Waste of money. A piece of junk

I bought this mobile from Flipkart & their service is just superb. Now just have a review of the handset.
Hardware : below average. The keys are hard & the back cover is too hard to open.
Camera : It has got 3.2 MP but the performance is pathetic. Images are dark.
Battery : very poor. You need to always carry a charger with you.
Touch Screen : very unresponsive.
Speaker : The sound quality on speaker is very low & the voice lacks clarity.
IN A NUTSHELL THIS IS A CHINESE MOBILE WITH STAMPING OF SPICE ON IT. PLS DON'T BUY IT. DON'T WASTE YR MONEY ON THIS JUNK, BETTER BUY A SAMSUNG OR HTC

Best Android Phone in this Price..Period!!!

HI, i bought this mobile recently and it has worked well to my expectations..read on..

the GOOD:
decent capacitative screen
qwerty works well for a business phone
Analog tv is very clear
most of the necessary functions work well
battery life is decent
front camera tethering
wireless FM
3g
wifi

the BAD
low ram and memory
low screen resolution

My verdict: (mind you I am also using iphone 5 and Galaxy note 2 and got this phone for qwerty and analog tv only as a gadget freak ;)

This phone has a marked price of 7k change and offered at 3.8k is the best the money can get given the plethora of working features and looks biz class too!!

Best Deal & Best Experience

Wow!! First of all hats off to Flipkart service. I did lots of research before buying a mobile.
Features I was looking for in a mobile were touch & type, compact, great looks,dual sim,3g,wifi, and some extra features basically a full fledged smart phone but with an comparatively low cost and good brand. Googling on web i came across Spice Stellar Mi-285 which looked amazingly awesome and with an unbelievably priced and also with discount within 3days as promised. This was the first time I ordered online and was really very happy. Ya about the phone its very good I am very happy with build quality and price tag and specifications.Yes Dual camera- primary camera is ok secondary camera is good for video chat which is very important function in a mobile now a days. It has dual sim one 2g one 3g which is also good above all nice qwerty keypad when you are tired of on screen typing. which also gives it a nice gadget look.And most importantly Analog TV guys !! . Overall good gadget and lots better than samsung galaxy y pro duos big boo for it. Browsing is smooth. yes few compromises like ram size is low but 3g works smooth no problems. I suggest all of you to go for this mobile without tension.

Cheap but basic

I bought this phone in preference to the Micromax Aisha A52. The decision was bad because of the following:
1. Touch responsiveness: I doubt if the sensitivity across the screen is uniform. Picking up or rejecting a challenge because the slider simply refuses to budge unless you tap the screen into action.
2. Memory: The inbuilt memory is very small and even if you install basic apps for reading news articles and websites, the memory is loaded.
3. Gimmicks: GPS does not work at all. I doubt if a functional chip is installed. TV is useless everywhere as the picture is worse than the 1980 B/W television that your grandparents owned.
4. Battery is very unpredictable. It sometimes lasts more than a day, while on others it just fades away within 12 hours. Adjust the brightness to the minimum level. The light sensor drains away the battery.
However, the qwerty is a delight. Very responsive and adds a touch of sophistication to the otherwise plasticky logo.
And spice, stop displaying your logo so boldly. It is poorly designed and exposes the manufacturer to greater consumer scrutiny.

NO RAM SPACE

HANDSET COMES WITH 142 MB OF RAM WHICH BE ALMOST 90% FULL WITH PRE-INSTALLED APPS. I DON'T SEE RATIONALE FOR SYSTEM INSTALLED APPS WHICH IS EASILY AVAILABLE IN PLAY STORE .....RAILWAYS, BSE AND AARTI ARE USELESS FOR ME BUT I CANT UNINSTALL THEM. EVEN A SINGLE APPS DOWNLOAD MAKES IT OUT OF INTERNAL MEMORY, THEN WHAT IS THE USE OF ANDROID .
PHYSICAL QWERTY KEYPAD IS ALSO USELESS AS I CANT USE UPPERCASE LETTER ,MUMBER OR SYMBOLS. AFTER PRESSING ^ KEY ANDROID TOUCH KEY POPS UP.EXTREMELY INCONVENIENT !! THIS MAY BE MAL FUNCTIONING OF MY HANDSET. SCREEN DISPLAY IS POOR .
WITH SIMILAR SPECIFICATION SAMSUNG PRO DUOS WAS FAR BETTER AND USER FRIENDLY BUT @MORE THAN DOUBLE PRICE........SPICE Mi285 IS A COMPROMISED PRODUCT.

Not bad not good

Phone received in good condition & in 3rd day. Carema quality is poor. LED flash not present which decreases the quality of photos.Phone hangs when destop widgets increase, use not more than 2 desktops which consumes more RAM. RAM is 256mb out of which only 138 is usable, rest is for operating system (OS) reserved. Features are good in this price. Battery power is good if tower frequency strength not flactuating. In 2G battery backup is good. Rest of the feature by flipkart is given.

Giving three star for the price range
Phone is good excluding camera & absence of LED flash.

URGENT.........RAM DISCREPIENCY

Having bought this phone 2 days ago, I do not find any problem with it except that Flipkart specifies it has 256 MB RAM. Going to SETTINGS>APPLICATIONS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS or RUNNING SERVICES>RUNNING tab -----> THE mobile says 82 MB used, 60 MB free(bottom). Adding, we get 142 MB. Then where is the 256 - 142 = 114 MB RAM gone? Is there any defect on my phone??? Plzz help and reply fast so that I may replace the model from Flipkart if needed. There is no other defect except downloaded games run extremely slowly so that u get disgusted & Touch is not very high quality but good I should say. Plz help abt processor & RAM.

Good mobile in it's class

I have bought it last week from flipkart,
I received it with in time they promised,
The mobile is good in condition, and every thing working well
touch sensitivity is good,
processor speed also ok, we should not expect more in this price range,
hands free set is cheap quality in built , but the performance is good,

Negative I found in this phone are

1. it taking too much time to get charged
and getting totally discharged with in less than one day.
2.I received CD inside the box , but I could not install that in my PC, I written the same to spice mobile service center they responded well and given some advises and sent some software, but the problem is same ,

ABOUT 10 DAYS BEFORE BOUGHT IT

Dear All,

I highly suggest to go for this as it has all what is required, like
3G,
qwerty pad
Android 2.3.6
Wifi
Bigger screen
YouTube works well
All good application
Now Negatives :
1 Low internal memory
2 Camera is written 3.2 megapixels but looks like 2 megapixles
3 Batter Backup is so much poor works only for half/day

But in this price point this phone is great overall..
