The best Amazon Prime Day smartphone deals in the UK
Amazon’s annual Prime Day event is live, and despite the name, the discounts will be available today and tomorrow, at least while supplies last. We’ve rounded up some of the best Amazon UK deals (focusing on phones), here’s what’s worth checking out.
Xiaomi offers a free pair of headphones with several of its smartphones for sale. The Xiaomi 12 (not S, so not Leica and uses the original Snapdragon 8 Gen 1) is down to £525 (30% off, 8/128GB). The Xiaomi 11T Pro has a Snapdragon 888 instead, an 8/256GB drive can be had for £430 (34% off). The standard Xiaomi 11T with Dimensity 1200 is slightly cheaper at £385 (30% off, 8/256GB). Even cheaper, thanks to a 40 per cent discount, is the £120 Redmi Note 11.

Like the Xiaomi 12, the Poco F4 GT offers flagship performance with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a 12/256GB drive can be yours for £400 (43% off). If you don’t need that much power, the Poco X4 Pro 5G (8/256GB) is £210 (30% off) and the Poco M4 Pro (8/256GB) is £170 (32% off).

Phone + headset combos continue, this time from Google. The Pixel 6 (8/128GB) is £450 (36% off) and comes with Pixel Buds (white or olive). The Pixel 6 Pro (12/128GB) costs £650, again with Pixel Buds.

The Samsung Galaxy S21+ is over a year old, but Samsung’s excellent software support (5 years) means we can serve you for a long time. You can pick one up for £600 (an 8/256GB drive, 40% off).

Several Samsung M-series phones are also offered. The Galaxy M53 (8/128GB) is down to £340 (23% off). It’s not that new, and it doesn’t have a 108MP camera, but the Galaxy M52 5G is available for less: £250 (27% off) for a 6/128GB unit. The Galaxy M33 is slightly cheaper at £220 (27% off, 6/128GB) and you can also look at the £200 Galaxy M23. All four have 5G connectivity.

The Galaxy Watch4 (44mm) costs £170 if you want the Bluetooth model, £200 if you want the LTE model. The smaller Galaxy Watch4 Classic (42mm) costs £200 for the Bluetooth model and £240 for the LTE model.

The OnePlus 10 Pro (12/256GB) is down to £750 (17% off), but the OnePlus 9 Pro is arguably a better option at £680 (12/256GB) – it has the older Snapdragon 888 (instead of 8 Gen 1) and its battery is smaller, but the rest is comparable. The non-Pro OnePlus 9 (8/128GB) can be had for £400 as something of a middle ground between the Pros and the OnePlus Nord 2 (8/128GB), which costs £290.

Sony’s premium range also gets some discounts. The Sony Xperia 1 IV costs £1,200. Depending on which camera you use more of (main or telephoto), you might want to get the £1,250 Xperia Pro-I instead (don’t forget the older chipset). Older Xperia flagships are cheaper, with the Xperia 1 III costing £850. There’s also the smaller Xperia 5 III for £650.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include Amazon’s Android tablets. They are not very capable, but they are very cheap and getting hold of the Google Play Store is not a difficult task. The Kind Fire HD 8 is just £35, while the Plus model (with an extra GB of RAM) is £55. They’re small (8″) and with HD screens, mind you. If you want something for your shows, the Kindle Fire HD 10 is a better choice with its 10.1″ (16:10) FHD display; you can get one for £80 or the Plus model for £110.
