The Black Friday period is arguably the best time of the year to pick up a new smartphone. With prices slashed across the board, this is a prime opportunity to get a great deal on a device you'll probably use every day for the next two years. 

If you're looking to buy the Sony Xperia 5 outright, Amazon is now selling it SIM-free for £529. That's the cheapest it's ever been, slashing £170 off the RRP. Buy the Sony Xperia 5 from Amazon.

Vodafone are also offering a superb deal, offering the Xperia 5 and a FIFA 20 PS4 bundle when you buy the phone on contract. 

Plans start from £36 per month, with just £9 in upfront costs. In return, you'll get unlimited data, minutes and texts, as well as free roaming in 48 countries around the world.

If that's not enough, stepping up to £44pm means you can choose from a subscription to Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, Now TV or Sky Sports (on mobile devices) for the complete duration of your contract. This is in addition to all the benefits of the cheaper plan, while both options are 5G-ready once the new technology receives a full rollout.

Don't worry though, the console and game will be yours to keep forever! You probably know all about the PS4 already, but pairing it with FIFA 20 should keep football fans entertained for hours. Of course, there plenty of other great games out there, as you can see in our round-up.

Designed to be a pocketable flagship, the Sony Xperia 5 it aims to include everything great about the Xperia 1 in a much more compact package. It has a stunning screen, great stereo speakers and an excellent array of cameras. 

Our main gripe with the phone in our review was the price; at £699 we didn't feel it offered particularly good value for money. 

However, these deals make it a much more credible option. At £529 it's genuinely competitive as opposed to being overshadowed by other similarly priced handsets.
