My current phone has died and I was just looking for a cheap phone to tide me over until the Moto G6 is released. This was advertised on the shelf as £18 (down from £25). At the checkout it rang up at £5. No complaints from me!2932782.jpg

Bought this from voda for tenner as spare phone, unlocked on ebay for a pound or two. After I installed couple of basic apps, storage ran out of space. Phone is very slow, has only 512mb memory and 4gb storage where the most is used by os and I had a feeling I'll smash it against the wall few times. After day of use I decided to get my other spare phone repaired and never used this junk again. Don't waste your fiver. If this phone can be rooted and useless voda junk removed, then it might be usefull for short time. Root is not available sice release. Not voted.

Wow, that's insane. Does it only work with d
Vodafone and does it require some kind of contract?
Nice cop

Yeah as sold it is locked to Vodaphone but doesn’t require a contract. You can use an existing Vodaphone sim or get it unlocked

Doesn't require contract, needs to be unlocked
cheaply on ebay. But read my comment above before you buy.
I have this phone as a spare but I have gave it to my son now. It's so slow and sometimes it doesn't respond.
I bought mine £10 from argos without a top up. For £5 this is good
I bought one, gave up with it after a few days due to it calling people from my pocket when locked. They also sound very hollow and they are ever so light, so can't be very well built.

At a push, okay for an emergency bail out but not suitable for constant daily use, in my opinion.
Perfect for running an Android 'server' at home for apps like Tasker
Sell it forward to cex and profit.

Yes, my son’s the same. Hopefully just a teenage thing though.

Agreed. Yes, it may be insanely cheap, but that's not the same as being a bargain or value for money. Probably OK for calling and texting, but pretty useless as a smart phone. Just to add your comments, the screen is very small and the resolution is very low. I can only imagine what a horrible user experience you would get, even if your main phone was a Moto C or Moto E. By comparison those handsets are luxury. In the case of this Vodafone handset, it's a case of buy cheap, buy twice.
At last this phone is appropriately priced.
Any idea if the other clearance phones have been further discounted too?

I seem to recall the vodafone e8 being marked down to £28; is it now scanning lower?
You can get this phone unlocked for 99p on EBAY as well.
I dont use social media or anything. Only surf the net and have whatsapp so this would be ideal.

If I see this in my shop i will buy!

Hot deal
I have 3 of these, bought for the kids, storage is useless (they can really only have 1 game installed at a time), Whats app works fine, no front camera though. Only 3G support - I was going to use it as a cheap MiFi dongle, but it only supports 3G...
I "upgraded" them to an Alcatel - slightly better and has a front facing camera for Snap chat.
For a "glove compartment" phone you'll not do much worse and I doubt you'll be able to find anything cheaper (a new "old style" Nokia might be a better emergency phone as it'll have a better battery life at the sacrifice of smart features).
Heat added - thanks for sharing.
I completely agree with hukdealer, this is a completely useless and rubbish phone, their is no storage left to install app, so you have to a sd-card & the phone is slow as a snail. Terrible phone.
I can't find it
It is good as a one function device ie only as a mp3 player, or another.
But, if you want it to do more than one task at a time... then yoooouuuu wwwwiiilll nnnneed tttooo waaaiiittt.

Awful phone, I'm currently using it as broke my main phone. Slowest thing I've ever used, sometimes miss call as the screen consent come on fast enough to swipe and take call
A smackheads Giro goes faster than this phone. Awful!
