This week’s cheap phone deals: Score a low-cost iPhone SE

Alex Kidman 23 August 2016 NEWS


It’s not often that you can say "cheap" and "iPhone" in the same sentence.

This week, the iPhone SE gets an uncharacteristic price drop and Galaxy S7 prices continue to drop.

The iPhone SE is Apple’s lower-cost, smaller iPhone 6s variant, but inexpensive it is not. Right now DWI is selling the 64GB version at a $110 discount to Apple’s official price. Bearing in mind that you can’t easily upgrade the storage on an iPhone, we reckon that 64GB is the way to go.

Samsung Galaxy S7 $729

Mind you, when it comes to great phones to buy, it’s still hard to overlook Samsung’s exceptional Samsung Galaxy S7. DWI’s deal on Samsung’s premium-priced Android handset shaves a very healthy $419.95 off the local retail pricing, making it an easy recommendation if you’re an Android fan.

We loved the Galaxy S7 when we reviewed it back in March.


Sony Xperia X $619

Android phones typically wait a few months before the bargains start rolling in, but really, why wait? DWI’s shifting out the Sony Xperia X, the mid-range model in the X series at a $280 discount to the local price suggested by Sony. It’s not quite as exciting as the Galaxy S7 or iPhone SE, but it’s also a bit cheaper than either option.
