What is it? White Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 RRP? $299 Price Money found? $120 Where?

My mother decided it was time to join the smartphone revolution, so we investigated some entry-level smart phones that were compact and not too complicated to use. She wanted to buy one outright so she wasn’t locked into a particular network. The Samsung Galaxy seemed to fit the bill.

Need to know: The phone is available to buy outright for a similar price at telco shopfronts, but more often than not we found it to be locked to a network. This was one of the few online retailers that sold the phone unlocked and despatched from an Australian warehouse, not from an overseas supplier. While you may find the phone slightly cheaper from an overseas online supplier, it won’t have the Australian A-Tick, which confirms the item meets the safety and technical standard set by the ACMA. Comes with a 24-month manufacturer’s warranty.

Tested by Money: The phone is now in mum’s hot little hands and she’s taken to the features very quickly. No problems connecting to her telco provider. Welcome to the smart phone age, mum!
