The top 5 best Galaxy S9 deals on contract:

Samsung Galaxy S9 | O2 | £190 upfront | 12GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £32pm
If you simply want to pay as little as possible on your Galaxy S9 deal - and we can't say we blame you - then this the one you need. You can get it for less than £30 per month with a bigger upfront spend, but ideally you wouldn't pay more than £200 to sign up so this is the deal we'd recommend. It's still a mere £32 per month and you get a very solid 12GB of data to play with. Bargain. Total cost over 24 months is £958

This Vodafone tariff has easily wormed its way into our affection, thanks to the relatively low total two year cost for a delightful 16GB of data. Sub-£40 monthly bills are a joy to see on such a new flagship phone where the upfront cost is less than £100 as well. Really great value on the red network, this one. Total cost over 24 months is £1025.90

How much does the unlocked Galaxy S9 SIM-free cost?

We've actually known this for a while, thanks to a price leak a week or so before the big Galaxy S9 reveal. If you want to buy this new phone unlocked then you'll need to part with £739. Several retailers are stocking it, and if you check out our dedicated comparison table below, you can see the best places to get it from (or go straight through to the key retailers below).

Over the last year, the most cost-effective way of purchasing a newly launched phone has been to buy it outright and then combine it with a cheap SIM only deal. You can get 4GB for £10pm at the moment, for example. Combine it for 24 months with the £739 purchase price and the total (£979) shaves some cash off what you'll get from contract deals - but only just.

Samsung Galaxy S9 review

Incremental upgrade with one hell of a camera

Screen size: 5.8-inches | Resolution: QHD+ | Rear camera: 12MP | Weight: 163g | OS: Android 8 Oreo | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 400GB | Battery: 3000mAh

Incredible camera
Convenient finger scanner
Improvement on the astonishing S8...
...but not by much
Augmented reality not fully realised

So it's finally here, and our general impressions are predictably positive. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is really all about the camera, with most of the unveiling ceremony concentrating on the improvements that have been made to the front and rear snappers. It comes out of the box running off Android's latest Oreo operating system and a new chipset should make your using experience as swift as possible. We only wish it improved on the Galaxy S8 more...
