Spice has launched various successors of its smartphones in recent past, which includes phones like Spice Stellar Virtuoso pro + (Quick Review) and spice stellar Nhance 2. These new variants have however not been significantly upgraded. Spice Smart Flo Pace 3 is slightly upgraded version of Spice Stellar Smart Flo 2 (Full Review). Let’s take a look at the specs to understand where it stands with respect to its successor and the competition.
Camera and Internal Storage
The camera of this smartphone comes with an 8 MP Sensor and Dual LED flash support. The Mega pixel count is most you can expect at this price range and is also an improvement over the predecessor. The front camera remains same at 1.3 MP and will be occasionally used for video calling.
The Internal storage is at 4 GB and can be extended to 32 GB using a MicroSD card according to specs provided by Spice’s online retail store Saholic. Smart Flo 2 featured only 512 MB RAM out of which only 99 MB was available at the users end. The Internal storage of 4 GB is what everyone else is offering. Spice has not specified how much of this will be available at users end for App download.
Processor and Battery
This Phone comes with a 1.3 GHz Dual Core processor, which is again an improvement over Smart Flo 2 and will perform well for general purpose usage. The RAM capacity remains same at 512 MB. Phones like Xolo Q700 are offering quad core MT6589W-M Chipset with 1 GB RAM for a marginal increase in price and will offer a better solution for those interested in gaming Apps.
The battery capacity remains same at 2100 mAh, which is expected to give you one day usage if you compromise on factors like display brightness and Location services. The battery backup is similar to what other 5 Inch display phones in this price bracket, like Micromax Canvas Fun A76, will offer.
Display and Features
The 5 inch Display comes with WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The pixel density is similar to that oh phones like Micromax Canvas 2 A110. The text won’t be as crisp and sharp but it will do fine for basic social networking.
