The phone is great, however after charging to 100% of battery, it can hardly go for 8 hours, is there a problem with may battery. I bought the phone last month.

big chance that this comment will be deleted because it's too ruthless but, I am so sick of Vodafone, not only they lack of unlimited mobile data, it's because they don't know how to make good budget phones. Since 2013, my experience with Vodafone's smart phones is a living hell, and since I got the Smart Turbo 7 or should I say the 'Dumb Slug 7', this phone takes the cake.
First off, the keyboard is a living hell. It glitches really bad, even the most precise touch and resetting won't help. My other smartphones may be slow and no longer work, but their keyboards are fine.
And there's something I don't get, is that this 5 inch phone only displays 480p resolution. The smart prime 6 can display 720p HD quite nicely.
Though this phone has 8GB internal storage, even if I have all my files on my SD card, the internal storage is 90% full and no files are even in there. Google Play always notifies me that I have no storage left.
The camera is bad, period.
Processing is awful, Pokemon Go won't open.
In conclusion, I have found the bottom of the barrel and I have lost respect to Vodafone and all their phones, I don't trust their quote unquote 'faster' smart N8 and all of their other phones. I'd rather switch to cheap chinese phones or go back to the Samsung C3050.
When incoming call it rings but cannot slide left to right as no button to do this
titch, 06 Jan 2017Ican not see how Vodafone can charge £11.00 more than Argos for the Vodafone turbo smart... moreYou can download the user manual here - https://www.vodafone.com/content/dam/group/devices/downloads/smartturbo7/VFD-500-UM-Eng.pdf

Adam, 17 Feb 2017Pretty rubbish phone, screen is terrible you have to have it directly facing you to see it pro... moreSounds like you haven't removed the protective blue plastic sheet from the screen. On the apps and crashing have you turned everything off you don't want with nothing left running in the back ground? If yes then you need to upgrade to probably a £200 plus phone.
I've had this phone since Christmas and it's working great. Good screen, great battery, only disappointment is it lacks NFC... But that's a minor problem for me.
I was worried about it being a Vodafone phone, but it is well made and it didn't need unlocking to work to the cheaper talk mobile network.
Great starter or second phone.
I hate the turbo7 its total rubbish. Motorola kindly gave us the moon tech. In the 60's this thing couldn't even download the clip. Rotten! Huawei p9 you're it!
I'm delighted with this smart phone- my first! Thank you Vodafone for giving it to me for cherry points. I'm gradually getting used to using it and it can do so much
For 49 GBP you can't go wrong. Seems quite well made and works perfectly well.
Pretty rubbish phone, screen is terrible you have to have it directly facing you to see it properly.. Dark parts of images are very hard to see. Scrolling is very slow, the precision of the touch screen is also bad. Its also pretty slow and force closes apps all the time, can't keep apps open without having to restart them and struggles to keep a few web pages open which is annoying. Definitely avoid and get something else. Cheap for a reason.
I have it, three days older in my possession but the big problem i have discovered is the poor battery. It takes long to charge and it stays for less than 6hrs
Ican not see how Vodafone can charge £11.00 more than Argos for the Vodafone turbo smart 7 and nothing to show how to used it.
