If you've been eyeing the latest LG phablet you're in luck, as the LG G2 is now available for purchase from Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S.

Sprint has opened pre-registrations for the smartphone as well, but will release it in October.

Earlier in September, AT&T had revealed that the LG G2 would be available for purchase online from Sept. 6 and will hit the carrier's brick and mortar stores from Sept. 13. Verizon began offering the smartphone from Sept. 12 as promised and now T-Mobile too has hopped onto the bandwagon and is offering the LG G2 earlier than expected.

The new LG G2 features a 5.2-inch Full HD (1080p) IPS LCD display. Under the hood, it houses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, which is clocked at 2.2GHz. The smartphone also has Adreno 330 graphics, 32GB of on-board storage and 2GB of RAM.

The LG G2 also boasts a 13-megapixel primary camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), as well as a 2.4-megapixel front-facing camera. It also packs in a 3,000 mAh battery. The device comes pre-loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean but is expected to get updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean soon.

We take a look at which U.S. carrier has the best deal on offer for the LG G2.

T-Mobile

T-Mobile is offering the LG G2 in two hues, black and white, for a $99.99 down payment followed by $21 monthly installments for two years, as part of its Simple Choice Plans. Alternately, you can purchase the smartphone outright but be prepared to shell out $603.99, which is more than the AT&T price for the unlocked version of the LG G2.

However, T-Mobile is offering consumers a Quick Window case with every purchase, which normally costs $49.99.

AT&T

AT&T is offering only the black model of the LG G2. Customers can opt for either one-year or two-year contracts, which will set them back by $449.99 and $199.99, respectively.

On the other hand, purchasing the LG G2 contract-free from the carrier will set consumers back by $574.99. However, unlike T-Mobile, AT&T is not offering any free accessories.

Verizon

Verizon is offering the LG G2 for $199.99 on a two-year contract. Alternately, picking up the smartphone contract-free will set you back by $599.99, slightly more expensive when compared to AT&T's asking price for the unlocked handset.

However, like AT&T, Verizon is not offering any free accessories either. To purchase the LG G2 from Verizon head here.

Sprint

Sprint will be the last in the race to release the LG G2, as the carrier has only announced pre-registrations and is set to release the smartphone nearly a month later, on Oct. 12.

The Sprint variant of the LG G2 will cost $199.99 on a two-year contract and those who pre-register online will receive a free Quick Window case. To pre-register for the Sprint LG G2 head here.
