The best Sony Xperia XZ Premium deals in October 2017

When the Sony Xperia XZ Premium hit the shelves earlier in the year, it massively impressed us with its scintillating 4K display to its beguiling slow motion camera. What didn't impress us was the price, which came in only a shade under the steep Samsung Galaxy S8 prices.

Xperia XZ Premium deals got gradually cheaper in the months that followed, but in the last few weeks prices have dropped nicely - probably thanks to the arrivals of the iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8. Take a look at our price comparison tool below and you'll see that you can now grab an XZ Premium for less than £800 over the course of your two year contract.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a bonafide hit and a genuine step up from the XZ. Not only is this handset a must for dyed-in-the-wool Sony mobile fans, it's also a fantastic option for anybody looking for a flagship Android phone, so use our chart to pick out your perfect deal. It refreshes several times a day to ensure that we source only the best deals, whether you're buying on Black Friday or any other time of the year. 

Below that, we've handpicked some of the deals that have really caught our eye, from the likes of EE, O2, Vodafone and Three.

Top Sony Xperia XZ Premium deals this month

As you can probably guess from the name, the XZ Premium isn't exactly a budget phone. But the recent price drop does make it a lot more tempting now. Especially if you were to compare it side-by-side with the prices we're expecting to see from the imminent arrival of the iPhone X!

Sony Xperia XZ Premium | £140 upfront (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data | £27pm
If you're looking to combine the brilliance of the XZ Premium with the benevolence of O2's Priority reward scheme, then this remains the best tariff to go for. This tariff snaffles you 3GB of internet for less money than any other deals can manage. Total cost over 24 months: £788

iPhone 5S deals on EE

Sony Xperia XZ Premium | £116.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 8GB data | £32.99pm
If you need more data than a mere 3GB, then prices begin to rise quite rapidly. But this EE deal is well worth a look, as long as you don't mind paying £100+ upfront. If you're concerned that the amount of streaming and downloading that you do away from Wi-Fi will push you over your limit on the cheapest deals, then go for this instead. Total cost over 24 months: £909.75

Three

Sony Xperia XZ Premium | £94.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 12GB data | £36 per month
If you can stretch to almost £100 upfront, you can quadruple the amount of data you get with Three and still pay the same respectable £36 monthly bills. 12GB is ideal if you're an avid social media user or video streamer away from the Wi-Fi. One for the commuters, this. Total cost over 24 months: £958.99

Sony Xperia XZ Premium | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 60GB data | £48 per month
Goodness gracious, this is an ENORMOUS amount of data. If you're somebody who usually insists on getting an unlimited plan, then 60GB should easily still be more than enough for the vast majority of smartphone users. Just a shame that the price just went up about £40. Total cost over 24 months: £1251.99

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review

An Xcellent smartphone from Sony

Screen size: 5.46-inches | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | Rear camera: 19MP | Weight: 195g | OS: Android 7 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 3230mAh

Stunning 4K display
Superb camera
Surprisingly decent battery
Design not as premium as some

Premium isn't merely a name when it comes to Sony's expensive new flagship phone. The awesome 4K display and jaunty slow motion camera are just two great examples why the tech giant is charging top dollar for this mobile. If it's a big, fancy phone you're after, you won't be disappointed by the Xperia XZ Premium.
