Finally #AndroidOne Smartphones have got launched in India. Spice has launched Dream UNO Mi-498 smartphone at the price of Rs 6,299 which is under the Android One program. Android One is a special program of Google under which companies have decided to sell Android smartphones with good features at a price around $100. Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 comes with Quad Core processor, Dual SIM option and many other good features. In this post you’ll get to know the features, quick review, specs of Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498 and even its comparison with some other low budget Android smartphones. Not only Spice, but Micromax and Karbonn have also launched their smartphone under the Android One program.
The most amazing thing about Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 and other smartphones launched under the Android One program is that all work on Android 4.4.4 operating system and these smartphones will very soon get the Android L update.
Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 comes with 4.5 inch IPS display screen having resolution of 480 X 854 pixels. According to the price, size of display screen of Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 seems to be good, but the resolution could have better better.
Processor, RAM and Memory
Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 comes with 1.3GHz Quad Core MediaTek processor. Xiaomi Redmi 1S priced at Rs 5,999 comes with Quad Core Snapdragon processor and this reason is making many people prefer Redmi 1S over the other low budget Android smartphones. I don’t think that Quad Core MediaTek processor is bad, but when comparison is done with Quad Core Snapdragon processor it may not be able to give the same type of performance.
Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 comes with 1GB RAM. It comes with internal memory of 4GB and one can get external memory up to 32GB. Asus Zenfone 4 A400CG, Asus Zenfone 4 A450CG and Xiaomi Redmi 1S come with internal memory of 8GB. Low internal memory is something which can be said to be one of the cons of the Android One smartphones launched by Spice, Micromax and Karbonn. I’m hoping that other companies will decide to provide internal memory of 8GB in their smartphones which they will be launching under the Android One program.
Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498 comes with rear facing camera of 5 megapixel and front facing camera of 2 megapixel. Camera features seem to be good enough according to the price which is around Rs 6,000. It’ll be interesting to check out that whether there is any difference in the camera quality of Android One smartphones launched by Micromax, Karbonn and Spice.
