Telstra and Boost Mobile have quietly added ZTE devices to their line up of budget devices with the Telstra Essential Smart (ZTE A125) and Boost Jett (ZTE B125).

Both the devices, which are budget 4G enabled devices, look similar in design and specs which aren’t too bad and certainly could be worse. It is also Boost Mobile’s first Android Go device offering for customers.

So, let’s take a look at the specs to see what the devices are both offering:
