Vodafone Smart III review - Pocket-lint

 

There's enough power here for most people, although HD video playback and very high-end gaming are not an option. Everything else is solid and well put

Cheap, uncomplicated, decent design, well-aimed for its market

Screen not that bright, not that powerful, limited internal storage

For £90 there's really not a lot here to dislike. As always with cheaper camera phones, the megapixel count is irrelevant and the photos always look a bit blurred and lack fine detail. The Smart is far from the worst offender here though, and as always...

Vodafone Smart 3

 

A £90 network branded phone that can run with the big names

Customisable design ; Good screen for a budget phone ; Value for money

Poor call quality ; A bit plasticy ; Slightly sluggish 1GHz CPU

For all its faults, though, the Vodafone Smart 3’s 233 pixels-per-inch image density stands out from the crowd. Text and graphics are still noticeably hazy at their edges and images are far from pin-sharp, but the improvement over the likes of the...

Vodafone Smart III review

 

We've seen Vodafone's bargain basement Smart Mini and now it'sthe turn of its big brother, the Smart III, with a bigger screenand better camera, though the processor doesn't seem to have beenbeefed up to cope with the extra demands.

For £35 more than the Vodafone Smart Mini you get a better cameraand a bigger, sharper screen, though the processor seems to bepretty much the same and a bit on the slow side. There are a fewextra Vodafone features too, making The Smart III a pretty...

Vodafone Smart III

 

Always willing to help when I am on the look-out for a product to review, Vodafone's PR agency sent me a couple of handsets on which one is the subject of this next review.

My first car, purchased a little over 20 years ago, cost £600 second hand. Nowadays this is the price being asked by some companies for one of their smartphone devices that could quickly build up additional costs at a rate that can make your eyes...

Review: Vodafone Smart III

 

I've been using the Vodafone Smart III for a little over a week now, and below is my full review, but the short version is that if you have a budget of less than £100, or are looking to dip y…

Vodafone Smart III – First thoughts

 

I have always had an Android phone, but being the gadget freak that I am, it has tended to be at the top end of what's available. So I was interested to see how this low cost model from Vodaf…

The Vodafone Smart III (aka Alcatel 975) is an entry level Android smartphone with an eye on those who want something a little different; something fun, functional and funky (you can have that one, Apple, if you're after a tag-line [...

Vodafone Smart III

 

While Samsung, HTC and Apple are slugging it out with their pricey flagship super phones, there's another battle raging: the one to be crowned king of the affordable smartphones - low price mobiles with similar software but just a few corners cut here...

If you’re already a loyal Vodafone customer, and you’re looking for a cheap option that still packs plenty of apps, the Vodafone Smart III is certainly a great choice, especially on Pay As You Go, so you don’t tie yourself down to a lengthy two year...
