The Vodafone Smart First 6 Smartphone is one of the cheapest mobile phones with this many features that you will find anywhere online. This phone is meant to be used on Vodafone Pay As You Go. A SIM card is included but be aware, the minimum payment is £10 month. If you have a Vodafone PAYG sim already then I believe that will work fine. The Smart First 6 is also locked to the Vodafone Network but can be unlocked for very cheap (£1 on eBay with an unlock code).
The Vodafone Smart 4 is a great phone for the price, but the Smart First 6 is even better. And for £30 it seems crazy cheap for what you get. So what do you get..You basically get a phone that is capable of all the things a much more expensive Smartphone can do. However, don’t expect the Smart First 6 to be at the same level of performance and build quality as say a Sony Xperia Z4 or Z5. They are worlds apart in terms of quality, performance and refinement. And so they should be considering the price gap.

The First 6 is a budget Smartphone after all, aimed at people who are on a tight budget or new to using Smartphones. But it does offer excellent value for money and still feels great in the hand, and is a good quality phone in its own right. But due to its price point its a great option for clumsy people!
Being an Android phone you have access to literally hundreds of thousands of Apps such as games, puzzles, Facebook (already included), Twitter (already included), catch up TV, Youtube, Google Translate, Sat Nav, SoundCloud, Weather reports, Cbeebies Playtime for the kids, and about half a million more. Most are free. The First 6 has WiFi so you can browse the Internet, check mail, do online shopping etc. The specification and operating system make it quite stable and able to run several software programs at the same time with relative ease. Video clips appear clear and stream well. Call quality is also good.
What does it come with: The Smart 6 phone itself, battery, 2 chargers (mains plug-in and USB cable), basic phone manual, extra back cover for the phone, and a free pair of headphones (hands free).
What’s not so good. The Camera. With it only being 2MP the picture quality is quite poor. But for such a cheap phone this is to be expected. The Samsung E2600, although a great phone, has a terrible camera and that phone is double the price of the Smart First 6. If you want to delve into the Smartphone world but don’t want to spend much money this is a good option.
Great for kids, technophobes ready to give it a go, or people on a tight budget who still want phone access to the Internet, a mobile music device, Android and all it’s capable of, and a ton of other features. Most customers so far are happy with what they got for the price. Lots of good reviews, and a few not so good. No matter what the phone that is always the case. The choice is yours.
