Apple is running its traditional Black Friday Shopping Event this year. This doesn’t really give you discounts as such, but it does reward purchases with an additional gift card – so at least you are getting something extra for your money. Other retailers will more likely chop money off Apple tech, likely last year’s versions.
We review loads of phones each year at Trusted Reviews and there are a few things we will always look for, regardless of price. You always want it to be fast, long at least a day on a charge and have a screen readable in all manner of conditions.
5G is a nice feature to have, as it allows for faster downloads when in you’re in a supported area. Most of the phones listed here are 5G.

The iPhone 11 may be a few years old now but it still has plenty to recommend it, especially the cameras and the processing power.
This contract deal on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is one of the very best we've seen all week. Offering the handset (plus 200GB of data, plus unlimited minutes and texts) for £39 on top of an upfront cost of £80, it works out as less than the price of the smartphone if you were to buy it SIM free. That's right, it could all be yours for £944 over the course of 24 months.
The S22 Ultra is a no-holds-barred Android flagship that excels in every area, with a wonderfully large and lush screen, a brilliantly versatile camera that's especially good at zooming, and high performance standards too.
Buy the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 for a total of £840 over the course of this contract, plus 200GB of monthly data and unlimited minutes and texts. That's an incredible deal considering the RRP of the device is £999.

The Pixel 7 Pro is one of the best Android phones we've reviewed this year, as it twins brilliant camera performance with lush software. It's a great phone, for a great price.
This deal, which has no upfront cost, will cost £1,080 over its course while the RRP of the iPhone 14 is currently £849. Considering all that data, and unlimited minutes and texts into the bargain, it's a really good offer considering the high overall performance on the iPhone 14.

The Sony Xperia 10 IV has seen a huge price cut for Black Friday, now being available for just £299 rather than its £429 launch price.
This handset really impressed us for its battery life and its general robustness (being IP68 rated and having a Gorilla Glass Victus screen). However, it does have some flaws in our eyes, including with the consistency of the cameras and the 60Hz display refresh rate.
The Oppo Find X5 could be yours for just £459, thanks to a significant Black Friday saving of 39% on the original price of £749.

The Sony Xperia 1 III is now available for just £699, which is a price cut of 42% based on its original RRP.
Its 6.5-inch 4K OLED screen is a key selling point, as is the unique design which retains handy optional extras such as the headphone jack and Micro SD card.
You can get the Samsung Galaxy S22 with unlimited data for £26.99 a month with no upfront cost.
That means you would just pay £648 in total over two years, while the handset itself has a retail price of £769 SIM free. It's a brilliant deal, so you'd be wise to snap it up.
This contract deal gets you the brilliant iPhone 13, along with 100GB of monthly data, at a cut price.
It will cost you £199 upfront, and then you’ll be on a monthly plan costing £27. That means you’ll pay £847 overall for a device which currently costs £749 out of contract, but you’ll get 100GB of data and unlimited minutes and texts each month too.
The 24-month contract consists of the phone and a Three SIM with 30GB of data, unlimited texts and unlimited minutes. This works out at £456 over the contract, which is good value.
This deal sees you get the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra along with a 500GB monthly allowance for just £45 per month.
