Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Pushmail present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Spice Stellar 497 that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Spice Stellar 497 is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Spice Stellar 497 is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Spice Stellar 497 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Spice Stellar 497 will not even last me a week. The expandable memory of the Spice Stellar 497 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Spice Stellar 497 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.2 GHz is not that bad an option. Swift loading and overall smooth performance is every gamer's dream; and it comes true when you get the Spice Stellar 497 that packs in quad core processor. Even the lowest graphics games need RAM higher than this. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Spice Stellar 497 was its 4.5 inches display. The screen size of the Spice Stellar 497 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 3.2 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The small 4 GB internal storage of the Spice Stellar 497 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
