T-Mobile starts taking orders for the LG G5

Vlad, 29 March, 2016

As expected, today T-Mobile has started taking online orders for the LG G5. You can go ahead to the carrier's website right now and do the deed.

The phone is priced at $629.99 if you want to pay for it outright. Otherwise, you can opt for spending $0 upfront, then followed by 24 monthly installments of $26.25. As usual with T-Mobile, you'll need to sign a service agreement for the device, and if you cancel wireless service the remaining balance on the G5 becomes due.

Buying your G5 from T-Mobile means you'll also receive a free LG 360 Cam, a $200 value, as well as a free LG battery bundle (consisting of a second battery and a battery charging cradle). To take advantage of both freebies, you need to purchase the handset from the magenta carrier before April 5.

The G5 comes with a 5.3-inch QHD touchscreen, a dual rear camera (16 MP + 8 MP) with laser autofocus, OIS, and LED flash, an 8 MP selfie snapper, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 2,800 mAh removable battery. It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Not really. Z30 won all kinds of design awards the year it was released. Now that BlackBerry is getting out of the handset business (and certainly not releasing touchscreen only devices), why not have someone else use that design?

People like you are what's wrong with the cell phone market. It doesn't even show the entire photo, but because it just looks somewhat similar to the BB Z30, based on seeing the middle portion of the screen and frame, you dismiss it? Pathetic.

From the photo, that looks just like the BlackBerry Z30. What's old is new again.
