Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are arguably the most anticipated new smartphones this year, but who has the best deals for the new phones and which one should you pick?

The first thing you need to consider is the network itself. Some telcos have better coverage in some areas than others and coverage in your area should be a top priority as there are few things more frustrating than not getting coverage in your home or places you regularly visit or travel through.

All the telcos including Optus, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile have released the pricing of pre-order plans for the new devices.

Telstra was the first to announce its plans earlier in the week and is offering the S7 for $79 per month and the Edge for $86 with 1GB data and $550 worth of calls and texts. The plans top out at $195 for either phone, with 20GB data and unlimited talk and text.

For business users, plans start at $81 for the S7 and $88 for the Edge, including 1.5GB of data and $800 talk and text. These plans also go up to $195 for either phone, with 20GB data and unlimited talk and text.

Optus’ 24-month plans start at $64 per month for the S7 handset and unlimited calls, texts and 500MB data. For the S7 Edge, it will cost you $71 per month for the handset and same plan inclusions.

On a 24-month plan, Vodafone is offering the S7 Edge for $90 a month including handset, 6GB of data and unlimited texts and calls.

For the S7, Vodafone offers the handset, unlimited talk and text and 500MB of data for $75 month.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
