Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini now comes with free Galaxy Tab 2 tablet

If the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone tickles your fancy, then you might want to consider an offer from Phones4U which gives a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 when you purchase the smaller version of the S4 Mini on selected 4GEE tariffs.

The cheapest contract on which it is available is a £36 with unlimited data and unlimited texts; that's a total cost of ownership of £864. You also get the tablet, which is worth around £130 and 750MB data allowance, delivered to you at 4G speeds. That's possibly worth the upgrade from the £31 which doesn't come with the tablet and with a third less data.

Interestingly, you pay an additional £5 per month to get an extra 250MB data per month on a slightly dearer offer. In other words, that's £20 per GB, which is a tad too expensive for our tastes.

The Galaxy S4 mini is roughly equivalent to the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket that was launched back in 2011, with only minor improvements. Many of its features (a qHD display, a dual-core system-on-chip, an 8-megapixel camera) are decidedly mainstream/borderline entry level.
