THE CHEAPEST BRAND-NEW SMARTPHONE IN THE UK - ONLY £22.49 DELIVERED.

A scorching price for a smartphone running Android KitKat with the usual suite of smartphone functions.

The previous deal for this phone was at £24.99, now reduced by a further 10%!! The delivered price is for all buyers irrespective of Prime status.

THIS PHONE MAKES THE RASPBERRY PI LOOK WAY OVERPRICED!!!

Obviously cannot be compared to a flagship, but if you're looking for a cheap throwaway or a kids' phone this will do I believe this can be unlocked cheap.

Reviewers comment on how fluidly it appears to run given the specs and the epic battery life, probably due to the small screen.

Blurb from Amazon:

An affordable introduction to the world of Smartphones, the Vodafone Smart first 6 is easy to use and has all the features you'd expect from a Smartphone - at a price you wouldn't.

Smart but simple

Designed specifically to be easy to use, the Smart first 6 has a simple home screen with all the features you need. You're only ever one tap away from making a call, sending a text or email, taking a photo or browsing the web.

Stay connected

The Smart first 6 comes with Facebook and Twitter already installed - so you can update your status, catch up with the latest gossip and stay in touch with all your friends and family, straight out of the box.

Access to thousands of apps

The Smart first 6 runs Android - the world's most popular operating system - which gives you access to thousands of apps through the Google Play Store. So whether you're a fan of games, social media, music or movies, there's an app for everyone.

Why Vodafone?

Our outstanding network gives you excellent UK coverage for calls, texts and mobile broadband - indoors and out. We build our network so that signals from our masts overlap each other. It means you get fewer dropped calls and better mobile broadband. We focus on giving you a strong signal indoors and outside - unlike some operators who concentrate on spreading their signal over the widest area. We're the network of choice for many of the UK's emergency services. Ambulance, police and fire services know they can rely on us. We make sure you get the fastest service possible - even at the busiest times of the day - thanks to the extra capacity we build into our network.

How easy is this to unlock?


Many sellers on the 'bay with unlock codes, starting at 99p. e.g. Item No 151352457351
Any other android alternatives ?
Around this price?
Ive got this phone at the moment.

Unlocking is only 99p on a certain ebay website

However, its a very slow unresponsive smart phone. If you use it for anything more that telephone calls it will drive you crazy.

Does take a micro sd card though.
What are the app limitations on this?

Will it run whatsapp for e.g?
Reviewers talk about how smooth it is? These reviewers should lose their job. Running android, it's capable of so much, but doing anything other than calls etc might drive you insane. Unfortunately android isnt an efficient OS in comparison to others so people shouldn't be surprised, especially when you consider the price. Some dumb phones are this price.
I bought this when it was £25. Not a bad starter smartphone. If you are expecting an iPhone then you will be disappointed. But certainly plenty of phone for the money.

I found the screen unresponsive on mine too. Feels almost like one of those old resistive screens as opposed to the modern capacitive ones.

NW summer1727. Some folks expect the moon on a stick for 22 quid, if you look on Amazon the barebones, classic brick, proper dumb Nokia 105 is only £7 cheaper and even if it runs slow, this is a right proper smartphone with full access to Android for just over two notes!
This is probably the cheapest new smartphone with a year's guarantee available from a respected UK seller at the moment.

Takes a microSIM according to the manual here, but see post 17 - Geemac has this phone and confirms it takes a standard SIM:

vodafone.com/con…pdf

GSM Arena on the other hand says it's a miniSIM:
gsmarena.com/vod…php

However these YouTube reviews suggest a full fat SIM:

I'm receiving mine next week and will also confirm.
