The biggest discounted shopping event of the year is just around the corner and if you're set to upgrade, you landed on the right page.

Android Mobile Phones

Monthly contracts

Carphone Warehouse exclusive latest Huawei P20 family offers are live. You can grab a P20 128 GB variant with 16GB of 4G data paired with unlimited texts and calls on O2 network for £32 pm. With no upfront cost, this deal will set you back for £768 total cost over 24 months contract.

The P20 Pro 128GB variant is for £100 more in total cost. With £50 upfront cost and £34 pm you get the same package on O2 and 6.1-inch phone with OLED panel and 4000mAh battery is yours.

If there's never enough data for you and you where waiting for Pixel 3 Black Friday sales, then the offer from Three is just for you. When you buy a Google Pixel 3 64 GB on Three you will get a whooping 100GB of data, unlimited minutes and texts for £48 pm over 24 months and £99 upfront + free Google Home Mini smartspeaker.

Carphone Warehouse is offering the Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB with O2 (the 16GB data, unlimited calls and texts) for £32 pm over 24 months. Paying £10 upfront, this bundle will cost you £778.

We spotted a super bundle with Virgin Media - Xperia XA2 for £19 a month over 3 year contract with no upfront cost. This includes a free PS4, FIFA19 and monthly plan with 1GB of data, 1000 minutes and unlimited texts.

EE has a great Nokia 7.1 32GB offer with a FREE Nintendo Switch. For a monthly payment of £43 over 24 months the plan includes 10GB of 4G data, unlimited texts and minutes and free access to the BT Sport app for 3 months. The offer ends in 3 days and the bundle is available while Nintendo Switch Stock lasts.

SIM free

Pixel 3 XL 64GB and Pixel 3 64GB, both available with 5% discount on Google Store.

Direct deals from Samsung are definitely worth it as Samsung offers generous price cuts on its latest devices. Galaxy S8 for £449, S8 Plus for £539, S9 for £599 and S9 Plus £769 SIM free. The Galaxy Note 9 128 GB is available for £799 (was £899) outright.

If you're more into budget phones then Motorola G6 64GB offer on Amazon will save you £43. The SIM free deal price for 5.7- inch device running Android 8.0 is £196.


Monthly contracts

Apple's iPhone 8 might be a year old, but A11 Bionic chip will make sure you won't notice it. Virgin Mobile offers an iPhone 8 64GB for £24 and no upfront cost. The deal includes a plan with 1GB of data, 1000 minutes and unlimited texts over 36 months and will set you back for £864 in total. If you want 2x data, the monthly cost will only go up to £26. That's the cheapest deal we spotted with no upfront payments needed.

The iPhone XR 64 GB deal we found on is a bargain. Paying £340 upfront and £30 pm over 2 years, you get 16GB of data and unlimited texting and calling with O2. This offer will cost you £1060 in total, but if you use code OMD50 at the checkout £50 off (limited time offer). Cheaper than directly with O2, but you need to act fast.

SIM free iPhone X 64 GB Buy Now Pay Later deal looks good. You get the last year's iPhone for £320 less with code N77PP. Offer ends on November 22nd.

Meanwhile there are not so many juicy iPhone deals, Apple announced it will host its own Black Friday - Cyber Monday shopping event, so it's worth not being in a hurry and check deals available directly from Apple.

Other tech

Laptops Direct have New Apple MacBook Pro (2018) on offer that will save you £590. 15 Inch MacBook with Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, Touch Bar and running latest macOS Sierra will cost you £1699.97.

Apple rarely discounts its products and spotting an iPad on sale is like winning a tech jack pot. At John Lewis Apple's iPad 9.7 (2018) 32 GB is on offer for £299, saving you £20.

Amazon is going all in this Black Friday. Huawei Mediapad M5 8-inch, Android alternative to iPad Mini 4, is for £219.99 on Amazon and will save you sweet £80.

This year Black Friday isn't that rich on iPhone deals which is weird as Apple is struggling to sell its XS lineup, so we were hoping to spot early deals, but it's not Black Friday yet, so we'll keep an eye. Let us know if you have found a bargain for yourself and don't miss #GreenTuesday on 27th of November to return the tech you're replacing.
