Picking up a flagship phone doesn't have to leave your wallet gasping for air if you're smart about it. Every week, we compare the prices for some of the best phones to help you score the sharpest bargains.

Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 5 March 2019. Availability and pricing are subject to change without notice. All discounts are calculated off current or original manufacturer pricing, whichever is the lower.


Samsung Galaxy S9

The Samsung Galaxy S10 lands in Australia this week, which means you're running out of time to pre-order one if you're very keen. There's a decent Galaxy S10 deal on eBay for 15% off if you're quick, but that doesn't mean that the Galaxy S9 isn't worth considering.

LG G7 ThinQ

LG has thrown a lot of fancy new technology at the LG G8 ThinQ, including the ability to read the veins in your hands as an unlocking mechanism. No, really, that's a feature of its new flagship phone.

We've already had some hands-on time with the new flagship, which you can read about here.

The LG G7 ThinQ is still a good buy at the right price, though, especially as we don't have a precise timeframe for the LG G8 ThinQ's debut down under.

Nokia 8 Sirocco

It's tough to stand out at MWC at the best of times, but HMD Global – the licensors of the Nokia name for mobile phones – certainly did its best with the Nokia 9 Pureview. It's a camera phone first and foremost, and again we've had a little hands-on time with Nokia's new marvel.

We don't have precise timing for its Australian debut, but its global pricing suggests it might be a return to flagships that sit in the sub-$1,000 space. That puts a lot of pressure on its flagship predecessor, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, a phone that originally launched here at $1,199.
