lg g3 aa (5 of 22)

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.
