Vodafone Smart A9 (3G, 2.4", Locked to Vodafone) - Grey Slate
The Vodafone Smart A9 3G wouldn't look out of place in an early 2000s music video. Its candy-bar design is decidedly old school, as are the physical buttons that featured so prominently on phones prior to the adoption of the touch screen. Speaking of screens, the one on the Smart A9 measures in at 2.4 inches. It's a colour display, so you're not time travelling all the way back to the world of monochromatic phones, but it's still a far cry from the high-resolution, 6+-inch displays on modern smartphones. If you're looking for a portable video player, the Smart A9 isn't going to be it.
Perfunctory sums up the camera on the Smart A9. To be fair, most of the pre-smartphone handsets it's modelled after lacked cameras entirely, so even the relatively bare-bones 2MP camera mounted on the rear of the Smart A9 is a marked step up. That said, 2MP is the lowest resolution you'll find in a modern phone, and you're going to have your work cut out for you convincing it to produce clear, sharp shots. Even with its built-in flash, you'll probably only want to use it for emergencies.
The pared-back approach continues with the guts of the Smart A9. You've got an entry-level MediaTek MT6572A processor coupled with 256MB of RAM – a meagre combination by modern standards, but it should be sufficient for the basic tasks the Smart A9 is designed for. So long as you only plan on using the phone to call, text, listen to music and occasionally check your Facebook, the limited grunt shouldn't be an issue.
