If you've decided to stick with or switch to Telstra, we don't blame you. Telstra's Next G network is still our first pick for speed and coverage, though Optus and Vodafone are spending huge amounts of money to bridge this gap.
Below are the best handsets in Telstra's range, based on the our tests and experiences over the course of a standard CNET Australia review period. There are several similarities here to lists we've compiled for both Optus and Vodafone, but the inclusion of 4G handsets is an important difference to note. The HTC One XL, in particular, is worth a closer look.
You take the good with the bad, though, and Telstra's prepaid range is looking pretty dismal at the moment. So much so that we've only included one handset in this round-up: the Samsung Galaxy Ace. If you are thinking about prepaid and you want a choice, it'd be best to shop elsewhere.
