This week’s best phone deals: Pick up the Huawei P8 Lite at an even lower price
This week, you can pick up the iPhone 6s or Galaxy S7 for less than $900 and the already low-cost P8 Lite for even cheaper.
Every week, finder rounds up the best mobile bargains of the week. This week, you score $178 off an iPhone 6s and pay peanuts for Huawei's quality mid-range handset, the P8 Lite.
Apple iPhone 6s 16GB $899 (usually $1079)
Apple’s iPhone 6s is still the single most popular smartphone by sales in Australia according to figures released last week (https://www.finder.com.au/samsung-dominates-apple-in-australian-smartphone-sales), but it’s not an inexpensive option if you like your smartphones iOS-flavoured. DWI is shaving a healthy $180 from Apple’s official asking price from the 16GB variant of the iPhone 6s this week.
See what we thought about the iPhone 6s's force touch and live photos when we reviewed it last November.
Samsung Galaxy S7 32GB $819 (usually $1148.95)
If there’s a trend in smartphone colours, it’s gold. Gold phones are very popular, especially in the premium space, and at the moment we’d call Samsung’s Galaxy S7 the best of the premium bunch. Kogan is offering the gold-hued model at a hefty $329.95 discount to the full regular price. It’s not clear from Kogan’s listing if it’s offering up the local Exynos CPU model or the international Snapdragon 820 model at this price, however.
This deal can be purchased from Kogan's website.
We called the S7 a "superbly refined smartphone" when we reviewed it back in March.
Huawei P8 Lite $235 (usually $300)
Bargains don’t have to be exclusively about the big end of town. If your wants, needs and above all budget are more on the modest side, consider Huawei’s P8 Lite, which DWI is offering this week for $235, a $65 saving off its regular asking price.
When we reviewed the Huawei P8 Lite, we praised its pseudo-metal design and clean user interface.
