Alex Kidman 12 March 2019 NEWS

Save on smartphones from Apple, Samsung or Google in our round-up of the week's best deals.

There are all sorts of reasons to buy your next phone outright. It frees you from any kind of carrier locking contract, gives you the flexibility to switch networks to get the best deals, and you can save plenty by choosing the right month-to-month SIM only or prepaid SIM deal.

The savings can start when you pick up your new phone too. Each week, we check the prices on a range of popular handsets to ferret out the bargain buys.

Prices are as advertised on each vendor's website on 12 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.


Apple iPhone 7

If the iPhone is your smartphone platform of choice, the harsh reality is that true bargains are few and far between for current models. Apple's pricing for its retail partners doesn't leave much of a margin for discounting on the current stock.

However, for older iPhones there's a bit more scope to save, especially if you're happy enough with a refurbished phone. In that case, it's wise to check the specifics of the offered warranty, especially if it might have to head overseas for any repair work.
