Black Friday phone deals: Get a FREE Nintendo Switch with this Virgin Mobile contract
Get ready for this Princess Peach of a Black Friday phone deal: if you sign up for an Oppo Find X3 Lite 5G contract with either unlimited or 100GB of data, Virgin Mobile will throw in a Nintendo Switch free of charge. Seeing as the Switch retails for around £260 on its own, it’s the perfect offer if you want to take the gaming plunge.
If you opt for the 100GB of data option, the 36-month contract will work out at just £30/mth, which rises to £39/mth on a 24-month plan. If even that isn’t enough data, there’s an unlimited option for £44 per month on either a 36- or 24-month contract. Even better, if you already have Virgin TV or broadband, the unlimited price falls by £5. These Black Friday deals won’t last forever, though, so best be quick.
The main event, the Oppo Find X3 Lite 5G, comes with 128GB of storage and a 6.4in OLED screen that refreshes at a smooth 90Hz. Elsewhere, you’re getting superfast charging, a slim design, a 64-megapixel rear camera and decent, if unremarkable, performance. Its headline feature is support for 5G, which opens up a world of lightning-quick browsing.
However, the Nintendo Switch steals the phone’s thunder. Our favourite handheld console, it can also be used with a TV to play games at home or in tabletop mode. The latter involves propping the screen up on a flat surface, separating the two Joy-Con controllers and playing with a friend or on your own. Whether you’re exploring the grassland of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or battling Bowser as Mario, you’ll get at least 4.5 hours of battery life, which can rise to nine hours depending on the game.
This combination of the solid Oppo Find X3 Lite 5G, buckets of inexpensive data and the hugely impressive Nintendo Switch is too good to miss. Again, just make sure you take advantage of it as soon as possible.
