Vodafone UK has decided to discount one of its own-brand Android smartphones, namely the 845. This entry-level barebones device can now be yours for £70 on pay as you go.
That’s really cheap indeed, but this phone doesn’t have much to talk about in the ‘features’ category. Its display is resistive and very low-res, and it (still) runs a ‘customized’ version of Android 2.1, that now is two generations behind the curve.
Also, Orange has the (sadly still 2.1-packing) San Francisco for just £29 more, and while that isn’t anything to get excited about either, it does have an 800×480 capacitive touchscreen to boot. So perhaps that might be a better bargain for those in the know.
For a first-time Android user though, there’s really nothing wrong with Vodafone’s 845. And at this price, it’s quite reasonable value for money too.
