Having sold half a million T series smartphones to date, Turkcell targets to both upgrade everybody to smartphones with Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5, offering the maximum technology at the lowest price advantage, and to change its customers' telephone usage habits via smart applications developed by Turkcell that simplify their lives.

Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5, with an NFC featured custom-made fridge magnet, and boxed within the handsets, enables users to experience a global first; shopping through the Mobile Order application.  Once the user taps the fridge magnets with their device, the Mobile Order application is automatically opened up on the device, allowing them to order from all participating companies.  Then, the merchant and products that wanted to be ordered, as well as the address details and payment option are selected to complete the transaction.  The application is server based so all product details can be changed over-the-air in real time.  The Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5 Mobile Assistant application can search, find, and answer questions such as invoice information, outstanding balance, weather conditions or the nearest pharmacy, while the Smart Response application enables the device to change settings and receiving a call without pushing any buttons, among other functions.  Additionally, the device features the Turkcell TV application with more than 42 TV channels, as well as the Tunein radio application, which makes it possible to tune in to more than 50 thousands stations without any interference.

The device, equipped with the latest Android operating system (4.0 - Turkish) to enrich user experience, has a 3.5 inch sensitive touch screen with brighter and clearer screen scene, due to its embedded LCD IPS technology.  Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5, developed in cooperation with ZTE, ensures fast and easy use of all applications embedded on the device via its 800MHz Qualcomm processor.  Moreover, the 1,400 milliamp battery used in the Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5 enables a standby duration 200 hours on 3G and 240 min of talking.  Presenting an improved photo and video experience with its 5 megapixel automatic focused camera, Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5 comes with an internal NFC skill of 8GB memory space in total, including a 4GB internal memory, as well as a 4GB external memory card.

Turkcell customers, realizing an additional payment from TRY5 up to TRY26 along with their existing tariffs for 24 months, can own the new member of T series, Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5.  While prepaid (Haz─▒r Kart) customers can have Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5 paying TRY24 for 24 months, MaxiPLUS 5 can be owned with a down payment of TRY549 in cash.

Turkcell Chief Consumer Business Officer Emre Sayin commented that "Since we launched our first own-branded handset with the vision to provide equal opportunities in mobile internet and aiming to make everybody a smartphone owner; we have sold approximately half a million T series devices.  In fact, 90% of our customers took their first steps with a smartphone through our T series.  Looking at the usage patterns, we see that users of the T series make full use of the capabilities their devices provide, show great interest in Turkcell's rich mobile internet and mobile application world and use the advantages of mobility to the max.  This only goes to show how accurate our target is. And now we've turned a new page, moving one step further to this target with Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5.  Designed to deliver the best mobile internet and multimedia experience, Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5 will change telephone usage habits with smart applications developed by Turkish engineers to facilitate daily life.  We call on everybody to make the move to the smartphone experience via Turkcell MaxiPLUS 5 with maximum features at minimum prices."
