Every week, finder searches for Australia's best deals on premium phones. This week, 6S and S7 Edge get even cheaper and the LG G5 is out there for a bargain price.

iphone-6sApple iPhone 6s 16GB $879

Apple isn't typically known for slashing prices on the premium handsets. However, these last couple of weeks we've seen the 6s take a series of drops from various retailers. Loosening up its rigid pricing structure would be one way to stay ahead of its rivals, who are closing in on the tech giant. Whatever the case is, it's hard to argue with a $300 saving on Apple's latest. The Apple iPhone 6s gives you an 12MP camera with dual-tone flash, the powerful A9 chip, Live Photos and Force Touch.

Check out Kogan's deal on the iPhone 6s.

CP-S7-EDGESamsung Galaxy S7 Edge $829

Hot off the heels of the Note 7 announcement, this impressive phablet is edging even closer to affordable territory. When we first reviewed the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, our only complaint was that it was one the priciest handsets and the market (though with good reason). Its premium build, curved edges and seriously impressive performance all made the high cost somewhat understandable.

CP-LG-G5LG G5 $619

The LG G5, while one of the more popular Android smartphones, doesn't get as much love as Samsung, HTC and Sony. That's not to say the LG G5 doesn't have its fans. We really appreciated the innovation behind the G5's modular battery and its formidable performance when reviewed it back in back in May. However, one thing that really stands out about the G5 in August 2016 is its relatively low price.

You can currently pick up the LG G5 for $619 from Kogan. That's a massive drop from LG's asking price of $1009.
