How to get the best Samsung S21 FE deal
If the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is the phone for you, you’ll want to find the best plan and network. Here’s our tips for bagging the best deal:
- Work out your budget: Think about how much you can afford to spend each month and what you can pay upfront. You may be able to find a deal with a free handset, but you’ll have to pay more per month.
- Know your data needs: Unlimited data plans are becoming the norm but if you go for a cheaper, data-limited plan, make sure the monthly cap is enough. Most people tend to use about 5GB per month, but far less if they’re at home most of the time.
- Check out coverage in your area: Pick the network with the best coverage in your area. There’s no point in paying extra for a 5G phone if you can’t get 5G where you live.
