Vodafone 858 Smart unboxing video

VodaSmart-main Seems that Android powered smartphones are coming down in price on an almost daily basis and this Vodafone 858 Smart is the cheapest one we’ve looked at yet. Vodafone call it the Smart but it’s made by Huawei as the U8160. It may not have a wonderful specification but it’s currently selling for just £60 here in the UK on Vodafone Pay-as-you-go.

It may be entry level but when you consider the cost the spec isn’t terrible. It has GPS, WiFi, 2.8″ Capacitive touchscreen and runs Android 2.2 the CPU and camera may be a bit limited but what do you expect for £60!?

We’ll be looking at Vodafone Smart over the next week or so from the perspective of it being a first Android phone of a second ‘spare’ handset. You can check out the video below too.
