Sri Hari Charan, 09 Jul 2011Hi,
is there any app which detects the speed of CPU?
All apps detect the cpu speed as 207mh... moreWell u see, what i am talking about is the the processor!
At what speed spice is implementing, i cannot confirm.
Run some benchmarks. That will giv u a proper speed cuz then it will be maxed out.
The processor is definitely Mediatek MT6516.
I check the internals, which means my waranty is void.
its an ARM A9 processor with dual sim support. Its not ARM Cortex A9. ARM9 is mostly used in feature phones at speeds from 200-300MHz. Mediatek released this processor with android and windows mobile support. Gigabyte GSmart S1205 has got the exact processor. I would say its better in GSmart cuz windows mobile is less processor intensive. But this processor doesn't provide performance. Its a basic CPU. I hav been trying to everclock it to 600MHz but hav been unsuccessful till now. I wonder is it only me or everyone's got the same problem. I believe it would be as fast as the HTC Wildfire @ 600MHz. Although its an ARM11 processor in HTC, ARM11 has got an ARM9 as its core with some extra bells n whistles. Only the processor would benifit in the Mediatek. Everything else would be the same cuz i checked the documents and doesn't seem to hav any kind of graphics processor. Well use it as a basic dual SIM phone with some smart features that a feature phone can't provide. for performance, get the Mi-410. Sadly its not listed in gsmarena.
D, 09 Jul 2011Thanks Hari. But I meant, can I install unlimited games and applications?
And I don't know... moreHi D,
I have been using the phone for more than a month and as of now, no major flaws. Installed several apps and all worked good.
It can be regarded as a basic android phone. Its slow when compared to other entry level droids, but not so slow that you can't manage.
Spice rebrands chips from China, the only advantage is a year of warranty.
Sri Hari Charan, 09 Jul 2011No flash light. That might be a limitation.
I don't think that there would be any official G... moreThanks Hari. But I meant, can I install unlimited games and applications?
And I don't know a thing about spice. It's a chinese brand. So what about long-term use? Will it start giving me problems after a couple weeks?

All apps detect the cpu speed as 207mhz. But where can I find these figures of 416mhz?

I don't think that there would be any official Gingerbread upgrade.
Considering 2.2 there isn't any limitations with regard to the software.
It delivers what it should for $100.

Is application installation unlimited?
This one has got a processor from MediaTek, MT6516 running at 416MHz. Some websites say it is 600MHz but thats not true. It has got a seperate 208MHz processor which is actually used for the radio or modem. Android can run at frequencies of 330MHz. But for a smoother experience, u need atleast a 600MHz processor. But such a phone with dual sim and android, its not that bad. just as a phone with dual sim and some added smart features, i think it is a phone good enough to be used as a secondary phone if u use to many sim cards. Other than that, if u want to use it as a smart phone with lots of apps, u should look at the Mi-310 instead. good enough entry level phone!
Devashish gulati, 05 Jul 2011Then tell me which phone to buy? in 6.5k as i cant extend my budget. Also, dell XCD 28 is rebr... moreThese chinese clones are generally poor in battery life.
Considering your budget, I'd suggest to buy Nokia 5233. Symbian is an decent OS. But you need to tweak around to use the full capability of it.
Then tell me which phone to buy? in 6.5k as i cant extend my budget. Also, dell XCD 28 is rebranded chinese ZTE Racer & XCD 35 is ZTE Blade.

IMO, Android is more flexible than Symbian.
Dev, 04 Jul 2011Android doesnt run on processor less than 500 mhz mate... Its the min req for froyo... Dint know that! But I've never seen these figures of 500-600Mhz anywhere in the phone.
Hey i am a college studnt... I require a smartphone preferably with wifi. I am an app freak n dont text or call too much. My preference is surfing net. Should i buy this or sacrifice wifi n android for nokia 5233?

Hi Every One I am spice MI-270 user recently i bought this phone its working slowly but now its working nice go to the setting and restore the phone and after the restore u select the normal wallpaper on the display
Dev, 23 Jun 2011But it is shown with mediatech 600 mhz processor everywhere on the net...Its definitely not 600Mhz. I don't know much about these processor tech specs. But all apps detect the processor specs as 207Mhz.

Kutty, 30 Jun 2011Hari: suggest me whether to buy this phone or not?Depends on your requirement. If you are a dual simmer and an android freak with a tight budget this phone may well suit you. Ofcourse, its not a beast, but not that bad though.
Its resistive touch and its much accurate than I expected. You will need some practice to get set to its touch rhythm. Out of the box, the phone is loaded with bloatware which makes it sluggish. You need to root it with Z4ROOT and remove all useless junk.
Music quality is good. 2MP cam and delivers what it should. Video recording was better than taking snaps.
Yes the phone locks when you are on call. To end the call you have to press the top button and then press end button.
I guess this the only cheapest branded Android phone in the Indian market. If you are an end user who doesn't bother about the OS, but only what the phone delivers, then there are quite a few alternatives that you can google.
