Telstra Tempo


The Telstra Tempo T815 is a 3G inexpensive usable smartphone to tempt you to upgrade or downgrade as per your requirements. This cheapest Android phone caters to your simple needs on sale as a pre-package – retailing between $79 and $49 outright. There are of course certain characteristics when dealing with any cheap prepaid phone package and you need to be aware of the shortfalls.

The Body Built

The Tempo is all plastic model highlighted by the white color scheme on the back. The body of the phone feels light and study and the rear’s plastic feels like the anti-slip finish used by Nokia. The touch screen doesn’t feel like glass but a plastic material and is scratch resistant. The Tempo does not feel premium in any way but at least it doesn’t feel like it will break too easily either..

In terms of hardware the Tempo is only a 3G phone but it is compensated by having Wi-Fi. The screen has a resolution of 480 x 800 and has 1.5Gig space for the user with a microSD slot for more memory.  It has the most basic 2MP camera andis a decent dual core CPU

In terms of use Telstra Tempo’s latest version of Android OS works perfectly and smoothly.  And in terms of software the Telstra Tempo has minimal extra software just the usual Telstra branded widgets and app. With acceptable price approx $49 – 79 AUD  this phone needs an additional data plan like other smart phones.
