract, of course.
If you were to buy the same G2 without ALLSET, it would run you $499. At $299, we are talking lower than Nexus 5 levels here, but you are getting a phone that is arguably better. Keep in mind that the G2, even though it is about a year old, is probably the most underrated phone from last year. It has a gorgeous 1080p LCD display, crazy good battery life, an awesome camera, and is pretty hack-able for the most part. (more…)
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. (more…)
Spigen, one of our favorite case manufacturers, was kind enough to send over a box of cases that included their entire line-up for the newly launched LG G3. In the box of samples, we received a Slim Armor, Ultra Fit, Ultra Hybrid, and Wallet S. These range of cases covers the needs of just about anyone, so we in the video below we take each for a spin to let you see how they look, talk about how they feel on the device, and some of their individual benefits.

If you pre-ordered an LG G3 from Verizon, I would assume that it has shipped? The device officially launches tomorrow in stores and online, so if it hasn’t, you may want to check to make sure your order still exists. Verizon is normally really good about shipping pre-ordered devices so that they arrive on launch day or even earlier in some cases. We have already heard from a number of readers who are expecting devices tomorrow, thanks to shipping notifications that were sent out within the last 24 hours.
Has yours shipped? (more…)
Our LG G3 review is on the way, don’t worry, but as we put our final touches on it, we wanted to continue showing you all there is to see about this incredible phone. We gave you our 25+ tips and tricks for the LG G3 yesterday, ran through a series of features on Monday, and now have a better comparison of the device to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) to show off.
At this time, these are the three flagships of the moment. Sure, the new Moto X is still on the way, as is the Note 4, but for now, if you are considering a smartphone purchase, these are the three phones you would look at. (more…)
