Best Giffgaff phone deals for Black Friday: The best phone deals from Sony, Apple and Motorola

Giffgaff has some of the best savings around this Black Friday

Away from the usual Black Friday powerhouses like Argos, Currys and Amazon, Giffgaff has surprised us by offering some of the best phone deals around. Here’s a roundup of the best.
 
One word of warning before we begin: all of these deals require you to take on a Giffgaff SIM at the same time. This isn’t the same as taking out a contract, and can be cancelled immediately should you wish. Just bear in mind you can add a minimum of £10 to any of these deals.
 
So without further ado...

Best Giffgaff Black Friday phone deals

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact (with free wireless headphones) – was £529, now £299

This, without doubt, is the pick of Giffgaff’s Black Friday phone deals. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a fine handset, packing the same Snapdragon 845 processor as the best-performing Android phones released this year.
 
That alone would make £299 an incredible price (bear in mind the OnePlus 6T – our Snapdragon 845 value pick – goes for £499), but it gets better. When you buy from Giffgaff, you’ll get a free pair of Sony WF-1000x noise-cancelling earphones worth £180. This is my SIM-free pick of Black Friday so far.

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra – was £379, now £199

Sticking with Sony, here’s a deal that’s almost as good, but not quite up there thanks to the lack of free headphones. Still, if you want a midranger with a big 6in screen, you can’t really go wrong, as we said in our review.

iPhone 7 (refurbished) – was £349, now £299

For some people, smartphone means iPhone – and if you’re labouring away with an older model, this is a good way of getting a speed boost at a keen price. No, it’s not the best iPhone any more – it's been replaced by the iPhone 8, X, Xs and XR – but it’s still a decent performer and certainly looks the part. Apple still sells it for £449 new.
 
Word of warning: this is the iPhone that jacked in the headphone jack. So you’ll want a wireless set, or to get a Lightning adapter.

iPhone 8 (refurbished) – was £499, now £449

Same as the above, but a bit more modern – and a touch more expensive. Apple still sells the iPhone 8 on its own store for £599, so this is a bit of a bargain if you’re prepared to go refurbished.
 
Still no headphone jack, mind. Boooo.

Motorola Moto G6 Play – was £169, now £99

The Moto G6 series is a phenomenal budget pick and, with £70 off, the G6 Play is an even better buy. It’s not as good as its G6 siblings – it has a lower resolution, performance takes a hit and the camera isn’t quite as good – but it blows the sub-£100 competition out of the water (especially in the camera department). If you want a cheap and cheerful phone that runs a near stock version of Android, you just can’t go wrong at this price.
