The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals in October 2018

It was quite spectacular just how cheap Samsung Galaxy S9 deals got so quickly after release. Even just a couple of months after release, we started seeing sub-£25 per month tariffs on Samsung's latest and greatest flagship phone and the good times continue to roll.

You can see all the best Galaxy S9 deals in our price comparison below, but the price point we're still loving is that £23 per month option - both Vodafone and O2 have impressive tariffs, with the upfront price coming down to a more reasonable level again. In fact, it's not a million miles off what you'd pay to buy a one year older Galaxy S8 deal at the moment..

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...

The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deal on EE

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £170 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £25pm
If you've seen the low bill tariffs for the Samsung S9 that networks like O2 and Vodafone have been offering, we're afraid EE can't generally get as cheap. But this is a decent effort from Carphone Warehouse-owned e2save. Total cost over 24 months is £770

The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on O2

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £189 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 1GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £18pm
O2 has joined the cheap bills party with this 1GB tariff on the S9. There's a lot to pay upfront, but the bills come down to a very attractive sub-£20. We like...A LOT. Total cost over 24 months is £621

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £125 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 3GB data | 1000 minutes | Unlimited texts | £23pm
For a few weeks there, this was THE Samsung Galaxy S9 deal that we were loving the most. That was until prices improved again on Vodafone. So this still costs a bit less than our current Editor's Pick, but you get less data and calls. Well worth a look if you're a fan of O2. Total cost over 24 months is £677

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, but O2 gives it a decent run for its money. We're scratching our head as to how you could possibly use more data than that each month. Total cost over 24 months is £912

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £99.99 upfront | 16GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £32pm
It's a big welcome back to an old favourite. Some of Vodafone's great value 16GB tariffs have returned, and the Galaxy S9 hasn't been left out of the party. It's a nicely rounded deal this one, with an OK upfront shout and then perfectly decent monthly payments as well. And 16GB of data each month will be more than enough for most mortals. Total cost over 24 months is £867.99

 The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on Three

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £54.99 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £36pm
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 £918.99
