This stonking Virgin Mobile deal gets you the 2022 iPhone SE with 150GB of 5G data and a Apple Watch Series 3 for £40/mth

As Virgin Mobile deals go, this is stunning: the four-star iPhone SE 3 (2022) with a huge 150GB of 5G data and an Apple Watch Series 3 (worth £179) for £40/mth on a two-year contract. If you want to pick up a current iPhone and an excellent smartwatch without breaking the bank, this is a barnstorming bargain bundle. 

As we explain below, we're fans of the iPhone SE 3's palm-friendly size, performance oomph and 5G compatibility, giving it four out of five stars. The Apple Watch Series 3 is similarly impressive, picking up five stars and a coveted Best Buy award in our original review.

However, as always with Virgin Mobile deals this head-turning, this amazing Apple pack might not be around for long so it's worth getting in there as soon as possible.

The iPhone SE 3 (2022) might be the most affordable smartphone Apple sells, but that doesn't mean it's a performance slouch. As we found in our in-depth review, the A15 Bionic chip inside meant it was faster than far more expensive Android handsets, including the market-leading Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. The iPhone SE 3 will stay speedy for years.

The camera is another area where the iPhone SE 3 bests its Android rivals, serving up crisp and vivid snaps in good light conditions. It can even record stable 4K footage. Its comparatively chunky bezels and 12-hour battery life result in our test are the only major downsides, but they're easy to ignore when you're getting so much quality – and data – for so little dosh.

Speaking of which, the five-star Apple Watch Series 3 was showered with praise in our original review, scooping a Best Buy award. We particularly liked its classy design, fitness-tracking features and waterproofing. It might be a few years old, but it's still a superb smartwatch.

And “second to none” is a good way of describing this Virgin Mobile deal: two outstanding pieces of Apple hardware and enough 5G data for even the most content-hungry users for a pitch-perfect price. Again, ensure you take advantage of it quickly to avoid disappointment.

You can see just how eye-catching this bundle is by stacking it up against the best iPhone SE 3 deals from the other mobile networks. And, once you've bought it, why not keep your new phone safe with one of the best iPhone SE 3 cases?
