This week’s bargain phones: iPhone 8, Samsung Note 8, Huawei P20 Pro
Don't pay full retail price on your next smartphone when you can save on top phones from Apple, Samsung and Huawei in our weekly bargain round-up.
Premium phones cost premium money, but quite how much you spend is up to you. No, we're not advocating some kind of smash and grab scenario. You might damage the precious smartphones that way! Instead, the sensible (and entirely legal) way to proceed if you fancy a shiny new smartphone is to shop around to ensure you're getting the best possible outright price for your new device.
Each week, we check the prices online merchants are charging for a range of premium handsets so we can highlight the best bargains, as well as some prices that aren't quite so bargain-friendly.
We've pre-selected the lowest cost version of each handset, which can often limit your colour choices. Some vendors do put a premium on certain hues, so if there's a colour listed, it's usually because that specific hue is on sale.
Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 31 July 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.
There are seemingly fresh leaks - some more reliable than others - about Apple's upcoming crop of 2018 iPhone models, with the most prominent rumour being that this will be the year when Apple removes the TouchID fingerprint sensor across all its phone lines.
If you favour fingers over faces for verification, that makes the existing iPhone 8 line of phones a solid buy. They'll still be current for iOS upgrades for a good couple of years yet, and they're particularly fine and powerful phones in a smaller form factor if you favour that.
As always, it's tough to find a really great bargain on any Apple phone, as they tend to retain value over time much longer than their Android counterparts. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't look.

The countdown clock is ticking on the formal reveal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, although we already know quite a lot about it already.
The Note 9 will supplant the Galaxy S9+ as Samsung's "flagship" phone, but it will also replace last year's Galaxy Note 8. While you won't get the flagship features of the Galaxy Note 9 if you buy one right now, you also won't be faced with its price tag, expected to be somewhere north of $1,500 outright.

Huawei's been on a slow burn towards greatness with its premium phones for several years now. In 2018 it unveiled its masterpiece in the form of the Huawei P20 Pro, widely regarded to be the best camera phone you can buy right now.
Still, it attracts a premium price, so it makes sense to shop around.
