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.
