You can still get a FREE Nintendo Switch at EE this Black Friday

Buy a cracking budget smartphone on EE and nab yourself a Nintendo Switch console free of charge

This might just be the best freebie of Black Friday. Right now at EE, you can get a free Nintendo Switch console when you purchase an Oppo A72 smartphone with one of a set of EE contracts, starting at £35 per month. That’s one budget smartphone with one totally free games console thrown in.

As freebies go, it’s possibly even better than the free pair of Apple AirPods Pro Virgin Mobile is currently offering with purchases of the iPhone 11. The Nintendo Switch usually sells for around the £279 mark, which is £60 more than the Oppo smartphone in question.

The phone itself goes a long way to help make this deal appealing. Although it isn’t a well-known brand yet in the UK, Oppo is a notoriously good budget smartphone manufacturer, and the A72 is a cracking demonstration of how the firm gained such a reputation.

With four rear cameras – including a 48-megapixel primary snapper – the Oppo A72 can compete with some of the industry’s best value phones at both a budget and mid-range level. It has a 16-megapixel selfie camera in a small hole-punch notch embedded in a 6.5in Full HD+ LCD screen; a whopping 5,000mAh battery capable of charging faster than most thanks to the bundled 18W charger; and a mid-range processor that’ll run most Google Play apps and games without breaking a sweat. 

That’s an awful lot of phone for the modest sum of £219, or £35 per month on an EE contract with 10GB of data. For £2 more per month, EE also offers a 100GB contract – that’s effectively unlimited data for not much extra.

Throw in that free Nintendo Switch – a product that needs no introduction – and you’re looking at a seriously good deal.
