There are plenty of people around the world now boasting the LG G3 and loving what is arguably the best smartphone currently available. Those of us in the US are still waiting (im)patiently to get our hands on one of the most talked about handsets of the year, but we will not have to wait too much longer. T-Mobile has opened its pre-order doors for the G3 letting customers reserve their unit before the smartphone arrives on shelves July 16th.The device will be available for $598 off contract, which is a little cheaper than its flagship Android rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. T-Mobile has not said whether the LG G3 will be a part of the company's instalment payment plan, but we assume it will be. That means the handset will be available for $0 upfront and around $25 per month, while the carrier has not revealed its contract pricing just yet. Expect a $199 upfront cost and monthly plan for any contract purchases though; although T-Mobile could surprise us with its now typical aggressiveness with pricing. For those still not in the know, if you do opt for the LG G3 you will be getting one of the powerhouses of the smartphone world. This is the first LG that is not just good in the company's stable, but just good against anything else on the market. The G3 packs a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display QHD screen, a 13-MP camera, and one of the cleanest takes on the Android operating system we have seen. source: T-Mobile, via: Phandroid
