Samsung Galaxy S10 from Telstra: lease vs buy

The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is also available to lease over a 24-month period. What this means is instead of paying off your phone over two years, then keeping it forever, you’re basically renting it; after 24 months of payments, you’ll need to hand your phone back to Telstra, or pay an extra ‘fair market’ price to own it. These plans are usually $10 per month cheaper than the above standard payment plans, and also give you the option of upgrading your phone after 12 months.

To do this, you’ll need to hand in your phone, and pay a $99 upgrade fee. Leasing is only available for selected devices, but it may be worth considering if you like to upgrade every year. You can combine your lease with the above two-year Telstra plans; read on for prices including your phone.

Below are the outright recommended retail prices for the new Samsung Galaxy smartphone range. However, these don’t necessarily reflect what you’ll pay if you buy on-contract from Telstra; generally, the phone will cost less in total if you pay it off over two years on a Telstra plan.

  • 128GB: $1,349
  • 512GB: $1,699

Samsung Galaxy S10+

  • 128GB: $1,499

As you can see, there are many options to choose from if Telstra is your go-to for the Galaxy S10. But think carefully about which plan best meets your usage and entertainment needs, because these plans represent a pretty significant financial commitment.

Why Telstra?

Sports fans have plenty of reasons to choose Telstra. In addition to NRL and AFL coverage, the telco also holds the streaming rights to Australian netball and the Hyundai A-League soccer. If you’re more into guitars than goals, Telstra’s plans also come with a six-month Apple Music subscription, plus data-free streaming from the service. You’ll also get use of the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network and Fon Wi-Fi when overseas.

Worried about overages? Large and Extra Large plans include unlimited ‘Peace of Mind’ data (data slowed to 1.5Mbps), but you can add this feature to lower-priced plans for an extra $10 per month. The $129 Extra Large plan also includes a $10 per month credit, lowering your monthly price to $119.

If you want all fast data, all the time, the $199 Ultimate Unlimited plan comes with unlimited high-speed gigabytes (and is the only Australian mobile plan to offer unlimited fast data). This plan also includes 10GB of overseas roaming data each month, plus unlimited international talk and text to all countries.
