The best EE phone deals in August 2018

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 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 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £36pm
If you want to jump on to the UK's fastest 4G network, 30GB somehow just became the best value way of getting it thanks to this new Mobile Phones Direct tariff. The monthlies are coming in at £36 and there's absolutely nothing to pay when you sign up. It's by far the best EE iPhone 8 deal out there. Total cost over 24 months is £864

The 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.

Samsung Galaxy S9 | £150 upfront | 8GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £28pm
If your main priorities are i) getting your monthly bills as cheap as possible, and ii) being on the UK's fastest 4G network, then this EE Galaxy S9 deal from Affordable Mobiles is a good fit. It comes in under the £30-mark per month, albeit with a sizeable upfront spend. Total cost over 24 months is £822

Samsung Galaxy S9 | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £36pm
All during June, EE was absolutely storming the big data Galaxy S9 scene. 30GB deals on the UK's fastest 4G network were virtually the cheapest thing out there on the handset. That's all changed now and normality has been restored. This one is well worth a look though if you require 30 glorious GB of data. Total cost over 24 months is £864

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 | £82 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £53pm
This is a lean, mean iPhone X deal. It's all very straightforward - you agree to pay Affordable Mobiles £53 per month for two years and it will send you an iPhone X for less than £100 upfront. It's pretty much the cheapest way you can get the iPhone X on contract right now. Simples (as we understand the meerkats say). Total cost over 24 months is £1354

iPhone X 64GB | £178 upfront | 25GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £53pm
This iPhone X deal from Affordable Mobiles works out cheapest on EE over the two year term of the contract at the moment for big data, coming in under £1,500 over the two year term. You get free Apple Music for 6 months and BT Sport for 3, as well as the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that you're on the UK's fastest 4G network. But the upfront price just shot up by over £100. Total cost over 24 months is £1450

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 | £40 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £38pm
Ok, that's enough. This fight is over. Fonehouse has produced a Galaxy Note 8 deal so good that it's barely worth looking at any others. The monthly bills, upfront price and sub-£1k total cost are extraordinary enough for this gigantic phone anyway, but when you consider that you get an incredible 30GB of data every month it becomes stratospheric. This is THE Note 8 deal to go for. Total cost over 24 months is £952

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 | FREE upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £31pm
When this EE iPhone 7 deal hit Affordable Mobile's virtual shelves, it really shook up the scene on the iPhone 7. But that was when it came with 30GB of data per month, not 20GB. Don't get us wrong though, because a handsome 20GB of data for only £33 per month and absolutely nothing to pay upfront is still excellent value on a phone we still love. Total cost over 24 months is £744

This is a deal of two halves. On face value, we slightly baulk at the £36 per month tariff, notwithstanding the fact that you get 30GB of data each month. But click through and you'll discover that there's £40 cashback available to claim over the course of the contract, bringing the effective total cost to around £800. Total cost over 24 months is £864

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 here, it's no longer even that expensive.

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £25pm
One of the cheapest ways you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 on EE at the moment, and you get a decent 4GB of data from retailer Mobile Phones Direct. It costs only £25 per month and not a single thing upfront. Total cost over 24 months is £600

Samsung Galaxy S8 | FREE upfront | 20GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £31pm
This just overtook the lot as our favourite EE Galaxy S8 tariff.  The price has 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. Total cost over 24 months is £744

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 | £65.99 upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £15pm
So £15 per month iPhone SE deals are definitely now a thing. The incredible sub-£400 offer has now gone, so this has become the cheapest of them all (without having to jump through cashback claiming hoops). If you've inexplicably been waiting for the SE to get more affordable, your prayers have just been answered. Total cost over is 24 months is £425.99

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 4GB data | £22pm
EE is the network to go for if you want the UK's fastest 4G network though, and this is possibly the best value tariff at the moment. There's a very enticing £96 cashback that you can claim, bringing the effective overall cost down to less than £450. Plus, you get a free phone thrown in...which is nice. It's a return to greatness for this network on the iPhone SE. Total cost over 24 months is £432 (after cashback)

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 20GB data | £20pm (after cashback)
This is a rather incredible iPhone SE deal from Mobile Phones Direct, if you can be bothered to chase the retailer around for cashback over the next two years. It totals a staggering £264 in all, which you have to redeem in five chunks during the contract. But, as you can see, the result is a low low rate for a fantastic 20GB of data each month. Total cost over 24 months is £480 (after cashback)

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 | £29.99 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £38pm
This has to be the best value Pixel 2 contract deal now on EE. The handset price is very low at the start, 10GB is more data than most people will require and no other network gets close to EE's 4G connection speeds. The Pixel 2 has been cheaper in the past, but with the state of the market right now this is excellent value. Total cost over 24 months is £941.99

Google Pixel 2 XL | £49.99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £36pm
This fantastic offer is a wonderful big data bargain on the UK's fastest 4G network EE and just got cheaper still. Look at deals on the regular size Pixel and you'll see that you can't get 30GB of data for this price - that's testament to the brilliance of this deal. Big data on the massive smartphone. Total cost of 24 months is £913.99
