Excellent phone, have used this for 15 months, still working well. Upgraded to Android 6.0.1 last night without issues, compares very favourably with my experience of Samsung phones. Incidentally my phone is unlocked and I'm on 3, so very happy I still get android updates (including security updates).
Robski, 14 Feb 2017The upgrade process for Marshmallow is a little cumbersome but all then same the new update is... moreupgraded yesterday, anyone else having major battery issues loosing 1% every 5mins approx.
The upgrade process for Marshmallow is a little cumbersome but all then same the new update is a nice reminder I'll probably not need a new phone for at least 3 years. The phone is top notch.
Not impressed with new SD card options with Marshmallow, had to do lots of fiddling about to move apps to card and still having problems, bit of a backwards move from Android this.

I must apologize. I gave a few bad reviews regarding the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. I was originally very disappointed with this phone. After about 3 month of frustration I decided to go directly to the customer care and explained my problem with phone. They checked or tested the phone and after a few days, they swoped it and gave me a new one. Since then, it's about two months now, I have'nt had any problems.
I have had the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 for nearly 1.5 years, and it has been a fantastic phone. Perhaps I have just gotten lucky, but all of the negative reviews I read about it are completely different from my experience.
Some of the reviews don't seen to take into account the price. This phone (when new) cost about 25% of comparable big-name handsets. Of course so many people foolishly forget about price because they spread the cost out over a 2 year contract, which is frankly just poor financial practice.
I have dropped this phone more times than I care to admit, but luckily it has not been affected apart from some scratches on the corners.
I use my phone *constantly* - I listen to music and podcasts all day, make many calls and texts, do web searches and watch videos, and in the evening I play games on it. The battery has obviously weakened over time, but it still lasts through my work day until I get home, which I find very impressive given its age, and the very heavy use it gets every day.
Of course there are some minor issues, mainly that the OS has become slow with age, however I think this is because it needs to be wiped and freshly installed (when I get around to it). But I have less trouble then my family and friends, who all have Samsung, Sony, and Motorola phones (costing much more than this phone did!)
All around, I consider this phone to be one of the best purchases I have ever made, of any kind!
I have one of these which I use in France, Asia and Australia. The biggest problem I have had is that i don't think the antenna is very good. Away from cities in Australia, using identical Sims, my wife's iPhone 4 often picked up a good signal whereas I picked up none at all. Otherwise I am pretty happy with this phone.
Phurya, 26 Oct 2016Some comments here make no sense, really... Smart 6 is probably the best Vodafone branded sma... moreNicely put agree with you great phone for the price I bought mine for £90 brand new had no problems with it does everything I need value for money compared with how much you pay for a iPhone or galaxy.
Steve, 18 Aug 2016It's made by Alcatel not ZTE.I thought it was made by zte but OK anyway will it get the 6.0.1 update
I have a Vodafone Ultra 6 using Android 5.1.1. Does anyone know if I can update to 6.0? The phone is unlocked and NOT with Vodafone. I've tried the phone's 'online update' feature but it keeps coming back with 'network error' message.
Thanks for your comments.
