Unlocked Sony Xperia 1 SIM-free deals

If you have the money to invest upfront, going SIM-free could be the better option. At a SIM-free price of £699.99, this falls on the slightly more affordable side of flagship phones but it still is nowhere near competing with budget phones. 

With that in mind it is well worth tracking down some cheap SIM only deals to pair with this phone.
