Cheapest iPhone 7 deals this week

The ideal iPhone 7 plan is one that gives you everything you need from a mobile contract at the lowest price. The best thing to do is follow the steps above to find deals that suit you, then sort the results by cost to see the cheapest iPhone 7 deals right at the top.

To get a contract deal at the lowest possible cost, you can…

  • Choose an MVNO or budget network, such as giffgaff or Sky Mobile. These networks have lower operating costs, and therefore cost you less too.
  • Go for a lower allowance or lower internal storage size - but make sure you still have enough to cover you for the next two years.
  • Get a refurbished model which has been previously owned or returned.
  • Buy through a reseller - like Carphone Warehouse or Buymobiles, which offer pay-monthly contracts at cheaper rates.

Top iPhone 7 contracts with no upfront cost


Don't want to spend too much today? There are plenty of iPhone 7 deals with no upfront cost.

You essentially get a free device when you sign up, and the handset's cost is spread out over the course of your contract. Just bear in mind that this means you'll pay a little more on your monthly bills than if you spend more upfront right now.

A good number of networks and mobile resellers offer no upfront cost deals, so once again the best thing to do is compare them all.

The iPhone 7 at a glance

IPHONE 7

Sporting the standard iPhone design that Apple has used since the iPhone 6, the iPhone 7 is slim and nice to hold. On the front there's a 4.7-inch display with a HD resolution, which also has pressure-sensitive 3D Touch.

Most versions feature cool brushed aluminium - though if you go for the jet black one, you'll get a glossier, smoother back.

Like all iPhones, it has good cameras: a 12MP lens on the back with optical image stabilisation and quad-LED flash, and a 7MP selfie snapper on the front.

Sadly there's no headphone socket on the iPhone 7. It is waterproof, however, and includes a fingerprint scanner in the home button so you can use Touch ID.

The iPhone 7 is available with either 32GB or 128GB of internal storage for your apps, files, and pics. It isn't expanded with an SD card so choose carefully.

iPhone 7 screen and design

Back in 2016, the iPhone 7 looked like a state of the art smartphone. No so much, anymore.

Make no mistake, it's still a nicely designed phone. But next to all-screen phones from Apple and Samsung, the large bezels of the iPhone 7 now seem a bit old-fashioned.

At 4.7-inches, the display seems a little small by modern standards too. But still looks bright and crisp and performs fairly ably in bright light.

Elsewhere, it's worth heeding that there's no 3.5mm headphone jack. So if you want to listen to music with wired headphones, you'll have to use the special adaptor supplied in the box.

iPhone 7 battery

The iPhone 7 has a slightly larger battery than its predecessor. But even so, its longevity isn't all it might be.

After a day of emailing, watching a video or two and taking snaps, we found it'd typically get to 6pm each day before we had to seriously think about recharging.

However, lighter smartphone users should be able to get through a day without too much worry.

iPhone 7 camera specifications

iphone 7 colours

The iPhone 7 features a single-lens 12-megapixel camera and a seven-megapixel selfie camera.

The main camera is fine for everyday shots, which combine natural colours and a decent amount of detail. It's also simple to use.

However, the lack of a second lens means you won't be able to take 'depth-of-field' shots, where you blur out the background to bring your subject into sharper focus.

The front camera? That's pretty good for selfies too. But you don't get any of fun extra modes that later iPhones offer. And once again, there's no depth-of-field mode.

Lens 12 MP wide lens 7 MP
Key features Optical image stabilisation, wide aperture to let in more light Face detection and panorama mode

Frequently asked questions

Is the iPhone 7 a good buy in 2020?

Much time has passed since the iPhone 7 was Apple's flagship smartphone. But it's fair to say that 2016's iPhone has aged pretty gracefully, all things considered.

Sure, the large bezels around the screen mean it's not the most modern-looking handset.

And in a world where triple-lens cameras are now the standard for top-end handsets, the iPhone 7's single lens hasn't been cutting-edge for a long time.

But for all that, the iPhone 7 still takes good photos in most situations, with true-life colour reproduction.

Perhaps most importantly though, you'll get access to Apple's App Store. And the iPhone 7 is compatible with 2019's iOS 13 too, so your software won't feel outmoded or clunky.

For the asking price of under £400 when bought SIM-free, the iPhone 7 remains a very good buy. Especially if you're on a budget.

Can I get a iPhone 7 contracts with bad credit?

The majority of most mobile networks will carry out a credit check. Of course, if you have bad credit, this can be a problem. But it doesn’t have to be - there are still plenty of deals you can sign up to.
