This week’s phone deals: Samsung vs Apple
Score a lower cost iPhone 6s, or a seriously cheap Galaxy S7 in this week’s deals.
Every week, finder picks out the very best smartphone deals available in Australia. This week you can benefit from Apple's recent decision to ditch the 16GB iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S7 is, once again, selling at a steal.
Apple iPhone 6s 16GB $779 ($929 from Apple)
You can’t actually get an iPhone 6s 16GB from Apple any more, because the entry point phone is now the 32GB model (which has seen a slight price drop). If storage isn’t key for you, however, that means that there are some serious bargains to be had on remaining 16GB stock from other providers. DWI is offering up the 16GB iPhone 6s for only $779, a serious cut from Apple’s price for its 32GB equivalent.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge $799 ($1,249 from Samsung)
The Galaxy S7 Edge is one our favourite phones, and the current frontrunner for battery life in a high performance 2016 handset. At $1,249 it’s a somewhat pricey prospect, but the fact that its Mobile World Congress launch was some six months ago plays into the bargain hunter’s hands. Right now DWI is selling the S7 Edge for $799, a far more pleasant price point than Samsung’s official one.
Sony Xperia X Performance $729 ($999 through Sony)
Sony has already announced the Xperia XZ, which means that the Xperia X Performance hasn’t had a terribly long time at the top of Sony’s premium Android family tree. Right now DWI is offering the Xperia X Performance for $729, which is a decent saving compared to the official $999 asking price. Although to be honest, we’d take the S7 Edge if we were buying today.
