3 UK Drops Cost Of Samsung Android Smartphone To £11.38 Per Month

3 UK has quietly reduced the price of its Samsung Galaxy i5700 Spica monthly contract to a mere £11.38 per month although the deal is not even available from their website.

Instead, you have to go to one of the many mobile phone shops online to access the deal (in this case buymobilephones.net); the drop makes of 3 UK's offer the cheapest Android monthly contract deal on the market by far.

The deal ties you with 3 UK for two years and you get up to 300 minutes or texts, 500MB internet quota, 5000 3-to-3 minutes, free Skype-to-Skype calls and Windows Live Messenger for £12 per month with an instant £15 cashback.

The phone itself is not half bad and is way better than the ZTE Racer we tested recently, from 3 UK as well. It packs a 800MHz processor and has a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, built in accelerometer, a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, built in GPS, Google Maps, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Android OS 2.1 and a microSD card reader.

Note though that the phone is a refurbished clearance as well which explains why it carries such a huge discount. It comes with a 12 month warranty and is guaranteed to be free from blemishes.
