Cheap Samsung deals SIM only

If you’re planning to buy your Samsung phone outright, then you’ll want a brilliant SIM only deal to go with it. Take a look at our guide on the best SIM only deals to help you with your decision.

Decide how much calls, texts and data you need before finding the right SIM only deal for you. 

Cheap Samsung deals Pay As You Go 

If you’ve bought your Samsung outright, another choice you have is to get a pay as you go deal. Traditional pay as you go deals require you to top-up your phone in advance and pay a set amount for each minute, text and MB of data you use. 

The more affordable and popular option is a pay as you go bundle. When you buy a PAYG bundle, you receive an allowance of minutes, texts and data. This allowance expires after 30-days. You can then buy another bundle. Take a look at our PAYG guide for the best bundles.

How much are Samsung phones?

Image

Samsung has a wide selection of phones that can be more affordable than iPhones but at the pricier end of other Android brands. Samsung’s most recent phone was launched on 14th January 2021. The Samsung S21 5G is currently priced at £769 with the larger variants adding to the price considerably. This is a common price point for a newly-launched smartphone.

However, Samsung’s innovative folding devices come with a much higher price-tag. The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G will set you back a staggering £1,799. 

You’ll find a whole range of prices across Samsung’s collection of smartphones. If you want the cheapest option, you could go for older Samsung models, however, you’ll miss out on the latest exciting features.

How to compare Samsung deals 

Image

Samsung has such a huge range of different phones to suit all budgets that it can be hard knowing where to start. 

Here are some things to look out for when comparing the best Samsung deals:

  • Monthly allowance - figure out how much calls, texts and data you need each month. Find a deal that offers you the right amount. 
  • Budget - decide how much you’re comfortable spending upfront to get your Samsung phone and how much you want to spend monthly. 
  • Contract length - how long do you want to be tied down to a contract for? 12, 18, 24 or 36 months? 
  • Samsung model - decide what Samsung phone you want to help narrow down your search. We make some recommendations later on in this guide.
  • Refurbished or new - decide whether you want a brand new phone or if you’re happy with a cheaper refurbished phone. 
  • Existing customer deals - try ringing up your current network to see if they offer any existing customer deals.
  • Incentives - compare which providers offer perks and freebies to sweeten the deal. 
  • Timing - don’t buy the latest Samsung phone right away. The more patient you are, the cheaper deals you’ll be able to find later on.

When is the best time to buy Samsung deals?

Image

There are certain times of year where finding a cheap Samsung deal is easy. Here are the best times to be on the lookout:

  • New releases - when a new Samsung phone is released, the past models tend to go down in price. If you don’t mind getting the second latest model, then this is the time to look for deals. 
  • Summertime - Samsung usually releases a new Galaxy phone in March. Which means that by July/August the first discounts are available. 
  • Black Friday - this yearly sale is great for all kinds of deals. If you’re searching for a Samsung deal, then Black Friday is a safe bet. 
  • Anytime - cheap Samsung deals are available all year round, you just need to know where to look. Thankfully, we’re keeping the tables at the top of this guide updated, meaning you know where to come for the best Samsung deals.

Who has the best deal on Samsung phones?

Every network offers a great Samsung deal. Choosing the best deal depends on what you value most. For example, for unlimited data, Three often has great deals. For reliable service, EE often wins. Read our analysis of the UK’s mobile networks to find out more.

You can compare the best Samsung deals at the beginning of this article. Here are some tips to find the very best Samsung deals:

  • Don’t always go for the latest model - if you aren’t bothered about missing out on some of the latest features, older Samsung models will be much cheaper with better deals. 
  • Less storage - the more storage you want on your Samsung, the more it’ll cost. Don’t go for more storage than you realistically need. 
  • Refurbished - refurbished Samsung phones are just as good as new but much cheaper. 
  • Trade-in your old handset - some networks offer money off or waive the upfront fee if you trade-in your old smartphone. This is a great way to find the perfect deal. 
  • Look at smaller networks - Giffgaff, iD Mobile and Voxi can sometimes have brilliant Samsung deals. Don’t always look at the largest networks for the best deals.

What is the best Samsung phone to buy in 2021?

Image

Samsung’s most recent release was on the 14th January 2021. This was the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21. This range included the Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra 5G.

So, which Samsung phone should you consider buying in 2021? 

Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

Image

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus was a huge success in 2020 thanks to the impressive cameras with a 3x hybrid optical zoom. The massive 4,500mAh battery was also a welcome addition which gave the battery life a healthy boost. 

The Samsung Galaxy S20 was often hailed as the best smartphone of 2020. The Dynamic AMOLED Quad HD screen transformed Netflix binges and photography forever. One UI offered a seamless user experience with the S20 doing all the hard work for them.

The S20 was Samsung’s best phone on offer before the recent release of the S21. The good news is that you’ll be able to bag yourself a Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus for a fantastic price thanks to the newest release.

Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra 5G

Image

The Samsung Galaxy S21 has only just been released. It’s already one of the phones to watch in 2021 with a cinematic 8K resolution that allows you to take photos out of the videos you have shot. The camera also offers a 30x digital zoom with stabilisations. The S21 also boasts Samsung’s fastest chip and a huge battery. 

The S21 range has a much-improved processor in comparison to the S20 devices. 

Having said this, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is much cheaper than last year’s S20 at launch. This is to make it more affordable for its customers but some corners have been cut. For example, the glass back of the S20 has been replaced with a plastic one in the standard S21. 

The cameras in the S21 aren’t much different from the S20. The display is also a lower resolution. 

The Samsung Galaxy S20 and S21 are both fantastic phones. The S21 is only a slight improvement and so it might be worth bagging a deal on the S20 if prices drop. However, the S21 is $200 cheaper than the S20 at launch, making it a great deal for most.

When is the next Samsung phone coming out?

The latest Samsung Galaxy S21 range was released on the 14th January 2021 and won’t ship until the 29th January 2021. This is Samsung’s most recent release and so another launch isn’t yet planned.

What is the cheapest Samsung phone at the moment?

Image

The most expensive Samsung phones will always be the most recent releases and the ‘Plus’ or ‘Ultra’ versions. You can still find great deals on new phones but widening your search is a good idea if you’re on a budget. 

The Samsung Galaxy A range was designed for customers who are on a budget. The Samsung Galaxy A21s is one of the most impressive budget smartphones out there. The A21s has packed five cameras into its design with one being a huge 48MP. 

It also has a long-lasting battery and a stunning 6.5" Infinity-O Display. For just over £200 you can enjoy a fantastic smartphone with the Samsung Galaxy A21s.

Which Samsung phone should I buy?

Not sure which Samsung phone is best for you? With such a huge range of different smartphones to suit all budgets, Samsung has the perfect phone for everyone:

  • Samsung Galaxy S21 - the best smartphone for most people. The S21 hasn’t improved much on the popular S20 series but it is a huge $200 cheaper! This is a top-end smartphone that is the perfect all-rounder for the majority of users.
  • Samsung Galaxy A21s - best Samsung phone on a budget. The A21s offers a lot of bang for your buck with five cameras and tons of features. 
  • Samsung Galaxy M31 - perfect for long battery life lovers. The M31 has a battery that lasts around two days with a 15W charger which supports fast charging. If battery life is most important to you, this Samsung phone is the one. 
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 - for people who want a flagship smartphone for less. With the recent release of the Samsung Galaxy S21, we should see the S20 begin to drop in price. It offers most of the same features as the S21 and now is the perfect time to look for deals!
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra - for people who like big screens and powerful phones. The Note 20 Ultra is expensive but the screen is worth it for many with a beautiful display and an unbelievable camera zoom. If you like using a stylus on your phone and the display is important to you, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is perfect.
