Best Black Friday phone deals: Contract

1. iPhone 11 with 100GB for £40/mth, free upfront (total cost £960)

This is one of the best iPhone 11 contract deals of Black Friday so far. £40/mth is definitely a bit of a steal, and the lack of an upfront cost is a huge benefit. Contract available on Three.

2. iPhone Xs with 100GB for £47/mth, free upfront (total cost £1,128)

Last year’s premium iPhone is still mightily expensive, but 100GB of data certainly softens the blow. Contract available on Three.

3. iPhone XR with 100GB for £34/mth, free upfront (total cost £816)

If you’re looking for a cheap iPhone that still cuts it in 2019, the iPhone XR is probably your best bet. £34/mth is very reasonable, and the overall cost isn’t too much higher than the original cost of the handset. Contract available on Three.

5. Samsung Galaxy A70 (was £369, now £329)

One of our absolute favourite mid-range Samsung handsets is currently available for a ridiculous £329. The gorgeous display and excellent triple rear camera are worthy of a much more expensive handset.

6. Samsung Galaxy S10 (£800, now £729)

This year’s Samsung flagship is also on offer for a healthy £71 discount at Carphone Warehouse. We reckon it’s Samsung’s best-looking phone to date, with a great battery and a stunning set of cameras.

7. iPhone 6S now £289

This is possibly the oldest iPhone worth having, and right now, it’s spectacularly cheap. Ideal for an Apple fanatic on a tight budget.

8. Pixel 4 (was £670, now £599)

An excellent saving on a new Pixel handset is a rare thing, but this £70 saving delivers. Google’s new phone has one more camera and a new design, but it’s the hands-free tech that really intrigues.

9. Pixel 3a (was £400, now £330)

If you love the idea of a Pixel camera – for cracking night photography – but don’t fancy forking out, the Pixel 3a is a great choice: at £330, it’s a genuine steal.

10. OnePlus 7 Pro (was £699, now £599)

OnePlus is renowned for offering flagship specs at great prices, and the 7 Pro is no exception, with a great rear camera and a clean Android UI. Now only £599.

Buy now from Amazon

11. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G (was £1,100, now £900)

5G smartphones are hardly affordable, but this is definitely the best price we’ve seen so far on Samsung’s own offering. For the record, this handset is well worth the price of admission, with better specs than the standard S10.
