EE is the fastest UK 4G network and for that reason many people want to switch to it. But you want to make sure you're getting the best deal when you do, right? So we've tracked down all of the best EE phone deals currently available, both direct from EE itself or from resellers who'll subsidise the prices for you.
And the other thing working in EE's favour is that it frequently has the best deals on flagship phones including the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S9. All the EE phone deals in our comparison charts are updated daily so that they remain current, in-stock and represent the best value currently available.
Still want more money off? If the perfect EE plan for you is offered by Mobiles.co.uk, the reseller is currently offering a further £10 off the upfront cost of the handset (except the iPhone X, Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus) if you enter the code 10OFF at the checkout.
The best 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 if you tuned into the launch event and liked the look of Animojis, well there's that as well!
iPhone X 64GB | £121 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £58pm
This iPhone X deal from Affordable Mobiles works out cheapest on EE over the two year term of the contract at the moment. That doesn't mean it's cheap though - prices on EE have just shot through the roof. But at least you still get free Apple Music for 6 months and BT Sport for 3. Total cost over 24 months is £1513
iPhone X 64GB | £99.99 upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £63pm
To make the most of the iPhone X's exhilarating power, it makes sense to team it up with EE's fastest UK 4G speeds. And this is currently the best value deal we've found on that network for big data. 25GB of data should be more than enough for most people and you get unlimited everything else. Total cost over 24 months is £1611.99
The best iPhone 8 deals on EE:
Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch (see above for more of that splendour), the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat. Perhaps unfairly - it improves 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 balk at the iPhone X expense, try the 8 on for size instead.
iPhone 8 64GB | £50 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £39pm
This is the cheapest way you can get the iPhone 8 on EE at the moment. So if you like the idea of the UK's fastest 4G network but don't tend to stray from the Wi-Fi too much, this 1GB tariff could be the ideal fit. Total cost over 24 months is £986
iPhone 8 64GB | £75 upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
If you want to jump on to the UK's fastest 4G network, we don't actually see much point in faffing around with lower data deals. It only costs a little bit more to escalate things massively up to this jus-improved 20GB tariff, which is an extremely healthy amount of data to play with. We like that the monthlies are coming in under £40 and the upfront fee has come down to a very reasonable £75. Total cost over 24 months is £987
iPhone 8 64GB | FREE upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £48pm
This is an iPhone 8 deal worth considering if need to eek even more data out for streaming and downloading. You don't have to pay a single penny upfront and the monthly payments aren't too bad. Plus, you get a free portable battery pack from Direct Mobiles if you enter the code TECHPOWER at the checkout. Total cost over 24 months is £1152
The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deal on EE:
Sssssshhhhh! Don't mention the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and its troublesome little overheating problem. The awesome Galaxy Note 8 has helped as forget all about that little fiasco thanks to its vast 6.3-inch infinity display and razor sharp 6GB Ram. If you want the best big screen Android phone on the market, then look no further.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £109.99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £43pm
This is the cheapest way you can buy the Galaxy Note 8 on EE at the moment. 10GB is a pleasant amount of data to have on the go each month and there's unlimited everything else. The monthly bills of £43 are around the lowest you'll see without having to splash £200+ upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £1142.99
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | £69.95 upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £48pm
EE was struggling for a long time with big data deals on the Note 8, but this relatively new tariff makes the landscape look a lot prettier. It brings the monthly cost under the £50-mark and the upfront spend is no great hardship either. Plus, we have an exclusive offer going with Direct Mobiles whereby you get a free 3000mAh portable battery charger if you enter the code TECHPOWER at the checkout.. Total cost over 24 months is £1221.99
Best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on EE:
There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a fantastic phone. The lightning fast chip-set and abandonment of a large bezel around the screen makes it the premier Android experience. And now that the S9 is hear, it's not even that expensive any longer.
Samsung Galaxy S8 | £200 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 2GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £23pm
If you like the idea of seeing a ridiculously low amount on your bill for the next 24 months, then this is the tariff for you. It used to be among the best ever S8 deals, but has recently inflated by around £100 at the outset. That makes it much less appealing, but...well, did we mention those bills? Total cost over 24 months is £752
Samsung Galaxy S8 | £50 upfront (with code EEMAZING20) | 8GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £30pm
Thanks to a timely price drop AND £20 off voucher, this Galaxy S8 deal from Carphone Warehouse-owned e2save just became one of the best value tariffs on the market. You also get unlimited calls and texts as well as EE's usual perks - 6 months of Apple Music, 3 months of the BT Sport app and the fastest 4G speeds in the UK. This is a really nice alternative to the cheapest EE Galaxy S8 deals out there for people who need a bit more data for streaming and surfing. Total cost over 24 months is £770
Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
This 15GB price on the UK's fastest 4G network is very attractive, especially thanks to the free handset. You also get unlimited calls and texts as well as EE's usual perks - 6 months of Apple Music, 3 months of the BT Sport app and the fastest 4G speeds in the UK. And that's not all - Direct Mobiles will throw in a free 3000mAh portable battery charger exclusively to TechRadar readers if you enter the discount code TECHPOWER at the checkout. Tempted? You should be! Total cost over 24 months is £912
The best iPhone 7 deals on EE:
The new iPhone 7 is another smash hit mobile phone from Apple thanks to further design enhancements. It's now waterproof, has a better screen and stereo speakers. The long-rumoured dropping of the headphone jack has become a reality. Memory capacity has been given a boost now, with the smallest models now starting at a much more spacious 32GB.
iPhone 7 32GB | £180 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 2GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £23pm
If you're after the cheapest iPhone 7 deal possible on EE, then this is the one you need. The real eye-catching detail of the plan is that ridiculously low monthly charge. It comes with unlimited calls and texts to add to the 2GB of data. But we have to be the bearers of bad news - this used to be over £50 cheaper. Prices are on the rise for the iPhone 7 at the moment. Total cost over 24 months is £732
iPhone 7 32GB | FREE upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
Don't fancy spending upwards of £100 on your new phone? Then this tariff from Direct Mobiles is a good'n. You get a completely FREE handset (as well as a portable battery charger with the voucher code TECHPOWER) and then you have to pay £38 per month - that's not terrible for the iPhone 7 and a generous 15GB of data. Total cost over 24 months is £912
iPhone 7 128GB | £79.99 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £34 per month
If you want the extra storage space that the 128GB iPhone 7 affords, you have to be prepared to spend. We understand that the large handset price will put some people off, but this is not a bad price on such a desirable handset. Total cost over 24 months is £895.99
The 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 | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 1GB data | £18pm
No no no no no no NO! The barely believable £14 per month iPhone SE deal that we so loved has now finally been removed from the Carphone Warehouse stable. But you can still saddle up with this £18 per month tariff - still pretty darn tootin'. There's nothing to pay upfront either, so you can ride into the sunset with a smile on your face. Total cost over 24 months is £447
iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 4GB data | £28pm
You used to be able to get 5GB of data for this price. Now it's down to 4GB. But this is still the tariff to go for if you want the UK's fastest 4G network with more than a negligible data allowance. You get a free phone thrown in...which is nice. Total cost over 24 months is £672
The best Google Pixel 2 deals on EE:
Google's own flagship handset has proved very popular with people wanting the purist Android experience out there. The Google Pixel 2 is every bit the match for the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and you know that you'll always have the most up-to-date Android operating system. And the cameras can scarcely be matched by any other smartphone today.
Google Pixel 2 | £89.99 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
Back in the glorious sales season you could get the Pixel 2 on EE for less than £20 a month and pay less than £200 at the start. Now the super low data deals have dried up and EE only really gets competitive once you crank up the surfing and streaming allowance. When the Pixel 2 was released, we would have been delighted with this, but now it looks a bit much. Total cost over 24 months is £1001.99
Google Pixel 2 XL | £169.99 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 10GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
Somehow, remarkably, this now appears to be the cheapest way you can currently buy the Pixel 2 XL on contract - it's around £300 more expensive over two years than what you could have paid a few weeks ago. At least you get 10GB of data rather than something more measly, and you'll be on the UK's fastest 4G network. Total cost over 24 months is £1081.99
