Spice Mi-410 review

Mi-410 is the latest addition to Spice’s Android family. The phone runs on 1GHz Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, which delivers better speed while browsing, reduces buffering time while streaming (provided your network speed is good), and enhances the gaming experience. What actually makes the handset stand out from the other Android sisters from Spice is its increased screen size (4.1 inch) and increased screen resolution (800x480px). Its capacitive touchscreen delivers smooth navigation and better touch response.

The operating system being Android 2.2 Froyo, offers great flexibility to its users. You can have your device personalized to a great extent by downloading most suitable applications from Android Market.  The homescreen customization with widgets makes accessing your favorite apps with just one or two clicks! (Though it’s a universal feature of all Android phones).

The device comes with quadband 2G and 3G connectivity. You can have more economic and convenient browsing on this device using its Wi-Fi connectivity, while like any other good phone; it comes with GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 2.0 as well.

Spice has done a good job by incorporating a 5MP camera in this device. It comes with an LED flash and has features such as autofocus and CMOS sensor to ensure better quality of pictures.  The 3D view of the gallery is another interesting feature on this device that actually makes pictures look real! A secondary camera (VGA) is given on the front side of the device to enable video calling.

The device has an onboard memory of 2GB, while it can be expanded up to 32GB by inserting microSD card. The device - intended for both business and multimedia use – offers considerable space for storage.

Having GPS with A-GPS and Google Maps, the device is a real helper in your day-to-day life. The eCompass app of the device ensures that the map is auto-oriented towards north, so that you can find directions more easily.

Featuring a good music player, FM radio, social networking apps and push email, it’s a great phone to keep you entertained and connected!
