Phones4U has introduced a special Samsung Galaxy S II deal that leads us to believe the smartphone may become a mainstream staple device sooner than its predecessor, the Galaxy S.
Available on the T-Mobile Data 300 tariff, the phone costs only £20.43 per month with an upfront cost of merely £99, giving you a total cost of ownership of £589.32 or £24.56 monthly.
You get 300 minutes, 300 texts and unlimited data allowance as part of the flexible booster that's changeable every month.
The handset was introduced at the beginning of the year and has proved to be a roaring success with more than three million units preordered already worldwide.
The phone uses a 1.2GHz dual core Samsung Exynos 4210 SoC with an improved GPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard memory, an eight-megapixel camera with LED flash with a two-megapixel front facing one, a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive Super AMOLED Plus display, Wi-Fi, Android OS 2.3 and more.
We're not sure whether this one comes with a near field communication feature but it does come with a microSD card reader, GPS, Bluetooth, full HD video recording and Samsung's very own 3D TouchWiz user interface. Other online retailers have yet to cut their price; Carphone Warehouse for example has a slightly similar deal with a bigger text package for £30 per month and an upfront fee of £100.
