The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals in August 2018

We still can't quite believe how cheap Samsung Galaxy S9 deals have got. Still less than six months old, the Korean giant's flagship smartphone can be grabbed for only £23 per month and a not ridiculous amount upfront. Thankfully, Vodafone's winning tariffs just refuse to go away.

Vodafone may have the very cheapest prices, but we're also keen on come of the big data S9 deals that EE has up its sleeve. The UK's fastest 4G network has some 30GB tariffs that are looking really very tasty.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review

Incremental upgrade with one hell of a camera

Screen size: 5.8-inches | Resolution: QHD+ | Rear camera: 12MP | Weight: 163g | OS: Android 8 Oreo | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 400GB | Battery: 3000mAh

Incredible camera
Convenient finger scanner
Improvement on the astonishing S8...
...but not by much
Augmented reality not fully realised

So it's finally here, and our general impressions are predictably positive. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is really all about the camera, with most of the unveiling ceremony concentrating on the improvements that have been made to the front and rear snappers. It comes out of the box running off Android's latest Oreo operating system and a new chipset should make your using experience as swift as possible. We only wish it improved on the Galaxy S8 more...
