Vodafone is one of the biggest networks in the world and by far one of the most powerful brands in the UK. Not surprising when they so frequently offer excellent tariffs on flagship handsets like the iPhone XR, Galaxy S9 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 pretty poor on our mobile phone deals comparison charts. Unfortunately, Vodafone seems to be going through one of its more expensive periods.
We've seen prices across devices rise on Vodafone lately, especially the bigger devices like the iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. However, there are still tonnes of great deals floating around, it just takes more searching and luckily we've done that part for you.
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.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus | Vodafone | £299 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited texts and calls | £38pm
For those who care far more about paying less on a monthly basis than upfront, this could be a great option for you. Dropping a massive £299 upfront cost, this contract knocks the upfront cost way down. It even offers a 30GB of data boost so you can surf the internet to your hearts content.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus | Vodafone | £50 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited texts and calls | £50pm

iPhone XR | £320 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 5GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £24pm
Until very recently, you could buy an iPhone XR deal with incredible monthly cost as long as you paid slightly more upfront. While this is still true, the upfront costs seem to have shot up. Now costing around £320 upfront and £24 a month, this is the best monthly cost available on an iPhone XR deal right now. Total cost over 24 months is £896
iPhone XR | FREE upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £45pm
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to iPhone XR deals, this one offers big data and nothing at all to pay upfront. But while those two factors are brilliant, that means you will then have to pay £45 a month, a fair price to pay for this device and such an impressive amount of access to the internet. Total cost over 24 months is £1080
Best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on Vodafone
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 | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £30pm
Similar to the £33 a month EE contract below, this deal offers up big data without any upfront costs. The downside of an offer like this is that much of the price is instead put into your monthly costs. We would say this is well worth the money though, especially for those looking for a Vodafone contract. Total cost over 24 months is £765
Samsung Galaxy S9 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £34pm | £156 cashback by redemption
Depending on how persistent you are, this could be one of the most affordable S9 deals out there - let us explain. It costs £34 a month but it also comes with £156 in cashback by redemption, that effectively means a monthly price of £27.50 if you're willing to repeatedly contact the mobile phone retailer at different times during your contact to get your cashback. Total cost over 24 months is £660
Best iPhone XS and 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 then it tweaked things a year later for the XS. Marvellous!
iPhone XS | Vodafone | £30 Upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 30GB data | £54m
Vodafone deals on the iPhone XS seem to come and go at the blink of an eye, one day there is an unstoppable deal, the next it's gone. This one has just come through so hopefully it will stay around a while. Brilliant data caps and upfront costs stand out as the best bits, with the monthly costs dragging this deal down slightly. Total cost over 24 months is £1,326
iPhone X 64GB | Vodafone | £40 upfront | 60GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £46pm
In the self-perpetuating ups and downs of Vodafone, this doesn't seem to be a very good time to get deals from them. If you're heart is set on a Vodafone deal then this is the one we would advise going for. £50 monthly fees is actually very affordable when it comes to Vodafone and you're getting an absolute tonne of data on top of it. Total cost over 24 months is £1,144
Best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 deals on Vodafone
Samsung has now well and truly put the flaming 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 8 | £40 upfront | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £26pm
For the best Note 8 deal on Vodafone - look no further. With 5GB of data at £26 a month this is certainly a good sign that Vodafone is finally becoming an affordable option on this device. You don't even have to pay a lot upfront, just £40. Total cost over 24 months is £664
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 | £125 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £30pm
For the best price on the Note 9, look no further. With monthly bills of just £30 and an upfront cost of £125, this is a deal that screams affordability - something quite rare for Vodafone these days. To top it off, you even get an impressive 15GB of data. Total cost over 24 months is £845
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 | £9.99 upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £37pm
Whether its the near lack of upfront costs, the big supply of data or the monthly bills below what most other note 9 deals are offering, this tariff is brilliant, so brilliant in fact that we can't think of anything better. Total cost over 24 months is £897.99
The best iPhone 8 deals on Vodafone
Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch, 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 | £115 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 5GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £26pm
This is currently our Editor's Pick when it comes to the iPhone 8 and it is clear to see why. With such a brilliant monthly cost its hard not to say yes to this deal. Yes, you do have to pay a bit more upfront but we think its worthwhile for both the good data and monthly costs. Total cost over 24 months is £739
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. And now that the S9 is here, it's no longer even that expensive.

Samsung Galaxy S8 | £67.99 upfront | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £26pm
Sadly Galaxy S8 deals on Vodafone seem to have collapsed, sometimes they're brilliant and sometimes they are the more costly options. If you're willing to pay a bit more upfront Vodafone deals don't get better than this, mainly thanks to the £26 a month costs that comes with it. Total cost over 24 months is £691.99
Best Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL deals on Vodafone
The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are relatively new devices on the flagship scene but they have very quickly become two of our favourites. Powerful processors, loud speakers, but most importantly they have what is arguably the best cameras you can get on a phone right now.
- Best Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL deals on all the providers
Google Pixel 3 | Vodafone | £40 upfront (with 10OFF) | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £24pm

After the slightly bigger than normal upfront cost you're greeted with some nice monthly costs and a strong data package. Total cost over 24 months is £800
Google Pixel 3 XL | Vodafone | £99 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £38pm
After a period of non-competitive Google Pixel 3 XL deals, Vodafone seems to be back on form offering impressive deals left right and centre - this is our current favourite. With some of the cheapest bills on this device, this is certainly an offer to consider on the plus sized device. Total cost over 24 months is £1,011
