Features and specifications of Spice Coolpad Mi-515

Spice Coolpad Mi-515 full features, specs, price and availablity in India
Design and Display: The handset comes with a 5-inch capacitive touch screen. It has a resolution of only 960x540 pixels, which is a disappointing factor. The phone looks very slim with a thickness of 9.9mm only and weighs 161 grams. So, it is very comfortable to carry. Menu, Home and Back are three capacitive buttons below the front side. On the right side of the phone, you can see volume rockers.

Memory and storage: Coming to memory capabilities, the Spice Coolpad Mi-515 houses an internal memory of 4 GB which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. Moving on, the phone is equipped with 1GB of RAM which offers crash-free multi-tasking. Using the available memory, you can store a lot of apps, games, songs and other files.

Operating System and Processor: The Spice Coolpad Mi-515 runs on Google's Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS. Under the hood, it is equipped with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. So, the performance of the device should be sans hiccups. Spice Coolpad Mi-515 launched in India

Connectivity: The connectivity features are very important in any smart device. For connectivity purpose, Spice Coolpad Mi-515 has a lot of features including 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and A2DP. It also supports GPS and A-GPS.

Camera features: The phablet features a 5 -megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash at the rear. To make video calls, there is a 0.3MP (VGA) shooter in the front. I personally feel that the company could have provided atleast a 2MP front-facing camera.

Sensors and other features: The Spice Coolpad Mi-515 sports a couple of sensors including accelerometer, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. A 3.5mm audio jack and FM Radio are also present. The company claims that the audio output is great. The audio quality is high due to the DTS sound technology.

Battery features: The all-new Spice phablet comes with a 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery. It is expected to provide a decent battery backup. There is no official word on its battery strength.
