Galaxy S10 cut to ‘lowest ever’ price but this Samsung deal does come with a catch

The Galaxy S10 is definitely a device that’s worthy of a place in your pocket. This 2019 Samsung flagship arrives with a triple rear camera, fast processor, stunning AMOLED display and a technology called PowerShare which can be used to refill other devices wirelessly.

All of these features have made it a contender for smartphone of the year but, with the S10 now almost a year old, it could soon be superseded by the all-new Galaxy S11.

Rumours suggest that the new S11 will be released in February at an event in San Francisco and with a launch looking imminent prices for the current S10 are plummeting.

There have already been numerous deals on this phone but the latest sale from Virgin Media is offering the larger S10+ at the firm's lowest ever price.

In fact, you can pick up this 6.4-inch monster for just £25 per month with no upfront cost. That sounds like a bit of bargain especially as this bigger version of the S10 would usually set you back a whopping £899 SIM-free.


However, although this is a good monthly price from Virgin Media fans should be aware of a couple of important things.

Firstly, that £25 per price only includes 1GB of data which isn’t much – especially if you want to stream and watch content on the move.

You can boost this 100GB of data which is certainly worth considering if you think you are a data-heavy user although it will cost £4 extra for the privilege.

The other big caveat of this deal is the fact you’ll be forced to sign up to a 36-month contract which means you need to happy that you won’t want to change or upgrade this phone over the next three years.

If the 1GB of data and three-year deal sound OK then this is a pretty good deal as the total you’ll pay over the term of the contract is just £900.

That’s only 1p more than the SIM-free price from Samsung's store which clearly doesn’t offer any data, calls or texts.

As a quick reminder, the S10+ offers a few extras over the standard S10 such as a bigger 6.4-inch AMOLED display, dual front-facing selfie camera and much larger 4,100mAh battery.
