  • yah im here to talk about, this cheapest & awesome phone, Im using this phone from 2.5 years, still now its good as new. Iam very rough to handle any of the device, even i broke my phone's display itself, with that broken display i have used this phone for 1 year, that crack is not effecting on touch any more. and the battery is very poor at the starting only but maintaining the same backup capacity still now, it will comes up to 1 day for sure (every smartphone's is durable for 1 day only). no issues with any of the components. music is also very good at it. even i have played almost all common games it is running smoothly, I am really happy with this phone thanking to SPICE

  • After buying, I realised that it was the big mistake of my life. Handset gets hanged and even off on its own, even searching to a caller takes too much time, low battery life. In short a boring experience. Please please please .............. don't buy at all rather go for monochrome phone.

The only Good Thing is that It was powered by Android 2.3.4 otherwise Display hangout/Touch Prob/Camera Quality Poor/Display Res Not satisfactory/ GPS have no Accuracy and there are so many factors which is very disappointing for this type of product. But some solution are given as I M doing for this device is,1) if you have Touch Problem: You have to Reset your phone (Hard Reset). 1st switch off your phone then Press Vol UpKey+Middle Joy Key+Power Button to on your Phone(Do not release the Button until your Phone Turns on), A black Screen with blue text may appear, select Item Test press middle key, Select Touch Panel Calibration Do Calibration. It may Solve your Problem. If you wel known to the entire menu then do some necessary steps for your problem.Ask Me if you have any problem with this set, i will try to make it solve.

  • my mobile working very slow plz. advise me for solve this problem

  • This mobile is very worst Please dont buy, When I bought it it hangs many time, I sent this to company again its performance is poor. I request all please dont buy spice company mobiles

  • good touch and net

  • my spice mi 280 is totaly hange ....all fuctions working very slow .....plz help me. ....as soon as posable

  • touch is very soft and very fast

  • Not so bad ...

  • i love it good phone touch is good all function good internal memory is low over all phone is good

  • Did good amount of research before I zeroed in on this phone in Jan 2012. No doubt its a feature rich phone. Crystal clear calls, Music & Video playback are its main features. Cons being Low Internal memory, Poor Camera Resolution, No Flash. Most of the credits would go for ANDRIOD OS for the user features it provides when compared to conventioanl phones. SPICE may have to rethink on price tag for this model or fix the drawbacks considering massive advancements in mobile computing devices recently.

  • A good phone but its design is not much impressive.It has very low internal memory which will be full after downloading 4-5 good games.Its sound quality is little low.It has a little low processor.It does not hava a good touch which an andriod phone really require...........Samsung galaxy y or pocket are both better than this phone.

  • i love this cell...all featurs is so good but the internal memory is low then other android cells...and it's can't sport the hindi language....i humbly request to spice company please make it most popular to include this featurs......

  • one of the best mobile, and good touch screen, because my screen damaged also working good nicely. internal memory low but other than the cell is fantastic. only the problem is that Skype is not installed which I request to Spice, but other apps working nicely. over all good..........

  • I luv u

  • one of the best fone im using it and very good touch responce but there is only one problem that the internal memory is low

  • I bought this phone 5 months ago,from the next day I facing lot of problems.Mainly battery back up,it doesn't gives atleast two hours.The second one is receiving of net signal.In the five months i visited three times the spice service centre,they repaired it three times.but they are not replacing the new phone.Still the phone had lot of problems.worst phone in the world and worst service provider.My kindly suggestion to manufacturers dont make this type of worst phone.

  • This is the worst phone i had ever used in my life... low battery, bad touch response, bad design, low space, bad camera....

  • After one month from date of buying, touch problem strated.next I went to spice service centre in surya comlex at ludhiana to hand over cell to concerned person.I am extremely disappointed to say that nobody bothered about my phone.after 50 days he changed my set with anothers set. & same problem remains standing.now I disbelieve the spice company and service concerned person. THISSET IS THE WORST OF ALL SETS. I reqest u not to buy it even at free of cost. This was my experience in life. Thanks.

  • Hi, I'm using this device since feb'12. This is really very good handset. it's value for money. What r u expecting in this price tag ? The built quality is not good but Spice is known for it and you should be aware of it before buying.

  • Its really a junk. I ve been using (rather not using) this phone since jan 12. One month was ok n i was excited too. But then it all started n mind u, without it falling down or getting wet n any other reason u cud think of. First casualty was its touch. total non responsive at times. second was the camera. Forced closed every time. Next was the master sim card which went wonky n now doesnt read even, n i use it as a single sim phone. Response of customer care pathetic. Now even the charging socket has developed problems. Finally i ve started using my previous phone basic keypad phone. At least i can make n receive calls with that.

  • My phone bought about 2 months back is having similar problem with touch screen. Till now, it worked well with all features, and battery life is less which I understand on it being smart type. I had good experience with 3G, wifi, video call, camera etc. I have done rooting sometime back but not sure if this is any reason. I feel this could be because of software only or weather if humidity could impact capacitive touch screens

  • Strange.. this problem seems to match with mine, and for last two weeks the phone has been having similar touch screen issues. Is it because of the weather (humidity), we have issue with touch screen? It is random. I also thought of some android apps I downloaded maliciously doing this. I supected this at software level only, as at times (after lock or restart on few attempts), touch screen works for some clicks, but again.. repeats..

  • Really vary poor services provided by spice. I have sent to it services center due to touch screen problem. But the time was taken to get it done is too much.

  • Horrible! truely deeply plz never ever try to purchase idiot spice phone,they are just trying to make profit by bluffing costomer huh crazy company...every features mention are not working properly,cant access to internet 2G forget about 3G .....my advice 2 u all plz dnt purchase this stupid phone.

  • My set in touch problem

  • the worst phone in the world. the features are just for showing.not a single feature is working properly.even if you want to call urgently u can not make that.it is quite not working in humidity area.

  • the worst phone in the world. the features are just for showing.not a single feature is working properly.even if you want to call urgently u can not make that.it is quite not working in humidity area.

  • All feture are good,it is value 4 money.BUY NOW.

  • worst ever phone I had ever used. Incoming calls can't be picked up specially in cold and high humidity area. Lock can't be open in the same situation. Its a waste of money completely. But, its for sure that it will work properly at least for 1 week from the date of purchase..............

  • Hi all, I'm also using the same phone from past 3Months...! Camera is not working properly(some reddish color included in pics), When a incoming call receiving on the phone you will hear first ring only after that it will goes to silent mode only ringer will not work. Through the SIM net connectivity is not working till now but WiFi is working(thank God). I request you to not to buy this phone. Simply waste of Money..

  • this is a worst phone in its price range the build quality is very poor... battery heat up .. after surfing 10 min .. instead of these u should buy micromax a55 or buy galaxy y ...

  • Never buy the product definitely it will make u cry

  • it was my 1st & also last phone from spice mobile. very bad phone experience...i m using it from last 3 months...now camera not working at all...touch screen problem...after forcefully shaking device 2-3 times than touch screen will work...once phone will lock...touch screen will not work until u shake it again...battery will showing improper status & suddenly power off device even battery status is good, than phone need to be charged again...GPS is inaccurate...dust is entering inside the screen...it can't be clean...i did reset factory setting but no solution

  • This phone also has a problem with call drop, sometimes after 2-3 minutes calls are dropped and sometimes need to restart the device to make a call.

  • Have been using the device for last 2 months. Sometimes it restarts with no reasons. Compass does not work at all, tried with so many apps. No support for flash. Phone is very slow. But in this price range all is OK except the non working of Compass. If anybody can help me out in this regards then it would be appericiated.

  • very ginius mobile. the net speed is very high.

  • hi All, I bought this phone approx 3 months ago. Looking at the price the functionality is definitely commendable. I was looking for cheap but good to use Dual Sim Android V2.3 handset and this model just fitted the bill. It has a very responsive touchscreen backed by a quick processor. However I am facing a problem with Touch Screen right now and not able to figure out. I searched the web for phones with similar problems and to find a fix. There seems to be loads of touch screen issues for handsets from HTC, Samsung and every popular brand that has touch screen has a problem listed out there. The problem is typical. When I try to unlock the phone, it just doesn't respond to touch. After several trial it finally responds and then behaves erratically, randomly selecting icons and doing all sorts of disturbances. Then finally it settles down and start responding to any touch input in a normal way. If any of the users have faced this problem and have been able to resolve it please respond to this post. I hope someone from SPICE reads this and can suggest a fix. thanx :)

  • If so.....go to consumer forum and lodge a complaint.....

  • Even I too had same problem, for some extent the problem is solved ..... Give to spice customer service ....... You can even, complain it to spice marketing department. Go to spice website, put all your queries and send it through email. Let them know, why and where spice mobiles, loose there value. Every, who have purchased it. This is the only solution.

  • Brought yesterday ie on 04.06.12. returned it today :D GPS never works on this set. I ignored a opinion in XDA-DEVELOPERS. and paid price for it. If GPS works this fone is really good, and worth for its money Rs 4500.

  • if you keep your expectations for what you are paying(5k) this is the best phone..

  • its a useless phone,dont buy this phone .no matter its specifications are good but quality is very bad .its battery backup is poor .wifi has problems,internet is slow,moreover spice costumer care response is very bad they kept phones with themselves for months. in my view, spice company is a third class company NEVER BUY SPICE PHONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOK FOR OTHER PHONES

  • This is the most third class phone...Problem of this phone is battery problem,touch problem,it is getting hot when using net & wi-fi..just dont buy this phone...spice is one of the third class company...

  • Its a very good handset,its worth for money,its haveing very good features.

  • I bought Spice Mi-280 a week ago and I am facing problems with its touchscreen already. It auto locks the screen and then you just cant open it because the screen doesn't respond to your touch. It is VERY frustrating. If you need to call someone urgently you cant. If you want to sms someone urgently, you cant. The screen just doesnt respond to your touch/tap/punch/anything at all. Moreover there is only one service center for spice phone in my city and that too is quite far away. It has been an extremely pathetic experience. And I paid 5000/- for this terrible handset.

  • this is very slow. its not for me I want to change my hand set mi 280

  • per day i attend 50 to 70 calls but this mobile maximum 40 calls go to low battery battery backup is very poor....

  • hi friends please help me in deciding which phone to buy i m confused b/w idea cellular id280 and spice mi280. idea phone is single sim but unlocked i can use any sim and also getting lots of benefits means it is very cheap in comparison with spice mi 280 and also it is better company then spice and as it is an international brand it has lot of custom roms available on net and in spice the os is unstable and creating lot of problems with so many people and spice company do not offer any improved rom.

  • no no never do that mistake , other wise u will realise it later

  • Hi i have bought this phone on March 2012 for Rs 5200 from chandigarh . i want to share my experience with every one. its a cheapest dual sim android phone with good config which supports native 3g video calling , i hvae tested it it works fine . wifi works fine . Gps take lot of time to acquire but still works ok. Problems 1 First problem is of its two to three time rebooting as u will restart the phone as it hangs usually during touch operation at least 7-8 times. God nows why it happen . 2 After booting it some times will not show ur sim directory, for that u need to reboot it again , and wait for another 2 to 3 reboots , so it get starts. 3 third experience of this phone i want to share is , that it restart during active calls , ur call drops , and after rebooting it show no network for some time @ (battery charged to to 100% ). 4 i experience humming noise problem during the call. GOD knows how TELECOM Standard Org. pass such Stupid & Weak Arch of mobile manufacturers. i have sent my phone twice to service center till now. GOD knows what will happen .

  • Starting of mi-280 with two to three reboots is a common problem , not a problem its habit of this phone. i become use too of it. u should be too.

  • Check with your service provider about the bandwidth that you SIM works on. maybe the phone does not handle it. check the specs here.

  • I have purchased this phone about three months back due to 3G and video calling support but i coudn't use them as all operators viz. airtel, vodafone, aircel tell me that your mobile doesn't support these features. why ? at the same time this is preloaded with a lot of applications which i don't want to use but it doesn't install them. please help me to uninstall them too.

  • my one sim is not working. but it starts work after 2 3 reboot. I went to service center but they said phone is fine. I have tried different sim but problem stays. all the sim works on other mobile though
