LG G2 will be available for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade (excluding taxes and surcharges). New and existing customers can pre-order LG G2 beginning Friday, Oct. 11, at www.sprint.com/lgg2. All consumers who take advantage of the online pre-order will receive a free Quick Window case ($49.99 value) with the G2 device.
The first U.S. smartphone to launch with the new Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor, LG G2 is remarkably thin and light and features a massive 5.2-inch, 1080p IPS LCD display. Along with a processor as powerful as those in many laptops, LG G2 provides features that maximize on-screen multitasking with the simultaneous use of multiple apps. LG G2 is also equipped with 24-bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like sound quality and a 13-megapixel Full HD camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), giving users the ability to capture crystal clear images while in motion.
“In addition to an impressive lineup of smart features, LG G2’s innovative design makes it a stand-out device in the current mobile marketplace,” said James Fishler, senior vice president-Marketing, LG Electronics USA. “Equipped with a single rear key that controls multiple functions of the device and gives users a nearly edge-to-edge viewing experience on a 5.2-inch HD IPS display, LG G2 is the ultimate example of intelligent features meeting intuitive design.”
LG G2 brings to users an unprecedented smartphone experience and helpful customization features such as:
KnockON – instead of hitting a power button, tap twice on the display to wake the G2; Answer Me, will automatically answers calls when you put the phone to your ear.
Slide Aside – allows users to do a three-finger gesture to "slide" open apps off the screen for multitasking.
Text Link – another interesting idea, where the phone takes relevant text and inserts embeddable links to them in other apps.
Guest Mode – also known as ‘Kid Mode,’ which allows another user to access the phone by drawing a different gesture on the lock screen with a secondary unlock pattern3.
What's really frustrating is that the phone will be in stores Friday Nov 8, however the pre-orders won't get theirs shipped until Monday Nov 11! What's the point in pre-ordering then?
I totally agree!!!! I am really frustrated as well at how Sprint is treating preorders on the LG G2 and we seem to be getting the shaft. People who preordered have all already prepaid for the phone. Its not like we didn't pay for the phone yet and are charged when it is shipped. It is absolutely pathetic that at least not all preorders before Oct 31st have not been shipped out yet. I have heard of some folks who preordered on Oct 11th begin receiving notifications that they will be getting their G2 delivered tomorrow. Sprint better step up their game and begin shipping massive amounts of LG G2's all day tomorrow for preorders with overnight shipping to get the phone in people's hands by Friday, 11/8.
EDIT: Just as I was just finished ranting, I received an email from Sprint saying my order has shipped and it looks like I will be getting it this Friday, 11/8 just like they promised.
We are getting it two months after everyone else. The rest of the world has it already ( third world countries included) and the saddest part is sprint has had the phones ready to ship out for almost a month now
I got my shipping email last night as well. I hope all who pre-ordered early gets their phone by tomorrow! The cut off for that shipping date was Monday Nov 4. All those who pre-ordered after that will get their phones shipped starting Monday Nov 11.
