Buy a new Samsung Galaxy phone
Buying your new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 upfront allows you to switch to a SIM-only deal.
A SIM-only deal can work out cheaper if you intend to stick with your phone for the long term. It also gives you the freedom to switch to cheaper deals when you choose.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3 compared
Apart from cost, the main difference is the folding design.
