HD, 12 Mar 2018Seriously awful phone, multiple issues, loaded with standard social apps; facebook, twitter, i... moreCouldn't agree more. So many issues on this smart 7 I cannot believe it...sound dissapears/is muted, contacts dissapears and then reappears, turns itself off whenever...changes appearance/colour schemes, you name it I have already had to factory reset 😒 and I've only had it for 2 months! Never had any of these problems on any other phone I've owned. One word..CRAP
HD, 12 Mar 2018Seriously awful phone, multiple issues, loaded with standard social apps; facebook, twitter, i... moreWell there we go ... I love this phone (had it about a year) and have none of the issues you have!
Seriously awful phone, multiple issues, loaded with standard social apps; facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat and WhatsApp, all run slow and stop responding, the device states that it is out of space yet there is no file stored locally according to the phone (other than whatapp which I have to clear constantly)
If this was the only issue I could persevere however, since day 1 the bluetooth is severely flawed, I use several bluetooth devices, all of which had no issues with previous phones. After a couple of disconnects and reconnects it no longer wants to accept using the phone function on several devices until you reboot the phone.
The phone function (the primary function) crashes quite frequently sometimes leaving you unable to answer calls, see who has called you, see who you've called and sometimes calls people you have not actually dialled instead of the person you intended.
I have tried resetting to no avail!
*** AVOID THIS PHONE AT ALL COSTS - NEVER BUYING A VODAFONE PHONE AGAIN EVER!!! ***
Coming from a z3 compact I knew this would not be as fast but it has to be one of the worst phones out there. Running apps is great... When they start. For example opening messaging cab take 30 seconds.... Really? 18 months in and the battery doesn't last a day, it can go from 20% to 0 in a blink
Anonymous, 16 Feb 2018Worst phone I've ever used avoid this like the plague ,not enough space here to explain it all... moreNo one would care if you "disapeared" one night so no one actually cares about your opiniin either
Had mine about three years. Specs match up to LG at a fraction of the price. Camera not brilliant but otherwise a good bit of gear. Apps ll run well, reasonably fast and plenty of storage for what i use it for. Battery life is better than many of it's higher priced competitors.
Value for money it is an excellent everyday tool for me,
Worst phone I've ever used avoid this like the plague ,not enough space here to explain it all ,now looking for something better!!!.

The Vodafone Smart Ultra 7 has been a very useful and reliable phone for me. The screen is a bit of a fingerprint magnet, and there aren't too many cases that are made for it, but those are my only real grievances. For the price you get a very usable phone, and it has lots of good features as well, but that will take me too long to go into. For the price range this is one of the better phones in my opinion. Vodafone hit the sweet spot here.
Luan Cullinane, 04 Apr 2017This phone is extremely slow with some apps not functioning at all and others running agonisin... moreJust got this phone and have been back to the Vodafone shop. It continuously restarts in the middle of doing things, worst time when answering the phone. All they did was remove some of the apps. Paid Â€160 and fuming with Vodafone. Don't buy this phone
you can replace by yourself LCD befor you order one from aliexpress or send to warrnaty , you will get the price for repair the glass
Hi I took my vf700 smart phone in to a shop. Due to the glass broken.
I've been told I've got to take it back to Vodafone ?
As no one can do it.
Is that right.
Rubbish phone , less than 9gb usable out of 16gb, dunno where the rest of the memory is , plus out of the 9.7ish usable space over 3gb is taken up by system sw . regularly hangs , is unresponsive, loses my details and I have to set up apps from scratch....installed high quality fast extra storage and the phone can't seem to access it efficiently, all apps on the SD card run really slow and hang. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE !!!!
Oh dear me...part of Smart Ultra (6) 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
This phone was fine for 6 months, now it is a nightmare. I had to have it repaired by vodafone, leaving me without a phone for a fortnight. It came back and was great again for about a month, but it has started malfunctioning again. It overheats, turns itself off and the battery lasts no time. I have factory reset and this does nothing to stop the continual crashes. Avoid this phone at all costs.
