Excerpt: "The Vodafone 858 is an entry - level smartphone which can be bought at lower and lower prices every year. However, it is not a flimsy or low quality product. Mine has survived falling into a stream, being sat on, slept on, and thrown around by idiots for almost three years, and it still works as well as when I bought it. This phone runs on an Android operating system, and this can easily be upgraded through an option listed in the settings menu. ...
Pros: Extremely low price for so many features, Android operating system, good battery life .
Cons: Sometimes it will crash, and enabling many features drains the battery in about four hours .
Summary: The phone is ok, but the keyboard is difficult to managed without a pencil - also the apps don't seem to respond at all well. The battery just about lasts a day, so needs regular charging, much more than I've experienced with other phones except when they were getting to the end of their life. Probably wouldn't choose this again, but then it was a budget phone I guess.
Summary: I bought this for myself after drowning my old phone and wanting to upgrade to a Smart phone, without spending a huge amount of money, and keeping my existing Vodafone SIM. I found this easy to use to set up although the touch screen does take some getting used to. It helped a lot when I realised the keyboard was wider when the phone was turned on it's side (I am over 35 so these things don't come naturally!!).
