Samsung Galaxy Note contract price drops under £20 again

You can grab the Galaxy Note for as little as £19.50 per month on a two-year contract (it's normally £21 per month, but factor in the £30 automatic cashback over the two years and you break the £20 barrier).

The total cost works out at £468 over the two years and it's the cheapest contract we could find for this impressive phablet.

The deal is available from Mobiles.co.uk, a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse, on a T-Mobile contract. Three options are on offer: 1.5GB data, 50 minutes and 250 texts; 750MB data, 100 minutes and unlimited texts; or 250MB data, 300 minutes and unlimited texts. Note that T-Mobile doesn't charge extra for browsing and emailing traffic but will throttle video, P2P and VoIP traffic once the data limit is reached.

The smartphone comes with a 5.3in Super AMOLED display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution - still the highest resolution on any smartphone on the market (the Galaxy Note 2 only manages 1,280 x 720 pixels).

Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the OS of choice and inside there's a dual-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.4GHz, alongside 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, and a microSD card slot. An 8-megapixel camera with full HD video recording, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera are present along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and a capacitive stylus.
