The best Galaxy S8 plans

Best value AND budget option – Samsung Galaxy S8 | 20GB data | 150 international minutes | $59 pm

Optus is currently holding the crown for the best overall deal on a Samsung Galaxy S8, and it's also the cheapest deal you can possibly get. For only $59 a month you'll score 20GB of data, 150 international minutes, and streaming music via Spotify, Google Play Music or iHeartRadio won't count towards your cap. You'll also get subscriptions to National Geographic and Optus Sport. Total cost over 24 months is $1,416

Best big data option – Samsung Galaxy S8 | 100GB data | Unlimited international and roaming calls | $120 pm

If you're looking for a plan with enormous data, Telstra technically has one with an extra 20GB... but you'll be paying $59 a month more for the privilege. We recommend sticking to 100GB of data and saving the dollars, as well as getting unlimited international and roaming calls, as well as 1.5GB of roaming data each month, not to mention all the included Optus extras that help stretch the data cap anyway. Total cost over 24 months is $2,880

Best Samsung Galaxy S8 plan for each carrier

Best Telstra plan –  Samsung Galaxy S8 | 5GB data | Foxtel Now Starter Pack 12-month subscription | $84 pm

Frankly, Telstra aren't being very competitive with its Samsung flagship plans right now as they're choosing to focus on the new range of Apple handsets, but if you really need to go with Telstra, this one holds the best value. The $79 plan is currently somehow cheaper than the $59 plan, and will net you 5GB of data alongside a 12 month subscription to a Foxtel Now Starter Pack. Total cost over 24 months is $2,016

Best Optus plan – Samsung Galaxy S8 | 20GB data | 150 international minutes | $59 pm

Optus is taking the cake for the best overall deal on a Samsung Galaxy S8, and it's also the cheapest deal you can possible get. For only $59 a month you'll score 20GB of data, 150 international minutes, and streaming music via Spotify, Google Play Music or iHeartRadio won't count towards your cap.

Best Virgin Mobile plan – Samsung Galaxy S8 | 16GB data | $300 international calls and texts | $60 pm

While Optus has a one-up on Virgin Mobile right now, this deal is a close second. You'll get 16GB of data with data rollover and certain streaming services not counting towards your cap, and $300 worth of international calls and texts each month. Total cost over 24 months is $1,440

Best Vodafone plan – Samsung Galaxy S8 | 150GB data | $110.12 pm

If you want to go with Vodafone right now, you may as well make use of its "triple data" offering on the 50GB plan, bringing it up to a ginormous 150GB. However, the reason we didn't recommend this as our overall big data plan is that it comes with no included extras whatsoever, which you'd reasonably expect when paying this much per month. Total cost over 24 months is $2,642.88
