Camera and Internal Storage

Spice is offering a primary camera of 5 MP in this smartphone. The camera specifications remain similar to the predecessor device and to other spice smartphones in this price bracket like Spice Stellar Glamour.

If you are looking for a better MP count at this price range you can consider Celkon Signature One A107+ which offers 8 MP camera at almost same price. A front facing camera of 1.3 MP is also present for those interested in video calling. Over all, camera specifications are above average.

The internal storage is standard 4 GB. Spice has not specified how much of it will be exactly available at the users end. You can extend the storage using MicroSD card up to 32 GB. Spice is also offering 2GB of cloud storage with this smartphone.

Processor and Battery

This phone is powered by 1.3 GHz Dual core processor which is an upgrade from the previous 1 GHz processor in the Mi- 491. The processor is what you can expect at this price range. If you are willing to spend around 2 thousand more you can get Quad core processor from phones like XOLO Q700 and Panasonic T11. This processor is backed by 512 MB of RAM which is again standard at this price range.

The battery capacity of 1730 mAh has also been slightly bumped up from 1700 mAh. This is expected to carry you through the day with low to moderate usage.

Display and Features

This phone comes with 4.5 Inch display with FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels which amounts to a pixel density of 217 ppi which is similar to Micromax Canvas Fun A74. This will provide you with an above average clarity display which will suffice for all intended purposes.

On the software front this phone comes with Android 4.2 Jelly bean operating which will provide first time users with good android experience.

Looks and Connectivity

The Looks and design are pretty average and conventional. The phone is more flat than rounded and the back panel looks glossy with round camera sensor at the top center followed by LED flash. The Volume rocker and power key are both present on the right side of the smartphone.

This phone supports Dual SIM functionality and other connectivity features include 3G, WIFI, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS with A-GPS and micro USB support

Comparison

This device will compete against various budget Android devices in the same price range like Micromax Canvas A74, Micromax Canvas Fun A76 and Celkon Signature One A107+ . If you are willing to move to a smaller screen size, you can consider phones like Spice Stellar Glamour Mi-436 and XOLO A500S.
