This week’s bargain phones: Nokia 2.1, Moto G6, Huawei Nova 3e
Save on smartphones from Nokia, Motorola or Huawei in our round-up of the week's best deals.
Discounts on mobile phones don't have to be exclusively the province of premium handsets. The savings may be smaller, because you can't logically save hundreds on phones that only cost a couple of hundred in the first place. But if you're in the market for a budget or mid-range handset, you're more or less always going to be buying outright anyway, so saving every dollar you can makes a lot of sense.
Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 12 February 2019. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice.
The Nokia 2.1 is one of our favourite budget phones. It's not a super-powerful phone, but that's reflected in its asking price. However, it does stand out for being a genuinely good looking phone, something you can't always be assured of in this price range. With Android Oreo Go on board, it's also running specially optimised versions of key Android apps, so it's actually more nimble than many phones at the same price.

Motorola Moto G6
Motorola has just announced the Motorola Moto G7, but we're yet to hear any word of its availability in Australia.
The Moto G6 isn't the flashiest phone you can buy, but as we noted in our review, it's a quiet, solid performer of a phone that gets the basics very right, making it a good choice for mid-range buyers

Huawei is currently selling our favourite premium flagship phone in the form of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but that's a phone for the seriously cashed up set. If you want a taste of Huawei's style at a far more approachable price point, consider the lower-cost Huawei Nova 3e.
