At a glance

If you or someone you know is looking to dip their toes into the smartphone waters for the first time, there are few better options than the Vodafone Smart first 7. For one thing, it’s our most affordable smartphone on the market at just £25, but on top of that there’s a ream of essential specs that mean Smart first 7 owners don’t need to compromise.

What makes it great?

While a lot of modern smartphones are too big for comfortable one-handed use, the Smart first 7 is really pocketable with a 3.5-inch display. There’s a capable 2-Megapixel camera on the back and Android 5.1 underneath, which brings access to the full Google Play app store. But the specs are just the tip of the iceberg.

Knowing that the Smart first 7 is made for people brand new to the world of smartphones, we’ve done everything we can to make it super simple to use. The pure and simple home screen launcher, for instance, strips away the noise of a cluttered home screen by showing only a handful of favourite apps with big, finger-friendly icons.


Then there’s our smart animated tips, which appear onscreen when needed to walk Smart first 7 owners through gestures and actions (pinch-to-zoom, pulling down the notification shade, etc.) that may not be second nature to smartphone newcomers. Keen to learn? A simple swipe to the right of the home screen will pull up a whole dedicated tips section, where you can dive and get to know everything that the Smart First is capable of.

The best bit is that both of these features can be turned off in the settings when they become more confident finding their way around the phone, making it a top phone for newbies to grow into. Order yours here!
