Expert review by : Ross Catanzariti (goodgearguide.com.au)

Samsung A551

 

A mid-range handset built specifically for use on Telstra's Next G network, the Samsung A551 is a solid, but not outstanding phone.

Build quality, access to Next G services, call quality, comfortable keypad

Proprietary headphone and USB port, no included microSD card, no outstanding features

The A551 is a solid, but not outstanding mobile phone. It does a relatively basic job and access to the Next G services is notable, but there is nothing that sticks out about this handset.

As Next G handsets go, the A551 isn't the best, nor is it the worst. Its middle of the road design and feature set is matched by a mid-range price tag.

HSDPA data speeds ; Next G services ; Mid-range price point

MicroSD expandable memory ; LCD display has poor viewing angle

In terms of outright expense, the A551 sits in the middle of Telstra's current range. At the time of writing, Telstra offers the A551 on a $30 plan or for AU$559 as an upfront cost. This seems a hefty charge for what is essentially a basic handset with...
