Vodacom rebrands an Alcatel V860 smartphone as a Vodafone Smart II. Is it worth its R1 300 asking price or should you spend your money on another budget device?
PROS
Sturdy construction; pocketable dimensions; higher resolution display than rivals; and handy Data Management app.
CONS
Not the best performing budget CPU; rather average camera performance; and screen prone to displaying glare; plus a real fingerprint magnet.
VERDICT
One of the best contenders in the budget crowd, offering a higher resolution display and better looking design than most of its rivals in the entry-level segment.
