Best Samsung Galaxy J3 deals with O2

Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 (Black) | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 15GB data | £35 per month O2 has some great J3 deals this month, and this 15GB contract makes mid-level deals from other networks look like child’s play. Free upfront, plenty of data, minutes and texts up to your eyeballs, and still just £35 a month. That’s a pretty perfect sweep in our opinion.

Samsung Galaxy J3 2016 (Black) | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 1GB data | £23 per month EE still wins this month when it comes to the very basic data deals, but this Vodafone deals comes a close second.
