The Firefox OS is the newest ecosystem in the block. Not many handsets are around that come with the similar OS. Hence, these are just young days for the operating system, with a burning hope that it will soon catch up to the likes of Android and iOS.
The Android and iOS, however, aren't the only ecosystems in the block. We also have the likes of Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS that are trying to catch up with the others. But none have been able to gain a similar status in the market.
With the Firefox OS just starting out, two phones have already arrived sporting the OS. We are, of course, talking about the new Intex-made Cloud FX handset and the Fire One Mi-FX from Spice. Both are in the budget segment with an OS that's still in its infancy.
Sure the market will always be dominated by the likes of Apple, Samsung and Sony. But if the introduction of a brand new OS is something to go by, then the market is up for exciting times ahead in the upcoming months.
So here's a look at a detailed specs comparison between both the handsets.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Operating System
There's no real differentiation in this regard since both the handsets, as expected, come running the brand new Firefox OS under the hood. So expect all the Firefox-based goodies and features to arrive with the handsets as well.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Display and Dimensions
Both are entry level phones, as you may expect. So there's not much to look forward to in terms of designing and great additions in this regard. While the Spice Fire One Mi-FX comes with a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display with 320x480 pixels, the Intex Cloud FX offers exactly the same specs. The Intex-made device also weighs in at 104g.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Camera
The Spice Fire One Mi-FX comes sporting a very basic 1.3MP rear shooter, although without flash support. The handset also has front facing 0.3MP snapper.
The Intex Cloud FX, on the other hand, offers a slightly greater yet basic 2MP rear camera, with Intex deciding against a front facing shooter for the handset.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Processor
While the Spice Fire One Mi-FX comes with a 1GHz processor, the Intex Cloud FX also keeps up with the most basic handset offering by providing it with a similar 1GHz processor.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Storage and RAM
The storage and RAM specs for both the devices also fall in the basic category as well. The Intex Cloud FX, in this regard, offers 128MB of RAM with an internal storage of 46MB. There's also the support for microSD that only supports 4GB.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Battery
The Intex Cloud FX comes with a battery capacity of 1250mAh. Compared to this, Spice Fire One Mi-FX's battery capacity is yet to be known.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Price
While the Spice Fire One Mi-FX has been priced at an unbelievable price of Rs,2,299, the Intex Cloud FX has been put up with a price tag of Rs. 1,999.
Spice Fire One Mi-FX Vs Intex Cloud FX: Verdict
Both Spice Fire One Mi-FX and Intex Cloud FX are budget level handsets. Hence the specs for both handsets are opting for the most basic offerings. And the Specs aren't that big a deal in this respect.
However, if we are to strike a winner among the two, we are going with the Intex handset. This is because not only is it priced lower and 'comparatively' it offers greater specs.
