Deal: Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone down to £17 a month

Price comparison website Uswitch partnered with Mobiles.co.uk, a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse, to deliver a deal on O2 that includes the Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB smartphone (in white) with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data for £17 per month on a two year contract with an upfront fee of £15. That's a total cost of ownership of £423, which is more than decent given that the phone now costs around £285 SIM Free.

The O2 deal also includes O2 Priority Moments and O2 Rewards loyalty schemes. As for the Galaxy S3, although it is now no longer the flagship smartphone at Samsung, it remains a very decent device that still have a couple of years left as a mainstream handset.

The S3 runs on a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz. There's 16GB onboard storage, 1GB of RAM, a 4.8in display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing 1.9-megapixel one, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz user interface and a microSD card slot.
