Spice Mi-495 with 512MB RAM listed on Saholic for Rs. 10499

Spice Mi-495 Stellar Virtuoso is now listed on Saholic for just Rs, 10,499. In my previous article on Mi-495 I had mentioned the price could be around 11K to 12K however it’s close to the 10K range.

If the Mi-495 is priced at 10,499 then the first thing to look for is the RAM and as mentioned on the Saholic site it is 512MB. We were expecting a price of around 11 to 12K with 1GB RAM, however with 512MB it’s not a bad deal.

The handset weighs 150 grams with a 9.4 mm thickness. The TFT display screen is 4.5 inches with 960×640 pixels resolution. The handset is powered by a dual core processor. The handset competes with the Micromax A110 and also with iBall Andi 4.5h that comes with 1GB RAM, this one with 512MB for a much lesser price.

Recently we have seen many manufacturers coming out with dual core versions, an indication that quad cores are in the pipe line. But there is still a good price difference between 1GB RAM handsets and 512MB RAM. Spice Mi-495 has got a premium look, let’s see how it performs.

    Hi All,
    I have just bought Spice MI495.
    Its amazing…. touch & screen resolution is great…..
    even better than xperia go & samsung s duos with less price.
    one can say its 1700Mah battery should be 2000 Mah but in comparison of most branded phone its still higher then many other models.
    Look is great (i don’t want 5″ bulk Phablet)
    In My view its best deal with 10,300 rs. + free cover.
