Samsung Galaxy A34

Samsung's mid-range Galaxy handsets are heading to Australia in April. The budget Galaxy A14, semi-premium Galaxy A54 and the happy medium Galaxy A34 will all be available this year on a plan through Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. If you want a little more grunt but don't want to fork out for the A54, the Samsung Galaxy A34 might be the right choice for you. Here are the best deals available on the A Series middle child in 2023.

If you don't want to fork out for Optus or Telstra's network, you can nab a pretty nifty deal on the Samsung Galaxy A34 through Vodafone

At launch, the cheapest Galaxy A34 5G plan available in Australia comes courtesy of Vodafone's $45 Small Plan. You can bundle the Galaxy A34 5G with Vodafone's cheapest plan for as low as $61.62 per month on a 36-month payment arrangement if you're all about saving dough. Ultimately, you'll end up paying the same price for the handset overall if you opt for the 24-month payment alternative but many Australians like to keep their monthly costs manageable in these financially fraught times. 

Vodafone's cheapest plan will net you 40GB to use per month, as well as the usual unlimited standard national calls and texts. Of course, it all comes with Vodafone's popular $5-per-day international roaming perk (which basically lets you use your regular allowance for just $5 per day when travelling abroad). 

Not sold on Vodafone's offer? Take a look at the Galaxy A34 plans on offer from Telstra and Optus too.

Samsung has announced availability and pricing details for the Galaxy A series smartphones coming to Australia in 2023. Follow the links below to find each new phone on a plan:

Galaxy A34 outright pricing in Australia

Starting at $599 outright.

If you're thinking about buying the Galaxy A34 5G outright, you can expect to say around $599 at launch. That's $100 cheaper than the semi-premium Galaxy A54 and an even longer walk from the $379 Galaxy A14 5G. 

The Samsung Galaxy A34 is available outright through a number of Australian retailers, like JB HI-FI, but at the time of writing, the cheapest deal on the Galaxy A34 comes courtesy of Kogan at $597 (both the Awesome Graphite and Awesome Lime variants). 

Samsung Galaxy A34 5G vs Galaxy A54 vs Galaxy A14 5G and Galaxy A14 4G

What's the diff?

This year, the Galaxy A series is a little stripped down in Australia (no Galaxy A74 this time around). The gap between the Galaxy A34 and the Galaxy A54 isn't too significant (besides the A54's exclusive Violet variant). But it's a big jump from the $379 Galaxy A14 5G to the $599 Galaxy A34.

Most notably, the Galaxy A34 gets you a more premium AMOLED display (still 6.6 inches diagonally) that can deliver 120Hz refresh rates (smoother than the A14's 90Hz refresh rate). You also get some nicer camera improvements, like OIS (Optic Image Stabilisation) and AF (Auto-focus). The A34 also offers a few more mainstays of modern Samsung smartphones, an in-screen fingerprint reader and IP67 water and dust resistance.

On paper, it's the best Galaxy A series option this year, unless you want a slightly faster processor or a 50MP main shooter.
