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 VOIP Support, Pushmail present in this device. I strongly recommend the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 when it comes to easy-to-use keyboard that's small enough to pack away smartly but big enough to offer convenience while typing. The battery of this phone would be okay only if you are fine being on a constant quest for charging options within half a working day. If you are a road warrior like me then you better rethink your choice of device. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 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 Horizon Mi-500 is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The phone is very easy to take with you because of its size but I struggle a little while typing due to the keys placed very close to each other. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I will need to delete or transfer photos every week if I choose this Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 with its small storage space.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I feel the graphics are so vivid and the text so clear, that I am hooked on to the 5 inch display for my gaming and reading pleasure. Gaming is really a turn off on this 1 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. Dealing with lags and slow load time really makes me impatient when it comes to gaming. An internal RAM this low isn't capable of handling any level of multitasking or gaming. Smartphone storage with such low capacity even for basic apps and programs is really irrelevant. The battery does last for 3-4 hours of a graphic-heavy game session, however immediately after this I need to put the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 on charging; really can't do much post the session.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 was its 5 inches display. The Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 has an amazing screen size, I feel. I can type only with one hand and can easily stick it in denim pockets. Though, I personally love my videos on a large screen. The Yes, 5 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 small 4 GB internal storage of the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
