Compare 725 Deals

The Vodafone 725 is a monoblock 3G phone that balances an attractive price with an impressive range of features. Housed in a conservative-looking handset is has the immediate advantage of decent-sized keys and the user interface is a straightforward grid menu system.  Internet is fast with 3G/HSDPA, supported by GPRS/EDGE and short-range wireless Bluetooth.

Budgeting involves compromise and Vodefone have chosen to do it via the camera – a weak 2 megapixel affair without flash, so good enough for basic snaps and email or blog shots but little else.

There is a basic MP3 player which you can listen to via a wireless headset as this Bluetooth supports A2DP, or you can send the music to a wireless speaker kit. There is no headphone socket – not even a proprietary one.

Internal memory is only 20 Mbytes but there is a microSD card slot for additional storage. Battery life of this no-frills but reliable budget buy is around 3.5 hours’ talk time or up to 14 days on standby from a full charge.
