Vodafone 555 Blue Review

 

The Vodafone Blue is aimed at a very specific audience - the 'social networking addicted' kids! This surely isn't a smartphone, but does three things very well - calls, messages and Facebook. Basic looks and build quality, and the hardware specs aren't...

Affordable price for the demographic it is aimed at, Facebook integrated quite well

No Wi-Fi or 3G

Vodafone 555 Facebook Phone hits UK

 

Vodafone UK has unveiled the Vodafone 555 Facebook mobile phone, which coems with a dedicated Facebook button. This isn't the first time we have seen a phone tailor-made for Facebook buffs or avid users of social networking media. The candy bar phone...

Vodafone 555 Blue Facebook Phone

 

Dubbed as another Facebook phone, like HTC's ChaCha, the Vodafone Blue 555 seems to be designed to cater to just the hardcore FB fans and no one else. Being far more affordable than HTC's

Vodafone 555 Blue - Pocket-lint

 

The Vodafone 555 Blue is the latest Facebook phone to hit the market. But when we say market, we don't just mean the markets here in the UK. Oh no, Vodafone

Cheap, decent build quality, Facebook-tastic

Slow, no 3G or Wi-Fi, lack of apps

When Pocket-lint went to the launch of the 555 it was clear that much of Vodafone's market research was done in emerging markets for the mobile industry, such as India and South Africa – where Facebook is high on the agenda for young people, but where...

Vodafone 555 Blue review

 

Keeping you connected without phone contract commitments

Deep Facebook integration ; Excellent ease of navigation ; Cheap ; QWERTY keyboard ; Single LED camera flash

Slow connectivity speeds and no Wi-Fi ; 200Mhz processor ; Only a 2MP camera ; Navigating Facebook picture albums or watching videos are a lot of bother ; 2.4-inch screen

With social network-'addicted' teens and a global Facebook population greater than that of the United States, bringing out an affordable PAYG Facebook-integrated feature phone should be a sure bet, in theory. But then we also know that there are lies,...

The first thing to say about the Vodafone 555 Blue is that it's not blue at all, it's white. Actually the most important thing to say is that the 555 is

Vodafone 555

 

Can this cheap HTC ChaCha imitator do the Tango with the best Facebook phones? Not quite.

Physical Qwerty keyboard, Splits Facebook into multiple apps, Clear interface

Slow connectivity, Trackpad slows browsing further

Vodafone 555 Blue Review

 

Vodafone's 555 Blue may not be the first Facebook phone, and it's certain not to be the last, but it's the first to arrive without Android. This one is truly a Facebook phone; all the other phone…
