September 2016 brought two new smartphones from Apple: the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus. The better of the two by far is the Plus model - it's got a larger screen, better cameras, and even stands at a full 2cm taller.
Here's everything you need to know to get your hands one. Compare deals on the iPhone 7 Plus with our comparison tool, pick one you want, and get the right plan for you in no time.
What is the iPhone 7 Plus like?
It's a 'phablet'-sized iPhone, with a nice big 5.5-inch screen - at a higher resolution than the standard iPhone 7, no less. With a display that size, this is quite the hefty handset.
Not only is it larger than its sibling phone, the iPhone 7 Plus also takes better photos. On the back you'll find two 12MP lenses, one of them wide-angle and the other telephoto, capable of 2x optical zoom. Inside, the phone runs on a quad-core Apple A10 chip with 3GB of RAM, so performance is speedy and smooth.
It's water-resistant too, but that means it doesn't have a headphone jack. Instead, it ships with an adapter so you can plug your headphones into the lightning port.
Overall, it's a great choice for anyone who wants a decent iPhone with a little more to offer than the iPhone 7, but isn't a fan of the prices attached to later models.
How to find the best iPhone 7 Plus deal
You'll find the best iPhone 7 Plus deal for you by using CompareMyMobile's handy tool. Select what you want from a deal using the filters on the side, and we'll show you all the deals currently available on this supersized handset. You can compare everything on a single place and find the deal that fits you best.
Here's how to do it.
1. Choose a model
You can choose how much internal storage you want on your iPhone 7 Plus - 32GB, 128GB, or 256GB - and what colour you want, if you have a preference. Your choices there are silver, gold, rose gold, red, black, or a glossier jet black.
Got your eye on a couple of phones? We'll let you compare deals on multiple handsets together on the same grid.
2. Pick a tariff
Think about the monthly calls, texts, and data allowance you need. Light users will be fine with a low tariff, though for a phone this big and powerful, you may want more data. Most of us use around 2GB-5GB each month, but available tariffs include 10GB, 50GB, or even unlimited data.
Set a minimum allowance in the filters on the comparison table so it only shows deals that fit your use. You can also filter for a maximum budget, specific networks, 4G-only deals, and loads more - and sort them by things like cost or data allowance.
3. Select a deal
Compare what you can get, then click on a deal that looks good, and we'll take you straight to the provider or retailer so you can start your order. It really is that simple.
What's the cheapest iPhone 7 Plus deal?
No one wants to pay out the nose for their mobile plan - but luckily we have some cheap iPhone 7 Plus deals.
Look for deals that match what you want using the steps above, then sort them all by cost using the toggle at the top. Sorting by 'total cost' will rank deals based on the total amount you'll pay over the course of your contract - or you can sort them by monthly and upfront costs.
To get the cheapest deal possible, there are a few things you can try:
- Choose smaller network or MVNO, which have lower overheads and cost you less too. You get fewer extras and bonuses, but that's not a problem if you just want good service with a low price.
- Pick lower storage option - though make sure you still have enough space, as there's no SD card slot on the iPhone 7 Plus.
- Purchase through a reseller, such as Carphone Warehouse or E2Save.
- Look out for existing customer deals from your current mobile network or even broadband provider. Networks like O2, BT Mobile, and Plusnet Mobile like to reward loyal customers with exclusive deals.
- Get a refurbished phone, which isn't brand new but comes with a lower price.
iPhone 7 Plus deals with unlimited data
iPhone 7 Plus deals with unlimited data are available if you're a big mobile internet user, though you can only get them from a couple of networks. Three has the most options here - its unlimited plans have an incredibly high fair usage limit and a few pricing setups to choose from.
If you want more choice though, consider going for a large data allowance instead. EE, O2, and Vodafone all offer pay-monthly contract deals with 50GB or more data per month - and most other networks have deals with at least 10GB a month. Compare everything you can get with our comparison tool:
iPhone 7 Plus deals with no upfront cost
You'll find mobile deals to suit any budget, and that includes iPhone 7 Plus deals with no upfront cost. They mean less to pay today, with the cost spread out over the rest of your contract instead. They're available on a range of networks on lots of choice of monthly allowance too.
To see what you can get, compare iPhone 7 Plus deals and select 'free' under the phone cost filter.
