The best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 deals for Black Friday 2018

It wasn't so long ago that the Galaxy Note 9 was the coolest new smartphone on the block. The big screen, big power phablet from one of the world's biggest tech companies. And you've come to the right place to find out what the best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 deals you can buy in the UK - this side of Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 and beyond.

The launch of the iPhone XS and XS Max has rather stolen the Note 9's thunder in that regard and the rumour in the industry is that the Samsung hasn't sold as well as some people had expected. But that may change now that we're starting to see some retailers wield the discounts. We've started to see enormous amounts of data for less than £50 per month and very little to pay upfront. Take that, iPhone XS!

So what are you getting for your money? A gargantuan 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, an equally giant 4,000mAh battery, a massive 8GB of RAM and starting onboard storage of a large 128GB. Everything about the Samsung Note 9 is big - which includes, unfortunately, the price tag. The handset is available from Samsung for £899.

That's why our guide to the best prices is so invaluable. So check out our comparison chart, which has the best of the currently available Note 9 deals on contract, as well as our handpicked favourites below.

Galaxy Note 9 price: how much does it cost SIM-free?

If you were hoping that we were going to sit here and tell you that buying a Note 9 outright is reasonably priced, then we have some disappointing news...

The starting RRP of the 128GB Galaxy Note 9 is £899. So, looking on the bright side, at least that's cheaper than the iPhone X! The 512GB version, however, is not - you're looking at £1,099 for that beasty.

So if you were thinking to grab it and combine with a new SIM only deal to save some cash, there aren't massive savings to be had (unless you don't mind slumming it with 500MB of data).
