If you missed out on the bonus Gear VR headset for pre-ordering a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge before the 11th of March, Optus has your back.

Optus is offering a bonus Gear VR to anyone ordering a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge online while stocks last. The phones are available with 32GB of onboard storage (and a microSD card slot) in Black, Silver or Gold from the Optus online store, with plans starting from $64 per month for the Galaxy S7 ($40 plan + $24 for phone) or $71 per month for the Galaxy S7 Edge ($40 plan + $31 for phone). The phones are on 24 month contracts and if you want more data or inclusions you can pay more per month.

If you’re still stuck on the fence about the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, Chris and Jason found the phone to be a top notch performer in our review, fixing all the things they had issues with from the Galaxy S6 last year.

The Gear VR offers a refined Virtual Reality experience which is tuned by noted recent VR players Oculus, makers of the well known Oculus Rift headset. The Gear VR is normally worth $159 on its own, so it’s a pretty decent deal.

To grab a Gear VR with your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, head over to the Optus website to grab one before stocks run out.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
