iPhone 6 deals on EE

iPhone 6S 16GB | £100 upfront | 1000 minutes | Unlimited texts | 2GB data | £25.99pm
If you want an iPhone 6S deal for the lowest overall cost over the course of a two year contract, this is one you should strongly consider. It's just £100 upfront and then a positively bargainous £25.99 per month for 2GB data, 1000 minutes and unlimited texts leaving you paying a total over 24 months of just £723.76.

vodafone

iPhone 6S 16GB | Vodafone | £50 upfront | 3GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £28 per month
This is definitely the best iPhone 6S deal currently available on Vodafone. £50 upfront is about average but £28 per month for 3GB and unlimited everything else is definitely much better value than average so overall this deal comes out very very strong this month. If you want an iPhone 6S for a low cost but you do need a good whack of data to help you through the month, this is a good bet. Total cost over 24 months is £722.

samsung galaxy s7 edge deals

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £59 upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 6GB | £42pm (+ FREE Gear VR)
This is the Note 7 that Carphone Warehouse is recommending everyone buy - it's placed front and centre on the CPW homepage. It's a pretty good deal as well, when you compare it to what else is out there. It's only a shade more pricey than the 1GB deals on other networks so Vodafone is the network to look at currently. 6GB for £42 per month and only £59 upfront - it's as good as it gets in this early pre-order phase. Total cost over 24 months is £1067.

samsung galaxy s7 edge deals

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £194.99 upfront | Unlimited calls, texts and data | £50pm
If you want the very best phone out there and you want to let it loose on the world, you might want to go for an unlimited data plan. If that's the case, this is probably the deal for you as it offers unlimited everything for £50 per month and 194.99 upfront. This isn't a bad deal actually when you compare it to the prices on O2 and particularly EE but the Vodafone deals do make it look a bit much. Still, it's the best unlimited data option. Total cost over 24 months is £1394.99.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 | £159.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data | £38.49pm (+ FREE Gear VR)
The benefit of buying at Carphone Warehouse or Mobiles.co.uk is that you get a free Gear VR headset which softens the blow of the high cost just a little. Here you get 5GB and unlimited everything else for £38.49 per month. The upfront cost is £159.99 which is steep but there's no getting away from that at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £1083.75.

Finally, some deals that don't cost the earth for a little less data. Let's start at the lower end of the spectrum: in terms of data this is a good choice for those that value cost benefits a little less data brings. Over the course of the deal though you'll get a much better price, with 1GB being enough to get you through most months happily, and a much lower upfront cost than some other deals too. Total cost over 24 months is £739.99

Vodafone pops in with another top deal this month: if you need lots of data, this excelent choice from Vodafone and Mobiles.co.uk is perfect for you. You'll get 6GB data and unlimited everything else for just £32 per month. It's cheaper than the 12GB deal per month, but you do get less data - but then again, you'll still struggle to use it all up unless you're streaming a tonne of video. Total cost over 24 months is £868

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge | £88.99 upfront | 12GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £37pm
Another top deal from Vodafone this month on the Galaxy S7 Edge - and this is another great choice for mountains of data. Loads of bytes, the world's best smartphone of the moment, and it's not that much per month to spend either. This is a great deal for all those that really like to get browsing and downloading on their phone, but don't want to go for the higher prices of Three for the unlimited package - although the upfront cost is a few pounds higher this month. Total cost over 24 months is £976.99.

It's Three on the march in the best deals this month, offering a decent 4GB of data with this new fancy phone from Samsung. It's a slightly high £100 up front to get your hands on this, but overall it's a strong choice for that data.

There are some comparable deals from Three for 12GB (check our widget to see them in all their glory) but you're limited on minutes and there's an upfront cost too.

The cheaper 1GB Vodafone deals have disappeared this month so instead we've included this version with 3GB of data. That's probably for the best considering you'll likely need 3GB or more internet. It costs £28 a month plus there's now even £96 cashback as well. Total cost over 24 months is £576.

This is the big one right here. Here there's loads of data to be playing with on Vodafone for not a huge amount of money. We'd suggest checking out the Galaxy S7 if you're pushing up to this much per month, but it won't be free and you won't be getting the dizzying heights of 12GB per month to play with. While £216 cashback will make it even easier to go for. Total cost over 24 months £627.
