Vodafone Smart C9

While the vast majority of smartphones these days come unlocked for use on any mobile network you so choose, network-locked handsets are still quite common in the ultra-budget space. Here, the big three network providers offer a range of prepaid smartphones aimed at folks looking for a simple, no-frills device at an accessible price.

The Vodafone Smart C9 3G is one such phone. A 3G-only handset locked to the Vodafone network, it's a cheap, unremarkable alternative to the pricier smartphones dominating the market.


Design

  • 4-inch touch screen
  • Android Oreo Go
  • Locked to 3G Vodafone network

Camera

  • 2MP rear-facing camera
  • 0.3MP VGA front-facing camera

Performance

  • A budget processor and 512MB of RAM is what you'd expect at this price
  • Android Oreo Go somewhat compensates for the low-powered hardware

Battery

  • 1,500mAh removable battery
