A decent smartphone that's cheaper than most videogames. We kid you not.

Extremely cheap ; Easy to use interface ; Decent audio

Poor 2-megapixel camera ; Slightly sluggish 1GHz CPU

- a more direct alternative at £89.

Joining the Vodafone Smart family of handsets is the Smart Mini. This baby of the family is firmly entrenched in the budget market price category. This model is available for around £50 on a Pay as you Go (PAYG) basic. There is a choice of white, pink...

With dimensions of 115 x 62.3 x 12.2mm (H x W x D), the Vodafone Smart Mini has a solid appearance as its weight of 118g weights helps confirm. Dominating the front of the handset is a 3.5-inch screen that delivers a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels....

Vodafone's Smart mini, otherwise known as the Vodafone 875, is the company's ultrabudget smartphone offering to the New Zealand market. At just NZ$99 with a prepay SIM pack, this little Android handset comes in black or an utterly fabulous...

Solid construction ; Light and fairly thin ; Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ; Excellent value for money

Low screen resolution ; Limited performance in demanding apps/games ; Limited-quality 2MP camera ; Pathetically quiet speaker

The Vodafone Smart mini is a basic smartphone with numerous limitations, but it does offer impressive value for the NZ$99 price. Highly recommended for kids, or for those unconvinced on the ‘smartphone’ question and unwilling to spend big in search of...

This is just getting silly now. They should call it the Battle of the Bargain Bin, as it's all out war between phone manufacturers in the low-end right now. After some stunningly specced, sub £100 smarties in recent months, we've now reached this: the...

We’ve seen the occasional sub-£50 Android phone before, but they’ve never packed a reasonable screen size before. By contrast, the Vodafone Smart Mini’s 3.5-inch panel is as large as every iPhone’s was until last year, and if you think smartphones have...

While the small 3.5-inch screen maybe just what you’re after, its low resolution (320x480, actually the same resolution as the very first Android phone launched in 2008) won’t be: it’s grainy, making text trickier to read, and just as importantly also...

If you’re prepared to stretch another £50 or £100, you can get a lot more bang for your buck than the Vodafone Smart MIni - bigger screens, faster processors, better cameras. But let’s be honest: that would also mean doubling or tripling your budget:...
