The pre-Diwali online sales have kick started and if you are still thinking whether to buy that long asked for gift or upgrade your own device, this is the right time. Amazon is hosting its Great India Sale while Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale is also offering equally impressive deals. With a number of exciting deals being offered across e-commerce platforms, it can turn out to be a difficult task to sit and decode which one to pick. To help ease your pressure, here’s a look at top smartphones you could buy in the online sale period, along with the best offers to make it economical for you.

Apple iPhones are the most expensive, and hence, the most sought after during online sale frenzy. While the newest iPhone 8 lineup will go up for pre-orders tomorrow, they are unlikely to be featured in the sales period. However, you can try upgrading to a generation or two older iPhone models, which are compatible with iOS 11 so that you don’t miss out on the new software experience.

iPhone 6 (32GB)

Lowest effective price: Rs 14,793 (Amazon)

If you buy the Apple iPhone 6 (32GB), you can get the best deal out of Amazon India where it is available at Rs 25,134 with 10 percent cashback if you use HDFC credit or debit card and an exchange offer of up to Rs 10,341, which will bring down the cost to Rs 22,620 with bank offers and around Rs 15,000 if you exchange an eligible device. You must, however, check all the terms before applying any of the offers on the product page. There are also data deals from Reliance Jio (Flipkart) and Idea Cellular (Amazon) applicable on select products.

iPhone 7 (32GB)

Lowest effective price: Rs 23,799 (Flipkart)

The last-gen model is available at a price of Rs 38,999 on Amazon and Flipkart. While Paytm Mall has the device listed at Rs 48,400, it is offering a Rs 10,500 cashback, bringing down the cost to Rs 37,966. However, on Amazon, there’s an exchange offer, which can get you the iPhone 7 Black color model with 32GB storage, at an effective price of Rs 28,658. However, on Flipkart, the exchange amount is up to Rs 15,300, which means if you exchange with eligible device, you can buy the iPhone 7 at Rs 23,799.

iPhone 7 Plus (32GB)

Lowest effective price: Rs 40,699 (Flipkart)

Flipkart’s exchange offer can grant you the lowest price for the iPhone 7 Plus. It is to note that there are color specific offers on Apple iPhones. So the Rose Gold model of the iPhone 7 Plus can be purchased with exchange offer of up to Rs 15,300, which brings down the cost of the phone to Rs 40,699 based on eligible devices.

iPhone SE (32GB)

Lowest effective price: Rs 8,658 (Amazon)

Priced at Rs 18,999, you will get exchange discount of up to Rs 10,341 on Amazon, while Flipkart only has bank and partner offers. On Amazon, you can get the iPhone SE at Rs 8,658 upon exchanging the eligible device. ALSO READ: Best deals on Apple MacBooks, AirPods across Amazon India, Flipkart, Infibeam

OnePlus 5

Lowest effective price: Rs 19,658

OnePlus 5 being exclusive to Amazon, will evidently be available at the best possible price on the platform. It is available at an exchange discount of up to Rs 13,341, effectively costing Rs 19,658. There are special offers applicable as well, such as no cost EMI on specific credit cards. If you choose to buy from the OnePlus online store, then you pay Rs 32,999 – same as the no exchange price on Amazon, but you can add a few free accessories to the package.

Honor 8 Pro

Lowest effective price: Rs 7,099

You can buy the Honor 8 Pro at the lowest price if you exchange an eligible device on Flipkart. There’s up to Rs 23,000 off on exchange, which means you can possibly buy it for just Rs 7,099. The fine print here is that these exchange schemes are applicable on devices which are priced similarly. So essentially, if only you exchange an iPhone 7 Plus for the Honor 8 Pro, will you get the maximum price. Nonetheless, if you exchange for older Asus or Gionee phones, you can still get a pretty decent discount.

Lowest effective price: Rs 41,000

Flipkart is offering up to Rs 20,000 exchange discount on the phones. It is available at a special price of Rs 60,900 but with exchange of eligible phone, you can buy the Galaxy S8 Plus (64GB) at Rs 41,000. ALSO READ: Flipkart Big Billion Days: Huawei P9 available at Rs 14,999
