This week’s bargain phones: Grab an S8+ for less before the Note 8 hits

Plus low-cost iPhones and HTC's U Ultra on sale.

Apple iPhone SE (32GB) $479Apple-iPhone-SE_Gold

If you're very quick (and somewhat lucky) you can pick up an iPhone 5s from ALDI this week, but that's only a 16GB refurbished model, and you've got to head in-store and try to find one. Better value, we think, is a 32GB iPhone SE, which is the same hardware with double the storage and brand spanking new for just $479, and that's the price Kogan is charging this week for Apple's smallest iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy S8+ (64GB) $999samsung galaxy s8 plus

We're just days away from Samsung taking the official veil off the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in New York, and the phone it will disrupt the most will be the Samsung Galaxy S8+. It's the current king of the hill when it comes to battery life in our lab tests, though, and the Note 8 isn't likely to see discounts for quite some time. So if you're keen on the Samsung Android family and want superior battery life right now, Kogan's deal on the S8+, which sees a chunky $350 sliced off the pricing (not including any shipping costs), is a very solid deal.

HTC U Ultra 64GB $559htc-u-ultra

The HTC U Ultra was HTC's first take on a premium 2017 smartphone, but it's been overshadowed by other premium handsets, including HTC's own followup, the HTC U11. That means it's a ripe target for bargain prices, and this week, Kogan has it on sale for just $559. At that price point, it's quite the bargain.
