If you’ve been holding off buying a Samsung Galaxy S20 then now could be a good time to make the switch. With this device now a few months old, some retailers are beginning to offer some tempting deals on this latest flagship.
Just last week we reported that you could now get the 5G version of the S20 for the same price as the 4G model and now there’s a new discount which includes totally unlimited data at a cost which won’t break the bank.
This latest promotion comes via Mobiles.co.uk with the online retailer giving Samsung fans the chance to pop a Galaxy S20 in their pocket for as little as £34 per month with totally unlimited 5G data, calls and texts all included.
That sounds pretty good but before you rush to hit the order button it’s worth knowing more about this contract. Firstly there’s a pretty hefty £299 upfront fee to pay but that’s not all.
Although you get totally unlimited 5G data with this deal the contract is based Vodafone’s basic package which caps download speeds to just 2Mbps.
So although you can spend all day online without fear of extra charges, at that rate it would take over four hours to download a full HD and 2Mbps will even struggle to stream Netflix with the service recommending at least 5Mbps for a stutter-free experience.
5G is capable of offering downloads at over 300Mbps and Vodafone does offer this for those prepared to pay a bit extra.
However, this current S20 Unlimited 5G deal doesn’t allow those superfast speeds to be accessed which means you’ll have a very expensive but super slow phone in your pocket.
In fact, you’d be better off getting a standard 4G contract which will offer downloads at around 40Mbps.
If these deals have got you thinking then here’s a quick reminder of what is included on the Galaxy S20 and S20+. Both of these devices now feature a quad rear camera with a wide-angle lens and 30X Super Zoom.
There’s also a fast octa-core processor, embedded fingerprint scanner under the screen and wireless charging. If you opt for the S20+ you’ll get a bigger 6.7-inch screen and larger 4,500mAh battery. Meanwhile, the standard S20 includes a 6.2-inch display and 4,000mAh battery.
If you want the ultimate spec sheet then the S20 Ultra could be the device you’re looking for with this phone getting a 100X Space Zoom, huge 6.9-inch screen and more battery power. Want to know more about this mega phone? you can read our full Galaxy S20 Ultra review here.
