The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals in September 2018

We've been aghast at how cheap Samsung Galaxy S9 deals got so quickly after release. And we thought that with the new iPhones being launched, S9 prices would get even cheaper. But unfortunately they've actually just increased in price instead.

£23 per month is still the price point we're most keen on, but the upfront price has just shot up. That means your best bet right now might be to go for a Samsung S9 deal with a bigger data allowance instead - there are some very nice deals on the UK's fastest 4G network EE, and some don't make you pay a penny upfront.

You can compare Galaxy S9 deals and get the best data, call and text allowance for for your needs using our daily refreshed comparison chart. 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 - and much cheaper than Galaxy Note 9 deals of course.

You can get the lowdown on the fantastic new flagship phone from Samsung in our whistle-stop review below (or just head to our Samsung Galaxy S9 review here). The Galaxy S9 is certainly a great phone, now use our chart to compare deals and get a great price...

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...

EE is leading the way when it comes to big data, with 30 glorious gigabytes of data to stream, surf and download with every month - this O2 effort just got more expensive.

 The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on Three

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £34.99 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £35pm
Three isn't usually exactly what we'd call 'cheap' when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S9, and this most affordable tariff used to include a mighty 30GB of data a month rather than the much more meagre 4GB it now demonstrates. All our love for Three right now is for the incredible AYCE price below. Total cost over 24 months is £874.99
