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.

You can order the iPhone 6 Plus from DWI's website.

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.

Check out the Samsung Galaxy S6 and more EOFYS sales at Kogan. 


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.
