Is Telstra Australia's best mobile carrier?

Telstra comfortably ahead of VHA in our online poll

Is Telstra's Australia's best mobile carrier? According to GoodGearGuide's readers it is, winning 38 per cent of the votes in our latest online poll.

We asked our readers "What company do you consider to be the best Australian mobile carrier?" and ran the poll for two weeks in our mobile phone section.

Telstra was a clear winner ahead of rivals Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) and Optus, which polled 23 per cent and 16 per cent respectively.

Richard Branson's Optus subsidiary Virgin Mobile racked up 15 per cent of the vote to sit in fourth place, while a further five per cent voted 'other'.

The range of quality smartphones on offer from Telstra — the iPhone 4, HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire are all sold by the telco — could be one factor. Its Next G network also has a well-deserved reputation for good speed and coverage.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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