Phablets as a category were defined by Samsung and its Note series. We’re just starting to see the first really credible rumours around the next generation of the Note, so it’s not surprising that the current model is seeing some bargain offerings right now. DWI is offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for $669 outright, a very tasty $279.99 off the official asking price.

If you want an iPhone bargain, you’re usually looking at the entry-level storage models. That’s certainly true this week, with DWI selling the iPhone 6s 16GB for $190 cheaper than Apple’s Australian price at $889 outright. If you match that phone up to a plan with a solid amount of data and live your life on cloud-based services, it’s got some serious potential.

It’s not too common to see outright specials on very new Android phones, but that’s what we've git with Sony’s entry level Xperia XA smartphone. It’s not quite as flash as the Xperia X or Xperia X Performance, but equally it’s not quite as expensive at $499 outright. But why pay even $499 when DWI is offering it for $389 outright? To further sweeten the deal, the DWI imported model is the Dual SIM variant, where the official Australian model is single SIM only.
