You can narrow down your search based on the mobile features offered and then select a mobile plan which suits your needs. When the phone you are interested in does become available, something to bear in mind are data package sizes. If you are a light user and mainly want a data plan to check social media applications, investing in a data heavy plan might not be ideal. For the Samsung fans out there, the new Samsung Galaxy S6 is roughly expected to land in the UAE around mid-April.
