This week’s cheap phones: Scoop up an iPhone or score a cheap Android

Alex Kidman 11 April 2017 NEWS


Discounts on Apple’s smallest iPhone or top quality Android handsets from Sony or Samsung are the highlights of this week’s cheap phone deals.

Apple iPhone SE 64GB $559apple-iphone-se-white

Apple recent refresh of the iPhone SE family had us thinking that there would shortly be rush to sell off the no-longer-manufactured 16GB and 64GB models. 16GB is still a measly amount of storage, but 64GB is fine, and DWI is this week offering up the White Silver iPhone SE 64GB for just $559, substantially cheaper than the "new" 32GB model that otherwise has the exact same innards.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge $709

As we edge closer to the official release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, we’re seeing a steady stream of discounts on last year’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. If you want the best battery life of last year’s premium phones, it’s hard to overlook the S7 Edge, but it’s equally hard to justify its official $1149 asking price against the price of an S8 or S8+ handset. DWI to the rescue, then, with a hefty $440 saving off that price, dropping it to just $709 for the dual SIM model.

The Xperia XZ has been somewhat overshadowed by Sony’s upcoming Xperia XZ Premium, but as yet we don’t have pricing or precise Australian availability for Sony’s latest premium handset. Its previous flagship has some serious style credibility, as well as a great camera, water resistance and good battery life. DWI’s deal on the Xperia XZ chops $250 off the standard asking price, a tasty little saving.
