This may not be the best time to get an iPhone 7, especially with the company usually announcing a new model every year in September. But, just as we said with the great deals you can find for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, if you need to upgrade now – there are some pretty tempting offers available.
Given that the iPhone comes in three storage sizes and up to five colour options, it is actually a pretty daunting task to find the best iPhone deals on popular ecommerce sites like Lazada. It gets worse when sellers offer imported units for much lower prices than local sets – these iPhones are not covered by international warranty, so you’re left at the mercy of the sellers themselves.
That said, we’ve done the legwork and trawled through Lazada for the best deals for the iPhone 7 – only to find that the very best prices are actually those sold by Lazada itself.
The most shocking offer we found is actually for the highest-end 256GB model, which Lazada is offering for just RM3,469 – over RM700 less than the RM4,199 RRP. All five colours are available for the same price too, but if you are looking for the Gold or Rose Gold options, you better hurry – there are two units left of each at the time of writing.
If you feel the 256GB storage option is a little too much, the 128GB models are offered for RM3,299 by Lazada (less RM400 from the RM3,699 RRP). But, you could cop the Gold colour option for just RM3,169. Interestingly, even the Product(RED) edition is priced at RM3,299.
Of course, it makes more sense to top up an additional RM160 and double your storage, but a red iPhone is worth that sacrifice for some.
Finally, there’s the base 32GB model. You will eventually run into storage issues here several months down the line, but for RM2,899 (RM300 less than RRP), it could be a more affordable alternative. We’d still recommend the 128GB model at the very least though.
Nevertheless, at these prices, it makes a whole lot more sense to get the iPhone 7 here than on premium resellers or from Apple. We reckon the 256GB models will get snapped up pretty quickly once this post goes up, so if you’ve been thinking of making the jump, it’s a pretty good time to do so.
