Deal: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from £33 per month

Head over to mobilephonesdirect if you want to grab the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on what looks like a bargain. The phablet which was released at IFA earlier this month, is certainly one of the contenders for the title of phablet of the year.

It is available for £33 per month on a two year contract with Vodafone. That's a total cost of ownership of £792, which compares very positively with the £610 the device costs on SIM Free. The Vodafone tariff includes 600 minutes, unlimited texts, 500MB mobile internet and 2GB BT Openzone Wi-Fi.

The phone runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a 13-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5.7in Super AMOLED HD full HD display, 4G functionality (with download speeds of up to 100Mbps), a 3,200mAh battery plus that superb S-Pen.

The new Galaxy Note is thinner, lighter and much more powerful than the Galaxy Note 2 that it replaces but it will have a hard time against the likes of the Acer Liquid S2, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the soon-to-be announced Nokia Lumia 1520.
