Samsung’s Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e are not only official but they’re also all available to buy now from Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Woolworths Mobile (you can also pick up this device on plans from Southern Phone and TeleChoice). But with so many plans to choose from – and prices more competitive than ever – it’s not always easy to find the best deal for your budget and usage needs.

If you’re considering picking up the latest Galaxy S10 phone on a telco plan, there’s a lot to consider before you commit to a 12, 24, or 36-month contract.

Which telco is best for data?

Want big data? If you’re looking at 100GB or more, plans with the S10 aren’t cheap. But comparing Telstra, Vodafone and Optus at this data level over two years, here’s what you’ll pay for a 128GB Galaxy S10:

  • Vodafone $80 Red Plus Plan (120GB max speed data + unlimited 1.5Mbps data): $99.12 per month ($80 plan + $29.12 phone payment). Total cost $2,378.88 over two years.  (Discontinued)
  • Optus $79 Extra Large Choice Plan (120GB data): $136 per month ($79 plan + $57 phone payment). Total cost $3,264 over two years. (Discontinued)
  • Telstra $115 Extra Large Plan (180GB data): $160 per month ($115 plan + $45 phone payment). Total cost $3,840 over two years.

While Vodafone does offer unlimited data on all  Red Plus phone plans, speeds are limited to 1.5Mbps. This is fast enough for most every-day usage, although you’ll be restricted to standard definition video streaming. Telstra also includes unlimited capped-speed data on all four plans, effectively eliminating excess data charges, so once you go over your inclusion, you’ll still have data but at a capped speed.
