Samsung Galaxy S4 prices
Those of you who like flittering between networks with cheaper monthly contracts might want to pick up a Galaxy S4 SIM-free. The cheapest price we’ve currently found online is £550 at digitalphone.co.uk. That’s still a pretty big punch for most wallets to take in one go though, so here are a few deals to get you started.
Samung Galaxy S4 at Phones 4u
Phones 4u’s best deal is a two year T-Mobile contract for £36 a month which includes 2,000 minutes, unlimited texts and, we’re happy to report, a cap-free (unlimited) data plan. Not only that, but the Galaxy S4 handset itself is free.
The cheapest 4G Samsung Galaxy S4 deal from Phones 4u is a two year EE contract for £31 a month with unlimited calls and texts. A measly 500MB of data and the £200 handset price might put you off though.
If you don’t want to hand over any cash for the Galaxy S4 on a 4G EE contract then you’re looking at £41 a month for two years, which comes with a more generous 1GB of data.
Samung Galaxy S4 at Carphone Warehouse
T-Mobile’s unlimited everything two-year plan is also available at the Carphone Warehouse and again, you won’t have to pay for the Galaxy S4 itself. It is £41 per month though, which is £120 more over the course of two years compared to getting it from Phones 4u. Pre-order before April 27th, though, and you’ll get an accessory bundle (flip case, car charger, screen protector and 32GB microSD) worth £80.
Those of you looking for the cheapest monthly 4G option from the Carphone Warehouse are looking at £130 for the handset and £36 a month for two years for unlimited calls, texts and 750MB of data.
£46 a month for two years with EE will net you 3GB of data a month with unlimited calls and texts and you won’t have to pay anything for the Galaxy S4 itself.
