Absolutely amazing phone, speakers are beautiful for a phone, screen is quick and very responsive, excellent ram and m memory and octocore processor, gets a but warm with use liked most do now. I cannot fault this phone!!
@Leandro, I had the exact same doubts being a Vodafone Viva client. I chose this one for it's superior AMOLED screen! The P9 Lite will have better support in the future, being a Huawei, and it's cheaper using the Vodafone points. It's also slightly smaller which I also prefer.
Again, the only reason I took the Platinum was due to the AMOLED. I had an Ultra 6 and the Platinum is considerably better
what is the lens type of the 16gb camera ? is it sony , if yes wich one ?
No lags with the GPS at all. Sometimes it loses signal for a small period. What you fo have to do is Force Stop the app after about 2 hours of intensive use, it seems it fills some buffer or whatever.
BTW I'm also in Portugal
Does anyone here play pokemon go wiht Vodafone Smart Platinum7
Does it run well? Any lags with the GPS?
Anyone know a place to get an unlock code for this?I have checked ebay but there is nothing. i dont want to wait 30 days for vodafone to unlock it haha
Bartaz, 03 Aug 2016Do you think it is worth getting this or is there any other similar phones that are cheaper?Depends what you're looking for and where you live. You can get Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 with the same specs cheaper than the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 but if you live in the UK and want to take advantage of 4G network that can be a little problem because Xiaomi phones don't support LTE band 20 (800 Mhz). If you want a good multimedia device with front facing speakers then the Vodafone SP7 is the best value when we consider closest new competitors: Alcatel Idol 4S which is a very similar but more expensive device and ZTE Axon 7 which is more powerful and more expensive as well but hard to get as for now. Also you can get last year's but still overpriced HTC M9. Considering all above I have chosen and ordered Vodafone SP7 today. Currently I'm waiting for the delivery ;) And don't worry about a simlock. Vodafone can unlock it for free if you apply for it on their website.
Do you think it is worth getting this or is there any other similar phones that are cheaper?
Gadgetguru97, 19 Jun 2016Yes but you cannot buy the Alcatel idol 4s as it is the Vodafone smart platinum 7. That's why ... moreAlcatel's product has been released and you can buy it same as the vodafone. They are basically the same phone
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2016It is better than Idol 4s because it has fingerprint but Idol 4 doesn't.The idol 4s does have a fingerprint reader. This phone is virtually the exact same as the idol 4s. They both even come with VR headsets.
Dean, 27 Jun 2016I am a Vodafone employee who has been extensively playing around and testing the device and I ... moreis there any unlocked version (non-contract) or international edition of this phone? and does it available with dual sim version? but I don't want alcatel version :)
Cata, 04 Jul 2016Does anyone know if this phone is compatible with Google Cardboard VR?">
