Optus' exclusive LG F70 offers 4G for sub-$300

Fast Internet, four processing cores and a 5MP camera.

Optus has signed yet another smartphone exclusively with the LG F70 following the carrier’s recent deal with HTC.

Optus is offering the Android LG F70 on its $35 Optus My Play on a 24 month contract, or outright for $264. The outright price is more expensive than LG’s recommended retail price of $199, and positions the smartphone against the widely praised Motorola Moto G.

The F70 runs Android 4.4 KitKat overlaid with LG’s custom skin. The 4.5-inche IPS screen has a resolution of 480x800 and a density of 207 pixels-per-inch (ppi). Motorola’s Moto G fares better with its 326ppi and its cheaper $249 recommended retail price.

Inside the F70 has a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. Support for microSD storage is a borderline need when you consider only 1.5GB of memory is available for use out of the box. LG claims the F70’s humble hardware will be compatible with a 32GB microSD card.

The low-end smartphone has a 5MP rear camera capable of recording video in Full HD, and a front VGA camera.

The F70 redeems itself with a strong connectivity repertoire, which includes 4G internet, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and NFC.

The LG F70 is available now from Optus stores, alongside the HTC Desire 816, which Optus also signed exclusively.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
