Virgin Mobile offers its lowest ever price for the Samsung Galaxy S8

Monday, February 5th 2018 by Oprah Flash

Virgin Mobile is offering what it says is the lowest monthly price for a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ handset on contract.

It’s promoting a whopping £108 saving until 21 February, plus you’ll also get a pair of tickets from a range of concerts worth up to £140.

You could get your hands on a 64GB Samsung Galaxy S8 from just £23 a month with no upfront cost.

The £23 a month package comes on a 36-month contract and offers 300 minutes plus 1.2GB of data.

This is the usual price for 300MB of data so this is a decent deal for a snazzy handset if you don’t do much downloading or many calls.

Alternatively, for £26 a month you can get 1,500 minutes and unlimited texts with 4GB of data. This is usually the price for 1GB.

Those with bigger data needs can pay £32 a month for 40GB, the usual price for 20GB, plus you will get 5,000 minutes.

£43 a month for Samsung Galaxy S8 with 40GB of data

If you wanted a shorter contract, there is a 24-month deal, costing £34 a month for 300 minutes and 1.2GB of data, £37 for 4GB and 1,500 minutes or £43 for 5,000 minutes and 40GB.

The bigger S8+ starts at £26 a month for the 1.2GB deal on a 36-month contract. The 4GB plan costs £29 a month or you will need to pay £35 for the 40GB offer.

You would pay £38.50 a month on the 1.2GB tariff with a 24-month term, £41.50 for 4GB or £47.50 on the 40GB deal.

All Virgin Mobile deals come with unlimited texts and will let you rollover unused data. You will also get data-free messaging on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Twitter.

These are, for now, Samsung’s flagship handsets. The S9 is due for release later this month.

The 5.8-inch S8 or 6.2-inch S8+ offer a built-in iris scanner, an 8-megapixel camera at the from and 12 megapixels at the back plus a dust and water-resistant design. The edge-to-edge screen also makes it perfect for gamers.

Once you have signed up for a deal you can also browse and pick up a pair of concert event tickets from Samsung at venues across the UK. The tickets must be selected by 4 March once your deal is activated.

These are attractive deals, but you will be tied into either a 24-month or 36-month contract so you need to consider if you will be as happy with your handset in up to three years, especially with the S9 coming around the corner.

These are good offers on the low-data deals, but you can save a bit more with other providers if you need more data.

Tesco Mobile works out slightly cheaper for a 4GB deal and gives you extra minutes if you take a slightly shorter 30-month contract. The network offers 1,000 minutes and 5,000 texts with nothing to pay upfront for £35.75 a month.

If you were willing to pay some money upfront, iD Mobile is offering a 64GB S8 with 600 minutes and 5,000 texts with 4GB of data for £29.99, plus £229.99 upfront. This is on a 24-month contract.
