We have tried to pick up all the unlocked phones, so the prices don’t differ drastically based on carriers. You might be able score better deals from your carrier. Moreover, with Christmas coming, we do expect these prices to drop so keep an eye out on a better deal. We also didn’t include Huawei in the mix due to the ongoing trade dispute between Huawei and the US government.
