There comes a time in every handset’s life when the majority of major retailers slowly stop stocking it. Sadly, the most recent mobile phone to get hit with this fate just happens to be an old favourite of ours – the Samsung Galaxy S8.
While Samsung Galaxy S8 deals are still available to buy, the number of offers available has dropped drastically and prices have shot up. We’re now seeing it displayed as out of stock with a number of major retailers.
So for Android fans who were hoping for their budget phone fix with this award winning device, what can you do instead? Well luckily, the market is full of excellent bargain alternatives.

1. The next generation up – Samsung Galaxy S9 deals
2. 2019 Android specs – Samsung Galaxy A70 deals
3. Our favourite budget device – Huawei P Smart
Huawei P Smart | SIM-free | £129.99
The only SIM-free option on this list but with good reason. The Huawei P smart is by far our favourite budget device mainly because of that jaw-dropping price. Phones under £200 these days are rare, so the fact that Huawei P Smart deals are so cheap makes it a budget phone to look out for. Pair this with a cheap SIM only deal and you’ve got yourself an affordable phone plan to beat all others.
