Telstra 4GX Smart Review
Telstra's range of Telstra branded mobile phones extends from basic, entry level models, through to top of the line smartphones, so there really is something available for everyone. Often priced very reasonably, this Telstra range is gathered from a number of mobile phone manufacturer's, hand picked by Telstra for their features, and rebranded with Telstra's labelling.
The Telstra 4GX Smart is one of these such phones. The 4GX Smart is a rebranded ZTE model, that's designed as an entry level mobile phone. The phone is available on Telstra as a prepaid phone and costs just $69 when purchased through the Telstra website. (Pirce correct at the time of writing)
Because of its low price point and capabilities, it makes a great handset either for older people, who may have a simple older mobile phone that needs upgrading, or as a first mobile phone for kids or teenagers. It's also a great choice for those that are on a budget or travellers.
The main drawcard of the Telstra 4GX Smart is, of course, its 4GX network capabilities. This means that the phone can access the fastest networks on the Telstra backbone, which makes data activities on the phone that much faster.
4G is what many of us are familiar with - the technology that allows us faster data access than the old 3G network. The 4GX network is Telstra's fastest capability, a step up from just 4G. It allows you (in theory) to access data twice as fast as the 4G network on a mobile phone that's capable of using the technology.
Because the phone is an entry level phone, it isn't stacked with fancy features, that's how Telstra can afford to keep the price down. That being said, the phone does come with a 4 inch screen, which, although not as big as say, the iPhone, has more than enough real estate for scrolling the news and such. It has a quad core 1.0GHz CPU that has 1GBof RAM and 8GB of ROM storage. You can expand the phone's memory with the 32GB micro SD slot, however the phone does not come with a micro SD card, this will need to be purchased separately.
It comes standard with everything that you'd expect from a smartphone, including a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera.
Telstra 4GX Smart Accessories
To enhance the capabilities of your mobile phone, as well as making sure that it remains safe, you should look to purchase accessories for your Telstra 4GX Smart.
What sort of accessories should you buy? Well, that's really up to you. First off you might like to think about getting yourself a leather case to keep your phone protected from knocks and drops. Getting yourself a case should be your number one priority. After all, phones are not built for knocking about and can break easily.
Next up you should think about charging. Even though your Telstra 4GX Smart will come with a charger, you will probably want to have more than one about, so that you don't run out of charge. A spare AC charger to plug into the wall is handy to have at work or in another room of the house. You might even like to purchase a USB port mains charger, if you have lots of USB devices that you would like to charge at once.
Still on chargers, if you go for long drives, or drive often, or for work, then you'll find a Telstra 4GX Smart car charger an essential piece of equipment. For an even better idea, you can pick up a car cradle. These can hold your phone and give you GPS directions while you drive (from your phone), which makes navigation that much easier. If you are finding that you get a low network signal in your car, you can mount an antenna to the car to pick up signals and send them to your phone. This way you'll always have data and be able to make calls, even in rural areas.
If you're more likely to be out of the house for hours on end, not at work or in the car, then a powerbank is your best bet for charging options. A powerbank stores up charge for your mobile phone and can be used anywhere at anytime. Most powerbanks will charge a smart phone many times over. A rule of thumb is the more milliamp hours (mAh) a powerbank has, the more charge it is capable of storing. Make sure to charge up your powerbank though, they are no use to you out and about when they are empty!
