iPhone 7 deals of the month

The best iPhone 7 deals on O2:

The new iPhone 7 is set to be another smash hit mobile phone 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, but there's an adapter in the box for your old cans, or there's a pair of lightning cable-friendly headphones in the box too. Memory capacity has been given a boost now, with the smallest models now starting at a much more robust 32GB.

Usually, you’d be looking at well over a grand over the course of the contract, but this deal sees the total cost over 24 months at £844.

galaxy note 7 deals

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deals on O2:

The Note 7 comes with 64GB as standard but has expendable storage options which means you can add up to another 256GB with a memory card if you wanted to. At the moment some sites are offering a free Samsung Gear VR virtual reality headset to use with the Note 7 when you pre-order which could soften the blow of those early pre-order prices.

iphone 6s deals

iphone 6 deals on o2

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data - £38pm (FREE Gear VR headset)
This is the cheapest Note 7 deal if you want to be on O2 and if 1GB is enough data for your usage tendencies. £99.99 upfront is a fair balance to strike and £38 per month isn't too bad. In reality, these prices will come down in the next month or two so there is a premium attached to these early prices. But if you want this phone right now, this is a good deal to go for. Total cost over 24 months is £1011.99

cheap galaxy s7 edge deals

The best Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deals on O2:

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a a good deal different to the S6 Edge we saw last year. It's bigger, it's better and there's a real reason to go for it over the smaller Galaxy S7. At 5.5-inches it's a little larger than the S7 but a tad smaller than the Galaxy Note 5 or the S6 Edge+ - it's the perfect size for those who covet the big screen but don't have the big hands to match, thanks to it being curved nicely into the chassis.

As we get higher in the data allowances, the cost starts to level off a little bit. This one comes in at £35 per month to get a decent amount of data - 5GB will be enough for most things you want to do with streaming and downloading over the course of a month. And trust us, you'll be doing a fair amount of that with this phone thanks to all its fancy features, so maybe look at the next deal up to be properly safe - and the overall cost is a bit lower despite the higher upfront cost.

cheap galaxy s7 deals

The best Samsung Galaxy S7 deals on O2:

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been around for a few months and is still the cheaper one of the 'best phone in the world' duo, with the S7 Edge a tasty - if more expensive - alternative. As is the techradar way we've found all the best deals from O2 and their partner stores online for this high end phone -and the good news is that while we were expecting the Galaxy S7 deals to be very expensive to start with, it's already come down a little in price - the UK market is very competitive, and prices do alter regularly. So if you're thinking about buying one it might be best to go early rather than wait a while – prices could easily go up in a few weeks.

OK, you're only getting a single gigabyte of data to play with per month, and it's not a free phone either - but if you're sold on being with O2 and want to keep the cost a little bit lower, this is the choice for you. You still get unlimited calls and texts, and the upfront cost is a little higher than before (but the lifetime cost is lower as the monthly tariff has dropped) - if you want a free phone, then you're out of luck though. Total cost over 24 months is £700.

Another decent deal for those on O2 - and there's not a huge amount to pay upfront either. Prices have dropped heavily for this phone, which is great, and you could argue that you'd be hoping for a little more data per month to make this deal more palatable (compared to other networks) - but overall, it's still a good bet for that extra little bit of data. Total cost over 24 months is £734.

For the data-hungry user, this is the best Samsung Galaxy S7 deal on O2 at the moment. It offers 10GB data for now just £40 per month and £50 upfront - while we're a little annoyed there's no free option at this level, for £40 a month it's far from terrible for 10GB of data, and the upfront cost is lower. It's a little more expensive than others on show here, but still a lovely little deal for the silver phone. Total cost over 24 months is £1010.

cheap galaxy s6 edge deals

The best Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge deals on O2:

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of our very, very favourite phones, even a year after its release. The curved edge may not have had much functional use (although it's been imbued with greater powers of late), but as a thing of beauty it's up there with the best. Those gorgeous looks of the S6 Edge don't have to cost as much now it's been usurped by the newer S7 Edge – so it's a good job that we're here to help you find the best deal for a phone that still packs in some wicked talents.

cheap galaxy s6 deals

The best Samsung Galaxy S6 deals on O2:

If you're interested in buying the Samsung Galaxy S6 then you aren't alone, because while this was the best phone of last year, it's still a brilliant handset to be lusting after. And there's a good reason the S6 is so popular – it was a ground-up reworking of Samsung's popular Galaxy S range. It features glass and metal, shedding the plastic of the older models and bringing the phone into the premium end of the market - something that's been improved on by the Galaxy S7, but you're still getting a lot of the great features here (such as the great camera) for a lower price).
