This week Apple fans can pick up the iPhone SE a little cheaper and those not after the latest Samsung can get a real steal on the S6.

Best cheap iPhone: iPhone SE $659AppleiPhoneSE_1

The iPhone SE is, technically speaking, the newest iPhone (if you ignore that it’s essentially an iPhone 6s in the body of an iPhone 5), and Apple products typically don’t see huge discounts. DWI’s asking price for the iPhone SE is only $20 cheaper than Apple’s outright asking price, but that’s actually cheaper than some other direct importers -- and that $20 could be used to buy a case to keep your new iPhone SE safe. Or a couple of pizzas. The choice is yours.

Find out what we thought about Apple's budget handset.

Often the best way to score a discount is to go for a slightly older phone. The Samsung Galaxy S6 still holds its ground beautifully against the existing smartphone pack, but Samsung’s RRP for the phone suggests you should pay $899 for the privilege. DWI’s deal is much nicer, offering the same phone for only $575 instead.

If you like your phones large, you typically have to lay out large sums of money for them. The Mate 7’s has just been supplanted by the Mate 8, but it’s still a very fine phone that you can have for a fraction of the Mate 8’s asking price. DWI is asking for $469 for the Mate 7, a significant saving even off its own suggested pricing of $699.

Take a look at DWI's deal on the Huawei Mate 7.
