Matt Sayer 27 December 2018 NEWS

Holiday sales bring plenty of steep discounts on a variety of excellent smartphones.

Smartphones are often the most expensive piece of technology many of us can't live without. That's why we here at Finder hunt down the best deals each and every week to help you save money on some of the most popular handsets on the market.

By comparing outright pricing from a variety of Aussie retailers, we've rounded up the cheapest options as at 27 December 2018. Just be aware that pricing and availability can change at a moment's notice, especially during this busy Christmas period.


Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB

Rumours are starting to swirl around Samsung's presumably imminent Galaxy S10 handset, but there's still plenty to like about the Samsung Galaxy S9. With a sharper camera and more power under the hood than the already-impressive Galaxy S8, the S9 is a solid choice for Aussies wanting a premium smartphone bolstered by Samsung's strong support.

This week sees the Samsung Galaxy S9 benefit from some significant discounts, making it an even more attractive option.

Apple iPhone 6 32GB

While Apple releases new iPhones each and every year, the average person likely doesn't need all the flashy features and extra horsepower the company crams into its flagship handsets. If all you do on your phone is check emails, browse news and social media and play the occasional mobile game, sticking with an older model can be perfectly viable.

That's why this week's deals on the Apple iPhone 6 are worth checking out. At a budget price, it's an affordable way of enjoying Apple's iconic style and streamlined design without forking out $1,000+.

Nokia 7.1 32GB

The Nokia brand has made quite the comeback since HMD Global took it over. Its initial batch of Android-powered handsets might not have taken the industry by storm, but its dedication to refinement with the ".1" versions of those handsets is undeniably impressive.

This is particularly apparent with the Nokia 7.1. By increasing performance, upgrading the camera and shoring up the build quality, HMD Global has delivered a capable smartphone at a very attractive price. Coupled with this week's discounts, it makes the Nokia 7.1 an excellent choice for anyone interested in a reliable mid-range smartphone.
