Three UK is now offering the gold Galaxy S5

If you were looking to buy the gold edition of the Galaxy S5 in the UK, your choice of carrier was limited to Vodafone (opens in new tab). As of today, however, you can pick up the gold color variant of the Galaxy S5 at Three UK's website in addition to its retail stores. The carrier's announcement came as a bit of a surprise, as Vodafone revealed during the launch of the Galaxy S5 that it would be exclusively carrying the gold edition of the handset in the UK.

The upfront cost for the handset is £69, which is followed by monthly payments which last for 24 months. For £41 a month, you get unlimited calls, texts and data, while the £38 plan offers you unlimited texts with either unlimited minutes and 2 GB data or unlimited data and 600 minutes. Three has also announced that all users will receive 4G data at no extra cost.

There is also a pay-as-you-go option through which you can purchase the handset outright for £549. In this plan, you will be paying 3p/min for voice calls, 2p/text and 1p/MB.

  • when will samsung learn NO ONE LIKES UGLY, TACKY, GAUDY COLORS. and NO ONE LIKES DIMPLES (if we didnt like batmans nipples, what makes them think we like inverted ones????)
  • Yes because either are comparable products. The feel of the s5 is nice. The dimples add some grip, but yeah after a few weeks with one as a tester, it gets ugly quickly. Posted via Android Central App
