In the not too distant past we used to look at £100 Android phones and highlight the fact that the CPU wasn’t that fast, the screen wasn’t that big and they were probably only suited to those who were looking for a straight replacement for an old feature phone. Now, a £100 Android phone will deliver admirable performance with a good screen and a premium design.
So today a phone with a 3.5″ 320×480 pixel screen will cost just £25. Yes. £25. Visit Vodafone to grab the Smart First 7 on Pay as you Go. As I mentioned before, this is a phone that would’ve cost £100 a year or two ago, So you can expect a 2 megapixel camera and – according to the back of the box – there’s no 4G. You get WiFi, 3G, 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card for more storage though.
Inside it’s powered by a 1.3GHz “Spreadtrum” processor (no, me either, but you can get more info on the CPU here) which, as you’ll see in a moment, is a bit laggy.
So, onto the video then, and a tour around the setup of the Vodafone Smart First 7..
