The stunning new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
