Vodafone Smart 3

The Good Cheap; Decent screen; Camera is fine for snaps; Customisable inserts under the back cover.

The Bad Underpowered processor gives miserable performance; Unimpressive battery life; Only 2GB of usable storage.

The Bottom Line The Vodafone Smart 3 is certainly cheap and the screen isn't bad for the price. The weedy 1GHz single-core processor makes everyday use pretty tiresome though. There are better performing phones available for this kind of money.

Vodafone Smart 3

The Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z might pack the biggest, brightest screens and the mightiest processors, but they also come with sky-high price tags. If you just want an Android phone for the everyday essentials of calls, texts and maybe a bit of social networking, there's absolutely no need to spend £500.

With a pay as you go price tag of only £90, the Vodafone Smart 3 is much more suited to those of you with more modest smart phone needs. It's cheap enough too that it might even be worth considering as an emergency phone to take away on a rough and tumble weekend where your precious iPhone 5 might well get damaged.

The Smart 3 has a 4-inch display, a 1GHz single-core processor and a 5-megapixel camera. It's available now from Vodafone.
