Looks really good for the price. Heat.
The Vodafone branded fones are pretty good. We got 2 in our household & Vodafone guarantee is excellent
I thought phones now had to be sold unlocked?
Exterior looks good but basic processor. I guess for price not bad but probablybetter options available?

How does this compare to G6 Play at £119?
Actually 109.99 as says this price with £10 in the description?

Wrong, if you go via Fastrack and pay online, it won't add any topup- read my description

Guarantee may be good though getting VF to understand the guarantee and act on it is not so good IME. They tried telling me the warranty was one year then took weeks (and a fair effort) to replace the phone(had a known and documented issue).
Specs look good and NFC
The title says it is a 16gb and in the details it says 32gb..... Anyone know which one it is?

I have had 4 of the Ultra 6 for 2 years on contract and 4 of the Smart V8 for 18 months on contract and apart from the problems with negotiating a new contract and getting the phones delivered the phones have not missed a beat and we have not been worried about replacing them with newer models, so the X9 would be a good replacement if one goes bang!

Argos is messy about title description as usual, it is 32GB internal memory, check Vodafone site
It's 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage memory not ROM

The 450 is an amazingly capable little processor. At least from what I've seen on the Redmi 5 but that does only have a 720 screen instead of a 1080
If I was buying a phone to use on the Vodafone network, I'd get the Redmi Note 5 advertised the other day for £121 delivered from AliExpress or one of those Chinese retailers. 4GB RAM/64GB storage, decent camera and a Snapdragon 636 processor.

No band 20 - but I believe that's only a problem for 4G on O2.
Bought this for my dad at Xmas and have to say it's an awesome phone
Really good phone, me and the misses both have one, does anybody know where to get a case from? Most of the eBay and Amazon ones seem to be from China and I dont want to wait 30days for delivery!

Yes.

Just picked one up, Thanks OP

Slightly worrying the lack of code providers for this model, but understandable considering how recent it is, hope it unlocks ok.
Have a good opinion of Voda handsets, ZTE basically.
I've got a Smart Platinum 7 for dad, good thing about using these Vodafone handsets with their sim cards is you get all network features such as WiFi calling and VoIP although very annoying as it has a permanent notification for WiFi calling.

Yes is showing as sold now, sorry
Picked up one of these as a work phone. Its very similar to a standard Moto G6 but with a better design, great for £100.

Got one today and it's very impressive, I have an Xperia and iPhone and this is just as good
Had this phone for over a month. Great battery life, good screen, no lag or crashing and is responsive. Got unlock off ebay for £2.50. Tried a cheaper seller on eBay first and refunded me after 3 days saying he couldn't get the code. Slightly dearer seller has it to me in 2 hrs. Got case, well rubber sleeve, on eBay from China for under 2 quid and arrived in 10 days and is very good. Only down side is the native camera app. Camera itself is pretty decent, not outstanding, but the functionality let's it down. Worth noting that it is only 2.4 for WiFi. Good phone for the money.

I've noticed the camera is fairly poor too, if you just point and shoot but if you take time to set it up then it's good. what app are you using instead would be tempted to have a look myself, also interested in which case you brought?

Bought case from this seller. Tried a few camera apps from playstore but none any better than the app on the phone. Tempted to root and install Google camera but that brings other problems with it.
