This week’s phone bargains: Buy direct and save big

Alex Kidman 3 October 2017 NEWS


Score a low-cost Galaxy S8, iPhone SE or HTC U Ultra in the best of this week's phone deals.

Apple iPhone SE (128GB) $585


There's little doubt that many Apple fans are breathlessly awaiting the release of the iPhone X, but that's still a month away. If you need an iOS handset now, and especially if your budget is a little more modest than the iPhone X's wallet-busting price point, then Apple's smaller iPhone SE can be yours at a fraction of the X's asking price. DWI's deal on the 128GB SE delivers it to you for just $585 this week.

Samsung Galaxy S8 (64GB) $789samsung galaxy s8

The Galaxy S8 has been one of our favourite phones of 2017, with processor and battery life performance on par with that of the much larger and more costly Galaxy Note 8. Still, even the Galaxy S8 sits in a premium price band, at least usually. The availability of the Note 8 has pushed S8 prices down in the direct market, and that means your wallet wins, with Samsung's exceptional handset available for just $789 through DWI.

HTC U Ultra (64GB) $479htc-u-ultra

HTC's been in the news lately, with a significant number of its phone engineers switching business cards over to ones that read "Google", but it's reportedly also still staying in the mobile business. The U Ultra was its first flagship for 2017, and if you like large-screened phones but not their price tags, it's hard to overlook the $479 price point that DWI's selling it for this week.
