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.

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.
