Spice MI-270 hands on review

Battery life is quite acceptable.
It lasted for about 1.5 days with extensive messaging, about 0.5 hours of talk and more than an hour of wifi/bt/gps. Wifi drinks a lot of juice.
Charging the phone from 0 to 100% happens in about an hour.

The battery meter hanged quite a long time at 10% (about >4 hours or so below 10% before it drained off completely)

Call quality is good like any other good reputed phone. Never had any complaints from the other end of the line.
Headset music quality was much better than I expected. Good speaker volume, but might hear a slight noise when kept in full volume.

The 2MP Camera delivers what a 2MP does. It does recognises barcodes and QR codes without problems.

The speed of the phone is satisfactory for this price range. It never showed any major lag.
The only scenario where I felt some lag was at the Market, when I had about 3 apps simultaneously downloading and installing.

The default Contacts mgr doesnt have Groups. Downloaded GangBookGroup Mgr for that.
Rooted the phone using Z4ROOT and it worked like a charm. For some reason Temporary Root did not work.
But permanent root worked.

The default Messaging app isn't that attractive and lacked some features. GoSMS app solved that issue and it also displays from which SIM (1 or 2) the message is sent/received. The call log also has the similar feature.

Typical resistive touch and I'm loving it. You will never need a stylus. Scrolling along menus is smooth, but not as smooth as you might see in HTC or any other.

Almost all apps that I downloaded worked well. Did not try any games though.

Pros:
1) Cheapest branded dual sim(GSM GSM) Android phone in the market. Bought its for Rs.5099 (US$110) from Letsbuy.com
2) Android 2.2 (Froyo)
3) Good looks. Matt covers.

Cons:
1) No flash light with the 2MP Camera, which isn't up to the mark.
2) Less than par battery life.
3) Screen could've been better. Little white fonts show a slight tinge of grey with it.
4) NO 3G. Well, thats too much to expect!

Overall a great phone, with most of its greatness from the power of Android.
I'd surely give it a 4/5 for the features that it offers for this price range.

Hands on unbiased review

Within 48 hours I got this phone after ordering. That's FlipKart!
I've using the phone since quite a while. Some note:
PROS:
1. Can be used as modem to computer/laptop. Although i used it in Ununtu/Linux. I don't know how to do it in Windows because no PC suite is there in the provided disk(it only contains usb driver).
2. USB Charging.
3. Support multitasking, Android market and all other ANDROID stuff.
4. All downloaded apps works.
5. GOOD LOOKS. GOOD PRICE.
6. Wi Fi connection works like a Charm.
7. Threaded view of sms.
8. Push mail.
9. Pre-installed facebook, youtube, GoogleTalk, Yahoo Messanger, Nimbuzz and many more.
10. Maps, GPS navigation works well.
11. Streams video from youtube, rtsp links etc, with no settings by user. That's good.
12. Stylus is there.
13. Notification LED lights for new sms and email etc.
14. 214 MB internal storage. 190.56 MB RAM.

CONS:
1. Can't connect internet in the computer through BLUETOOTH. Only usb.
2. Camera is like 1.3 megapixel.
3. Photo browsing is slow by default photo viewer app. Video is faster. Perhaps one need to install other image browser app.
4. Touch is resistive not capacitive but for 3.5k that is good.
5. No sd card in the package.
6. The phone is slow but enough.
7. No PC suite for this in provided CD. However in Ubuntu/Linux no PC suite required.
8. The sound quality is great but not with provided earphones.
9. Opening the back cover to take out the battery is a little tricky and cumbersome.
10. The hardware buttons are some hard. but will do.

Nice..

Hey.. Was very curious abt this phone so finally caught a running handset...
This phone has 2.8" resistive touchscreen so no multi touch..
It has 600 MHz processor, same has micromax andro a60 or galaxy 5..
It can play angry birds very well but not asphalt as it requires min 667 mhz and a gaphic chip...
Its a very good phone in this price segment..

i doubt

when i was at spice hotspot planning to change my old handset, i tried this cellphone and did little hands on.

I do not think it can run any application smoothly.
There was no application installed externally and had only pre-installed applications but still it was too laggy.

If i would have to buy any cheap android phone, this won't be my choice and i do not recommend this handset.

Rest is upto you.

Spice MI 270

Hi ,

The Main reason I purchased this Mobile was because I use Dual Sim Phones and was in need of a Dual Sim Touch Screen Android Mobile.

I purchased this Mobile 2 weeks back and frankly am disappointed because if I had waited another week , I could have got Spice MI350 which is dual sim , has 3.5 Inch Screen and most important has 3G and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. First things first , Screen resolution and clarity is good , on a normal 2g sim card , you will get speeds of around 50-85 kbps and 150-180 kbps max. Internet Surfing is quite good and only problem is when you access you tube , it takes a long time to stream the full video. Facebook also takes time and hangs and you have to reload the page again. Android Market apps downloading is quick and does not take much time. Camera Clarity not that great. Video resolution is pretty good with decent volume and sound effect and excellent Clarity. Cons are that the phone sometimes has a tendency to hang and call neither gets connected nor gets cut which is a headache.

Overall my rating is 3 out of 5.
