This week’s cheap phone deals: The galaxy’s finest deal on S7 Edge
Google and Apple may have the latest handsets on the market, but Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge is hands-down the best value smartphone around.
Every week, finder searches for the very best deals on smartphones in Australia. This week, Apple's latest scores another discount after a previous drop last week, the S7 Edge is cheaper than ever with an eBay coupon and Google's trusty Nexus 6P is available at a steal.
Apple iPhone 7 256GB $1279
If you're an earth-dwelling human with an interest in communication and the interwebs you may have heard of something known as the iPhone. You probably also know that they'll generally cost you an arm and a leg, and they don't get cheaper with age (in fact when the latest released, the old iPhones actually became more expensive). That's the way it is and the way it has nearly always been, but the iPhone 7 is looking to buck that trend.
Just weeks after its release, we saw DWI drop the price on iPhone 7 just as soon as they came into stock and this week it's happened again. The iPhone 7 256GB, which sports an Apple A10 Fusion processor, a 12MP camera and best of all water and dust proofing, is currently retailing for $1279 at DWI. That's a full $100 cheaper than Apple is selling it.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge 32GB $746.70
Do you know what it's like to live life on the Edge? Well now you can, and for a dirt-cheap price. While the Apple iPhone 7 is the latest smartphone on the market, the Galaxy S7 range is without a doubt the best value and for what our bottom dollar is worth, some of the very best phones of 2016.
With its water- and dust-proof design, astonishing battery life and impressive performance, the S7 Edge is (in our reviewer's opinion) Samsung's best effort yet. If there was any one qualm at release, it was that the Edge was just too pricey to justify for some. That's no longer a concern. For a limited time, eBay users can score 20% off tech purchases with the code C20TEC. That brings the $933.38 handset down to just $746.70, which is over $500 cheaper than Samsung's asking price.
Huawei Google Nexus 6P 32GB $589
While the Nexus 6P may not be manufactured in-house at Google, it has been put together by the good folks at Huawei. We praised the 6P's solid benchmark performance, its stylish design and solid battery life when we reviewed in back in November 2015.
You can pick up the Huawei 6P from Kogan for $589. Google have stopped selling the 6P through its website since the Pixel announcement, so they could be gone for good soon.
