This Samsung Galaxy S8 deal on O2 is the best ever with voucher TRBLKFRIS8

This Samsung Galaxy S8 deal on O2 is the best ever with voucher TRBLKFRIS8

Update: Mobiles.co.uk has confirmed that this deal will run until the end of Black Friday unless stock runs out before then.

There’s still a few days to go before the world erupts into a Black Friday sales frenzy, but Mobiles.co.uk has already served up an early cracker of a Galaxy S8 deal. In fact, it’s the best price we’ve seen yet on Samsung’s brilliant 2017 flagship phone.

We’ve worked with the Carphone Warehouse-owned retailer to offer TechRadar readers an exclusive discount to knock a further £30 off the upfront cost. That means it’s £60 at the start and then only £26 per month, with 4GB of data and unlimited everything else on O2. All you have to do is follow the link and then type in the voucher code TRBLKFRIS8 at the checkout.

This is the first time that we’ve ever seen the Galaxy S8 burst under the £700 mark for the two year contract. It’s miles ahead of everything else on the market, with the next best deal giving you only 2GB of data and costing around £85 more in total.

And if 4GB isn’t quite enough data for you, Mobiles.co.uk has just knocked £85 off its 12GB tariff, too. Use our exclusive 10OFF code and it’s now £25 upfront – instead of £110 – with monthly payments of just £29.

We think this is THE Samsung Galaxy S8 deal for Black Friday 2017 – if we didn’t we wouldn’t be shouting about it!

We’ve rooted out the cheapest deals on the best handsets from the major UK networks. Use TechRadar’s custom made price comparison chart above to find your ideal phone and contract – simply pick your desired handset, budget and allowances and we’ll tell you the very best phone deal around.

Below, you can browse through our individual handset guides for all of the best mobile phone deals out there, whether you’re after the new iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or something a little older (and cheaper!). Want a free phone? Lots of data? The lowest possible monthly cost? We’ll help you find the perfect deal. We’ve even picked out the best SIM only deals, in case you’re not quite ready to part with your current handset.

Buying a mobile phone – what you need to know

Of course you want to find the cheapest price for your new smartphone – and our comparison chart at the top of the page will narrow that down for you – but we know there are likely to be dozens more questions you’ll want answering. Keep reading below, where we answer some of the key commonly asked questions about buying a new mobile.

Can I keep my old number?

You can indeed, and it’s really easy – so no need to send one of those texts to everybody in your phone book telling them your new digits.

What you need to do is grab a PAC – or Porting Authorisation Code – from your old network. We’ve listed the direct numbers you need for the four major networks below. As soon as they’ve sent it to you, which should be within a day or two, you just need to give it to your new network. Voila – brand new phone with the same old number. Easy.

It becomes slightly less easy if the deal you pick out above is on the same network as your current one. They won’t let you keep your number, so you have to use this workaround. Buy a free pay-as-you-go SIM from any other network and tell your network that you’re moving. They’ll release the PAC code, which you then give to the substitute network. Then, you immediately get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they’ll move your number to your new contract. Long winded, but worth it.

  • EE 07953 966 250
  • O2 0344 8090202
  • Vodafone 03333 040 191
  • Three 0333 300 3333
  • ID 0333 003 7777
  • GiffGaff 43431 from your handset
  • Virgin 0345 6000 789
  • BT 0800 800 150
  • Tesco 0345 301 4455
  • Sky 03300 412 524
  • Asda 0800 079 2732

Which phone network is best?

Loyalty is an admirable trait, but could end up costing you money when it comes to the perfect phone deal. If you don’t mind leaving your comfort zone, you may find that heading to one of the other major networks may well be worth it…

Despite what Richard Branson’s adverts might suggest, EE is the Usain Bolt of phone networks. Nobody else can come close to EE’s 4G speeds in the UK. So if you rely on fast internet while away from WI-Fi, then EE is the obvious choice. Plus, EE gives you three free months of BT Sport (or more if you get a Max plan) when you sign up, as well as six months of Apple Music. The EE coverage checker will confirm how strong it is where you live.  

The biggest lure to O2 is the network’s Priority rewards (well, that and Sean Bean’s mellifluous tones). From cheap lunches and free coffees to first refusal on big gig tickets, O2 is the network for regular goodies. Plus, they have 1000s of Wi-Fi hotspots in shops and cafes that you can connect to. Use the O2 coverage checker to see whether you’ll be able to access 4G.  

Good news for jet-setters – Vodafone lets you use your data, calls and texts allowances in 50 countries around the world without charge. But things really start to get good when you splash out on its bigger Red Entertainment data plans, as Vodafone will give you your choice of a NOW TV Entertainment Pass, Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile subscription. Click to check if Vodafone covers your home.  

3 remains the king of the big data deals, and still the only one of the big four networks to offer unlimited, uncapped, all-you-can-eat delicious data. We also like that you can use 4G to make calls and texts via the dedicated Three inTouch app, and you can connect to Wi-Fi in the London Underground if you ever find yourself in the capital. But 4G coverage isn’t as strong as the other networks – check whether your postcode is covered with the Three coverage checker.  

What phone contract length should I get?

Well if you’re buying a new phone plan with a contract, you haven’t got much choice. It’s 24 months or nothing, these days. If you don’t want to be tied down to that kind of commitment, then you’ll have to go down the SIM only route and buy the handset separately – we’ve rounded up the best SIM free phone deals to help you make your chocie.

How much phone data do I need?

The answer to this one will be different for everybody. If you only really carry your phone for emergencies, then go for the minimum amount of data and save a packet. If you like to scroll through Facebook on the bus and stream Spotify, you’ll need a bit more. And if you frequently stream videos and download masses of files, then 30GB or even unlimited may be worth paying extra for.

As well as checking your phone to see how much you tend to use a month at the moment, the below guidelines will also help you pick out the perfect plan:

  • 1GB Some networks offer 500MB plans, but realistically we think you should get at least 1GB. It won’t be much more expensive (if at all) and will afford you a little bit of Google Mapping, WhatsApping and emailing when you need them.
  • 2-3GB If you like to scroll through your social media feeds and emails while out and about without fear of extra cash to pay on your monthly bill, then up your data.
  • 4-8GB The likes of Spotify and Apple Music have promised us all our favourite tunes wherever we roam. Kit yourself out with a bit more data and you’ll have plenty for music streaming and the occasional video, too.
    10-16GB This should be more than enough for most users. Loads of data for streaming music, downloading podcasts and enjoying social media videos. Because there’s no such thing as too many cats falling into bins.
  • 20-30GB Big data for the big phone user. Perfect for watching Netflix videos, downloading content and streaming loads of music. And these plans often have extra freebies thrown in, too.
  • Unlimited The 3 network is still the only one of the ‘Big 4’ to offer unlimited data. It can be really pricey though, so think long and hard whether you really need it.

Should I get unlimited calls and texts?

Actually these days, the vast majority of phone contracts feature unlimited calls and texts. We do see some of the cheaper plans sometimes limit them, but even if they do, you can use your data allowance on popular apps like WhatsApp, Skype and Hangouts to make calls and texts if your minutes run dry.

How much phone memory do I need?

You’re likely to be one of two kinds of person:

Person 1: You like all your photos, music, downloads and other media to be saved directly on to your phone. If that sounds like you, 16GB or 32GB handsets may not be enough and you should use our comparison chart to find the most affordable 64GB, 128GB or 256GB models.

Person 2: You’re a stream demon. You’ve got subscriptions to Spotify and Netflix and you save all your Word docs and snaps into the cloud. Save your money and go for a cheaper, lower memory handset.

OK person 3, calm down – you fall somewhere between the two, right? If you can afford to get a smartphone with more memory, that is probably safest. But don’t forget that most phones do allow you to insert an additional SD card if you run out of space – most phones apart from iPhones, that is.

Are refurbished phones good to buy?

Refurbished phones can provide a alternative to a new handset if you’re budget is a shoestring. ‘Refurbished’ often means that the previous owner simply changed their mind about the phone soon after buying it, so it’s still practically brand new – and the potential savings can be substantial.

If you do spy an unbelievable deal on a refurbed phone, the main thing to make sure of is the warranty. Double check that you are properly covered for a decent length of time. A year’s warranty is preferable.

TechRadar’s unbiased and independent mobile phone deals comparison

Thanks for visiting TechRadar’s mobile phone deal comparison page! Our price comparison system includes 2.47 million mobile phone contracts from all of the major networks and resellers so that you can always find the one that suits you best.

Unlike some other major sites, our philosophy is to always display you with the absolute cheapest deals for the criteria you select. So you’ll always be able to see the cheapest prices for the best phones with contracts with the most generous data allowances.

How does TechRadar make money from affiliates?

If you buy a phone after visiting this page, TechRadar will be paid a small commission by the network or reseller you buy from. This money is paid by the site you buy from and thus does not affect the amount you pay for your phone contract. If you go direct to the site you buy from, you would pay the same amount.

The money that TechRadar makes from this free service allows us to improve our product comparison tools and pay the editors who trawl through all the sites and select the best deals every month.

While some sites out there will be paid larger fees for pushing people to specific deals that aren’t necessarily the cheapest, TechRadar will always find you the absolute cheapest deal. Trust and integrity is important to us, so if you ever think we’re not displaying the very best deals let us know.

How do we order these mobile phone deals?

Our mobile phone deal comparison tools sift through millions of different deals and surfaces the ones we think are the very best. Essentially that means finding deals that work out the cheapest over a 24 month contract while still supplying at least 1GB of data, as you’ve told us that 1GB is your absolute minimum. If you need more data, use the filters and we’ll display the cheapest prices for your increased amount.

On this specific page, we have many mobile phone options displaying in one comparison table. In this case, we try and find you a balance between paying the cheapest price and getting the best phone for your money.

How do the mobile phone deals comparison tools work?

The comparison tools you find on the page above will hopefully be very easy to use. You can select what your budget is, whether it be upfront cost or monthly fee or both. And you can say how much data you need or how many minutes and texts. You can even filter by network if you really want to be on a specific carrier. The deals will automatically update as you drill down in your search, always favouring the cheapest options over the more expensive ones. If you ever want to refresh and start your search again, simply select the ‘CLEAR ALL FILTERS’ option to begin again from scratch.

What is TechRadar?

TechRadar is Europe’s largest technology reviews website with over 22 million visitors every month. It’s our aim to provide you with the very best buying advice, always. If you’d like to read reviews of the mobile phones you see on this page, you can visit TechRadar’s reviews homepage.

How do we select which networks and resellers to display?

TechRadar strives to include all mobile phone deals from all UK networks and resellers so that you can search through all the available deals in the UK without having to look on all the websites separately. However, for sites to be included they need to supply us with a feed of their deals. This is the only reason why a phone reseller or network wouldn’t appear in our system – but the vast majority do.

This year’s best Black Friday broadband deals so far:

Broadband deals

Finding the best broadband internet deals is no easy task – there are so many options. Do you need superfast fibre broadband?

We’re here to help you make that decision. Pop in your postcode above and we’ll give you a list of the lowest priced home broadband deals available in your area. With the latest offers from BT broadband, Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk all included, our widget will filter down the best broadband deals in the UK today.

What broadband speed do I need?

Superfast fibre broadband may sound appetising, but it may not be necessary for your home – especially if you want to cut costs. It could be worth considering slower, cheaper ADSL instead.

Broadband speeds are represented in megabits per second, or Mb. Crudely speaking, the more Mbs, the faster the broadband speed. But remember that the advertised speed is the maximum and doesn’t necessarily represent the actual speed you’ll end up getting. That varies depending where you live.

0-25Mb This entry-level broadband speed is transmitted via an ADSL connection to your nearest BT exchange. The equivalent to around 2.1MB per second, It should be fast enough for small households where only one or two people are using the internet at once. Be aware that if you stream TV, you may experience the odd interruption.

25-50Mb Where Virgin led the way, the rest followed. Now every big provider offers rapid fibre broadband. This is the sweet spot between fast speeds and good value and just the ticket for a family household where four or five members are all streaming, downloading and surfing at once.

50+Mb If you stream 4K TV or have loads of people trying to use your broadband connection at once, then it may be worth shelling out for the extra speed. It may cost you more, but you’re pretty much guaranteed lag-free use – plus, the providers often sweeten the deal with added extras and rewards.

best broadband deals

Is fibre broadband available in my area?

There’s one very easy way to find out…scroll to the top of this page and input your postcode. We’ll tell you straight away whether you can get fast fibre broadband.

Roughly speaking, 90% of UK homes now have the option of connecting to fibre broadband. But if you have your heart on Virgin Media fibre plans, it’s more like around 60%.

best broadband deals

What contract length should I go for?

Most broadband providers lock you in for at least 12 months, with one year plans being by far the most common.  That said, perhaps taking their cue from mobile phone contracts, we are now seeing some providers experimenting with longer plans, with 18 month contracts rearing their heads.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, some providers now offer short term rolling contracts. Virgin Media, for example, have 30 day plans for commitment-phobes. The downside is you’ll be expected to play a larger setup fee.

When your contract comes to an end, be prepared for your monthly tariff to be hiked – especially if you were lucky enough to get a great introductory offer at the outset.

best broadband deals

Will I have to pay anything upfront for broadband?

Usually. Sometimes known as ‘setup’, ‘upfront’ or ‘activation’ fees, most of the major broadband providers ask for at least some payment when you kick off your contract. The amount usually depends on what level of package you go for, but it will likely be somewhere between £10 and £60. Only TalkTalk bucks the trend – they’ve scrapped their activation fee completely, while other brands run frequent promotions where they temporarily scrap their upfront cost.

There may be other added extras, too, however. If you take a broadband and TV package, you might be charged for the TV set-top box. And some, including BT and EE, charge delivery for the router.

best broadband deals

Do I have to pay more to have a phone line?

If you still use a home landline to make and receive calls, you’re in luck – many broadband plans don’t  just feature a landline, but they actually include it in your monthly price.

You will have to start paying more though when you have a personalised call plan. You’ll see your standard monthly bill begin to escalate when you start adding unlimited evening, daytime or international calls to the mix.

As we say, with only 500MB of data to play with a month, this deal won’t suit everybody. But if you give iD a fraction more of your monthly pay packet, it will up the data. For every £2 extra you spend, iD doubles the data (up to a maximum of 4GB).

It’s not the most popular network on the market, lacking the prestige of mobile phone deals from the EEs, O2s and Threes of this world. But iD offers some great perks, like data rollover. So if you fall short of your data allowance in any one month period, iD will roll it over so you’ve got extra for the next month.

iPhone 6 review and key specs

Still brilliant after three years

Weight: 129g | Dimensions: 138.1 x 67 x 6.9mm | OS: iOS 10.3.3 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 750 x 1334 resolution | CPU: Apple A8 | RAM: 1GB | Storage: 16/32/64/128GB | Battery: 1810mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP

Unlike more recent entries in the iPhone ouevre, Apple made a genuine leap forward from the iPhone 5S with its successor. The iPhone 6 remains one of the best phones Apple has ever created or, indeed, ever created by any manufacturer. At the time of release, its faster CPU, better graphics and slicker interface really made it seem worth the high price – so now it’s a bonafide bargain!

Save £25 on our favourite iPhone 7 deal – now only £50 upfront and £29 per month for 12GB data

Save £25 on our favourite iPhone 7 deal – now only £50 upfront and £29 per month for 12GB data

We see it on Black Friday every year – the recently usurped Apple iPhone gets a big price drop just in time for sales season. And 2017 has proved no different, as the peachy prices on iPhone 7 deals have just started to show themselves.

We already loved this O2 tariff: 12GB of data, unlimited calls and texts, and access to the network’s Priority rewards, all for £75 when you sign up and then a very reasonable £29 a month. But then Mobiles.co.uk pulled out a special discount code to knock a further £25 off the upfront cost. Enter BLACKFRI25 where prompted at the checkout.

Black Friday iPhone 7 deal in full:

iPhone 7 | O2 | £75 £50 handset (with BLACKFRI25 code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 12GB data | £29 per month
This isn’t the very cheapest iPhone 7 deal we’ve ever seen (check out this
£19pm offer from Virgin Mobile), but it’s the best value. Paying less than £750 in total over two years for a 2016 flagship iPhone is good enough on its own, but when you consider you get 12GB of data thrown in, this iPhone 7 deal is utterly splendid.  Total cost over 24 months is £746

The best iPhone 7 deals for Black Friday 2017

The best iPhone 7 deals for Black Friday 2017

Forget those iPhone 8 deals. Laugh in the face of iPhone X deals. iPhone 7 deals just dropped to an all time low, with the first sub-£700 tariff we’ve ever seen on Apple’s fantastic 2016 flagship over the two year contract.

It’s almost as if Black Friday has come early. The £22.99 per month deal on EE is the first volley of fire in the deals season battleground. It’s a tariff that’s almost as cheap as some of the best iPhone 6S deals currently on the market, and hundreds of pounds cheaper than the iPhone X and 8.

As well as the above deal, on this page you’ll find all of the best iPhone 7 deals you can get right now. Whether you’re looking for unlimited data, a free phone or any other type of tariff, you can use our comparison chart below to choose the cheapest option out there. Scroll down to find the best deal for you. And don’t forget that you’ll get a tenner off the handset cost if you get your iPhone 7 from Mobiles.co.uk.

If you were planning to hold out until the big bargain bonanza that will be Black Friday 2017, we’re not sure iPhone 7 prices will drop much lower than this.

Now let’s break down the best iPhone 7 deals by network…

iphone 7 deals

Best iPhone 7 deals on EE this month

iPhone 7 32GB | £135 upfront (with 10FF code) | 2GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £22.99pm
BEST. iPHONE 7 DEAL. EVER. Previous £22.99 per month tariffs on this superb former flagship have required upfront prices nearing on £200. It’s far less with this deal. If you’re after the cheapest iPhone 7 deal possible on EE, then this is the one you need – the first under £700 for the two year term. The plan comes with unlimited calls and texts to add to the 2GB of data. Total cost over 24 months is £686.76

iPhone 7 32GB | £70 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 5GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £27.99pm
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been pushing a 5GB EE tariff from Affordable Mobiles thanks to the fact that you pay nothing upfront. But go for this one instead and the £70 splash at the outset means that your monthly payments are a fievr less. That works out at a fifty pound saving in the long run. Total cost over 24 months is £741.76

iPhone 7 32GB | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £37.99pm
Don’t fancy spending upwards of £100 on your new phone? Then this tariff from Affordable Mobiles is a good’n. You get a completely FREE handset, and then you have to pay £37.99 per month – that’s not terrible for the iPhone 7 and a generous 15GB of data, which is an increase of 5GB from last month. Total cost over 24 months is £911.76

iPhone 7 128GB | £95 upfront | 2GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £32.99 per month
If you want the extra storage space that the 128GB iPhone 7 affords, you have to be prepared to spend. We understand that the large handset price will put some people off, but this is not a bad price on such a desirable handset. Total cost over 24 months is £886.76

Best iPhone 7 deals on O2 this month

iPhone 7 32GB | £65 handset (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 12GB data | £29 per month
On the balance of things, this might just be our favourite iPhone 7 deal of all at the moment. It can’t boast of costing less than £700 over two years, but getting the 2016 iPhone 7 for less than £30 a month AND with 12GB of data every month is frankly superb. A real tempter, this one. Total cost over 24 months is £761

View this deal: at Mobiles.co.uk

iPhone 7 128GB | £165 handset (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data | £27 per month
If 32GB memory just simply isn’t going to cut it, then this is probably the best O2 deal to go for. For a mere £27 a month you can get hold of the more capacious 128GB model. It’s a bit of a wedge to spend up front but you get a respectable 3GB of data and much more room for music and videos. Total cost over 24 months is £813

Best iPhone 7 deals on Vodafone this month

iPhone 7 32GB | £75 upfront (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 16GB data | £34pm
Vodafone dropped out of the picture for a while as a genuinely competitive network on the iPhone 7. But this 16GB tariff from Mobiles.co.uk is a real show of strength. The balance between the upfront spend and monthly bills is a standout. Total cost over 24 months is £891

View this deal at Mobiles.co.uk

iPhone 7 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 26GB data | £44pm
Vodafone has just started experimenting with some very sexy new data allowances, and this mighty 26GB tariff replaces its best 16GB deals from yore. It may look expensive, but that’s a heck of a lot of data, so still worth a look if you’re a Vodafone devotee. And you don’t even have to pay a penny at the start of the contract. Total cost over 24 months is £1056

View this deal at Mobiles.co.uk

Best iPhone 7 deals on Three this month

iPhone 7 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 8GB data | £32pm
We frequently praise Three for turning out excellent value prices on big data plans, but this recently-improved 8GB tariff is very handy if you’re swayed by the numerical network – especially now that it’s just ditched the upfront cost, too! Total cost over 24 months is £768

View this deal: at Affordable Mobiles

iPhone 7 32GB | £94.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 30GB data | £33 per month
This is our favourite big data deal on the iPhone 7. The price of the handset is more expensive than last month, but now it’s down to just £33 per month for 30GB data and unlimited everything else! Extremely strong if you need a lot of data or if you don’t “need” the data but would like a safety net. And bear in mind that going unlimited is way more expensive. Total cost over 24 months is £886.99

View this deal: at Buymobiles

iPhone 7 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited data, calls and texts | £48 per month
If you want to get an iPhone 7 with unlimited everything then this is the best deal out there at the moment thanks to the upfront cost being removed. As you’d expect, the monthly fee is relatively high at £48 but that’s actually very good value when you look at how much the other networks are charging for much less data. That all being said, with 30GB available for just £33 per month, the above deal is the one we’d go for! Total cost over 24 months is £1152

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deals hit an all time low £23 per month and FREE upfront

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deals hit an all time low £23 per month and FREE upfront

If you’re looking to buy one of the world’s best phones this Black Friday but want to keep your costs as low as possible, then we think we might have the deal for you – in our Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge review, we gave it the full five stars! And it’s now cheaper than ever to get a contract deal.

As part of Mobile Phones Direct’s Black Friday deals, the retailer has knocked off the upfront price of the Galaxy S7 Edge and brought monthly bills all the way down to a measly £23 per month.

At an astonishing £552 for the two year term, it makes the S7 Edge substantially less than the best tariffs on the likes of the iPhone 8 and Google Pixel 2. You get 4GB of data a month and will be on the Three network, which means you get the benefit of free coffees and cheap lunches from the network’s Wuntu rewards app.

And if 4GB isn’t quite enough data for you, with Mobile Phones Direct you can pay a couple of quid more a month to double the allowance. We have details of other Black Friday Galaxy S7 Edge deals below.
