Many Indian handset manufacturers have come out with interesting feature-packed handsets to challenge the dominance of global brands. One company that seems to be raising the bar is Spice Mobiles. Its latest phablet, the Spice Pinnacle FHD Mi-525 offers a crisp 5.0-inch full-HD display and comes packed with a quad-core processor.But is that enough to compete in a market that is presently dominated by brands like Micromax, Karbonn and Samsung? We try to find out in our review.
Our immediate reaction after we took the Spice Pinnacle FHD Mi-525 out of the box was that it looked familiar. Spice has opted for a minimalistic design for the Pinnacle FHD, which has nothing unusual.The design of the Spice Pinnacle FHD is simple, with no hardware keys on the front panel.
The front of the phone is dominated by the 5-inch full-HD display with three capacitive keys lined up below the screen for Settings, Home and Back. However, the backlight doesn’t illuminate even when the display is on till one touches them, which we found a bit odd.
