Optus is sweetening online pre-orders for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL with an Xbox giveaway.

The first 300 existing Optus customers to preorder the Lumia 950 and 950 XL online will receive an Xbox One console valued at $499. It will have a 1TB hard drive and come with FIFA 16.

The Singtel-owned carrier is alone in offering Microsoft’s Windows 10 mobiles on postpaid contracts, as reported earlier by PCWorld. Vodafone will not offer the smartphones and Telstra has yet to comment.

Both smartphones are being offered on Optus’ $80 My Plan over 24 month contracts. The 5.2-inch Lumia 950 is free over the life of the contract, while the 5.7-inch 950 XL is an additional $4 per month.

Bonus data is available to customers who pre-order the smartphones on the Optus $80 My Plan, pushing the quota up from 6GB to 8GB per month.

Online pre-orders for the two smartphones open today, 30 November, while the smartphones will be available in stores on 7 December.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
