Weirdly enough though I have (a lot) worse Telstra reception with the galaxy express than I used to have with my old galaxy ace (like 1-2 instead of 4 bars).
So, I'll check with Samsung customer care and post here if anything of general interest comes out of it.
Thanks again.

Just did a network scan. I'm with Optus but it managed to find Telstra 2G and 3G so I'm assuming it'll work. Plus I've read in numerous places that Telstras frequencies are supported.
Hope this helps.

Hi
I am seeking clarification on specifications:
I purchased this phone after reading on GSM Arena that the phone supports 3G frequencies: 850, 900 and 2100Mhz, as well as lte.
Most important to me is 3G: 850Mhz (called 'nextG' by Telstra in Australia).
Now that I received the phone it reads on the package:
"HSPA+: HSDPA 42,2 Mbps / HSUPA 5,76 Mbps
Bi-bande (900/2100 Mhz)"
May I assume that this phone does not support 3G/next G: 850Mhz then?

Is your phone rooted or are you using it in hot weather/ direct sunlight or are you using a bulky case that stores heat?
If none of the above maybe get the phone looked at by a professional.

The review is quite accurate. Howevephonere are a few things that were not meantioned.
No option to add shortcuts to the lockscreen.
Impossible to change bottom dock shortcuts (phone , contacts etc.)

Purchasing this phone after my Htc Inc S died I was reluctant to buy a non Htc as I had gotten used to Sense over the years. Touchwiz does the job though. Its not Sense but it gets the job done.

Things that the reviews meantion that I can confirm:
Although the screen has a low rez its still a very good picture
The battery life is amazing on this phone
Under good light conditions the camera does a good job but otherwise its pretty shoddy.

Hope my 2cents help making a informed decision on weather to buy this phone.
I am personally very happy with it for the retail price I paid and would recommend it to people that are on a budget and dont want to fork out for the latest and greatest phones.
As long as you arent a photo buff this phone will do the job imo.
