The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 plans and prices in Australia compared

null

If the Samsung Galaxy S8 feels a little too small, and even the S8 Plus won't cut it for you, perhaps this dazzling mammoth of a device can satiate your desire for a handheld monolith. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is here.

The Note 8 is the successor to the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, which launched in 2016 and was recalled (for the first time) within only a month due to its battery catching fire. Many of the Note 7's desirable traits have carried over to this release — the phablet form factor with a larger screen (6.3-inch), some beefier internal specs, the inclusion of an S-Pen stylus — but here's hoping Samsung have left the battery issues behind. You can check out our Note 8 review here.

Best budget and overall value plan – Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | 25GB data | Unlimited international calls | $95 pm

Best big data option – Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | 105GB data | Unlimited international and roaming calls | $105 pm

It's very easy to get upsold with the Galaxy Note 8 from Optus at the moment, and depending what you're after, it's mostly going to be worth it. An incredible 105GB data limit, unlimited international calls, 4GB roaming data, and all the Optus extras make this plan very enticing, especially considering how little more you'd spend when compared with the cheapest ($88) plan. Total cost over 24 months is $2,520

Best Telstra plan – Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | 60GB data | Unlimited international talk and text | $139 pm

Telstra isn't as competitive with Android device plans at the moment, opting to offer more bang-for-buck with Apple's latest flagships, but if you're deadset on the coverage and extras on offer, this is the best Telstra plan for a Note 8. You'll get 60GB of data, unlimited international calls and texts, 2GB of roaming data, and a 24-month subscription to two Foxtel Now Starter Packs. Like Vodafone below, you'll also only have your download speed reduced (to 1.5Mbps) when going over your 60GB cap instead of paying per GB. Total cost over 24 months is $3,336
