The Samsung Galaxy S3 hits stores tomorrow. It’s easily one of the most eagerly anticipated phones of the last thousand years, if not longer, but if you’re going to pick one up, you’ll want to know that you’re doing so at its cheapest. Fret not: we’ve got the best Samsung Galaxy S3 UK prices for you right here. Let us take you by the hand and run you through the cheapest SIM-free, PAYG and pay monthly deals around.

You want that Galaxy S3, don’t you? You want its gorgeous 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, quad-core Exynos processor and 8-megapixel camera. You want it all, but you want it cheap. We get it, don’t worry. Here’s what you need to know:

Samsung Galaxy S3: SIM-Free price

There’s not much wiggle-room on price anywhere with the Galaxy S3: most retailers have it pegged at around the same price. The good news is, though, that that price is less than £500, albeit only slightly.

See the sexier Galaxy S3 that you can’t buy

The cheapest we’ve seen is either at Amazon or Carphone Warehouse, who’ll shift you one for £499.95 – which shaves just 4p off the price touted at Clove and a further £19 off of Expansys’ £519.99, even though that price will also get you a 16GB Micro SD card and a car charger, both of which could prove useful.

Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S3 isn’t available with any PAYG deals, although buying SIM-free and ordering a free PAYG SIM from any of the main networks is the same sort of thing. If that’s the route you’re going, O2’s Simplicity PAYG SIM is a winner: it’s a sort of half-way house between a pay monthly deal and a PAYG system, but if you top up £16.50 per month O2 will furnish you with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.

Samsung Galaxy S3: Best tariffs

The thing with tariffs is that it’s hard to say which is ‘best’. Sure, one may be cheaper than the next, but that might get you dramatically less in terms of minutes, calls or data. Let’s assume, though, that you’re after a 24 month contract, because that’s how to instantly save a bucket load of cash.

With that as a starting point, these are best Samsung Galaxy S3 UK prices we can see:

Vodafone will give you the Galaxy S3 for free, with a £31 monthly line rental. From Carphone Warehouse this’ll get you 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. That same tariff cost from Phones 4u will proffer 600 minutes, 3000 texts and 500MB of data.

Why should you buy a Galaxy s3?

Orange will also give you the Galaxy S3 for free on a £31 deal at Phones 4u, with its Panther 31 contract gifting you 400 minutes, 3000 texts and 750MB or data.

Go a few quid more on line rental and you can get yourself a decent deal with Three (either direct or through the Carphone Warehouse): a free Galaxy S3, 2000 minutes, 5000 texts and unlimited data for £34 per month on the One tariff.

If you want to pay less on a monthly basis, you could do a lot worse than O2, who’ll sell you a 24 month contract of £21.50 per month with 20 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data, as long as you don’t mind paying £249.99 for the phone.

    The £15 Pay as you go from 3 is much better value than O2. 3000 texts, 300 minutes and true unlimited DATA. Much better for a smartphone.

    Three does better SIM only plans than O2. For £15 you get 300 mins, 3000 texts and unlimited data. Or £12 for the same thing but with 1GB data. The data is far more useful than unlimited texts.

    What about GiffGaff?! For £10/month you get unlimited texts and data plus 250 minutes. They use the O2 network so coverage isn’t a problem.
