Expert review by: Ross Catanzariti (goodgearguide.com.au)

Vodafone 1210 (VDA IV)

 

Designed primarily for mobile email and data use, Vodafone has launched its first 'own label' smart phone in Australia. Manufactured, but not branded ...

Price, Good display, Smart dialling feature, Can handle multimedia, Micro SD card slot

No Wi-Fi or other advanced features, No digital camera, Joystick, Can't edit Office documents, Start up is a little slow

The Vodafone 1210 is an excellent and cost effective way to dive into the world of mobile email. It doesn't offer the same bells and whistles as most other smart phones on the market, but it is considerably cheaper than devices with similar functionality.

Want a Blackberry, but can't stretch the business budget to afford one? Vodafone's 1210 might suit your needs, but you'll need to put up with a lot of compromises along the way.

Excellent battery life ; Entry level mobile email client ; Mobile Opera works very well

TXT speak isn't email ; Dull design ; Imprecise joystick control

With any budget item there are compromises to be accepted and the Vodafone 1210 arguably falls on the wrong side of those compromises. It's a perfectly usable phone, good for browsing and checking work documents, but when it comes to anything more than...

Vodafone 1210

 

Apart from one issue I rate this handset quite well. For what it is, the functionality is hard to beat.

A neat package for an 'everyday' handset user who would like a bit of extra added punch. A good alternative to the fully fledged PDA handsets

This is my only issue; I purchased the handset unlocked but branded as Vodafone. This model is not listed on my home network's support page to 'sms' the gprs settings and I am unfortunately contracted to a Reseller with my SIM. My Reseller bluntly...

I paid $150 for this from Vodafone - run out stock. for the price, the phone is fantastic. considering any other prepaid phone is roughly the same, for the price this tops it all.

Cheap - Reliable - Great contacts options - great microSD card option to store gigabytes of music to listen to on the go

is a bit slow here and there, but no major problems what so ever

To follow on from my previous comments of this disaster of a phone, after almost 3 months of it being returned for repairs, Vodafone have finally offered a credit on it.

Not too many after playing with the 6120 custom

Bad repair service, phone keeps failing ; I was happy to move on

Just good, not excelent.

Smartphone. easy to find contacts if you have 1000. easy to get your emails ; You can charge with any miniusb cable, from usb ports

One of the mediocre smartphone ; Bad battery life (daily charge)

Vodafone 1210

 

I have had my 1210 for four weeks now and think it is brilliant for the price. At almost half the price of other candy bar smartphones the only thing it is missing is some sort of WLAN connection.

size, battery life, bang for buck

no WLAN but for the price who cares, the big thing is no protective case. Vodafone really need to get there act together on the case

Vodafone 1210

 

This phone is pretty average, it does have some great features but if you're looking for a smart phone this definitely isn't the one you're looking for.

Battery does last for a long time ; Fairly good operating system

Expensive for what's given ; Joystick is a hassle
