Vodafone is one of the biggest networks in the world and one of the most powerful brands in the UK. Not surprising when they so frequently offer excellent tariffs on flagship handsets like the iPhone 8, Galaxy S8 and the market's other favourite phones.
Vodafone seems to go through fits and spurts when it comes to how competitively it's priced. It can go from the cheapest on the market, to absolutely terrible on our mobile phone deal comparison charts. It usually can't compete with Three deals when it comes to big data bundle. But if your data sweet spot is around 16GB a month, Vodafone frequently then becomes a lot more competitive with prices that challenge EE phone deals and O2 deals. And, if you're lucky, you may be hunting for your smartphone when its running a promotion where you get an extra 10GB for free.
If Vodafone appeals to you though - or if you want to bag a Red Entertainment package that gives you a year's subscription to Spotify Premium, NOW TV Entertainment or the Sky Sports app - then that's where this page comes in! We've rounded up all of the best Vodafone phone deals so that you don't have to, just take a look at TechRadar's bespoke comparison chart below.
The best iPhone X deals on Vodafone:
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 | £130.99 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £50pm
This is the cheapest iPhone X deal on the market over a two tear term. It's one of the only tariffs that manages to combine £50 bills with an upfront spend of less than £1500. For that, you get 4GB of data, which will meet a lot of people's surfing, Spotify social media needs. While calls and texts are completely uncapped. Total cost over 24 months is £1330.99
iPhone X 64GB | £39.99 upfront | 26GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £56pm
This is almost as affordable as the tariff above, only with an extra whack of data on top - 22GB extra to be precise! This Vodafone tariff is among the very best on the market for the iPhone X right now. Black Friday may have been and gone, but this deal doesn't make us miss it...too much.. Total cost over 24 months is £1383.99
The best iPhone 8 deals on Vodafone:
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 | £190 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 4GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £27pm
This If you simply want the cheapest iPhone 8 tariff out there (and frankly who can blame you) then our EXCLUSIVE voucher code with Mobiles.co.uk is the way to do it. Be sure to enter the code 10OFF to knock £10 off the price and then revel in the those ridiculous £27 monthly payments! It's the cheapest iPhone 8 deal out there. Total cost over 24 months is £838
iPhone 8 64GB | FREE upfront | 26GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £48pm
We've picked out this bigger data deal on Vodafone thanks to the absolutely free handset you get at the start of the contract. It takes the monthly spend up to £48, but check out all that data - the fact that you'll be getting 26GB every month is another great reason to get this. Total cost over 24 months is £1152
iPhone 8 256GB | £141.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £44pm
The iPhone 8 starts with 64GB instead of the the 32GB of the iPhone 7, but that's still not going to be enough room for the tunes, snaps and videos some people will want to store on their phone. This Vodafone deal is the cheapest way you can currently get the model with more memory - just a shame the upfront cost has gone up by £40. Total cost over 24 months is £1197.99
The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals on Vodafone :
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 | £150 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £36pm
Well this is certainly a whole lot better than the best Note 8 deal from Vodafone that came before - we really struggled to maintain a brave face over that one. But this is terrific and one of the cheapest ways you can own this phone on contact at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £1014
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £64.99 upfront | 40GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £54pm
If you need upwards of 30GB data each month, then Vodafone is your best bet at the moment. This deal gets you a MASSIVE 40GB - now that's a lot of Netflix watching and (admit it) Facebook scrolling to that glorious looking 6.3-inch screen without too much fear of exceeding your limits. It was free before, but now you have to pay a little upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £1360.99
Best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on Vodafone:
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 | £155 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £23pm
This is an extremely impressed S8 deal. £23 is as low as you'll pay for your monthly bills on this handset, and the overall two year cost is one of the cheapest out there - even though it has just gone up by £30. It's excellent value for a fantastic phone less than one year old from a phone manufacturer at the top of its game. Total cost over 24 months is £707
Samsung Galaxy S8 | £85 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 16GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £34pm
16GB is a stack of data to stream, surf and play with. And Mobiles.co.uk will knock a tenner off the upfront price if you enter our exclusive 10OFF code at the checkout screen. This is a decent tariff, but another one that's just flown up in price over the two years. Total cost over 24 months is £911
The best iPhone 7 deals on Vodafone:
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 | £115 upfront (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 4GB data | £23pm
So you like Vodafone, have settled on the iPhone 7 and want to spend as little as possible over the next two years for your smartphone. Well in that case this is the deal you need to opt for. It's one of the best iPhone 7 prices out there if you're prepared to spend a bit upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £667
iPhone 7 32GB | £75 upfront (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 16GB data | £34pm
Vodafone dropped out of the picture for a while as a genuinely competitive network on the iPhone 7. But this 16GB tariff from Mobiles.co.uk is a real show of strength. The balance between the upfront spend and monthly bills is a standout. Total cost over 24 months is £891
The best iPhone SE deals on Vodafone:
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 | £29.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £18pm
This all new low price on Vodafone just became available on the iPhone SE and we really like it. £18 per month is really good value and, although it's now £30 instead of free upfront, that's still cheap. Total cost over 24 months is £461.99
iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 4GB data | £23pm
£23 per month for 4GB data on the iPhone SE is a pretty decent tariff in its own right. But once combined with Mobiles.co.uk's £132 cashback offer, it's incredible. It's a bit of a faff to claim the cashback (you have to redeem it over five instalments over the two year contract) but well worth it in our view. Total cost over 24 months is £420 (after cashback)
iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 16GB data | £36pm
If you were here hoping to take advantage of Vodafone's mega 26GB tariff, we're afraid that's now gone. 10GB have been knocked off the monthly data allowance. But to soften the blow at least, Mobiles.co.uk will give you £50 automatic cashback once you're on board. And the phone won't cost you a penny. Total cost over 24 months is £814 (after cashback)
The best Google Pixel 2 deals on Vodafone:
Google's own flagship handset has proved very popular with people wanting the purist Android experience out there. The Google Pixel 2 is every bit the match for the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and you know that you'll always have the most up-to-date Android operating system. And the cameras can scarcely be matched by any other smartphone today.
Google Pixel 2 | £50 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 16GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £34pm
Vodafone proves itself over and over again to have some tremendous deals in this kind of data allowance ballpark. 16GB is a lovely amount to have every month and more than enough for plenty of surfing, streaming and downloading. It's only a bit of a jump in price from the best O2 Pixel 2 tariffs as well. Very much worth considering. Total cost over 24 months is £866
Google Pixel 2 XL | Vodafone | £199.99 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 4GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £27pm
Excellent news, the Google Pixel 2 XL has just seen a substantial price drop across the networks. And was Vodafone pipping the rest to the post with this cheap Mobiles.co.uk tariff. That's changed now with EE taking the lead, but that doesn't mean you should dismiss if your loyal to the red network. £27 per month is phenomenally low. And you don't even have to cope with teeny tiny data, as 4GB is pretty healthy. Total cost over 24 months is £847.99
