Samsung Galaxy S7 EdgeOn March 11th, Samsung is due to release the Galaxy S7 Edge. An even more premium version of their flagship Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S7 Edge has a larger 5.5-inch screen.

  • Vodafone

In the UK, the Galaxy S7 Edge is currently available to buy on six mobile networks: EE, iD Mobile, O2, Three, Virgin Media and Vodafone. Between them, the six mobile networks have the Galaxy S7 Edge available on a choice of more than 90 different tariffs.

When choosing a price plan for your Galaxy S7 Edge, you should start by deciding how much data you’ll require. 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

As a minimum, we would recommend having at least 1GB of data per month with your Galaxy S7 Edge. A 1GB tariff could be suitable if you mainly use wi-fi (e.g. if you use wi-fi both at home and at work). A tariff with 1GB of mobile data will not be suitable for streaming online music and video on-the-go.

O2

O2O2 is offering the Galaxy S7 Edge on their O2 Refresh price plan. This will allow you to easily upgrade to a new phone at any time during your contract.

With O2 Refresh, your monthly payment is split into two separate parts (e.g. your £46 monthly payment might break down as £25/month for the handset and £21/month for the airtime). You can upgrade to a new phone at any time by paying off the remainder of your Device Plan.

When choosing a tariff from O2, it’s better to pay as much as you can upfront. 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 will give 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.

Virgin Media

Virgin Media

On Virgin Media, you can buy the Galaxy S7 Edge on a Freestyle contract.

With Freestyle, there are no upfront costs for the Galaxy S7 Edge. You also get lots of flexibility when it comes to changing your handset or changing your tariff. Unlike standard contracts, your monthly bill is split into two separate parts: one part for your handset and another part for your airtime. You can change your handset at any time by paying off the remainder of your phone plan. You can also change your airtime plan whenever you like.

It’s worth noting two key limitations. Firstly, Virgin Media only provides 2G and 3G coverage (it’s the only mobile network listed on this page where you won’t have access to 4G). Secondly, tethering also isn’t permitted when using Virgin Media.

Vodafone

Vodafone

Overall, for the majority of readers, Vodafone is our recommended network for buying the Galaxy S7 Edge. This is because they tend to offer the lowest prices: you’ll also have access to high-speed 4G, tethering and other features.

When choosing your price plan on the Vodafone website, it’s worth being aware of the two different types of tariff. Vodafone Red is the basic 4G tariff where you’ll see slightly lower prices than on Red Value. In contrast, you’ll pay more for a Red Value tariff but you’ll get 4G Entertainment included in the price (this is a free subscription to either Now TV, Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile TV). Depending on which entertainment pack you choose to take, 4G Entertainment is worth up to £9.99/month. Customers with a Red Value plan also get EuroTraveller Plus included in the price.

About the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Galaxy S7 Edge - Face DownThe Galaxy S7 Edge is an upgraded version of Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7. With a larger 5.5-inch screen, it’s similar in size to Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus (the standard Galaxy S6 only has a 5.1-inch screen). With the S7 Edge, the screen also curves away on both edges of the handset. This gives it a highly-premium ‘infinity pool’ design.

Like the normal Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S7 Edge is also due to be released in the UK on March 11th. It has a 12 megapixel Dual Pixel camera, micro-SD support and IP68 waterproof protection. It also runs on the latest version of Google’s smartphone operating system: Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Galaxy S7 Edge compares as follows to the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s Plus:

    Hi Ken, thanks for a very informative website and updates through email.

    I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge through buymobiles.net on a 24 month contract with no upfront charge of the phone including unlimited texts/minutes 4GB data with EE 4GEE plan for £35.99 a month which I thought was pretty good.

    The phone was also unlocked.

    Just had a look at their website again just now and their offering 3 network with the same type of plan for £34.00 month.
