May be across stores.. couldn't find link on Optus website.
Minimum total cost of $1536 over 24 months.
Pretty obvious its not outright lmfao.
Pretty obvious 24 month plan is a dumb deal unless its a 5g phone on 5g network.
@ozdesi: Because 5g is totally rolling in hot rn…5g won't be a legitimate thing for years to come mate…and the 5g we get initially (outside of the CBD) will be nowhere near genuine 5g capabilities but a reduced capacity offering no doubt.
These are 24 month plans. Better off going JB which are only 12 month plans.
JB Telstra would be $879 for the first year, and $780 for the next, so $1659 over 24 months. This is $1536 over 24 months. Right?
Telstra is $65/month over 12 months, not 24 months with 60gb data. I just gor Galaxy s10e for $99 with this plan today
But if you want a phone for 24 months? That's the only reason you would look at 24 month plan right? Otherwise cheaper to buy outright on go on prepaid over 2 years.
@onlinepred: This is the stupidest comment I have read in 2019.
@cooldog: How else would you justify 24 month plans?
@onlinepred: They're not network locked are they? Can't you just move onto prepaid or other plans after 12 months?
$879 for the first year, then can move to a $10 to $20 plan for the second year bringing it down to $100 or $200 the second year.
JB deal is lightyears ahead of this one.
Buying outright may prove cheaper than jb, and no contact.
only if you're stupid enough to keep paying $65 a month in the second, contract free year. This is ozbargain!!1! we move to an el cheapo provider
$59 per month on a 24 month plan used to get you flagship phones with Optus. These are mid-tier.
S10e is flagship, still a bad deal as JB has a better deal
It's the budget version of the flagship with a lower resolution and smaller screen, and it's not $59/month but $64.
Same soc, same cameras 2 out of 3 that is. Still high def screen OLED. Fingerprint button over in screen fingerprint. This is better than many other flagships, especially smaller phones. This price is crazy good. I mean is the s10 the budget version of the S10+? Is the pixel the budget version of the pixel XL?
@onlinepred: The S10e is the first time Samsung release an 'S' model with a lower resolution. But my original point was about models available at $59. The S10e is not priced at $59, so the whole point is moot.
What is the JB deal?
Get s10e for $99 and pixel 4 for $199 with Telstra $65/month for 12 months plan, 60gb data
Not a bargain silly 24 month plan
So you hadnt purchased or used a phone prior to a couple years ago? 24month plans are perfectly fine. Do you happen to purchase a phone annually? I know I don't. If I decide I want to break my contract, in only going to pay the phone outright anyway so no harm done.
It's trendy for people on here to dish it out on 24month plans with no genuine context. Like how it's trendy to hate on HN even those once in a while there are pure gems offered.
What matters is if its a genuine bargain or not at this price per month, its not.
Camera and bettery wise how would you rank these?
Pixel 3 or 4
I use GSMArena battery rating as reference usually :)
Partner has the P30 and the camera is good when it works but it's oh so slow with focusing. S10e is great value for the hardware and local support available
The iPhone 7 was $49 like a month ago and now it's gone up wow, hard to believe Telstra has better deals these days lol
Its still $49 @ HN
its even more BS when you consider that Iphone 8 was $59 p/m for optus during chirstmas sale the year Iphone 8 came out.
I know. Was hoping to grab a new one this year but was totally shocked how expensive it is now. Like double the price over 3 f'ing years. No subsidy.
that was the most ridiculously best offer I ever saw in store. There were queues of people waiting to sign up…
Random question, do i know you from LoL?
@Krad3r: Negatory, Xbox
I got my dad iphone 8 during that deal for $59 with a $200 eftpos card and free Otterbox case from the store. A few months later stacked that with an Ipad 2018 for $25 Per month ($10 bundle discount).The contract ended recently for the iPhone and now I'm looking for a new deal for him. Moving away from Optus will increase the cost of the iPad by $10.
The new Optus plans are more expensive than the old ones over 24 months where as the Telstra ones are cheaper. I'm not sure if Optus thought this one through properly.
The new Optus plan are stupidly expensive.
You're basically paying the phone price in full and on top of that has to pay for their expensive 'sim plan'
Beside they used to do the S10e for $59 before they changed all their plan
Anyone had any luck with asking for any discounts off these plans?
I also got the iPhone 8 $59 deal and wanted to upgrade a month ago. Spoke to Optus, told them how expensive their current plan offerings were…got thru to retention team which offered 10% off…still not good enough. I walked, after 20 years with them.
Huawei P30 (128GB) / Samsung A50 (64GB) $59/mth 30GB
Confirmed with HN (Castle Hills)
100% still going until 12th
