An odd beast

from TechRadar

Below a certain point, cheap phones can be difficult to recommend. But with a decent screen, a fingerprint scanner, NFC for mobile payments, and just about enough power for day-to-day use, the Vodafone Smart N8 comes closer than most.

A competent smartphone with near-stock Android

from TrustedReviews

At less than £100, the Vodafone Smart N8 is a decent and fully featured smartphone. However, there are some notable compromises that can only be solved by throwing a little extra money at the problem.

Expert Reviews

Offers good value for money, but is let down by its processor

from Expert Reviews

The Vodafone Smart N8 is an improvement over last year’s Prime 7, mainly in its camera performance and the inclusion of a fingerprint reader. Is that enough to justify the price tag? Answer: it depends on what you’re looking for. If it’s flagship-style features and a decent camera you want, at £85 this smartphone is a steal; there are no other phones I’ve come across that offer all the features the Smart N8 brings to the table for this sort of money. However, its poor battery life and sluggish performance do let it down.

Recombu

A great, affordable family phone

from Recombu

If you’re on or switching to the Vodafone network and need a seriously affordable handset that can be used to get online and stay connected, the Smart N8 is a very solid selection. Performance is good enough for everyday basic tasks, while the parental controls make it a good choice as a family handset. At this price it’s difficult to fault the camera tech and that surprisingly colourful screen either. With the addition of that fingerprint sensor, you’ll struggle to find better value for money, as long as you don’t mind being tied to Voda.
