Anonymous, 01 Jul 2012this is nice phoneForget extra features. For the same set of features Samsug/HTC would charge us around 20K and not less than that.
Newbie, 01 Jul 2012Hello Guys I have heard that the applications can be moved to the memory card so why bother ... moreYou are right. You can install app2sd from android market and then use it to move apps from phone to micro sd. Only issue is, some of the apps dont allow you to be moved to micro sd card. So once you have 10-15 such apps, then you have to be picky about the new applications you install. But most of the games allow you to be installed on micro sd. So if your apps are primarily games, then no issue I feel.
those crying about low internal memory, look for link2sd in play store. also search xda for step by step instruction for unlimited internal memory

if you want gorilla glass disply go for samsung galaxy s ,sl etc..... u have to pay more to get gorilla glass, hd recording , and bettar displays
in spice you are paying about 9700 rs,you are getting adobe flash support, good resoulation 480*800 4.1 inch display, ics update , front camera, back camera autofocus with led flash,2000 mah battery
this phone is much better than pathetic samsung galaxy y ,galaxy y duos, galaxy ace, galaxy ace duos
I have heard that the applications can be moved to the memory card
so why bother about internal memory?
clarify me if i am wrong
Actually I was going to buy it, but looking at your reviews I have changed my mind and will find the another phone...
This is challenge for spice to reach upto the customer in this compatative market.And spice had forward one step ahead.But this phone lacks some important features like gorilla glass display,more than 256k colour,better viewing angles,512mb ram,adobe flash support,divx video support,full hd video recording,better camera performance,image and video editor,documents editor.
Good dual sim android phone for 9.4k.
Good screen size.
Good camera clarity.
1 Ghz Processor.
very less internal memory.(149mb)
Video gets recorded only in .3gp.
If upgraded to 4.0 it makes this phone best.
Never compare this big brands(HTC,Samsung,Nokia) as you cant get all specs of this phone in them for 9.4k atleast as on jun-2012
I own this phone and have posted the review...check for user review by bbsrailfan on XDA-Developers.

Good for the price asked
After skipping waiting for the mi-500, went for this one. Had purchased it last week. For the eight grand I paid, it is a decent phone. Camera is ok. The large 4.1" display could have been better (only 256k) though it is not bad by any means. Build quality and feel is great and the UI is snappy though feels a little half-baked at times. If only manufacturers would give stock GB/ICS with their phones.
Should have been shipped with a screen guard. The supplied screen guard has specs printed on it so you have to take it off.
Also, I'm in the market for a cover/case, so looking at other 4.1" phones whose accessories I can use with this one.
Bottom line: Great for your first android phone. Especially for people not wanting to go for puny 2.8, 3, 3.2 inch entry level phones with pathetic resolutions (Yes I'm talking about you, Samsung), this Spice is a very good buy. Waiting for ICS update (as promised)
This phone is awesome. This phone is so packed with features that it gives its competition a run for their money. The pricing is just right under Rs. 10,000. Apps work really well and games like angry birds work just fine. The only problem is that the home screens cannot be viewed using pinch to zoom. But pinch to zoom works really well on web pages. The screen is fine but not brilliant. Youtube videos look nice and clear.
Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS
5 MP Primary Camera
0.3 MP Secondary Camera
Dual SIM (GSM + GSM)
4.1-inch Capacitive Touchscreen
1GHz Scorpion Processor
32 GB Expandable.
Good battery Life
Screen is not sharp and colours lack depth.
Homescreens cannot be viewed at a single glance.
Only 140mb of internal storage.
Al in all the phone is really nice to use. This is my first Android phone and i'm loving it. If you want this phone, Just go for it. You cant go wrong.
1. while downloading files from internet using master sim, the slave sim goes down, no connectivity and you get no calls to slave sim.... may be vice versa..haven't tried it yet... this is very inconvenient as i miss many important calls coming to my slave sim while browsing internet using master sim.
2. also opening photo gallaries is very slow and annoying though haven't captured many photos.
3. BSE/NSE app is always active which i dont use, kills my RAM.
i bought this phone around a month ago and have been using it without any issues since then, it may be called the poor man's iPhone.
It has got a good size screen and the best part is the battery, 2000 mAh. Lasts you atleast 2 days no matter what you use the phone for, well almost.
for all practical purposes, whats the point of having a mobile device with all the bite if you have to charge it everyday or sometimes may be twice a day.
The spec sheet says 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon, while it may be good on paper, in real life you wont feel too much of a difference having said that it isnt slow either but nothing spectacular either and I am not complaining. All I am saying is that processor is good but nothing out of the world.
I have been using around 25-33% of the RAM under normal circumstances and even while I am multitasking, RAM usage stays below 50%, which is a good thing.
The display is acceptable, it is not super clear like that of an iPhone or so but it is good, you wont be complaining about it.
The only thing which i feel Spice could have done a better job with is the sound output of the phone. The ringer and the speakerphone are a little short of what you would expect from a phone which boasts of many other specifications. The saving grace is that since this is an Android, I was able to download and install a sound booster application which has improved the ringer volume a bit. It is still a wee bit short of what I would have preferred it to be.
To sum it all up, it is a good value for money phone much better than the Samsungs and the HTCs infact I am pleasently surprised by the build quality and the fit and finish of Spice products. Overall, a much recommended buy :)
