    Spice Stellar 360 Review


    Touch screen phones were once a dream of every people but now that dream has become reality, thanks to the market leader such as Samsung, Apple, Sony and HTC. While all company were trying hard to mark their existence with number keypad phones, Apple came with its touch screen phone and from that era touch screen came in to more importance. Now touch screen phone is so popular that hardly anyone uses phone with keypad. BlackBerry was one of the most popular keypad phone but with growing popularity of touch phones BlackBerry was left far behind in the market.

    Spice, the Indian manufacturer company is trying to put its hands in the market with touch and type featured phone. Phone has big screen for touch and keypad for simple operation of the phone. Spice Stellar 360 is the name of new flagship from Spice which will allow you to use your phone for both multimedia as well as professional. Spice has made good decision to launch this phone with very low price so definitely this phone will seek attention in the market.

    Let’s find out what Spice mobile has to offer to the market, but before that let's have a quick look at its highlights:

    • Android 4.2 JellyBean Operating System
    • Dual SIM
    • 3.5 inch capacitive touch screen display
    • 480 x 320 pixels resolution
    • 1.3 GHz dual-core processor
    • 512MB of RAM
    • Mali 400 GPU
    • 3.2 Megapixel rear camera with LED flash
    • 1.3 Megapixel front-facing camera
    • 4GB Internal memory, expandable upto 32GB using microSD card
    • 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS
    • 1500mAh battery

    Design and Packaging:

    Spice Stellar 306 is phone with touch and type feature, so it has good big screen as well as keyboard to make handy operation with the phone. As the price quoted for this phone is handy so the design part also falls in average section. Stellar 360 is designed with plastic body and by handling the phone anyone can feel that body is not so tough and rigid. Moreover it has glossy body which makes this phone to slip from hands easily. Sides of the phone are chromed plastic and feels like it is sandwiched between front and back panel of the phone. Front face of the phone is interesting as you will notice big 3.5inch screen with QWERTY keyboard associated below the screen.

    QWERTY keyboard and screen is separated by three capacitive Android short cut keys. If you are operating this phone you will definitely press that capacitive buttons quite often. Spice should have placed hardware button instead of capacitive touch buttons. Above screen is housed with earpiece, front camera and sensors which are found in almost all smartphones. Back of the phone is simple in looks and posses’ 3.2MP primary camera with no flash, below the camera lays Spice logo and loudspeaker of the phone. Coming to the sides of the phone, left side is kept bare it does not have any hardware keys on it and similarly top of the phone is also kept bare. Most of the smartphone is given with audio jack on the top but Spice has something new to provide.

    MicroUSB and audio jack of the phone is given on the down side of the phone. Volume rocker button and power lock switch falls on the right side of the phone. Overall the design of the phone is simple and good because no company can provide super strong designed phone at such a low budget.

    Display / Screen:

    Letís see what Spice has planned to provide in its display section. Spice has carefully and smartly offered display of 3.5inch with the resolution of 480x320 pixels and with very low pixel density. Low resolution and low pixel density will not produce good display output so it is understood that display of the phone is very weak. Low resolution leads to produce poor viewing angle and accurate colors moreover it will also result in color wash when phone is tilted. You comfortable to view the screen but if you are watching videos in group then only person on the perpendicular to the phone will enjoy the video rest will enjoy shadowed and dark display. All the BlackBerry QWERTY phones has same resolution which Spice has offered but BB produces good display properties wit same resolution and Spice has failed to offer that feature. We can also say that all BlackBerry phones are priced much higher than Stellar 360 so they produce good display too.

    OS and UI:

    Stellar 360 is running on Android Jellybean 4.2.2 with little modification and little extra personalization. UI of the phone will be no different because all MediaTek powered phone has same UI features. Camera UI is also same as provided by MediaTek and remains common on all the smartphone powered by MediaTek. Phone comes along with pre-installed apps like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, BBM and many more. Phone will not be updated to latest OS version of Android which is very disappointing.

    Camera Quality:

    Spice has introduced 3.2MP primary camera in its new flagship which is not so impressive but falls in normal section. As all know 3MP camera cannot produce super bright and super clear images as the captured images has resolution which is very low. Same was observed in Stellar 360 too, a captured image appears good but not impressive. Daylight imaging comes okay but low light images are very poor with 3MP camera of Stellar 360. Stellar 360 should have been powered with atleast 5MP camera but considering the price which is quoted for this smartphone 3MP looks to be the best configuration.

    You can take video at 480p as well as 720p but HD recording will not appear like HD. 480p video looks clear but again not so perfect which one would expect as 480p. Rear camera is not so impressive so we can conclude how powerful front camera of the Stellar 360 would be. We can say front camera of the phone is just to fulfill the necessity and wants of the users that their Stellar 360 has front camera too.

    Core of the phone is powered by MediaTek MT6572 chipset and is quite obvious also because all the budget phones are powered by MediaTek chipset or Broadcom chipset. Chipset has configuration of 1.3GHz dual-core processor and 512MB RAM. Configuration of the phone is perfect for budget phone segment. Same configuration on smartphone once was priced at 30,000 rupees but now with technological advancement, we are able to get this same configuration in budget. Along with processor and RAM, Stellar 360 has powerful Mali 400 GPU so now you can play games and watch HD movies on your phone easily.

    Processor and RAM will serve you with best performance when it comes to computing on your phone. Internal storage of the phone is 4GB from which only 2.59GB is user accessible and can be expanded with the help of memory card. Phone is also featuring with dual-SIM feature so now enjoy two SIM function easily on your Stellar 360.

    Battery Backup:

    Battery of the phone is powered with 1500mAh battery which smartly positioned. Spice Stellar 360 has dual-core processor, low resolution display so consumption of the battery is not much. 1500mAh battery will serve you for longer duration with one charge making Stellar 360 to have good backup. Average user or heavy user both will be pleased with the battery stamina of the phone.
