This week’s bargain phones: Save on iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 or Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Matt Sayer 27 February 2018 NEWS

Compare prices and save on Apple, Samsung or Huawei's flagship phones in our weekly round-up of the best deals.

Every week, we round up the best prices to be found on a range of premium handsets available to Australian consumers.

While buying a new phone on a plan can often seem more attractive than purchasing a phone outright, you're paying a hefty premium for the convenience of splitting the costs over a 12-, 24- or 36-month contract. If you can afford it, buying a phone outright will save you a significant chunk of cash, often many hundreds of dollars.

Better yet, when you own an unlocked handset, you can take advantage of the increasing number of no-lock-in contracts offered by Australian mobile providers and switch plans whenever a better deal rolls around – something that happens nearly every month these days.

To help you afford the steep ticket price of an outright handset, we've gathered up the best deals on three premium handsets this week from some of Australia's largest mobile retailers. Check them out below, but just remember that prices are accurate as per each retailer's website on 27 February 2018 and are subject to change without notice.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro

As an upgraded version of the Huawei Mate 10, the Mate 10 Pro offers a slightly larger screen and more RAM than its smaller sibling. It also packs an intelligent camera capable of automatically identifying and applying the best settings for your photos, making it a whole lot easier for even amateur photographers to take some impressive happy snaps.

A premium handset like the Mate 10 Pro attracts premium pricing, and if the outright asking price is a little too steep for your budget, you might want to check out the contract plans Optus is currently offering with the handset.

Otherwise, here are the best deals this week for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro from retailers selling to Australian customers.

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S9 might only be a couple of weeks away, but the Galaxy S8 isn't obsolete yet. It's still a powerful handset with more than enough features to satisfy the needs of most mobile users, sporting the same high-quality screen and premium design as its impending successor.

Just as importantly, it's also significantly cheaper than the Galaxy S9, especially with this week's deals. Check them out below:

Apple iPhone 8 64GB

Apple keeps a pretty tight leash on the pricing of its iPhone handsets, and it can be tough to find a good deal even when springing for an outright handset. It's no surprise, then, that purchasing an iPhone on a contract plan is so popular, but this week you can do even better by snapping up a 64GB iPhone 8 outright from Kogan for less than $800. For Apple's flagship handset, that's a seriously tough bargain to beat.

Check out this week's Apple iPhone 8 deals below:

Device Retailer Price Buy Now
Apple iPhone 8 64GB Silver Kogan $785 Buy Now!
Apple iPhone 8 64GB Black DWI $985
Apple iPhone 8 64GB Space Grey The Good Guys $1047 Buy Now!
