Spice Mi-280 dual SIM android phone features, review and price

Spice Mi-280 is another android phone with affordable price tag and running on the Android 2.3 OS with Dual SIM support. The Mi-280 now joins the existing Spice Mi-720, Spice Mi-350 and Spice Mi-350n family.

The Mi-280 comes with awesome feature that you usually find on high end phone, however to maintain the low cost price tag you will find that the camera and screen resolution are not that impressive. But still this is a good buy considering several factors such as dual SIM with 3G support, GPS and android 2.3 OS.

Spice Mi-280 Review

For the price this is probably the best phone (if you have no issues with the Spice brand) with Android 2.3, dual SIM / 3G support and with dual cameras for video calling. The only issue is with the 3.2 MP camera which is decent enough but without flash, you need good light for good output.  The screen is of very low resolution but considering other features and the price tag this is still a good buy.

    I am holding a Spice Mi-280, It is often showing insufficient memory when i try install applications. It has few company installed applications which is eating all the inbuilt memory.
    Pls suggest me how to uninstall the root applications.

      I will ignore Mi280 as already outdated, of A50 and A7 if its your budget go for A50 if you can buy A7 it has better resolution, battery life so far looks good. And you feel like holding this phone in your hands, very nice grip.
