Samsung A551

 

A mid-range handset built specifically for use on Telstra's Next G network, the Samsung A551 is a solid, but not outstanding phone.

Build quality, access to Next G services, call quality, comfortable keypad

HSDPA data speeds ; Next G services ; Mid-range price point

MicroSD expandable memory ; LCD display has poor viewing angle

In terms of outright expense, the A551 sits in the middle of Telstra's current range. At the time of writing, Telstra offers the A551 on a $30 plan or for AU$559 as an upfront cost. This seems a hefty charge for what is essentially a basic handset with...

The a551 is an affordable telstra next phone, pricing at only $149AU. it has a decent music player, fast internet speed, decent screen size: 2.1". The camera takes clear pictures with a low file size and a front camera usable that actually takes photos...

3G, battery life, keypad, camera(s), screen size, speaker and music player

organiser is too basic (for me anyway)
