AT&T was scheduled to be the first US carrier to offer the LG G3 for purchase starting today, but it appears they are not alone. While Sprint initially announced that G3 pre-order would kick off today ahead of a July 18th launch, their web store (as well as retail locations) indicates that the phone is in stock immediately.
The G3 is available from AT&T for $199 with a new two-year contract or for as low as $24.17 per month with a zero-down AT&T Next installment plan. Over at Sprint pricing is pretty similar, with a monthly Easy Pay installment plan netting customers the phone for $0 down and $25 per month or $199 with a two-year service agreement. Sprint does hold one advantage: an exclusive Shine Gold color option.
We recently reviewed the G3 and had nothing but nice things to say about the device. In fact, we liked it so much that it topped our list of best Android smartphones this month. Reactions around the web have been similar in their praise of the stunning update to the LG G2. Buyers will score a phone with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 801 quad-core processing, and 13MP camera with laser autofocus.
If you plan on picking up the G3 from either Sprint or AT&T today, be sure to head on over to Android Forums and share your thoughts as you explore the phone over the coming weeks. You might even find some much needed help or the answer to any number of burning questions.
