Telstra Smart-Touch 2 Android phone

 

Telstra's Smart-Touch is back for round two, but the user experience remains frustratingly sluggish

Extremely low price ; Android functions and features ; XT9 Trace text input

Slow and sluggish ; Terrible camera ; Issues with video playback

Telstra has obviously taken the criticism of its original Smart-Touch on board as the Smart-Touch 2 clearly aims to address most of its predecessors issues. However, the chief complaint about the first Smart-Touch hasn't been resolved on the...

Telstra Smart-Touch 2 Android phone (preview)

 

Telstra's Smart-Touch 2 gets a bigger screen and a faster processor

Extremely low price ; Good sized 3.5in screen ; Flexibility of Android OS

Downgraded camera ; Exclusive to Telstra

The Telstra Smart-Touch 2 appears to have addressed most of its predecessors issues, offering a larger screen and a faster processor. The Smart-Touch 2 also retains a low $99 asking price.

Low price ; Impressive functions and features of Android ; Access to Android Market

Small, low quality touchscreen ; Sluggish performance ; Mediocre build quality

Telstra's Smart-Touch may break the $100 price barrier, but it offers a mediocre user experience doing so. However, the Smart-Touch remains a good choice as an alternative to non-smartphones.

Telstra Smart-Touch

 

Telstra seems to think that the Smart-Touch is awesome. We beg to differ.

It's quite cheap

There are reasons why it's cheap. Many, many reasons

In the prepaid arena, the gulf between the Smart-Touch and phones that only cost a small amount more is quite considerable, especially considering it's only an Android 2.1 phone. You're likely to quickly outstrip the purchase price in ongoing prepaid...

Get What You Pay For

 

I needed a second phone and these were on special at AustPost as prepaid - I just transferred my SIM. I wrongly assumed that smart phones were all much the same. Having loved my HTC (apart from the feeling of my brain slowly cooking) the Smart Touch is...

Cheap, 3G

Unreliable, hard to navigate, too small to type without stylus

The worst phone I have ever owned!

 

This phone has been a nightmare since day one. It is frustrating to use, faulty, and has poor quality sound and photos. My advice- do NOT buy this phone. It's the worst one I have ever had the misfortune to use, and after 8 months of struggling I will...

Generally difficult to use. Typing texts is laborious, as the letters on the keyboard often only respond to heavy pressure. It has turned itself off regularly since day one, and when I tried to return it as faulty was to they would not repair or...

Awesome phone !

 

The Telstra Smart-Touch is an awesome phone that I cant live without. It was only $79 and came with $50 credit. It comes in two colours, either black, or purple. It also comes with a stylus which makes it really easy to use the touch screen. Most of...

Inexpensive, reliable, very fast to charge and work, most apps are free
