Where we've seen some of the best deals though has been in the mobile phone market, with some of 2018's best handsets, like the powerful Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, discounted by hundreds of pounds.

And, as we think we know a thing or two about smartphones, and especially the best on the market, we've decided to round up the very best Amazon Prime Day 2018 phone deals currently going.

Yes, there are definitely other smartphone deals out there right now, however, we think the following are the best, most value for money available.

Best Amazon Prime Day mobile phone deals

1. Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact UK SIM-Free Smartphone | £399 (was £529)

This is, simply put, the best Amazon Prime Day phone deal we've seen. That's because you can currently pick up the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact for a - considering the flagship-level specs - quite simply ridiculous price point. If you thought the OnePlus 6 and Nokia 8 Sirocco were affordable flagships then think again, as the XZ2 is currently retailing over on Amazon for just £399. That's a massive £130 price reduction, and saving of 25% overall. Remember, this thing has the same CPU and RAM as the Samsung Galaxy S9!View Deal

2. Samsung Galaxy S8 with 64GB microSD card | £439.99 (was £507.97)

Now this is a bit of alright. Samsung's powerhouse Galaxy S8 smartphone and a spacious 64GB microSD card can now be snapped up for only £439.99. Pre-Prime Day the price on this was £507.97, meaning that you get a £67.98 saving overall. In our S8 review we stated that, "we love the Galaxy S8. It's an incredible smartphone". Enough said.View Deal

3. Honor View 10 | £339.99 (was £419.33)

The 5-star scoring Honor View 10 blew T3 away on review earlier on 2018, and thanks to this most welcome Prime Day discount the handset can now be picked up for a very attractive £339.99, which is £79.34 discount. And, with T3 concluding that the Honor View 10 was a "a great all-round phone that is, without doubt, worth serious consideration if you are shopping with a mid-range budget", this is definitely worth your time if you are looking for a quality upgrade.View Deal

In the market for budget blower? Well this Prime Day deal should appeal if so. It lands you £70 off the stylish Wileyfox Swift 2 X, which retailed pre-deal at £219.99.

Pre-Prime Day this handset retailed for £239.99, so this is available at £40 less. And considering that we concluded in our review that, "it is simply impossible to ignore the super all-round package you get when picking up a Motorola Moto G6", we rate this deal very highly.View Deal

Another cracking affordable handset made even more so thanks to a sizeable Prime Day deal, the P Smart is a smart choice if you're after a solid all-round handset with a big 18:9 display. It's now 28% off at £143.99.View Deal

9. Honor 7C | £114.99 (was £169.99)

The Honor 7C certainly isn't the most powerful Android phone, with its 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage not really competing many of the other handsets in this list, however, with a tidy £45 off the asking price it could be the absolutely perfect second phone. Retailing now on Amazon for just £114.99.View Deal

10. Motorola Moto G6 Play | £135.99 (was £159.99)

And, finally, we have another lush discount on a top-rate budget blower courtesy of this Motorola Moto G6 Play deal. An Amazon Prime Day exclusive discount, the phone is retailing right now for only £135.99, a £44 discount from its RRP of £179.99. Quality budget phone specs, as well as a monstrous 4,000mAh battery, make this an attractive choice for a secondary phone.View Deal
