What were the phone deals like on Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022 were great days to pick up a smartphone on the cheap.

We saw a bunch of money-off deals on 2022 flagships including £200 off the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, as well as a whopping £450 off the foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, bringing it down to just £549. There were even deals on refurbished models of iPhone, with one particularly notable deal offering a refurbished iPhone 13 Pro in excellent condition for just £549.

It wasn’t just SIM-free deals however; Black Friday 2022 was also an excellent event for contract deals. We saw cheap contract deals on the Pixel 6a that bundled 100GB of data for £18 a month with no upfront costs, as well as a particularly tempting deal on the then-just-released Pixel 7 with 100GB of data and no upfront cost for £28 a month. 

There was also the occasional tech bundle offered by retailers like Amazon, bundling the then-year-old Pixel 6 Pro with Pixel Buds A-Series for just £549, down from a combined price of £948.99, suggesting we could see something similar this year.
