Any day of the week or year, getting a games console for free is a delectable opportunity, and one to take seriously. Getting it tied into a mobile phone upgrade - something you're likely to need at some point anyway - is an even better thing. And if that is the case for you, and you need a new phone (or if a family or friend does) then you need to check out these deals from iDmobile. Right now, the mobile company is offering one of four Sony Xperia phones, with a range of data options, and are throwing in a free PS4 bundle with this year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare thrown in, all from £19.99 a month. There are small up front costs to the phone ranging from 20 to 50 quid which, while not ideal, is not too much of a pill to swallow nowadays.
Often, these free gift mobile deals come with, let's say, less-than-great phones. Certainly not the flagship-level that most want to consider when looking at a phone upgrade. But these offerings demonstrate a move away from that as they are all worthy devices and certainly good enough for most everyday mobile users. Our pick is probably the Xperia 10 that starts at £22.99 a month. This is the 64GB version of the phone that comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 13 megapixel main camera and 5 megapixel front camera combo, a 6-inch Full HD screen, and a decent 2870 mAh battery. It also retains the audio jack that so many phones are ditching nowadays (cough, iPhones, cough). It's a great, solidly performing Android phone. It might not be a truly flagship phone, or one of the best gaming phones, but, in a world where manufacturers' more regular handsets are at flagship-lite levels, all these Xperia models are excellent in their own right, easily agreeable, and competent enough to commit to for a 24 months and to bag you all that glorious loot.
Do note that this offer runs only until the 19th of Decemeber.
