Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge arrive in stores

Today is officially Galaxy S7 day, with handsets arriving into store. It means that everyone – not just those that pre-orded – can get either the S7 or S7 edge.


We’ve had some details from Vodafone, giffgaff and Three this morning, so here’s what you need to know if you’re considering buying through these networks.

Firstly, Three. They’re keen to promote the 4G at no extra cost, their Feel at Home roaming deal and six months free Deezer subscription. Also they are pushing the fact that the Samsung handsets are compatible with Three’s 4G Super-Voice network, which will allow users access to greater coverage while indoors. They’ve sent a spreadsheet across so that you can see the prices, or you can jump across to the Three website..

You can pay a deposit of just £25 and then, over 24 months, pay either £26.97 for the S7 or £29.94 for the S7 edge with their Peer-to-Peer lending system.

Meanwhile it actually looks like pre-orders went extremely well. Samsung have responded to our earlier story and they tell us that their S7 smartphones have generated more pre-orders than any other Galaxy smartphone in the UK … ever. Sales for the new Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were at least two and a half times greater than those of any other previous Galaxy device in the UK. I
