This week’s bargain phones: iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Note9 and Google Pixel 2 XL
Grab a bargain on an iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note9 or Google Pixel 2 XL with our round-up of this week's best premium smartphone deals.
Premium phones attract premium price tags – but only if you don't shop around. Between vendor-driven specials, store sales and direct resellers, there's a lot of competition in the smartphone world to grab your buying dollar, and that means shopping around and comparing is very smart indeed.
Each week, we check the prices for a selection of popular handsets across a range of Australian vendors to find the best prices.
Often shopping this way will limit your colour options since specific hues end up with price cuts or price premiums. If there's a colour listed next to a handset, it's usually because that specific hue is on sale.
Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 08 October 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.
Apple's new hotness is the iPhone XS Max, but that's a phone with a seriously high price tag. It's lovely (you can read our full review here), but it's not particularly affordable.
So what are you to do if you want some big-screen iOS action? The smart choice is to opt for Apple's excellent Apple iPhone 8 Plus. Its Apple A11 Fusion processor is still one of the industry's best, and it's substantially less expensive than the iPhone XS Max.

We're less than 24 hours away from the official reveal of the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL, and you can read our predictions around those devices right here.
The Google Pixel 2 XL may be in its final hours as Google's "flagship" Android device, but it's a phone that still has plenty of appeal, thanks to the fact that it's already running Android 9.0 ("Pie"), well ahead of any readily available Android handset. As the last of the stock, we're also seeing a lot of bargain buys around the Pixel 2 XL.
