The best EE phone deals in October 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 retailers who'll subsidise the prices for you. 

And the other thing working in EE's favour is that it frequently has some of the best mobile phone deals on flagship models 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 retailer is currently offering a further £10 off the upfront cost of the handset (except the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Galaxy Note 9) if you enter the code 10OFF at the checkout.

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 - 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 | £49 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 Mobile Phones Direct tariff. The monthlies are coming in at £36 and there's absolutely nothing to pay when you sign up. It's 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 £913

iPhone 8 256GB | £146.99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £43pm
The iPhone 8 starts with 64GB instead of the the 32GB of the iPhone 7, but that's still not going to be enough room for the tunes, snaps and videos some people will want to store on their phone. This EE deal is one of the cheapest ways you can currently get the model with more memory and with the added bonus on being on the UK's fastest 4G mobile. Total cost over 24 months is £1178.99

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 | £160 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £25pm
If you've seen the low bill tariffs for the Samsung S9 that networks like O2 and Vodafone have been offering, we're afraid EE can't generally get as cheap. But this is a decent effort from Carphone Warehouse-owned e2save. Total cost over 24 months is £760

Samsung Galaxy S9 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £33pm
If you require 30 glorious GB of data for all your streaming and surfing needs away from Wi-Fi, then look no further than this Samsung S9 deal from Affordable Mobiles. The handset is absolutely FREE upfront and then it's a perfectly reasonable £33 per month. Tremendous value, and it just came down in price...again. Total cost over 24 months is £792

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 | £99 upfront | 60GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £58pm
Without spending astronomical sums upfront, we think this is the best value EE deal we've seen so far for the 64GB iPhone XS. It includes a mighty 60GB of data to use on the UK's fastest 4G network. The monthly bills are down to less than £60, and you'll only be burnt for £100 today. Very competitive to be on the UK's fastest 4G network. Total cost over 24 months is £1,491

iPhone X 64GB | FREE upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £53pm
This recently became one of the very cheapest ever iPhone X deals on contract we've seen - it's very rare to see that total two year cost dip beneath the the £1,300-mark. And that's not the only talking point here, as the monthly payments are pretty decent and there's absolutely nothing to pay upfront either. Good stuff. 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 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 9 | £84 upfront | 50GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £48pm
We know that despite what better value deals on this page might be, many of you are going to head straight to this tariff for your Note 9 contract. As you're probably already aware, EE is the UK's fastest 4G network, so ideal if you intend to stream a lot of Netflix and Spotify to your new Note. But the GREAT news is that this is probably the best Note 9 deal around anyway. Double win! Total cost over 24 months is £1,236

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £49 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £36pm
Ok, that's enough. This fight is over. Affordable Mobiles has produced a Galaxy Note 8 deal so good that it's barely worth looking at any others. The monthly bills, upfront price and sub-£1k 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 £913

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 | FREE upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £31pm
When this EE iPhone 7 deal hit Affordable Mobile's virtual shelves, it really shook up the scene on the iPhone 7. But that was when it came with 30GB of data per month, not 20GB. Don't get us wrong though, because a handsome 20GB of data for only £31 per month and absolutely nothing to pay upfront is still excellent value on a phone we still love. Total cost over 24 months is £744

If you liked the above EE iPhone 7 deal but were worrying that 20GB of data per month might not quite be enough for you, then how's this for an alternative? It's only an extra couple of quid per month and yet you get 50% more data - a very healthy 30GB per month - and £25 cashback. Total cost over 24 months is £792

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 | FREE upfront | 9GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £28pm
One of the cheapest ways you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 on EE at the moment, and you get a handsome 9GB of data from retailer Mobile Phones Direct. It costs only £28 per month and absolutely nothing upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £672

This just overtook the lot as our favourite EE Galaxy S8 tariff.  The price has been around for a while, but was offering only 8GB of data each month. That's been bumped up now by Affordable Mobiles to a bountiful 20GB, and there's no need to pay anything upfront either. Total cost over 24 months is £744

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 | £69 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. If you've inexplicably been waiting for the SE to get more affordable, your prayers have just been answered. It probably isn't worth waiting any longer. Total cost over is 24 months is £429

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 4GB data | £22pm
EE is the network to go for if you want the UK's fastest 4G network though, and this is possibly the best value tariff at the moment. There's a very enticing £96 cashback that you can claim, bringing the effective overall cost down to less than £450. Plus, you get a free phone thrown in...which is nice. It's a return to greatness for this network on the iPhone SE. Total cost over 24 months is £432 (after cashback)

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 20GB data | £20pm (after cashback)
This is a rather incredible iPhone SE deal from Mobile Phones Direct, if you can be bothered to chase the retailer around for cashback over the next two years. It totals a staggering £264 in all, which you have to redeem in five chunks during the contract. But, as you can see, the result is a low low rate for a fantastic 20GB of data each month. Total cost over 24 months is £480 (after cashback)
