Latest Samsung Galaxy S8 Best Deals in The USA

The latest smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8 is the phone that should be one of the best you look at when you deciding to buy a new phone. The big, bezel-less display is really iconic and beautiful, and the screen quality is excellent. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the backside of this phone is a poor decision from Samsung, as well as the iris scanner or the facial recognition is not working nearly well enough to be a real consideration. However, these are not the deal breakers, and the improvised battery life and the tweaked camera will be among of the best you will find on a top of this flagship. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the expensive phones, we have no doubts about that – but it is the one that we consider to well worth for the investing.

Samsung Galaxy S8 price

$30 to $31.25 on US carriers, $724.99 SIM-free
Between £30-40 for free on contract, £639 SIM-free
AU$1,199 to purchase the S8 outright, with plans from AU$65/month

The Samsung Galaxy S8 price is not affordable on the market by any angle of the imagination, in fact, it is one of the most expensive phones. You are really paying for that screen.

In the UK, the contract price is already dropping down rapidly though out, with some deals which are offering the phone for £30 per month with nothing to pay extra upfront – its really a very good deal.

Or, you can buy it SIM-free for a whopping for just £639.

In the USA you are going to pay between $30 to $31.25 per month for this phone with a 24-month contract through American carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Their contract pricing is not much cheap.

For $724.99, there is an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 in the USA. If you want to go SIM-free right away or want any other unlocked color you like, you will have to pay for one of the carriers first.

The slightly good news is that you are at least getting a 64GB memory version of this phone in all countries the presence of a dedicated microSD slot means Samsung will not be launching multiple variants of the phones in different areas, instead of offering a decent amount of storage space as standard and giving users the option to add memory in that if they wish so.
