Check out O2’s Galaxy S8 Plus webpage for more info on the tariffs available and to pre-order the phone. Note that pre-order customers should receive the Samsung Galaxy S8 eight days before it goes on general sale.
Best UK tariffs for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus: Sky Mobile
Sky Mobile only just opened its doors for business in January 2017, but is already proving itself a competitive rival to the likes of O2 and EE. The Galaxy S8 Plus deals on offer are certainly enticing.
At launch, you can bag the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus from just £40 per month, with no up-front cost.
£40 per month (broken down as £30 per month for the handset and £10 per month for the mobile service) bags you an S8 Plus on Sky Mobile’s Swap24 tariff. This gives you 1GB of data, plus free unlimited calls and texts as long as you’re a Sky TV customer. If you’re not a customer, you have a choice: pay an extra £10 per month for unlimited minutes and texts, or go Pay-As-You-Go instead.
Sky Mobile’s Swap24 tariff allows you to exchange your Galaxy S8 Plus for something new after that 24 month period is up. If you decline, you can have your monthly payments dropped to £38.50 per month for six months instead.
Alternatively, Sky Mobile also offers the Galaxy S8 Plus on its Swap12 tariff. This starts at £57 per month and gives you the same minutes, texts and data as the Swap24 contract. However, you’re now allowed to swap your beefy S8 Plus for a new blower after just 12 months instead of 24. Or if you decline, you can drop your payments to just £36 per month for the next 12 months.
Best UK tariffs for the Samsung Galaxy S8: Three
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus can also be pre-ordered from Three’s network, in a choice of two colours: either midnight black or orchid grey. And if you pre-order the S8 Plus ahead of the full launch, you’ll receive it eight days before the official UK release.
Those S8 Plus tariffs start at £40 per month, with a £99 up-front cost. Some of Three’s S8 Plus 24-month contract deals include:
- 500MB data, 300 minutes, unlimited texts – £99 upfront cost, £40 per month on Three’s Essential plan.
- 8GB data, unlimited minutes and texts – £99 upfront cost, £51 per month on Three’s Essential plan.
