    Really not sure on what phone to get. Get a Samsung and only get an update to Android 7.0 (maybe) or get a Nexus 6P and get a few years of updates.

      The Galaxy flagships usually have a really good community for custom ROMS if you'r willing to delve into that. Obviously not as good as the frequent Nexus updates but something to consider.

      I jump to Cyanogenmod about 12 months after getting a new phone to keep up to date. It worked for my S2 and I'm now running 6.0 on my note 4. Its heaps smoother and easier to use than the official ROM and updated regularly by a few brilliant folks at XDA-Developers. Android Pay won't work though.

        The s6 still doesn't even have cyanogen yet.
        I'd rather take a nexus or moto over a Samsung for the plain droid. Samsungs mutilated android operating system is just terrible, ID rather buy an iPhone and I hate apple.

        PS. Praise durate!

    You need to check your bonus Data for Vodafone before Posting. $80 plan has 8GB data, $100 Plan 12GB data and the $130 plan 20GB data.

    Your Virgin link is broken. There's a "g" in the url that shouldn't be.

    Although commonly used, "pre-order" is incorrect. It's just order. You don't add the pre- prefix to the front. You don't pre-order a new phone, you just order it. You don't place a pre-order; you place an order.

      The oxford dictionary definition of the word "pre-order" is to "Place an order for (an item) before it is available for purchase".

      You might have been right a hundred years ago, but languages evolve and pre-order is the correct word to use for this situation.

        But it must be available for purchase otherwise you wouldn't be able to place an order, and you can, so pre-order is incorrect. A pre-order (for example) would be putting your name on a list 3 months ago to ask one to be allocated to you to buy when they became available for sale. Or is it, I think so, I'm confused ..... damn it my brain is going to explode.

          I'd say "purchase" means take ownership. Obviously the dictionary just goes along with what people say, it doesn't have to make sense (I think 'LOL' is in the dictionary even!)

          Maybe it started as pre-purchase-order and just got shortened! Although pre-purchase isn't the correct term as you don't pay for it until it arrives...

          This is too much thinking on a Friday for my liking!

          It isn't available for actual purchase until March 11 so it is a pre-order

    I ended up buying one outright from Mobileciti. Telstra gave no option to buy outright in the pre-order and apparently Telstra Business accounts won't get them till the end of March.

      this is probably the same for all telcos right now, since they arent making much $$$ with out-right.

      pre-order option was still not available on samsung's website, so i went to the local optus store near work, they said you can only pre-order if you are signing up for a plan. Out-right is only available until they've got stead flow of stocks.

      so i went back to F5 bashing samsung's website, and finalled pre-order page opened up some time in the afternoon.

    The manufactureres of 'smart-'phones' can make all types of improvements in the hand-held computer components, too bad that In many parts of Australia the telephony component is almost useless. In my area of a modern city the connection signal is zero with every carrier except one.
