Samsung's Galaxy S5 isn't the newest smartphone on the market, there has been the Galaxy S6 as well as two Note phablets since this flagship. We're even expecting to see the brand new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge launch next month. But don't let that put you off considering it, this is still one of the best phones you can get at a cheap price. This phone was a superstar when it launched, and it remains a brilliant little phone now. It has a few little annoyances that were addressed with the Galaxy S6 but in the long run those aren't particularly worth the extra money it'll cost you. It's an older phone so there are some great deals to make the most of. You can get extra data, accessories thrown in or even just really low price contracts that you wouldn't see for the latest version.

There are some big advantages of having the S5 including a removable battery, meaning you can keep a spare one around for when your main one runs out. It's only available in a 16GB model now so there's also microSD support to add loads of extra space to the phone for music, videos and photos.

Speaking of photos the camera on this phone is amazing too. For all but the most demanding you'll be thrilled with the results, and while the S6 is even better it's not so pronounced as to make you sick with jealousy when a friend pulls out the newer model.

The UK's best Galaxy S5 deals:

Free 16GB phone | unlimited minutes and texts | 2GB data | £26pm
Last month's amazing Vodafone deal for 6GB of data with a free Galaxy S5 is sadly now over, but the red network now has a new deal. It's for less internet this month but if you're looking for a free phone and can handle only 2GB of data this is one of the best choices you can make for the Galaxy S5. Total cost over 24 months is £624.

Free 16GB phone | 1000 minutes | unlimited texts | 2GB data | £24.99pm
We had this deal in here last month but this month it's even cheaper than before by losing £2 off the monthly price. This deal from EE gives you a free 16GB phone, 1000 minutes and texts as well as 2GB of mobile data. It makes sense to opt for this if you're a fan of the UK's biggest network already and want bonuses such as free Wi-Fi calling on your Galaxy S5. Total cost over 24 months is £599.76.

Free 16GB phone | unlimited minutes and texts | 5GB data | £34pm
This deal from O2 offers a good amount of internet without breaking the bank at the same time. If you're a really heavy user it probably won't be enough data, but the average user will find this enough. Plus you get unlimited minutes and texts as well as a 16GB free phone as well. Total cost over 24 months is £816.

Best Galaxy S5 deals on EE:

iPhone 6 deals on EEFree 16GB phone | 1000 minutes | unlimited texts | 2GB data | £24.99pm
This is one of the best deals for the Galaxy S5 even though EE has limited the minutes to 1000 for the deal this month. You get the same free 16GB phone as all these deals with unlimited texts as well as 2GB of mobile data. It makes sense to opt for this if you're a fan of the UK's biggest network already and want bonuses such as free Wi-Fi calling on your Galaxy S5. Total cost over 24 months is £599.76.

Free 16GB phone | unlimited minutes and texts | 5GB data | £32.49pm
There aren't any unlimited internet deals for EE and all the 10GB+ deals are really expensive this month. So we're recommending this 5GB of data deal as our largest option. If you're looking for a deal with lots more internet though, we'd recommend the other networks before EE. Total cost over 24 months is £779.76.

£50 16GB phone | 500 minutes and texts | 1GB data | £19.99pm
EE is pretty tight for deals this month so we've gone for the cheapest we could find. This means you have to spend £50 right away, but month on month it'll work out cheaper. Be warned though most people can't survive with only 1GB of data so you need to be a pretty low user to go for this deal. Total cost over 24 months is £529.76.

Best Galaxy S5 deals on O2:

iphone 6 deals on o2Free 16GB phone | unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £27.50pm
For some reason O2 isn't supplying 2GB internet contracts for the Galaxy S5 so we've gone for a little bit less internet here. Be warned, 1GB isn't enough for most people. If it is though you'll get unlimited minutes and texts as well as a free phone. If you don't use internet at all it may be worth your while heading over to O2 directly and looking for the 300MB and less deals the network offers. With this exact deal though you'll get a free Fitbug Orb tracker in black as well. Total cost over 24 months is £660.

Free 16GB phone | unlimited minutes and texts | 3GB data | £31pm
It might not be the cheapest deal out there but this one from the bubbly network offers a solid amount of data and is a good choice if you want to stick with O2. For some reason 2GB contracts on the service are few and far between, plus this way you get a free £30 Love2Shop voucher to use as well. Total cost over 24 months is £744.

Spend a little bit more money and you'll get a little more internet as well. It's not the cheapest deal out there but it's much more affordable than the 10GB+ contracts on O2. You'll also get a free Misfit Shine as well as unlimited minutes, texts and the Galaxy S5 phone. Total cost over 24 months is £816.

Best Galaxy S5 deals on Vodafone:

vodafoneFree 16GB phone | 1000 minutes calls | unlimited texts | 2GB data | £26pm Here you get unlimited texts, 1000 minutes and 2GB of data. That's not the best for everyone and if you're a heavy data user you may want to look elsewhere, but for £25 a month it's hard to turn down. Last month you got £120 cashback with this deal though so it may be worth waiting until next month to see if it improves. Total cost over 24 months is £624.

If you want a ton of internet and want to stick with Vodafone, this is your best deal. It's not unlimited but 10GB would suit most customers and it doesn't cost the absolute earth that some larger internet deals do. This isn't such as a good deal as it was last month but it's still one of the best choices if you need lots of internet on the Galaxy S5. Total cost over 25 months is £960.

This deal is back. We loved it a few months ago, but then it disappeared and now Vodafone has seen fit to bring it back. The cashback element is nowhere to be seen though which is a bit gutting. It's still a good deal though and offers a huge 6GB of internet as well as unlimited minutes and texts for £31 a month. Total cost over 24 months is £744.

Best Galaxy S5 deals on Three:

iphone 6 deals on Three£19 16GB phone | 600 mins | unlimited texts | 8GB of data | £38pm
Three is having another weird month and is not offering any phones for free. Luckily all the upfront costs are reasonably low and this is our favourite deal from the network. Three offers a lot of benefits such as free 4G and the Feel At Home package. You are restricted to a limited amount of minutes though so be sure to work out how many calls you make a month before you go for this. Total cost over 24 months is £931.

Three is always good when it comes to internet and it's likely worth your while getting a contract with unlimited minutes. This one has them as well as all the normal Three benefits like free 4G coverage and the Feel At Home service. Total cost over 24 months is £931.

There aren't many unlimited deals out there for the Galaxy S5 so we've put in this deal from Three for those who want lots of internet. It's not the cheapest option, but having lots of internet is never going to be easy on the wallet. Plus it's a free phone as well, which is always helpful. We wouldn't recommend this one over the other deals at Three, but if you're looking for just a small amount of data to go with your unlimited texts this might well be the deal for you. Total cost over 24 months is £1147.
