Best part is, you're able to salary sacrifice the phone.
Even at the lower cost.

Haven't had the opportunity to play with the Gear VR yet, looking forward to having a go with that, butI love the AKG headset. Build quality just seems okay but they sound great from initial impressions

Got a text from Samsung saying it may take up to 28 days for my Gear VR to arrive due higher than anticipated demand. No problem for me, was going straight to eBay anyway.

Battery performance is awesome. Only used 25% from 5:30pm to 2:00am. Mostly using Facebook but watched a few videos etc.

Agreed. I've been awake since 5am and have used my phone throughout the day, 62% here with about 30 minutes of music playback via BT.

Does anyone have any clear info on the warranty? I broke my Xperia Z3 2 days ago so looking for a new phone. Last Samsung I had was an S4. I've been trying to find out if they still replace the screen or not. The S4 came with 2 replacements. I can find info on the premium cover but not too clear on the standard cover.

2 years in Australia (+ a couple of months extra according to some anecdotal reports of warranty claims). As for repairs, they do for a few more years.

In Korea, like most parts of the world, we get only 1 year (+ a few weeks), but Samsung's customer service in Korea is bloody awesome. Here, their mobile repair centers seem to carry parts for 4 years.
