LG G4 goes on sale, Telstra, Optus and co offer freebies

Free smartwatches, Bluetooth speakers and microSD cards on offer

LG’s flagship G4 has gone on sale with carriers and retailers offering freebies to anyone who places an order.

Three weeks living with the G4 has us convinced it is a worthy smartphone flagship. Optus, Telstra and Harvey Norman will be ranging the smartphone and are rewarding customers who place an order ahead of the 14 July in-store sales date.

Here’s what’s on offer so far:

Optus

The first 100 customers who place an order with Optus will have the G4 bundled with the Watch Urbane. This is LG’s premium smartwatch timepiece and it has a retail price of$479.

Optus is pitching a $72 a month cost for the G4 over 24 months, which works out to be monthly phone repayments of $12 on its $60 My Plan Plus. This works out to be more expensive than Samsung’s Galaxy S6, which has a monthly handset repayment of $9 per month.

Optus pre-orders start today online and will commence in store from 6 July.

Australia’s largest telco has not announced its pricing for the G4 smartphone, but it will exclusively sell the black leather variant for the first six weeks from launch.

Telstra is giving away 300 Music Flow P7s, which are LG bluetooth speakers valued at $189. Pre-orders from Telstra open a little later at 9am on 6 July and end at 8am on 14 July.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
