    everyone seems to be taking 100 off these days..

    • +4

      Samsung Unpacked is in two days, perhaps this might have something to do with the Apple iPhone sales?

    • +4

      100 off is less than 10% which seems to be a standard apple discount. Rare to see higher.

  • +5

    Cheaper on JB pay with 5% giftcard, even better if you have 10% or 15% off TCN giftcard.

    • +1

      If you were referring to the Suncorp 5% off JB Giftcard, you could get 3% off Amazon via the same portal too.

      Plus Cashreward still offer cashback even if you use Amazon store credit (2% cashback on Mobile Phones), the final price for the 128G iPhone 13 will be ~$1185.40

      vs JB HiFi with 5% giftcard and no cashback = $1186.55

      Both you will either have to buy a bit more gift card than what's needed, or a bit less and pay the rest with real credit card/cash… I'd go Amazon as I can buy Grocery from Amazon to spend the remainder.

      • How does one get the 5% gift card with JB Hi-Fi?

        • if you have Suncorp services, or AAMI Car Insurances etc., they all have a "Lucky Club" which you can buy discounted giftcard for a lot of shops. Note the "lucky club" will shut down sometime this year (specific date to be announced). It was a good ride for me.

          • @OMGJL: Suncorp benefits also shutting down sometime this year. I’d assume the same date

            • +1

              @Slo20: Continue shopping until 20 January 2022. After that, Suncorp Benefits can only be used to access existing eGift cards you have already purchased.

              • @rooon: It's been extended, they don't have a date for cut off yet, but their FAQs say they will advise soon. You can still purchase Gift Cards.

      • I thought cash rewards doesn't offer cash back on store credit. I always check which items have cash back before I put the order through then determine whether I use credit card or existing giftcard balance. Have I been doing this wrong….oops

        • AFAIK only Amazon allows this, so you are not wrong most likely.

    • Never heard of tcn before… Is it same is shopback gift cards? Whats the difference between jbhifi directly bought gift card from them or from tcn?

      • +2

        It's the deal everyone goes mad for on ozb, 15% off these The Card Network, or The Ultimate gift cards at Coles. There's a few variations of each, which can be used at a bunch of different retailers (the key ones being JB, and good guys). …Is that what you were asking?

        End of last year I used 20+ of these gift cards, went to JB n bought the iPhone 13 to effectively get 15% off (versus only 5% off with a JB gift card from Shopback). Saved $200 off the rrp for a phone that hardly goes on sale, so it was pretty good. This deal if you tack on SB/CR is not bad either

    • How do you get 5% giftcard?

      • I dont know, i am too asking.

      • Check here.

  • what a disgrace, is this true?
    "You'll need a separate charger - The latest iPhones don't ship with a charger or EarPods in the box. All iPhone 13 accessories can be purchased separately"
    apple have gone mad

    • +35

      A separate charger has been a thing since the iPhone 12 in 2020. Google Pixel 6 and some Samsung phones don't include chargers either.

      • +5

        Still, Apple started it. Another thing is Apple keeps on introducing new ones.

        29W, 30W, 18W, 20W, 61W, 87W, 96W, 140W

        Some of them have multiple revisions. One of them doesn't not quite follow the official specs. So much for better for the environment. Both 18W and 20W no longer use changeable plug design.

        • +9

          I'd much rather have 7 years of software support than a redundant charger in the box. If the charger was so important a feature, the other vendors should not have removed it and cornered some of Apple's market.

          P.S. I have been using wireless charging ever since iPhone's started supporting it

          • @dealsucker: Apple doesn't have an official wireless charging pad for iPhones I think. The frustration is that being an Apple users, the number of USB-C adapters I need to have. Also, if you do have a need to travel overseas, you cheapest option is the 30W charger (if you want fast charge).

            Not all Android phone makers removed the charger. I do get Apple and Samsung did lower the phone prices (at least for some phones), but pretty sure it is only going to be for 2021 phones.

            • +3

              @netsurfer: Apple does have a wireless charger. MagSafe

              • -6

                @chankaran: Calling magsafe "Wireless" is a bit funny when you're just magnetically attaching a wire instead of plugging one in.

            • +2

              @netsurfer: Apple has two official MagSafe wireless chargers for the iPhone.

          • +2

            @dealsucker: Lightning port on iPhones still is laughable, no USB-C is a major deal breaker for me. Stupid Apple, just give us a USB C port iPhone already.

            • +1

              @black-cat43: Not sure I can agree 100%. Sure it would be more convenient, but USB-C's design is far less durable and the connector in the phone can break far more easily than the lightning port.

              Every USB-C device I have had (headphones, Android phones) have become loosey goosey over a couple of years of use, the point where the device would need put just in the right position to charge and I'd wake up with a flat device.

              Apple has engineered lightning ports to be far more durable, as they don't have a male connector point in the port itself.

              The iPhone 5S I have has a lightning port that works without issue. Compare that to my newer Nexus 6P which doesn't charge at all as the port is a loosey goosey mess.

              I've also seen multiple instances where USB-C ports break due cords being tripped on, phones falling off a table while charging. This has happened endless times with my iPhone 12 mini, and previous iPhones with lightning port and they solider on.

              I think durability is a huge consideration and a big reason why Apple bought back the MagSafe option on the new MacBook Pro. They won't implement USB-C on the iPhone… they'll go portless before that happens.

          • +1

            @dealsucker: Is it too much to ask for both in a $1000+ phone?

        • Agree.
          Apple became an abomination after Steve died.

          Apple jumped the shark with iPhone 4.
          Things gone downhill since.
          Apple began to remove accessories that should have been included.
          Then Apple removed the 3.5mm headphone jack and continued to remove more and more.
          I still blame Apple for artificially pushed the price up above 1000 USD without any improvement to the phone, just for more profit.
          The iPhone user experienced has not improved.

          Let me guess, next year iPhone will not have any port. And wireless charging will only work with Apple's wireless charger. Apple regular wireless charger cost $250, fast charger cost $350.

          what's worse? Other phones makers followed Apple's disgusting practices.

      • +5

        Makes sense for Pixel and Samsung to not include it as they use an industry standard USB C plug like my ipad pro, Nintendo switch, laptop, my bike light and battery bank.

        Apple not including a proprietary charger for lightning devices is just stupid. If I move to iPhone I have to buy an iPhone charger separately that will only work with the iPhone.

        This is the only reason I still run an Android phone despite having an ipad pro and macbook is that iphone has a shitty cable and I don't want yet another charging cable in my car, bedside and desk.

        • +9

          Why do you need an iphone specific charger? Do you mean iphone specific cable?

        • +10

          If I move to iPhone I have to buy an iPhone charger separately that will only work with the iPhone.

          No, you use the exact same charger that you used on your android phone or nintendo switch or laptop or whatever, you just need a different cable, which they come with in the box.

        • +2

          Bizarre logic to be honest

      • +2

        Honestly they should give users like a unqiue code to redeem a wall charger in store or online when the phone is purchased.

    • +4

      It was the headlines just a year ago, now every-or should I say many-android phones followed suit, samsung did it, google also did it. Not sure about others but yeah. Nowadays you dont get anything anymore.

    • +8

      Lowering their carbon footprint apparently. Corporate speak for “why give a free charger when you can charge X amount for it”

      • +16

        $29 for the cheapest charger in apple store. Wrapped in additional packaging.

        But apparently it's better for the enviroment ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      • it's a bit the same concept why Coles and Woolies don't give you free shopping bags anymore, but you need to pay for it.

        I think though, the right thing to do would be to give you at least a voucher so when you purchase an iPhone you can have a charger at a discounted price. This way you would not buy it if you already have one, but you would not have to pay much extra is you don't.

        The irony of Apple though is that they are the only company who hasn't switched to USB-C for their phones (they did just for their laptops), which requires different cables and chargers, i.e. more environmental impact. Pretty shameless behaviour for the richest corporation in the world…

    • +7

      They come with the cable, but not the power brick.
      The cable is however usb-c to lightening.

      • +7

        And this makes their 'people have lots of spare chargers at home' argument irrelevant because all previous iphone power bricks are usb A so they cant use it anyways.

        • +4

          Uhh except, y'know, you'd already have a lightning cable. I've only had one iPhone before my current iPhone.

          In the third quarter of last yr Apple shipped 50m alone - they almost halved the size of the iPhone box. Can you even imagine the carbon footprint saved, here?

          • @ThithLord: While you could argue that, but indirectly Apple is also pocketing savings in logistics by being able to ship twice the amount they would. I daresay this savings increased in the last couple of years as shipping costs increased massively due to Covid.

            • @Craze: So if they shipped double the amount, the carbon footprint cost almost half as much. Soooo?

        • +1

          I just bought a 12 Mini. I already had a spare USB C wall plug sitting around from a phone I bought in 2016.

      It's better for the environment, Apple said. Would you believe that bullshit.

          How do you take an issue of corporate greed by one of the most profitable and destructive companies on the planet and find a reason to be mad at a teenage girl lmao

    • I think this is probably better for the environment. Most people buying these phones are upgrading so would already have a charger

    • +11

      Not a valid reason for you to neg the deal, OP didnt choose what pricing iPhones have, Apple does.

      This is a good deal for the iPhone 13 and thats that.

    $1250 for a phone is a bargain… in a new dystopian world

    • every two years

      • +12

        From anecdotal experiences iphones users tend to keep their phones between 3-5 years.

        • Still using an iPhone XS. Will be upgrading to a 14 Pro Max and pass on my old one. 4 years is pretty good.

        • -1

          If only people knew their phones needed a new battery.

      • +7

        An iPhone that is within 2 years old depreciates well. I sold a 2 year old iPhone 11 Pro for $750. It was $1800 new. Call it $1K spent on a phone over 2 years.
        Any other brand $1.5K phone would depreciate very poorly in 2 years time.
        Although I'm a Samsung & Pixel user

      • +7

        Nah it's iOS, they still receive updates beyond 2 yrs, unlike Androids.

  • When will there be a discount on the iPhone 13 Pro!

    • +3

      When the 14 pro comes out

      • Was no real discount on the 12 Pro when the 13 Pro came out..

  • +1

    any deals for the pro

    • Awaiting the deal for pro model as well.

  • I can't decide between iPhone 13 mini and Pixel 6. Any clear winner?

    • +6

      Iphone if you are in apple ecosystem or want a phone that last longer.

    • +3

      Depends on what ecosystem you are already invested in.

      Hardware wise all the latest phones are brilliant.

      The advantages of the iPhone is better support, better apps, better messaging if family and friends have iPhone, better resale value and arguably a better device life expectancy. Also more cases and accessories available for longer. Trying to find a good case for a few years old android is impossible, you can still get good cases for a decade old iPhone 4s same is true for things like batteries and screens. Also the apple watch sadly is better than the android alternatives. Better Bluetooth support my iPad works flawlessly with every Bluetooth device I've ever tried with my Pixel and Samsung note I often have to readd devices.

      Pixel is just cheaper and more open. If you want to hack and tinker with your phone and run different launchers customize stuff pixel is the winner.

      Sadly iPhone still come with lightning cables and are more expensive.

      • +3

        The advantages of the iPhone is better support

        Yes, easily the best support there is.

        better apps

        Not so sure about that, the apps are almost exactly the same.

        better messaging if family and friends have iPhone

        Why? Telegram/Whatsapp/Signal run the same on iphone and android.

        Trying to find a good case for a few years old android is impossible

        Ebay has tons, cases, batteries, not sure what you mean?

        • -1

          Why? Telegram/Whatsapp/Signal run the same on iphone and android.

          lol so which one do I tell my family/friends/colleagues to msg me on? Every time I exchange details, am I to tell them So I use this app for work, this app for chatting w/ fam, and this app for socials?

          Or y'know, just everyone using iMessage with end to end encryption by default, baked in and data isn't harvested.

          Decisions decisions

          • -1

            @ThithLord:

            lol so which one do I tell my family/friends/colleagues to msg me on?

            Telegram, it's easily the best of the 3

            Signal for the privacy
            Whatsapp for people from foreign countries

            • @ikt: Nah I'll stick with the superior, baked in encrypted iMessage. All good.

              • @ThithLord: It's so superior it isn't available on a platform used by 60% of the population and you can't edit a message after you send? Is that right? Amazing.

                • @ikt: Android: so superior you have to use third party apps for basic services like messaging people lol I mean, C'mon dude. You literally suggested three different apps a person would have to choose between.

                  • @ThithLord: What? Have you ever used an Android?

                    Secondly you do realise that when you send someone on another platform a message on imessage it turns into SMS yeah?

                    It doesn't look like it has a desktop app?

                    imessage is obviously the worst messaging app there is I'm not sure why you're struggling with this, if you prefer Internet Explorer because it's the default then sure but don't argue that it's better.

                    • @ikt:

                      What? Have you ever used an Android?

                      Yeah mate I used Android from the first Samsung galaxy S phone range through to 2016, when I got my first iPhone.

                      My point was continuing on from your suggestion to just use Signal or Whatsapp for messaging

                      It doesn't look like it has a desktop app?

                      iMessage does have a desktop client - it's just called Messages. It also, by default, syncs between Mac desktops, iPads, iPhones, Apple Watch etc

                      imessage is obviously the worst messaging app there is I'm not sure why you're struggling with this, if you prefer Internet Explorer because it's the default then sure but don't argue that it's better.

                      Put forth a point to substantiate your ridiculous claim, bruv. iMessage as a standard has already been around for ten years already. You're still telling me that you can choose these three different messaging clients!!1! okay can they speak to eachother?

                      You're the one who can;t quite grasp that having to install a third party app and then advising anyone you want to contact which app you prefer is just not that user friendly.

                      Secondly you do realise that when you send someone on another platform a message on imessage it turns into SMS yeah?

                      Uhh… yeah? What's your point, mate?

                      • @ThithLord:

                        Yeah mate I used Android from the first Samsung galaxy S phone range through to 2016, when I got my first iPhone.

                        Then you would know you don't have to use a third party app.

                        My point was continuing on from your suggestion to just use Signal or Whatsapp for messaging

                        You don't HAVE to use them, they are BETTER.

                        iMessage does have a desktop client - it's just called Messages. It also, by default, syncs between Mac desktops, iPads, iPhones, Apple Watch etc

                        I can't see the Windows Version or the Linux Version? Basically you're like, screw everyone who isn't an Apple user.

                        Uhh… yeah? What's your point, mate?

                        Nothing wrong with SMS or Internet Explorer, if that's your choice go for it. It's just not better, can you even do group chats with SMS? This is like a conversation from 2005.

    • +1

      Heard pixel 6 has many flaws, bugs, random battery drain, app crashes etc mostly because they didn’t fully optimise the os for their new tensor chip

    • I moved to an iPhone after 8 years on Android because notifications are no longer reliable on Android after Google introduced the doze feature. Most notifications especially Gmail are extremely delayed and only popup when the screen is woken up… which defeats the whole purpose of notifications.
      I am not sure how this is not an issue for more people. Maybe not everyone needs real time notifications I guess.

    • +2

      Easy decision for me

      -Does sideloading matter?
      -Are you ok with not having universal back button behaviour?
      - Ok with not being able to customise your phone including where you can place icons?
      - Does USB3 matter? Being able to manage your phone like a USB drive or OTG?
      - Split screen + other unique features

      Had a look at the new notch on the iPhones and it didn't really bother me, so I don't include that as a metric

    Question - I have a brand new iPhone 13 Pro 256gig… un-opened, in that light blue colour.

    a.) what can I get for it in selling it
    b.) where should I sell it? Gumtree?

    • Ebay - gumtree is full of stolen/scammed iPhones and the worst buyers low balling you or ripping you off in a carpark.

      If its still new and un open you could return it to the store?

    • Or just sell it to 2nd hand mobile shop, if you want a safer way out, i.e. webuyback.com.au, they are paying $1270 brand new.

    • FB marketplace

  • I can't decide between iPhone 13 and oppo Find X3. Any advice please.

          Then oppo

        • I got an iPhone 8 a couple years ago after using android until then. Not looking back.

    • Android vs IOS is the first thing I ask people. Have a gander at the iPhone and see if you like the OS

  • +3

    I have installed the same 150+ apps on both Pixel and iPhone 13PM and can’t see the better apps arguments.

  • Have you guys checked Facebook Marketplace lately? People are selling iPhone 13 (unopened box) within the range $900-$1000. I don't know how they are managing to sell sealed iPhone 13s at that price.

    • +2

      Possibly fakes?

    • Are they legit tho? I understand selling it for maybe $100-200 less even though it's brand new.

      • +1

        Likely to be stolen goods or you end up with a empty iPhone box and lose $1000.
