Pick up an affordable iPhone, Galaxy S7 or LG G6 in this week's bargain handsets.

Premium handsets typically come with all the trimmings, but the one thing it can be tough to do is trim those premium prices. That's why we search every week for the best smartphone bargains for your buying dollar.

iPhone SE 32GB $469iPhone-SE-64GB_Gold

Apple doesn't like the word "bargain" very much, positioning its entire iPhone line in the premium space for both features and pricing. The iPhone SE is its lowest cost phone, but with starting prices over $600, they're still stiffly priced. DWI's deal this week on the 32GB iPhone SE chops a tasty $210 off the asking price down to a much more palatable $469.

Samsung Galaxy S7 $629s7silver

Samsung's exceptional Galaxy S8 is our favourite phone of the moment, but it's not inexpensive, with few bargains to be found. Where the money saving is present is with last year's model, but that doesn't mean you're putting up with sub-par performance. At $629, a healthy $370 saving off Samsung's official asking price for the Galaxy S7 DWI's deal is a bit of a steal.

LG G6 64GB $595lg-g6-white

Rumours are swirling of an updated LG G6 with the Snapdragon 835 on board, but until that mystery phone surfaces, the G6 is the top of the heap when it comes to LG phones. You can get the 32GB version in Australia, but if you want the 64GB model you're staring at a $1199 phone bill... unless you opt for DWI's deal on the phone, which neatly bisects that price, selling at just $595. That's an incredible $604 saving, or enough to buy yet another LG G6 as well.
