The iPhone XS is finally as cheap as the iPhone XR was over Black Friday

Pay just £36 a month in this jammy iPhone XS contract on Three, courtesy of Fonehouse.

For the past two years across Black Friday we’ve seen some pretty juicy deals on the iPhone XR, especially the very popular Fonehouse offer packing 100GB of data for £36 a month with Three. However, for the first time ever you can get the very same treatment but on the actual flagship of the 2018 Apple iPhone family – the iPhone XS.

Apple iPhone XS Deal

Apple iPhone XS on Three - 100GB of Data, Unlimited Minutes and Texts

The very same deal we saw on the iPhone XR, pick up the more premium iPhone XS in the very same deal and enjoy 100GB of data on this Three contract.

On top of the 100GB of data, expect Three’s usual all-you-can-eat unlimited minutes and texts across this 24-month contract with no upfront cost, and pay just £864 in total – cheaper than you’ll find the iPhone XS SIM-free at most retailers.

When it came to the iPhone family of 2018, it goes without saying the iPhone XR was the more popular choice, likely because of its affordable price point (where Apple smartphones are concerned, anyway). However, if you’re after better specs, the iPhone XS is actually the top choice of its time, boasting a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina Display, which offers stunning visuals with its well-balanced contrast and vivid colours. Side by side with the XR, it’s a no brainer that, visually, the iPhone XS really does stun.

Its rear camera set-up is also considerably more elite with dual sensors working in tandem to achieve more versatile smartphone photography. With a 12MP wide sensor, the phone also offers a 2x optical zoom, with both sensors loaded with optical image stabilisation for a more professional look. With Smart HDR to boot, the iPhone XS snaps multiple pictures and compiles them to create the strongest finished product.

Despite packing the same A12 Bionic chipset as the XR, it is true that in terms of battery life, the iPhone XS doesn’t offer quite the same longevity as the XR. With that said, when it’s processing higher res images, as well as navigating a dual camera set-up as opposed to the XR’s single sensor, it’s not exactly difficult to understand why the A12 Bionic chispet might not be as efficient in the iPhone XS. Still, as a user of the handset in question, I still find I can comfortably get through the day with plenty of social media scrolling, music streaming and texting without need to plug in before bedtime.

Apple iPhone XS Deal

Apple iPhone XS on Three - 100GB of Data, Unlimited Minutes and Texts

The very same deal we saw on the iPhone XR, pick up the more premium iPhone XS in the very same deal and enjoy 100GB of data on this Three contract.

An excellent iPhone that is still holds up – even against the new iPhone 11 family – partnered with this 100GB of data tariff, this is ideal for those who are locked at the hip with their smartphone and want something that will offer the perfect canvas for bingeing through Netflix’s library.

At just £36 a month, this is a ridiculously good deal and there’s no telling how long it’ll be around for. If you’ve ever fancied upgrading to a top-tier iPhone on the cheap then now is the time do it.
