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: 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!!).
Excerpt: "I purchased this smartphone because I couldnt afford some of the other brands. I am pleasently suprised by how good the phone is for the price, It does everything you could ask for, Download apps, play games, surf the net. My friend has an Iphone and even he says that there is not much difference between the two phones only the price LOL. I would reccomend this phone to anyone who wants a cheap smartphone that does pretty much everything you could ...
Summary: Its my first time having android phone and it takes a bit of getting used to. The instructions that come with it are not very clear you can go on the website for more information. On the whole I'm pleased with my purchase.
Summary: Nice little phone, lots of features, light and attractive. Works well so far. Fiddly until I got used to it being so different from my ordinary mobile phone. I would like to have been able to add more detail in the phone book, it is basically just numbers whereas my old phone lets me put in addresses, office numbers etc as well. Also it is not as customisable as I would have liked in that I cannot choose ringtones for receiving text messages, only beeps.
Summary: I am using Vodafone 858 for couple of months now and my experience with this phone is very satisfactory. At initial stage, i read multiple reviews about this phone, you tube videos, blogs etc. I saw a Plus points more than the negative points and went ahead and bought this phone. My initial two days, i was spending much time on learning the Android as i never used it before.
