A larger screen, a powerful processor and a long lasting battery – that’s what every smartphone manufacturer thrives to offer. Joining the race is Spice with its latest creation, the Stellar Pinnacle Mi-530. While most of the other smartphones stick to a 5-inch display, the Pinnacle moves a step forward with a larger 5.3-inch touchscreen. The Dual-SIM device comes pre-loaded with Android 4.0 and is upgradable to Android 4.1. This Spice phone is currently available at the best price of Rs. 14000. Lets have a quick look at the specifications.
- 5.3-inch capacitive touchscreen
- 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
- 1 GB RAM
- Android 4.0 OS
- 8 MP primary camera
- 5 MP secondary camera
In terms of design, the phone looks highly stylish. No doubt, the handset does find itself a bit on the heavier side, but that’s not a problem. After all, the gadget sports a massive 5.3 inch screen. So that extra bit of weight is truly justified. The 3 standard navigation buttons are placed just below the screen, while the front-camera is located above. The volume rocker finds its place on the right while the power button along with the 3.5mm headset jack and the micro USB port is placed at the top. The left side is completely bare. The rubberish coating at the back offers a comfortable grip.
The Pinnacle Mi 530 comes preloaded with Android ICS but can be upgraded to Android Jelly Bean. You can upgrade your device by simply visiting a nearby Spice service center. The OS is not highly customized, but you might find the notification tray to be a bit different. It comes with 5 customizable home screens. Preloaded apps include BSE/NSE Stock watch app, HiConnect, Nimbuzz messenger, M Tracker ans Spice Gang to name a few. Spice has also introduced a few brand new interactive features such as ‘Direct’ that automatically dials a number displayed on the screen while you bring the phone closer to your ear.
A 1.2 GHz processor along with 1 GB of RAM promises you a decent speed. 16 GB of internal storage is quite sufficient. If not, it can further be extended upto 32 GB via a microSD card. The 2550 mAh battery can easily last for a day and a half.
Decent performance, great battery backup and a fabulous design,the handset is closely compared to the new Micromax A116 Canvas. So, if you are looking out for a good alternative to the A116 Canvas, you might probably want to add up Pinnacle Mi-530 to the list. compareraja.in can help you find the best deals on the same.
