This week’s bargain phones: iPhone XS, Samsung S9+ and Huawei Mate 20 Pro
There's still time to nab a pre-Christmas deal for an Apple iPhone XS, Samsung S9+ or Huawei Mate 20 Pro as we round up the best smartphone bargains.
Each week, we check the prices on the most popular and interesting smartphones available to Australian consumers. After all, who wants to pay too much for a smartphone?
If we list a colour after a phone below, that typically means you can only get the discounted price on that hue. Many direct importers put premiums on more desirable colours or conversely discount others to clear stock.
Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 10 December 2018. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.
Apple iPhone XS Max
The cream of the crop
If you want the very best smartphone money can buy, Apple's iPhone XS Max won't leave you wanting.
The iPhone XS gives you the same processor and camera as the iPhone XS Max, and it'll fit into your pocket a whole lot easier to boot.

Deals on Apple products, and especially the ultra-desirable iPhone are often hard to come by. That's especially true for the Apple iPhone 64GB, with only Kogan offering a true discount against the regular retail price. Given that shipping could knock most (or maybe all) of that discount away, and especially if you wanted one before 25 December, it might be a better bet to secure one from The Good Guys or directly from Apple.

We're just a few short months away from the reveal of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S10, a phone that (depending on whose rumours you believe) may feature camera "holes" or possibly just a side "notch" as its new design idea.
That leaves the Galaxy S9+ as the current Galaxy S-series king of the hill, and it's a highly impressive phone, easily one of our favourites of 2018.
If you're looking for a phone contract or more details, we've gathered everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S9+ here.
