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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

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.
