Woolworths Voda & Optus Special

Woolworths in its latest catalogue starting tomorrow (Wednesday 29 July 2015) has two bargain Android smartphones from two of the big Australian telcos.

Woolworths has apologised for an incorrectly placed graphic of the Smart Mini 4 that was in fact NOT the Alcatel 2052.

The smartphones, which include the Vodafone Alcatel 2052, otherwise known as the Vodafone Smart Mini 4 available for just $9, a saving of $30. The Smart Mini 4 originally launched on Vodafone Pre-Paid back in October last year and since then it has been replaced by its successor, the Vodafone Smart First 6.

Vodafone Alcatel

Specs for the Vodafone Smart Mini 4 (Alcatel 2052)include:

  • 4.0″ WVGA TFT Display (480 x 800)
  • 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 Dual-core Mediatek MT6572 CPU
  • Mali-400 GPU
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 4GB Storage, expandable to 32GB via mircoSD
  • 3.15 MP rear camera only
  • Radios:
    • 2G: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    • 3G: 900 / 2100
  • Android 4.2.2
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • 121.6 x 64.4 x 12.3 mm @ 117g

The second smartphone is the ZTE Fit Smart 4G which we have reviewed previously and found wasn’t too bad given the price point the smartphone was aimed for. The inclusion of support for Optus’ 700MHz LTE network makes this phone an absolute bargain.

ZTE Smart Fit

In case you may have forgotten the specs the Fit Smart 4G smartphone is packing, full list of specs includes:

  • 4.5″ TFT display (480 x 854)
  • 1.3GHz MTK Quad core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB Memory (about 4.6GB user space available) expandable to 32GB via MicroSD
  • 5MP Rear camera, 2MP front facing
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0
  • Android 4.4.4 (KitKat)
  • Radio’s
    • 2G: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
    • 3G: 900, 2100 MHz
    • 4G: 1800 (Band 3),2600(Band 7), 700 (Band 28), 2300TDD (Band 40) MHz
  • Dimensions: 144 x 70.7 x 7.9mm @ 154g

Given the price markdown of $49.50 for the ZTE Fit Smart 4G, which is essentially half price, along with the $9 price tag for the Vodafone Alcatel 2052 (Smart Mini 4), both these deals are not too bad if you’re in the market for a relatively cheap mobile phone either as a spare phone or a new phone for the kids perhaps.

It’s pertinent to point out that both phones will be locked to their respective networks, but they’re still a great deal.

Both mobile phone can be purchased through your local Woolworths Store from this Wednesday 29 July for 1 week (ending Tuesday 4 August 2015) either while stocks last, which you may want to check with your local store for stock.

Errr… I think Woolworths have made a mistake. The Alcatel 2052 is not a touchscreen smartphone, it looks like this:



ausdroid should do a bit more research before posting such claims as:

“the Vodafone Alcatel 2052, otherwise known as the Vodafone Smart Mini 4”


Have Woolworths messed up the model number with the description of the Alcatel device?

The Alcatel 2052 as it says in the catalogue is NOT a smartphone as far as I can see. It’s a candy bar phone. It did cost $39 so saving $30 would take it to $9.

Woolworths have the correct model number in the catologue “2052” with specs and picture of a smartphone?
