Little over a month into 2020 and its time to re-start the cycle - the cycle of yearly phone launches. And in what now seems like an annual tradition, Samsung will be the first to kick off the year's launches.
We've already had a few releases from Samsung to catch our attention - the Lite devices and A51/A71 - but now we've got the real hook, line and sinker in the form of Samsung Galaxy S20 deals.
Following on from last year's Samsung Galaxy S10, this trio of devices is Samsung's brand new flagship range, complete with massive camera set-ups, superior displays and masses of internal power.
So with these three handsets - the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra - now available to pre-order, where can you get them? A massive host of retailers have obviously got involved but for a lot of people, the high-street brand Carphone Warehouse will be the first to come to mind.
And where Carphone Warehouse itself leads, its even more affordable stable-mates Mobiles.co.uk and iD Mobile aren't far behind. We've done the full deep-dive to find the best offers from these brands on these new Samsung phones, complete with free headphone offers and 5G for the price of 4G.
Are there any Galaxy S20 promotions from these retailers?
As is the norm with new phone launches, there are plenty of promotions to grab your attention and lure you towards a certain deal. The most obvious one is the inclusion of a free pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds+ - Samsung's new iteration of the popular earbuds. However, don't be lured in by this as it is a retailer wide offer, with any pre-order deal having it.
Another retailer wide offer is that Samsung will offer trade-in discounts from your old device, getting you a chunk off the price of the S20 when you give up your old phone.
As for the brands mentioned here - Carphone, Mobiles and iD - there are a few promotions to keep in mind. Both Carphone and Mobiles.co.uk are offering a 5G for the price of 4G promotion and iD Mobile has a discount code "ID2999" to save £30 on the S20 family.
Samsung Galaxy S20 deals from Carphone:
Samsung Galaxy S20 5G: at Carphone Warehouse | Vodafone | £59.99 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £49 per month
This deal offers the Galaxy S20 with 5G for the price of 4G. It gets you 20GB of data at a price of £49 and £59.99 upfront. While you're not getting anywhere near as much data as with the Mobiles.co.uk deal below, the pricing here is excellent.
Samsung Galaxy S20 5G: at Mobiles.co.uk | O2 | £100 upfront (with code 10OFF) | 90GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £49 per month
This deal splits the costs across both upfront and monthly areas. You end up paying £100 upfront and £49 a month but for that price you're getting a pretty massive 90GB of data - perfect for the 5G speeds and latency you're getting.
Samsung Galaxy S20: at iD Mobile | £69.99 upfront (with code ID2999) | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £39.99 per month
Yes, you're not getting the 5G enabled version of the S20 here but what you are getting is iD Mobile's affordable pricing. The monthly bills come in at just £39.99 with 30% off the upfront spend, too. Pair that with the 5GB of data on offer and this is looking like a solid choice for those wanting the handset at a lower price.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus deals from Carphone:
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus: at Carphone Warehouse | Vodafone | £99.99 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £57 a month
Stepping up in cost, the S20 Plus lands you a considerable upgrade to power, battery capacity and the camera set-up. While you're still getting the same amount of data as with the Carphone S20 deal above, you are paying a fair bit more. But, to help balance that out, you're getting a free pair of Galaxy Buds+ with this deal.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus: at Mobiles.co.uk | EE | £125 upfront (with code 10OFF) | 60GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £54 a month
With all S20 Plus and Ultra deals you get those free Galaxy Buds+, including this one. But where this deal shines is with the 60GB of data you're getting on EE, the most popular network around. However, it does come in at a higher cost than what you can get from Carphone above.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra deals from Carphone:
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: at Carphone Warehouse | Vodafone | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited data, minutes and texts | £75 a month
This really feels like the carpe diem equivalent of a phone contract. Yes, it is very costly but you're getting the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra - Samsung's best phone to date - with an unlimited data cap and those free Samsung Galaxy Buds+. Got the cash to splash? This will be the way to go.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: at Mobiles.co.uk | O2 | £299 upfront (with code 10OFF) | 60GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £59 a month
Want something a bit cheaper than above? If you don't mind putting some more money into your upfront cost, you can drop your monthly bills down to £59 a month here. You get 60GB of data on O2 while still getting the free Buds +.
What are the Samsung Galaxy S20 devices like?
Samsung Galaxy S20:
The cheapest of the three new devices but easily the one most people will go for. Like its two bigger brothers, the S20 comes with 5G compatibility and a 120Hz display meaning smooth transitions between different apps and activities. It has the smallest display at 6.2-inches but holds the same Quad-HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display. Internally, there's a triple camera set-up, offering a telephoto 64MP camera and a wide angle and Ultra Wide, plus a 4000mAh battery and 12GB RAM.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus:
Stepping up in cost, the S20 Plus is the middle choice, landing you the same camera set-up as above but with the addition of a depth vision lens allowing to create 3D feeling images. The battery is increased to a size of 4500mAh and the screen climbs to 6.7-inches.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra:
Finally, the impressive sounding 'Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra'. It has the most advanced camera, offering a 108MP camera and the ability to dynamically shift between that mode and a 12MP mode. And most impressively, the S20 Ultra offers 100x space zoom to completely show up the Huawei P30 Pro. It also has the largest battery at 5000mAh.
