Guide to the table

Price is based on a survey of online retailers. Mobile phone prices change often and can vary according to their accompanying plans. Shop around to get the best prices. Note: most GSM mobile phones are no longer sold with SIM cards, so you will probably need to purchase one separately.

Telecom XT compatibility

In general, the technology used in the mobile phones we tested makes them all compatible with 2degrees and Vodafone's network, while only phones equipped with 850MHz 3G frequencies will work on Telecom's XT network. It's important to check the network compatibility before you buy. Also see our Mobile phones for rural use report, for more XT phone test results.

  • Web browsing and email access: only on phones that had a display area of more than 18cm² and resolution of at least 240x320 pixels, data transfer over UMTS and WiFi, an email client and HTML browser, and a full keyboard (physical or virtual).
  • Music player: only if the phone came with stereo headphones (wired or bluetooth), played MP3s, and had more than 1GB of memory – and if file transfer was possible via memory card or supplied USB cable.
  • Camera and video (camcorder) quality: only if the camera resolution was more than 2MP and if the phone had more than 1GB of memory (including expandable memory such as a micro-SD card).
  • GPS navigation: only on phones that had a real GPS receiver, maps software, and a display resolution of more than 240x320 pixels.
  • Syncing with a computer: only if it was possible to sync the computer’s contacts (phone and email), calendar dates, emails, applications (downloads from app stores) as well as music, pictures and video (via USB and without additional software or internal shifting procedures). Contacts, email and calendars were all based on a Google account.
