This week’s bargain phones: Save on iPhone 8, Galaxy Note 8 or Xperia XZ2 Compact
Make the most of your phone buying dollar with this week's best deals on premium phones from Samsung, Apple and Sony.
Premium phones cost premium money, but that doesn't mean you have to simply wear the manufacturer's recommended price. With fierce competition in the online space, you can save big bucks when buying your next phone outright.
To compare, we've chosen the lowest cost version of each handset available with each online vendor. This often limits your colour choices because some vendors charge more for specific finishes with discounts not available across the range. If we've listed a colour after the model name, the price we've seen is most likely for that colour only.
Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 3 July 2018. Availability and pricing is subject to change without notice.
Apple's smallest 2018 iPhone is the iPhone 8, but that doesn't mean its asking price is all that small. Apple still sells itself as a premium brand across the board, with prices to match.
That can make bargain hunting a tough prospect, but that doesn't mean it's not a worthwhile endeavour.
If you're on the fence about the iPhone 8, we've gathered up everything you need to know about the iPhone 8, including contract plans here.

We now know when the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will make its debut, although other than rumours around Bluetooth on the S-Pen there's not a lot of extra information around Samsung's to-be-launched large flagship phone.
The imminent arrival of the Galaxy Note 9 means that it's an ideal time to invest in the Galaxy Note 8 because there's serious price pressure on what remains a very capable handset.

Premium phones like the Note 8 have tended towards the massive because most vendors equate premium prices with larger displays. Not everyone wants that much glass in their pocket or bag, and typically that's meant putting up with sub-par performance if you want a smaller phone.
Not so with the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, which is easily the best small premium phone you can buy right now. It's even better than the larger Xperia XZ2 in our opinion. We've just reviewed the Xperia XZ2 Compact, which you can read here if you want more detail on why we think this is such a superb phone.
