Mobile phone price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

While it’s easy to get your smartphone on a contract in Australia, buying an unlocked phone outright can save you money in the long run.

Australia is a nation of early adopters with a penchant for the latest and greatest smartphones, and while the general preference is to pick up a flagship phone on a 24-month contract, it’s generally a cheaper proposition to buy the phone outright and pair it with a monthly SIM-only plan.

While we review all the top phones and have even created our own top 10 list of the best phones to buy, to help you compare and choose we’ve also crunched the numbers from major phone retailers to compare prices on a range of popular phones below.

Prices were last checked between 5 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
