The best Samsung Galaxy deals this month

Looking for a contract plan on a Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ or S7? We’re here to help you find the best deal, whether you want a nice low monthly cost, nothing to pay upfront, or tons and tons of data.

There are plenty of ways to get your hands on one - you can buy it straight from Samsung and get a SIM-only deal, for instance. The best way to spread the cost out, however, is to take out a contract plan from a mobile network.

What’s the Samsung Galaxy S8 like?

Samsung's latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S8, hit the shops in April 2017. It was a substantial improvement on its predecessor, coming with a massive screen, a new AI, and more processing power than ever.

Design

Samsung's eighth generation handset looks impressive right off the bat, sporting a smooth (and very tough) glass case. The display reaches almost right to the edges, curving sleekly down at the sides. You’ll find it in either black, grey, or a sparkly arctic silver.

Damage resistant

The glass screen is made from extremely tough Gorilla Glass 5. Its resistance to damage is among the best on the market, which means that there's less chance you'll have to get the screen replaced anytime soon. On top of that, the whole thing is IP68 certified - meaning it’s dust- and water-resistant.

Screen

With a crisp 5.8in Quad HD (1440x2960) display, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is great for watching videos, movies and TV shows on your device. It’s high resolution, and Super AMOLED tech means it’s got some of the brightest and clearest colours you can get on a phone - and it’s HDR-enabled too. You’ll also notice the ‘always on’ display - even when the screen is asleep, it’ll show you the time, battery level, and key notifications.

Battery

A high-powered screen tends to suck up a lot of battery power, but luckily that’s no problem for the Galaxy S8 - it’s kitted out with a big 3,000mAh battery. It’s also got fast charging, and with the right tech you can charge it wirelessly too.

Camera

The Samsung Galaxy S8 boasts a 12 megapixel (MP) camera, and comes with enhanced optics and performance - after all, it's not all about the megapixels. The image stabilisation is fantastic at reducing blur, and budding photographers will love the picture quality, which is clear even in low-light conditions, thanks to the phone's f/1.7 aperture. The selfie camera on the front, meanwhile, has been boosted to 8MP.

Samsung Galaxy S8+

Prefer a phablet mobile - one that’s sized somewhere between a phone and a tablet? The larger version of the Galaxy S8, the S8+, is one of the best around. It’s exactly the same as the standard S8, only with a ginormous 6.2-inch screen and a more powerful battery. That’s more than enough space to read documents, watch Netflix, and flick through those 12MP photos.

Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung’s previous flagship was the Galaxy S7 - an impressive phone that’s still worth owning. The screen is flat and a little smaller at 5.1 inches, and it’s got the classic lozenge-shaped home button. Specs include a QHD display, an Exynos 8890 chipset, 12MP camera, and either 32GB or 64GB of storage.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

If you want a little more pizazz from your Galaxy S7, you can grab the Edge version - it’s got all the same specs, but with that cool screen that curves down at the sides.

Not only does it look funkier - and offer a little extra functionality, thanks to the slightly bigger screen - it’s also available with 128GB storage.

Samsung Galaxy S6

Before the S7, Samsung’s big boy was the Galaxy S6. Like the S7, it’s got a large Quad HD display, complete with hardy Gorilla Glass. It’s missing an SD card slot, but thankfully you can get it with 128GB internal memory.

As for other features, you get a 16MP camera, fingerprint sensor, heartbeat monitor, and Android Nougat.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

As per usual, the Galaxy S6 came out alongside a curvy-screened S6 Edge - for that funky look and extra screen real estate. It’s the only one of the series available in a shiny ‘green emerald’ colour too, and came with a slightly larger battery to power it all.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

Want an S6 with an even bigger screen? The Galaxy S6 Edge+ has just that. On the Plus model, the display’s been stretched to a whopping 5.7 inches, complete with curved sides.

FAQs

  1. If I switch, can I keep my mobile number?
    Yes you can. All you have to do is ask your old network for your Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) before your contract is up. Then give the PAC - likely a nine-digit number - to your new provider and you’ll usually be able to use your old number within a working day.
  2. How do I switch mobile contracts?

    First, pick a new mobile contract by comparing different packages on our site, and click through to sign up to one that looks good.

    Then, simply contact your current provider to cancel, and switch to the new contract. Providers should walk you through the process when you sign up.

  3. Can I use my mobile phone abroad?

    It is possible to use your phone abroad, but before you can do so you may have to activate roaming with your network operator. Different countries incur different charges, but if you’re travelling within the EU, your operator should send you a message about roaming prices upon your arrival. And remember, unlike at home, you may be charged for receiving calls as well as making them.

    See our guide to using your phone abroad for more info.
