Whether you have a new smartphone or headphones on your wish list, this is the ideal time to take the plunge. With an array of gadgets and gizmos, both new and last-generation, retailers like Carphone Warehouse are offering price reductions that are among the best on the market during the Black Friday sale today.
Not sure which device will satisfy your hopes and dreams? Not to worry. Carphone Warehouse sells the widest range of handsets in the UK (across Vodafone, Virgin Mobile and iD, its own virtual mobile network). The retail giant also offers pay monthly, SIM-only and SIM-free deals pretty regularly. A one-stop shop for all things mobile. These are the best deals on offer...
1. Apple iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 is the newest addition to the Apple family, having only been released last month. It has a 6.1-inch screen with sharp OLED picture definition, a top-quality dual-lens camera and, as is the newest trend, it’s 5G-ready. Now Carphone Warehouse is offering the phone on a reduced-price contract, saving you a total of £72. The contract, which includes unlimited texts and minutes and 20GB data, is with iD mobile. However, if you feel you need more data (if, for instance, you’re constantly streaming TV shows whilst on the go), Vodafone also has a deal on the iPhone 12 – 100GB data for £43 per month (with £79 upfront).
2. Samsung Galaxy A21s
Now at its best-ever price, the Samsung Galaxy A21s would make a great Christmas gift for someone who needs their mobile to cover all basics well. It has a 6.5-inch Infinity-O Display on the front, holographic look on the back, decent Quad Cam (with a 48MP camera leading the shots), a long-lasting battery and more.
3. Apple iPhone 12 Mini
The iPhone 12 Mini does what it says on the tin – it has all the same features as the iPhone 12 model but it has a more compact design, with a nifty 5.4-inch screen. Carphone Warehouse is offering this model on a contract with iD, with 20GB data for just £32.99 per month. Alternatively, you could opt for Vodafone's deal of 100GB data for £36.99 per month (and £29.99 upfront). Vodafone will even throw in a free pair of Apple Airpods 2nd Generation.

4. Apple Airpods 2nd Generation with non-wireless charging case
It is extremely rare for the Apple Airpods to be included in Black Friday sales, so this is a great offer – at Carphone Warehouse’s lowest ever price. This pair of wireless headphones have revolutionised the way we listen to music, and they will run for up to five hours before they need charging. Their charging case is super efficient, too, with 15 minutes of charging giving you three hours’ play time.
5. Google Pixel 4A 5G
Google has become renowned in the smartphone market for its fantastic cameras and excellent value models – and the Google Pixel 4A is no exception. The phone has a brilliant algorithm-powered camera, unlimited cloud storage for photos, an all-day battery – and it is 5G-ready. Now, Carphone Warehouse is offering it at a fantastic price, on a 60GB data plan with Vodafone.
6. Samsung S20 Fan Edition
The Samsung S20 Fan Edition (or, FE) is similar to the regular S20, but with a few key differences. Firstly, the S20 FE has a slightly larger screen size (6.5-inch, as opposed to 6.2-inch) and a bigger battery. However, its camera quality is slightly less impressive than the regular S20 (which has telephoto and ultrawide cameras). Its major selling point, however, is its lower and more affordable price – which has become even more affordable with Carphone Warehouse’s £196 discount on its 20GB data plan with iD. If, however, you would prefer the standard Samsung Galaxy S20, there’s a great 100GB data plan with Vodafone for £35 a month, and £99.99 upfront cost.
7. Apple iPhone 11
The iPhone 11 is a seriously impressive phone. Its distinguishable feature is its excellent camera quality, including a regular and ‘ultra wide’ lens. The phone also has a night mode, which sets it apart from older models, dramatically improving the quality of your photos in low-light settings. Vodafone is currently offering this 6.1-inch phone for £30 a month, which is generous considering this includes 60GB data.
8. Samsung Galaxy Watch
This sleek smartwatch from Samsung allows you to take calls, check notifications and listen to music whilst you’re on the move. This watch, with a 42mm clock face, is also available in black or rose gold. Take your pick!
9. Apple AirPods 2nd Generation with non-wireless Charging Case
Apple's new AirPods use breakthrough technology to deliver crystal clear sound without wires, and - now - they last up to three hours on a single charge. They're also automatically on, automatically connected, and extremely easy to set-up.
