So the Samsung S9 Plus is arriving on Sunday. deal!* We've just bagged an exclusive Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deal that will make you instantly forget about your hankering for the new -screen mobile phone from the Korean tech giant.

Buy your new Note 8 from retailer Fonehouse, and get the colossal smartphone with 16GB of data on Vodafone for 43 per month and only 19 upfront. It works out as one of the very cheapest ways you own the Note 8 over the two year contract, and probably the best value deal round at the moment when you consider the amount of data you get.

Vodafone shot up across the board earlier this week, so the exclusive tariff for TechRadar readers really bucks the trend. You'll have to be quick, though – it will only be available until the end of Sunday March 4. You can read more about the deal below, and see just how well it compares to the rest in our dedicated Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals guide.

Our EXCLUSIVE Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deal

We're not yet 100% certain what the Galaxy S9 Plus price will be, but last week's price leak suggests that it will probably cost 829 for the SIM-free handset. Based on the last few Samsung Galaxy launches, we're confident in our Galaxy S9 Plus deals prediction that the new phablet will start at almost 1,100 in total over a two year contract – and that's for only 3GB of data each month.

That's why this Note 8 deal is so impressive. You'll save a substantial amount of money in the long term for the 6.3-inch phone and get stacks of data, too.

Can I trust Fonehouse?

You sure can. We wouldn't recommend deals from Fonehouse if you couldn't trust it.

Fonehouse has been providing the UK with mobile phone deals for over twenty years and offers contract plans on all the latest Samsung Galaxy handsets, Apple iPhones and other mobiles.
