Phone Deals

Stay connected for less with huge price drops on the latest smartphone models. Whether you're after money off the latest iPhone or if you want to get the cheapest handset possible, we have them here.

Smartphone deals are hard to keep on top of, and often mean signing into a months-long contract. At Tech Advisor some of us are on contract while others go SIM-free, so we can appreciate both sides. The deals collected here fall into either of these camps (with some pay as you go thrown in for fun).

Phone Deals 2019

Phone contract running out? Simply fancy an upgrade to the latest iPhone or Android? No matter: if you are in the market for a new phone, now is a good time to grab a bargain. All the latest flagships are on sale, and there are bargains to be had. If you want to score a great deal on a smartphone, here's what to look out for. 

Smartphones: iPhone or Android?

With all due disrespect to Windows Phone and BlackBerry, almost always you have a straight choice: iPhone or Android. It is likely that you know which platform you prefer - both are full featured and easy to use.

Apple's iPhones are excellent but expensive, and they lock you into Apple's iTunes store. The best Androids from the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG are every bit as good as top-priced iPhones, and offer you more freedom to customise your device and sideload apps and media. And the range of price is much greater in the Android world.

Of course, that means the quality is also varied. Generally speaking you get what you pay for, but new handsets that were first released in 2014 are still plenty powerful enough, so you can grab a bargain Android. Also consider smaller brand phones in the Android space, although be sure to check our expert reviews before parting with cash.

Contract, PAYG, or SIM-free?

The other choice to make is on what kind of purchase you make. If you have the cash to buy outright it is almost always more efficient to go SIM free and grab either a PAYG SIM or a cheap data contract from the likes of GiffGaff. But not everyone has that kind of money to hand, and if you are a regular upgrader with a contract you can get good early access to new handsets.

iPhone users in particular may benefit from a contract phone, as the networks subsidise iPhone purchases as they know how popular are Apple's devices.
