Pre-order your Sprint LG G2 starting October 11th for $200

Let the phablet season begin! Sprint has just announced pre-sale details for LG’s biggest phone yet — the LG G2. This 5.2-inch 1080p beast will go on sale later this year, and while we don’t yet have a solid release date to look forward to Sprint will be giving folks a chance to pre-order it starting October 11th for $200. That pretty much rules out all of September, so we’ll have to start doing our guesswork at some point in mid-October.

The LG G2 seems to be a very solid contender in a smartphone space that is heating up rather quickly. It was the bee’s knees when we first heard about it at the company’s New York City unveiling, with the following list of specs getting everyone excited:

  • 5.2-inch 1080p HD display
  • 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 13 megapixel optical-image stabilization camera
  • 2 megapixel front camera
  • NFC
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • 3,200 mAh battery

But Samsung quickly took the thunder back with the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (as well as the Galaxy Gear smart watch) last week. You can read all about that particular beast here, and take a nice, long glance at our hands-on coverage here.

A quick primer on its specs — which include a 5.7-inch 1080p display, an Octa Core Exynos or Snapdragon 800 processor, and a whopping 3GB of RAM — might immediately interest you if the LG G2 was something you were salivating over.

These two phones will no doubt enjoy a lot of time in our monthly best phones feature from here on out, and it won’t be long before they’re both sitting on store shelves. The hardest part will be making a decision on which to buy, so be sure to weigh all of the pros and cons before biting the bullet on either one. We’ll be looking to bring you a review of both these bad boys soon, though, so hopefully that’ll make things a little bit easier on you. Don’t forget to catch our G2 unboxing right here!

    decision already made. the wife will be getting this one and I will be getting the note 3

  • PolarBear

    What internal memory does this Sprint G2 have? 16GB or 32GB?

    • HotInEER

      LG only made the phone 32GB and 64GB. Knowing Sprint, they will only have the 32GB and not the 64GB, and if they do, it will be several months later.

    Sucks its coming out a whole month from now…well for Sprint anyway. I may be copping this in a week or so w/ AT&T…. may have to say bye bye to my HTC One. But in all reality I really should wait to see the One Maxx

  • Jean Rivera

    Picking it up on Thursday, Verizon version unless they come out with 16gb internal storage.

  • veccster

    Note 3 is my choice. I need the removable battery capability. If that wasn’t a concern for me, I’d probably wait for the One Max.

  • leocal79

    this is the best option for me. I am getting the Verizon version on the 12th. already got a cheap case for it and its smaller than the Droid DNA even though it has a larger screen. Note 1 too wide note 2 too big. Note 3 massive and I have big hands its just getting out of control. I love that LG has rid themselves of all the bezel and put the keys in a easy to reach place. plus this thing is a beast. I can survive with 2gb of ram and a snapdragon 800

    • Canon User

      Kudos for you, however I would like to point out that you implied the Note 3 was larger than the Note 2 when in fact it is not.

    We live in a world where Nexus devices are $200… so please stop saying “pre order for $200″ in your headline when you really mean “$200 down.”

    • HotInEER

      Your play on words means the same thing. Either way you are paying out of pocket $200 for the phone.

        Funnysad.

  • PhineasJW

    In AnandTech’s testing the GSM version of this had the highest battery life ever recorded. Very promising.

  • RobertNeal

    Isn’t it 3,000 mAh, not 3,200 mAh?

    • HotInEER

      Yes should be 3,000mAh.

  • HotInEER

    This will be my perfect birthday gift. Birthday on Oct 28th, so will be having the wifey pick they up for me. Can’t wait. Now I need to decide if I want to sell my HTC One or give it to one of my kids.

  • Canon User

    Dear Sprint:

    I really wanted this phone. But alas, it has no SD slot, non-removable battery, and no stylus technology.

    Please announce your Note 3 release date?

    Thanks!

  • Cosmix

    Already ordered with AT&T, seems like a great choice in a great size. Note 3 seems Too big, while Moto X just didn’t appeal. Nice to see LG stepping up their game

  • Jason
