Save more on your mobile bills by buying your next phone outright.

Apple is some months away from revealing the iPhone XI. Or will it be iPhone 11? Only Tim Cook knows for sure. In the meantime, if you want to score a "cheaper" iPhone, you're much better off looking to previous generations of Apple's iconic smartphone.

That's not the entire story for Samsung though, with its lower-cost Samsung Galaxy S10e showing you can grab one of this year's flagship phones for less.

Huawei has solidly entrenched itself as the challenger brand in the mobile space, and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro remains one of our favourite phones.

All deals listed below are accurate as per vendor websites on 14 May 2019. Discounts are based on original manufacturer RRP or revised retail price – whichever is lower. Price and availability can change without warning, so bear that in mind before making any purchasing decisions.


Apple iPhone 8

Apple's iPhones are easy to use, powerful and well established in the minds of smartphone buyers locally. The iPhone 8 isn't the newest of Apple's iPhones, but it's a good choice if you're not a fan of Apple's FaceID, or if you just want a smaller iPhone model.
