Expert review by: Phil Lattimore (

Vodafone 533 Catwalk Collection review


In these credit-crunched times, a cheap and easy to use mobile seems like an appealing offer

Low price ; Bright, colourful sliderphone design ; Decent music player performance ; MicroSD cards supported ; Camera ; Easy to use ; FM radio ; Solid performance

Camera quality very limited ; Video capture quality poor ; Only 8MB of onboard memory ; No 3G ; Limited set of features ; Multi-connector positioning on side

Budget sliderphone gets a Catwalk makeover, delivering a low spec but good value package

Vodafone 533


Looks good, cheap

Keys are tricky to press ; Small memory ; Horrible ring tones - why oh why was there no simple ring? I don't want something hideous, anti-social "tune

Vodafone 533


Looks quite good and is light enough to carry in any pocket, and would be compact enough to put in a ladies purse

The preloaded sounds, the irritating and convoluted contact inputting features, the complicated route to accessing any feature e.g. to change the sound, the volume, etc

Vodafone 533


The phone looks good and more expensive than it was

The phone lacked some basic software such as an MP3 player and video player

Vodafone 533


It looks nice, and very good camera quality

Everything... VERY SLOW... hardly any time for filming... its a very simple/boring phone. Not really what I wanted. And the back is very stiff to get off, I nearly snapped it
