Vodafone is one of the biggest networks in the world and by far one of the most powerful brands in the UK. Not surprising when they so frequently offer excellent tariffs on flagship handsets like the iPhone XR, Galaxy S9 and the market’s other favourite phones.
Vodafone seems to go through fits and spurts when it comes to how competitively it’s priced. It can go from the cheapest on the market, to pretty poor on our mobile phone deals comparison charts. Unfortunately, Vodafone seems to be going through one of its more expensive periods.
We’ve seen prices across devices rise on Vodafone lately, especially the bigger devices like the iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. However, there are still tonnes of great deals floating around, it just takes more searching and luckily we’ve done that part for you.
If Vodafone appeals to you though – or if you want to bag a Red Entertainment package that gives you a year’s subscription to Spotify Premium, NOW TV Entertainment or the Sky Sports app – then that’s where this page comes in! We’ve rounded up all of the best Vodafone phone deals so that you don’t have to, just take a look at TechRadar’s bespoke comparison chart below.
Price comparison chart
Best Samsung Galaxy S10 deals on Vodafone
Samsung’s newest release, this phone is rocking a completely flat, notch-less screen with a pin hole camera, giving it a unique style. Whether it’s the triple cameras on the back, fast processor or reverse charging, there is a lot to love here.
Samsung Galaxy S10 | £99 upfront | 10GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £42 per month
Vodafone really is a bit sporadic with its prices sometimes but this one is great. £42 a month for a healthy 30GB of data, you really can’t grumble with that – especially considering the upfront costs don’t break the roof either. Total cost over 24 months is £1,107
Best Samsung Galaxy S10e deals on Vodafone
Samsung’s brand new budget flagship, the S10e features high-end specs for an affordable price. If you want the best Samsung has but don’t want to have to pay through the roof to get it, this is the way to go. With all of the same features as the S10 with a few cutbacks, this is a high-end phone with mid-range pricing.
Samsung Galaxy S10e | Free upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £42pm
A contract with no upfront cost is always exciting, what’s even more exciting is when those kinds of contracts have a big supply of data. Well that’s what you’re getting here and £42 a month lands you right in the realms of affordability with this brand new device. Total cost over 24 months is £1219
Best iPhone XR deals on Vodafone
The iPhone XR hits a sweet spot between high tech and reasonable pricing. It looks a lot like its more powerful brethren – both in appearance and on the spec sheet – and boasts a glorious 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display and A12 Bionic chipset without a £1,000 price tag.
iPhone XR | £389 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £22pm
So we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that Mobiles.co.uk dropped its 4GB data £23 a month tarrif. The good news is that they replaced it with this. Yes, the data dropped down to 1GB but you do pay less a month so it all balances out. This is the cheapest way to get the XR on a monthly basis. Total cost over 24 months is £917
Best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on Vodafone
OK, so the Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn’t make massive strides on the S8, but that doesn’t mean it’s not still one of the premier Android phones on the market. The cameras in particular are awe inspiring and tangible improvements have been made to the biometrics and position of the fingerprint scanner.
Samsung Galaxy S9 | £115 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 6GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £26pm
Unfortunately if you were hoping to grab the S9 on Vodafone you may be looking at a slightly more expensive tariff than most of the other networks. This deal gets you monthly costs of just £26 and a healthy 6GB of data but there is a hefty upfront cost. Total cost over 24 months is £669
Best iPhone XS and X deals on Vodafone
Oh gosh, Apple went and did it. After years upon years of incremental upgrades, it finally made something special to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. For the iPhone X it has dropped the bezel altogether, while the 5.8-inch Super Retina HD is scarily good – and then it tweaked things a year later for the XS. Marvellous!
iPhone XS | £108.99 Upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 60GB data | £58pm
You’ll have your new phone for the next two years, if you’re attitude is a go all out on your new contract kind then this could be the deal for you. The monthly costs are quite expensive but then Mobile Phones Direct are throwing in a mouth-watering 60GB of data, worth the consideration of any heavy data user out there. Total cost over 24 months is £1,500.99
iPhone X 64GB | £59.99 upfront | 15GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £50pm
In the self-perpetuating ups and downs of Vodafone right now really isn’t a good time to get deals from them. If you’re heart is set on a Vodafone deal then this is the one we would advise going for. £50 monthly fees is actually very affordable when it comes to the Vodafone. Total cost over 24 months is £1,259.99
Best Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 deals on Vodafone
Samsung has now well and truly put the flaming memory of the Note 7 behind it. If the Note 8 was exceptional (6.3-inch infinity display and 6GB RAM), then the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is even bigger and better (6.4-inch infinity display and 8GB RAM). If you want the best big screen Android phones on the market, then look no further.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 | Vodafone | £46.99 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £46pm
Prices on Vodafone when it comes to the Note 9 is a very up and down experience. One moment they are unbeatable, the next they have shot up. Right now they fall somewhere right in the middle. This deal gets you 30GB of data for a pretty reasonable £46 a month and £50 upfront – that’s a pretty good place to be. Total cost over 24 months is £1,150.99
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 | FREE upfront | 1GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £34pm
Looking for a cheap Note 8 on Vodafone? This is our pick for the best choice. Unfortunately there is much better options with EE and O2. If you don’t mind which retailer you’re with check out the O2 deal below. You can get it for the same price but with a serious bump on data. Total cost over 24 months is £816
The best iPhone 8 deals on Vodafone
Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch, the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat. Perhaps unfairly – it improves on the iPhone 7 with wireless charging and an improved camera. Plus, it’s quite a bit cheaper. So if you’re looking for the best iPhone but balk at the iPhone X expense, try the 8 on for size instead.
iPhone 8 64GB | £260 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 1GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £22pm
This is currently one of the cheapest ways to get the iPhone 8 on Vodafone (or any network for that matter), but it involves a rather large spend upfront. You do only get 1GB of data but here’s the really good part, £23 bills – that’s a pretty cheap cost on what is still a relatively expensive phone usually. And don’t forget to save a tenner with our exclusive 10OFF code. Total cost over 24 months is £788
Best Samsung Galaxy S8 deals on Vodafone
There’s no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a fantastic phone. The lightning fast chip-set and abandonment of a large bezel around the screen makes it the premier Android experience. And now that the S9 is here, it’s no longer even that expensive.
Samsung Galaxy S8 | £50 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £26pm
Well sadly one of our favourite S8 deals recently came to an end, an affordable Vodafone offer that we loved. This is the next best when it comes to Vodafone. The upfront costs aren’t too high and the monthly costs of £26 are pretty affordable. The 5GB of data you get on top really ties it all together. Total cost over 24 months is £530 (after code)
Best iPhone SE deals on Vodafone
The iPhone SE looks and feels exactly the same as the iPhone 5S. But instead of sporting two-year-old hardware it’s been updated, with a faster CPU and graphics, and the 12MP iSight camera straight out of the iPhone 6S. It’s a modern iPhone in the shape of an old iPhone, for people who like the old iPhones but want more up-to-date hardware.
iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 15GB data | £30pm
If you’d rather not go through the process of claiming cashback by redemption but still want a decent data cap, this Vodafone contract could be for you. £30 a month and no upfront costs makes this a pretty affordable way to grab a big data plan on the iPhone SE. Total cost over 24 months is £720
Best Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL deals on Vodafone
The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are relatively new devices on the flagship scene but they have very quickly become two of our favourites. Powerful processors, loud speakers, but most importantly they have what is arguably the best cameras you can get on a phone right now.
Google Pixel 3 XL | £65.99 upfront | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £42pm
We don’t really know what’s going on with Vodafone deals but they seem to be a little bit all over the place right now. This is its best deal on the Pixel 3 XL right now if you want it on Vodafone, it might seem expensive but that’s what you get with a phone like this on a network that’s struggling to be competetive right now. Total cost over 24 months is £1,073.99
