UK price & Availability:
As expected, the price of the Samsung Galaxy S8 plus in the UK is whopping £779 . It is available at various online UK merchents. It can be bought directly from Samsung also.

The phone is designed, with an edged screen display with a 6.2 in screen and a dimension of 73x160x8.1mm weighing 173g. Along with a fantastic screen-to-bezel ratio which matches the rounded corners of the display with the metal frame, it has a pressure sensitive home button fabricated on the screen. To enable this feature, the conventional home screen button has been eradicated and the fingerprint scanner has been shifted to the back. A glossy finish gives it an aesthetic look but makes it super slimy as well. Although it is impregnated with Gorilla Glass 5 rear cover and IP68 rated dust and waterproofing, it is a compulsion to use a case.

Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the devices, which were sent back due to any fault or under any exchange plan or any other authorized reason by its previous owner. However these are checked and restored to fully working condition if necessary.
Typically they come without original packing and accessories. To ensure comfort of further users, warranty is added with them. Technically it is a used phone but it is better then bought from any random user.
Based on condition these might be categorized as:
- Grade A: new looking condition and no major signs of handling.
- Grade B: may have minor scratches or signs of being used.
- Grade C: will show signs of being used.
With the brand new phones we also compare cheap offers of refurbished phones. We put an indicator (refurb), within the deal; if no such indicator is present then it’s a new phone.
What is a cashback deal?
You may have found few contracts on Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, inclusive a cashback. It can be redeemable or automatic in nature. It reduces your effective cost of the overall contract but doesn’t effect on your monthly payments. Few retailers may have shown it as discounted monthly line rental but we have shown it separately to make it clearer.
- Automatic Cashback: as the name suggests, it is paid to you directly by the retailer at the set period of time of your contract.
- Redeemable Cashback: it is usually higher than the automatic cashback for the same plan offered. But you need to claim it at the set intervals during your contract period.
We recommend you to clarify all cashback related queries at the retailer’s website, as the terms may vary for different retailers.
