The best mobile phone deals in May 2017
Compare and filter to find the cheapest mobile phone deals
On this page you can compare and filter all of the best mobile phone deals on all of the best handsets and from all the best UK networks! At the top of this mobile phone deals page you’ll find a price comparison chart in which you can choose your desired handset and find the very best phone deal for your own needs. Underneath that you can browse through our individual handset guides for all of the best mobile phone deals out there.
Whether you’re after the new iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8, a free phone, lots of data, the lowest possible monthly cost or all of the above, we’ll help you find the perfect deal.
Mobile phone deals of the month:
Our editors look at all of the available deals for all of the best smartphones at the start of each month and make a choice of what they think the best deals are. In this section you can see what we think are the best three deals for each phone, as well as a link through to the ‘best deals’ guide for each individual handset.
Get the cheapest deals for Apple’s brand new iPhone 7.
Samsung Galaxy S8:
Samsung’s only gone and improved on their best phone ever. Now with an even larger screen, no bezels and more power. There’s the even larger Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus if you need something closer to a phablet too.
LG’s new flagship phone has a longer screen with a rather fetching rounded-corner design. A fine alternative to the Galaxy’s Edge screen.
iPhone 7 Plus:
Get the best deal on the iPhone 7 Plus and its incredible camera.
Google Pixel and Pixel XL:
The Google Pixel replaces last year’s Nexus 5X, and is the smaller offering that comes with a 5-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 12 megapixel camera and a whole lot more. Meanwhile, the Google Pixel XL takes the place of the Nexus 6P as the larger, more premium, smartphone from Google.
Sony Xperia XZ:
The Sony Xperia XZ is a great premium handset offering everything you’d expect from a brand new flagship phone.
Grab the best possible deal on the still excellent iPhone 6S.
With all the goodness of the mothership Z5, the Z5 Compact is a bit smaller and we think it’s great.
Mobile phone deals on TechRadar: FAQ
TechRadar’s unbiased and independent mobile phone deals comparison
Thanks for visiting TechRadar’s mobile phone deal comparison page! Our price comparison system includes 2.47 million mobile phone contracts from all of the major networks and resellers so that you can always find the one that suits you best.
Unlike some other major sites, our philosophy is to always display you with the absolute cheapest deals for the criteria you select. So you’ll always be able to see the cheapest prices for the best phones with contracts with the most generous data allowances.
Are you looking for SIM only?
If you’re after a SIM only deal to plug the gap between iPhone launches or simply because you’re happy with the phone you already have, you can visit our SIM only deals page to find the best option.
How does TechRadar make money from affiliates?
If you buy a phone after visiting this page, TechRadar will be paid a small commission by the network or reseller you buy from. This money is paid by the site you buy from and thus does not affect the amount you pay for your phone contract. If you go direct to the site you buy from, you would pay the same amount.
The money that TechRadar makes from this free service allows us to improve our product comparison tools and pay the editors who trawl through all the sites and select the best deals every month.
While some sites out there will be paid larger fees for pushing people to specific deals that aren’t necessarily the cheapest, TechRadar will always find you the absolute cheapest deal. Trust and integrity is important to us, so if you ever think we’re not displaying the very best deals let us know.
How do we order these mobile phone deals?
Our mobile phone deal comparison tools sift through millions of different deals and surfaces the ones we think are the very best. Essentially that means finding deals that work out the cheapest over a 24 month contract while still supplying at least 1GB of data, as you’ve told us that 1GB is your absolute minimum. If you need more data, use the filters and we’ll display the cheapest prices for your increased amount.
On this specific page, we have many mobile phone options displaying in one comparison table. In this case, we try and find you a balance between paying the cheapest price and getting the best phone for your money.
How do the mobile phone deals comparison tools work?
The comparison tools you find on the page above will hopefully be very easy to use. You can select what your budget is, whether it be upfront cost or monthly fee or both. And you can say how much data you need or how many minutes and texts. You can even filter by network if you really want to be on a specific carrier. The deals will automatically update as you drill down in your search, always favouring the cheapest options over the more expensive ones. If you ever want to refresh and start your search again, simply select the ‘CLEAR ALL FILTERS’ option to begin again from scratch.
What is TechRadar?
TechRadar is Europe’s largest technology reviews website with over 22 million visitors every month. It’s our aim to provide you with the very best buying advice, always. If you’d like to read reviews of the mobile phones you see on this page, you can visit TechRadar’s reviews homepage .
How do we select which networks and resellers to display?
TechRadar strives to include all mobile phone deals from all UK networks and resellers so that you can search through all the available deals in the UK without having to look on all the websites separately. However, for sites to be included they need to supply us with a feed of their deals. This is the only reason why a phone reseller or network wouldn’t appear in our system but the vast majority do.
What is an ‘exclusive’ mobile phone deal?
Because thousands of people per month buy phones after visiting TechRadar, we are often able to negotiate exclusive voucher codes just for visitors to our pages. You’ll need to use the voucher codes at the checkout on the site we link to. TechRadar is never paid to promote these voucher codes, we only promote them if we think they’re genuinely strong deals against the current market. And we would always encourage you to shop around so make sure you’re always getting the best deal.
