The best Australian Amazon Kindle deals in April 2017

Uncategorized March 31, 2017

This is TechRadar’s dedicated page for Amazon Kindle deals. Here you’ll find the cheapest Kindle deals for all of Amazon’s e-readers. We crosscheck every model of Kindle with every retailer every day to pull in the best deals so that this page is always up to date with the cheapest prices.

You’ll find the latest prices from a wide range of retailers for the latest Kindle e-readers. We’ve found the best prices on the basic yet impressive regular Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite and you’ll also find the best deals on the more luxurious models of the Kindle Voyage and Kindle Oasis.

What makes a good Kindle deal?

If this is your first Kindle, you’ll want to know how to tell a good Kindle deal when you see one. Luckily, there are so many good ones out there it’s pretty easy!

The early Kindle e-readers don’t have LCD screens or powerful internal components which means they’re usually a lot cheaper than tablets and phones. The lack of a glass screen is fantastic for glare-free reading though and an immediate improvement over using the Kindle app on your phone or tablet.

The Kindle Voyage normally has a price of about US$220/£170/AU$299, so if you can get it for cheaper than that, you’re onto a winner. After that, there isn’t a huge difference in features, so it all depends how much you want to spend. If you can find the Kindle Paperwhite for under $120/£110/AU$169, you’re getting a good price. With the new Kindle Oasis model arriving recently, we may see the older models’ prices drop soon.

Here are the best Kindle deals currently available…

Kindle Oasis deals

The luxury e-reader you’ve been waiting for?

The new Kindle Oasis is out now and costs $290/£270/AU$449 for the basic Wi-Fi version. There’s no avoiding the obvious, that’s a lot of money for an e-reader. However, dedicated e-reader fans will appreciate the extra lightness and improved screen lighting. The considerably cheaper Voyage and Paperwhite models are excellent alternatives though. Have a look at our Kindle Oasis verdict for more information on why this is the future of Amazon’s Kindle range.

kindle paperwhite deals

Kindle Paperwhite deals

The best standard Kindle ever is a value-for-money winner

The 6th generation Kindle Paperwhite is the best standard Kindle yet, it’s the most cost effective e-reader on the market and it easily beats the Kobo Aura on performance and design. Unlike the cheaper model, this one comes with screen lighting. Amazon has managed to create a fast e-ink tablet with inventive reading apps. You can lookup words in the dictionary without leaving your page, or even flick through any relevant Wikipedia entries for most words or terms. As far as value for money goes, this is the one to beat.

Amazon Kindle (2016) deals

The new 2016 Kindle, also known as the ‘Kindle Touch’, is the updated version of the entry level Kindle last released in 2014. If you want the cheapest option, this is the one you should go for as the 2014 version has been discontinued and any deals you see are probably for preowned or refurbished units. With prices starting around £60/US$80/AU$109, you’re getting a bargain. The 2016 model is also available in white (the 2014 was black only), it’s lighter, thinner, has double the RAM speed and double the storage capacity at 4GB. The lack of a lit screen is the only thing holding it back really.

Kindle Voyage deals

A worthy runner up to the Oasis

The Voyage used to be the most expensive Kindle around before the Oasis arrived, but at least we’re seeing the price drop now. Amazon’s Voyage is one of the best ebook readers available. It’s more compact than other Kindles and the screen is sharper than the cheaper models. A flush display makes the device easier to keep clean and carry around, the screen’s resolution is the highest it has ever been, and it even comes with an ace origami-style case (at additional cost).

We check our Kindle deals every day to make sure they’re always up to date and available!

The new iPad Pro 9.7 arrives instead of an iPad Air 3

If you want the very best standard iPad, this is it – the new iPad Pro 9.7. It arrived in March 2016 instead of an iPad Air 3 and packs many of the outstanding features of the iPad Pro 12.9-inch model. That’s great news for anyone who wanted pro features in a smaller design.

iPad Pro deals

iPad Pro 12.9-inch deals

The biggest and best iPad ever

The iPad Pro isn’t a laptop replacement in the way power users will hope. But it is, by some distance, one of the most brilliant tablets ever released. Using its enormous 12.9-inch screen is simply gorgeous and the power inside is unrivalled in the tablet world. So to anyone that wants an iPad with more power, a better media and reading experience and more abilities than ever before, there’s no question here. Go for the iPad Pro and you’ll love it.

iPad Air 2 deals

Simply the best ‘normal’ iPad available – and the best tablet, full stop

Apple improved on perfection with the iPad Air 2. And now that the iPad Pro 9.7 has hit the shelves, this brilliant tablet is available at an all time low price. The combination of power, better screen, improved design and upgraded OS make this a very, very compelling device – and that’s before getting into the fact the app ecosystem is so much stronger than on Android. It’s even better now iOS 9 is capable of scaling apps so seamlessly – the days of low-res iPhone apps are gone.

It’s a year older but this iPad is still a fantastic tablet

It’s a joy to hold the iPad Air, even though it’s now the thicker option compare to the iPad above. From the clever construction to the fast processor to the improved user interface, this iPad may be a bit older but it’s still excellent. Choose a cheap iPad Air deal from these options we’ve found:

iPad mini 4

iPad mini 4 deals

The best 7-inch tablet ever made

One of the major changes with the iPad mini 4 over last year’s mini 3 is its design. It may look the same, but it’s been slimmed down from 7.5mm to a wafer thin 6.1mm. It’s also now more powerful, has a stunning screen and the battery is still a ten-hour beast. The A8 processor is a good step up from the A7 inside the mini 3 so if you’re going to play 3D games or throw around some of the more hefty iPad apps from the App Store, this is certainly your best option.

iPad mini 3 deals

The best iPad mini currently available

If you want an iPad mini, this is another great option because it’s almost as good as the iPad mini 4 above, but there are some great iPad deals on this to be had, too. The 7.9-inch screen is the perfect size in our opinion – you can hold it in one hand but it’s still big enough to be satisfying when you watch videos or browse the web.

ipad mini 2 deals

The first iPad mini with Retina display is a deal-tastic marvel

If you’re looking for the best iPad deal you might well find it on this iPad right here. Deals on this iPad fluctuate regularly – you can often find it for cheaper than the iPad mini 3 but sometimes it’s more expensive, depending on retailers and stock levels. If the iPad mini 3 above is cheaper, definitely get that one over this!

The best Australian Chromecast deals in April 2017

Uncategorized March 31, 2017

The Google Chromecast is not only one of the most useful and innovative gadgets of the last few years, it’s also dazzlingly cheap. And if you’re looking to pick one up for the cheapest possible price, you’ve come to the right place!

Chromecast is a Wi-Fi HDMI dongle that you plug directly into your TV. From there you can use your smartphone or tablet to ‘throw’ video at your TV over Wi-Fi – whether it be Netflix movies, live football matches from the major broadcasters or simply just a funny YouTube video. On this page we’ll find you the best prices for the Chromecast Ultra, Chromecast 2 (or just Chromecast now) and Chromecast Audio and explain how they differ.

What is a good Chromecast deal?

This one’s easy. The standard price for a Chromecast 2 is $54. You should never, ever pay more than that because you can always find one for that price.

cheap chromecast deals

Chromecast 2 deals

The Chromecast 2, or ‘new Chromecast’ as it’s also known, is very similar to the now discontinued 2013 Chromecast. Sure, it looks a little different. And it’s got slightly faster network performance and a few other tweaks such as coming with a dangly cable instead of as a rigid stick. But essentially the same product in a different shape.

cheap chromecast audio deals

Chromecast Audio deals

While it doesn’t offer true multi-room streaming at the moment (fingers crossed that comes soon), this easy-to-use and affordable device modernises any trusty set of wired speakers you already own with wireless capabilities. In doing so, it also opens them up to features that will grow and get even better over time. Got an old set of speakers or an ancient iPod dock? Turn it into a wireless speaker with Chromecast Audio!

cheap chromecast ultra deals

Chromecast Ultra deals

The 4K Chromecast Ultra is the newest member of the Chromecast family. If you have a 4K TV or are planning on getting one, it’s certainly worth picking one of these up. The Chromecast Ultra is a cheaper alternative to Amazon’s Fire TV or the US-only Roku 4 for getting 4K content on your TV. Chromecast Ultra deals are usually around $88, so anything cheaper is an added bonus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date, news and rumors

Uncategorized March 31, 2017

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the biggest comeback story in phones following all of the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 battery failures last autumn.

It’s fascinating: The Note 7 will go down in smartphone history for all the wrong reasons, yet when it wasn’t causing property damage or injuries, it was among the best phones you could buy. 

Where does Samsung go from here? We now have a better idea of the Galaxy Note 8 features thanks to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus launch. They look and feel like Note phones without that all-important S Pen.

Samsung will build on top of its new all-screen technology, and the Note series will continue to be Samsung’s high-end, at times experiment smartphone.

Ready for the future? It’s time to dive into all of the promising Note 8 rumors, as new leaks begin to emerge ahead of a possible August release date.

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? Samsung’s next flagship phablet
  • When is it out? Autumn of 2017 is very likely
  • What will it cost? A lot, the Note 7 cost $850/£749/AU$1,349

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date

Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 release date will happen in 2017. That’s a fact.

And while the company didn’t go into more detail about the launch date, we expect to see this S Pen compatible Android phone in the autumn.

The Note 7 launched in September, the Note 5 arrived in August, and the Note 4 landed in October. Expect the Note 8 to by October or November at the latest.

Could it come earlier? Sure. Samsung may want to fill the void of the Note – the UK hasn’t had a Note phone permanently available since the Note 4. Ouch.

But Samsung may also wants to take its time for the sake of battery safety. Plus, the S8 and S8 Plus launched later than normal. October would put the Note 8 six months from the S8 launch date.

Here’s what we’re going to look out for over the next several months: The phone with the model number SM-N950, as revealed by leaker Evan Blass.

We’re also digging up information on Baikal, the supposed codename for the Note 8 that refers to a Siberian lake – the lake deepest in the world.

TechRadar’s take: Note 8 may launch in late September, with a late October release date. That’s six months after the S8 and S8 Plus. It would give Samsung more time to run extra safety tests. There’s a chance that the company will want it out sooner to fill the void of new Note phones on sale, but  we’re unlikely to see anything sooner than autumn.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 screen

Hottest leaks:

  • A 4K resolution
  • No home button
  • A pressure-sensitive display

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may once again make the Note series known for its groundbreaking screen, but not just because of its size this time around.

We’re predicting that the Note 8 will be one of the first smartphones with a pixel-dense 4K screen, with convincing rumors back up that theory.

Why do you need a 4K resolution on a phone? You don’t when it’s in your hand, but it’s important when your phone doubles as a VR headset screen. Otherwise, you’ll see individual pixels when it’s just two inches from your face.

What about the Note 8 screen size? The phone series has stuck to a 5.7-inch screen ever since the Note 3, but it’ll almost certainly break from tradition.

A 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is more likely, because the Galaxy S8 Plus has reached that tipping point. It’s really hard to see it being any smaller than that.

We expect the Note 8 to nearly eliminate the top and bottom bezel, just like the S8 and S8 Plus do, and tout a wraparound edge-to-edge screen left to right.

Samsung’s ‘Infinity Display’ doesn’t seem like a one-off marketing term. It’s here to stay. But it means there may be no psychical home button on the Note 8.

Instead, the Note 8 is rumored to have a pressure-sensitive screen that brings up different menus and options depending on how hard you press the display.

More than cloning Apple’s 3D Touch screen technique, however, we’re hoping that Samsung figures out a way to embed a fingerprint sensor in the screen.

The S8 and S8 Plus shift the fingerprint scanner to the back, awkwardly next to the camera lens. Cue the smudges. But returning it to the front, under the display would be ideal when such technology is ready.

Here’s another advancement we could see from the Galaxy Note 8: it could act as the first smartphone with a foldable screen. It’s unlikely, but a fun thought.

Samsung is rumored to be readying two foldable phones for 2017. But we don’t feel like it’s due for a flagship phone just yet – not this year at least.

The company could always test the waters with a foldable Note 8 variant, much like it tested curved screens with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

But we’ve been hearing word of a new phone called the Samsung Galaxy X, and that’s a more likely approach sometime after 2017.

TechRadar’s take: The Galaxy Note 8 will almost certainly continue Samsung’s streak of debuting trying new technology in its second half of the year phone. At first it was bigger screens and S Pens, then the curved Galaxy Note Edge variant, and most recently the debut of Mobile HDR. What’s next? A 4K resolution at or around the 6.2-inch display size should give it a boost over the Galaxy S8 Plus along with expanded S Pen functionality. Less likely features include a fingerprint sensor embedded in the front glass and a foldable variant.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 design

Nothing is yet known about the design of the Note 8. For now, our best guess is that it won’t stray too far from the metal and glass sandwich that’s proved so popular for the company, but refinements are sure to be made.

For an idea, we can look at the Samsung Galaxy S8, which has no home button, tiny bezels above and below the screen, and the fingerprint scanner moved to the back, but an otherwise similar design to the S7 and Note 7.

TechRadar’s take: A similar look to the Note 7, but perhaps slightly slimmer and with less bezel.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 camera

Hottest leaks:

  • A dual-lens camera

As with so many things, we can look at the Galaxy S8 for clues at what to expect from the Note 8’s camera. It has a 12MP single-lens camera, but given the current trend for dual-lens cameras, and the fact that there seems to be an unspoken agreement among phone manufacturers that more pixels does not equal better, a dual-lens camera is our best guess right now.

We’d also imagine that whatever camera it gets will have optical image stabilization, given that the Note 7 does.

The front-facing camera meanwhile could be upgraded from 5MP to 8MP, as that is exactly what Samsung has done for the Galaxy S8.

TechRadar’s take: A dual-lens camera of around 12MP is our best guess.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 battery

The battery is likely to be big, and support fast charging. The juice pack in the Note 7 is 3500mAh and we’d expect at least that much from the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung has now revealed its findings from the Galaxy Note 7 battery fire investigation and confirmed it plans to ensure future phones won’t suffer from the same fault.

To make sure it doesn’t happen again, Samsung is implementing an “8 point battery safety check” on all future devices. If the Galaxy Note 8 does happen, we can expect Samsung to put a big focus on the battery.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 OS and power

Hottest leaks:

  • A powerful 3GHz+ octa-core processor
  • Android Nougat or Android O

Samsung tends to either use its own Exynos chips, or Snapdragon chips, or a combination of the two, with different regions getting different processors.

But in the Note range it always uses one of the best available chips, which by the Note 8 is likely to mean at least the Snapdragon 835, or the Exynos 8895, which is supposedly a 3GHz octa-core chip.

But the Note 8 may have something even faster. It’s also sure to have a lot of RAM – 4GB is the absolute minimum, since that would be a match for current flagships, but 6GB or even 8GB isn’t out of the question.

The operating system will of course be Android, either Nougat or Android O, and it’s sure to be overlaid with the latest version of Samsung’s Experience interface.

TechRadar’s take: The fastest mobile chip around and 6GB of RAM are our best guesses, but whatever the Note 8 uses it’s sure to be a real powerhouse.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 other features

Hottest leaks:

  • A stylus with a speaker
  • An iris scanner
  • An AI assistant

The S Pen is one of the standout features of the Note range, and it’s sure to return for the next model, but it’s likely to get better, and a patent points to a stylus with a built-in speaker.

What the speaker would do isn’t clear, but it could potentially read notes back to you, or work in combination with the phone’s speakers for louder audio.

An iris scanner is a likely Note 8 inclusion, given that the Note 7 had one and the S8 and S8 Plus have it, and apparently it will be more secure this time, though the fingerprint scanner is sure to return too. The phone is also likely to be dust and water resistant, have a microSD card slot and charge via USB Type-C, given that its predecessor did.

An AI assistant, built by some of Siri’s creators, and confirmed to be called Bixby, is also an obvious addition, since Samsung has already confirmed it for the Galaxy S8.

TechRadar’s take: The S Pen will likely improve, but we’re not sold on the speaker idea. Most of the Note 7’s features will also probably return – including the iris scanner.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price

All we have to go on for now is the price that the Galaxy Note 7 launched at, but it’s likely that the Note 8 will have a similar price tag. In which case, you can expect to pay around $850/£749/AU$1,349 for it.

TechRadar’s take: The Galaxy Note 8 is sure to be expensive, but probably won’t be much if any more than the Note 7.

Aside from distinctly fewer flames and explosions, there are a number of other things we’d like from the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and the following are our top wants.

1. A lower price

For the brief period that it was on sale, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was colossally expensive, coming in at $850/£749/AU$1,349 if you bought it off contract.

The size and specs of the phone went a long way towards justifying that price, but it still put the phone out of many people’s reach, so we’d like to see a lower price for the Note 8.

It’s unlikely, but you never know, Samsung might drop the price as a goodwill gesture to all its fans that have had to go without an upgrade in 2016.

2. 6GB of RAM

Most current smartphones have 4GB of RAM, but a few, such as the OnePlus 3, have launched with 6GB, and a Chinese variant of the Note 7 was supposed to do the same.

With the Note 8, we’d like to see all versions launch with at least that much. It might sound like overkill, but it would help power VR experiences, and besides, the Note series has always been at the cutting edge.

3. A 4K display

What would help VR even more than extra RAM is a sharper screen, and so we’d like to see a 4K display on the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung has been peddling QHD screens for a while now, and with the extra size of the Note it’s a prime candidate for a few more pixels.

4. Less sensitive buttons

It’s a minor niggle, but the capacitive buttons on the Note 7, and indeed many Samsung handsets, are overly sensitive, leading to many an accidental press, particularly for those who are new to the handset, so we’d like to see these made slightly less sensitive for the Note 8 – but only slightly!

5. A foldable screen

There’s been talk that Samsung could start launching handsets with foldable screens in 2017. So, could the Note 8 be one of them? It’s unlikely, but it seems like a natural evolution from the curved screens we have now, and would make the phone’s sheer size more manageable.

6. No more bezels

OK, a foldable screen might be asking a bit much, but Samsung could at least ditch the bezels surrounding the display. That could allow the company to either pack a larger screen into the same space, or shrink the handset size down.

Ditching the home button could prove problematic, since it houses the fingerprint scanner, but there have been rumors that Samsung might build the scanner into the screen itself.

7. A new design

Samsung has been iterating on the current design of its phones since the Galaxy S6, so by the time the Note 8 launches it will be about time for a shakeup.

We want the curved screen to stay, unless the alternative is a foldable one, but a change to that metal and glass sandwich would be appreciated, as long as it still looks just as stylish and premium.
