Samsung Galaxy S8

After the flawed Note 7, Samsung came roaring back with the flagship Galaxy S8. Showing off a large, sharp bezel-free display with one of the best cameras around, this speedy and powerful phone is a real looker.

As new Samsung Galaxy models are released, prices will gradually come down on older models as people look to upgrade their phones - particularly for refurbished mobile contracts.

A refurbished phone is an unwanted handset that has been returned to a mobile supplier or network for whatever reason - possibly due to a fault or the owner simply changed their mind.

If it’s refurbished, it means the phone has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.

Search our deals table of mobile networks and retailers to find a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 deal.

Use the filters to find the right tariff of minutes, texts and data and storage options. You can also vary the balance between your monthly fee and any upfront cost.

What is the Samsung Galaxy S8 like?

On first release the Samsung Galaxy S8 was the flagship phone to own. Its sleek 5.8-inch screen stretching from curved edge to curved edge put a real marker down for the look and feel of future smartphones.

Fast and powerful, the S8 is light and easy to handle with a noticeably improved camera function over the S7 - whether you’re taking landscape or portrait shots, you’ll notice real versatility.

Some minor grumbles about the rear fingerprint scanner and Bixby virtual assistant aside, Samsung really raised the bar with the S8. With the release of further Galaxy handsets, you should see some great price reductions on this model - particularly on refurbished contracts.

What are the best refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 deals?

The best refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 deals will depend on your needs and how you use your phone.

You can filter by:

  • Storage - The Samsung Galaxy S8 is available with 64GB of internal storage for your apps, files and pics, which is expandable via microSD card.
  • Colour - You can get this model in Midnight Black or Orchid Grey.
  • Monthly allowance - There's plenty of choice here over what you can get. Tariffs range from a minimal allowance up to unlimited everything. Pick a small one if you don't use your phone much, or lots of data if you like to browse and stream all day - though most of us are satisfied with 2GB-5GB of data.
  • Budget - Think about how much you're willing to spend on your mobile bill each month, and how much you can spend upfront today.
  • Network - Not all phones are available as refurbished handsets but you should still compare mobile networks. Some also have special offers for existing customers.

Once you've selected all the things that are important to you, you can sort the available deals by cost to see the cheapest, by data allowance to see the most generous, or just take a look at our top picks.

What are the cheapest refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 deals?

Signing up for a refurbished mobile phone contract is generally cheaper than a new handset contract - particularly a Samsung contract.

Each time a new Samsung Galaxy model is released, the older Samsung models - such as the S8 - come down in price. As new Galaxy handsets are so expensive, choosing a refurbished contract on an older model is an excellent way to save money.

Search our deals table to see what’s on offer from different mobile networks, and consider the following:

  • Work out the number of minutes and texts you will need each month
  • Think about your data use - data-hungry apps and watching movies on the go means you’ll need a decent data allowance
  • Compare refurbished contracts by upfront cost against monthly fee
  • Budget networks will often offer cheaper refurbished Samsung contracts - providers such as iD Mobile and giffgaff
  • Pick a deal through a reseller, such as Affordablemobiles.co.uk - that is, a company that buys handsets and SIMs in bulk and passes the savings onto you.
