- One of the most important factors for a smartphone is the DISPLAY and we would like to see whether spice has made any compromises in that front. The only smartphone with a great display is Xolo Q1000which costs 15000 INR. RESOLUTION AND SCREEN SIZE are 2 things which gives 1st impression for customers to buy it. A 5-inch display with a qHD display (960×540 pixel resolution) may be a bit of a letdown considering the pixel density will drop from 244ppi, which it is on a 4.5-inch display to 220ppi on the 5-inch display. Now, this may not seem like much on paper, but if you like looking at a crisp display, this may be a slight bummer for you. Most of the sub-Rs. 15,000 quad-core smartphones show off a 1280×720 pixel resolution display. We have seen smartphones such as the Xolo Q1000, Micromax A116 Canvas HD and more show off this potential and the display on these devices are quite impressive. We hope spice mobile has worked hard on as they have some serious competiton in indian market.
- CAMERA is another important criteria for a smartphone. Looking at the specifications we can say that it has a descent camera. But we will have to wait till we use the phone’s camera
