The release of the new Samsung Galaxy S21 is edging closer and closer, bringing Samsung specs into 2021. And yes, while it will be a truly impressive phone, its likely massive price tag makes some of Samsung's older devices seem more tempting.
In fact, for those not worried about having the latest and greatest, the almost two-generations-old Samsung Galaxy S10 deals could be an excellent route to go down with rapidly falling price tags.
Two S10 contracts stand out in particular, one on O2 and one on the Three network. Both offer some pretty affordable bills, with one being perfect for those on a budget and the other for those who need a bit more data.
Of course, you could find some middle ground with Samsung Galaxy S20 deals, but for those really looking to keep costs low, the Galaxy S10 feels like an unrivalled choice to us.
