FYI: Vodafone Ireland very recently pushed an o.t.a. 'force' update that cannot be skipped or avoided in any way. That update kills double-tap to wake. It also causes problems with admin right, e.g. fingerprint unlock clashes with Arrow Launcher's double tab to lock feature. Go figure. Worst of all: I tried 2 V8 devices, and both suffer from significantly poorer 3G/4G reception. Frequent dropped calls where, in 12 years with Vodafone, I never had a single dropped call. Oh, and bizarrely after the update certain Developers Options are enabled by default such as btsnoop hci logging. ALTHOUGH dev options are NOT visible in settings. Result: random and fairly chunky btsnoop_hci.log files - in one instance a 600MB (!!!) after a transfer of 5 ordinary jpegs. Ouch. Since Vodafone Ireland probably didn't cook up the update, I wonder if UK handsets will have similar problems.
why has the contact and messages aps disappeared from the front screen?
Bought this and unlocked on eBay, nice big multi color notification LED on it. Very fast and nice alternative to a Nokia 6. Smart V8 has the newer Snapdragon 435 also.

Got one this morning , used to have an iPhone 6 , had to sell due to circumstances, had a budget smart 7 prime which was a bit rubbish, but so far this phone is awesome , really fast , does every thing the iPhone did just as well if not better , very happy at the second but will have to see in next few weeks if there are any problems but so far really very happy with it
Van, 30 Jun 2017Don't know phone, not available in country. How do you know it's definitely a good phone then?... moreI am see stats at gsmarena my friend so i said my opinion.
Thats not clueless but clever. I am able to read :-)
This looks like a very decent upgrade to last year's Smart Ultra 7 which was a very good device. I'm getting this device in a few days and can't wait to test it out.
AnonD-441601, 30 Jun 2017For its price its a definitely good phone despite i dont know this brand and its not available... moreDon't know phone, not available in country. How do you know it's definitely a good phone then? Your funny and clueless.
