The iPhone X deal for $200 more was a much better deal than this personally. Hopefully they'll bring that one back.
Unable to find…
The thing is that the 8 and 8 Plus is more like a 7S and 7S Plus. Which in turn is an incremental upgrade on the 7.
With Apple supporting older devices for new versions and with the design looking almost the same as the 7, it begs the question as to why?
Yes I'll probably get negged, but hopefully I'll also get an answer.
CPU is much better in 8
for a long time most phones are just “incremental upgrades” be it apple or android from a hardware perspective.
more noticeable are software upgrades, so if you have the later apple platform you will expect to get longer support due to better processor or cameras which can support more or newer features.
same with ipads …. some of ours no longer get ios updates only due to processor.
with android you just know that after 2 years you might need a new phone to tap into new verisions of android …. my LG was to be on android 8 in Feb, this week they reckon now it will be Aug …..
Why buy any newer model? Phones are incremental upgrades every year. Samsung, Apple, Google, all the same thing.
8/8 Plus support wireless charging.
There's no real reason to upgrade from the 7, but if you're coming from a 6 and looking to upgrade with the intention of owning it for at least 3 years, you're probably better off with the newer one.
Iphone 8 has wireless charging capability..Whoohoo!
If u currently use 7, there’s not much point to upgrade to 8. But if ur still on 5 or 6, and want to upgrade, better go to 8 so it’d last longer, rather than 7.
I’d love to get the X but I can’t deal with the face unlock BS. I want an inscreen fingerprint reader and not at the back of the phone. Then they will get my moolah.
Wait and see what happens with the i XI or XS
Apple has a habit or introducing new tech and addressing the issues in the follow up device.
Wow so much more expensive than the Google pixels deal
Which Google pixel's deal?
The ones for Pixel 2 XL 64gb free on $59 a month, then call up and ask for $10 off. They were going for quite a while, not sure if they are still on. Either way, even if you didn't call for a discount, they are hundreds of dollars cheaper.
Link appears to be broken. Can someone please update?
Added the picture, as the picture in the link doesn't want to show up. :)
Thanks - have to make a trip to JB but the weather in Melbourne is absolutely atrocious at the moment :-(
Works out little better then buying outright depending which sim only plan you go on
$950 outright (On sale) + $480(12m x $40 sim)= $1420
$799(Telstra) + $588 (12m x $49 sim) = $1387
Where do you get a 8 Plus for $950?
Good question.. didn’t realise it was 8+ makes the deal even better
What $40 plan are you talking about?
Just got backup from JB with a new Iphone 8 plus.
Weird thing is that they are selling the phone for $1229, but they give you a free gift card for $430 which means you end up paying $799. Receipt(tax invoice) shows the phone cost as $1229 and a GST of $111.73 which means I should be able to claim back $111.73 via TRS as I'm traveling overseas soon.
So Iphone 8 plus ends up coasting me about $687.
So you paid $1229 outright
No as he says the receipt says he paid $1229 but accounting tricks means he only paid $799 as per the offer.
Oh I see, the gift card is redeemed as part of the transaction.
When was this deal?
Today only…now expired.
