This week’s bargain phones: iPhone X, Samsung S9 and Huawei P20 Pro

Alex Kidman 2 October 2018 NEWS

Save on an iPhone X, Samsung S9 or Huawei P20 Pro with our round-up of the week's best deals.

Premium phones are popular because they're the super cars of the smartphone world. Just like a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, they're a status symbol with a hefty price tag attached – unless you shop around. Each week, we check the prices being charged by leading Australian and international online retailers to locate the best bargains on some of Australia's most popular handsets.

We've selected the lowest cost version of each handset in this week's round-up. Typically, that will limit your colour options. Vendors often 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 2 October 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.


iPhone X 64GB

We've put the brand-new iPhone XS Max through its paces, and it's an incredible phone at an incredible price point. It will be some time before we see much (if any) price drop for the iPhone XS Max or iPhone XS, especially with the iPhone XR due at the end of the month.

However, if you're after a fast iPhone, you could opt for the iPhone X, 2017's flagship phone that Apple itself no longer sells.
