  • Vodafone

In the UK, the Galaxy S7 is currently available to buy from EE, iD Mobile, O2, Three and Vodafone. Between them, the five mobile networks have the Galaxy S7 available on a choice of more than 80 different tariffs.

When choosing a price plan for your Galaxy S7, you should start by finding out how much data you need. Typically, we’d recommend the average smartphone user to choose a tariff with 2GB of data. Lighter users may only need 1GB per month whereas heavy data users may need 4GB or more. For more information, see our guide to mobile data allowances.

Once you’ve figured out how much data you require, use the guide below to find the cheapest available tariffs.

With 1GB of Data

At the very minimum, we recommend having at least 1GB of data per month on your Galaxy S7 tariff. A 1GB tariff could be suitable if you mainly use wi-fi (e.g. if you use it both when you’re at home and at work). A tariff with 1GB of data will not be suitable for streaming online music and video over the mobile internet connection.

O2

O2O2 is currently offering the Galaxy S7 on their O2 Refresh price plan. This allows you to upgrade to a new phone at any time (e.g. you could upgrade later to the iPhone 7 or the Galaxy S8).

With O2 Refresh, your monthly payment is split into two parts (e.g. your £41 monthly payment might break down as £20 for the handset and £21 for the airtime). You can upgrade to a new phone at any time by paying off the remainder of your Device Plan.

In general, when choosing a tariff from O2, it’s better to pay more upfront if you can. This will give you a lower ‘total cost of ownership’ over 24 months. On the O2 website, these tariffs are slightly hidden away (you’ll need to click the ‘Show more’ button when choosing your tariff).

A benefit of joining O2 is you’ll get access to O2 Priority. This gives you a number of exclusives such as a £1 lunch every Monday, a free coffee from Caffè Nero on most weeks, and exclusive access to entertainment tickets up to 48 hours before general release.

Vodafone has two types of Pay Monthly tariff: ‘Red’ and ‘Red Value’. Of the two, ‘Red’ is typically a bit cheaper. However, the ‘Red Value’ tariffs will come with 4G Entertainment (this is a free subscription to either Now TV, Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile TV).
