Samsung S9 deals: price comparison

The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals:

The SIM-free price of the Samsung S9 is £739 so that's how much you need to pay if you buy without a contract. If you want a contract deal, we think these are the best options...

1. Samsung Galaxy S9 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £45 per month
If you want to get the Samsung S9 but you don't want to pay anything upfront, this is the best deal - as long as you're willing to jump through a couple of hoops. This is a 30GB plan on O2, and buying through Mobile Phones Direct will bag you £144 cashback - reducing the £51 monthly fee to a far more attractive £45 per month. Total cost over 24 months is £1080

2. Samsung Galaxy S9 | £24 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £44 per month
If you're looking to pick up the Samsung S9 on the EE network, don't mind how much data you get - perhaps you're normally on WiFi anyway? - this is the cheapest way to get hold of the S9. It's only £24 upfront and then the monthly cost is £44 which works out about as cheap as it gets. Total cost over 24 months is £1080.

3. Samsung Galaxy S9 | £140 upfront | 16GB | Unlimited calls and texts | £39 per month
This is the cheapest Samsung S9 deal in this pre-order period and it comes via Vodafone and Mobiles.co.uk which is very frequently the cheapest place to buy phones like this. £140 upfront isn't too bad compared to what else is out there, and £39 is as cheap as you're going to get without paying something more like £240 upfront. Total cost is £1076 over 24 months

4. Samsung Galaxy S9 | £150 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £39 per month
If you're looking to pick up a Galaxy S9 deal on the O2 network, the cheapest way is to opt for this pre-order deal from Mobiles.co.uk. You could order from O2.co.uk but you'll end up paying a lot more. £150 isn't too bad for a brand new phone and £39 per month for 20GB data is comparable to last year's Galaxy S8 launch deals so you're not paying over the odds. Total cost is £1086 over 24 months

5. Samsung Galaxy S9 | £110 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £43 per month
This is the best Samsung Galaxy S9 pre-order deal currently going on the EE network. 15GB data is more than enough for 99% of people while the £110 upfront cost is about as cheap as you'll find it in these early days unless you want to significantly ramp up those monthly fees. Total cost is £1142 over 24 months

6. Samsung Galaxy S9 | FREE upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £48 per month
This is a new tariff launched this morning at Affordable Mobiles. You get the Samsung S9 for free, leaving you paying £48 per month for your contract which includes a whopping 25GB data and unlimited calls and texts. It's only £10 more than the EE deal above, with the added benefit of not costing you a penny upfront! Total cost over 24 months is £1152

7. Samsung Galaxy S9 | £79 upfront | 12GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £49 per month
Three is rarely  the cheapest network when it comes to brand new phones but this looks like the best Samsung Galaxy S9 deal on the Three network so far in this pre-order period. The £79 upfront fee is obviously quite attractive but the sting in the tail is that £49 monthly cost. The bonus with this deal is that Three is giving away FREE Netflix for a year with all its S9 deals, worth about £96! Total cost is £1327 over 24 months

The best Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus deals:

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £51 per month
If you want a Samsung S9 Plus deal with no upfront cost then you're going to need to pay above £50 monthly. This looks like the best value deal on O2, with £51 per month getting you loads of data - 30GB - with nothing at all to pay upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £1224

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus | £110 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £48 per month
Fair to say that Samsung S9 Plus deals on EE are a bit more expensive than on O2 at the moment. But this deal stands out as being the best value option on EE with 10GB data, £110 upfront and £48 per month. Total cost over 24 months is £1262

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus | £229.99 upfront | 16GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £39 per month
This S9 Plus deal on Vodafone offers decent value particularly if you don't mind pay a chunk up front. £229.99 at the start will reduce your monthly payments to just £39 per month with 16GB data - lots of deals out there cost the same but with just 4GB so this is the best option on Vodafone. Total cost over 24 months is £1165.99

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus | £37.99 upfront | 12GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £54 per month
Three is the most expensive network to buy this phone on but if you really want to be on Three then this deal is worth a look. The £37.99 upfront cost is very reasonable and then you've just got the £54 monthly fees to worry about. You do get 12GB data which for most people is easily enough. Total cost over 24 months is £1333.99

Samsung S9 deals: should you buy today?

It's importantly to know that with brand new flagship handsets like the S9, the networks and resellers almost always place what we'll call an 'early adopter tax' on pre-order deals.

So if you sign up for an S9 deal in the pre-order phase you will end up paying a bit more than if you were to wait even just a couple of weeks when prices will inevitably slacken off a bit. So our advice is to hold off a bit and wait for the second wave of prices to come through in mid-March unless you really can't wait! Rest assured that T3 will keep this page up to date with the best S9 deals as the market changes.

Samsung S9 deals: should you go SIM only instead?

It's often cheaper with brand new phones to simply buy them outright and pair them with a SIM only deal instead. We've looked at the options and we think it's very much worth your while considering the above option.

The cheapest main S9 deal above costs £1076 over two years on the Vodafone network. Meanwhile, our current favourite SIM deal - 12GB on Three for £14 per month - paired with the £739 cost of the phone outright works out at £1075 - saving you a grand total of £1!

Not worth the hassle for a £1 saving you say? Well hold your horses just a second - because as you'll see from the majority of the currently available deals in our price comparison tool above, most 24 month plans cost well in excess of £1075.

For example, the cheapest Three deal costs £1327, while if you buy the phone and get the 12GB SIM only deal on the same network you'll save yourself £252 over 24 months! Check out the current best SIM only deals below.
