THE 300 QUID Smart Platinum 7 deviates from Vodafone’s usual blueprint in that, instead of chasing the bargain bin, it targets the mid-range market. The likes of Huawei, OnePlus and Sony probably thought were safe, but Vodafone’s latest effort could prove otherwise.
Like the Smart Ultra 6 before it, the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 combines an attractive design with an affordable price, but the new handset takes the specs up a notch, in some cases belying its budget, which makes it an intriguing prospect.
We haven’t had a device so befitting of its name in a long time, and the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 is sleek and stylish with its exquisitely crafted metal and glass chassis.
The carbon-fibre effect on the back ought to come across as ill-conceived, but we think it works and saves it from mediocrity (not just another black slab). We even like the antenna lines that merge into the metallic black edges. There’s some nice added texture on the buttons, which helps to set it apart from other recent handsets.
In terms of size, the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 weighs 155g and measures 154x76x6.9mm, which makes it longer and wider than the OnePlus 3 but a shade thinner.
A tour of the chassis reveals volume and power buttons on the right and a headphone jack on top, while on the left there’s a camera shortcut button and a SIM tray that has enough space for nano and microSD cards.
A double-header of very capable front-facing speakers are located at the top and bottom, hidden behind mesh grilles. In our tests we found sound quality pleasingly crisp and expansive, especially when gaming or watching video. A USB 2.0 port also lives on the bottom.
