Terrific Phablet for its price!

I bought Spice MI-500 three weeks back from Spice Hotspot store in Bangalore and this phone rocks for its price.

The hardware is decent for running most of the applications I have thrown at it. The phone has never frozen/hung till date amid heavy usage and the battery lasts the whole day. On couple of occasions it has gone without a charge for 2 days with light use. The dual core breezes past most of the demanding applications, games or playing movies. I have also installed a lot of applicat...

Best in its class

this is my initial review of Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500

*good 1ghz dual-core processor
*512ram cant ask more in 12.5k coz many 16-20k mobile gives 512 ram

most important benchmark scores are—
Quadrant Standard Edition -2633(mmx a100-2189 a90-2543)
nenamark2 test – 27.7fps (mmx a100-16.3 a90-24.3)
antutu benchmark tests – 5430(mmx a100-2845 a90-3887)

so my verdict is Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 will be the best mobile in its class

3G Browsing - Very good.

Camera Quality - OK

Battery - Still to be tested for extreme us...

Good phone in this price range

Got the phone yesterday from Saholic as it was not available in Flipkart temporarily. I am not a technical person in IT but an end user. The phone did not disappoint me.

Touch - quite good- multi touch is really good
Internet browsing - quite fast even using 2G SIM card of BSNL. May be due to DUAL Core.
Looks good.
Pretty heavy ( Still, can be carried in shirt - upper pocket)
Screen resolution - OK, vivid colour display
Sound - not loud enough even during calls
No button for "silent mode"...

Good Phone

Got it from local spice hotspot as is is out of stock in Flipkart.

1) Fast performance
2) smooth interface
3) Gives screenguard and flip cover bundled. Extra back cover of same colour is provided too.
amongst others

Now the CONS :

1. No PC sync facility. If you connect it to PC, it will do so only in mass storage mode. No PC suite software either
2. Call speaker volume is soft. It should have been a bit louder.
3. Feels pretty heavy.
4. Probably wont get the jelly bean update
4. Ba...

*Phone looks awesome.
*5-inch screen
*android 4
*Dual core 1Ghz processor
*Touch and overall performance is good

*Camera Quality is ok.
*Does not have HD screen. Resolution is low.
*Its little heavy
*No Gorilla glass
*Battery takes too long to charge. Not able to fully charge it till now.

I suggest this phone if you have limited budget and want to try large screen phone.

Excellent phone!

I have been using this phone for last 12 days and found no issues so far. Tried gps mapping, navigation, wifi tethering, 3g and 2g browsing and a lot other features. All works like charm.

No hangs so far, touch is superb. Display is fine can read pdf and browse net with great ease. Even though this phone is large, it fits well in your pocket. Look is stunning. It gives a feeling of having a mobile of 30k plus in just a price of 12.5k.

Some stuffs that is bundled with it and justifies stron...

notification led ( rare feature even in phones costing +16000/-
dual core a9 cpu at 1ghz( spice dual core a5 at 1ghz)

very slim device (9.7mm)
caf in video recording.
extremely vivid and rich in color ips display
agc coated glass for protection
