T-Mobile Vivacity review


It's a little tacky to look at and hold, but this budget smartphone has a decent specification and the 480x800 screen is great

The front-facing camera is a different story, however: shots resembled the work of an impressionist painter, and it's not recognised by Skype so you can't use it to make video calls. A battery life of just less than seven hours when playing movies is...

T-Mobile Vivacity Review: In Depth


The T-Mobile Vivacity (actually made by ZTE) is an attractively priced touchscreen phone that looks a lot like an Apple iPhone 4. Available for a fraction of the price of an Apple phone, the Vivacity…

Very low price ; Compact design ; Looks a lot like an iPhone 4

Good range of features for budget price, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread,5 megapixel camera

Screen could be more sensitive, casing feels a bit cheap

Taking the budget phone to a new level

With the performance of a high-end smartphone from little over a year ago, £100 is a great deal. It's nicer than the similarly specified Orange San Francisco II too

T-Mobile Vivacity


The T-Mobile Vivacity is the network's first bash at the 'high-end' Android market, and a fuchsia-branded version of the Orange San Francisco 2. Can the handset prove as popular as its Everything Everywhere partner's debut San Francisco handset, or is...

Overall, we were pretty impressed with the T-Mobile Vivacity. For 100 quid you'll struggle to find another phone with a 5MP camera and capacitive touchscreen, and it's a fantastic phone for smartphone newbies. However, if you're willing to spend more...

T-Mobile Vivacity Review


The T-Mobile Vivacity is a good-looking iPhone 4 clone, which is

The look of an iPhone 4 at a quarter of the price; good camera with some decent editing options; clarity and brightness from the WVGA display

Body is rather lightweight; onscreen keyboard is sluggish in use
