Come on, we're all looking for the best way to get a decent phone deal. You could just walk into your local phone emporium, but how do you know you're getting the best value for money? There are loads of places to buy, but it takes ages to sort through the deals.
Luckily for you, we've teamed up with Uswitch to get you the best prices on the brand new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Sony Xperia Z3. Not to mention the slightly older Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), LG G3, and Nokia Lumia 930.
Our deals have two elements for each phone we're featuring: the first is one of the most popular of the week, with the most interest from consumers all over the UK.
The second is the lowest total cost of ownership, where we work out how much the combined total of handset plus monthly cost will hit the wallet over the duration of the deal.
It might not come with much data, but for a lot of people the thought of owning a Nokia Lumia 930 and a contract for two years for just over £500 is a rather lovely one.
Apple iPhone 6
We'd wager that the iPhone 6 is likely to be one of the most popular smartphones for a while, so we'll kick things off with that. Right now you can get a 16GB version in grey with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB of 4G data, following three months of unlimited data.
That's for the handset on Vodafone through mobilephonesdirect and it costs £39.50 per month. Normally there would be a £9.99 upfront cost as well but if you enter 'USW9003' at checkout you can avoid it. Over 24 months it adds up to £948. That's pretty pricey, but the allowances are quite generous too.
Cheapest Apple iPhone 6 deal
Let's face facts, you're not going to get Apple's just-launched flagship particularly cheaply, but nor do you have to pay over the odds.
Right now you can get a 16GB version in grey on EE with 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of 4G data for £14.99 per month plus £422.99 upfront.
That's through mobilephonesdirect and it's a lot to pay in one go but it comes out at £782.75 over 24 months, which isn't bad at all for one of the best, and most popular, smartphones on the planet.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus
We never thought we'd see the day, but Apple has released an iPhablet and it's really rather good. It's also really rather expensive. One of the most popular deals right now is for a 16GB version of the phone in grey on EE from mobilephonesdirect.
It will cost you £38.99 per month and normally there's a £219 upfront cost, but you can get that down to £149 if you enter 'USW9007' at checkout, so it's £1084.76 overall and for that you get unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB of 4G data on one of the most premium smartphones available.
Cheapest Apple iPhone 6 Plus deal
Even the cheapest iPhone 6 Plus deals aren't exactly impulse purchase territory, but considering how new and expensive this phone is there are a few pretty good ones. One of the best at the moment is for a 16GB iPhone 6 Plus in gold on EE through mobilephonesdirect.
It comes with 500MB of 4G data, 500 minutes and unlimited texts and will cost you just £14.99 per month, but you do have to pay £499.99 upfront. Over the life of the contract that comes out at £859.75, which considering the phone is £619 SIM-free isn't too shabby.

Samsung Galaxy S5
This week you lucky people can get a Samsung Galaxy S5 in white on Three, which comes with 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of 4G data.
This can all be yours for just £28 per month and there's no upfront cost, so over 24 months it comes out at £672, which is really rather cheap.
Cheapest Samsung Galaxy S5 deal
The above deal is certainly popular but there are even cheaper ways to get the Samsung Galaxy S5. The cheapest deal right now is for it in black, blue or white on giffgaff for just £7.50 per month.
It comes with 200 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of data. So the allowances aren't amazing and there's a pretty steep £440 upfront charge, but you can cancel your monthly tariff at any time, so essentially it's just £447.50, but even if you keep it for 24 months it's still only £620.
Given that this phone retails for £550 on Samsung's site (although is cheaper SIM free elsewhere) that's a pretty ace price.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha
While the Galaxy S5 is still Samsung's main flagship the company has now released a metal-clad marvel that seems aimed at the iPhone crowd. It's more affordable than the iPhone 6 too, with one of this week's most popular deals coming out at just £23 per month with no upfront charge, equating to £552 over 24 months.
That's for the Galaxy Alpha in silver on O2 through Mobiles.co.uk and it comes with 500 minutes, 500MB of data and unlimited texts. That's a great deal, in fact it's so good that it's both the cheapest and one of the most popular.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Samsung's latest is a phone of monstrous proportions and the price tag is pretty hefty too, but it's probably worth the money as our glowing review attests and if you shop around it needn't be extortionate.
For example one of the more popular ways to get it right now is in white, from Mobiles.co.uk on an O2 contract with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. That will set you back £33 per month plus £19 upfront, for a total of £811 over 24 months.
Cheapest Samsung Galaxy Note 4 deal
The above deal is a fairly good price already, but you can get the Note 4 even cheaper. Right now it's available for just £26.50 per month plus £73.99 upfront on a Vodafone contract. In all that will cost you just £709.99.
That's through mobilephonesdirect and the allowances are a little lacking, as it comes with just 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB of data (following three months of unlimited data), but considering the Note 4 has a SIM free RRP of £629 that's still pretty good.

HTC One (M8)
The most popular HTC One M8 deal of the week is for the handset in silver and comes out at £30.99 per month. It comes with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 2GB of 4G data.
That's available through mobilephonesdirect and it's for a 24 month EE contract. There's no upfront cost, so overall it adds up to £743.76, making it excellent value for money considering the allowances.
Cheapest HTC One M8 deal
The above deal is already great value, but right now you can get the HTC One M8 cheaper. The cheapest overall deal this week is just £18.50 per month with a steep charge of £161.99 upfront.
For that you'll get 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB of data, though for the first three months it gives you unlimited data.
That's for a 24 month Vodafone contract and it's available through mobilephonesdirect. In total it will cost you just £605.99. It's for the phone in grey and while the allowances aren't the best it's still great value if you can afford to pay a large chunk upfront.
