The best iPhone 8 Plus deals and UK contracts in August 2019

Apple's newer flagships are, well very expensive. So for those wanting to land a phablet sized iPhone at a lower price, iPhone 8 Plus deals could be the ideal way to go.

If you want one of the newest large screened Apple smartphones, but the price of the iPhone XS make you feel dizzy, then the 8 Plus will be the one for you. Especially with the new iPhone 11 soon to come out we can see this dropping even further in price.

So how are iPhone 8 Plus prices looking. On average, if you shop wisely (using our price comparison chart below) you'll save yourself around £300 if you go for this handset over the iPhone X. We've seen monthly tariffs as low as the £25 region if you're prepared to stick a wedge down upfront.

Still feeling a bit overwhelmed by these prices? Don't forget that iPhone 8 deals are also available if you'd prefer the smaller smartphone, along with the smaller prices. And you can save £10 on the upfront cost of any iPhone 8 Plus deal at Mobiles.co.uk by using the voucher code 10OFF at the checkout.

Cheap monthly bills on iPhone 8 Plus deals don't come around often, that's why this deal is such a gem. With monthly bills of £28 you're paying far less than average for this contract. The only downsides, the slightly higher upfront cost and the lack of a big data cap. Total cost over 24 months is £837

iPhone 8 Plus | Three | £49 upfront | Unlimited data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £55pm
Need even more data? Yes? Are you quite sure? 30GB is really rather a lot. You simply need unlimited? Well, OK then, you'll have to go with Three. Obviously this should only be thought about if your downloading and streaming habits are off the scale. Considering the fact that this deal is only £55 a month you are getting a pretty good price for this huge amount of data.  Total cost over 24 months is £1,369

iPhone 8 Plus | Vodafone | £63.99 upfront | Unlimited data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £39pm
Much like the Three offer above, this contract offers an unlimited amount of data. However, it comes in at a price way below what is offered on Three. How can this be so much cheaper? Your speeds are capped, meaning you will struggle with big downloads and heavy HD streaming sessions. Total cost over 24 months is £975.99

iPhone 8 Plus price: how much does it cost?

A mighty £699. That's how much the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus will cost you in the UK according to the RRP. That might seem like a lot but that's one hundred pounds cheaper than when it first came out.

Need more memory? Then your only other option is spending an extra £150 and grabbing a £849 256GB iPhone 8 Plus. 

If you opt to buy the iPhone 8 Plus upfront without a contract you will save money in the long run, but of course £699 is a lot of money to pay. If you can afford it though it the way to go once you pair it with a cheap SIM only deal.

Lacks the pizzazz of the iPhone X

This is the iPhone you want if you can't quite afford the iPhone X or iPhone XS Max. It's got the larger battery, same powerful innards and strong camera. If you don't mind the poorer screen, it's a good option - and the screen is still a beaut. And we prefer it quite a lot more to the regular iPhone 8.
