Three cuts upfront handset costs on Galaxy S2, Sensation and other Android phones

Three has cut prices on five popular Android handsets; with upfront charges for the phones cut entirely on the likes of the HTC Desire S, Sensation, Samsung’s Galaxy S2, Galaxy Ace and original Galaxy S.

Though it’s worth noting none are on Three’s awesome all-you-can-eat data plan, all arrive with at least 500 MB of data per month.

As smartphones continue to pull customers away from lower priced feature phones, Threes says it’s attempting to remove those often high upfront costs that “key barrier” to smartphones. (Or perhaps it’s clearing shelf space for a certain fifth iteration of a non-Android smartphone…)

Director of Voice for the network, William Ripley, said: “At Three we always try to help our customers choose the best smartphones and give them the best deals.

“Our emphasis is not just on voice and text, but also a generous internet allowance, which is ideal for new smartphone users. Smartphone adoption is increasing at a rapid rate and Android is proving popular due to the great value, variety of manufacturers and choice of form and function it offers.

“As such these excellent new deals aim to cut the cost of entry to the many benefits of mobile internet.”

We like the look of both the HTC Desire S and Samsung’s Galaxy Ace; the former is £22 per month, whilst the latter is a ruthless £15 per month.

But if you’re looking for a high-end Android phone, you can choose from either the Galaxy S2 or the HTC Sensation.

Both cost £30 per month, and included into that, you’ll get 500 minutes, 5000 texts and 1GB of internet each month. No upfront payment too.
