The best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals in October 2016

Vodafone is the network to go for in this Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-order phase

samsung galaxy note 7 deals

Update: Due to more than a few Note 7 handsets catching fire and exploding, Samsung has officially discontinued this handset. Even if you spot this phone on sale somewhere, for your own safety we advise you not to buy it! If you're looking for an alternative, Samsung's flagship S7 phones are both fantastic. The S7 Edge in particular is only 2mm smaller than the Note 7 so should make a fitting alternative - you'll also save yourself some money!

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals:

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals currently available are not hte same as the ones that were revealed after launch. Many resellers such as Carphone Warehouse have marked the Note 7 as 'out of stoke' until it knows when it might be able to get stock in (see above about the recall). As such, many of the deals we pulled out as being 'the best' are no longer available. We've left them on the page so that you can see what the market looked like before the recall was announced. Some of the networks themselves are still accepting pre-orders so use the comparison table above if you really want to pre-order.

ID sim only deals

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £99.99 upfront | 600 mins | 5000 texts | 1GB data | £33.50 per month
This is the UK's absolute cheapest Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deal (min 1GB data). It comes from the iD Mobile network. iD is owned by Carphone Warehouse and piggybacks on the Three 3G/4G network which means you get some of the perks of being on Three like Feel at Home (Takeaway) where you can use your phone around the world at no extra cost. Total cost of this over 24 months is £903.99

ID sim only deals

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £99.99 upfront | 600 mins | 5000 texts | 2GB data | £35.50 per month (Free Gear VR)
For just £2 more per month than the above deal you can get 2GB instead of 1GB. It's otherwise exactly the same plan, so 600 mintes and 5000 texts and a £99.99 upfront fee. This is cheaper than most 1GB deals at the moment so it's probably the best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deal of the pre-order phase if you don't need more data. Total cost over 24 months is £951.99

samsung galaxy s7 edge deals

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | Free upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 1GB | £39pm (after cashback)
This is the cheapest deal for the Note 7 currently available on any network, and comes with 1GB data for £39 a month and free Note 7. The total fee over the 24 months is lower than any other Note 7 deal with at least 1GB data so this is as good as it gets at the moment. The actual monthly fe is $42 but £71 cashback when you sign up effectively reduces it to £39 which is good value relative to the other deals currently available. Total cost over 24 months is £936

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data | £50.99 per month
If you need more than 1GB data, it makes sense to jump up to 5GB as the 2GB we found didn't save you much money. With this deal you pay £99.99 upfront and then £50.99 monthly for 5GB data and unlimited everything else. This is expensive, obviously, but relative to everything else out there on EE at the moment it's good value. Total cost over 24 months is £1323.75

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £89.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 20GB data | £55.99 per month

Best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals on O2

O2 is the network with extras, including the popular O2 Priority service

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £199.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data - £31pm
This is the cheapest Note 7 deal if you want to be on O2 and if 1GB is enough data for your usage tendencies. £199.99 upfront is expensive, yes, and £31 per month for 1GB data is also expensive. In reality, these prices will come down in the next month or two so there is a premium attached to these early Note 7 deals. But if you want this phone right now, this is a good deal to go for. Total cost over 24 months is £943.99

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £139.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data - £36.50pm
If you need more data than the 1GB in the deal above, this looks like a good alternative. You pay £139.99 upfront which is less than most of the other deals out there, and £36.50 monthly for 3GB data. It's still expensive but that's where we're at with this phone at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £1015.99

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £129.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data - £40pm
If you want 5GB data and can stomach a £129.99 upfront fee then this deal actually works out not too bad against the other Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals currently available. £40 per month is expensive but not ludicrous for 5GB data and £129.99 for a brand new phone is not unusual either. Total cost over 24 months is £1089.99

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | Free upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data - £50pm (FREE Gear VR)
This is the same O2 5GB tariff as above but you're getting the Note 7 for free and paying £50 monthly instead. This deal works out £20 expensive over the two years but that could well be worth paying if you don't have the cash to pay upfront for the phone. Total cost over 24 months is £1200

Best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals on Vodafone

This is a fantastic deal for the Note 7 and cements Vodafone as the network to go for at the moment if you want this phone.

Best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals on Three

Three is one of few providers that offers unlimited data, and Feel at Home is amazing for regular travellers.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £38pm
Three's prices are about standard at the moment, provided you go via one of the resellers like Buymobiles.net or Mobile Phones Direct. If you want to be on Three and you want the cheapest deal available with 1GB data this is it. It's not spectacular but it's the best there is. Total cost over 24 months is £1011.99

You can quadruple the amount of data you get on Three by paying a shade more upfront and £4 more per month. With this deal you get 4GB data for £42 per month and £84.99 upfront which again is about standard. Not as good as those Vodafone deals but about the same as the other networks. Total cost over 24 months is £1092.99

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £194.99 upfront | Unlimited calls, texts and data | £50pm
If you want the very best phone out there and you want to let it loose on the world, you might want to go for an unlimited data plan. If that's the case, this is probably the deal for you as it offers unlimited everything for £50 per month and 194.99 upfront. This isn't a bad deal actually when you compare it to the prices on O2 and particularly EE but those Vodafone deals do make it look a bit much. Still, it's the best unlimited data option. Total cost over 24 months is £1394.99
