The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals in September 2017

What's that coming over the hill? It's a big, shiny, brute of a device. Part mobile phone, part tablet, all business. It's the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it has a point to prove and it's now available buy from all major networks and resellers!

It might seem a tad unfair, but we can't not mention the Galaxy Note 7 debacle when talking about its successor. Samsung's 2016 aborted project due to overheating and fire risks means that we've had to wait two years for a (fingers crossed) fully functioning Note-branded phablet from the South Korean tech behemoth.

But we can now move forward from that chapter in tech history. And if you're among the number baying for a new Note 8 deal, you've come to the right place. Deals are now available from all the major retailers and networks, and they're already beginning to fall - check out our price comparison tool below for the best prices and to see our exclusive deal. Plus, we've picked out five of our favourite deals (it might worth waiting for a Black Friday deal!) and tell you more about this mammoth mobile.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | Vodafone | £30.99 upfront | 40GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £54pm
If you need upwards of 30GB data each month, then Vodafone is your best bet at the moment. This deal gets you a MASSIVE 40GB - now that's a lot of Netflix watching and (admit it) Facebook scrolling away to that glorious looking 6.3-inch screen without too much fear of exceeding your limits. This is a decent deal for the data hungry. Total cost over 24 months is £1326.99

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | EE | £315 upfront with 10OFF code) | 2GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £22.99pm
Something of a wildcard to finish, just because it's a monthly price that you're much more likely to see on a retro Galaxy S6. £315 if you can stretch to it upfront will give you bragging rights over your mates for the next two years. And this deal manages to somehow bring the lot down to less than £900 for the two year term. Total cost over 24 months is £866.76

Galaxy Note 8 deals: how much does the phone cost?

Aha - just want to get straight down to business do you? We like the cut of your jib. Well to buy the phone outright, you're looking at an extravagant £869 RRP. That's a tasty £120 uplift from the Galaxy Note 7 last year.

So if you were hoping that the failure of the Note 7 may help to keep prices down, we're afraid you're very much mistaken. As we also saw from the launch of the Galaxy S8 earlier this year, the pricing trend is heading in one direction only and that's up. Manufacturers like Samsung and Apple know that legions of tech fans will pay whatever it takes to get hold of the latest devices.

When can I get the Galaxy Note 8?

You can now buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the UK! It was available to pre-order on August 23rd but it went on sale the same day as the iPhone 8 - September 15.

Should I get the Galaxy Note 8 SIM free?

Aha, you must be somebody after our own heart. Always looking to see how you can trim a few pounds off your new favourite gadget. As you probably know, you can now pick up cheap SIM only deals for as little as £4 a month, which could make it worth buying a SIM and handset separately.

Well the Galaxy Note 8's RRP is £869. Even if you get the cheapest SIM card around from iD (£3.99 a month for 500MB data), that would still take you above our wilcard contract option above over two years. So you're probably better off just picking out a contract from our price comparison chart.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review and key specifications

Massive in dimensions and quality

Screen size: 6.3-inches | Resolution: 2960 x 1440 Quad HD+ | Rear camera: 12MP dual lens | Weight: 195g | OS: Android 7.1.1 | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 64/128/256GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 3300mAh

Incredible Infinity display
Best Samsung camera on a phone
So powerful
Battery life could be better

Wondering what all the fuss is about? Well the fervour for the Note 8 is probably doubled due to the fact that the Note 7 was pulled from shelves soon after release. But it doesn't take more than one look at the Note 8 to see that it justifies the hype.

The huge 6.3-inch ‘Infinity Display,’ is gorgeous to look at, the 6GB RAM innards go like a train and there are two best-in-class rear cameras. It's expensive, but we think the Note 8 is worth it.
