Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Vodafone | £113.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £36pm
The Samsung Galaxy S8 doesn't come cheap, but this tariff is the least expensive way you can get hold of it - even if it is £30 more expensive than it was last month. Together with the 1GB data allowance, you get unlimited calls and texts. And £36 a month isn't bad for a phone this good. Total cost over 24 months is £977.99

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on EE

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | EE | FREE upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £42.99pm
EE isn't 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. 10GB is the cheapest price point for S8+s on EE at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £1031.76.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | EE | £23.99 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £47.99pm
As long as 15GB is enough data for you per month, then this deal conly costs a little more than the one above. You'll still 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, too. Total cost over 24 months is £1146.75.

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on O2

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | O2 | £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. Total cost over 24 months is £1068.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | O2 | £100 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £44pm
If the 3GB deal above isn't quite enough, then for less than £100 over the contract you could get a bountiful 15GB instead. And we've just seen the price fall another £25. That's a massive amount of data for this massive phone for the price of O2's 5GB tariff from last month. Massive! Total cost over 24 months is £1131.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | O2 | £149.99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £48pm
This time last month, you couldn't get a sniff of 30GB on O2 for less than £1400 over the two years. This deal is way cheaper than that, with £48 payments every month after the unfortunately just-inflated £150 splash at the outset. Total cost over 24 months is £1301.99.

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on Vodafone

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Vodafone | £113.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £36pm
We're well aware that the Samsung Galaxy S8 doesn't come cheap, but this Vodafone tariff is the least expensive way you can get hold of it - even if it is £30 more expensive than last month. Together with the 1GB data allowance, you get unlimited calls and texts. And, in fairness, £36 a month isn't bad for a phone this good. Total cost over 24 months is £977.99

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Vodafone | £65.99 upfront | 16GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £42pm
Make the leap to a mighty 16GB of data with Mobile Phones Direct and you'll be rewarded with this stellar offer.. This is one of our favourite deals on the massive new Galaxy S8 Plus, thanks to its lowish upfront spend and reasonable monthly payments. Total cost over 24 months is £1073.99

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals on Three

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Three | £40.99 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 £1078.99.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Three | £44.99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £45pm
Three is offering the cheapest 30GB deal of any network so far and this deal is around £250 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 - especially now another £25 has been knocked off the handset price. Total cost over 24 months is £1124.99.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus | Three | £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

Time to go SIM only?

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 £4 a month too.
