OnePlus 6 at a glance
In recent years OnePlus has made a habit of packing its smartphones with premium specs at pleasingly low prices - and the OnePlus 6 is no different. If budget is your main concern, then this could be your next handset.
Park your concerns about the price because the OnePlus 6 with its all-glass design, huge battery, bright and colourful screen, and dual-camera on the rear is a real winner.
A huge 6.28-inch AMOLED display may simply be too big for some - it does feel like we’ve reached big-screen critical mass - but there’s much here to marvel at, for such a mid-range phone. Particularly one that looks and acts like a flagship handset
Cheap OnePlus 6 deals
Mid-range handsets, such as the OnePlus 6, won’t hit your pocket quite as hard as premium handsets do. But there are still different ways to pay for a mobile contract - especially if you don’t want to pay an upfront fee.
On mobile contracts, some suppliers will vary the upfront fee against the monthly contract fee you’ll pay, so it’s worth considering how you’d like to split your costs.
Some require a large sum upfront and then a lower monthly fee, while others flip this and include a higher monthly fee, but you’ll pay less upfront.
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.
OnePlus 6 deals with no upfront cost
Some mobile networks include a “free device” in their contracts. This means there is no upfront fee to pay - but it also means you’ll be paying a higher monthly fee, as the overall cost of the handset is spread over the duration of the contract. On the plus side, you get a new OnePlus 6 without paying out hundreds of pounds at the start of your contract.
Compare network deals and vary the amount you’re comfortable paying upfront against the amount you want to pay each month, until you land on the right balance.
Refurbished OnePlus 6 deals
You save a lot of money by opting for a refurbished phone. Sometimes as as much as a few hundred pounds. So if you don't mind a pre-owned OnePlus 6, refurbished might be the way to go.
OnePlus 6 refurbished contracts
You can you buy a refurbished OnePlus 6 off-contact if you like and then get a SIM-only deal. But there are also plenty of monthly contracts too, which will allow you to spread the cost of the handset over the course of the contract term.
OnePlus 6 certified refurbished deals
A 'certified refurbished' phone is that's been checked over by the manufacturer and found to meet certain standards that mean it's acceptable for resale.
