Best 5G mobile phone deals

Oppo Find X2 Lite – was £399, now £276 (31% off)

We liked Charges quickly, responsive touchscreen

We didn’t like External speaker isn’t great

This is a brilliant deal on a mid-range phone. It has the large display we’ve come to expect from Oppo phones (6.4-inches), plus four rear cameras and 128GB of storage. If you use wired headphones, you’ll be pleased to find a socket that’s often missing on high-end phones.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – was £700, now £549 (22% off)

We liked Six cameras in total, edge-to-edge display

We didn’t like Selfie camera isn’t the best

It’s not just 5G that makes this phone stand out – it has a massive 6.7-inch AMOLED display, four rear and two front cameras, and it’s waterproof, too. Now it’s more than a year old, we’re seeing the staggering launch price start to come down slightly, so it’s a good choice if you’re looking to bag a bargain ahead of Black Friday.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G – was £999, now £849 (15% off)

We liked Fast processor, beautiful display

We didn’t like Fingerprint scanner can be slow

Samsung has put some of its flashiest specs into the S20 range, but this is the model to buy if you’re after 5G and the biggest possible screen. Its huge 6.7-inch AMOLED display is equipped with the same technology as Samsung’s 4K TVs, so it should be perfect for watching your favourite shows on the move.

Realme X50 Pro 5G – was £569, now £489 (14% off)

We liked: High-resolution display, easy to use

We didn’t like: No micro-SD card slot to extend storage or headphone jack

This smartphone has the Snapdragon 865 5G processor that you find on a top-of-the-range Samsung, so you’d expect it to be as quick and powerful as any premium phone. Otherwise you get a Full HD+ 6.4-inch display, 128GB of internal storage and six cameras in total.

Motorola Moto G 5G Plus – was £300, now £260 (13% off)

We liked Bright display, user-friendly interface

We didn’t like Speaker sounds a bit dull

With its powerful processor, hefty 5,000mAh battery and four rear cameras, this budget-friendly phone gives top-of-the-range models a run for their money. The massive 6.7-inch display won’t be for everyone, but if you’re after a phablet-style 5G phone without the premium price, this model should be on your shortlist.

How to find the best mobile phone deals

Buying a phone outright, particularly a top-of-the-range model, can be a huge outlay. Knowing when and where to look can help you bag a bargain. Our top tips are:

  • Check retailer websites such as Amazon, Argos and Curry’s PC World first. They’re more likely to have discounts than manufacturer sites.
  • Always double check what you’re actually getting, especially on marketplaces. Some models on Amazon and eBay may be refurbished, or EU versions of UK devices, which could affect warranty claims.
  • When a brand launches a new phone, its last range usually gets discounted. Look for the penultimate Samsung Galaxy in April, Apple iPhone in September and Google Pixel in October.
