iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy S II For £328

Exploiting two well known O2-only "loopholes", you should be able to cut down the cost of a contract with the Samsung Galaxy S2 handset to as little as £328.

The contract, called the O2 100 Data, via Dialaphone, is for two years with 100 minutes, 500 texts, 500MB mobile internet data allowance and unlimited Wi-Fi.

There's an upfront fee of £10 and the line rental costs £21.50 per month. So the total cost of ownership is £526.

But if you rescind the data allowance bolt-on (which also removes the Wi-Fi) after the first month, you save £6 per month or £138 for the rest of the contract. Then after the 12th month, downgrade to the next cheapest package, saving you another £5 per month or £60 for the last 12 months.

In total, that's a £290 saving for the contract term which brings the cost of the package to a low £328.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is still a fantastically capable handset. It has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with a WVGA resolution, a dual core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Samsung Game and Music hub, TouchWiz user interface, an eight megapixel camera and more.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
