Vodafone have been a big supporter of Android, currently stocking the HTC Desire, HTC Legend, HTC Tattoo and Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 plus the Google Nexus One soon, and in most stores these Android phones are more prominent than the iPhone that...

Vodafone 845

 

We first heard about the entry-level Vodafone 845 AKA 'Huawei Joy' in March of 2010 with some nice specs, in April more pics were leaked showing the actual device & then in May this beauty was officially announced and expected to be launched late May.

Branded for Vodafone, the 845 will actually be manufactured by Huawei as the Huawei Joy. That of course opens the door for other carriers to pick up the “Huawei Joy” or offer their own branding, but Voda may have an exclusive on this – we'll see!

Vodafone 845 review

 

Android 2.1 stuffed in a budget package

Android 2.1 OS ; Huge array of functionality ; Decent UI ; Google Maps Navigation ; Small package

Slow processor ; Buggy apps ; Low screen resolution ; Resistive touchscreen ; Difficult keyboard ; Vodafone web services ; Limited internal storage ; Poor camera

We've picked up the new Vodafone 845, the budget Android handset that hasn't been examined in detail anywhere else, so this Vodafone 845 review is your first chance to see a definitive verdict.

Vodafone's first own-branded Android handset has a rock bottom price tag, but is it any good?

A great budget Android smartphone with limitless home screen customisation, the 845 has all the features of a more expensive smartphone - except a larger screen

In an attempt to please the masses, Vodafone has started selling the affordable and app-friendly 845. Designed and made by Huawei, the 845 is a frill-less Android handset that boasts a touchscreen and…

Great price, subtle looks and decent interface

You won't find many phones at this price with such a decent set of

The touch screen does little to impress and the camera is pretty mediocre

You won’t find many phones at this price with such a decent set of specs, and the 845’s small size is a bonus. But the screen lets it down

Vodafone - 845

 

An Android based handset on contract for £15 a month is quite a lure, and Vodafone has precisely that offering on its books with the own-branded Vodafone 845. This is a small handset, following the trend ...

The low cost of the Vodafone 845 might be alluring, but there are a couple of serious let-downs with this phone. The poor screen responsiveness is one, a less than great camera is another. Choose this handset and you won't see Android at its best.

Vodafone 845

 

Review Vodafone's 845 is right on trend as it is a small format Android handset. Sony Ericsson's tiny Xperia X10 Mini - reviewed here [1] - and X10 Mini Pro have both had a surprisingly good reception, and Vodafone clearly thinks there's something in...

It would be easy to dismiss the Vodafone 845 as a mediocre handset which simply doesn’t do Android justice and leave it at that.
