Every time I do the math it always seams cheaper or the same price to go for a normal contract and I don’t have to have ££££ spare to buy the phone upfront. This s8 being a example, it’s gonna cost me £432 ( £18pm ) for 1gb data plan and £552 (£23pm) for a 4gb plan and that includes a new s8 on Vodafone. If I bought this used phone and wanted 1gb per month I would have to get a sim only for less than £5.5pm for it to work out less than the new phone contract priceThanks


I buy used phones in good condition after they lose their value and keep them for years so it works out much cheaper in the long term, I really don't need/want a new handset every 24 months. I don't like being tied into contracts, 1 month rolling contracts are more comfortable, I can leave if the company annoys me. Also I like to minimise monthly payments, even if it is only cheaper by £10-15.

Great price! Argh, I bought one a few weeks ago for £400 and Mrs has already smashed the screen! This price is just over the price of a new screen at £240.

But a word of warning for those who have not used this phone, it's not a matter of if but when you drop it and the screen will smash. They're so delicate.

Never ever ever buy a smartphone without a bumper case. It's well worth the £5.

I was just highlighting there is a rather large second hand market out there. Something like this should be no surprise really.
My wife just smashed her S9 screen after 2 weeks. It fell on the flat floor from 2 feets. Really fragile screen. My note 4 still going strong after 4 years and dropping thousand times. No more samsung for me when I decide to change phone.

People who spend £900 on a new flagship that depreciates by £600 in 18 months seem crazy to me, I only ever buy used phones because I don't like burning money... but to each their own. Would you whine about someone buying a year old used car to save £10k over buying new?

Sometimes it works out cheaper, sometimes it doesn't.

Not everyone wants to be tied into a 24 month contract. I don't know what my financial situation will be in 12,let alone 24 months time, so it's good to know I only have a month if something goes wrong.

Your example above, isn't indicative of every contract deal on the market, and most of the time, buying sim free with a cheap sim ony works out a hell of a lot cheaper.
My son's girlfriend dropped her S8, and yes the screen was cracked, fortunately she had insurance and got a new one. But another word of warning her phone also had a protective cover, so clearly a delicate phone. Still enjoying my note 4 which I have dropped on so many occasions without any damage.

My point is that one can have a perfectly good, brand new phone for less than £300 as long as not obsessed with "top brands".

So you prefer spending X amount outright instead of total of X in 24 installments? Solid logic!

In my case, I have an xiaomi mi mix 2s that I bought for £360 on my 0% on purchases credit card (the phone I wanted)

And have a 12gb 1 month sim plan that costs a tenner per month. Changeable if I find a better deal.
For those wanting a more robust perfectly fine Samsung, the j7 2017 is nice and can be bought for under £200 easily.

Ordered, thanks OP

+1 for smashed screen. Not even dropped. I think keys hit it in my bag. Very fragile!

Get their priorities straight? Like posting critical comments on deals they're not interested in

I'd say £300 for a Samsung S8 from a proper company when it's still one of the best phones on the market and it's a good price. If you don't agree that's fine but you'll probably want to avoid every single iPhone deal for the SE, 6, 6s, 7 and variants plus many others.

I'd take the A8 personally. With the S phones it's the totally pointless curved glass combined with AMOLED that makes them fragile and expensive to repair and hard to protect. The flat display on the A8 gives you all the features but makes it easier to look after.

Its excellent price for S8 . S7 edge is still selling between 230-250 and you can upgrade to new s8 just paying 50 pound more

S8 has excellent camera boht still and video, great design, waterproofing, SD Card, compact, Oreo software etc

I used to get samsung phones for sidesync which is great software to share the screen and data between your PC and mobile device

Only negative about samsung phones in my opinion is Touchwiz and average battery life and if you use brightess at higer level then you might end up with screen burn

It should not be such fragile with gorilla glass 5 protection
but then all light weight glass material phones with edge to edge screen are frangile to some extent . You cannot have good looking phone and durability at same time
If someoen really want durable phone then they should go for cat s41:D
