Most smartphones cannot enjoy price stability for long. Quite soon after the market launch
can save a few euros on certain models. And the decline in prices does not stand still the longer
a model is on the market.
We have current top-class models from well-known manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei and OnePlus
made a selection and checked how much they currently cost. We did not take marketplace offers into account when comparing prices.
Some models still position themselves as the current flagships of the manufacturers, but have been on the market a little longer,
which is why the savings can be greater. In the case of younger models, prospective customers sometimes have to wait until the red pencil
is based on the manufacturer’s recommended retail price.
We also have the smartphones in tables
mapped by publication date so that you can compare their specifications at a glance.
