    Cue people in 12 months wanting to break a 36 month contract….

    •  

      I'm not averse to a 36 month contract. Phones like the Google Pixel & iPhones are updated and good to go for 3 years. iPhones in particular, my work phone, an iPhone 7 runs better than it ever did. My personal phone is a Pixel 3XL which I intend to hold on to until Google stop providing updates for it.

      The problem with a 3 year contract for a Samsung phone is that you're going to spend half that time with an out of date phone in terms of software & security. Samsung are dreadfully slow with updates and it seems they just give up almost entirely come the next headset refresh. It's just not worth it.

      •  

        They seemed to have improved with Android 10. Believe the Note 8 may be getting it too. Though still got a long way to match Apple and Google as you said.

      •  

        Well, I have stopped installing updates for good. My pixel 3a never saw an update and believe me its free from issues. People use old android phones like lg g6 or xperia 3 which hardly received any significant update and the phones are still running great. you do not need an update every month. update is a marketing tactic.

    FWIW I get the negativity surrounding 3 year contracts etc, but it may help some people.
    Last year my partner and I were due new phones and really wanted s10+ on release, but could not afford $100 plus phone plans on our budget, or to buy phones outright. So we both got s10+ on 36 month contract $54/month and we couldnt be happier. Yes I'd like to have option to upgrade sooner, but we look after our phones and hopefully they will last the distance, like my past Samsung phones all have.

      The problem is if you can't afford said products, these sort of offers can get people further into debt too. It's not a good practice, and I'd put it on par with loan sharks.

      Some people need to learn to live within their means. Midrange phones are hardly a compromise anyway.

      If you are tight with money, you should be looking at prepaid deals and buying phones outright. Payment plans are your worst enemy long term if you are tight with money. You should really stay away from loans/payment plans etc.

        You are just repeating what was said above.
        Anyway all I was trying to do was put forward a real life situation of my experience in the real world, trying to help someone out there, not looking to get lectured about money or asking for financial advice, but thanks anyway.

          Ah, you said "could not afford", what you meant is that you didn't want to spend more than xxx.

          Yea I went on a 3 year contract a while back, they really suck long term. If you don't mind not having the latest phones, and are okay with the risk of breaking your phone within the contract then $54 a month is good value. What plan was it on?

          • +1 vote

            @onlinepred: Yes I guess, couldn't afford/didn't want to spend/couldn't justify.
            Im on 3gb plan, I know small, but they give you 15gb to start with on top, plus 20gb holiday bonus every 3 months, so i think works out to around 10gb/month. Have wifi at work and at home, so hardly use data, so have 85+gb in the bank.

              @nepalesesquirrel: Yes wow. That's less data than I thought! Similar to what I was on, then work said no more WiFi and I was screwed. Man kudos to not using any data!

              •  

                @onlinepred: Lol
                Well when I'm at work, I actually (sorta)work, and at home I have unlimited NBN.

                •  

                  @nepalesesquirrel: I have NBN also, currently there is no internet coming out of the NBN though, so using my mobile data for all streaming ;-)

                  What do you even need such an expensive phone for if you never use it while you are out haha.

                  Why you looking at pre orders for S20 when you won't be up for an upgrade for another 2+ years?

      Personally, I wouldn't get a phone with a sealed battery on a 36 month contract, unless you are happy to pay to have the battery replaced. My S8 battery is shot, and the USB-C connector is flaky. Not from misuse, but use…

  •  

    I am not povvo, just didn't want to spend that much per month on a phone plan times 2, never have, usually spend between $50-60. Was a good deal anyway considering cashreward cashback and 'free' galaxy buds.
    I have had the S2, S4, S6, and all lasted length of plan. Held onto S6 until S10 came out, 3 years, so as long as the S10 lasts 3 years I'll be happy.

    Jeez. Just buy the phone outright and get a $150 boost 12month plan.
    Save $600-1000 dollars and own the phone to do as you like with it.
    If you don't have the money but you desperately want it, borrow money from friends or family and pay them off in 3-5 months (if you still cant afford to pay it off by then, you really really should not be spending this kinda money on phones.

    • +2 votes

      $1500 + $450 boost plan as you suggest for 3 yrs = $1950.
      Or 36month plan.
      $54×36 = $1944.

      Virtually the same price, not quite the $600-$1000 savings you suggest.

    Wow that escalated quickly.

    What are the inclusions of the 36 month contract you are referring to OP? Please include its details in the description.

    Each to their own I guess. This does look like the cheapest way to get the new S20 series on the plan at the moment.

  •  

    not bad of a deal actually. ultra outright is around 1600 from edu store. here it's around $2000 so $400 for 3 years minus any cash back.

    Total Minimum Cost
    The total minimum cost includes 36x handset repayments plus one month plan fee.

    E.g. $30 plan for S20 Ultra 5G 128GB, you get 20GB/month

    Costing $80.05/month ($30 plan + $57 handset- $6.95 discount)
    Total Minimum Cost is displayed as $2082
    But 36 Months factoring in the cost of the plan as well ends up being $80.05x36 = $2881.80

    RRP of S20 Ultra is $1999 or currently $1599.20 through EPP/Education Portal

    If you have the funds to buy it outright, definitely do so and find a decent pre-paid plan. Don't be tricked by the total minimum cost quoted by Woolworths, go by the cost per month.

    •  

      Not sure why you conveniently left out the $6.95 discount over 36 months, when added up equals $250 which is the savings displayed on the image of the handset.

      This deal is not too bad when you compare it to other carrier deals at them moment.

      •  

        Looks like I'm wrong on the math here. Why did they use the phone price as the total minimum cost???

        •  

          Maybe you can cancel after 1 month? And just pay off the phone repayments?
          So by cancelling your contract they probably force you to pay off the phone portion, producing the total minimum cost.

          Who knows

        • +1 vote

          Because carriers don't charge you for the monthly plan if you cancel a contract, you pay out for the remainder of difference of the handset.
