Got it for my sister (she killed her Galaxy Nexus sadly).
Yes it is worse than the GN, but this phone does the job for listening music and Whatsapp, it was just 24,50 euro in a Vodafone shop, oddly enough simlock free.
I am a pensioner and I love this phone. It is simple to work, battery lasts for ages and the manual is much better than all the silly little books you get. Thanks Vodafone.
i bought my phone 3 days ago, there is a bit of lag here and there, when is much hapening at the same time, but other than that, for the price, i pay 59.90 euro, it´s well built and i have no problems at all with it. there are games that is not supose to run on the phone capabilities, and i´m impress with the performance for a budget phone. i like im enough.
the screen went blank when i got home and i havent had it for 1year yet and now i cant see whos calling me or txtn Also it hasnt even been dropped or scratched YET!!!!
bought this phone so my wife could get a signal in our flat it had to be 3g only so it could connect to a vodaphone sure signal box
but without a manual we have had problems as we only wanted to use basic phone uses not for net at all thank god i found the manual on here as adding ringtones etc to personalize contacts is crap as the touch screen either wont move due to to light or to hard contact if only there was a 3g phone with normal buttons and settings but all shops say no there aint but some of us oldies and disabled cant use these new phones but as i said we had to as after 7 years of no phone signal we had to do something
How do you remove or even move the Google search widget on the home screen? How do you multitask or show all running apps?
The installed bluetooth isn't Bluetooth Smart apparently, it's not compatible with a piece of scanning software, despite being listed as 4.1. The Android version is compatible (why I bought it).
barracuda, 21 Dec 2015Can someone please tell me how to delete contacts and why is it so hard to save number under t... moreHi Barracuda,
To delete a contact from your phone's Contacts list do the following:
1) Open the Contacts app
2) Scroll to the entry that you want to delete
3) Select the person's name, not their picture/icon. This will bring up a panel showing all of that person's details (phone numbers, eMail, street address etc.).
4) Select the phone's Menu button. IMPORTANT: This is the right-most button of the three printed buttons at the bottom of the phone, and which looks like an empty square. Selecting this button will cause a pop-up menu to appear.
5) Select Delete from the pop-up menu. You will then be asked to confirm that this entry should be deleted.
I hope that this helps.
angry user, 30 Dec 2015this battery doesn't last for more than 2 hours and its not a user friendly fone,its crap reallyHi Angry User,
I suspect that if you are not getting more than 2-hours running time from a 100% charged phone, the battery may be faulty and you should return the unit to whoever you purchased it from. If after charging for a few hours and not doing anything with the phone, just letting it charge, the phone does not show 100% in the top right hand corner of the screen, there is either a problem with the battery or the wall socket supplying the power. Try charging the phone on someone else's cable and wall socket and see if that makes a difference.
I reckon that the Smart First 6 is a pretty good, entry level phone for its price. As for whether it is user-friendly or not, a lot of that is down to the Android operating system. If this is your first Android device it may take a few days to get used to. Try and find someone else with an Android phone and look for help there, that is what I did.
I hope that this helps.

You can download the English version of the manual for this phone (Vodafone Smart first 6) as a .pdf from:
In the past when these manuals have been distributed with the boxed phone they have been so small that they are hardly readable without a magnifying glass, so the .pdf ends up as a better option.
I hope that this might help you recover your phone from the Christmas dustbin.......

No Manual for a first time Smart phone... how ridiculous.... and battery life is CRAP. This Vodafone will be in the bin after Christmas.....
If you need help with android stuff go to XDA developers. Im suprised you need help since it is really the most basic smartphone out there (there are 3 buttons "hmm how to turn on"), but XDA developers and just some google searching will help a lot
