The best iPhone XR deals on EE:

The iPhone XR hits a sweet spot between high tech and reasonable pricing. It looks a lot like its more powerful brethren - both in appearance and on the spec sheet - and boasts a glorious 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display and A12 Bionic chipset without a £1,000 price tag.

iPhone XR | FREE upfront | 50GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £48pm
This has been the tariff that all the big retailers have been trying to undercut each other on. And that can only mean great news for you, because the total two year cost has already sunk below the £1,200-mark and keeps on getting better. Check out all that data, the meagre upfront cost and sub-£50 bills and rejoice to the God of phone deals.. Total cost over 24 months is £1,152

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.  And not to mention you can get the S9 quite cheap right now. 

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £230 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 1GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £15pm
Come. To. MAMA! This is the very first time we've seen the Samsung Galaxy S9 fall to a measly £15 per month. Naturally that pushes the upfront spend skywards, but it means that the total two year cost is down to £590 when you use our exclusive 10OFF discount code. Remarkable value on this 2019 flagship. Total cost over 24 months is £590

The 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!

iPhone XS |  FREE Upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 60GB data | £58pm
Now we know this may still seem expensive, but this is by far the cheapest iPhone XS deal we've seen. There are no upfront fees and £58 a month is incredibly cheap for what is one of the most expensive phones on the market right now, not to mention you're getting a massive 60GB of data with it AND on the UK's fastest 4G network.  Total cost over 24 months is £1,392

iPhone X 64GB | £199 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £38pm
iPhone X deals never have been synonymous with cheap monthly bills. So that's we we've dug out this sub-£40 per month effort by Affordable Mobiles. This is the cheapest way you can do it, so don't scoff too much at that £219 upfront spend. At least you get plenty of data, calls and texts with it. Total cost over 24 months is £1131

iPhone X 64GB | FREE upfront | 50GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £53pm
This has got three things going for it that we think is going to make it a very popular iPhone X deal indeed. Firstly, it's on EE - the UK's fastest 4G network. Then there's the huuuge amount of data you get to use every month. And last but by no means least there's the fact you won't have to pay a penny upfront, not even for delivery. Total cost over 24 months is £1272

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 deals and Note 8 deals on EE:

Samsung has now well and truly put the fiery memory of the Note 7 behind it. If the Note 8 was exceptional (6.3-inch infinity display and 6GB RAM), then the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is even bigger and better (6.4-inch infinity display and 8GB RAM). If you want the best big screen Android phones on the market, then look no further.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 |  £99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £48pm

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £36pm
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. The monthly bills, upfront price and sub-£900 total cost are extraordinary enough for this gigantic phone anyway, but when you consider that you get an incredible 30GB of data every month it becomes stratospheric. This is THE Note 8 deal to go for. Total cost over 24 months is £864

The 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 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £36pm
If you want to jump on to the UK's fastest 4G network, 30GB is currently the best value way of getting it thanks to this Affordable Mobiles tariff.

It's probably the best EE iPhone 8 deal out there in our view - a spellbinding mix of data, calls, texts and cost. Total cost over 24 months is £864

iPhone 8 256GB | £146.99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £43pm

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 | £50 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £15pm
So £15 per month iPhone SE deals are definitely now a thing. Although the incredible sub-£400 offer has now gone, this is now the cheapest tariff of them all.
