I'm going for the Edge in black or sliver. Can't decide on the colour just yet and it's doing my head in.

 

Also a report I just read is saying that the Korean and Chinese S7 will have the Samsung branding removed from the front of the phone. I hope that's the case for the NZ models too!

Vodafone pricing for open term plans separates the monthly phone price from plan.

 

S7 comes in at $987 and Edge at $1,179.

The black is true black this time, and a black phone always looks great, plus it has the benefit of a less reflective front panel for viewing the screen.

 

But damn the gold platinum (or silver as it looks to me) just looks like a million bucks, so I think it will win the day.

I saw that and notice that those prices are substantially cheaper than Sparks and 2 Degrees pricing - which are just over $200 more expensive per phone.

I wonder if the prices difference is because of the extra bonus that spark and 2degrees give.

 

Still not really a bonus when you are paying for it.

i ve got the note 5 gold (will be up for sale soon ) just a little to blinge for daytime, just shines bit to much i say,i watch bit of  netflix on it. darker background be better. 

 

even thou i don't mind it , i thought i do a change from the traditional black i ve always chosen .

I've pre ordered a Black Onyx S7 and am looking forward to it arriving. No idea if I was early enough to pick up a Gear VR but time will tell I suppose. Now I just need to justify it.

Ok, done a complete flip on colour. After more you tube viewings, the silver is just to reflective and shiny, esp the back panel. Black it is I think.

Yeah I saw those this morning. The low light shots are definitely impressive for a mobile phone camera. There's still a fair bit of obvious noise reduction if you look closely but that's to be expected.

A converted iPhone user here. I'm happy to say that'll I'll be upgrading to a S7, probably in gold (stereotypical of an iPhone user right?).

 

A quick question incase anyone knows, does 2degrees offer a free Samsung VR like Spark does?

Did you mean that they give the the gear VR on the 49 plan or that they don't give it but do have a pre order on the phone?

 

 

 

I spoke with 2degrees today (I'm with them currently), they don't give anything except the 6gb of free data over 6 months. 

 

 

 

I switched over to Vodafone today as the phone is $200 less than spark or 2degrees, they also provide you with a 64GB MicroSD card.

 

Their basic Red+ plan ($59.99 also comes with free 2gb data every month for 12 months).

 

This made it the instant winner. 

 

 

 

I will never go with spark due to their plans not supporting calling to Australia which takes the Gear VR out of the equation :(

Could you explain where you get the 200 dollars less figure from?

 

By my math (and correct me if I am wrong) these are how the two phones and plans differ:

 

2degrees
Plan 49.95 + Phone 49 = 98.95
98.95 * 24 Months = 2374.80
2374.80 + One off fee 29 = $2403.80

 

Vodafone
Plan 59.99 + Phone 37 = 96.99
96.99 * 24 Months = 2327.76
2327.76 + One off fee 99 = $2426.76

 

Granted, you get an extra 2 gigs of data with Vodafone and a free SD card. However, for those looking for the cheapest plan, surely 2degrees would be a better option?
