Decent deal from vodafone and by far the cheapest big data deal i can find through mobiles.co.uk. £160 upfront which can be offset by existing samsung s6/s7 phone followed by 24 monthly payments of £37.00. Plus you get the free speaker worth £99.99
Considering a 20gb sim only plan from vodafone is £22.20 a month this makes the phone alone £516.00 minus speaker value £416.00. Plus an extra 4gb data

I never buy phone contracts, just sim ones and buy the phone separately as it's always cheaper. However it seems this deal buck's that trend. But why anyone would pay over £1k for a phone is beyond me; although it does seem a good deal for those stupid enough to pay it. Heat added.
cheapest deal for it ive seen, yes its a total of £1k overall but not a lot of people have nearly £700 quid lying around to buy one outright and 24GB of data if idiotic, ill add heat poster, cos i like to buck the trend too :-)
Expensive for sure, but the best offer so far. Good find.
Too expensive, imo
good deal

​So how much a month is your sim only contract?

ridiculous amount for a phone, a decent spec laptop is cheaper. what will be interesting is to see if there is a reduction in s7 prices
^What has a laptop got to do with a phone?

I have three in the house. 2@£10 (2gb, unlmtd) and another £18 - ALCE. The missus has an S7 bought through the O2 buy then cancel deal (£370) and me and my lad have 6p's both used at £210 and £207. Although had to unlock one from EE for about £12 (can't remember exactly)
I'll wait...I always get a very good contract deal overall....and to be honest I'd rather have 700quid to spend in Ibiza or on 4 months food shopping or a new tv and laptop.....horses for courses.....I always manage to pay less per new contract then I did previously....and come on....700quid for a phone!?!?!? lol!!.....what mugs we are if contract is your only option then go for it.....if you have the 700quid to spend on it outright then do it, do it! just don't get into any financial difficulties doing whatever you do
Got to agree with a lot of comments here... It's a good price compared to other offers so great on that OP. . But it is hellishly expensive for a phone, especially when you look at tech specs coming from Chinese brands. Think blinko's comment relation to laptop puts some perspective on it. I am going to start inprinting a behaviour on Samsung by not paying such high prices, any one with me? ;-)
I thought the S8 would have beed today's hottest deal but evidently it was a phone made by some company called Motorola.

You're not going to believe this but it can ring, text and email people. It can browse the internet and it will even take photos with it's 13mp camera. Even has a fingerprint scanner. Price......£139.99

So I am thinking that everyone who was going to vote just once with some heat today in the mobile category has given their heat to the Moto G 5 and that's why all S8 and most of S7 deals are cold lol. But then the main reason could be that Motorola are pitching their products reasonably priced where Samsung and Apple are just taking the p. You can't tell me that there is an extra £500.00 of technology in the S8 or any other phone for that matter.
Played with an S8 in an EE store.....very nice, but it doesn't feed me chocolate.....very disappointing....

Apples & Oranges. You can't compare a laptop to a mobile phone.
Imagine someone saying "the ps4 was a 150£ on black Friday. Is this 9 times as much?"

Yes, very true but the miniaturisation is getting more expensive and the phones are getting larger lol. Back in the day I was paying £20.00 a month with EE for the Galaxy S2 and had unlimited texts, minutes and data. Paid £29.99 up front for the phone. Must be all those 4G transmitters that are costing the money today.

I do miss those days. No doubt the prices are quite ridiculous these days.
I remember when 35£ a month seemed ridiculous and now we have the S8+ being offered at £60 a month. I'll have probably get the S8+ but on a ~37£ deal
Yes, I got called a liar on here as I secured a retention deal on the S2. EE wouldn't match Dial-A-Phones price at first but when I rang back to get my PAC code they matched it. Unlimited data lol. I guess 3G wasn't that good back then but £20.00 a month got me a top end phone at the time and a good package. The guy who called me a liar rang EE to get a similar deal and they told him no. I must have been lucky I guess. great thing is though is they sent me a Galaxy Ace by mistake. It got exchanged no probs but when I checked my next month's bill they had credited the cost of the Galaxy Ace at £79.99 so got an amazing deal in the end. Happy days. Problem is now is that most of us are getting used to changing our phone every 24 months or less so demand is high. Manufacturers know this. They will have very clever marketing people and both Samsung and Apple know they have a core market for their items at launch with people very willing to part with their money just to get the latest phone. I felt like this when I got the HTC Desire / Bravo on it's launch day. My first smartphone. Not had that feeling for a long time now and have waited. When I got my S2 I nearly sent it back as I actually preferred the look and UI of the HTC but kept the S2. Did the same with my LG G4 as I liked my Galaxy S4 at the time and thought what have I done buying this brick lol. It's been a good phone has the LG and will see where the G6 pitches price wise and either get that or an S7 Edge. I don't really want to pay much more than £650.00 over two years so just need the S7 to come down a little. My guess is I will get an S7 Edge cheaper than the G6 so will see. I got a good deal on the G4 as it came with a free smart watch which I sold for £150.00. The G6 launches here at the end of April and my contract is due at the end of June so I have a couple of months yet.
