Optus also offers the option to lease either the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus over 24-month terms. You'll pay a little extra per month on a lease plan, but it's worth considering your likely usage, as you don't own the phone at any point on a lease plan and have to return it (or offer to buy it) at the end of your lease period. If there's any damage to the handset, it could quickly dwarf the savings you make by leasing.

Here's Optus' lease pricing for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus:
