Bought it 5 months ago. It is worth the money, although the battery drains a bit fast. I have a problem with the new update and i cant connect to 4g networks, but even with 3g, this phone is worth the money. The cpu runs quite good, it is very smooth on the menus and it has a very good camera. The only problem is that its internal storage is mounted as sdcard0, and as a result you cant install apps on external sd. Im very happy with this phone and i am not going to replace it any time soon....
I brought this phone a couple days back and I absolutely love it yes the camera could have been better but I got it for a really good price brand new I love it a lot compared to my other one which was a huawai asscend which I did not like
the phone looks ok, nice design and quite light, the battery is pretty long lasting, good quality calls, be it phone or other apps, loud speakers and that's pretty much all good about it.
it comes with a shitload of preinstalled apps. doesnt have the option to reorganise the menu items and i even had problems downloading apps on it. for example at some point it said it downloaded an app for 2-3 hours and it was just a 25mb one and my internet speed was good. doesnt let me move some apps on the sd card for no apparent reason
camera is claimed to be 8mp. either it's not or (most-likely) the compression is too big and it makes the pictures look rather grainy
it also doesnt have the option to move or copy my contacts to and from the phone and SIM card. this can only be done individually.
When it wants it can move pretty ok, including the internet surfing and the switch between apps (not too fast but at least gets the job done), but I had it freeze so many times and generally fuck up everything that I preferred to open my laptop to reply to a fb message.
My advice would be to save some more money and buy a better phone. This one is cheap and non-reliable, and I'm not saying it's cause it is a Vodafone phone, as from my experience the quality is pretty much directly proportional with the money spent, regardless of brand.
I blame myself for buying this in a rush when I was broke instead of waiting an extra week and buying a proper one. As mentioned in the above comments the camera is terrible, however what do you expect for this price. The main problem is that the normal telephone functions are very poor. I don't care if the camera is shit but if I have to struggle everytime I use the phone it doesn't really work...
I bought this brand new and I could tell within ten minutes that this phone is some bullshit they threw together at the last minute, while wearing blindfolds!
I never have 4G internet even though I paid for it and every area I am in has 4G coverage. I called Vodafone yesterday and they said they would fix it within 24 hours but it still says H+ when it should say 4G! Wtf is going on?!
This phone is literally slower than my moms four year old Motorola RAZR M!!!
This phone is garbage!
ovi, 16 Nov 2015Yes, it has a front cameraSo slow charging phone, worst camera and I don't recommend tu buy this phone
Cheap and basic but even at that not worth the money. Spend an extra few quid and get something better. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!
ive owned this phone for 6 months, its very slow and freezes when using large apps such as facebook, messenger, instagram, and snapchat. its ok for the price though.
savanna, 30 Nov 2015this phone is shit the screen every so often will stop working and you have to wait till it go... moreHi Savanna,
This freezing of the screen happens to me, very occasionally. I have been able to re-start my phone without having to wait for the battery to go flat. This may be of some assistance to you.
The following link shows two methods to re-start, I have only been able to try Method 2:
Method #1 involves removing the battery, waiting a few seconds and then replacing the battery and re-starting the phone from the power button. However, the battery in my handset is not removeable. Consequently, I use Method #2.......
The method that this link demonstrates, involves you holding down two buttons on the side of the phone until the re-start process starts. It feels like a very long time but it is only 10 (real) seconds, so be patient. The link shows you which two buttons to hold down.
Kely, 01 Jan 2016Blue light in top left corner ? For what The blue LED at the top left corner of the handset has two functions:
1) When connected to a charging lead, the LED lights up to tell you that your phone is being charged.
2) When you receive a text or eMail AND you have the LED Notifications option set to ON, the blue LED will flash about once every on and off about five seconds. To see the LED Notifications setting on your phone, go to Settings->Display->LED notifications
Hope that this helps.

savanna, 30 Nov 2015this phone is shit the screen every so often will stop working and you have to wait till it go... moreNone of the problems that everyone else is complaining about never happen to my phone so you must need to just look after it properly. This is a great phone for a great price.
