Best 5G Mobile Phones & Contract Deals
At Fonehouse we are committed to making sure our customers have the best access to a range of mobile phones, the best deals, and of course the latest in technology. 5G is coming very soon, and with that in mind, many phone providers have started to prepare. This means we are seeing an introduction of 5G enabled handsets that are perfectly placed to make sure you can access this super fast connectivity from the moment your area is enabled.
The Best 5G Mobile Phones & Deals
To make it easy for you to compare the best 5G mobile phone deals on all the latest handsets & networks from Fonehouse we have grouped them all together in one easy location, so you can check out everything and find what you need. 5G has been talked about for some time and is now ready to begin roll out across the UK and indeed the world. It is the next generation of the technology you currently know as 4G and promises to offer faster mobile internet when you are not using a WiFi network. You will find the speeds are quicker, giving you more rapid access to downloads and uploads, as well as the network promising to offer a more comprehensive coverage and better stability in your connections. This is a welcome upgrade that is going to bring you the best and quickest mobile internet, and a 5G handset will complete the deal.
We have worked hard to get our customers access to the best of these new 5G handsets, and they come from a range of different manufacturers so you will have plenty to choose from, whether you love a Samsung or fancy checking out some of the newer brands to market like Oppo. Of course, we also strive to give you the best choice when it comes to pay monthly deals, so once again we have worked hard with our trusted network providers EE and Vodafone, and we are so excited with the deals we have been able to come up with for you.
There is a vast range of deals to choose from each offering something different that you can pair with your choice of 5G handset. Deals have a variety of data options, a range of handsets with upfront cost or indeed free and no cost, plus many different free network gifts that really sweeten the deal and leave you watching the door for the postman. Oh, and by the way did we mention that we also offer free next working day delivery for every handset that we have in stock. That’s right we are excited as you are to help you get your hands on your new 5G mobile phone so we fast track your order through to our dispatch team and get things moving as quickly as possible, all at no extra cost to you.
So, when it comes to picking the perfect deal, as we mentioned already, you have a nice range of choice. First comes your data allowance, now this is really important because if you do not have enough data, then you could find your mobile bill creeping up and costing you more at the end of the month than you bargained for. Mobile data is basically when you are using 5G to access your email, your apps, the internet and more. It doesn’t mean the calls that you make or the texts that you send, these are also covered, and more often than not, you will see that most deals have unlimited calls and texts. But your data allowance is vital, and with 5G being so excellent and having so much coverage, you are going to want to be prepared. Now if you already have a mobile on contract, our customer service team can help you find out how much data you are using in a month if you don’t then a few simple lifestyle questions about how you use your phone will enable them to help you choose the best data allowance for you. As a rule of thumb, it is always best to have data to spare, and you will find that it works out to be really reasonable and perhaps cheaper than you thought. If you have a little more than you need, you can cope with unexpected events like your home internet connection failing, and needing to use your phone for more than usual, and there will be no extra charges because you are within your allowance. If you go over the allowance with your 5G enabled handset you might not even know unless you set up alerts, and the network provider will just start adding extra charges, and your handset will work as normal. It is a bit like a penalty for going overdrawn when you don’t have an authorised overdraft.
Now you need to decide whether you want to have your handset for free or whether you want to pay towards it. We have worked hard to make sure that where a handset is included free, you are not being penalised with a higher monthly payment, so again have a look through the deals on offer and see what you like the look of. Finally, you will find that our awesome network providers have added some free gifts to many of the deals and you can choose one of the freebies offered to add to your package. Whether you like to watch sport, stream Amazon Prime television or listen to Spotify or Apple Music, you will find there are some great gifts to be had here.
If you want to get ahead of the crowd and get your 5G mobile phone now, then have a look through the deals that we offer, and remember our fabulous UK based customer service team are only ever a call away and are delighted to help you with any questions you might have about any of our handsets or pay monthly deals. So, if you would like to speak to them, all you need to do is call on 0333 900 1133, and they will be waiting to help you.
