Carphone Warehouse has put the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone (or phablet as one would put it) for a mere £20 per month on a two year contract with Three with an upfront fee of £99.
The total cost of ownership is £579, which is not that expensive given the cost of the SIM free version of the Note 2 and translates into an effective monthly fee of just over £24, which is not bad for such a device.
As for the package, it includes 500 minutes, 5000 texts and, surprise, surprise, unlimited data (albeit without tethering). The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with a quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, with 2GB of RAM, a 5.5in 1,280 x 720 pixel Super AMOLED HD display, 16GB onboard storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, TouchWiz UI and some impressive functionality like the S Pen Stylus.
While there are rumours that Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy Note 3 fairly soon, a number of alternatives have emerged lately like the soon-to-be-released Galaxy Mega and the cheaper-and-bigger Huawei Ascend Mate. You can read our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone here.
