MTN Steppa vs Vodafone Smart 4 Mini

Vodacom recently launched a new Vodafone-branded low cost Android smartphone it calls the “Smart 4 mini”, presumably for the device’s 4-inch display.

Without contract, the device carries a recommended retail price of R899, which buys you an Android 4.2 “Jelly Bean” smartphone powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 4-inch WVGA (480×800) display.

Though its price point may not make it a direct competitor to the R499 “Steppa” budget smartphone from MTN, it is still interesting to compare the spec-sheets side-by-side.

Since the Smart 4 mini’s name also bears a resemblance to the the Vodafone Smart Mini which launched in 2013 for R799, it’s worthwhile adding it to the comparison too.

The table below shows how the Vodafone Smart 4 mini, Smart Mini, and MTN Steppa’s spec sheets stack up against one another:
