This week’s cheap phones: S7 Edge prices tumble

Alex Kidman 30 August 2016 NEWS


S7 Edge prices continue to drop and the powerful Z5 Premium is discounted by over $600.

Every week, finder digs up the best deals on mobile phones in Australia. This week Samsung's premium phone with Edge sees yet another price drop, Apple's "cheap" iPhone SE sells even cheaper and the seriously powerful Z5 Premium is selling at a ridiculously low price.


iPhone SE 16GB $549

We know that the iPhone 7 will be announced on 7 September, and while pricing is still up in the air, there’s no way that’s going to be a low-cost device. If you still want a 2016 iPhone but don’t want to make your wallet weep while doing so, consider the compact but powerful iPhone SE, which Kogan is selling at a $130 discount from Apple’s official price.

Samsung S7 Edge $799

The S7 Edge gave us the first glimpse of where Samsung would take the Note 7 series, and it did so in an attractive form that actually outperforms the Note 7. If you don’t need that phone’s S-Pen stylus, consider the S7 Edge instead, especially with Kogan selling the 32GB model for $799, leaving a full $450 in your pocket compared to the regular selling price.

Z5 Premium $589.00

Sony is widely tipped to be announcing a new smartphone range at the IFA conference in Berlin this week. We weren’t hugely taken by the X Series phones, which didn’t do all that much to innovate on top of last year’s Xperia Z series devices. That makes the Z5 Premium the best Sony phone of the moment, and right now DWI is offering it at a price point $610 lower than Sony’s official asking price.
