cheap phones
A low cost iPhone SE, budget LG G6 or inexpensive Galaxy S7 Edge?

Each week, we scour the web to find the best outright prices on the most popular handsets around. If you’re keen on a smartphone, buying outright and pairing up with a prepaid or month to month contract plan can make a lot of financial sense, as long as you get the phone itself for a little upfront as possible.

Apple’s iPhone lines aren’t really what you could ever call "cheap", but it is possible to save money on a handset if you shop around. The Apple iPhone SE switch to a 32GB/128GB has led to a number of lower-cost 64GB handsets hitting the market. Right now, DWI will sell you a Gold 64GB iPhone SE for just $569. That’s $110 cheaper than Apple’s own price on the 32GB model!

We do love the newer Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, but there’s no doubting that they’re somewhat expensive propositions. Last year’s models are still top-notch Android devices, and right now DWI’s deal on the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge can put it into your pocket for just $705. That’s a great price for a great handset.

If you’re after value and a cutting edge handset, then DWI’s deal on the LG G6 has to appeal. It matches up LG’s exceptional LG G6, which is a serious premium 2017 phone, to a price point of just $809, a very solid $390 cheaper than the Australian retail price.
