Hmmm, you don't get 3GB data, unlimited texts and calls with that deal ha

You should include the tariff details somewhere in your title

Samsung galaxy S9 £739 Sim free which is cheaper.....


The deal is with the phone and a Sim with calls, minutes and data
I see what the deal is but it's cheaper to buy a phone SIM-free rather than taking out on finance so in the end for example if you buy a Samsung Galaxy S9 on contract you end up paying more so therefore you're taking a phone out on finance is technically not yours could end up paying £1,200 if you buy sim free only £739.

So you're saying it's cheaper if you get less? Of course if you don't get it on a contract it will be cheaper, but equally you don't get any data, minutes or texts. Additionally many people can't pay £739 upfront but even if you do you still need to pay £10+ per month for the air time that they require to make the phone functional.

Basically my point is I'm helping people not getting into debt of basically having the newest phone on the market it's not essential taking a phone out on finance. I'm on a SIM only deal and if I want a new phone I just buy it SIM free that way I'm not in debt and I'm not committed to long-term contract with any network provider meaning if I lost my job tomorrow and I've got the newest phone at £50 a month with a 24 month contract that could would be problems.
Please bear in mind that I have posted this deal as its the best I can find for a new S8 and a loaded sim.
Don't vote cold unless there is a deal out there that will either match or beat it.

I was going to get a Sim free but this is cheaper and you can keep the £500+ in the bank

A very credible point, but it's worth noting this contract is cheaper after cashback and also includes the air time. Personally I'd move the cost of the contract into a bills account and thus if I lost my job I've already paid for the contract. Ultimately though should someone be taking out a contract on a high end phone they should have accounted for these debts in their budgeting irrespective of income.
I dream of cheap Note 8 deals.
I think this is a very decent deal tbh. In a few days you can find one of these deals back on HUKD and the same people will be voting HOT coz they would have expected S8 price to go down but guess what it won't just like S7

Sometimes this site is really strange as many people have joined new who dont understand shit and just vote anything cold without giving any reason.

Good work OP

Totally agree
Voted hot btw
Like I said good deal.

But if you put in your description not to vote cold, then guess what, people will vote cold, because the minority are silly and vote cold just because they can.

Yes there were deals last year following release of s8. I got an s7 on EE £20.50pm 2gb data that was March last year and posted on this site, no upfront cost either. I think people on here are waiting to see a similar deal this year. I don't think posting a deal on an S8 which was available not long after release is going to get many hot votes irrespective of whether it is the cheapest deal around at the moment.

To be fair it is a good deal and it is hard beaten for what it is. But I see your point.

On the other issue of people voting cold for no reason, you know it happens, I know it happens, and it's just plain annoying.

If people see something going cold on the main screen, then they will vote cold, I don't personally, I'd rather read the description then make my choice.

The voting system is wrong, and hukd must know it.

They obviously can't come up with a better system or it would have been implemented.

The problem is that Samsung (and some other manufacturers who rely on brand loyalty, I'm sure you can name them yourself) phones are ridiculously overpriced, there's no getting round it and no denying it. This price is bonkers for last year's phone and the fact this may possibly be the best deal at the moment (I haven't looked and won't be) doesn't detract from the fact this is poor value in the slightest.

I've had a quick scout and there aren't many deals better for this phone etc.
I totally get what you are saying however, and the sooner someone comes along and splits these two in half (apple and Samsung) the better, Nokia are giving it a good go, and I'd personally love to see them take market share and sales off the two I've mentioned

Me too, I'm actually quite excited about the 7 Plus although the bugginess of my wife's 5 is dampening that a bit. Updates are very regular but it seems they need to test them more, quantity over quality it seems at the moment. Hoping a little more experience will settle them in. Moto I love the touches they add to vanilla android like the one button nav, but again quality control needs upping.

For me the best version of android is oneplus.
The features they add, really add to the experience of stock android.
The themes etc that they add for that bit of flair I love.
Maybe just me, but the are definitely number 1 for me.

You are comparing apples with oranges. If you buy this phone without a contract, it assumes you want to use the actual phone for something therefore you should compare the usage tariff included with the contract against your deal of buying the phone without contract and having a SIM deal... is your deal still better?
Edited by: "jayok" 3rd Mar
Look at it another way, the Nokia 8 can be had for c. £350 at times and likely again soon. It also has SD835*. So hardware is very similar; even allowing for more and better r&d on the camera and software, just how much mark up are Samsung getting for their name I ask?

*YesI know it's Exynos in some markets, still basically same chipset/chipset cost.

What then pay say 15 a month anyway for an ok tariff

I have a SIM only deal at £30 a month from 3 unlimited text internet phone calls and 30gb tethering. If I want a Samsung S9 I can trade my Samsung S7 Edge online with Samsung it's worth £206 which would be taken off the price of the new Samsung Galaxy S9 which retails at £739 or I can just buy outright with no debt at the end of it.

So you pay more per month for more tariff and buy the handset seperately and then come on here and decry this deal. In fact you are not comparing applies and oranges, you are comparing apples and fish!
So basically 360 for a year plus 533 for the s9 after trading 206 pound s7 .. I'd just get it for say 50 a month all in and sell your s7 edge and use the money in what you like

So lets evaluate your 'deal':

£739 for phone
£30 x 24 for contract
= £1459
Pros:
+None
Cons:
-Massive initial cost

Galaxy S9 on o2, 30gb data (mobiles.co.uk)
£46 x 24 for contract
= £1104
Pros:
+No upfront cost
+£60 Topcashback
Cons:
-none

£415 cheaper and you don't have to pay anything up front, and you think your method is better?!
