O2 deals don't get much better than this: the iPhone 12 mini with unlimited 5G data for £52/mth, plus a free Nintendo Switch OLED

As O2 deals go, this is outstanding: the five-star iPhone 12 mini with unlimited 5G data for £52/mth (£25 upfront) on a two-year contract, plus a Nintendo Switch OLED worth £310 via Mobile Phones Direct. That's a staggering saving and here's the proof: you'll be paying £1,273 during the lifetime of this deal, while two years of unlimited O2 data (£720) and the 64GB version of the iPhone 12 mini (£579) would set you back £1,299 on their own. That means you're getting the impressive Nintendo Switch entirely for free, with £26 left over. Phew!

The iPhone 12 mini might belong to the previous generation, but it's still a stellar all-round smartphone with 5G compatibility, while the vivid Nintendo Switch OLED was the worthy recipient of a Recommended award in our review. If you've always coveted the nifty handheld console, now's the perfect time to take the plunge.

This is our pick of the O2 deals at the moment and buying via the third-party site Mobile Phones Direct couldn't be easier, with no hidden extra costs or redemption processes to negotiate. As always, get in there quickly while stocks last.

It's fair to say that the iPhone 12 mini blew us away when we first got our hands on it. We showered it with five stars out of five and a Recommended award for its compact, pocket-friendly design, internals that make it as fast as far pricier Android rivals and brilliant twin-camera array.

The phone's comparatively short battery life of 14hrs 28mins in our tests was a sticking point, but it's easy to look past that and, in the words of our review, “there’s nothing quite like the iPhone 12 mini”. And that holds true a generation later: our main criticism of the newer iPhone 13 mini was that it isn't much of an upgrade on its predecessor. 

Meanwhile, the complimentary Nintendo Switch OLED offers some thoughtful tweaks to the original console that took the world by storm. It boasts a crisp, 7in OLED display that makes brings the best out of games, a sturdy kickstand that you can use to prop the Switch up and a new dock. To quote our original review, “the Switch OLED is absolutely the best way to play Nintendo games on the go”.

As you've probably guessed, we're very excited about this O2 deal: not only are you getting an exceptional smartphone with bottomless data (and free roaming in Europe, which isn't a given nowadays), but also the best handheld console money can buy for free. Once again, it won't be around forever so get in there quickly.
