Believe it or not iPhone X fans...not everybody wants to remortgage their house to afford the latest and greatest smartphone. And while all the headlines scream and shout about expensive flagship phones, the likes of the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact are flying the flag for new mobiles that combine quality with affordability.
And while it may feel like phones are getting bigger and bigger (say hello to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8), the success of the Apple iPhone SE proved that there's still a huge appetite for more diminutive handsets. We can see why the small form of the Xperia XZ1 Compact is apparently so popular.
Although it's cheaper than most 2017-launched phones on the market today, you still want to make sure that you're getting the best price - whether you're buying on Black Friday or not. That's where we can be your best friend. We've scraped the UK's retailers and networks to find the cheapest XZ1 Compact deals around. If you're looking for a bargain, you'll find it here....
When you find the deal in our comparison chart (or handpicked favourites below) that you like and it says that it's being sold by Mobiles.co.uk, then make sure that you enter our exclusive 10OFF discount voucher code at the checkout to instantly save a tenner.
The top 5 best Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact deals in the UK today:
Below you'll find our favourite Xperia XZ1 Compact deals on contract from the UK's most popular networks - EE, O2 and Vodafone. But it's also worth noting that the handset's RRP is £499. If you've got that kind of cash lying around and ready to spend, it could cost you less over the two years if you team it with a separate SIM only deal. They start from less than a fiver a month.
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact | £40 upfront (with £10 off code) | 4GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £26pm
The price drop from Mobiles.co.uk on this XZ1 deal makes it the very cheapest price you can now pay for this affordable handset. It's an easy choice for O2 loyalists (as well as O2 newbies) - 4GB of data, unlimited everything else, £26 per month and a £40 spend when you use our voucher code. A brilliant price. Total cost over 24 months is £664
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact | £55 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 5GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £27.99pm
EE is the UK's fastest 4G network, which is reason enough for a lot of people to send their business its way. It also tends to be one of the most reasonably priced networks. It can't quite compete with O2 on the XZ1 Compact at the moment, but this is a very good bit of value for a healthy 5GB of data every month. Total cost over 24 months is £726.76
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact | £9.99 upfront | 12GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £29pm
Wow! This is an absolute barnstormer of a deal on the relatively youthful XZ1 Compact. A mere tenner gives you the right to grab this excellent smartphone for less than £30 per month with a very generous 12GB of data to stream, surf and download with. This is our top of the Xperia pops at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £695.99
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £37.99pm
Crank up the data, and this EE deal is very tempting indeed. Again, the speed of the network's 4G connection is one draw, but the really eye-catching part is that you don't have to pay a thing upfront. It's testimony to the strength of this deal that the £15 cashback feels more like an added bonus, than the main headline attraction. Total cost over 24 months is £911.76
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact | £44.99 upfront | 32GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £42pm
Fear not, Vodafone devotees. We haven't forgotten about you. But the red network comes into its own on the XZ1 Compact at higher data allowance levels. 32GB is an ENORMOUS amount of data to stream, surf and download with away from Wi-Fi. Much more than enough for most people we'd wager. And the balance between upfront cost and monthly payments is decent. Total cost over 24 months is £1052.99
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact review and specs in brief
Small in stature, big in quality
Screen size: 4.6-inches | Resolution: 720 x 1280 | Rear camera: 19MP | Weight: 140g | OS: Android 8 Oreo | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32GB | External storage: Up to 2700 microSD | Battery: 3300mAh
The XZ1 Compact has got that familiar Xperia design - simple and classic - but it really packs a punch and is perhaps the best small-form-factor Android phone on the market right now. It's a fantastic choice if you need a high-performance device you can use one-handed.
