    Apple iPhone XR deal STILL live: 100GB of data for £36 a month – and ZERO upfront fee


    This is an absolute smasher of a deal – with LOADS of data and an enormous £600+ saving

    HOT DEALS

    YOU won’t normally find a truly outstanding Apple deal – but Black Friday delivered one which is still going strong.

    The brand new iPhone XR is available for £36 a month, and below we’ll explain exactly why that’s the best iPhone deal we’ve seen so far.

    The iPhone XR is Apple’s cheapest new iPhone for 2018 – and it’s amazing value for money


    The excellent iPhone XR deal from Fonehouse gets you a Vodafone contract with zero upfront fee.


    And it includes an enormous 100GB of data to use every month – plus unlimited minutes and texts.

    This will cost you £864 over the contract’s entire 24-month run.

    That’s only slightly higher than the phone’s official retail price of £749.

    • iPhone XR at Vodafone (100GB data) for £36 a month (£0 upfront) – buy now

    The handset is available in six different colours


    The deal is even better than it might first seem.

    If you bought the phone outright at £749, you’d also need to invest in a SIM card.

    Vodafone’s closest SIM-only deal is a 45GB offer for £31 a month.

    That’s less than half of the data on offer at Fonehouse, and will cost you £744 over 24 months.

    Tack that onto the price of the phone and you end up with a total bill of £1,493 over two years.

    So this £864 contract is actually saving you an enormous £629.

    The saving is even bigger, when you count the fact that you’re getting more than double the data here too.

    Have mine over a year now. Cracking phone with the best camera. Screen is quite prone to scratches, so get some screen savers.
    Come to think about there’s only two scratches on it, and it’s always lying about bathrooms that I’m ripping out so maybe not prone lol

    I have the more recent upgrade on that, the Mate 20 Pro, and it's fantastic. The camera is amazing.

    I've never had a really expensive phone before this but got a good deal on a contract. A bit paranoid about dropping it though :giggle1:

    It's the camera that is the selling point in a phone for me, that's why I always had Sony phones as they seemed to be ahead of everyone else but 3 mobile don't have the latest Sony so I just went for that one.

    Good phone then?

    I'm going to get a case and screen protector for it, I'm not guilty of dropping my phones but always like to try protect them.

    Yeah, it's great. The low light camera is particularly good. I was torn between that and the P20 Pro and ended up going for the Mate.

    :50: I'm looking forward to getting it on Tuesday.

    I didn't even know there was a Mate one lol....only thing that I read about it and didn't think to check was the headphone port, apparently it's the charging port you put headphones in, I'll get used to that I suppose. Battery life seems to be great so that might not be a big issue.

    What I will be doing is getting filters, when the self camera is 20 pixels, I'll need something to totally smooth out my face :56:
