Telstra F850

 

The bottom line: The Telstra F850 offers a relatively inexpensive way to jump aboard the carrier's Next-G platform, as long as you don't mind travelling in the slow lane. Read our Australian review.

Inexpensive way to sample Next G ; Good battery life

Custom power connector ; Poor screen quality ; Ordinary battery life ; No HSDPA coverage

The F850 doesn't pretend to be the top of the line in Next G phones -- for that, you'd need to look at the JASJAM, although there you'd strangely still need to omit mobile Foxtel. Perhaps that's a blessing in disguise. Anyway, the F850 is an...

had this for like 3 years since next g started and i got booted off CDMA, pretty good but not spectacular. never had any problems ith it but its not full featured. (my friend and cousin have N95's) i listen to music but dont use the camera and download...

Battery life was once good ; 2GB memory ; Music, YT videos, Text, Games and ok calling (everything i wanted. dont care about camera)

battery life isnt great any more ; ugly ; you can tell its low quality but i look after it so that doesnt matter

Had my ZTE for 23 months worked fine. Error message popped up one day. Couldn't use it. Contacted ZTE Australia, who told me to send it to them. Within a week they had expressed posted a brand new one back to me. Great company! Never had any other...

Good mobile. Does what I need it to do. Make phone calls, music, photos, video calls. Battery life is excellent

I hate the unchangable 24 hour time format

What a cheap and nasty piece of crap. And fancy telstra being stupid enough to supply this to us. Even worse is the fact that I was conned into signing up for it.

It's a mobile telephone...You make calls from it without being tied to the wall by an electrical/'phone cord

Everything else...Especially the predictive text (The only other thing I could be bothered to use this 'phone for.)
