There’s no shortage of wallet-friendly smartphones at the moment, with the £100 Motorola Moto G really making people question if any phone is worth £500 – five times as much as the Moto G.
Chances are the Vodafone Smart 4 Mini won’t have quite the same impact, but it’s worth noting for its £50 price tag.
The Smart 4 Mini is on sale now at Vodafone, but the big question is: what do you get for your £50?
Well, Vodafone Smart 4 Mini specs include a 4in display (480 x 800), dual-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage (with microSD), a 3MP rear camera, and Jelly Bean Android 4.2.
As for Vodafone Smart 4 Mini colours, it’s available in both black and white. No premium gold option?
Features you might miss include a front-facing camera for “selfies”, a flash for the rear camera, 4G connectivity and NFC, but hey, good luck ticking those four boxes for £50.
To give that £50 price tag some context, the Vodafone Smart 4 Mini is a tad more expensive than the £40 Nokia Asha 503, and about £10-15 cheaper than the Nokia Lumia 520.
Well, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for, bro. If you can stretch to £100 for the Moto G, stretch away.
