Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 vs Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 : Domestic Phablets in Comparison

When Samsung launched Galaxy Note, critics were a little skeptic about the reception that the phablet would get in the market worldwide. But the phablet, as soon as it was launched, silenced all the criticism and skepticism that was created around it. Gradually the public interest rose and the demand for the new genre of mobile phones called phablet increased. But price, which is the biggest area of concern in the domestic market, comes in the way of most of the folks interested in phablets.

To explore the possibilities, the domestic companies like Micromax, Spice, and others come with phablets, which are not just good but cost effective as well. But then, the vital question is, which one should the buyers take among the plethora of phablets in the markets. And to provide the readers with a solution I am going to do a comparison between the best phablets available in the domestic market, namely: Spice Stellar HorizonMi-500 and Micromax Superfone Canvas A100. So let’s get started, without delay.


Both the devices are equipped with a 5 inch display; both the displays have WVGA (800x480) resolution. Both the handsets are well equipped with sensors like Accelerometer, proximity, G-sensor. In the weight and dimension segment the Micromax handset is a little ahead of the Spice Mi-500 but as far as the looks is concerned Spice turns the table on Micromax. I would call it a tie.

In this segment the Spice handset seems to be donning  the victor’s crown as it has got a 1GHz dual core processor, whereas the A100 has got a 1GHz single core processor, the difference is quite conspicuous. Both processors are seconded by a 512MB RAM.

In the storage segment the Spice Mi-500 and Micromax A100 both offer the users a built-in memory of 4GB and both of them possess an expansion capacity of 32GB. Both are equals here as well.

The 5MP primary camera of the Mi-500 is supported by a dual LED flash, in reply the Micromax A100 also dons a 5MP camera but has support of a single LED flash. As far as the front camera is concerned, both the handsets has 0.3MP camera on the front side of the body. With a little bit of up and down I would call it a tie.

For a mobile as big as Mi-500 or A100, the battery spec becomes as pivotal as anything. The Mi-500 houses a mammoth 2400 mAh battery, the Micromax A100 comes in with a 2000 mAh battery. Both the phones have a strong battery capacity but Mi has a conspicuous edge over the A100.

Operating System
Both the handsets are Android IceCream Sandwich powered devices. And there is no need to say that the ICS is the best user friendly Android till date.

The Verdict
After going through all the tech specs of either of the handsets, one feels that there is not much to differentiate between the two of the handsets. But with better battery and faster processor, the Spice Mi-500 becomes the better handset between the two good mobile phones. Go for the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500
