The best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals in July 2018

We've been talking up the incredible prices of the Samsung Galaxy S8 for a while now, and the network tariff refreshes for July have done nothing to alter that. In fact, a few of the S8 deals that had crept up a little bit at the end of last month and have now dropped down again. Meaning that if you were worried that you'd missed out on the best cheap Samsung Galaxy S8 deals, your anxieties have been allayed.

For example, you can now get it for less than £20 per month paying less than a tenner upfront! A quick bit of maths shows that the total cost is around the same as what you'd need to pay if you were simply buying a SIM-free Samsung S8 handset outright. That's frankly astonishing and just a little bit absurd. So even though the Samsung Galaxy S9 isn't much of an improvement on the S8, contract prices on the older phone have gone right down saving you a packet over the S9.

Our comparison chart below lists all the current cheapest prices of Samsung's brilliant 2017 flagship phone. Notwithstanding the release of the S9, Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X, the Samsung Galaxy S8 remains one of the most impressive phones ever released. Here you can find, filter and compare all of the best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals currently available in the UK.

Underneath the comparison tool, you'll find our editors' selections for all of the best value S8 deals currently available from the major networks, EE, O2, Vodafone and Three.

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £9.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £18pm
Well this is an absolute delight to behold. £18 per month is obviously fantastic for a phone that's still as good as the Samsung Galaxy S8. But the oppressive upfront cost that had been dogging this deal from Vodafone has now been vastly reduced. Bringing it down to a tenner means that the overall price is less than most shops can manage for the handset by itself! Total cost over 24 months is £441.99

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £23pm
Carphone Warehouse and the other retailers under its umbrella have been clearing up of late with this phenomenal Galaxy S8 deal. 4GB a month is relatively good and will suit a lot of smartphone users, and we love that you don't have to pay a penny upfront. It's an easy choice for our current Editor's Pick slot. Total cost over 24 months is £552

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £32pm
The Galaxy S8's bright and beautiful screen and included AKG earphones make it the ideal multimedia companion. To make the most of TV and music streaming services, you need a decent wedge of data so you can keep using away from the Wi-Fi. So here it is, one of the best 10GB data deals on the S8 as it stands and not a penny to pay at the outset. Total cost over 24 months is £768

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £33pm
This just overtook the lot as our favourite EE Galaxy S8 tariff with a bigger data allowance. The price has been around for a while, but was offering only 8GB of data each month. That's been bumped up now by Affordable Mobiles to a bountiful 20GB, and there's no need to pay anything upfront either. Total cost over 24 months is £792

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £49 upfront | 100GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £46pm
This may look expensive, but the Samsung s8 deal on Three just took an extraordinary £300 price drop, thanks to big cuts on the monthly bills and upfront spend. Plus, no other major network currently offers this sheer amount of data. But do you really need 100GB a month? If not, we suggest you look for something else. Total cost over 24 months is £1153

Samsung Galaxy S8: consider going SIM only

If you’re determined to get yourself a Samsung Galaxy S8, the most economical way of doing it is to buy the phone outright and pair it with a SIM only deal. The £689 RRP is certainly high, but it can still work out a little cheaper on average over the two years - especially now that some retailers are selling it for £100 less than that. Check out our page dedicated to the best unlocked SIM free Galaxy S8 prices.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review

The Galaxy S8 is a brilliant phone - another success for Samsung

Screen size: 5.8-inches | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | Rear camera: 12MP | Weight: 155g | OS: Android 7 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 3600mAh

Amazing, large display
Huge power
Great camera
Irritating biometric unlocking

With the Galaxy S8, Samsung is getting nearer and nearer to smartphone perfection - so much so that the Galaxy S9 barely seems to have improved on it. The bezel-less design is something a little bit special in an area of tech that can sometimes feel like it's standing still. There are advancements with the splendid screen and fantastic 12MP camera, too.

The best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on O2

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 3GB data | 1000 minutes | Unlimited texts | £23pm
It's a close run thing between this S8 deal and the best 4GB offering on Vodafone for our king of the hill. This one has a little less data and call allowance, so it get's pipped. But at least on this one you get O2's hot Priority rewards. Total cost over 24 months is £552

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £33pm
Thanks to £20 cashback, this S8 deal from Mobile Phones Direct actually almost works out effectively cheaper than the one above - even though you also get an extra 5GB of data allowance. That's a really pleasing effort, considering that you don't have to pay anything upfront and it's hard to quibble at the bills when you see just how much data is on offer. Total cost over 24 months is £792

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £36pm
30GB data deals from O2 on the Galaxy S8 just got great again. Free upfront is a great start, although the high-ish monthly bills are a bit more expensive than we would have liked. Total cost over 24 months is £864

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £43.99 upfront | 60GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £39pm
Crank the data allowance all the way up to a massive 60GB, and this Vodafone Galaxy S8 deal is among the most affordable. We can't quite imagine how you'd come close to using up 60GB (are you sure 30GB wouldn't be enough?), but paying less than £40 a month for the privilege isn't bad at all. Total cost over 24 months is £979.99

 The best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on Three

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £71.99 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £37pm
This is currently the cheapest way to buy the Galaxy S8 on Three, but it just got waaaaaaaaay more expensive. It's nowhere near to mounting a serious challenge to the other networks for sheer low prices. Total cost over 24 months is £959.99

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £97.99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £45pm
Wow! This is so much more expensive than what you used to be able to get on Three for 30GB of data. It used to be the network for big data deals, but has somewhat lost its mojo for the time being. Total cost over 24 months is £1177.99
