Score a super-affordable iPhone in this week's roundup of the best smartphone bargains.

Apple iPhone SE 16GB $429Apple-iPhone-SE_Gold

No, that's not a typo. You can this week get onto the iOS train for just $429, which has to be one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for one of Apple's handsets. That's the price that Kogan is selling the iPhone SE for this week, although it is only the 16GB model, which marks it out as somewhat older stock, given that Apple doubled the memory allocation in the iPhone SE range earlier this year. 16GB isn't a lot of space to play with, but if all you need is a replacement iPhone or your needs are modest, it's a great entry price, saving you $250 off Apple's standard local pricing.

Samsung Galaxy S8 $969samsung galaxy s8

The Galaxy S8 remains the top of our list of the best phones of 2017 by the slimmest of margins, but it would sit there much more comfortably if it were a little less expensive. Which, not coincidentally, it is this week via Kogan, where you can score a silver 64GB model for just $969, $230 lower than the local pricing.

LG G6 $629lg-g6

LG's G6 launched at this year's Mobile World Congress, and while phones such as the Galaxy S8 have somewhat overshadowed it of late, it remains a fine premium choice at price points that are increasingly ranging more towards the mid-range. Kogan's deal this week on the LG G6 is an excellent example at just $629, which is a bargain in anybody's language.
