This week’s bargain phones: Save on iPhone X, Galaxy S9+ or LG V30+

Alex Kidman 8 May 2018 NEWS

Score a bargain deal on the best premium smartphones from Apple, Samsung or LG in our weekly round-up of the best deals around.

Premium handsets are highly desirable objects, but they're not just called premium because they're shiny. They're also pretty expensive in their own right, which is why it makes sense to shop around for a bargain, whether you're after a phone on a mobile plan, or looking to buy outright.

If you're in the outright space, you've got numerous direct importers as well as local outlets competing for your dollar, but who offers the best deals? Each week, we scour the web to find the best prices on Australia's most popular handsets.

For this comparison, we select the lowest cost version of each handset available with an online vendor. You'll often find your colour choices limited, as some vendors charge more for specific finishes, with discounts not available across the range.

Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 8 May 2018. Availability and pricing is subject to change without notice.


iPhone X 64GB

We're still some months away from the reveal of 2018's crop of iPhones, which leaves the iPhone X at the top of the Apple family tree. Given Apple's positioning as a prime brand, that also leaves it as one of Australia's most pricey handsets.

If your budget can't cover the outright cost of an iPhone X, we've gathered up everything you need to know about the iPhone X, including contract plans here.

Here are the best deals this week for the iPhone X 64GB from retailers selling to Australian customers.

Samsung Galaxy S9+

Samsung's flagship fleet is headed up by the Samsung Galaxy S9+ as the fierce battle between Apple and Samsung supremacy continues. It's a newer handset than the iPhone X, but in the Android space, it's seeing significant competition from all sides, which means that there's a lot of discounting going on. If you're happy to buy outright, it's pretty easy to score a bargain.

If you'd prefer a Galaxy S9+ on contract, we've collected everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S9+ here.

Here are this week's deals on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ for you to compare:

LG V30+

LG's newest handset, the LG G7 ThinQ will arrive on our shores in June, with pricing yet to be announced. Like much of LG's range, we can expect competitive pricing, but its arrival also means that we're seeing more bargains emerge for its predecessor, the LG V30/V30+. The only difference that plus symbol makes is in doubling the storage capacity, but more storage is rarely unwelcome.

If you need to know more about the LG V30+ before you buy, we've collected everything you need to know about the LG V30+ here.
