Best Black Friday Deals


Is Apple doing a Black Friday Sale this year?

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.

What should you look for in a phone?

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.

Is a 5G phone better?

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.

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.

If you thought you'd seen the last of the Pixel 6a deals, then think again.

Vodafone has now dropped the price of the budget Pixel to £259 – and that even includes 21GB of data to use.

Can't say fairer than that!

The Honor 70 is now available for £379, so it's had a massive £100 knocked off its standard price.

That's top value for a mid-ranger that has got - according to our review - a brilliant screen, a great main camera, and an appealing design too. We thought it was well-priced back then, but with this deal it's a steal!

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.

This phone really impressed us with its gorgeous 6.55-inch AMOLED screen, highly capable cameras, and generally attractive design, so seeing such a reduction in price makes it a highly tempting prospect.

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.

Max Parker

If you’re happy with your smartphone but just need the right data allowance, then this SIM-only deal could have you covered.

Costing just £8 per month, down from the usual £10, you can get 30GB of data (along with unlimited UK calls and texts).
