Samsung’s S7 Range goes Silver
It’s been a bit of a wait for the remaining two colour schemes of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to be released in the UK but finally the choice between just black onyx or gold platinum has come to an end.
Following on from EE launching their 4G contract prices for the S7 and S7 Edge in white pearl just a couple of days ago, the final silver titanium edition has finally landed!
Currently a CPW Group exclusive handset colour, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge silver titanium editions have been launched with deals on EE, Vodafone, O2, and iD Mobile for ‘new customer’ contracts as well as with upgrade prices on all but the iD network.
As you might expect with an exclusive handset launch, the prices for the silver S7 & S7 edge are marginally more expensive than those of the existing models …

Samsung S7 Silver Upgrades
Galaxy S7 Upgrade Prices
For those looking to keep their current mobile number and stay on the same network there are upgrade contracts available across O2, EE and Vodafone.
O2 offers the cheapest upgrade deals with the lowest line rental priced at £38 a month with no upfront cost, this Samsung S7 silver upgrade contract includes unlimited calls and 1GB of data, however if you choose a lower priced tariff at £36.50 with an upfront cost of £79.99 you can enjoy 3GB of data.
EE’s lowest priced upgrade tariffs to include the phone free of charge are at £40.99 per month with 1000 minutes of calls and 2GB of monthly data, however if you opt for the tariff priced just below this at £38.49 a month and pay £29.99 upfront you can enjoy 5GB of data with unlimited calls.
Finally Vodafone upgrade deals that include the phone with no upfront payment start at £40 a month for unlimited calls and 2GB of data, but again if you opt for the next lowest priced tariff at £39 a month and pay £99.99 upfront you can benefit from 6GB of data every month.
Galaxy S7 Edge Upgrade Prices
As mentioned previously, upgrading to the silver Samsung S7 Edge whilst keeping your number and staying with your current operator is actually cheaper in some instances than taking on a new number or moving (porting) your number from a different network.
Vodafone offer the cheapest upgrade tariffs that include the phone free of charge, priced at £49 a month, however in this case it’s cheaper to take on a new number or port your number …
The difference is really seen in O2 and EE upgrade deals where ‘new customers’ are not offered the phone free of charge but upgrading customers are.
If you would like to upgrade to the S7 Edge silver on O2, the lowest priced tariff with a free phone is at £50 a month whilst EE customers can upgrade at £50.99.
O2’s deal includes 5GB of data whilst EE’s has 10GB, however again there are cheaper options available is you do not mind paying a little upfront to upgrade.
