Saw this ages back but couldn't to a stock check like now.
I got three's lenovo P2 2 weeks ago, so glad I waited and didn't get the ultra 7, the P2 is awesome for the money,
#2
There are 2 bush phones at the same price with, what looks to me, the same or better specs.
Any advice?
#3
Other than the OS being more up to date, what makes this better than the SU6? I've seen a lot of people saying they prefer the SD615 processor from the SU6 versus the Mediatek in this one.

I wouldn't bother with any Bush model, regardless of price.

They are poorly built, and usually have software issues due to a total lack of optimisation. The cameras are always terrible too. Plus they don't get OS or security updates.

Saw this today at Asda for £112.50 without a requirement to buy a top up.

This probably shows that its a problem with cheap Android phones in general, seeing as though each handset from a different manufacturer (SU6 = ZTE Blade S6 Lux, SU7 = Alcatel Pop 4S).

Sent my ultra 6 four times for repair due to a faulty headphone jack. Vodafone suck.
#14
Had the Ultra then went for the Platinum. Platinum is so much better.
All the vodaphones cameras are brilliant during the day. Night photos are very average.
Responsive though considering.
2GB Ram might struggle if you are a heavy user.

​Thanks for the info. Just checked the specs. My wife has a ultra 6, but never really used the nfc.
#17
biggest problem with these phones is the micro USB charge port. its way too fragile. I see so many phones with this issue. USB C will remedy this once more companies been using it
#18
my and my friend's smart ultra 6 didn't last one year. moto is much better.

I bought one for £140 in mint with the fast charger and have been very impressed.

I sent mine back twice for issues, then the 2nd time they said it was water damaged.

I complained to the CEO and got an ultra 7 to replace the 6. I'm quite happy with it but totally **** off with vodaphone.

Now this is the question. I've had the SU6 for the last 18 months and in every aspect, it's been great, aside from the camera. In daylight, the picture quality is ok at best and my camera is now very laggy and slow. No point even trying to take a picture in night/low light conditions. My secondary phone is an iPhone 5c which beats it hands down (and it's not even a great phone).

Great phone but actually very slightly inferior to the Vodafone Smart ultra 6 which was £99. Still voted hot though.

There is a glitch in the ordering system. If you select Saturday Delivery and buy more than 1 phone the site gives you a large discount for every extra phone you buy. There shouldn't be any discounts when choosing Saturday Delivery.

The total cost of QuantumX's order should be £57 + £11.95 = £68.95. But the actual order total comes to £36.05 due to the glitched 'discount'.

Gone for this, but couldn't get free delivery for some reason. Thanks for posting, seems like a cracking deal.

Has it got stock android on it?
#32
I would personally not go for this over a Smart Ultra 6 due to the downgrade in the processor the SU6 had a Snapdragon 615 and the SU7 has a Mediatek MT6755M, the Snapdragon is still a better chip than any Mediatek equivalent or slightly higher rated MTK chip.
#33
I just got an email from LG saying my out of warranty G4 is fixed and being returned to me. I will probably cancel my order and stick with my G4 for now. But still worried that it will start bootlooping in the future as there are many online threads which say they had a bootloop even after the repair.

Google it, I just googled it and they bent over backwards to help me.

I was getting fobbed off for a while both instore and over the phone before I resorted to it.

The camera is just as bad IMO.

Basically unusable in low light.

Completely agree, Platinum is in a different league. Quickcomm 3.0 too so it charges super quick with the supplied charger! Screen and sound is amazing, camera is the only thing that could be better IMO but still good!
