Want an iPhone with a larger display? You’d typically have to spend up big to get a big phone, but not if you opt for the older iPhone 6 Plus model, which DWI is offering at a tasty $190 discount from Apple’s asking price. The 6 Plus is solidly in line for the , so it’s still a very decent iOS option.

The Galaxy S7 is an exceptional phone, but it built on a great base from the Galaxy S6, which still offers compatibility with everything from Samsung Pay to the new Gear 360 camera. Kogan’s selling the 32GB model for a very appealing $579, a $320 saving off the offical price.

Xperia Z5 Compact

If you’re not part of the large crowd of Australian smartphone buyers who opt for Apple or Samsung, that same $579 can score you Sony’s rather nice Xperia Z5 Compact, which gains you waterproofing, a very decent camera and expandable memory over the Galaxy S6. Like the S6, there’s a newer Sony model in town in the form of the Xperia X series phones, but the Z series still stands up well, and at this price is something of a steal.

Pick up an Xperia Z5 Compact before the sale ends.
