Vodafone Smart Platinum 7


Carrier-specific smartphones don't usually make significant waves in the world of mobiles. They're normally pretty dull-looking phones with low-end components that aim to entice buyers with low upfront costs and monthly contracts.

Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 review


When going for gold just isn't enough - only Platinum will do

Big screen that's super-sharp ; Fab speakers ; High-end build ; Cracking value

Camera results are mid-range fodder ; Finger scanner could be faster ; Locked to Vodafone

High-end design at a mid-range price, but there’s stiff competition for a bargain hunter’s pounds

Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 review


Vodafone goes high-spec

Super screen ; Great all-round performance ; Fantastic price

Design not completely harmonious ; It's locked to Vodafone (obviously) ; Poor Vodafone bloatware apps

Vodafone has delivered on its promise of a premium smartphone experience for a less-than-premium price. It might not be up there with the top ranks in any one area, but it's far closer than the mid-range also-rans where it really matters.

Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 Review: In Depth


Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 review: Vodafone's amassed a respectable roster of affordable own-brand handsets with premium touches, but the new Smart Platinum 7 is more...

Excellent value for money ; Clean user experience ; Premium design ; Stunning display ; Fast performance

Speaker grilles trap dirt ; Camera could be better ; Fingerprint magnet ; Carrier locked ; Low grip body

Whether you know it as the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7, the Pro 7 or the Alcatel Idol 4S (which shares almost all of the same DNA), this is a great smartphone, and undoubtedly Vodafone’s best effort to date..

Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 review - taking on the OnePlus 3


It's fast, has a great screen and excellent battery life, but the Smart Platinum 7's camera just falls short of perfection

If you're looking for a contract on Vodafone then things are less clear-cut. The excellent LG G5 is a strong alternative with similar contracts costing around £4 more per month than those for the Smart Platinum 7. It's a superior handset for the money...

Smart Platinum 7 : Vodafone Smart Platinum 7


Adding to its own brand range of handsets, Vodafone has released the Smart platinum 7 smartphone.

The Vodafone Smart platinum 7 is, as its titles states, a smart looking handset that fits comfortably in the hand. Generally there was a smooth transition between apps although I was not too thrilled by the fuzziness that appeared when changing between...

Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 review


The network own-brand phone that looks surprisingly luscious

Surprisingly sleek and sturdy; Lengthy battery life; Fast and accurate fingerprint reader; Top quality screen

Even better phones are available at around the same price or less; Bundled nagware

A surprisingly excellent own-brand phone that holds its own against big name smartphones

Consumer review (

It is a very nice phone and I am glad I bought it.


Before I used to have the phone down from this - the Vodafone smart ultra 6 - and that was really good so now that I bought the slightly improved one, I'm glad its paid off as a better phone that I saved money in buying. Its looks good and has fast...
