Virgin Mobile is a subsidiary of Optus, who will also be offering the HTC 10, who supplies the Virgin Mobile 4G network. You can check out the coverage of the Virgin/Optus network on their website.

Jason had a quick look at the HTC 10 and wrote out his initial thoughts down after a brief hands-on and after a longer period of time, I can concur with his thoughts as well as adding that the battery life is excellent.

Pre-orders will begin shipping on the 3rd of May, and can be pre-ordered from the Virgin Mobile website or from Virgin Mobile on 13 63 69.

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.

May 3rd, pricing is pretty much lineball with Optus and Vodafone, but still a little cheaper than Telstra S7 plans.

Impatiently awaiting Telstra’s announcement.


Is the SOT of 6hrs normal usage or had you disabled functions to get the best result?

That sort of battery life from a 3000mah better is stellar!

Good news about the battery life. Can’t decide between this and S7 Edge.
