Telstra 4GX HD Accessories
Telstra 4GX HD Review
We've got a great selection of accessories for the Telstra 4GX HD mobile phone. The 4GX HD is a great handset, outright pre-paid mobile phones are an excellent way to pick up a new mobile without breaking the bank. And the new range of smartphones available from all of our network providers are certainly nothing to sneeze at, as witnessed by the Telstra 4GX HD.
Prepaid outright mobile phones are not the clunky models from years ago, able to text and call perfectly, but struggling to open browser windows, run apps efficiently, or do much more beyond simple functionality.
These phones can now run multiple apps at once, provide a slick browsing experience, and while not matching the power or storage capabilities of your more expensive smartphones, can provide the perfect lightweight experience.
As such, models like the Telstra 4GX HD are a great choice for a first smartphone, either for kids or those who are older, for travellers looking for an inexpensive smartphone while travelling Australia, or for those among us who happen to lose their phones at an alarming rate.
Telstra have decided to put this phone's most exciting features right on its actual name - that's the 4GX and HD capabilities. What does this mean for you, though?
Well, first up there's the 4GX part. This means that you have access to Telstra's fastest data network, where available. The 4GX network is a step up from the 4G network, and can provide data speeds of up to twice as fast as 4G. This means that you're able to load pages quicker, stream content more easily, etc. The 4GX network doesn't cover the whole of the country though, so when you're out of range the phone will revert to the 4G and 3G networks, respectively, when each of them are available.
The other most wanted feature from the Telstra 4GX HD is the 5 inch HD, 1280 x 720 resolution, IPS capacitive touch screen. With an HD screen you're now able to watch content on an inexpensive phone all in brilliant HD resolution.
Prepaid customers should be warned that streaming or downloading HD content while using Telstra data networks can be prohibitively expensive. Users should instead take advantage of WiFi networks to stream or download large files.
While the cameras on the Telstra 4GX HD aren't exactly going to rival an iPhone's, for example, for most situations, especially in the day time, they will generally do the trick. The phone is fitted with an 8MP rear camera, with up to 5 times optical zoom and a 5MP forward facing camera, for all your selfie taking indulgence.
At the time of print, the Telstra 4GX HD is advertised for sale for $119 (online price only) on the Telstra website. This option also comes with free delivery for online orders. The handset also comes with a Telstra pre-paid SIM with includes $10 worth of calls and SMS to get you started with a new number if you aren't carrying your old prepaid number over.
The phone is locked to the Telstra network and may only be unlocked by paying a fee. You're able to use this phone with all Telstra SIMs, including ones on a plan or other prepaid SIMs.
Your mobile phone is nothing without the right accessories to support it. Like any other smartphone, there are a range of Telstra 4GX HD accessories that you can purchase to help with running your phone more smoothly.
To keep your phone safe from knocks, drops, and spills, it's in your best interests to pick up a case to help to keep your phone in tip top condition for the extent of its lifetime. A good option for the Telstra 4GX HD is the leather case. They are soft and smooth in your hands and flip out to open the phone. These cases also come with card slots so that all you need to carry out with you is your phone case.
While your phone will come with its own charger, often one charger is not enough. You'll often want to keep chargers in often visited places, such as the bedroom, the kitchen, and your office. With a few chargers, you'll never have to worry about not having a mains charger when you need one. You can also pick up just the cable part of the charger separately.
For those that spend a lot of time in the car it can also be beneficial to invest in a car charger to charge your phone while you are driving. These will either plug into your cigarette lighter slot, or a USB slot, depending on what model you purchase.
Car cradles hold your phone in an upright position while you are driving, so that you can view GPS directions on your phone to help lead you to your destination. Some of these cradles are simply the cradle alone, while some of them also offer charging capabilities.
Bluetooth technology allows us to connect wirelessly to other Bluetooth enabled devices. What this means for your phone is that if you have a Bluetooth headset, you can use it to take calls on your phone while it's in your pocket or bag - and all without wires. Bluetooth car kits gives this handsfree capability by linking in with your car audio.
You can think of a powerbank as your go anywhere phone charger. You power up these devices and they store charge, so that you can take it on trips to power up your phone when you're away from a socket or your car. Powerbanks usually carry the equivalent of a few charges of your phone.
Complement your brilliant music collection by pairing your phone with a Bluetooth speaker. Often very portable, Bluetooth speakers allow you to play your phone's music in excellent quality audio, far above that which you would get from your phone's built in speaker.
