Vodafone Smart 4 Mini review
Skrimping on features to save you money

A rear-facing 3.2MP camera is all that's on offer with the Vodafone Smart 4 Mini and because there's no flash, it doesn't hold up well in low-light environments. A night mode option is available but in reality it is a poor substitute to a flash.

You won't be taking any professional-grade photos with this handset and there aren't any clever HTC One M8-style ultrapixels or advanced features here.

Instead, it's a WYSIWYG budget snapper that will suffice for quick shots on the move that can then be posted to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

That's not to say there aren't a couple of features to play with. You can change both the ISO and the exposure level, as well as take a Panoramic shot. GPS tagging is also on offer so you can add location tags to your snaps.

There's also the option to shoot video on the Smart 4 Mini at QCIF, VGA, 480p and 720p HD resolutions. You can choose to mute the sound recording as well if you wish.

Take a look below for some examples of shots taken with the Vodafone Smart 4 Mini.

In this close-up shot the camera is able to pick up some of the detail of the grass but little on the ball

In low-light conditions with auto ISO settings, the Vodafone Smart 4 can't compensate for lack of flash

Slightly more detail is picked up with night mode, but the results aren't much better

Panorama mode is available but the process is fiddly and the results are disappointing
