Best Huawei P30 and P30 Pro deals: The best contracts for Huawei’s long-awaited new handset

Huawei's latest phone is now in stores - here's our pick of the best deals

While it was far from flawless, the release of Huawei’s P20 Pro and P20 last year made us all pay attention to the Chinese tech company as a major contender in the smartphone market. Now, its successors, the Huawei P30 and its strapping sibling, the Huawei P30 Pro, have just hit shelves. As you can read in our full hands-on reviews of both, these offer a number of improvements over their predecessors, with the P20 Pro including a total of four cameras, one of which delivers an impressive 5x optical zoom.

As is the way with flagship phones that are fresh off the manufacturing line, you’ll have to part with a fair bit of cash for either the P30 or the P30 Pro but among the slew of pay monthly and SIM-free pre-order options available from launch you’ll find a few gems. We’ve listed our favourites below and ranked them according to various different factors: the amount of data offered, monthly outlay, and the upfront cost.

Best for low monthly cost: O2 with

We’ve seen cheaper monthly costs than this one from O2 but you get such piddling amounts of data with them that they’re not worth bothering with. This contract from O2 nets you 25GB of the good stuff plus unlimited texts and minutes for only £37 per month. You’ll have to cough up £199 upfront, mind.

Best for monthly data: Vodafone

Vodafone has a habit of offering excellent data-heavy deals and this 100GB monster is no different. Along with the beefy data allowance, you can choose from a two-year subscription to Amazon Prime, Spotify, Now TV or Sky Sports. The deal isn’t much pricier than the same package with the P30 if you’re still weighing up between either handset.
