The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is out now, and there are three new devices to choose from. The standard model is the Galaxy S24, while you can get similar specs paired with a larger screen in the S24 Plus. If you want to go all-out with the most premium device, then the S24 Ultra will be for you. We’ll be focusing on the first two phones on this page, but we have a guide to the best Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra plans if that’s the handset you’re after.

We’ve analysed every option from Telstra, Optus and Vodafone, and ultimately we think Vodafone has the best Samsung Galaxy S24 plans. While the recent Vodafone price hike in January 2024 means the telco’s plans aren’t as good-value as they used to be, you still get a decent chunk of data at a reasonable price. The only thing is, Vodafone’s mobile plans now generally cost the same as Optus’.

You’ll find more details on our plan recommendations below, or you can read our full Samsung Galaxy S24 review if you want to learn more about the phone itself. You’ve got the option to buy the new device outright too, so consider some of the best SIM-only plans if that’s the route you want to take.

It’s a close race, but we’d argue that Vodafone has the best Samsung Galaxy S24 plan at the moment. You can get the new device for AU$107.29 a month at Vodafone, if you opt for the 256GB model and pair it with the AU$49 Small plan on a 24-month contract. The plan comes with 50GB a month and access to Vodafone’s 5G network. Note that Optus also has a plan for the same price, but it only comes with 30GB (though wider 5G coverage). If you sign up with Vodafone, you’ll also receive a bonus pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds FE.

Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,574.96

Want your new phone to have a bigger screen? The Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus has a 6.7-inch display, making it a little larger than the 6.2-inch screen on the standard S24. We think Vodafone has the best plan for most people – we recommend the AU$49 Small plan on a 24-month contract, which will give you a healthy 50GB a month. Optus’ S24 Plus plan works out to be the same price as Vodafone, and Optus arguably has better 5G coverage, though you’re only getting 30GB of data. Go with Vodafone and you’ll also receive a free pair of Samsung earbuds.

Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,874.96

Samsung Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus: key information

The new Samsung Galaxy S24 range features a mix of hardware and software improvements, although Samsung has specifically honed in on the latter with this iteration, specifically with its newfound AI tools.

The gap between Google and Samsung devices has dramatically shortened when it comes to AI integration, and that’s thanks to Samsung’s partnership with Google in the making of the S24 series. It means that features that were once exclusive to the Google Pixel 8, such as Magic Editor and generative AI wallpaper, are now coming to Galaxy. 

Samsung’s cooperation with Google has also brought over the Circle to Search feature, which lets you circle anything on-screen with your finger after long-pressing the home button to instantly search for it on Google. We think that’s an exciting development for Samsung users. See an outfit you like on Instagram? Not sure where you know that actor from? Need help identifying a plant? This feature can help you find answers.

Also following in the footsteps of Google, Samsung has promised seven years of OS and security updates. That gives the S24 series better longevity over any Samsung phone that has come before it, and it means better value for money at a time when plenty of people can’t afford to upgrade their phones every other year. The commitment means Samsung’s support now lasts longer than Apple’s, which is a real boon.
