Apple's 7th iteration of the iconic iPhone brings with it (long requested) water resistance, a fast and steady camera and a very powerful processor.

Despite the furore around Apple's presentation and the controversial decision to the headphone jack, the iPhone 7 still showcases Apple's signature craftsmanship and quality. Super Mario Run is also exclusive to Apple for a limited time, which in one person's opinion, is more than enough reason to opt for the iPhone.

DWI is currently selling the Apple iPhone 7 256GB for $1,229, $150 cheaper than what Apple charges.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been perpetually discounted this holiday season and the first week of the new year is no exception.

Samsung still sells the Galaxy S7 for $1,148.99 but you can pick it up at DWI for the low price of $719. That's a discount of $429.99.

If you're anything like me, your smartphone is magnetised to hard floor surfaces. For people like us, there is usually two options: fork out for an expensive screen replacement or bite the bullet and purchase an all-new handset. But Moto X Force owners don't know this pain because it's damn-near indestructible.

Taking a hammer to the X Force's five layers of glass or ballistic nylon rear will sooner scramble the internals before anything on the outside is dented or scratched. Its tough exterior isn't all it has going for it either. The X Force also boasts and impressive 21MP camera with 4K recording. Not too shabby for $449. If you want to know more about the Moto X Force, take a gander out our complete review.

Motorola's usual asking price for the Moto X Force is $599 but DWI is currently selling it for just $449.
