Vodafone Smart III review

 

The Vodafone Smart III - sometimes called the Vodafone Smart III 975 - is a handset that really knows its audience. Its first trick is that it's cheap. At £90 it's one of the cheapest Android handsets you can buy, and for pay-as-you-go users, it's...

Cheap, uncomplicated, decent design, well-aimed for its market

Screen not that bright, not that powerful, limited internal storage

For £90 there's really not a lot here to dislike. As always with cheaper camera phones, the megapixel count is irrelevant and the photos always look a bit blurred and lack fine detail. The Smart is far from the worst offender here though, and as always...

Vodafone Smart III review

 

A cheap Android phone with only a few compromises

The Vodafone Smart III has some flaws, notably its occasionally slow web browsing and slightly unresponsive screen, but we like its design and camera. It's a competent Android phone at a good price, but we found the ZTE Blade III, which is £80 on...

Not bad for £70, but it's slow and isn't good for viewing media

Vodafone Smart II V860

 

An Android smartphone with a rock-bottom price.

Low price tag, Decent build quality, Some useful additional Vodafone widgets

Poor camera, Below par battery life, Slightly sluggish performance

Vodafone Smart III review

 

We've seen Vodafone's bargain basement Smart Mini and now it'sthe turn of its big brother, the Smart III, with a bigger screenand better camera, though the processor doesn't seem to have beenbeefed up to cope with the extra demands.

For £35 more than the Vodafone Smart Mini you get a better cameraand a bigger, sharper screen, though the processor seems to bepretty much the same and a bit on the slow side. There are a fewextra Vodafone features too, making The Smart III a pretty...

Always willing to help when I am on the look-out for a product to review, Vodafone's PR agency sent me a couple of handsets on which one is the subject of this next review.

My first car, purchased a little over 20 years ago, cost £600 second hand. Nowadays this is the price being asked by some companies for one of their smartphone devices that could quickly build up additional costs at a rate that can make your eyes...

Vodafone Smart III Android phone - Initial Impressions

 

The Vodafone Smart III (aka Alcatel 975) is an entry level Android smartphone with an eye on those who want something a little different; something fun, functional and funky (you can have that one, Apple, if you're after a tag-line [...

My current devices are: Oppo Find 5, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Ativ S and a Huawei G300.

Sturdy construction, pocketable dimensions, higher resolution display than rivals, handy Data Management app

Not the best performing budget CPU, rather average camera performance, touchscreen prone to displaying glare plus a real fingerprint magnet

Vodacom’s Smart II is a good all-round performer. This smartphone may not sport the fastest CPU in the budget range, but it does feature an impressive build quality for this price range, and one of the best touchscreens (glare notwithstanding) in this...

A Vodafone Smartphone : Vodafone Smart II

 

It was not so long ago that smartphones were classified as high-end devices with prices to match; now we are seeing budget offerings entering the market.

Generally when a handset arrives from Vodafone to be reviewed, it is a model from one of the major manufacturers of telephonic devices such as RIM, Samsung or HTC. However, in the case of the Smart II, this handset proudly bore the Vodafone name and...

The Smart II is tiny, attractive and the top sub-$200 smartphone we've seen to date.
