Cheapest Samsung Galaxy S3 contract in the UK costs £21

For one week only, you can get the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone for as little as £21 per month on a two year contract on Vodafone’s Your Plan 21.

That’s a total cost of ownership of £504 which is around a quarter more than the SIM free version of the handset and to sweeten the deal, Phones4U even bundled a £20 Google Play voucher.

The plan includes 100 minutes, 100MB data, 1GB Wi-Fi for three months and unlimited texts. Most importantly, compared to other similar offers, this one doesn’t require an upfront fee.

Key features of the Samsung Galaxy S3 include an 8-megapixel rear camera, a quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 4.8in Super AMOLED Corning Gorilla Glass 2 display, a microSD card slot and a few Samsung features like S Voice, S Beam or Smart Stay.

We expect the Samsung Galaxy S4 to be launched fairly soon, possibly as early as next month, shortly after the end of MWC. The phone will face competitors such as the HTC One, the LG Optimus G Pro and the Sony Xperia Z.
