The LG G5 will be available from 1 April but you wouldn't be a fool if you pre-ordered one from several of the UK's networks or retailers now. That's because they are offering some amazing deals for the flagship Android smartphone.

The phone was a real show stopper at Mobile World Congress in February, proving that you can still do something a bit different in a saturated market.

It has a 5.3-inch 2560 x 1440 IPS LCD display, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of on board storage. And there's a microSD card slot for expansion.

There's also a USB Type-C port and QuickCharge 3.0 for superfast charging. The cameras are 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel rear and front respectively.

What's most different about the LG G5 however is that it is compatible with an accessory line-up LG calls "LG Friends". These are modular add-ons that change the abilities of the phone and include the LG Cam Pro, which adds a better camera, LG Hi-Fi Pro, which improves the audio output dramatically as it's co-designed with Bang & Olufsen, and an extended battery pack.

These all cost extra but to find out how much you can get the main LG G5 smartphone and what pre-order deals are available, read on. We'll also update this round-up as other details become known to us.

To celebrate the phone's connection with Bang & Olufsen, Carphone Warehouse is including a pair of B&O Play H3 in-ear headphones worth £149 with every pre-order while they last.

The high-street retailer is offering the phone across several networks, including EE, O2, Vodafone and its own iD provider. One of the most economical price plans is £37.49 a month for a 24-month plan and £29.99 upfront cost.

That'll get you 5G of 4G data a month and unlimited texts and minutes on EE.

Alternatively, you can get the monthly cost down to £26 a month if you pay £149.99 upfront. That gets you 3GB of monthly data and unlimited texts and minutes on Vodafone.

You can also get deals without upfront costs for the handset from £37.50 a month.

The grey, gold and silver versions of the LG G5 are all available.

Instead of Carphone Warehouse you can opt to go straight to the networks. EE, for example, is offering even more freebies. It ups the ante by giving away a similar set of B&O Play H3 in-ear headphones and adding a B&O Play S3 Bluetooth speaker - a combination set it claims is worth over £400.

It only ranges the grey (Titan) and gold handsets, but plans start at £29.99 a month for 24 months, with the handset costing £99.99 upfront.

That will get you 1GB of 4G data, 500 minutes of talktime and unlimited texts.

If you want to pay less upfront for the phone, the cheapest deal is £39.99 a month for 24 months with a £9.99 upfront cost. That gets you 4GB of data and unlimited texts and minutes.

Ordering the phone from EE will also get you Wi-Fi Calling and 4G calling, which means that voice calls will switch to data connections if the mobile signal is not strong enough. It will default to your Wi-Fi network at home, for example. You only get that when ordered directly from EE.

If you're after a new telly and willing to wait until the 1 April release date, Virgin Media has a staggering deal for LG G5 purchases. It is giving away a free 32-inch LG HD TV when customers purchase the phone from that date.

The 32LH510 TV is worth £250 and will be available from launch day, so just hold off from pre-ordering if you want to snag one.

Freestyle price plans will start at £31 a month with no upfront fee for the LG G5 itself. That will include 250MB of 3G data.

Virgin Media's Freestyle plans also offer the ability to increase or decrease the monthly airtime tariff every month. And the Wi-Fi Buddy app will hook you up to thousands of secure Wi-Fi hotspots around the UK for free.

The phone will be available from Virgin Media's website and in-store from 1 April.

Like Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone is giving away a free pair of B&O Play H3 in-ear heaphones with every pre-order on a Red or Red Value Bundle plan.

The first 2,000 customers who pre-order the phone will get the additional headphones, worth £149, and you need to get your order in by 31 March as the phone ships on 1 April, like with others.

Vodafone is offering the LG G5 in grey (Titan) and gold colours on 24-month price plans, starting at £29 a month with an upfront cost of £49 for 1GB of 4G data, 1,000 talk minutes and unlimited texts.

Alternatively, you can get the phone for a £9 upfront cost on a £34 a month tariff. That includes 2GB of data and unlimited minutes and texts.

Vodafone Red Value plans also include six-months of Netflix, Now TV, Spotify or Sky Sports and inclusive calls to the UK from Europe from £39 a month with a £9 upfront handset fee.
