Good news for owners of Spice Mi-425, they can now upgrade the Android 2.3 OS to Android 4.0 (ICS). The Spice website had already mentioned that the Spice Stellar Mi-425 handset will get the ICS update and now here it is.

But hey hold on, as per the latest updates on the Spice Facebook page, the ICS version will be available only from the Spice service centers. For now there are no OTA (Over the Air) updates available, so users will need to visit the nearest Spice service center and get the upgrade done for free.

Here are some reasons why you should upgrade the Spice Mi-425 to Android 4.0

  • The handset will get an enhanced user interface.
  • The battery performance / management will improve.
  • Overall Performance improvement.
  • As of now on the Android 2.3 version if you are using the Spice Mi-425 for downloading data the other SIM gets inactive. With the ICS update both the SIM’s will be active when data is in use.

Users can find the nearest service center using the URL. It is disappointing to know that the OTA updates are not available which would have made life easier for many users. I believe Spice kept that option out as the OTA ICS update could lead to many issues and would be best if the customers get the update done from the service center.

Now before you head on to the nearest center to spice up your Stellar Mi-425 with ICS, don’t forget to take a backup.
