CyanogenMod-Thumb

Update: CyanogenMod is also ready to make its debut appearance on the AT&T version of the LG G2 (d800), and Verizon nightlies have returned.

For many of us, it's not enough just to get our hands on a new handset. We love Android, but we're just not big fans of the changes that manufacturers make to distinguish their phones from one another. Some manufacturer customizations, like Sense 5, are arguably more attractive than Google's own efforts.

Even with the now thoroughly leaked LG Nexus 5 about to make an appearance, you can still save some cash in the short term by picking up the LG G2 from Amazon. The AT&T variant can be had right now for a mere $99.99 on contract for all new lines and upgrades.

The LG G2 on Ma Bell is closely related to the standard international edition of the device, unlike the Verizon version which took some liberties with the casing.

Hey you. Yes, you, the bitter, angst-ridden Verizon customer who's upset that you've got a snowball's chance in Hell of getting the next Nexus machine on Big Red. Let me console you with deals on a pair of new flagship devices: one that's got pretty much the same guts as the upcoming Nexus, and one that has software that looks kinda like a Nexus. Sort of. If you squint a bit.

Go ahead, show up in black - but you know what, everyone else there will be doing the same. Be bold. Be bright. Suit up in something that will make people remember you. No, not yellow, that's tacky. Purple, are you serious? No, lets go with white. Go ahead, try it on. I'll wait.

Mr. LG G2, you're looking good. The people over at AT&T are going to love you. Just you watch, now that you're available, no one's going to even bother looking at G2s in black anymore.

The LG G2 is available from plenty of carriers in the US right now, but Verizon customers have an opportunity to save some cash on LG's latest and greatest. The G2 is down to $149.99 through Wirefly, and you get an even better deal if you're porting in a number with a free $30 Visa gift card.

The LG G2 is packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a super-thin 1920x1080 LCD screen.

The LG G2 doesn't impress us all that much, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and some of you are quite attracted to the powerful flagship device LG has thrown together. If you've already made up your mind and our review has done little to dissuade you, then here's a deal that could save you $50. Amazon has the G2 available for just $149. This price applies to both new customers and those upgrading to a new device.

I am generally of the view that when it comes to high-end smartphones, most such phones are now squarely in the "pretty good" category. While the internet moans and groans about SD cards, removable batteries, and heavy-handed UI modifications, these things are trivial to most people in the day-to-day operation of a device. But much in the same way some car enthusiasts refuse to relinquish the manual transmission, some smartphone enthusiasts will not let go of the microSD slot until it is pried from their cold, dead fingers.

Both AT&T and Verizon have repeatedly and vociferously stated that their policy of locking bootloaders isn't going away any time soon. And in both cases, public-spirited security researcher Dan Rosenberg has managed to fox them on at least some hardware. Like a mischievous trickster deity, the Loki tool has been pressed into service to work around the locked bootloaders of various Samsung and LG devices, and the latest update adds support for the flagship LG G2 on both carriers.

Buying a Verizon G2? You might want to think twice about rooting it, because Big Red has specifically configured its version of the device to show whether or not the phone is rooted in the "status" sub-menu of the About Phone area. Why? Almost certainly for the express purpose of voiding warranties or returns for people who screw up their phones (or, allegedly screw up) after rooting them.

I have confirmed the rooting status flag is also present on my Verizon G2 review unit, but not the AT&T or international unlocked variants.

No one likes to be last. The LG G2 was originally slated to become available online from T-Mobile on September 18th, nearly a week after competitors Verizon Wireless and AT&T were to start offering the handset. AT&T already jumped the gun when they started offering sales online a week ago, and now T-Mobile is offering the G2 at the same time as everyone else, at least online.

Unlike AT&T and Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile offers the G2 for $99.99 upfront.
