The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals for Black Friday 2017

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 certainly has a point to prove and it's now available buy. It's never going to be your go-to option if you're on a tight budget, but it's got the screen size and specification smarts to be a competitor to the much lauded iPhone X. And the price has just fallen - drastically.

Plus, we've already bagged a brilliant exclusive deal from Carphone Warehouse. If you buy any Galaxy Note 8 deal, it will throw in a £40 gift card that can be used at any of Amazon, Currys/PC World, M&S and more. Click to see more details of how to claim this Carphone Warehouse Black Friday offer

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 fully functioning Note-branded phablet from the South Korean tech behemoth. But we can now move forward from that chapter in tech history - the Note 8 is well and truly here!

The best Galaxy Note 8 deals in the UK

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £150 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 12GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £37pm
Well this came from nowhere, like a bolt from the blue - the blue network that is, this is a killer O2 deal. The price is the lowest we've seen anyway, but then consider that you get a massive 12GB of data to play with as well. An utterly exceptional deal from Mobiles.co.uk. Total cost over 24 months is £1038

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £128 upfront | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £42.99pm
Well nothing comes even close to that O2 deal at the moment. But this is the one to go for if you're tempted by the UK's fastest 4G network. 5GB is a very healthy amount of data to keep you streaming and surfing away from the home and office Wi-Fi and it's a decent balance between upfront cost. Good, just not as good as the O2 tariff.. Total cost over 24 months is £1159.76

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £41.99 upfront | 32GB 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 32GB - now that's a lot of Netflix watching and (admit it) Facebook scrolling to that glorious looking 6.3-inch screen without too much fear of exceeding your limits. It was free before, but now you have to pay a little upfront.. Total cost over 24 months is £1337.99

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £79 upfront | Unlimited data, minutes and texts | £73pm
Well helloooooooooo big spender! We know you're not going to be deterred by our warnings of the price and suggestions of going for 30GB instead - you want all-you-can-eat, and you want it now. Three is the only network that can offer uncapped data, so you have no option but to sign up with this deal. Total cost over 24 months is £1831

Should I get the Galaxy Note 8 SIM free?

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 (usually around £4 a month for 500MB data), that would still cost almost £1,000 over the two years. You're probably better cranking up the upfront cost in our price comparison chart above, imposing a low maximum for monthlies and finding a cheaper deal in the long run.

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.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £164 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £42.99pm
15GB is a delightful sum of data to play with every month and this is a decent price over the two years if you're willing to sacrifice more than £150 upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £1195.76

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £159.99 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £44pm + £40 Amazon voucher
That 12GB deal above is truly outstanding, and makes anything else on O2 for the Note 8 pretty lousy. But in isolation, this isn't too bad for a massive 20GB of data, especially now you get a £40 Amazon voucher, too. It's certainly much better than we were seeing a month or so ago. Total cost over 24 months is £1215.99

Best Galaxy Note 8 deals on Vodafone this month

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £175 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £36pm
Well this is certainly a whole lot better than the best Note 8 deal from Vodafone that came before - we really struggled to maintain a brave face over that one. But this is teriffic and pretty much the cheapest way you can own this phone on contact at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £1039

Best Galaxy Note 8 deals on Three this month

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £99 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £47pm
So far, Three hasn't been able to compete very well on the Galaxy Note 8 - we'd imagine that they will come cheaper in time. For now, this is the least expensive option you can go for if you're wedded to the numerical network. Total cost over 24 months is £1227
