Patience of those waiting for the LG V20’s US market debut has finally been rewarded, as the phone has just started to make its way to the US customers. The LG V20 is now available nationwide through carriers like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular and other big electronics retailers, giving its potential buyers a wide range of purchase options. See which carrier offers best price on the new LG’s phablet.
Unlike its predecessor, LG V10, the V20 hit shelves of all major US carriers. Let’s take a closer look which service provider offers the best deal on the LG’s flagship phablet.
The first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box – LG V20 – is now available at AT&T priced at $829. However, if you don’t like paying its full retail price, you can enroll for the AT&T Next plan within which you will get the LG V20 for just $27.67 per month for 30 months, or for $34.59 each of 24 months of the instalment plan.
To make its offer harder to resist AT&T is throwing in the H3 by B&O Play headphones completely out of charge, and if you trade in your existing phone you can earn up to $200. In addition, those who will buy the LG V20 on AT&T Next may also get up to $695 in bill credit or a free LG G Pad X 10.1 if you sign up for a traditional two-year contract. As for shipping and color options the AT&T offers both: the Titan Black and Silver variants, while shipping is expected to kick off between November 2nd and 4th.
If you don’t like to bind yourself with a service provider contract then you may consider Sprint as the carrier sells the LG V20 slightly cheaper than AT&T. Instead of paying $829, at Sprint you will be charged $792, which translated to savings of $37. In case the off-contract price is still too high for you, Sprint prepared several other options you may pick among. First of all, you can buy the LG V20 for $175 upfront and 24 monthly installments each of $25.71. Secondly, if you trade in your existing phone, the monthly payment will be reduced to $17.38.
Furthermore, you may also choose a two-year agreement option, then after mail-in rebate you will be able to get the phone for just $349.99. Just as AT&T, Sprint also gives bonuses in a form of a B&O H3 earphones to each purchase of the V20 no matter which buying option you opt for and a $200 credit if you trade in your smartphone. Although Sprint sends the ordered devices immediately, currently it only offers the Titan Black model.
T-Mobile offers the LG V20 for $769.99 contract-free which is even cheaper than at Sprint, or for $49.99 upfront and $30 each of 24 months of the financing plan. Just as other carriers, the Un-carrier is also handing out a free B&O H3 earphones to each purchase. When it comes to color options, here you have also no choice as T-Mobile has only the Titan Black variant in stock.
Moving on to the US Cellular, the carrier offers the Titan Black LG V20 off-contract for just $699.99, which is $129 cheaper than at AT&T, and $70 cheaper than at T-Mobile. Also their installment plans seem to be more tempting. In case you can’t afford the phone’s full price, then you can grab the LG V20 for $32.40 per month within a 20-month financing plan, for $37 per month within a 24-month plan, or finally for $21.60 per month if you enroll for a 30-month plan. No matter which route you go, US Cellular will give you a pair of free B&H Play earphones and a $100 promo card.
Last but surely not least, Verizon Wireless seems to be the most generous of all discussed today carriers as it sells the LG V20 for $672 with no strings attached, or for zero upfront and $28 per month on a 24-month instalment plan. Except for the bonus B&O Play earphones, Verizon is also giving its customers a chance to get the LG Stylo 2V for $1 monthly within a 24-month plan. Similarly to AT&T, the carrier distributes both the Titan Black and Silver color variants.
B&H and Newegg
If deals involving long term contracts aren’t your thing, then you may consider buying the LG V20 through one of the US major retailers. For example, B&H sells the Titan Black model for $799.99. The price includes a free B&O H3 earphones and a bonus LG G Pad 7.0 8GB tablet. But the store starts shipping no sooner than on November 1st.
Going further, Newegg has also listed the LG V20 at its online store, where you can grab it for $799.99. If you pre-order the phone at Newegg, quite traditionally you will get the B&O H3 earphones, LG G Pad tablet and the Orico Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Power Bank completely out of charge. However, remember that if you want to take advantage of the freebies, you need to order the phone before November 20th. Meanwhile, Newegg is expected to start shipping the Titan Black model on November 11th, whereas those who want the Silver version, will need to armor themselves in patience as it won’t be in stock until November 24th.
As you see the LG V20 is available within a variety of deals, both: those requiring long-term contracts and those completely bondless, so that every potential buyer may find a purchase option proper to him. If you want to buy the phone upfront then Verizon is the best alternative here, but before making purchase decision take into account carrier’s switching costs if you’re not the carrier’s existing subscriber. If you like bonuses, then you should choose Newegg, whereas those in need for Silver option may choose among Verizon, AT&T and Newegg deals, but note that if you need your phone immediately then Newegg isn’t the seller for you.
