This week’s bargain phones: iPhone X, Samsung S9+ and Google Pixel 2 XL
Score a low-cost iPhone X, Galaxy S9+ or Pixel 2 XL with our round-up of the best weekly deals.
Each week, we examine the prices charged by leading online retailers for the most popular premium smartphones in Australia to find you the best bargains. High-end smartphones can cost a lot, but we make it easy to spot the real bargains.
We've selected the lowest cost version of each handset in this week's round-up. That often limits your colour options. Some vendors 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 18 September 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.
Apple officially announced the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR at its "Gather Round" event, with the usual quantity of hype and some pretty serious price points too. You can read all our coverage of that event at our Apple launch news hub.
Rather more silently, Apple also dropped a number of older iPhone lines. The iPhone 6s was no surprise, and neither was the iPhone SE, but also put out to pasture was the iPhone X. It only had a single year at the top of Apple's iPhone family tree before being culled, which means that the only stock you'll see from now on is from external retailers.

The Galaxy S9+ still tops our list of the best smartphone of 2018, but by a slim margin over competitors such as the Huawei P20 Pro or Samsung's own Galaxy Note9.
The advantage you get is that as a slightly older premium phone – it only came out in March – it's a little easier to pick up a bargain on what is an exceptional handset.
