Preorder LG G4 from Verizon on May 28-Available June 4

Verizon officially unveiled the poorly kept secret of their LG G4 in-store release date. We found out earlier today that the LG G4 will be available for pre-order from Verizon starting 5/28 (that is tomorrow as of this writing), with in-store availability scheduled for June 4. We already circled June 4 as the day of Verizon’s launch due to the earlier Best Buy preorder leaks for all carriers. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Verizon G4 is the price, at $549, or $22.91 a month for Edge, this is the cheapest you’ll find a G4 from a US carrier. This price actually puts me in a bit of a dilemma, I preordered a Verizon G4 from Best Buy, and I ordered a T-Mobile version in brown leather this morning, which one do I keep? There are so many great promotions for the G4, from T-Mobile’s free 128 GB microSD card, to Best Buy’s free $100 gift card. With all these sweet incentives on top of LG’s free goodie bag, it is truly hard for any Android enthusiast to pass up this flagship.

Verizon did have one surprise in store for us today however, they unveiled the new LG G Pad X8.3. The G Pad X8.3 will run $12.49 per month for 24 months with Edge, or $299 at full retail. It also has a pretty terrible name. From the $299 price, I assume this is not a high-end device, Verizon isn’t in the business of selling high-end tablets for the low. It has a 1.5GHz unnamed octa-core processor (hint that its a low to mid range device), 8.3-inch Full HD IPS display, dual stereo speakers, 8MP/2MP camera setup, 16GB internal storage with microSD support, and a 4,800mAh battery. It does run Lollipop, so if you want a mid-range tablet running Lollipop it might be cool, but you can probably find a mint condition Nexus 9 for a similar or cheaper price.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
