Free Samsung tablet with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge deals on Sky Mobile

Tuesday, November 7th 2017 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Sky Mobile is giving away free Samsung tablets with selected Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

The phones you would have to choose from in order to be eligible for this deal are the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017).

These aren’t the very latest Samsung smartphones available – the S7 and S7 Edge were launched in March 2016 and the A5 came out in February this year – but they’re not exactly old and dusty either.

The tablet on offer is the Galaxy Tab A 7”, which was also released in March 2016 and runs on Android 5.1 (Lollipop). It’s the smaller of two Galaxy Tab As launched last year by Samsung but still comes with an 8GB memory and room for a microSD card that increases it by 256GB.

The cheapest way to get this deal is to go for the Galaxy A5 phone on a Swap24 plan, which lets you upgrade your phone every two years (bear in mind this is a 30-month contract and every time you ‘swap’ your phone for a new one, you start a new 30-month contract).

Anyway, the Galaxy A5 with free Galaxy Tab A is £15 a month for the handset and you’ll then have to choose your data package on top of that – Sky charges £5 a month for 500MB, £10 for 1GB, £15 for 5GB and £20 for 10GB.

All of these plans come with unlimited calls and texts, assuming you’re a Sky TV customer. If you don’t have Sky TV, unlimited texts and calls will cost you another £10 a month or you can choose to ‘pay as you use’ for 10p a minute and 10p a text.

If you’re going for a Swap24 deal, the Galaxy S7 is £20 a month and the S7 Edge is £23 a month, but remember that’s just the price of the handset – you’ll need to add data and potentially calls and texts on top of that.

If you’d rather go for a Swap12 plan, which is a two-year contract in which you can upgrade your phone after a year, you’ll be paying £34 a month for the A5, £40 a month for the S7 or £45 for the S7 Edge.

Again, these prices are just for the handsets so data, calls and texts will need to be added on. And with Swap12, as with Swap24, upgrading your phone after a year locks you into a new two-year contract.

If you’ve got your heart set on one of Samsung’s newer models – the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus or Note 8 – Sky is offering another freebie, the Samsung Gear VR.
