Don't make the mistake of thinking that just because the S6 is out now that the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn't worth considering. Far from it, this is probably the best time to get a great deal on a great phone from last year.
After all, you may not be worried about having an older model, but the phone shops are keen to move old stock out before they have to discount it to a ridiculous amount to get them out the door.
The S5 does cop some flack because it's not that much of an evolution of the Galaxy S line. Indeed the S6 is clearly a reaction to that, but what the S5 offers is amazing amounts of power with some really neat features to boot.
You get a smashing camera, sleek design with a removeable battery and microSD card, plus one of the best screens on any phone. There are also nice features like the fingerprint reader and heart rate monitor.
The UK's best Galaxy S5 deal:
Free phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, 1GB data for £27.50pm
The best deal we can currently find on the S5 is on the O2 network in the UK and offers a free phone, unlimited calls and texts along with a reasonable 1GB of data. That will cost you £27.50 direct from The Carphone Warehouse.
Now let's break down the best Samsung Galaxy S6 deals by network...
Best Galaxy S5 deals on EE:
Top deal: Free phone, unlimited calls and texts, 5GB of Data, £31.99pm
This deal is, honestly, red-hot. That amount of data is perfect even for pretty heavy data users, and you get all the calls and texts you want thrown in. The total cost of ownership over two years is pretty reasonable too.
Top deal: £19.99 phone, unlimited calls and texts, 3GB - £36pm
This is O2's strongest Samsung Galaxy S5 deal but it's nowhere near as attractive as that EE deal above because you pay for the phone, pay more per month AND get less data.
Deal 1: Free phone, 1000 minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB, £29pm
For less than £700 over two years you get the snappy little S5, along with 1GB of data, which should be enough for most people. There are also more than enough minutes included, and of course, unlimited texts.
Deal 1: £9.99 phone, 600 mins, unlimited texts, and data - £34pm
If you're going to sign up with Three and get an S5 deal, you might as well go with one of its unlimited data packages. Here you pay less than £10 for the handset and then £34 a month for unlimited data and texts with 600 mins.
