The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals in July 2018

Sorry folks, the really really good times for Samsung Galaxy S9 deals are over - for now at least. Things were looking peachy at the start if July, with Carphone Warehouse's Price Crash promotion and our old favourite £23 per month Mobiles.co.uk rocking a reasonable upfront price. But those little treats have now been cruelly taken away.

That leaves EE in pole position as the best value S9 deal network at the moment. 10GB is the current sweet spot for value, but it still has some 30GB tariffs that are looking pretty tasty, too. Vodafone still has the cheapest prices for lower data deals.

Or scroll down to our handpicked S9 deals below to see which are the hot ones you should take advantage of now. Vodafone may be having the best of things at the moment, but there are still decent offerings on EE and O2, as well.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review

Incremental upgrade with one hell of a camera

Screen size: 5.8-inches | Resolution: QHD+ | Rear camera: 12MP | Weight: 163g | OS: Android 8 Oreo | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 400GB | Battery: 3000mAh

Incredible camera
Convenient finger scanner
Improvement on the astonishing S8...
...but not by much
Augmented reality not fully realised

So it's finally here, and our general impressions are predictably positive. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is really all about the camera, with most of the unveiling ceremony concentrating on the improvements that have been made to the front and rear snappers. It comes out of the box running off Android's latest Oreo operating system and a new chipset should make your using experience as swift as possible. We only wish it improved on the Galaxy S8 more...
