This device also possesses some great features like video calling, 3G and Wi-Fi. The reason why this dual SIM android has achieved so much of popularity is, it is an affordable deal and in India it is available at an approximate price of Rs. 8000.
Detailed features and review of Spice Mi-350n:
Design and looks
The device has a sleek design that makes it look quite attractive but of course it is not slim. With the grey and black colored finish, Spice Mi-350n Smartphone gels up well with Blackberry and such other Smartphones. This sturdy device is perfect for the daily handling.
The handset has a big 3.5 inch TFT screen with 320×480 pixel resolution. The display handles 16 million colors. But the touchscreen is merely an average screen without the scratch guard, has features like two fingers scroll and pinch to zoom. But the problem is, sometimes you really have to press the screen hard and this would not be quite pleasant. Even though it is a capacitive touch screen, it makes us feel like a resistive one.
Spice Mi-350n Smartphone has a Mediatek MT6573 chipset that includes a 650 MHz single core processor and Adreno 200 graphics engine for a better graphic experience. The phone has 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of internal storage that can be enhanced with the use of external SD card. The device supports 32 GB of external memory, and that is something particularly reasonable. Spice Mi 350n has Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system. The good thing about this is that 2.3 is the latest version of Android which most of the devices released in and around Q3 and Q4 of 2011 from most manufacturers. The device is registered with Android Market, and this will help you download all the apps properly the way you wish.
This device works well in regards to connectivity. The device has dual SIM with dual standby. To elaborate on this, it means that you can receive calls from the second SIM while your conversation is going on in the first SIM. But, it is worth noting that, of the two, only one is 3G capable and the secondary SIM is a 2G SIM. Other features include WiFi and Bluetooth for quick and better file transfers. Spice Mi 350n is equipped with WiFi Hotspot feature that provides potency to the device for taking up action of wireless Internet router for other WiFi enabled devices.
Spice Mi 350n has a 3.15 megapixel camera at the back along with a VGA resolution front camera that helps in video conferencing. We did not find the camera too fascinating, but its good enough for the given price range of the phone with dual SIM.
Battery backup of Spice Mi 350n is one thing which you would definitely look for since it is a dual SIM phone. Spice Mi 350n is powered with 1400 mAh Lithium ion battery and this android Smartphone has the battery that keeps the device perfect for a good two days. You can expect the reasonable use of WiFi and GPRS web browsing. But since this Smartphone is quite cheap comparatively, there are certain things you should compromise on.
