The best Samsung Galaxy S20 deals to pre-order right now

Samsung Galaxy S20 deals are looking like one of the best options on the market right now, despite only recently launching and still being in the pre-order period. However, there is just one major downfall - the cost.

But where the S20 feels pricey, both the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and Ultra are carrying massive costs so we can't help but feel that the Galaxy S20 will be where most people are going to be drawn if they're looking for one of Samsung's latest and greatest.

And despite its position as the most affordable of the three phones, the S20 still comes packed with some serious hardware, software, design and everything in-between. Powered by a 4000mAh battery, a 12GB RAM processor and the high-tech world of 5G, the internals are clearly representative of the flagship trio it comes from.

A scan across the outside shows a triple camera set-up, offering an ultra-wide, wide-angle and 64MP telephoto lens. And as expected, Samsung has opted for a 120hz 6.2-inch AMOLED display, giving you impeccable refresh rates and gaming experiences.

So with all of the details of Samsung Galaxy S20 deals lining up to be a pretty solid purchase, the only question left is where to buy it. We've gathered the top pre-order contracts and listed them below. There is a long wait to get your device once pre-ordered though, with it being sent out on Tuesday, March 10.

And if you want something even more powerful than this, we have individual pricing guides for Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus deals and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra deals (if you don't mind the considerable cost).

Samsung Galaxy S20 deals: FAQ

How much does the Samsung Galaxy S20 cost SIM-free?

Thinking that SIM-free would be the better option? It could save you money when paired with a cheap SIM only deal.

Going for a SIM-free Samsung Galaxy S20 will cost you £799. There are two models, depending on whether you want 4G or 5G however, both will set you back the exact same amount.

Right now, no one will be beating anyone else for price and you will end up paying that price from any retailer. Simply pick the one that works best for you. We would say the best price you'll get is by going through Samsung and making use of its trade-in function.

How does the Samsung Galaxy S20 compare to the Ultra and Plus models?

Obviously the main differentiation between the S20 and its two bigger brothers is price. Samsung Galaxy S20 deals come way under, offering an affordable stepping stone for the S20 range.

However, that price drop does mean a drop in specs. The S20 has the smallest battery, the weakest camera and the smallest screen size. An upgrade to the Plus will simply act as a beefed up S20 and then the Ultra...the Ultra is in a zone of its own, both in specs and in price. 

Should you get the Galaxy S20 or the Samsung S10?

It's not just a question of which range of S20 devices to choose from, it is also about whether the S20 or last year's S10 would be better for you. And that question comes down to whether you want the latest specs or the cheaper price tag.

Samsung Galaxy S10 deals provide a far cheaper price tag but you won't be getting the same kind of specs. The screen won't be as HD and lacks the 120HZ refresh rate the S20 has. The battery is smaller and the camera isn't as powerful but that doesn't mean its a bad phone.

Until Samsung Galaxy S20 deals came around, the S10 was one of the world's best smartphones and still holds that level of premium.
