LG’s masterpiece, the G3, will start shipping to customers of Verizon on July 17, with pre-orders starting today.

Verizon is the last of the big four carriers to announce the availability of the G3, though Big Red customers won’t have long to wait compared to users of other networks – AT&T will have a slight edge, offering the G3 starting tomorrow, but T-Mobile and Sprint will only begin selling the 5.5-incher on July 16 and July 18 respectively.

Verizon offers the G3 for $99 on contract, half of what the device costs on rival AT&T, or for $599 unlocked. You can also get it on the Verizon Edge installment plan, for $29.99 per month.

It’s worth noting that the North American versions of the G3 come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (international version feature 16GB of storage and just 2GB of RAM).

We loved the LG G3 in our extensive review – the device was the first ever to receive our Editors’ Choice award, a distinction it earned thanks to that beautiful Quad HD display, powerful internal specs, solid camera, and fresh design. Check out our video review of the G3.

Do you plan to buy an LG G3 from Verizon or from other carriers? What convinced you to pick the G3?

    I am definitely getting this phone. I currently use the GN 3 and the LG G2. I am very pleased with the G2 and can’t wait till my G3 gets here. My next upgrade will be to the GN 4!

    • Haseeb

      Which phone do you mean by GN 4?

      • Cole Raney

        I assume Galaxy Note 4

      • Jack Swag

    Well swann Verizon lol talk about going against the grain there but unfortunately it’s not going to get them any new subscribers seeing that they have some of the most expensive plans out there

    • AntRodrigues

      The only real reason why we went with Verizon.. My wife works in a Valley and Verizon is the ONLY cell company that can get coverage in that area….. Or else I would have shopped for a cheaper plan.. So there are reasons why some people will choose Verizon over the competitors.. We used to have AT&T….

    Big Red doesn’t need any more subscribers they have a billion of them..well play Verizon.

  • holtyy

    You’re review convinced me to walk away from Motorola and pick up the G3

  • Cole Raney

    Half the price of the AT&T version. Interesting. I wonder if AT&T will try to do something to combat Verizon.

    And the piece of trash iPhone 5s is still 300 for 32gb on contract, this is why I love android, better phones for much cheaper, thank you LG

    I currently use Galaxy Note 2. I will upgrade my phone either LG G3 or Galaxy Note 4 before Christmas. OMG! Only $99 on contract to get the G3 with QHD display and finished metallic design. Such an attractive price! Hopefully Galaxy Note 4 can price below $200 on contract too.

    • Jeremiah Hawkins

      No way it going to be below 200 on contract. Hopefully right at 200 on contract.

    Why is this phone so cheap?! Does anyone know how much it is for Sprint yet?

  • Eddy

    I know what I want to accomplish with my device, I just need it to be ready to accept commands and process them quickly. The G3 has performed that role as well as any handset I’ve used in the past year and, a few cosmetic issues aside, is my favorite phone of 2014.
