Have you ever wanted to see where and how Telstra tests all their devices before they’re brought to market? Well, even if you don’t, it’s super short and interesting. Each device is tested by Telstra before being announced and brought to market, so if it fails the tests they throw at it, then it’s not worth selling to consumers.
Telstra said in their blog post that each 3G device goes through 4000 tests before being accepted. These tests include GPS location tests to ensure the GPS gives an accurate location at all times when moving (this helps for turn-by-turn navigation, of course). They also test their apps, such as Foxtel, on each device to ensure they work at a satisfactory standard. Considering the shoddy quality we’ve seen on Foxtel Mobile lately, the standards might need a review.
