The LG G4 is out now, so the G3 is technically yesterday's news. It's still a fine phone, though, and the price is getting more reasonable all the time. You can pick up a new unlocked one right now for $330 on eBay. It was most recently on sale for $340, and it's still around $400 on Amazon.

The OTA should come down in the form of a 689MB package, which will take you approximately an eon to download from AT&T's decrepitly slow update server. Read More
