This phone is Telstra Blue Tick certified. That means it’s certified to give superior voice coverage in rural and regional areas.
How do we test phones for Blue Tick?
We do most of our testing in purpose-built facilities. Here we can simulate exactly how a new phone would perform as if it were being held in your hand on the very edge of a coverage area.
We seal the handsets in our specialised echo-free chamber to ensure the tests are accurate. We then take the handset out into rural areas to replicate these test results. That way we can be certain that only the best-performing phones are awarded the Blue Tick.
