What's the cheapest place to buy a phone?

Mobile phones develop at a rapid rate every year. And with hundreds of devices to choose from, you might be tempted to trade-in your current handset for a 'new' phone. But 'new' smartphones often set you back a lot of money. You either have to tie yourself to a long contract (up to 36 months) or pay hundreds of pounds in advance to own your handset.

In fact, the most popular 'new' smartphones can cost over £1,000. Take the iPhone 12 Pro Max which costs anything up to £1,100 - or the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which could set you back around £1,200. Contracts can help spread this cost out, but you'll usually end up paying more for the handset. And worse, you're then locked into a long payment plan that means you'll be paying for your phone for anything up to three years.

Cheap mobile phones - but no compromise in quality

But wait... There's another way. Buy a cheap phone from The Big Phone Store. And with us, 'cheap' never means a compromise in quality. You might be paying less than you would for a 'new' handset - but you're still getting a great smartphone at an amazing price.

In our online store, we've got a range of affordable phones at unbeatable prices. We sell all your favourites, including the very best Apple, Samsung, Google Pixel, Nokia, Motorola, LG and Huawei have to offer. So whatever you need, you're sure to find it in our online store.

The Big Phone Store is never beaten on price. Even better, we have a Price Match Promise that puts you in complete control. We're very confident about the value we offer in our online store. But in the unlikely event that you manage to find a better 'like for like' price on any mobile phone, we'll match it instantly. We'll even give you a free gift worth up to £50 just for telling us about it and still choosing The Big Phone Store!

Over many years, we've built our reputation as the home of excellent value and superb service.

Basically, we're a trusted retailer with a proven track record of giving our customers the very best deals on a range of mobile phones. So buy your next handset in our online store with complete confidence!

Why buy a cheap phone?

Every cheap phone we sell in our online store is a top quality device. But our cheap phones aren't simply 'second hand'. The only thing a 'second hand' phone has in common with our great value ones is that it isn't 'new' - nothing more.

Every cheap phone sold by The Big Phone Store is fully tested, checked and cleaned by our experts. These phones are basically 'good as new'. In fact, research into such devices indicates that they often have lower defect rates (part failure rates) than 'new' handsets. This is because our great value phones go through an extensive testing process that isn't required for every 'new' smartphone.

Another great reason to buy one of our cheap phones is that you'll get a 12-month warranty. Not all retailers provide 12-months warranty on most of their products. But at The Big Phone Store, we want you to shop with confidence and know that you can get any parts fixed if they fail within the first year of owning your handset. We offer a 3-month warranty on all handsets in 'fair' condition (see below) - otherwise, you've got up to a year's cover against part costs and replacements.

Buying a 'used' phone from us is almost like buying a 'new' one. It's been more rigorously tested than most 'new' handsets and you get a whole year of warranty on most of our devices. And if you're worried about high delivery costs, don't be... The Big Phone Store offers free delivery on all products over £30 (this includes most of our cheap mobiles). Free delivery has an estimated arrival time of between 3-5 working days. But if you want your phone even faster, then opt for express delivery in the checkout. There is a cost for this service, but it guarantees that you'll receive your handset the next working day (as long as you order by 3pm).

Working out the 'condition' of used phones at The Big Phone Store

At The Big Phone Store, we want to be completely transparent with the 'condition' of any used phone you buy from us. So for every product we sell, we've described its 'condition' and classed it in one of the following four categories:

  • Pristine: Perfect working order. Basically a premium phone with no visible signs of use. As good as a 'new' handset.

  • Very Good: Has only light signs of use. Fully tested and found to be in perfect working order.

  • Good: Used and moderate signs of use. Fully tested and found to be in perfect working order.

  • Fair: Fully tested and found to be in perfect working order. May have scratches or cracks on the housing and / or screen. May also have screen burn that leaves a residual image on the device's display.

Prices will always reflect the 'condition' of any handset that you're looking to buy. This means that a 'pristine' handset will cost more than a 'fair' one. But at The Big Phone Store, we never overestimate the 'condition' of any device. And remember... Our 12-month warranty is designed to give you complete peace of mind when it comes to buying a cheap mobile from us.

Get The Latest Cheap Phones

If you want the latest cheap iPhones at an affordable price, look no further than our online store. We've got all your favourites, including the excellent iPhone 11 Pro and the recently released iPhone 12. But we also stock many of Apple's older phones - like the iPhone 7 or the very affordable iPhone SE.

Cheap Android phones

If it's an android phone that you want, The Big Phone Store has got everything you need. Whether it's the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra or the Huawei P40 Pro, we've got it all. But if it's a cheaper handset that you're after, take a look at the superb LG L3 or the Nokia Lumia 925.

Cheap Phones - Pay-as-you-go

If you're looking to move away from a contract and use the pay-as-you-go model, we've got plenty of cheap phones for sale that you might want. The great thing about all our devices is you'll own them outright from the very start. And if you want to stick with a particularly network, look out for 'unlocked' handsets or a handset that's already connected to your provider of choice.

Cheap Phones - SIM-free

SIM-free phones are also available in our online store for a great price. SIM-free phones are perfect for those who either want to buy their own SIM card or insert one they already have. Our SIM-free devices work with either contract SIMs or pay-as-you-go, making them the most flexible of all the cheap handsets we have on offer.

Buying a cheap mobile from us is good for the planet!

Buying a cheap phone is by far the best thing you can do for the planet. Recycling an old device is good, but constantly replacing your handset with 'new' ones can actually become quite damaging to the environment. This is why we believe that buying a cheap mobile from our online store is one of the best things you can do for the planet!
