Telstra has quietly added two new handsets to their pre-paid line, with the Oppo A57 and their own Telstra branded 4GX Premium phones now available to purchase.

The handsets will set you back $269 for the Oppo A57, while the 4GX Premium is available for a slightly more sedate $149. Looking at the specs rundown for both devices and based on both devices and features they are offering for the price listed, they certain are offering brilliant specs for your hard earned dollars.

Oppo A57

Oppo for us here in the Ausdroid office, has been a mixed reaction given the company does make beautiful, well priced devices. What we’re not such big fans of is ColorOS overlay they use which can, at times, be very frustrating to use. Most of the sins in ColorOS have cropped up in the later versions, so as a slightly older deice, you could do a whole lot worse for $269.
