best budget smart phone ever - had it for 2 years and it never went wrong - safe FAM!!
Got that phone two years ago. It was good value for its money, having a 1080p screen, but as it turns out its not particularly reliable. I have started having issues with the touch screen - parts of it sometimes become unresponsive, usually the left-most quarter of the screen. The interface glitches sometimes, closing all apps constantly to the extend that it makes the phone unusable. Even though its a cheap phone, I expected more longevity from it.
Same problems as the others with the touch screen. It's so annoying.
Don't buy this phone.
started off as a great phone with a great camera, but after less than a year parts of the screen wouldn't work so some letters didn't work on my keyboard, and then two out of three of the main buttons on the bottom of the screen broke, so it quickly became very frustrating to use.
Oh dear me...part of touch screen failed after 10 months, preventing part of the keyboard working. Took it to Vodafone for repair, who examined the externals very closely and found NO damage (I always kept in a case covering back and front of phone) before sending for repair. Vodafone now tell me the fix is chargeable (£70+) despite still being well within warranty. This phone is built to a price, as are it's successors (Smart Ultra 7 and on). I wouldn't choose this phone or it's successors if I was buying again...specs good, great when it's working, but simply not robust enough for my real world use. My experience of Vodafone after sales service is worse than disappointing... A 4* phone, with Vodafone after sales customer service more like an abdication than a service

Did you manage to resolve your issue with network error as i seem to be receiving the same message
I recently purchased a smart ultra 6 and i am pretty happy with it.
I am experiencing a problem when attempting to update the Software (OS) to marshmallow; after downloading it via the software update window on the phone, the phone refuses to install and states a mismatch.
Did anyone encounter such a problem and how did you fix it?
My baseband is : P839V55B01
Kernel version: 3.10.49
Build number: VDF-995NB01-IT09b (I suppose the IT means Italy)
Does anyone know why Ultra 6 stops support selfie stick from March 17? I can't use my selfie stick any more.

Please can someone who has upgraded their Smart Ultra 6 to Marshmallow 6.0.1 tell me what the Total Space size is for the Internal Storage after the upgrade. Currently with 5.1.1 it's 11.16GB.
Tetenterre , 19 Feb 2017That must be why it has 'Made in China by ZTE' stamped on the back. :-) Steve corrected that statement.
It is of course the newer Smart Ultra 7 that is made by Alcatel (and is not as good).

There are some applications that use phone's internal memory as their default storage. Email services, and Whatsapp are the common ones, you may need to clear up the contents to free some more space.
Please note internal memory is not the RAM (currently goes up to max 4GB in high-end phones), it is the storage (usually comes with over 16GB space in new phones).
There is a Android 6.0 update. I received a notification today and updated my ultra 6 to marshmallow.

Surely I'm missing something - my phone is now constantly telling me I've no space yet my SD card is virtually empty. So angry as I got rid of my previous phone for this very reason and have had no bother at all with the smart ultra 6 til the last update!!
