The premise of the Vodafone 555 is sound. It's a cheap phone for Facebook fans not keen on splashing out for a fancy smartphone on an expensive contract. The interface, although basic, does a pretty good job of splitting-up Facebook content intuitively, too. However, as there's no fast connectivity, any online exploration - whether on websites or within a Facebook gallery - feels horribly slow. Too many phones around the same price offer this quick connectivity. It may be part of a cutting-edge new wave of "social networking phones", but in use it feels distinctly behind-the-times.
