iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy S2 On £17 Contract

Those looking for a well balanced, good all rounder contract who don't mind paying an upfront cost, might consider this deal from Three Mobile via AffordableMobiles which includes a Samsung Galaxy S II handset.

The deal which is called Text 500 and lasts for 24 months, includes 500 minutes, 5000 texts and 1GB data all for a mere £17 a month and a total cost of ownership of £518 or just over £21.50 per month (considering the £110 upfront cost).

The device comes with a dual core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive Super AMOLED display, an eight megapixel camera with a front facing one, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth, a thickness of only 9mm, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 16GB onboard storage and Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface.

Those looking to buy the cheapest Samsung Galaxy Tab might have a look at this method which uses two separate - albeit convoluted - techniques to bring the price of the handset to less than £350.

The cheapest Galaxy S II contract without an upfront fee remains Tesco's £20.42 per month deal from T-Mobile which includes 300 minutes, 300 texts, 500MB data, unlimited internet browsing and (until the end of the year) £20 worth of free apps.

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.
