Vodafone 858 Smart review


Although it's well priced, the Smart's screen is cramped, its processor is slow and it lacks storage space for apps. Samsung's Galaxy Fit is better value

The Vodafone 858 is a good starter smartphone.


The Vodafone 858 is an entry - level smartphone which can be bought at lower and lower prices every year. However, it is not a flimsy or low quality product. Mine has survived falling into a stream, being sat on, slept on, and thrown around by idiots...

I've used quite a few touch mobile phones and have never had as many problems, its literally taking me 20 minutes to type a text that with previous mobiles would take 2 minutes. The mobile picks out the letter to the left or right of the one I want!
