One of the easiest ways to own a smartphone without paying for it upfront is by applying for a contract phone deal. A contract phone includes two key elements as part of the package. One is a handset of your choice and two is your bundle plan inclusive of your call, text and data allowance.
If you have a good credit score, handset selection is wide and varied. It will be easy to get approved for a high-end handset without hitch. If you have issues with your creating rating, however, you may be better off with opting for the cheapest mobile phones available.
To help you pick a good contract phone deal suited for your budget, we’ve listed below some of the best and cheap deals available in the market today:
Microsoft Lumia 535
Offered at Talk Mobile, this offer is a 24-month contract inclusive of 1000 minutes, 5000 text message and 2GB of data. Not only that but you also get £50 cash back. Tethering is also included, as part of the package and you’ll be paying £12.50 per month for all these.
Moto G 3 (2015)
Cheaper than the Lumia 535, this offer is also from Talk Mobile priced at £10 per month. The plan is inclusive of 500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 1GB data. £15 cash back and tethering are included. This deal is ideal for minimal users. It has enough allowances for a 24-month contract priced at a cost you can afford.
Apple iPhone 5s
If you’re a loyal iPhone user and you want an iPhone 5s, this deal from EE is quite affordable for £14.99 per month for a 24-month contract. The plan is inclusive of 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 300MB data. This deal is a little stingy on data but if you’re not going to browse often on your mobile anyway then this one is worth considering.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini
Another great offer from Talk Mobile is this Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini at £12.50 per month. Like the aforementioned deals, this one lasts for 24 months offering you generous allowances of 1,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and 2GB data. Tethering is already included in the package.
Samsung Galaxy A3
If you’re looking for something cheap like a contract deal at only £10 per month then this offer from Talk Mobile may be perfect for you. The deal offers Samsung Galaxy A3 for the handset while the bundle plan is inclusive of 500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 1GB data. The contract lasts for 24 months inclusive of tethering option.
Apple iPhone SE 16GB
If you can’t afford to get the iPhone 6S yet, you can always settle on Apple’s cheaper and latest addition to the iPhone series. The Apple iPhone SE may not be as feature-packed or high performance as iPhone 6S but it’s a great phone nonetheless. You can get it for free through an EE 24-month contract phone plan. The plan includes 300 minutes, unlimited texts and a stingy 300MB data. It will cost you about £14.99 per month plus £50 upfront fee.
Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB
If you’re willing to spend a little more, you can check out Vodafone’s offer. The plan costs £19 per month making this the most expensive option on this list but the Galaxy S6 for handset is more than enough an incentive for loyal Samsung users. Bundle plan includes 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data. It also comes with £50 upfront fee. The contract phone plan just like most contract plans last for 24 months.
