If you're quick, there's still time to grab one of the awesome Cyber Monday phone deals that are on offer from carriers and retailers. Some phone deals have expired, but a few bargains remain on devices from Samsung, Apple and more.

You can expect a good four or five years from any of the top handsets you buy today. As ever, there's no telling how long these deals will last so if you're in dire need of an upgrade, this could be your best chance.
