Alex Kidman 15 November 2016 NEWS

A little something for everyone, with discounts for both high-end and budget phone buyers.

Here are the week's best smartphone deals in Australia.

It took a while for iPhone 7 bargains to appear, presumably because the direct importers had to wait in the same kinds of queues as regular consumers, as well as source them from markets where they’re already a little cheaper than the Australian standard pricing. As such bargains have been thin on the ground, but Kogan has the iPhone 7 32GB on sale for $929, a nice $150 saving off Apple’s official price.

There’s a reason we’re holding to the Galaxy S7 as being the best phone of the year, despite it being released all the way back in March. In smartphone terms that’s an aeon, but the fact that you’ve been able to buy what is still an exceptional phone at repeatedly discount prices makes it such an easy recommendation. DWI is selling the dual SIM variant of the S7 for $679, seriously below the "official" price of $1,148.99.

Motorola doesn’t play as much in the premium space as other providers, although its recent Moto Z and Moto Z Play phones were nice little units. On the more budget side sits the Moto G4 Plus, which typically sells for $449. DWI has it with a $100 price cut at $349 right now, making it a much more compelling proposition.
