Welcome to the Telstra/ZTE F852 mobile phone review. This model is essentially a replacement for the F256 but in a higher quality clam shell and better screen.
We only had this phone a a little while before choosing the other models because the OS is virtually the same as the F256 with graphical improvements. We wanted something different.
Speaking of which the main internal screen is much better due to the upgrade to 240 x 320 pixel or QVGA resolution although the external display remains the same.
The main feature missing is a FM radio which is an important selling point these days since the iPod still doesn’t have one.
The main feature is that it has access to the NextG or 3G network and web based functionality that entails. However you will need a decent web access plan to make use of it.
All up the Telstra/ZTE F852 is another typically good mobile phone. It’s easy to use and looks reasonably good. Targeted in the mid range sales category it works really well just like it’s predecessors if you can live without a FM radio.
