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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
