Official: LG Optimus G Coming To Sprint November 11th For $200 – Pre-Orders Begin Nov. 1st


It’s one of the most impressive devices I’ve ever had the pleasure of placing inside my sweaty palms and only a few hours after the AT&T version was officially dated, now Sprint customers can get in on the excitement as well. Sprint has officially announced the LG Optimus G for a November 11th launch with pre-orders beginning on November 1st for early birds.

At only $200 with a 2-year agreement, the LG Optimus G packs a lot of bang for the buck. You’re getting a device with excellent build quality, a 4.7-inch True HD IPS 720p display, Qualcomm quad-core S4 processor, 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, NFC and running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The crème de la crème. Yes, this features LG’s all new skin but I must say, it’s definitely my favorite manufacturer UI so far (yes, I just totally went there). Don’t forget, LG recently announced the Optimus G would be receiving Android 4.2 Jelly Bean starting in December (for Korea), so we’d expect a US rollout shortly after.

We’ve been putting the device through its paces since last week, so expect a full review in the coming days. In the meantime, you can drool over the new features LG’s bringing to the table in their official product movie (trust us, it’s pretty amazing). Also, don’t forget to check out our comparison post between the Sprint and AT&T versions as well as our quick hands-on with the Sprint G at MobileCON last week. Stay tuned for more, folks.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Such an awesome device. Loved it a lot more than I thought I would.

    1. Safe to assume you’ll be picking one up at release, Chris? I’m on the fence. I’ve been patiently waiting for a Nexus worth upgrading to, but currently it looks like I may be waiting a while for that.

      1. I’m no longer with Sprint (T-Mobile for now, then AT&T w/Straight Talk down the road). While this is definitely a solid device for most Android enthusiasts and casual users (the spec sheet can attest to that), Android modders who want/need/demand the absolute latest software from Google the minute it becomes available will be better off with the Nexus version of this coming soon. :p

        It’s not a bad device by any stretch, I’m just not sure if it’s for the hardcore Google crowd (although I’ve loved using it as my day-to-day phone even over my Galaxy S3 this past week).

        1. Ughh, I just want some confirmed specifications before I make any decisions for the next two years.

          1. The only thing it’s really missing is Jelly Bean keeping me from recommending it whole heartedly. But LG confirmed an update IS coming (for Korea) but no word on how long it could take before it hits the US.

    2. Will the International version be tmo compatible? I’m with vzw still on my Gnex but I’m still considering jumping ship and trying out Tmobile. Just hate to do it and lose my unlimited data and hate tmo

  2. This has the 13MP camera right?

    1. Yeah. Totally forgot to list it amongst the beastly specs. Updated post.

  3. AT&T has never looked so appealing. Wait…what am I saying, they still aren’t appealing.

  4. With such beastly specs does it have a battery to match?

    1. Standby time is amazing even with -1 bars with Sprint in my area. Lol With regular usage, I average around 14 hours or so (about the same as my Galaxy Nexus and GS3).

  5. Is this the PadFone…?

    …Then I don’t care…

  6. at&t made it an 8mp camera. They are always doing something to limit data!

    Still have an upgrade. I don’t know if I should sell my One X and get the Nexus 4 or wait for next years version.

    1. Actually, the AT&T version has the 13 MP camera, while the Sprint version has an 8MP camera (at least from what I’ve heard).

  7. Take these specs add it to the Htc One X’s body and Droid Razr Maxxs battery and we have a deal.

  8. I hope LG does well this is really a great device

  9. Once the Nexus device/device’s arrive, this will be forgotten and price dropped.

  10. I will wait for the Nexus version of this, and put it on straight talk. VZW getting canceled at the beginning of the year for sure.

  11. Why even attempt to buy it? Its a LG nexus without jellybean. Anyone who buys this with the nexus right around the corner is insane.

    1. You mean, why would any MFG launch a cool device without the latest? I am on board with that 100%. ;) I am Phan-droid, but does this phone look like an iphone to any one else or do I need to visit lens crafters soon?
