This week’s bargain phones: iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, Google Pixel 2 XL

Alex Kidman 4 September 2018 NEWS

Snap up a deal on Apple's iPhone X, Google's Pixel 2 XL or Samsung's Galaxy S9 in our round-up of the best weekly deals.

Each week, we check the prices that leading Internet retailers charge for Australia's most popular handsets to find the bargains for you. Buying a phone outright frees you from lengthy contracts and opens up a world of bargains on SIM-only and prepaid mobile plans.

We've selected the lowest cost version of each handset in this week's round-up. That often limits your colour options. Some vendors do put a premium on certain colours, or a discount on others. 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 4 September 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.


iPhone X 64GB

We now know that Apple will launch its next generation of iPhone devices in the early hours of 13 September, which means that the iPhone X's time at the top of the iOS world is running out. Rumours suggest that the incoming Apple iPhone XS may not just unseat the iPhone X, but remove it from sale entirely.

Apple's newer phones are rumoured to be larger, which means that if you prefer the iPhone X's smaller stature, now is the time to buy. The trick is in finding a bargain on it, because Apple's phones always hold their value over time far more than their Android counterparts.
