Was looking for an S7, and this seems a very good deal to me.

On Vodafone, and includes 500mb a month euro data as well which prob comes in useful for summer hols (basic surfing mind!)

Quidco cash back (if it tracks) of £75 too on all S7 deals

Tried to get EE to price match this as an upgrade last week,they got near enough for me to agree but even with 4 contracts at stake they couldn't match it.

I have still yet to see a deal for an S7 attract any serious heat. Only thing I can think of is the cost as Samsung do make a great phone. £800 over 24 months is a lot to pay. Technology tends to come down in price as time goes buy but for some reason with smartphones they get dearer year on year. Such a shame that Samsung have priced on par with apple as am sure they should be a lot cheaper.

as a guide...30 people votes hot on this, so as long as a couple thought it was a good deal and got themselves a saving then that's

When you consider the average UK wage (median) is just over 500 quid/week gross, 800+ for a phone over 2 years is a huge investment. Use caution. (_;)

£8 out of 500 per week is a lot? That's 1.6% of your weekly salary on something you spend so much time and can still get a decent price ~£80 when you sell it 2 years later.

I voted cold as you can get the S7 Edge from Vodafone via mobiles.co.uk for the same monthly contract BUT 100 upfront.

I voted cold because it looks like either the manufacturers or airtime providers have jumped on the bandwagon that people must have the latest phone and are prepared to pay for it. It would be interesting to see how much an S7 costs in some of our European countries where they earn half or even less what we do. A few years ago I had an S2 which was the top phone at the time on android. I was paying £20.00 a month for 24 months with unlimited texts, unlimited data, 300 mobile minutes and unlimited landline minutes. Whilst today's S7 has improved having a better camera, processor etc etc if you want to ring, text or email someone it is no better than anything else on the market. At one time only Apple commanded a premium price but now they are all very similar. For me I will stick to my G4 costing £320.00 + data package. Far better options buying the phone outright because if you want to change it you can. Top end phones are costing nearly double today what they were 6 or 7 years ago. I don't think wages have quite gone up by the same percentage. If you can afford it, great but personally I prefer not to waste my money on the latest tech and wait until it comes down in price. This is a good deal for a business user or someone who is self employed but I don't need 6gb data or unlimited minutes. From 7am in the morning I am focused on going to work until 6pm. My boss pays me to work for him and not checking facebook or whatever on my phone and when I am at home the wifi is free. The more people subscribe to £800+ deals the more the airtime providers will continue to exploit us.
