The phone is heavy
Slightly costlier than competition
Spice Stellar Horizon was one of the first phablet (phone + tablet) to be announced by an Indian brand. However, by the time Spice launched it in the India market, most other Indian brands too came with their own 5 inch screen based smartphones with very similar specification and pricing.
The Spice Stellar Horizon has very healthy specification like a 5 inch display with 800x480 pixel resolution, 5 megapixel rear camera with flash, front camera, 1 Ghz dual core processor based chipset from Mediatek, 512 MB RAM and a 2400 mAh battery. Moreover, it is priced at Rs 12,499 which seems a little high as other Indian brands are offering such phones starting from Rs 9,999.
While specifications are healthy on paper, let's find out how it performs in real world scenario.
