Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £99.99 upfront | 2GB data | 1000 minutes | Unlimited texts | £35.49pm
The Samsung Galaxy S8 doesn't come cheap, but this tariff is the least expensive way you can get hold of it - it's getting closer and closer to the £950 mark for the two years. And now you get 2GB of data instead of 1GB. £36 a month is actually rather good for a phone this good...and big. Total cost over 24 months is £951.75

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £59.99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £44pm
O2 doesn't have the cheapest prices on the Galaxy S8 Plus, but you may still be tempted if you've had your head turned by the network's popular Priority rewards. You get 5GB less than last month, but 10GB is still a lot of data for this massive phone. Total cost over 24 months is £1115.99.

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 £4000 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 | 10GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £42.99pm
EE isn't always known for being cheap but it does offer some seriously fast 4G speeds. This new and improved (FREE HANDSET!) deal from Affordable Mobiles comes with six months of Apple Music, three months of BT Sport for free and use in the EU. Total cost over 24 months is £1031.76

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | FREE upfront | 16GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £47.99pm
This is a new deal from Mobiles.co.uk, and it's a good'n. 16GB of data should be plenty for most people, and you get that huge handset for nothing at all upfront. That does make the monthlies a little costly, but you'll 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 £1151.76

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on O2

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £180 upfront | 3GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £37pm
 3GB of data is plenty for the average user thanks to the abundance of free Wi-Fi. The £180 upfront cost is offset by the low £37 monthly fee. Plus, you can sign up to O2 Priority rewards for lots of monthly freebies and discounts. Look downwards before you buy, however... Total cost over 24 months is £1068.

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deal on Vodafone

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Vodafone | £63.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £36pm
This Vodafone tariff has just dropped £30 and so has reinstalled itself as the cheapest price on the Galaxy S8 Plus. Together with the 1GB data allowance, you get unlimited calls and texts. And £36 a month actually isn't bad for a phone this good. Total cost over 24 months is £927.99

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on Three

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £19.99 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 £1057.99.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | £99 upfront | 600 mins | Unlimited calls and texts | £58.15pm
There's no getting around it. The cost for true unlimited data access per month is incredibly high. Three still won't give you the handset for free upfront either! We've chosen this deal with a 600 minute call restriction as it's over £100 cheaper than unlimited and you can always use apps like WhatsApp to make calls with all that data instead. But bear in mind that going for 30GB instead is considerably cheaper (see above). Total cost over 24 months is £1494.60
