The best EE phone deals for Christmas 2017

EE is the fastest UK 4G network and for that reason many people want to switch to it. But you want to make sure you're getting the best deal when you do, right? So we've tracked down all of the best EE phone deals currently available, both direct from EE itself or from resellers who'll subsidise the prices for you. 

And the other thing working in EE's favour is that it frequently has the best deals on flagship phones including the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8. All the EE phone deals in our comparison charts are updated daily so that they remain current, in-stock and represent the best value currently available.

Still want more money off? If the perfect EE plan for you is offered by Mobiles.co.uk, the reseller is currently offering a further £10 off the upfront cost of the handset (except the iPhone X) if you enter the code 10OFF at the checkout.

The best iPhone X deals on EE:

Oh gosh, Apple went and did it. After years upon years of incremental upgrades, it finally made something special to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. For the iPhone X it has dropped the bezel altogether, while the 5.8-inch Super Retina HD is scarily good. And if you tuned into the launch event and liked the look of Animojis, well there's that as well!

iPhone X 64GB | £242 upfront | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £47.99pm
So long as you have the cash to splash at the outset, this deal from Mobile Phones Direct works out cheapest on EE over the two year term of the contract. 5GB is a decent amount of data to enjoy every month, while the monthly bills will scarcely be beaten. Total cost over 24 months is £1393.76

iPhone X 64GB | £176.99 upfront | 16GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £57.99pm
To make the most of the iPhone X's exhilarating power, it makes sense to team it up with EE's fastest UK 4G speeds. And this is the best value deal we've found on that network. 16GB of data should be more than enough for most people and you get unlimited everything else. Plus there's free Apple Music for 6 months and BT Sport for 3. Total cost over 24 months is £1568.75

The best iPhone 8 deals on EE:

Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch (see above for more of that splendour), the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat. Perhaps unfairly - it improves on the iPhone 7 with wireless charging and an improved camera. Plus, it's quite a bit cheaper. So if you're looking for the best iPhone but balk at the iPhone X expense, try the 8 on for size instead.

iPhone 8 64GB | £175 upfront (with RELEASE20 code) | 5GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £27.99pm
Well this is new! O2 has been so strong recently on iPhone 8 deals that EE hasn't had much of a look in. But this all new price is pretty much the cheapest that the 2017 Apple flagship has been to date. As long as you're prepared to sacrifice £175 upfront (£20 off the usual price thanks to e2save's RELEASE20 code) that is a tremendous monthly spend for such a new iPhone. Total cost over 24 months is £846.76

iPhone 8 64GB | £75 upfront (with RELEASE20 code) | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £37.99pm
If you want to jump on to the UK's fastest 4G network, we don't see much point in faffing around with lower data deals. It only costs a little bit more to escalate things massively up to this 15GB tariff, which is an extremely healthy amount of data to play with. Choose from Space Grey, Silver or Gold. Total cost over 24 months is £986.76

iPhone 7 deals of the month

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals on EE:

Sssssshhhhh! Don't mention the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and its troublesome little overheating problem. The awesome Galaxy Note 8 has helped as forget all about that little fiasco thanks to its vast 6.3-inch infinity display and razor sharp 6GB Ram. If you want the best big screen Android phone on the market, then look no further.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £175 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £37.99pm
With monthly bills now coming under the £40-mark, this 15GB tariff from e2save is really tasty. Go back a couple of months and this kind of tariff would have cost you a fortune. It now seems much more realistic, considering the sheer size, power and quality of the brilliant Note 8. Total cost over 24 months is £1086.76

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £90 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £47.99pm
15GB really is the sweet spot for EE on the Note 8. Once you go above that, things start getting really pricey. Of course you'll be on the UK's fastest 4G network, but EE can't compete with the rest on big data deals at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £1241.76

Best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on EE:

There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a fantastic phone.  The lightning fast chip-set and abandonment of a large bezel around the screen makes it the premier Android experience. It's expensive for sure, but there are bargains to be found... 

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £125 upfront (with RELEASE20 code) | 2GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £22.99pm
We saw some remarkable prices around Black Friday on the Galaxy S8 and the handset sold like the proverbial. The best ones disappeared momentarily, but this new e2save tariff is just as good as the cheapest prices we were seeing. No other network or retailer comes close at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £676.76

iPhone 7 deals of the month

The best iPhone 7 deals on EE:

The new iPhone 7 is another smash hit mobile phone from Apple thanks to further design enhancements. It's now waterproof, has a better screen and stereo speakers. The long-rumoured dropping of the headphone jack has become a reality. Memory capacity has been given a boost now, with the smallest models now starting at a much more spacious 32GB.

iPhone 7 32GB | £100 upfront (with RELEASE20 code) | 2GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £22.99pm
Previous £22.99 per month tariffs on this superb former flagship have required upfront prices nearing on £200. It's far less with this deal. If you're after the cheapest iPhone 7 deal possible on EE, then this is the one you need - the first even coming close to £650 for the two year term. The plan comes with unlimited calls and texts to add to the 2GB of data. Total cost over 24 months is £651.76

Over the last few weeks, we've been pushing a 5GB EE tariff from Affordable Mobiles thanks to the fact that you pay nothing upfront. But go for this one instead and the £90 splash at the outset means that your monthly payments are a fiver less. That works out at roughly a forty pound saving in the long run. Total cost over 24 months is £761.76

The best iPhone SE deals on EE:

The iPhone SE looks and feels exactly the same as the iPhone 5S. But instead of sporting two-year-old hardware it's been updated, with a faster CPU and graphics, and the 12MP iSight camera straight out of the iPhone 6S. It's a modern iPhone in the shape of an old iPhone, for people who like the old iPhones but want more up-to-date hardware.

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 1GB data | £14pm (after cashback)

Thanks to this phenomenal offer from Carphone Warhouse-owned Mobiles.co.uk, now is a great time to buy the iPhone SE.

The best Google Pixel 2 deals on EE:

Google's own flagship handset has proved very popular with people wanting the purist Android experience out there.

And the cameras can scarcely be matched by any other smartphone today.

Google Pixel 2 | EE | £90 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 2GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £17.99pm
Wow! This is an incredible price drop on the Google Pixel 2, which has blown the £600-over-two-years barrier into smithereens. You get 1GB of data a month on the UK's fastest 4G network. The upfront spend is perfectly reasonable (improved with our exclusive 10OFF code) and then the £17.99 monthly bills are simply fantastic for a phone this new. Total cost over 24 months is £521.76
