Best iPhone XS deals and 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 then it tweaked things a year later for the XS. Marvellous!

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | EE | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £30pm
Mobile Phones Direct has produced a Galaxy Note 8 deal so good that it's barely worth looking at any others -we think it even beats O2's best effort.

This is THE Note 8 deal to go for. Total cost over 24 months is £864

Best iPhone 8 deals on EE

Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch, the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat. Perhaps unfairly as it does improve 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 are avidly avoiding the prices of the likes of the iPhone X and XS try the 8 on for size instead.

iPhone 8 64GB | £23 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £36pm

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 the introduction of the infinity screen makes it the premier Android experience. And now that the S9 is here, it's no longer even that expensive.

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £31pm | £35 cashback
This overtook the lot as our favourite EE Galaxy S8 tariff with a bigger data allowance a few weeks ago and has held steady ever since. The price had been around for a while, but was offering only 8GB of data each month.
