Cheap Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deal needed

Options
Hi all!

So i have decided to pack the contract phone game in and go PAYG but want a nice phone. Was looking at the S7 edge but not keen on paying over £550 for it. Does anyone know any voucher codes/deals etc. where i can purchase one from a reputable retailer ideally somewhere below the 500 mark?

Cheers,
Steve

    You can get them from around £450 but they are imports.. So "yer pays yer money and takes yer chance". I did think of buying one but chickened out. It's still a lot of money if it goes wrong!

    Before buying any phone I suggest you check out how often important security updates are pushed out, currently the only android ones that I am aware of that do timely updates are Motorola and nexus.

    If your going to spend several hundred pounds on a phone I think it's something you should consider.

    I opted for the Nexus 6p no crapware on it like the Samsung.

    OP (or anyone else), just wondering if you managed to find a good deal on the S7 Edge as I am also looking for one? Thanks.

    I've got an S7 Edge after avoiding Samsung and their crapware, including Touchwiz, for a long time, but it's not an issue any more - On first launch, you can choose between Touchwiz and the Google launcher, and whilst there are rubbish apps, they're easily avoided and don't hog a lot of space.
