Vodafone Mobiles India recently launched their Facebook Phone in India known as Vodafone Blue 555. This new QWERTY Mobile phone from Vodafone has been specially designed to keep you in sync with Facebook, or I would say make you facebook addict 🙂 Anyways Vodafone Blue is a disappointment, mainly because its a 2G Phone, what is the point in making a social networking phone which does not support 3G. The slow speed of 2G will kill all your thrill about the likes,comments and shares of Facebook.
Vodafone Blue 555 comes with a QWERTY Keypad, 2.4 Inch TFT Screen, Trackpad and a 2MP Camera. As the specifications are quite ordinary, even the price is not that great. Its Price in India is Rs.4,600.
From a distance you’ll find Blue 555resembling with HTC chaca but it is infect quiet different. The QWERTY keyboardhas large buttons with hardly any space between them. The phone features thescreen in the conventional landscape format. The shape is not very curvy andhas simple built. Coming to the dimensions it is 110mm long, has width of61.1mm and 12mm thick.
Being very much a budget facebbok phonethere’s nothing fancy about the display. It features a TFT screen withresolution of 320 x 240 pixels and screen size of 2.4 inches .thepixel density is167 ppi pixel.
It features a 2 MP, 1600×1200 pixels, with LED flash but lacks the auto focus. Itrecords VGA video and there aren’t any image enhancing features too. The cameramode allows for switching to night mode, four different picture sizes andbrightness adjustment.
Blue555 features a 200 MHz MTK 6235 processor.Theoverall performance of the phone is satisfactory. It performs the task quietbriskly.
Vodafone 555 features a Bluetooth v 2.1with A2Dp and micro USB 2.0. Unfortunately it lacks Wi-Fi which really is adisappointing aspect of the phone. It has the EDGE and GPRS support but lacks3G support.
The internal storage capacity of the phoneis 40Mb but it does support memory extension with the help of micro SD memorycard up to 32GB.
It has 1000mAH Li-Ion battery that is capableof providing up to 3 hours of talk time and up to 324 hours of stand by time.The battery capability is not entirely satisfactory considering that the phoneis aimed to be social networking device.
Our Conclusion: A Completely wasted phone. Browse for other ones 🙂
