Alex Kidman 11 October 2016 NEWS


This week’s bargains concentrate on the mid-range price space, with serious savings to be had.

The iPhone 7 continues to get all the headlines, but the 7 and especially the 7 Plus are huge in the hand. If you favour a more petite iOS solution the iPhone SE is your best bet. DWI is offering the 16GB variant of the iPhone SE for a very nice $539, a $140 saving off Apple’s official Australian price.

The sorry saga of the Note 7 means that it’s a phone nobody should use, but that’s just not true of the Samsung Galaxy S7, currently our favourite phone of 2016. With that favour comes a usually high price point, but right now DWI’s cutting an immense $459.99 from the asking price -- practically the cost of another mid-range phone by itself -- making the S7 a particular bargain delight.

The Xperia XA is the "affordable" member of the Xperia family, which is due to expand with the new Xperia XZ by 20 October. Good Guys is holding an eBay sale offering 20% off goods purchased through eBay, and if you apply that to the Xperia XA, you can score one for only $319.20. Simply put, we can’t think of a better phone at that price point.

Grab a coupon code and head over to eBay for a deal on the XA.
