It was in September that Spice joined hands with Google to launch the first Android One smartphone and now, the vendor has come up with the second generation model. The newly launched Android One smartphone is dubbed Spice Dream Uno H and it is priced at Rs 6,499. Like the other devices launched as a part of the initiative, this one also comes with identical specifications. Anyways, here is a quick review on the smartphone.
Camera and Internal Storage
The camera performance sounds pretty decent with a 5 MP rear camera accompanied with LED flash and a 2 MP front facing shooter. The rear snapper can record FHD 1080p video of decent quality that is average of the pricing of the smartphone.
The internal storage is only 4 GB (of which only 2.27 GB is user accessible) that is paltry for a smartphone in the entry-level matket segment as many manufacturers have started bundling 8 GB of default storage space in their devices. Anyways, this storage capacity can be extended externally by another 32 GB using a micro SD card.
Processor and Battery
The processor used in the Spice Dream Uno H is a quad core MediaTek MT6582 chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz. This processor is assisted by 1 GB of RAM and Mali 400 GPU to render better multitasking and graphic handling in its class. This hardware can definitely make the Spice offering a moderate one in terms of performance.
The battery capacity of the device is 1,700 mAh that is below average, but it should be capable of delivering a day of backup to the smartphone under moderate usage.
Display and Other Features
The Android One smartphone is given a 4.5 inch display boasting of a FWVGA resolution of 854×480 pixels. This screen rendered good viewing angles in our hands and it was capable of displaying good colors without any pixilation.
Spice Dream Uno H is fueled by Android 4.4.4 KitKat and comes with connectivity features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and dual SIM functionality. The handset focuses on the large Hindi speaking smartphone users as it supports complete support to the language.

Price and Conclusion
The Spice Dream Uno H carries a decent price tag of Rs 6,499 for the specifications that it packs. It goes without saying that the Android One smartphones will receive prompt upgrades to the platform from Google, which is a highlight of this offering as well. But, Google has to consider changing the spec sheet of the Android One devices without any major impact on the pricing as such a low storage space, low screen resolution and average battery are some aspects that let this lineup down in terms of competition.
