The Samsung Galaxy S20 has just been unveiled in a glitzy new hardware showcase in California, but Mobile Phones Direct may have given Android fans the perfect reason to pick up last year’s S10 instead. The retailer is selling the Galaxy S10 series with cashback offers that dramatically cut the price of contracts with vast amounts of data – something you're not going to see on the Galaxy S20 series anytime soon.
Mobile Phones Direct is selling the Galaxy S10e – the cheapest model in the Galaxy S10 series – for £43 per month with £396 cashback, effectively reducing the monthly tariff to a mere £26.50.
This particular contract is with O2 and comes with 30GB of data in addition to unlimited minutes and texts. That's more than enough data to stream all of your favourite albums on Spotify, watch some YouTube videos on the train to work, and keep friends, family and school bullies from your past inundated with holiday photos on Facebook.

Mobile Phones Direct will provide customers with instructions on how to claim cashback with their order. The cashback isn't automatic, so you'll have to request a portion of the cashback after months six, nine, 12, 15 and 18. In total, these repayments will equal the full £396.
Unfortunately, the standard Galaxy S10 isn’t being sold with cashback, but the retailer is tripling the amount of data offered, meaning you can get 45GB for the price of 15GB.

Lastly, but certainly not least, Mobile Phones Direct is selling the Galaxy S10+ with £396 cashback, effectively reducing its monthly price from £49 to £32.50. This particular plan comes with 100GB of data, meaning you can stream a swathe of TV shows, movies and music with plenty of data allowance to spare.

Why should you consider picking up one of these deals instead of getting Samsung Galaxy S20? Well, in addition offering outstanding value, the Galaxy S10 series remains one of the most capable smartphones around and will be able to hold its own against the S20.
No matter which S10 model you pick up, Android fans will be treated to a pixel-packed display, a gorgeous design and a capable camera system.
Of course, the Galaxy S20 has some newer tech squeezed inside – such as a better camera with an improved zoom and a 120Hz display. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line Galaxy S20 Ultra packs the most impressive upgrade of all the models – to offer a new 108-megapixel main camera and a 10x lossless optical zoom.
