Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G 128GB $0 / $299 Upfront on Telstra $99/$69 P/M 12M Contract (New / Port-In Customers) @ JB Hi-Fi

1750

No free buds but now 5G model instead.

Sure you can still do telstra ETC of $594 on $99 plan

I think $414 ETC on $69 plan but pay $299 upfront so no point going $69 plan if you going to ETC.

However cancelling plans and pay ETC fee might show up on your credit history.

EDIT
Another JB offer to stack on top with 20% off buds live or watch (can get Active2 watch down from $499 to $279)

  • Is it exynos or sbapdrsgon processor?

    • 5g model is Snapdragon

    • I think all 5G version is the Snap

    • 5g is Snapdragon

    • After seeing how good the next generation upper midrange Exynos perform, I think I'll just wait the few months for next generation. These new 5nm chips seem to be offering a massive jump in performance.

      • how about battery? i prefer processor with 25% longer battery with 5% slower performance

        • The newer process leads to a more powerful SoC with more efficiency. If Samsung upper midtier is better than Qualcomm current best chip, just consider how much better Qualcomm offerings and Samsung next flagship chip is gonna be over current ones. Always better buying a new flagships at the beginning of the release cycle, especially when there’s been huge gains. Probably won’t see major new gains for another couple of years when they move onto a newer better process.

  • Snapdragon in 5g

    And 594 for this is very noice!😎

  • fukhel dropping like a rock in days

  • Is it Snapdragon 865?

    This deal should prove pretty popular if you can obtain the S20 FE 5G for $594.

    • Feels like the last few generations have had very small incremental improvements…. Easily resisted, for now!

      • I feel if the upvotes on the deal gets over 200 it will become harder haha

        865 Snapdragon and 595 is a good deal for a Samsung

  • Anyone know how quickly I can get off and back on to telstra to be eligible? I heard 2 months but others have said days.?

  • However cancelling plans and pay ETC fee might show up on your credit history.

    is this Telstra's credit history?

    • Want to know this as well. I can’t imagine it would affect the credit score. I paid the money to exit the contract. Correct me if I’m wrong

      • Credit check is performed at the point of applying for the plan and it appears as a line item on your credit report.

        The line item stays there irrespective of cancelling or carrying on seeing it through the full term of the plan.

        TL;DR: It makes your credit report look busy and impacts your credit score

          To add to this, most buy now pay laters do a credit check as well. So if you have been getting your Zip/Latitude etc 'free' monies you will have a similar entry on your credit report.

          When applying for big boy stuff, like loans and mortgages they might query it.

        • Thanks, on a side note I really don't understand why a busy but always paid on time credit report would be ranked lower than one with very little activities.

          • @zgjshadgh: Hard to define what "busy" is. Last time I spoke with an advisor he said more than 2-3 enquiries in a six months period is not good. Credit score also depends on the type of credit you apply for. A credit card enquiry is not the same as a mobile phone plan.
            I personally don't think a random mobile phone plan is going to affect much unless you're doing it regularly.

    • I have a flawless credit history. How long would something like this stay in my credit history if I cancelled the plan?

    • +10 votes

      The way it's worded is so, so wrong! If you cancel the contract and pay ETC you have complied with the contract. It's not a non-conformance and would not show up on your credit history as a red mark. The ONLY item on your credit report would be an inquiry from Telstra if you don't already have a Telstra account.

  • Want to upgrade from my s10 5g , but I don't want to lose headphone jack, but I want higher refresh rate and snapdragon . Hard decisions.

  • Dayum thats a great price.. got a 5g on pre order with an upgrade from an S8, …cannot fault the thing ..brilliant phone

  • do this for a pixel!

  • Whats the best way to get this deal living in Victoria, do we just call them up?

  • The previous deal with the included earbuds was marginally better (even with the upfront handset cost of $149), because at least you could easily sell them for at least $200…

    But this is a great deal too and you don't have to go through the hassle of selling the buds so all in all its much of a muchness

    +1 from me

    • Exactly right, only ~$45 more through this deal, depending on what the Buds are sold for. Honestly can't believe how good these are for a two-week-old Snapdragon 865 phone, I guess they're pushing it hard against the iPhone 12? I wonder when Telstra will really start questioning all of the early termination requests coming through. They can't change the plan terms after purchase can they?

      • Can we change from 99 a month to some other cheaper plan for free from Telstra after buying the phone at 99 a month rate from jb hifi?

        • I did this after purchasing a Pixel 4 last October. I paid $199 for the phone along with a 12mth $65 plan. The next month I dropped down to the $45mth plan. No questions asked.

        • Yes, by registering for a Telstra account online. However sometimes you get charged a fee when changing, just check.

  • Victorians can't get it :(

  • S20 FE with 256Gb has 8GB RAM. This is a much better phone as 6Gb might not be enough for future OS upgrades. Even Google Pixel 5 now comes with 8Gb RAM!

    • It sounds like you're living in the past. Contemporize, man!

    • Currently Android OS only uses around 1GB RAM. I have Pixel 4 with 6GB RAM that's guaranteed to get Android 12. It'll be fine.

    • Pixel is terrible at RAM management. You have better battery life with 6GB, and JB hasn't discounted the 256GB version! It now costs $250 more, and no plan offered with it.

  • any other phone/plan deals?

  • are there any s20 australia version that's dual sim without the e-sim?

  • Samsung got it all wrong. No wall adapter, low refresh rate and a magnet is what people have been wanting. Not a reasonably priced flagship spec phone.

  • How to get this deal for $594 thanks

    • Go in store, sign up a new plan or port a number across. Take it home and cancel the plan via Telstra chat. Next bill will be $594 potentially plus a pro rata charge for the month's access…at least that's my understanding.
