This has been posted in the past but it's now at its cheapest. £89 plus a £10 top-up so just £99 in total. Such an amazing phone for the money. Without getting phones imported you'd be hard pressed to find a better phone for under £100.

Voted hot because it's not an iPhone

Less than £2 on eBay and code provided in less than a couple of hours, so yes... :-)

Voted hot because it is and OP included the topup in the price

Had mine for well over a year and its been faultless so far, lovely screen, fairly quick and the camera is ok, I really can't see why I would pay over 5 times this amount for a phone that would be not 5 times as good!!

Headphone socket and touch screen both failed on mine after 7 months, just received a refund from tesco.

i have one as a back up phone and I'm using as we speak. mine is buggy as hell and its around 10 months old. had to reset on several occasions and i honestly wouldn't pay half of this if i had the chance. not voted either way.

Bit big in the pocket but if you don't mind this it is a great phone for the money, superb pay as you go phone.

Should be lower than this now

Great phone. Been using mine for nearly a year now and bought for £99 then (no top up) so would also have expected it to be slightly lower. Not had any issues with it. Absolutely no need to pay over a ton these days for a phone. Easy to unlock, cost me about £1.60 and now using on three network.

Using one now got two brill phones.

Like the others, had mine for a year now and paid £99 for it. IMO, this phone should have dropped more by now.

Cost me £1.29 to unlock. Using it on 3 now.

Was a good phone when I bought it in July 2015, but they're not updating it anymore by the look of it, so cannot recommend you buy it - nor the smart ultra 7 - as they only update it for 1yr. Not bad as a stop gap phone.

I've had this since it launched but the lack of Android updates is killer.

Great phone had no problems after a year fast and great camera better specs than iPhone 6 for £99 its ridiculous. These are made by ZTE who did the blade phones.

From what I can understand from the Vodafone website "All phones, except iPhones, come with a 2 year warranty" so you've got peace of mind if anything goes wrong.

Brilliant phone, I've had it for a year almost and have been happy with it but the camera is pretty bad, especially in low light settings. Camera spec looks good but it's not compared to other phones, if a camera is a big deal to you, I'd avoid this phone.

Not sure why some sites don't mention RAM as it's kind of relevant. Anyway, if anyone's wondering it has 2GB.

Still using mine after a year but the camera really is mediocre at best.

Great for the money. Wife's had it for around a year. As others gave said, negatives are the camera, lack of updates and glue(?) melting round the edge of the screen causing distracting blots over the display.

My daughters phone also has a glue issue around the edges of the screen, anyone else had this repaired? I ask as I am expecting issues with the Vodafone cs team.

So the conclusion that I'm making based on comments is this phone is either a piece of total c rap, or awesome...

just a bit of a warning, it's a quite a big phone even for a 5.5 inch screen as it has big bezels, also the cpu is a bit long in the tooth now

You know what that say about opinions.
Just like @55holes, everyone has one
oO

I have it now for about 6 months and for the money it is a fantastic phone. Get it now, that's my opinion

Bought this for my son a year ago and it has been a great phone. I'm surprised it has not dropped more in price but were it not for the emergence of some quality Chinese imports it would still be one of the goto budget phones. Yes the camera is not the greatest and the CPU is aging but for 89 quid have some heat.

this phone is all about value. if you have another +150 pounds to spends, look for another deal, but if you only have 100 pounds then this is the best you will get for it by far

​isn't that always the way on here?

Like others, had mine for a year and no complaints at all. Also worth noting that the battery is good, easily get a full day of heavy usage out of mine.

I've had mine for a year now. Nothing but praise. Rock solid, reliable and great battery life. Such good value.

If you get a pay as you sim with Vodafone and are willing to wait 30 days after activation, the unlock will be for free.

Had this phone for over s year. Happy with it apart from the lack of an Android update to 6.0 For this reason I'll probably get a Moto G next time.

Shame about the bloatware

Shame about the bloatware



​What bloatware? You can delete 99% of the Vodafone stuff on there and disable the rest. There's not much to start with anyway.

Good phone Ive had mine over a year with no troubles, it pretty much runs anything i through at it.
One Big Downside to This Phone tho is that the Camera isn't Great in low light its awful

I had this problem, sent it off for repair under Vodafone warranty, they couldn't fix it so gave me a new one. Apparantly it's caused by the phone directly being in the sun too long. To be fair, it happened to me when we had that hot weather in July and my phone was in the sun alot.
