Samsung Galaxy S6 

Galaxy S7 contract deals

The flagship phones from Samsung are the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. The S6 Edge is slightly more interesting, with its impressive curved screen, but comes at quite an extra cost. The specifications of the S6 and S6 Edge are almost the same, so we recommend opting for the S6. We recommend also going for a chunky data plan, so you can enjoy downloading and watching crystal clear HD videos on your device.

LG G3

LG G3 contract deals

A big phone making a big splash. The LG G3 was released in 2014 and sports a 5.5 inch HD screen with a huge 538 pixels per inch (PPI). To put that in perspective, the iPhone 6 has 326 PPI. The camera is 13MP in comparison to the 8MP of the iPhone 6, and the G3 has a Quad core processor (2500 MHz) compared to the iPhone 6's Dual core 1,400 MHz. Don't get us wrong, the iPhone 6 is a much prettier beast than the G3, but if you're an Android user then the LG G3 offers fantastic value for money.

SIM Only contract deals

What? A mobile contract without a phone? If you're happy with your current handset, then why not see if you can save yourself some cash by switching to a SIM-only contract? SIM-only plans are available from all mobile networks and come with a range of minutes, texts and data to suit your needs. There are 30-day and 12-month plans available, and you can keep your existing mobile number when you switch. Here's our top picks:

BT Mobile

2GB 4GB data

500 minutes

Double data!

£15.00 a month

12 months 

£20 iTunes/Amazon gift card

The great thing about this BT Mobile deal is that you can get it even cheaper if you're an existing BT customer! Alternatively, this deal is also pretty great:

Three SIM contract

Unlimited data

200 minutes

Unlimited texts

FREE SIM

12 months 

 

View deal

That's right, unlimited data for less than £25 a month. So, if your current phone contract has finished (i.e. you're outside the minimum contract period) then you can save money by getting this 12-month plan, or spend a little more on the 30 day equivalent plan.

Tips to switching

  • Make sure you're out of your minimum contract period with your current network
  • If you want to keep your phone, it may be locked to your current network. You'll need to unlock it if you want to switch to another network, and it could cost around £20 to do so.
  • If you want to keep your number, ask your current network for your PAC code, and give it to your new provider when you have your new SIM. For full instructions, read our simple guide to keeping your mobile number when you switch networks.
