The best Galaxy S8 Plus plans (September 2017)
Below we've rounded up three of the best deals over all the networks, depnding on if you're a big saver, big on data, or just into big value. Further down the page we've gone through the major three providers (Telstra, Optus, and Vodafone) and picked out the best three plans on their networks, so you don't have to sniff around.
Best overall value — Galaxy S8 Plus | 16GB data | Unlimited talk and texts | Music streaming that doesn't count towards data | $90 pm
A huge amount of data and unlimited calls and text is incentive enough for this plan, but considering all of your streaming via popular services like Spotify and Google Play Music won't count toward your data, this is a bit of a no-brainer. For a limited time, Virgin is also offering a one-off 15GB data pack that rolls over to the next month if you don't use it all at once. So grab the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus along with unlimited international calls and texts to select countries (US, UK, NZ, China, India and more) as well as $300 worth of international calls and text to use around the rest of the globe. Total cost over 24 months is $2,160
Best budget option — Galaxy S8 Plus | Unlimited talk and texts | 2GB data | Music streaming that doesn't count towards data | $75 pm
This is a very competitive budget-level plan from Virgin. 2GB of data is decent for the lowest pricing tier, and with music streaming from apps like Spotify and Google Play Music not counting towards your cap, as well as a one-off bonus 10GB package (that rolls over to the next month if you don't use it), data won't be such an issue. Total cost over 24 months is $1,800
Biggest data option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 100GB Data | Unlimited local, international, and roaming talk and text | $160 pm
Optus is absolutely dominating the field of oversized data plans at the moment, with the same 100GB data cap as Telstra's premium plan, but at $39 less a month. Not only that but all calls and texts are unlimited, even international and roaming calls, and you'll also get a sweet 1.5GB of included roaming data per month. Total cost over 24 months is $3,840
Now let's break down the best Galaxy S8 Plus plans and deals for September 2017 by network...
Best Galaxy S8 Plus plans on Telstra (September 2017)
Best value overall — Galaxy S8 Plus | 20GB data | Unlimited local and international talk and texts | $119 pm
When you go Telstra don't expect the lowest prices, but this telco is known for its coverage, customer support, and included extras. With the company's recent plan overhauls came the addition of some free 12-month subscriptions to Foxtel Now, and with this plan you'll get one of the starter packs. Alongside that, you'll have 20GB of data and unlimited local and international calls and texts. Total cost over 24 months is $2,856
Best budget option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 2GB data | Unlimited talk and texts | $101pm
There are cheaper plans out there but if you want to go with Telstra, this is the lowest possible amount you'll be paying. 2Gb of data is pretty decent for the budget price tier and you'll get a 6-month subscription to Apple Music, and any music streamed through the service won't count towards your data cap. Total cost over 24 months is $2,328
Biggest data option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 100GB data | Unlimited national and international talk and text | $199 per month
To compete with Optus, Telstra has introduced its own 100GB big data plan, although it weighs a little heavier on the wallet. Along with the 100GB, you'll get a free 12-month subscription to three Foxtel Now starter packs, unlimited calls and texts locally and internationally, and 4GB a month of roaming data. If you travel plenty and never want to have to worry about going over a limite, this is the plan for you. Total cost over 24 months is $4,776
Best Galaxy S8 Plus plans on Optus (September 2017)
Best overall value — Galaxy S8 Plus | 10GB data | Unlimited talk and text | Optus Sport | $95 pm
An extra 3GB brings this deal up to 10GB of data with unlimited calls and texts, on top of fee Optus Sport and a whole lot of streaming services not counting toward your monthly data cap. This package is most well-balanced out of the offerings from Optus and comes in at a very respectable $95 a month, which is awesome considering the competition. Total cost over 24 months is $2,520
Best budget option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 1GB data | Unlimited talk and text | $82 pm
A minimum of $82 a month will get you a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus on Optus, but for an entry level plan it actually has some pretty decent features. Unlimtied talk and text, 1GB of data and a whole lot of streaming services not counting toward your data cap means your 1GB will last a lot longer on this plan. Total cost over 24 months is $1,968
Biggest data option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 100GB Data | Unlimited local, international, and roaming talk and text | $160 pm If you use mammoth amounts of data, Optus is absolutely dominating this field at the moment. A ridiculous 100GB of included data almost triples the nearest competition for data-heavy plans. Not only that but you won't have to worry about any calls or texst you make as they are all unlimited, even international and roaming calls, and you'll also get a nifty 1.5GB of included roaming data a month. Total cost over 24 months is $3,840
Best Galaxy S8 Plus plans on Vodafone (September 2017)
Overall best value — Galaxy S8 Plus | 16GB data | Unlimited talk and text | $106.20 pm
You can grab a 16GB Red plan with unlimited calls and texts for $106.20 a month over at Vodafone, which is excellent value for the bare basics, and although you don't necessarily get any other included extras, the ability to leave the plan at any given time or pay off the rest of the value of the handset is a big boon. Total cost over 24 months is $2,548.80
Best budget option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 2GB Data | Unlimited talk and text | $86.20 pm
3GB is an impressive data pack for the lowest tier plan, and it comes with unlimited calls and texts so if that's all you're after this is a great choice. The freedom to leave the plan on any given month and pay off the rest of the handset is also an excellent perk for those that like to weigh up there options again in a few months time.. Total cost over 24 months is $2,068.80
Biggest data option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 50GB data | Unlimited talk and text | $156.20pm
If you want some big data to go with the big phone, Vodafone's $100 Red plan will net you 50GB and unlimited calls and texts. In lieu of any other included extras, you'll be able to pay off the rest of the phone at any time in the contract and change plans on a whim rather than being locked in. Total cost over 24 months is $3,748.80
