T-Mobile Vivacity review


There are lots of different cars to choose from, which is good, because if the only car you could buy was a Porsche, then not that many people would be able to afford cars. And so the same is true with phones. The best phones - your high-end Android...

Cheap, decent camera, sturdy and compact design, good battery life

Looks like a low-rent iPhone, loves fingerprints and wants as many of them on its surface as possible

This really isn't a bad little phone. It is made even more attractive by T-Mobile's offer of six months free Internet, and a £10 top-up. We have to say, Orange's San Francisco II also has more features because it has HD voice and two for one films on a...

T-Mobile Vivacity review


There's no denying that for its latest budget Android smartphone, T-Mobile has turned on the style. It's not hard to see where it got its inspiration from, with the squared-off body, glossy black rear and thing metal strip more than a little...

It's a little tacky to look at and hold, but this budget smartphone has a decent specification and the 480x800 screen is great

T-Mobile Vivacity review


For a budget Android phone, you can't get much better than the T-Mobile Vivacity. It's got a lovely bright screen, a dashing, if not completely original, design and enjoys all the benefits of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Simple operation ; Android 2.3 Gingerbread ; Decent screen ; Looks more expensive than it is

Weak processor ; Juddery scrolling

We're not sure if we could describe the Vivacity as being "vivacious" exactly, but if you're looking for a budget Android phone, you can't go far wrong with this little blower. It's handsome, simple to use and offers all the delicious functionality of...

T-Mobile Vivacity Review: In Depth


"10/10 due to great value for the money. Has a good clear responsive capacitive touchscreen. The music player sounds great if you add a free android equalizer, has a 3.5mm output and Bluetooth as well (works fine). The camera is more than adequate for...

Very low price ; Compact design ; Looks a lot like an iPhone 4

Not the best camera ; Sometimes difficult to text on ; No Flash support

Our only big gripe is that texting on the T-Mobile Vivacity feels cramped and is user-unfriendly. That is, if you stick with the standard keyboard. We’d advise you download a better one from the Android Market. Otherwise, the T-Mobile Vivacity...

T-Mobile Vivacity


A phone from a service provider, not I think unique but certainly most seem to come from third party companies, often a phone – for a period anyway – are only available from a single provider, here the Vivacity from T-Mobile .

T-Mobile Vivacity review


At least part of the phenomenal success of Google's Androidoperating system is due to its versatility. Unlike Apple's iOS orthe latest mobile incarnation of Windows, it's available for phonesat all price ranges, from the extreme high end whence...

Good range of features for budget price, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread,5 megapixel camera

Screen could be more sensitive, casing feels a bit cheap

The T-Mobile Vivacity is a well-equipped budget Android with abetter than expected camera and a good range of features. Thescreen could have been a bit more responsive, but otherwise, it's abargain.

T-Mobile Vivacity


Taking the budget phone to a new level

With the performance of a high-end smartphone from little over a year ago, £100 is a great deal. It's nicer than the similarly specified Orange San Francisco II too

T-Mobile Vivacity


The T-Mobile Vivacity is the network's first bash at the 'high-end' Android market, and a fuchsia-branded version of the Orange San Francisco 2. Can the handset prove as popular as its Everything Everywhere partner's debut San Francisco handset, or is...

Overall, we were pretty impressed with the T-Mobile Vivacity. For 100 quid you'll struggle to find another phone with a 5MP camera and capacitive touchscreen, and it's a fantastic phone for smartphone newbies. However, if you're willing to spend more...

T-Mobile Vivacity Review


The T-Mobile Vivacity is a good-looking iPhone 4 clone, which is

The look of an iPhone 4 at a quarter of the price; good camera with some decent editing options; clarity and brightness from the WVGA display

Body is rather lightweight; onscreen keyboard is sluggish in use
