Aldi - Onix Phones - 21-02-15
Aldi is back at it again, offering not one, but two new mobile phones for sale as of this Saturday, the 21st of February. The Onix branded phones are fairly mid-range in specs with a fairly compact form-factor to match.

The phones are priced at $129 each and despite some differences in design appear to have fairly similar specs. The Tempo Australia website (Australian distributors of Onix products) doesn’t appear to list either phone, so the specs supplied on the Aldi website will have to suffice.

Windows Phone: Android Phone:
Windows 8.1OS Android 4.4.2
Quad core processor
4″ Display
4GB Internal Storage with microSD card expansion
Dual SIM
Bluetooth 4.0, GPS (with A-GPS)
5MP Rear Camera with Auto-Focus

Android Phone :

Windows Phone :

Both phones come with a 1 Year Warranty, and should also be covered by the Aldi 60-Day satisfaction guarantee. If you’re interested in either phone, they go on-sale this Saturday the 21st of February at your local Aldi store.

Bonus:
Looks like you can pick up a Bluetooth enabled ‘Selfie Stick’ for $14.99 and a 32GB microSD Card for $17.99 while you’re at it.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Got Windows phone, looks nice, but have issues while on a call, it makes crackling noise and drops the call. I want to say it is good, but this phone doesn’t deserve after experiencing this issue everyday.

Hey they may be dual sim but the Aldi web site says only 2G! This sucks in comparison with 2013 offer of 3G smart phone for only $20 more.

Right? You can buy a Lumia 520 for $29.00 straight from Microsoft.

You can use an ALIDmobile SIM card in any network unlocked handset that is compatible with the 850Mhz and 2100 Mhz frequencies.Sim 1 is 3G where available, dropping to 2G if no 3G.
Sim 2 might only be 2G.
