This week’s bargain phones: Apple iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S8, Huawei P20 Pro
Save on smartphones from Apple, Samsung or Huawei in our round-up of the week's best deals.
Times are tough and money is tight, right? Well, we're here to show you the best bargains on selected smartphones available to consumers. If you're carefully counting every dollar spent (and if you're not, what's wrong with you?), it makes a lot of sense to buy your handset outright and match it with an affordable SIM-only contract plan or prepaid mobile plan. You could pay the full "retail" price, or save yourself a whole lot of money buying direct.
Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 5 February 2019. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.
Apple's oldest handset that it still sells itself is the Apple iPhone 7, and it's the lowest-cost way to get into the iOS world right now. Its status as an older iPhone also means that there's more than a few bargains to be had in a sector where discounts are traditionally few and far between.

The Galaxy S10 is just over a fortnight away from its launch, with retail availability expected in early March.
We have no doubt it will be a premium handset, but if you're keen on a bargain, it makes sense to look a little further back in Samsung's smartphone history. The company has been producing top-flight handsets for some years now, so while you don't get the latest and greatest, you still get a seriously good smartphone for your money.
The Galaxy S8 was one of our favourite phones of 2017, and it's still on sale through Samsung right now. Its older status, and the fact that it's an Android phone means that there are some serious savings to be made on it if you're keen.

The Huawei P20 Pro's successor is still a little ways away, and we're still impressed with what was one of 2018's best flagship phones. It's an easy recommendation if you want a smartphone with superior camera quality, thanks to its combination of high resolution and monochrome lenses, giving it superb photographic flexibility.
Huawei doesn't sell its own phones locally, but the P20 Pro is widely available from a number of retailers at $899, so for the purposes of comparison we're using that as its baseline price.
