Samsung Galaxy S5 release date: where can I get it?
Come to me, my precious...

The Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is set for April 11 2014, and the UK's networks are clamouring to sell you the latest must-have flagship.

But where exactly should you queue and what funds should you have available in your bank account when you do?

One retailer is listing the Samsung Galaxy S5 UK price as £549.98 (having dropped it from £599.98) if you opt for a SIM-free handset, and information about other network deals is starting to trickle in.

We've rounded up all the information available for you and will keep this page updated - the only question now is what colour should you get?


The Galaxy S5 is available from Samsing itself as of its April 11 release date.

Samsung's selling the handset in four colours SIM-free for £649.


If you're looking to go with EE then you can order the S5 on a £37.99 per month deal with a £59.99 upfront handset cost.

You can go check out all of EE's options right here.


O2's offering the S5 on pay monthly Refresh and PAYG tariffs. Deals start at £38 per month with 4G and an upfront cost of £69.99.

Jump straight onto a £49 per month contract though and you'll get the handset for free.


Cue the deja vu - it's also available on Vodafone, and you can order it right this minute over on the website. Vodafone is the only place you'll be able to get the gold version of the handset.

As for the 4G options, the phone starts at £42 a month (for 3GB of data) with a £19 upfront cost for the handset itself.

Virgin Media

The other big red network has announced its deals for the S5, revealing that it is available for TV, broadband and home phone customers from just £29 a month.

Virgin Media customers who pick up a Samsung Galaxy S5 earn themselves a £10 monthly saving, inclusive insurance and unlimited calls and texts to other Virgin Media mobiles.

Tesco Mobile

Tesco reckons it's got the S5 at the UK's most competitive price - you can get the handset for free on a £34.50/month 24-month contract, with 4G included at not extra cost. That only gets you 1GB of data though, alongside 5000 texts and 1500 minutes. Check it out here.
