[Update Friday, March 17 2023: Telstra Day for March has come and gone. While most of these deals are no longer available, you can find some big bargains in the Afterpay Day sales until Sunday, March 19. Otherwise, check out our best tech deals in Australia, which gets updated each week.]

Another Telstra Day has arrived and there’s big savings across a range of Samsung phones, with the standout offer landing on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. There’s currently AU$400 off this foldable, but the question is, is it worth it at this discounted price? 

Boasting a stylish clamshell design, excellent performance and even an IPX8 water resistance rating, this handset is a great option if you want a device with a retro-inspired flip phone design. Buying a premium handset isn’t just about looks alone, it has to perform just as well to make it worth your hard-earned cash. And in that department, it’s ace.

In Australia, the Flip 4 gets the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset that makes the phone tick along really well. And that’s enhanced with a generous 8GB of RAM. Plus, you’ll get at least another three years of OS updates and four years of security updates when you buy the foldable now.

We’ve seen the 128GB model of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 drop to about AU$1,116 previously, making this Telstra Day offer an even better one. So, if you’ve been keen on a foldable, now really might be the best time to pick one up.
