LG G5 Available For Order On T-Mobile Starting Today With Spare Battery And 360 Cam For A Limited Time

AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon have already graciously started taking your money for the new LG flagship, and now it's T-Mobile's turn. Online G5 orders are live on the uncarrier today, and it appears to be a standard "order" not a "pre-order." We're only a few days away from the April 1st release, so that's not surprising.

LG Makes A Surprisingly Big Deal Out Of Its UX 5.0 Software Skin Upgrade With A Video And Press Release

Years and years after Samsung, HTC, and Motorola started plopping bloated skins on top of stock Android, manufacturers are still trying to create semi-artificial market differentiation with their shiny software toys. While manufacturer skins have gotten more tolerable as of late (thanks in no small part to the way they've also become much more resource efficient), it's still vaguely annoying that all these companies feel the need to spend vast amounts of time and effort completely overhauling something that already works pretty well.

Google Stops Selling The LG Watch Urbane In The Google Store

In case you missed the news, LG's Watch Urbane 2nd Edition has started popping up for pre-order after being abruptly cancelled late last year. That means Google can finally let the nearly year-old first-gen Watch Urbane die the death LG would probably prefer it died several months ago. Yes, the Urbane is no longer for sale on the Google Store.

Verizon's Version Of The LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE Edition Is Up For Pre-Order For $500, Ships On April 1st

The LG Watch Urbane 2 was exciting when it was announced, since it was the first Android Wear device capable of working as a stand-alone mobile gadget with a built-in LTE connection. Then it wasn't, because LG delayed the launch after an unspecified (but apparently quite serious) hardware defect. Now the launch is back on: AT&T announced its pre-order plans earlier this week, and now it's Verizon's turn. The carrier is taking pre-orders now, with watches shipping (and presumably ready at retail) on April 1st. No foolin'.

A lot of money, as it turns out. While the AT&T version of the Watch Urbane 2 is $360, or $200 with a two-year contract, the Verizon model is a whopping $499.99 outright.

LG G5 Available For Pre-Order On Sprint And Verizon Starting Today, Released April 1st

Verizon Says The Marshmallow Update For Its LG V10 Variant Is Ready To Go

A bunch of LG phones have been upgraded to Android 6.0 over the last few weeks, and today it's the Verizon V10's version. According to Verizon's support page, at least: the company says it's now sending the over-the-air update to customers, though of course it could be a few days or even a week or two before it reaches every device. Software version VS99022A adds Marshmallow and... well, not much else. It's just Android 6.0 with LG's software skin on top.

AT&T Has The LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE Available For Pre-Order Again At $359.99 Or $199.99 With Contract

Things did not go as planned for LG with the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, which was originally supposed to come out late last year. A hardware defect caused the company to halt the release and bring the watch back to the drawing board. Now, it's ready to go again and AT&T will let you pre-order one right now.

[Deal Alert] Forget The LG G5, My Bargain-Loving Readers, You Can Buy A New Unlocked G4 For Just $289.99

The LG G5 has some cool stuff going on with it. It has those swappable battery packs that lend the phone new powers, a powerful processor, QC 3.0 with a USB Type C plug, dual rear cameras, and a host of funky accessories. The one thing it doesn't have is a compelling price tag (it's also dog-ugly IMO). I'll tell you what does have a great price though, the unlocked LG G4 that's on sale right now on eBay for a paltry $289.99. That's less than half the price of the G5 for those of you keeping score.

If value is the most important factor in your phone-buying decision, then it's hard to find many more enticing options than the G4.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Considering Purchasing An LG G5?

The LG G5 comes into 2016 the unabashed underdog to Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. While Samsung is refining its lineup - based on a largely successful reimagining in the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge+ of last year - with more practical benefits this time around (better camera, much better battery life), LG's smartphone identity seems more than a bit confused.

Last year's V10 was very successful with owners, especially those who didn't find what they wanted in the G4 (most people I've talked to with a V10 love it), but that phone doesn't quite ring as mainstream - it's a powerhouse of specifications and general capability.
