4 ways to get Christmassy with your phone
Get Christmassy with your phone

We’re on the home stretch now, people. Christmas is less than a month away – and what better way to get in the spirit of things than by getting Christmassy with your most prized possession. Here are four ways you can get festive with your phone.

Speakers for your Christmas playlist

Whether it’s a bit of Mariah, Bublé or Shakin’ Stevens (no judgement), no December is complete without an abundance of the classics, on repeat.

It’s time to fill your home with incredible sound quality, with a little help from our range of wireless speakers. Get big, deep audio from the compact KitSound Boomcube. Be bowled over by the extra bass on the SRS-XB10. Or, add your own personal assistant into the mix with an Amazon Echo 2nd Generation. Alexa’s got loads more ways up her sleeve to get you feeling Christmassy.

Christmas Countdown app

We know you’re counting down the days. We are too. But guess what, you don’t have to anymore with the free Christmas Countdown app.

Get ready for Christmas to take over your device with eight festive backgrounds, Christmas tunes and falling snow on the countdown screen. Plus, you’ll even get a new advent calendar gift on every day of December – from fun wallpapers to ideas and tips to get you feeling merry.

Download the Christmas Countdown (2018) app on Android and iOS.

Give and get yourself a pre-Christmas gift

It’s a time for giving. So go big and do the ultimate this year: give your current handset to a loved one and then treat yourself to new flagship, bursting with all the latest bells and whistles.

Make December magical with world-class photos taken on the Huawei P20 Pro’s triple-lens camera. Discover the world around you with Google Lens on the new Google Pixel 3. Watch your favourite Christmas flicks on the Samsung Galaxy S9’s amazing edge-to-edge Infinity display. Or, send Instagram into a frenzy with stunning bokeh selfies taken on the new iPhone Xs. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, indeed.

Check out our full range of incredible handsets.

Christmas app happy

When it comes to Christmas apps, we think the more the merrier. And there’s a sleigh-full out there. Turn yourself, friends and family into dancing elves with Elf Yourself (iOS/Android). Track Father Christmas around the world as he prepares for the big day with Santa Tracker Christmas (iOS/Android). Or, wow little ones with a personalised call from Santa (iOS/Android).

So there’s our list of ways to start feeling the joy. Go ahead and do one, or all of them, today. Have we missed any ideas off our list? Which one do you feel most excited about? Let us know in the comments belo-ho-ho!
