G2-Thumb

LG's latest flagship device is now available on Verizon Wireless, the first carrier to offer the 5.2-inch handset in-stores. Verizon customers can pick up one by handing over $199.99 with a two-year contract or paying $599 to get the phone contract-free.

Update: If you enter the promo code RMN30 at checkout, it will take $30% off the upfront cost, which amounts to $60. This should bring the price down to $139.99 before taxes. If that code doesn't work, try VERIZON30 to gain the same savings.

Verizon-G2

The G2 is notable for its rear-key design, meaning the power button and volume keys are located on the back of the device, rather than the sides. This clears space for a very thin bezel that enhances the experience of viewing media on the Full HD IPS display. The G2's 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor makes it quite the beast, and a 13MP camera sits on the back that's good for taking perfectly adequate pictures on the go. All of this is powered by a 3,000mAh battery. Long story short, this is a phone that's more than capable of taking on the likes of the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

If you want the G2 on another carrier, you can pick it up online but will have to wait to get one in stores. AT&T started accepting online sales of the G2 last week, but its official in-store launch comes tomorrow.

Update: T-Mobile customers can also pick up the phone online now, but it won't appear inside the company's stores until next week, on September 25th.

    Can't wait to try on of these out at a Verizon Corporate store.

    promo code: RMN30 gets you 30% off the 2 year contract price! So awesome

    • Chris Martinelli

      Sweet... I just ordered mine through my companies corp. account with a 1 year contract. Same monthly rate, 1 year contract price = $229 . Great deal, for only $30 extra, I am only tied to it for 1 year.

      Good find. I've added this to the post.

    Oh how I wish this phone was on Sprint today!

  • Andy Stetson

    Gonna go put my grubby finger all over those buttons during lunch! Might try to install ez-root or something while i'm at it :D

  • Steve Freeman

    I still can't understand the buttons on the back...my fingers always rest on the sides of my phone. How can these buttons be convenient to use with one hand?

    • Cole Boggess

      Personally, when I hold my phone, my index finger sits right where the buttons are on the G2. Plus, you can double tap the screen to turn it on and off.

    Held the phone today. The buttons are in a good spot, but Verizon made them too small. ATT and others will have better buttons. This is one slick device.

    • Andy Stetson

      I thought the same, but maybe only because the security device was attached DIRECTLY below the vol- button. way to go for that store! schmucks. That aside, i'll likely be getting one very soon.

  • Andy Stetson

    Saw this in About Phone/Status when looking at one at a corporate store...

    Do the promo codes work for the full price (without the contract)?

    • JS

      I am trying to buy the g2 at full cost. The code does not work for it on verizon's website . . . darn.

  • jamaall

    does the verizon30 work with any other phones?

  • Peter Blanco

    Is it possible to use this code online to pick up at store? Or use it in store? I have one 5 minutes from my house and would much rather get it same day!

    • Lee

      Not sure if anyone replied, but yes I just did this yesterday.

      • Lee

        Used the code online to pick up at store, that is.

      • Peter Blanco

        Yup, I did it myself and the employees were shocked. It was a corporate store to boot. I used to work at Verizon for a year, never doing that again.

  • ETPhoneHomeT

    I played with one during my lunch hour today at the VZW store. Tempting, very tempting. Screen is awesome and everything is blazing fast and smooth. Not sure about LG's skin though. Waiting to see what Nexus 5 is like.

    Interesting. I've never seen that before.

  • Steven

    Just bought this phone on through verizons website. Had the option to speak to a sales rep through chat and I asked about discounts. He provided me a promo code for $50 off making the total $149. If the other codes listed don't work try speaking to a rep. Also, you can not combine codes or use other discount on top of this one.
