Vodafone Smart 4 Mini: 4in, dual-core, £50

Vodafone Smart 4 Mini: 4in, dual-core, £50There’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.

Most likely an excellent backup phone. You can text, run WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.

Yes, and Lewis: never mention the Asha 503 again. Ever. :p it's possibly the most useless, um, thing. Ever.

Sounds ok! the other Friday I lost my nexus5 :( I put it down to having a hole in my jeans pocket and being slightly inebriated ;) So I went into a local Vodafone store and asked for their cheapest android phone so I could login to my google account and get my contacts back . I paid £52 for a single core 1ghz 512mb ram. it was a bit slow, I woulda loved a dual core like this one. Anyway I couldn't deal with the slowness (OMG 1st world problems) so I've commandeered my old s3 off my son for a bit. But for 50 notes this will probably be ok as long as you are not used to a high end handset
