Black Friday and the January sales were a heady and exciting time for folk looking to pick up an iPhone 8 deal. Prices dropped so far that they were pretty much undercutting the iPhone X by almost half! If you wanted one of the latest iPhones without paying silly money, then the iPhone 8 was the Apple handset to go for.
The bargain basement iPhone 8 prices have, of course, now come to an end.. Maybe we'll see another drop when the Samsung Galaxy S9 is announced at the end of February, but for now you'll find the cheapest deals here. You can save yourself lots of money by using TechRadar's price comparison tool on this very page, and the iPhone 8 is still waaaaaay more affordable than the X.
To make it even easier, we've picked out specific recommendations further down the page so you can easily locate the most attractive deals at different data points, networks and budgets.

The best iPhone 8 deals you can buy in the UK today:
When the iPhone 8 hit the shelves, we were doing everything possible to prepare people that they were going to have to spend big to get the 2017 Apple iPhone. But as you'll see, you can already get this brilliant iPhone for less than £1000 over the two years and there are some fantastic deals to be snapped up…
iPhone 8 deals: how much does the phone cost?
The SIM-free price of the new iPhone 8 is £699. That's £100 more than the iPhone 7 cost when it launched in the UK 12 months ago, so while this is not the iPhone X, nor is it what you'd call a cheap alternative. To get the phone on a 24 month contract you'll obviously have to pay a fair whack more than that, so depending on which tariff suits you best you may or may not be better off buying SIM free with a SIM only deal.
Don't expect a revolution with the iPhone 8. It's essentially a tweaked iPhone 7 with a few enhancements and one or two upgrades. For that reason we wouldn't particularly recommend this phone to anyone with an iPhone 7 – but for those with older phones this could make a timely upgrade if the price of the iPhone X makes you want to weep.
