Samsung Galaxy S8 Information

It can very much be argued that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best smartphone that has come out in 2017. Possibly the most beautiful phone in the market - technologically, it's breathtaking too.

It's sleek, sits beautifully in your palm and has 5.8 inches of colourful display that stretches from edge to edge - meaning you can comfortably navigate your handset with one hand.

Although the Galaxy S8 is almost the exact same height as the older S6, the curved sides make the S8 feel narrower and slimmer. As beautiful as it is on its own, it maybe worth buying a case for it as 83 per cent of it is glass, so very slippery and prone to cracking - however the back has Gorilla glass to resist damage.

The screen has a very high resolution, 2,960 x 1,440 pixel display, and makes text, images and video stand out, even when the sun is shining directly onto the screen.

A big change is that the physical home button and keys have completely gone. You now have an on-screen navigation and pressure sensitive home button built into the display itself.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is completely dust and waterproof like its predecessor so has an IP68 rating, which means you could, if you were so inclined, leave the handset in water for up to 30 minutes.

A nice surprise is that there is a 3.5, headphone jack at the base of the handset. Samsung also includes a pretty decent pair of AKG earphones in the box, which are much better than the standard, un-branded types that come with other phones.

There are three colours to choose from in the UK (although five in other places in the world, so they may become available in the future) - Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, Arctic Silver.

The handset has a Super AMOLED display, which means the colours are bright and vivid, even in direct sunlight. The Galaxy S8 screen resolution is WQHD+, 2960x1440 because the screen is so tall.

There are lots of new features that make the screen easier to use one-handed and the display is always on should you want it to be.

Samsung's latest octa-core processor has speeds of 2.3- and 1.7GHz and a Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. Samsung says that it is a 10 percent increase in CPU performance and a 20 percent gain on the GPU side.

The Galaxy S8 has 4GB of RAM and comes with 64GB of storage as standard. However, the phone has expandable storage so you can add up to 256GB via the Micro-SD card slot if you wanted more room for apps, pictures and videos etc.

Unsurprisingly for such a technologically advanced phone, S8 comes with all of the latest connectivity specs - including dual-band 11ac WI-Fi, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE Cat 16.

The camera on the S8 is outstanding. It's able to perform 'multi-frame image processing' where it takes three shots instead of one, and uses the extra pictures to do things like reduce blur and perfect other elements such as focus.

The Galaxy S8 has a 12Mp Dual Pixel with an impressive f/1/7 aperture and other features like optical image stabilisation (OIS) and 4K recording.

Under the bonnet, the phone comes with the latest version of Android - 7.0 Nougat. However, because Samsung has painted over it, you may not realise it though. The interface remains clean and easy to use but still has lots going on behind the scenes.

A big change, which wasn't ready when the phone was first launched, was Samsung's answer to Siri is Bixby. As well as voice command, you can access Bixy with a side button, so you can get to the feature quickly without having to unlock the device.

In regards to security, there are six ways to unlock the S8 - Fingerprint, Face recognition, Iris Scanner, Pattern, PIN and Smart Lock.

The battery on the Galaxy S8 is pretty decent, and can take 24 hours of heavy use without dying. It also comes with a fast charger function, which charges the phone from 0% to 37% in 30 mins - which is pretty impressive.

Compare Samsung Galaxy S8 deals

When deciding on a new mobile contract, there are a huge variety of plans to choose from. Whatever your priorities, from keeping costs down to making sure you have the right data and call allowances, we'll do the heavy lifting for you with our contracts comparison tool, making it easy to find the deal that's right for you.

How to find the best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals

A mobile phone contract includes two things: a phone, and a SIM with a monthly allowance of data, texts, and calls. You'll sign up for a long-term contract - usually for 24 months - and you could also pay an upfront charge.

The easiest way to find the best Galaxy S8 deal that's right for you is to compare all your options with our contracts comparison tool.

Use the filters to search by the various options:

  • Minutes, Texts and Data - Consider how you'll use your Galaxy S8 and try and estimate what allowances you'll need. Do you stream music and need a lot of data or are you a big chatter and need a high calls allowance?
  • Network - There are lots of networks to choose from, all of which have pros and cons. You'll get the widest coverage from EE, whereas Three is the only network to offer unlimited mobile data.
  • Cost - Think about what you consider a reasonable monthly cost, and how much you're prepared to pay over the length of a contract as a total cost. Can you afford a handset cost upfront or not?
  • Storage - Most handsets come with a variety of internal storage options.
  • Refurbished phones - If you're looking to reduce costs, some handsets are available as a refurbished phone.

Once you've considered all these options, you should be able to find a contract that's right for you. Click on the deal and we'll take you to the provider's website.

How to find cheap Samsung Galaxy S8 deals

If your biggest priority is keeping costs down, it's easy to find the cheapest Galaxy S8 plan.

Using our contracts comparison tool, sort your results by selecting Total Contract Cost to see the cheapest plans over the contract term. You can also view contracts by the Average Monthly Cost; and Handset Cost, to see if there is an upfront charge attached to a particular plan.

Bear in mind, if you want the absolute cheapest mobile contract, you will need to compromise on certain features and allowances. While there are some great cheap deals available, you may find such deals don't give you the calls, text and data allowances you need.

Also, to keep your costs low, consider opting for a refurbished handset and keep an eye out for special seasonal offers from selected networks.

What length contract do I need for a Samsung Galaxy S8?

Generally, the longer the mobile phone contract the cheaper it is. You'll find most contracts are 24 months in length, though there are selected plans that are both shorter and longer than this.

Tick the Contract Lengths options on our contracts comparison tool to see the various Galaxy S8 contract deals. You may find a longer contract significantly reduces your monthly and total costs.

Samsung Galaxy S8 deals with unlimited data

You can get unlimited data contracts on the Galaxy S8, however not many networks offer them. To search for this type of plan, select the Unlimited Data option in the contracts comparison tool.

If you can't find a plan with unlimited data, try contracts with 20GB and above. Most networks offer these plans and that amount of data should be ample for most people.

No upfront cost Samsung Galaxy S8 deals

Many plans require you pay an upfront handset cost when you first take out the contract. If you'd rather not pay this initial fee, you will end up paying a slightly higher monthly cost as the handset cost is spread over the length of the contract.

It is possible to get a Galaxy S8 deal without an upfront cost. To find these deals, select Free only from the Handset Cost filter on our contracts comparison tool.

Samsung Galaxy S8 deals with free gifts

Pay as you go Samsung Galaxy S8 deals

If you'd prefer a Pay As You Go (PAYG) deal with Galaxy S8, there are a number of networks to consider to find the best PAYG tariff that's right for you when topping up your phone. Some PAYG phones require you to purchase a top-up during purchase, in which case you'll be able to see the initial cost too.

Can I keep my mobile number?

Yes, it's easy to keep your number. Once you've decided on your new mobile contract, you'll need to ask your existing network for a PAC code (Porting Authorisation Code). It's usually three letters and six numbers long and won't cost you a thing. You now have 30 days to pass this code to your new network supplier, who will then port the number from your old SIM to your new SIM, which means you can keep using your existing mobile number.

Going SIM-only

If you decide you don't need a handset with your new mobile plan, then there are loads of SIM-only deals to consider. As they don't include the cost of a phone, they are often a lot cheaper than handset contract deals.
