    Estimated tariff for Samsung S8 Plus 10th Mar 17 at 9:42 PM
    My old Samsung S5 is due for renewal this month.

    I covet the Samsung S8 Plus but I know it will be a premium model at a premium price but was curious as to what the monthly tariff is likely to be.

    I have heard some reports it will be £ 45 a month +. Is it likely to be more than that ?

    It'll probably be £50+ at launch, look at iPhone 7 Plus tariffs, I'd expect to see similar for the s8 Plus, at least in the first months after launch.

    Though it's pretty much guaranteed to be very expensive (the sim free price is rumoured to be €899) and it will be another month after that before it's actually available...

    And once the handset is announced/released to market it might be worth investigating third party retailers i.e. mobiles.co.uk as opposed to dealing directly with the network(s) as they sometimes offer the handsets cheaper and/or on lower tariffs/upfront costs.
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.

    Also consider buying out right on a credit card balance transfer and then get a SIM only deal to suit your needs.

    Work on £800 - upfront payment, divide by number of months of contract and to that amount add whatever the SIM only monthly price is for the minute/text/call package you want.

    Following! Have a Note 4 and was gutted about the Note 7, but going on holiday the day before the announcement and really fancy a new toy. Conundrum!
