How to get the new iPhone SE 64GB handset for the same price as the 16GB

Written by: Paloma Kubiak
The iPhone SE goes on sale tomorrow and while it’s been hailed as the “cheapest” and “most powerful” Apple handset to date, there is a way to get more storage for the same price as the 16GB model.

You can expect to pay from £359 for the 16GB handset and from £439 for the 64GB. But comparison site found that you can land yourself a 64GB handset for the same price as a 16GB, or just a few pence more per month.

Below are the best deals currently on offer (prices checked 9am, 30 March 2016):

High data users 

Carphone Warehouse and offer a 64GB iPhone SE with 11GB of data, and unlimited minutes for £36 per month on the Vodafone network.

The best deal available for the 16GB model costs exactly the same price, also available on the Vodafone network.

There’s just a 1p a month difference between a 16GB and a 64GB handset for a bundle offering 10GB of data.

A 16GB iPhone SE bought through EE, with 10GB of data and unlimited minutes will cost £39.99 per month. But a 64GB handset bought through Carphone Warehouse on O2 will cost you £40.

Low data user

If your data needs are smaller, you could buy a 64GB iPhone SE from Carphone Warehouse, on Vodafone, with 3GB of data and unlimited minutes and you’ll pay just £1.63 per month more than the best price currently available for a 16GB iPhone SE on the same tariff.

Shahrum Gilani, founder of which compares more than one million mobile phone contracts from over 40 retailers said: “There are literally hundreds of contracts for every single handset. It can be difficult to know which are good value and which aren’t.

“If you’re smart and use a comparison tool then you can be sure of finding the best deals available to the public at any one time.”
