With Chinese players toppling local vendors in India, Spice today launched an entry-level budget smartphone with Android 4.4 Kitkat. The low-end of the smartphone market is blowing up in India, and brands like Xiaomi and Motorola are reaping the rewards.
The "smartphone" is becoming the norm - with even the entry-level handsets now offering apps, email and camera. To encash the opportunity, Spice has just unveiled the Mi 430 at a price of Rs. 4,399. The budget phone from Spice offers 3G connectivity and average specifications within affordable price rage.
As far as it specifications are concerned, the Spice Mi 430 sports a 4-inch display with a resolution of 480x800 pixels resolution. Like many other budget phones, it is powered by a 1GHz single-core processor, paired with 256MB of RAM.
The device has a mere 2GB of native storage, which further can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The makers have added a 1400mAh battery fitted inside.
In the camera department, there's a 2MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. The Mi 430 comes with two SIM slot and offers 3G connectivity.
Even though the device is priced under Rs. 5,000, we won't recommend you to buy the Spice Mi 430. It is underpowered compared to the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Asus Zenfone 4 and Motorola Moto E. All these phones are slightly priced on a higher side, but offers value to consumers.
