The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals in October 2017

With its huge screen, superb camera and sleek dimensions, we've branded the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus as the best big Android phone on the market. Quite the acclaim, considering some of the competition. And a great, more affordable alternative to the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8.

In fact, the Note 8-shaped silhouette on the horizon is probably what's causing Samsung Galaxy S8+ prices to slip slowly downwards over the last couple of months. We have the full rundown right here, with the best deals from the major networks - EE, Vodafone and Three - and O2 launching a sub-£30pm tariff that's really got our pulses racing.

The prices on the Galaxy S8+ are lower than ever, but if they still look a little rich for your blood, then you can buy the smaller Galaxy S8 for less or head over to our best mobile phone deals page for something completely different. But if it's the Plus-sized screen that you need, then we'll find you the best deal here.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £125 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 3GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £29pm
We saw this coming (honest!): it was inevitable that the appearance of the Galaxy Note 8 would start an avalanche of price falls on the S8 Plus. And this is a BIG discount from Mobiles.co.uk on O2. In fact, it's the first time we've seen the total two year price fall below the £850-mark. Incredible. Total cost over 24 months is £821

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £139 upfront | 5GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £32.99pm
If 3GB isn't enough and/or you want to use your Galaxy S8 Plus on the UK's fastest 4G network, then the price leaps by around £100 over the two years. That's not to say it's a bad deal. We actually think it represents pretty brilliant value on this brilliant Android phone. Total cost over 24 months is £930.76

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £19.99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £45pm
Three is offering the cheapest 30GB deal of any network so far and this deal is almost £400 cheaper than the most affordable unlimited data deal over the 24 month contract. 30GB is a serious amount of data a month and the savings speak for themselves. So don't go for unlimited for the sake of it... Total cost over 24 months is £1099.99

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £42.99pm
Big data from EE on Samsung's big flagship phone just got a little more affordable. This tariff now includes a FREE handset, and the monthly payments are a very reasonable £42.99 relative to what else is around. You'll also be able to take advantage of EE's super fast 4G signal to use BT Sport for three months and Apple Music for six months for free. Total cost over 24 months is £1031.76

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £125 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £39pm
Need to up the data in order to stream Spotify and Netflix on your commute and keep on track with Google Maps in the car? Then you're looking at an extra £10 per month if you want to stick with O2. That takes the data up to 15GB per month. Total cost over 24 months is £1061

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deal on Vodafone

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £129.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £34pm
Ouch! Vodafone isn't exactly following the downward trend on the Galaxy S8 Plus. This tariff has just went up by £50 in price, making it far less competitive than the other networks. You only get 1GB data allowance, with unlimited calls and texts. Total cost over 24 months is £945.99

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £200 upfront | 16GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £38pm
As above, so below. This time you have to find an extra £100 upfront to grab Vodafone's best 16GB tariff. The summary here is that you should abandon Vodafone if you want to buy a Galaxy S8+. Total cost over 24 months is £1112

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on Three

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | FREE upfront | 8GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £43pm
If you don't need huge amounts of data, this 8GB deal is competitive. We'd be tempted to go for the larger 16GB Vodafone deal mentioned earlier - it's cheaper than this. Three becomes a lot more attractive if you start cranking up the data; just look below to see what we mean. Total cost over 24 months is £1038

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £79 upfront | 100GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £58pm
There's no getting around it. The cost for true unlimited data access per month is incredibly high. But Three has now launched 100GB tariffs - surely enough data for all but the most data hungry users. Just bear in mind that going for 30GB instead is considerably cheaper (see above). Total cost over 24 months is £1471

Should you go SIM only on the Galaxy S8 Plus?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus costs £779 SIM-free and you can find the latest deals in the comparison chart above by clicking the 'Handsets' tab at the top. If you can afford to buy the phone upfront and pair it with your own SIM only deal it can be a lot cheaper than buying it on a two-year contract. Check out the best  SIM only offers below. You can choose 30-day or 12-month SIM only deals. So there's lots of room for flexibility - ideal if you're not 100% sure how much data you're going to need. Deals start from just £3.99 a month too.
