With all of the same features as the S10 with a few cutbacks, this is a high-end phone with mid-range pricing.

Samsung Galaxy S10e | FREE upfront | 50GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £43pm

This is an excellent plan from mobile retailer Fonehouse. While the monthly bills are higher than on some other tariffs, the upfront cost disappears entirely and the 50GB of data more than warrants the price tag. Total cost over 24 months is £1,032
Best iPhone XR deals on EE
The iPhone XR hits a sweet spot between high tech and reasonable pricing. It looks a lot like its more powerful brethren – both in appearance and on the spec sheet – and boasts a glorious 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display and A12 Bionic chipset without a £1,000 price tag.

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. And not to mention you can get the S9 quite cheap right now.

The handset is incredibly cheap upfront and then it’s a perfectly reasonable £33 per month. Tremendous value overall. Total cost over 24 months is £792
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 | £714.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £18pm
This deal is all about the bills (monthly, not dollar). This is the current best £18p/m contract. We know it won’t appeal to everybody – that costly upfront spend and relative lack of data will put many off – but if you’re committed to the XS and have the £720-odd to part with then you’ll be grateful in the long run. Only £18 per month for a phone like this is just a little bit absurd. Total cost over 24 months is £1,149.99
iPhone X 64GB | £89 upfront | 50GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £43pm
If you’re a fan of EE then you can stop your search right here. This is the best deal we’ve seen on the iPhone X right now and no one else is beating it. £43 upfront and just under £90 upfront is already a good price for this phone but then you chuck in the 50GB of data and you’re all good. Total cost over 24 months is £1,121
Best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 deals on EE
Samsung has now well and truly put the fiery 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 | £379 upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £25pm
This is a bit of a wildcard when it comes to Note 9 deals but if you have some money saved up it could be the perfect option. This deal gets you some incredibly low £25 a month bills and a strong 4GB of data. The one catch? You have to pay £379 upfront to get it. If you’re willing to pay that upfront cost, you’ll be set with cheap monthly costs from then on. Total cost over 24 months is £979
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 | £50 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £38pm

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 as it does improve 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 are avidly avoiding the prices of the likes of the iPhone X and XS try the 8 on for size instead.
iPhone 8 64GB | £25 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £33pm

Best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on EE

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £31pm | £50 cashback
This overtook the lot as our favourite EE Galaxy S8 tariff with a bigger data allowance a few weeks ago and has held steady ever since. The price had 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. There’s even £50 cashback in it for you, too. Total cost over 24 months is £709 (after cashback)
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 | £9.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £18pm
A very recent price rise on the iPhone SE just took out our favourite SE deal – £15 a month, no upfronts. If you were looking for the cheapest iPhone SE contract this is the next best option. £18 a month and £9.99 upfront keeps this in the field of affordable phone contracts. Total cost over is 24 months is £360

Best Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL deals on EE
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.
Google Pixel 3 | £165 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £22pm
We really love this tariff from Mobiles.co.uk. it pretty much ticks every single box. Firstly, it’s on the UK’s fastest 4G network, EE. Great start! The monthly costs are excellent and 4GB data is a healthy place to be alongside unlimited calls and texts. The only pain is the steep upfront cost, but even that’s soothed by our exclusive 10OFF voucher code. Total cost over 24 months is £693
Google Pixel 3 | £89 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 9GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £28pm
Dammit. This used to be our Editor’s Pick deal, but now Mobiles.co.uk has gone and raised the price by over £100. At any other time, we’d be ranting about just how good this offer is, but in context of how Pixel 3 prices have now got, it almost feels disappointing. Almost. Total cost over 24 months is £761
Google Pixel 3 XL | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £43pm
If you were hoping for the Google Pixel 3 XL on EE, this is the best deal you’ll get. No upfront costs (hooray!) and just £43 a month puts this firmly in the price brackets of a good deal when it comes to the Pixel 3 XL. And not to mention, 30GB of data is a big plus. It’s good, but still can’t quite mix it with the O2 for sheer value right now. Total cost over 24 months is £1,032
