The battery life is a bit low, as the device comes with only 4 hours of talktime. However, at this price, it is pretty decent. T-Mobile is offering the device for £10 per month contract for 24 months, or £99 for pay-as-you-go customers, as reported by Retail Digital.

"The T-Mobile Vivacity gives you everything you want from a smartphone," said Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices at Everything Everywhere.
