This week’s bargain phones: iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy Note9, Huawei P20 Pro

Alex Kidman 11 September 2018 NEWS

Grab a bargain iPhone 8, Note9 or P20 Pro with our roundup of the best weekly deals.

Every week, we check prices across leading online retailers for the most popular handsets in Australia. Typically, these are the aspirational premium models, which typically means premium prices. That's why if you're planning on buying outright and saving with a prepaid mobile or SIM-only plan, it makes sense to save as much as possible.

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 11 September 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.


iPhone 8 64GB

Apple's launching its new range of iPhones this week at its "gather round" event, which you can watch online if you're keen on getting up at 3am on Thursday. Not your style? Not to worry, because we'll be bringing you all the news as it breaks.

A new iPhone generation means that the previous models are typically reduced down to single storage variants at a discount, but it also means that vendors are rather keen to shift stock to make way for the new devices.

All of the new iPhones look to be larger-screened devices, which could make the smaller iPhone 8 really stand out if you prefer a more pocket-friendly device. As always, though, Apple's devices tend to hold value over time, so full-on bargains are rather more difficult to find.

Keen to learn more about the iPhone 8? We've gathered up everything you need to know about the iPhone 8, including contract plans here.

Here are the best deals this week for the iPhone 8 64GB from retailers selling to Australian customers.

Huawei P20 Pro

Huawei is set to announce the Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro in just over a month's time, but right now, its flagship phone is the Huawei P20 Pro. It's a device that's currently mired in a little controversy, with benchmark body 3DMark delisting the device due to processor tweaking to juice its benchmark scores. Naughty, Huawei!

We've reviewed the Huawei P20 Pro previously, and while we do now have to take those benchmark results with a serious grain of salt, the rest of its performance, and especially its camera flexibility and power are currently peerless.
