A typical low cost handset for those looking for a cheaper option. The resistive touch screen may not offer a smoother experience but never the less, for the price what more can you expect. Spice even managed to include Bluetooth and GPRS connectivity, which is a plus point.

Dual SIM Spice M-5665 touch / type phone

Within the box pack you get the handset (Spice M-5665), charger and battery, headset and user guide with warranty card. The price is under Rs. 2,300 – some sites are selling it for as low as Rs. 2,100.

Even though the price looks attractive the handset does not look quite appealing. It would be better to invest some extra money and get a low cost phone from other brands. In fact there are many more options for price under Rs. 3,000.
