The best EE phone deals in April 2018

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 S9. 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, Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus) 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 | £129 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £53pm
This iPhone X deal from Buymobiles works out cheapest on EE over the two year term of the contract at the moment, coming in at a pound more than £1,400 over the two year term. You get free Apple Music for 6 months and BT Sport for 3, as well as the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that you're on the UK's fastest 4G network. But with only 4GB of data, there are better value deals out there. Total cost over 24 months is £1401

iPhone X 64GB | £99 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £58pm
We much prefer this deal to the above cheaper effort, as you get tonnes more data and only have to pay an extra fiver each month. That's well worth it, considering the extra freedom you get to surf, stream and download away from the Wi-Fi supply. Total cost over 24 months is £1491

iPhone X 64GB | £89 upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £63pm
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 currently the best value deal we've found on that network for big data. 25GB of data should be more than enough for most people and you get unlimited everything else. Total cost over 24 months is £1601

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 | £94.99 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
If you want to jump on to the UK's fastest 4G network, we don't actually see much point in faffing around with lower data deals. It only costs a little bit more to escalate things massively up to this just-improved 20GB tariff, which is an extremely healthy amount of data to play with. We like that the monthlies are coming in under £40 and the upfront fee pips £100. Total cost over 24 months is £1006.99

iPhone 8 64GB | FREE upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £48pm
This is an iPhone 8 deal worth considering if need to eek even more data out for streaming and downloading. You don't have to pay a single penny upfront and the monthly payments aren't too bad. Plus, you get £36 from Affordable Mobiles automatically when you sign up. Total cost over 24 months is £1152

The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on EE:

OK, so the Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn't make massive strides on the S8, but that doesn't mean it's not still one of the premier Android phones on the market. The cameras in particular are awe inspiring and tangible improvements have been made to the biometrics and position of the fingerprint scanner.

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £200 upfront | 8GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £33pm
If you're not too put off by the rather excessive upfront price, this Galaxy S9 deal from EE has got a lot going for it. For a start, there's those delightful monthly bills. £33 is tremendous for a newly released Samsung smartphone. 8GB will be plenty of data for most people and you'll be on the UK's fastest 4G network. Plus, Mobiles is throwing in a free wireless charger worth £79.99. Total cost over 24 months is £992

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deal on EE:

Sssssshhhhh! Don't mention the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and its troublesome little overheating problem.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £69.95 upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £48pm
EE was struggling for a long time with big data deals on the Note 8, but this relatively new tariff makes the landscape look a lot prettier. It brings the monthly cost under the £50-mark and the upfront spend is no great hardship either. Total cost over 24 months is £1221.99

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 | £159.99 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 4GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £25pm
This is the cheapest way to get the iPhone 8 on EE at the moment, and we do like the fact that you can get 4GB of data for £25 per month. That's a heck of a lot to pay at the outset for the privilege, however. Total cost over 24 months is £759.99

iPhone 7 32GB | £114.99 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 8GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £30pm
If you're after the best value iPhone 7 deal possible on EE, then this is the one we'd recommend. The UK's fastest 4G network isn't the absolute cheapest at the moment, but we rather like the way you get a decent amount of data for £30 a month here. Good, but there have been better in the past. Total cost over 24 months is £834.99

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. And now that the S9 is here, it's no longer even that expensive.

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £170 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 1GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £24pm
Say hello to pretty much the cheapest way you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 at the moment. It costs only £24 per month to get the ravishing handset on the UK's fastest 4G network EE. S8s have been cheaper and we're not exactly bowled over by the meagre 1GB of data allowance, but this is still decent if you just want to pay as little as possible over the life of the contract. Total cost over 24 months is £746

cheap iphone se deals

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 | 2GB data | £23pm
If you want the cheapest iPhone SE deal possible with EE, then Carphone Warehouse has your back at the moment. £23 a month for your phone is really difficult to get upset about.

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 4GB data | £25pm
For so long, EE was the go-to network on the iPhone SE. But for the time being, its prices have gone up and other networks have got the better of it. It's still the network to go for if you want the UK's fastest 4G network though, and this is the best value tariff at the moment. You get a free phone thrown in...which is nice. Total cost over 24 months is £600

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. 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 | £9.99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
Frankly speaking, EE isn't a very pretty place to be when it comes to Pixel 2 deals at the moment. We've picked this one out because we like the fact you get change from a tenner at the outset, 10GB is more data than most people will require and no other network gets close to EE's 4G connection speeds. But we need a few quid off the monthly bills to full support this. Total cost over 24 months is £921.99

Google Pixel 2 XL | £79.99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm

But Carphone Warehouse is bringing back better times with one of the first tariffs we've seen in a while that has both decent data and a total two year cost of less than a grand. Plus, you'll be on the UK's fastest 4G network. Total cost over 24 months is £991.99
