Last year, Google turned the mid-range phone market on its head by introducing the ludicrously-priced and well-specced Pixel 3a. A few other brands have followed suit since then, but none have been quite as exciting as the new iPhone SE. Now it truly seems like flagship inclusions at lower price points are here to stay - and it's about damn time. The trend of $1,500 - $2,000 becoming the norm for new phones over the last few years has been bad for buyers. A new middle ground has been long overdue and we welcome it.But is the resurrected iPhone SE actually a good phone to buy in 2020?Read more
Telstra iPhone SE Plans
The cheapest iPhone SE plan through Telstra is a 64GB model on a ‘Small’ plan. It costs $70.66 across 36-months and you get 30GB data. But you shouldn’t buy this plan – for a few dollars more you can get double the storage capacity.
Our value for money recommendation here is the 128GB iPhone SE on a ‘Small’ plan. It costs $73 a month but you still get 30GB data (Telstra recently doubled the data on all ‘Small’ plans) and only have to sign up for a 24-month contract. It is only $2.34 a month more expensive than the 64GB version mentioned above and is absolutely the better deal.

Vodafone iPhone SE Plans
The most budget-friendly Vodafone iPhone SE plan is the 64GB model on a $40 Red Plus Plan. It comes to a total of $59.80 a month across 36-months and comes with 10GB data.
Our pick here is the 128GB iPhone SE on the $45 Red Plus Plan (which is usually $50 a month). It’s $78.04 a month and comes with 60GB data – plus you only have to commit to 24-month.

Optus iPhone SE Plans
The cheapest iPhone SE plan through Optus comes in at $59.80 a month – this will get you the 64GB device and 10GB of data month on a 36-month ‘Small’ contract.
Our recommendation is the $83.53 a month plan that comes with a 128GB device and 60GB data on a 24-month ‘Medium’ contract. While it is more expensive you get 50GB more data than the ‘Small’ plan as well as twice the storage and a shorter contract period.
If this is a bit too pricey, but you’d still like a 128GB phone, you might want to consider dropping back down to a 10GB ‘Small’ plan if you know you don’t use much data, or opting for the 36-month contract option instead.
It’s worth noting that Optus is the only telco that is ranging the 256GB iPhone SE, so if you want that much storage you will only get it here.
