The LG G2 is barely out of the starting gate, but there have already been some impressive discounts on the flagship device. This weekend Amazon beats them all, at least if you're a prospective Verizon customer. Amazon Wireless is offering the G2 for a single penny if you sign a new contract or add a line to your account. If you're due for an upgrade, you can get it for $99.99 - not bad at all.

The price of the G2 on AT&T hasn't been given another drop, but it's still a respectable discount. Signing a new contract, activating an upgrade, or adding a new line gets you an AT&T G2 in black or white for $99.99. Sprint's G2 isn't available yet, and it doesn't look like T-Mobile is offering its high-end phones to Amazon. The contract-free Verizon G2 is $649.99 and AT&T's G2 is $629.99. The phone is Prime-eligible in both cases.

The G2 has some of the highest specifications available right now, with a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 5.2-inch 1080p screen, and a 13MP rear camera with image stabilization, and a 3000mAh battery. Software is LG's I Can't Believe It's Not TouchWiz over Android 4.2. Whether or not you're a fan of the rear control buttons, $.01 is definitely the best deal available for this kind of hardware at the moment. Still on the fence? Then check out our full review of the G2.

    That's kind of sad......

    I guess you could say that's a....STEAL!

    They can keep their contracts and G2 give me a Nexus 5!

  • ETF

    What happens if you sign up to get a device for this cheap and then just immediately pay the ETF? On a device with a full retail price of around $600 you still come out ahead just paying the $350 Verizon fee. Can they blacklist the IMEI/serial and prevent you from activating it on another account if they catch onto the fact that you signed up just to get the phone? The ETF is meant to compensate for leaving with a subsidized device ahead of contract expiration so I don't see how they could legally do anything about it whether you leave 20 months into your contract or on day 1. I don't really have the nerve to do this, I'm sure I'll just end up paying $500 on eBay or Swappa, but just wondering. I could get this for one cent plus $350 cancellation fee.

      It's not feasible with Amazon. If you cancel within the first 180 days, they'll charge you $400 per smarthphone or tablet. This is in addition to any ETF charged by Verizon. See the details of the contract on the Amazon site.

    T-mobile @ $55/month(w fees) + $600 LG G2 = $1,920 for 2 years

    Verizon @ $75/month(w fees)+ $0.01 LG G2 = $1800.01 for 2 years

    But with T-mobile you get unlimited calls,txt, and data, every month. VZW gives you only 4GB/month data, unlimited txt and calls.

    Also, if you are already a customer, as a way to say thanks VZW will charge you "only" $100 for the phone. So that brings the total to T-mobile $1,920 vs. $1900.01 for Verizon for a twenty dollar difference with the headache of a contract and capped at 4GB/month.

    Strange, as this article mentions, this deal would happen right now, especially since Verizon's own website shows the G2 as #1 on the "Most Popular" list without this deal.
