The best Galaxy S8 Plus plans (August 2017)
Below we’ve rounded up three of the best deals over all the networks, depnding on if you’re a big saver, big on data, or just into big value. Further down the page we’ve gone through the major three providers (Telstra, Optus, and Vodafone) and picked out the best three plans on their networks, so you don’t have to sniff around.
Best overall value — Galaxy S8 Plus | 16GB data | Unlimited talk and texts | Music streaming that doesn’t count towards data | $100 pm
A huge amount of data and unlimited calls and text is incentive enough for this plan, but considering all of your streaming via popular services like Spotify and Google Play Music won’t count toward your data, this is a bit of a no-brainer. So grab the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus along with unlimited international calls and texts to select countries (US, UK, NZ, China, India and more) as well as $300 worth of international calls and text to use around the rest of the globe. Total cost over 24 months is $2,400
Best budget option — Galaxy S8 Plus | Unlimited talk and texts | 1GB data | Music streaming that doesn’t count towards data | $76 pm
While this plan is farely bare-bones and you won’t be getting any flashy extras, it’s excellent value considering you have unlimited national calls and texts as well as 1GB of data for only $76 a month. Not only that, but Woolworths Mobile uses the Telstra network, so you’re more likely to experience the great coverage that Telstra is known for. This is definitely the cheapest way to getting a new Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus without sacrificing on value. Total cost over 24 months is $1,824
Biggest data option — Galaxy S8 Plus | 100GB Data | Unlimited local, international, and roaming talk and text | $160 pm
Optus is absolutely dominating the field of oversized data plans at the moment. A ridiculous 100GB of included data almost triples the nearest competition for data-heavy plans. Not only that but you all calls and texts are unlimited, even international and roaming calls, and you’ll also get a sweet 1.5GB of included roaming data a month. Total cost over 24 months is $3,840
