T-Mo LG G3 to feature 3GB RAM

Screen Shot 2014-05-30 at 20.12.22

Soon after LG announced the G3 earlier this week, T-Mobile also ensured we all know it would be carrying the device from its release date. Also, as it turns out, T-Mobile’s version is the higher-spec model with 3GB Ram. Rather unusually, LG opted to offer two storage models with varying amounts of RAM. The 16GB model has 2GB RAM while the 32GB model has 3GB RAM.

Although pricing hasn’t been announced officially yet, in T-Mobile’s competition┬áto win a beta model it suggests a value of $650. These competition values are normally between $50-$100 away from the actual retail pricing. So, we can expect a price of between $550-$650. On a 24-month EIP, that could be anywhere between $23-$27 per month.

And just to whet your appetites, T-Mobile’s product man, Des (@askdes on Twitter) has been teasing its launch with unboxings and snapshots of the boxload of beta devices in his office. I don’t know whether he’s being plain cruel, or if it’s great social marketing. I’ve embedded the unboxing below.

    Sweet thank you T-Mobile

  • Qbancelli


    Even though I have no intention to buy it. Lol

    • Cam Bunton

      Hehehe.. can’t resist the opportunity to win something, right?

      • A$AP Chris

        or the opportunity to promote shitty apps and cover the entire bottom of the screen with ads, right?

        • BlackJu

          Or the opportunity to be a $hithead on the internet, where there are no consequences for acting like a terrible human being

        • A$AP Chris

          If you feel that my comment qualifies as the barometer for what makes a shitty human being as opposed to not being one, you have no idea how the world works.

        • BlackJu

          No, I called you a $hithead, and called the internet a place where people can act like terrible human beings. Cam has no control over this and if you have a problem with it, I’m sure he’ll give you an email address for Phonedog feedback.

        • Cam Bunton

          I have no control over ads. But, if you have concerns and want to feedback you can get in touch with PhoneDog. I – personally – am a big believer in feedback, helps us learn, do things better, or at least explain why we do things.

      • Chocolate_Star69

        You gotta be Fuck’n kidding me. Right? What about that wack azz post you posted below?

  • D_Wall__

    Not gonna Lie, This is a great looking phone. I wonde rit its worth getting rid of my Nexus 5 for…

    • Justin Merithew

      It’s an upgrade in pretty much every way, the only possible drawback is LG’s skinned version of Android over stock. This is why I’m going to wait a little bit to see if T-Mobile carries the Moto X+1 before I jump on the G3. I like stock Android enough to sacrifice a little bit in the specs department, but different phones are for different types of people.

      • tirtawn

        Thats true.

        One thing that I will miss if its “pure stock”, is the Wifi Calling. Really useful when you are overseas. Hence I “sacrifice” a little bit, does not really need to be pure stock but needs to have wifi calling for my next phone.

        • Justin Merithew

          If T-Mobile carries the X+1 directly it should have WiFi calling, this is because Motorola’s aren’t true stock devices, their UI tweaks are just very minimal. My fingers are crossed that we get it, the X had all the features I could really want in a phone, and I assume its successor would build on that.

      • Zack S

        same. I definitely love how the G3 is looking right now, but I want to see whats up with the new Moto X as well

  • Fr0stTr0n

    Note 3 says “Welcome to last year”

    • $15454173

      You had Quad HD last year?!! Wow! We know already, you love the Note. Get a room…

      Edit: My reply to Fr0stTr0n was off base.

      • Fr0stTr0n

        Article is talking about 3 gigs of ram. Reading comprehension, learn it son.

        • $15454173

          Deleted my own comment. Noor Mahmoud, thanks you for being a voice of reason. And to Fr0stTr0n, sorry, I apologize. I agree that your comment was about the context and my response was not respectful and way off base.

        • Noor Mahmoud

          You brother and sister should stop arguing. You are both part of the proud Android family and should act like it.

        • $15454173

          You are right. I appreciate your comments.

        • Noor Mahmoud

          If only everyone on the internet was like yourself…

  • tirtawn

    This phone has everything that I want except its using 801. If only LG put 805 processor then I would finally move from Nexus 4.

    • Justin Merithew

      The 805 still hasn’t been released. The 801 is the best processor they can put in it now.

      • tirtawn

        Thats true. 805 should be out “soon” since previously it was targeted for first half of 2014. So I rather wait for 1 more month to see whats coming.

        • Justin Merithew

          If the rumors of HTC and Samsung working on QHD phones with Snapdragon 805s come true, LG will probably have a 805 variant of their own to compete. I’ve kinda given up on the whole spec arms race. If the Moto X+1 provides as solid of an experience as the X, I’ll probably go with that.

        • JBrowne1012

          If the sd 805 is slated for half the year that is just for availability imagine it will take at least 3 months for a company to implement them in next gen products. So products with sd 805 most likely won’t show til fall

  • Deadeye37

    This looks perfect to play Coocoo Planet on!!!

    Actually, if I got this phone, the first thing I would do is NOT play Coocoo Planet!


    Unless something horrible emerges I will definitely buy this phone.

  • mingkee

    I will pay off Note 3 and sell it, and get this phone.

    • superg05

      blasphemy the only decent replacement for a Note 3 is a Note 4

      • mingkee

        The KNOX is enough to make me jump ship.

  • besweeet

    Phone has 2 “reviews” on T-Mobile’s LG G3 product page… Someone should do something about that.

    Plenty of people are making them as “unhelpful,” though.

  • Sharklover

    Great move. Only disappointing thing was not waterproof but 1w speaker may make up for it. I had a s5 for a day and returned it. Kept my s4. The G3 seems much better. S5 usb cover was very bad.

    • Orlando G.

      Yea, the water resistant would have made this even sweeter but definitely not a deal breaker for me.

  • Orlando G.

    Oh man, I can’t wait! The S5 and M8 didn’t impress me enough to leave my M7. I’ve owned all the Galaxy series up to the S4. My co-worker has the M8 and the camera quality still doesn’t impress me but at least they fixed the purple haze (which my phone still has).

    I’m really glad that TMO is getting the 3GB RAM model.

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    Looks like a winner but its too big

    • Laststop311

      too big? If anything we need to step up to 6.5″ that’s my maximum size limit and where i’d like to be with my phone

      • dontsh00tmesanta

        5″ is my max. Used to have note 3 loved it but hated I couldnt use it one handed. So Im now on the htc one m8

        • MadJoe

          I have the Note 3, and I keep going back and forth with it’s size. My wife just upgraded her S4 to an S5, which I used to think the S4 was just way too small (after using the Note, anyway), but now I’m looking at her S5 with envy. I’m going to wait for the G3 to be released though, and see how that feels before making any rash decisions.

  • Laststop311

    Surprised t-mo is getting the higher specd one. They almost always get the crappiest version available of any one phone

  • damn that phone is beautiful

  • WD

    But no Band 12 support :-(

  • Chris

    I wouldn’t believe this just yet. Could just be a place holder.

  • Judy

    wayyyy to big for a small woman’s hands. I’ve been waiting for this release for my daughter.. it’s way too big.. She does not want an Iphone.. which is small. Why doesn’t Tmobile have the Moto.

  • DUH

    why don’t you just buy the moto x its been supported by tmobile for quite some time now ?
