The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 goes on sale in the UK at the end of August, so it is time to start shopping around for the best deals. This guide has been written to help you pick from a range of tariffs from all of the UK's major mobile networks and retailer Carphone Warehouse.

But first, let us look at buying the Galaxy Note 7 outright. Bought from Samsung itself, the Note 7 with 64GB of storage (the only model we get in the UK) costs £739. From that price drops to £675.

If spending so much at once on a smartphone makes you feel nauseous then don't worry, because here are the more palatable network deals. Note 7 pre-orders in the UK include a Samsung Gear VR headset for free.

Carphone Warehouse

Recommended deals from Carphone Warehouse start at £42 from Vodafone. This includes 6GB of data plus unlimited calls and texts and 500MB of data to use abroad. The Note 7 costs £59 upfront.

This can be adjusted to include 12GB of data, plus 2GB to use abroad, for an extra £5 a month, while the handset goes down to £49.

Next up is a plan from EE which includes 10GB of data, unlimited calls and texts, and free BT Sports access on the phone for £45.99 plus a £99.99 upfront cost.

This deal can also be had with 5GB of data for the same £50.99 fee, but the handset price increases to £99.99.

EE's claimed best-selling plan is next, which costs £55.99 a month and includes the same 5GB of data, but here the Note 7 costs just £29.99 upfront.
