Verizon is finally joining the LG G3 party as they announced that they are now accepting pre-orders for the much heralded Android smartphone. While there is still no announcement when it will actually be available at their retail stores, the product page reveals that the units will start shipping out to those who pre-ordered by July 17.

Mobile carrier competitors, AT&T and T-Mobile had already previously announced when the LG G3 will be available and Verizon is the latest one to tell their subscribers that they can already start dreaming of the smartphone that has been called one of the best Android devices by several tech websites and gurus. For a 2 year agreement with Verizon, subscribers need only pay $99.99 to avail themselves of the unit. If they are already subscribed to Verizon Edge, they need to pay a monthly fee of $29.99 for 20 months, but with a monthly discount as well, depending on the data plan they have.

LG’s flagship phone has a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen with a 2560×1440 resolution, and that’s just one of the things that people are loving about the device. For mobile camera enthusiasts, they can look forward to the laser auto focus feature that gives the 13MP camera the ability to take sharp pictures even when there’s low light. There’s also the Optical Image Stabilization that helps reduce the blurriness of photos, even while taking shaky and action shots.

In terms of connectivity, since the LG G3 is XLTE ready, Verizon assures subscribers that they will be able to take advantage of the network’s 4G LTE bandwidth. Productivity is also a highlight for the latest LG device, as it has its own Smart Keyboard which makes typing on your phone a bit easier. It also has a Virtual Personal Assistant, because voice-activated commands and reminders are now the way to go.
