Vodafone Smart 4 Mini review

 

Smart about price, not so smart on the features

50 price tag ; Good battery life ; MicroSD slot

No front camera ; Boxy design ; Small screen

Ratings in depth Not too long ago smartphones were the preserve of the gadget elite with browsing, email and push notifications on the go requiring a hefty upfront cost.

Admirable budget performance ; Solid design ; Decent screen ; Expandable storage

Terrible battery life ; Soft display

Vodafone Smart 4 Mini Review

 

Exactly how much smartphone can you buy for $69? With a 4-inch screen and Android Jelly Bean, the Smart 4 Mini proves it might be more than you think.

You you already own a more expensive smartphone, you might consider the VS4M a cost-effective Wi-Fi modem. Like all Androids, the phone can be used an internet hotspot for up to 5 devices, and at this price, there are few cheaper.
