      Sky Mobile to offer Samsung’s Galaxy S8 with Swap

      Sky Mobile to offer Samsung’s Galaxy S8 with Swap, the new, affordable way to get the latest phone every year

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...one-every-year

      Sky has today confirmed Samsung’s new flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8, will be available for pre-order with Sky Mobile. Sky is offering the lowest monthly price compared to all major providers for the Samsung Galaxy S8, starting at just £36 per month with no upfront costs on a Swap24 plan. It will be available for pre-order from March 30.

      The first customers who pre-order will be able to unbox their new Galaxy S8 eight days earlier than the general release on the 28 April 2017. And with Swap12, they will be able to swap their Galaxy S8 after 12 months to get the next, latest phone, free of charges.

      Liz Wynn, Sky’s Director of Mobile, said: “Adding the brand new Samsung S8 and S8+ to Sky Mobile is great news for people who want to get their hands on the latest phone at the lowest monthly price with Swap24. We’ve also introduced Swap12 so customers no longer have to wait up to two years before upgrading.”

      The Galaxy S8’s rounded corner infinity display and symmetrical metal sides blend effortlessly for a seamless look. The phone also boasts an ultra-thin bezel, 18:5:9 ratio display and a large sAMOLED screen for a fully immersive viewing experience.

      Seems a bit expensive to me.
      Ist example
      Cost of phone for 2 years = £624
      Cost of phone for 1 year = £492

      2nd example
      cost of phone for 2 years = £720
      cost of phone for 1 year = £564 or 444 depending on which figure you take.

      Charging for the phone after the initial period is up seems wrong, or are they only renting you the phone? If so it does not look much of a deal.
