The LG G6 is now becoming available in the UK - if you go to the right places. So here's all the latest information on the LG G6 prices, deals and tariffs. We'll take a look at what contract prices to expect for various data sizes across the UK's favourite networks and also potential options if you want to buy it upfront and tie it to a cheap SIM only deal.
Unlocked-Mobiles will give you a black or ice platinum G6 with next-day-delivery for £648.98. You can pick between in terms of colours, while the internal storage is set at 32GB.
On Three, the G6 starts at £29 a month on a 24-month contract with an upfront cost of £129. Although you'll probably need more data than that tariff is offering (a mere 500MB) with 300 minutes and unlimited texts. Our pick of the deals is £79 up front on a £38pcm contract for 2GB of data.
At EE, the LG G6 is available at a special launch offer of £9.99 upfront on a £45.99 a month, 24 month plan, with unlimited UK minutes and texts and 5GB (normally 2GB) of data.
Sky Mobile is offering the G6 from £36 per month on a Swap24 plan, which it claims is the UK’s lowest monthly price on a deal that has no upfront costs and 1GB of data. Then it's pay as you use for calls and texts or free unlimited calls and texts if you're a Sky TV customer.
Here are all our latest LG G6 contract deals:
Why should you buy an LG G6?
LG has opted for the Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the newer and more expensive 835 and the G5's modular add-ons have been scrapped. These cost-effective decisions don't necessarily point towards a cheaper phone though, especially given the Quad HD screen and the general premium design of the G6 as LG's new flagship mobile. The UK pound is weaker than the South Korean Won compared to this time last year too.
The new longer-format screen covers almost the entire face of the phone and the menu buttons have been absorbed by it too. It's those curvy corners at the screen's edge that really make the phone stand out though. With so many similar-looking phones out there, this visual flourish could help steal some of Samsung's thunder. That's if the LG G6 has the right price this time.
How much will the LG G6 cost without a contract?
Last year's LG G5 contract launch deals
This is a tricky one. While the phone itself should be cheaper to produce at launch than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the iPhone 7, LG contracts haven't been cheap in the past. The LG G5 prices stayed high long after launch, making the likes of the Galaxy S7 Edge or iPhone7 appear better value for money. Let's take a look at 2016's G5 launch deals for comparison.
FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 2GB data | £34pm
Vodafone stood out from the crowd last year by offering the handset for free with this 2GB data deal. That being said, £34 a month for 2GB of data wasn't generous at all. If you didn't need a lot of data, you'd be much better off buying the phone upfront and grabbing a cheap SIM only deal. The total cost over 24 months was £816.
£49.99 upfront | 1000 minutes | Unlimited texts | 2GB | £34.99pm
The best EE deal was available direct from the network itself and was oddly good value (for EE). £49.99 upfront wasn't that expensive when compared to pricier offerings from Samsung and Apple either. Slightly expensive per month for just 2GB though. The total cost of over 24 months was £889.75.
£29.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data | £37.49pm
This was the best mid-sized data deal around for the LG G5 and EE's superfast 4G network was a fine match for it. This deal was only £40 extra (over two years) than EE's 2GB deal, making it the better value option for EE fans. Total cost over 24 months was £929.75.
£49.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB | £32.50pm
O2's deals were nothing to shout about either to be honest, but the network has never been cheap. You'd only sign up for this if you wanted in on the admittedly very handy O2 Priority membership which provides weekly discounts or freebies in food, drink and entertainment. Total cost over 24 months was £829.99.
£49.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 11GB | £36pm
Vodafone was struggling with its poor reputation for customer service last year and was trying to lure customers back with some of the cheapest big data deals around. For less than the price of EE's 5GB deal, Vodafone had this offer for a whopping 11GB of data for arguably the best launch deal available of any network. Total cost over 24 months was £913.99.
So, what about the LG G6 launch prices?
LG G6 | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data | £37pm
As an example, we'll list a hypothetical deal with EE, the UK's most popular network. Larger data deals will surely drive the price up - 3GB is a solid average of most people's requirements and a good baseline. With so much evidence pointing towards a more expensive phone, we wouldn't be shocked to see the upfront cost be closer to £100 instead of the G5's £50. The total cost over 24 months would be £987.99.
What about the other networks? We imagine the O2 deals will be similarly-priced if not a tad more. The Three network didn't get the G5 at launch, but were very expensive when it eventually started stocking it. Vodafone could be your dark horse for cheap LG G6 deals over 5GB.
If you're ready to grab a LG G6 at launch, you're in the right place to find the best prices for the LG G6 pre-order deals. We'll update this page as soon as prices are announced and you'll also find a comparison chart with the best contract options.
