This week’s cheap phones: $230 off a Jet Black iPhone 7? Now that’s courageous
Pick up Apple's glossy iPhone 7 or pre-order the HTC U Ultra at a discount.
Every week, finder digs up the best deals on smartphones in Australia. This week we've got sweet discounts on the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7 and you can get a discount on the HTC U Ultra before it's released.
iPhone 7 Jet Black 256GB
Though the latest iPhone release was not short on hype, Apple went overboard pushing the Jet Black iPhone 7 as the aesthetically superior option. At launch, the Jet Black iPhone 7 was a little hard to find. Now, four months into its release, not only is the Jet Black iPhone 7 easy to find but you can also find it for a reasonable price.
DWI is currently selling the Jet Black iPhone 7 for $1,149, $230 below what Apple charges.
Samsung Galaxy S7
With last year's best phone likely to be usurped soon, we're going to see the already-great-value S7 continue to drop in price.
Whether it's a sign of the impending S8 or not, the Galaxy S7 is currently selling for $410 less than Samsung offers it for.
See what we thought about the Galaxy S7 when we reviewed it last year.
HTC U Ultra
The HTC U Ultra officially launches in Australia on 8 March at Vodafone if you want to buy it on a contract and at JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman if you want to buy it outright.
This year, HTC's unique selling point for its latest flagship phone is a second display that HTC is calling Big/Little. The idea is that the main screen is used for all of your big-picture interactions (gaming, photography, etc) and the small, top-right screen is used for notifications and utilities. The phone's other selling point is its full-glass body, which comes in Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White and Cosmetic Pink.
It's rare that we see a phone discounted before it becomes officially available, but you can currently secure a HTC U Ultra handset from DWI for $100 less than the typical asking price.
