If you’re looking to upgrade your phone contract then Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great times to snap up a good deal, not only on a handset but on a contract too.

Apple fans will already know that iPhone 11 is the new phone on the block and, while it may be new, it’s already included in deals. If you’re camp Android then maybe take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, or if you just need something cheap and cheerful Nokia has seen a resurgence.

Carphone Warehouse, Mobiles.co.uk, Fonehouse, EE and Mobile Phones Direct are competing to provide the best contract deals. For SIM-free phones then Amazon, Argos, John Lewis and Very are all good places to start.

Mobiles.co.uk currently have some of the best offers on Apple iPhones, with the 64GB iPhone XR for just £33 per month and no upfront cost. They also have the popular iPhone 11 for £33 per month and £89 upfront.

If you’re looking for a top of the range Samsung, fonehouse are selling the Samsung Galaxy 10 Plus with 128GB of data for £43 per month with no upfront cost.

The Carphone Warehouse is offering a free Nintendo Switch Lite with select contracts and Vodofone is offering a free Google Nest Hub Max for new and upgrading customers on the Vodafone Together plan. Mobiles.co.uk are offering a free Google Home Hub with the select Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL contracts.

We’ve got an exclusive cashback code for you too. If you buy a phone on Mobiles.co.uk add BFPROMO10 at checkout to get £10 cashback. The code works on any deals on Black Friday up until Cyber Monday. Check out what phones are included below.

Black Friday Bundles

Nokia Tesco Mobile Black Friday early deal bundle

Tesco Mobile

Tesco has just launched this deal on Tesco Mobile. When you buy the Nokia 2.2 you get a free Juice Jumbo speaker for £65 when bought with a £10 top up. That’s a saving of up to £50 compared to buying the speaker and phone separately. The deal is exclusive to Tesco and will run for 8 weeks from 4th November, so we’re counting this as an early Black Friday deal.

The bundle also comes as a contract for £8 a month with no upfront cost for the handset, 500MB data, 250 minutes, and 5000 texts. Just check that’s enough data and minutes for you.

Vodafone has teamed up with Google for an early Black Friday deal for new and upgrading Vodafone Together customers. You get a free Google Nest Hub Max worth £219 when you get a Vodafone Together plan. Prices start from £47 a month for a combined 18 month SIM-Only and home broadband plan..

They’re also offering free AirPods with the iphone 11 starting at 1GB of data for £48 per month £99 upfront cost.

Are there any 5G Black Friday phone deals?

Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G

With 5G on the market relatively recently it’s hard to say whether there will be any 5G Black Friday phone deals. There aren’t many options either. EE does have the Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G phone for £119 a month. The 5G phones sit at the high end, so expect high prices still. Having said that the Samsung A8 was £10 upfront, with the phone included, 1GB data a month, unlimited minutes and texts for £24 a month. That’s a great deal and you’d have made a huge £160 saving.

Contract v SIM-free?

One of the choices you may be stuck on when buying a new phone is whether you go for a contract deal or SIM-free. On Black Friday there have been offers on both of the options so don’t let that sway you.

There are slightly better deals with contacts, which makes sense as providers want to keep you signed up. SIM-free still has good deals on budget phones and is still a good option for those looking for cheaper options.

SIM only Black Friday deals

There were plenty of SIM only deals on Black Friday last year. Three and iD had good options, so expect more of the same this year. Three’s unlimited data plan had its price slashed, and now stands at £20 a month, which you can sign up to now. It may go even cheaper for Black Friday…

Carphone Warehouse, EE, Mobiles.co.uk are also options to keep in mind.

Virgin Mobile SIM Only deal on now

Virgin Mobile has a few good SIM Only deals already. There’s the 12-month contract with 10GB data, 1500 minutes and unlimited texts for £10 per month (down from £16 per month). There’s also Virgin Mobile’s SIM only deal with 50GB data and 5000 minutes and unlimited texts for £19 per month (down from £25 per month).

What Black Friday phone deals to expect

iPhone

Apple iPhone XS

Apple

There will be plenty of opportunities to get a cheap iPhone deal in the Black Friday sales. Every year Apple knocks down the price of its older handsets as well as offering deals on its flagship phones. While the iPhone 11 is new there may be the odd contract to entice you. If you’re not fussed about having the latest tech then the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and XS Max are expected to be competitively priced, at least as much as 2018.

For those hoping to get last year’s iPhone XR or XS then we expect prices to go under £30 a month. If you want to go cheaper then your best bet is the iPhone 7 or 8.

Android 

Google Pixel 4

Android phones are more of a mixed bag. There’s bound to be plenty of Black Friday deals, from Google, Huawei, Samsung and OnePlus. We’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy S10 to have a few offers, but the Samsung S9 may be a better bet if you want a cheaper deal. The Huawei P30 Pro is a good choice for camera lovers especially with the ban in the US, it looks like they’ll be looking to shift more handsets in the sale. Google Pixel 4 may be new but if we look at last year’s deals the Pixel 3, which was new then, was in the sale with contract deals and free Google Home Minis.

The cheaper phone deals will be SIM-free based, so look out for the older Pixel, Pixel 3a and Samsung Galaxy S10e or the OnePlus 6T.

What Black Friday phone deals were there last year?

Samsung Galaxy S9 at Mobiles.co.uk on EE 

Unlimited minutes, 4GB data, £19 month, £150 upfront (£199 was)

This was a Black Friday exclusive. The S9 sold particularly well and the internet was flooded with offers and deals. This was one of the best, and, while it’s unlikely that the S10 will go this low it is a good sign for at least something near it.

iPhone XR from Mobiles.co.uk on Vodafone

100GB data, Unlimited texts and minutes, £50 upfront and £36 per month

The iPhone XR was still relatively new when this offer cropped up. This is a pretty great price, and would still be a great price if it was offered now. You’re more likely to get the iPhone XR for just under £30 if you wait until Black Friday. https://www.mobiles.co.uk/apple-iphone-11-256gb-purple

iPhone XS from Fonehouse on Vodafone

Unlimited minutes and texts, 100GB data, £149 upfront and £36 per month

While it seems pricey this is pretty good as a deal. Fonehouse offered 100GB data on an expensive handset, but the price stayed under £40. Expect the iPhone XS to go for even cheaper this year.

Google Pixel 3 at Three with Free Google Home Mini

Unlimited minutes and texts, 100Gb data, £99 upfront, £48 per month

The free gift in this deal was what swayed many to buy last year. The Google Pixel 3 had just been released so the price was a bit higher than the other handsets, but with a free speaker and 100GB included it balanced out.
