SIM free & SIM only

What is a SIM free phone?

What is a SIM free phone?

A SIM free phone doesn’t come with a SIM card. You buy the phone and SIM card separately. The benefit of a SIM free phone is that you pay for the phone upfront, with the only monthly cost coming from your SIM card. It's ideal if you want to upgrade your phone but keep your number or contract package.

What is a SIM card?

What is a SIM card?

A SIM card is a small chip that inserts into your phone to give your phone its identity – its identify being your mobile phone number. Without a SIM card you can’t make calls, send texts or connect to the internet (3G, 4G, 5G).

What is pay as you go?

With a pay as you go phone, you buy bundles of minutes, texts and data which last 7 or 30 days depending on your network and which bundle you choose. You can set up direct debits or top up your credit before your pack runs out. If you don’t use all your texts and minutes by the expiry date, you will lose them, however some networks rollover the data you didn’t use to your new bundle.

Specs, reviews and more

We’ve simplified the in-depth features and specs that mobile phones offer. From battery and charging, storage and processors, we’ve demystified the nitty gritty details to help make your decision easier.

Mobile phone processors.

Mobile phone processors

What is a processor? - The processor is your phone's brain. The better the processor, the smoother and faster your phone will run.

Processor specs - Every process has a number of cores, dual (2), quad (4), hexa (6) or octa (8), and the more it has, the smoother it can do more things at one time.

Processor speed is also important. This is measured in GHz and a faster processor is a more powerful processor.

RAM is the final piece of the processor puzzle and once again, more of it means better performance. More RAM will provide a much smoother transition when using multiple applications at once.

To get the performance you want, you need a phone with enough cores, speed and RAM to satisfy your usage. Below we've put together a handy guide to help you decide if a phone has enough power for what you need it for.

Battery & charging.

Battery & charging

Battery size - A bigger battery often means more battery life. Battery size is measured in mAH (milli-amp hours) and is included on most of our product pages.

How do screen quality and processing power affect battery life? Screen brightness and fast performance can sometimes place a greater demand on the battery. This means that mid-range models often have better battery life than top-of-the-range phones.

Battery saving tips

  • Use Wi-Fi instead of 4 or 5G.
  • Use power-saver mode.
  • Turn down screen brightness.
  • Close background apps.
  • Turn off your location.

If you're going away or find yourself always running out of battery, a portable power bank is a great way to make sure your phone can last all day.

Mobile phone storage

Mobile phones come with two types of storage: internal and cloud.

Mobile phone storage.

Internal storage 

  • Internal is the amount of physical storage space on your phone. You can get phones with 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 and 512GB of storage.
  • With 8, 16 and 32GB you may find that space fills up quickly if you take lots of photos and videos.
  • 64GB and 128GB phones provide ample space for even the most snappy users, with more room for apps, games and podcasts too.
  • Devices with 256 and 512GB have more than enough space for all the essentials, as well as high-quality video files.

Cloud storage
Cloud storage enables you to store your files on the internet, on a host server. Most Android and Apple phones come with a set amount of free cloud storage, through either Google Drive or the iCloud. Storing items in the cloud frees up physical storage and lets you access your files from other devices.

Phone screens

The size and quality of screen you need often depends on how you'll be using your phone.

Screen size

Over time, mobile phone screens have gotten bigger to improve video watching experience. And if you regularly use your phone for watching YouTube, TV shows or movies, then a big-screen is a must-have.

The benefits of a more compact design is that it's likely to fit more comfortably in your hand and pockets.

Screen quality

Resolution and pixel density are the best way to determine screen quality. The higher the resolution and the more pixels per inch, the sharper the screen will appear.

For increased immersion and a greater viewing experience, choose a model with a curved or infinity screen.

Screen protection.

Screen protection

There's nothing worse than a cracked screen, so look out for devices with toughened glass which provides extra protection against drops.

Some phones are also shock resistant, water-resistant or waterproof. But before you make a choice, do check the specs for the depth and distance it can handle.
