Samsung Galaxy S8 not the phone for you?
How to pick the right Samsung Galaxy S8 deal for you
Think about what you’re willing to pay upfront
Typically, the more you spend upfront, the less you’ll pay each month for your contract. Not everyone can afford to part with a lot of cash at the beginning, however, so getting a phone on contract can help you spread the cost. Consider your priority when balancing up different contracts and calculate the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the life of the contract. To do this, just multiply the monthly cost by the contract length, then add the upfront cost if there is one.

Again, you might find yourself paying a little more by the end of the contract if you want to pay less upfront, but that’s the compromise you might want to make.
Work out how much data you need
For most people, data is going to be the biggest priority above minutes and texts when it comes to picking the right contract. Nowadays, most contracts will give you more minutes and texts than you’ll ever need, if not just giving you an unlimited amount.
Your data allowance will decide how much you’re able to stream, such as watching Netflix or YouTube, or streaming music from Spotify. You’ll also need to have data to browse the internet over 4G, so you don’t want to be running out. For only light users, 4GB will be the minimum you’ll want just to ensure you never run out.
Heavier users will be looking at double digit data allowances. You can also create a mobile hotspot from your phone to let you tether your mobile data to a secondary device, such as a tablet or phone, letting you share your internet. Some networks will limit how much data can be shared this way.
