The expected retail price of the LG G4 has been revealed a little early, thanks to a pair of give-aways being run by Sprint and T-Mobile. The handset will cost around $600.00 up front. This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen rough retail prices leak in competition T&Cs, and it probably won’t be the last.
The estimated Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each prize is $600.00. – Sprint

This leaves the LG G4 looking like it will be marginally less expensive than its flagship rivals, but only by around $50. The closest equivalent Samsung Galaxy S6 with 32GB of memory costs $648, as does the new 32GB HTC One M9 from Sprint.
As for the competitions, both companies are giving customers who pre-register for the LG G4 the chance to win one for free. Sprint is giving away eight free phones, while T-Mobile has 38 up for grabs over four entry periods. You can check out further details from the source links below.
It will be interesting to see if there are any major differences between the contract offers for the G4 and its rivals. Is a $50 saving enough to temp you, or is your money earmarked for another handset this year?
