iPhone 8: Contract or outright?

If you're keen on Apple's iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus in Australia, does it make more financial sense to opt for a contract or buy the phone outright?

The Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus launched in late 2017, alongside the Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K. The phones are available on contract from the leading Australian telcos, as well as outright through a retailer. You can compare the two options in the tables below - the key factor to look for when comparing contract vs outright is the total minimum cost.
