Spice Mi 720 Tablet Review

Spice Mi 720Indian manufactured tablets are real cheap and make a big deal. In competition market of tablets when Reliance tablet was launched we thought that it is the cheapest tablet available in the Indian market. One week after, Bharti Airtel announced the Beetel Magiq tablet which outburst as the cheapest Android tablet in India. The news of Beetel Magiq tablet and Reliance tablet are not more than a month old and Spice Mobile has mounted a strong challenge with the new Spice Mi 720 tablet.

To start with its configuration it has got 7 inches HVGA touchscreen display with 800 x 480 resolutions and with multi-touch input method. It runs on Snapdragon S1 800 Mhz processor which delivers a seemingly faster app loading and browsing experiences. It includes 168 MB of RAM along with that it includes 4 GB of ROM memory.

This tablet supports 3G and so it can also be used as a smartphone to make calls via SIM card. Spice claims that it can deliver superior graphics quality with the addition of Adreno 200 graphic processor. The inclusion of 3G means that you can bag a top speed of 7.2 Mbps using the HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76 Mbps data speed on browsing, mails and download on this tablet. Along with that the connectivity options included in this tablet are Wi-Fi, GPRS with EDGE technology. The Bluetooth 2.1 can be used for wireless file transfer. The addition of USB tethering and Wi-Fi tethering means that you can create your own wireless network. The AGPS added to this tablet provides GPS navigation.

It includes 2 mega pixel camera on rear side and a VGA camera on the front side which can be used for video calls and video chat. One thing I must clearly say that Indian manufactured tablets mostly comes with Android 2.2 and 2.3, the Spice Mi 720 is on the same lines with Android 2.2 Froyo operating system.

Spice Mi 720 adds gravity sensor which goes through shift in position, tilting and other inclination with respect to the earth. This allows users to play games such as racing by tilting the tablet back and forth, left and right. This tablet also includes a memory card slot where in you can insert your microSD card slot supporting up to 32 GB of memory. Apart from that it includes 155 MB as the internal storage space. This tablet can perform task like online gaming, downloading multimedia files, video playback, audio player and various other functions. it includes a supported HTML browser with Adbove Flash Player for uninterrupted streaming of online videos from YouTube. Along with that Android Market is tip away from downloading various application on your tablet.

The Spice has powered this tablet with 4200 mAh battery. And it with that battery fully charged you would be able to get 7 or 8 hours of battery on a single charge.

Spice Mi 720 tablet is available for online purchase at Letsbuy.com which is the only vendor selling it. It’s priced at Rs 11,990 and offers cash on delivery option with delivery in three to five working days. Along with that its comes with one year full warranty on the tablet and six months warranty on the accessories.Spice Letsbuy listing

In many ways, by going through the specifications of this tablet, Spice Mi 720 clearly dominates Reliance tab and Beetel Magiq.

  7. Hello everyone!

    I bought a tablet Mi720 but the problem is that it suddenly stops working and hangs up and nothing then works. I think it might be a software problem. Can anyone guide me how to fix this?

  8. Thanks for the helpful content. It is also my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an very long latency phase, which means that indication of the disease might not emerge until 30 to 50 years after the 1st exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, that is certainly the most common style and impacts the area throughout the lungs, will cause shortness of breath, upper body pains, and also a persistent cough, which may cause coughing up body.

    • You can ready out comments here and furthermore check out this product on your hands at some store. If you feel that is well and good for your work then go with it.

  16. also please suggest a tab with voice call,video call, gps,a-gps , capacitive touch screen

    by d way lowest priced one please :D

    • There are lot many low priced tablets below 15k, we have gone through comparison articles for few of the tablets available in India, check out our portal.

  17. one aspect of this tab that dint get any mention is the gps of this device
    does it work fine?
    please do comment on that owners
    n also wat about d performance?

  18. I had bought this tablet from Flipkart on Sept 30. I found that the androidmarket does not allow several apps to be downloaded on this tablet like skype for video calls, etc. After working for about a week the WiFIi has run into problems and is not getting enabled. Neither is the WiFi tethering getting enabled. The service centre has certified problem as pertaining to the hardware and the dealer needs to be approached for a replacement. The orginal manufacturer of this device is unknown and quality of this low priced tablet remains suspect.

    • That is where those tabs are limited when compared to higher price tablets. I am not saying to go with any higher priced tabs but the fact is lower priced tablets comes with same features just which you have experienced.
      BTW,
      the Flipkart has 30 days replacement warranty. Go with it.

  19. Mobile Tv can work on this tab?

  20. but this table is out of market all of sudden, i searched today all over but could not find it, even online shore such as flickrart etc shows “out of stock”, i went to spice showroom, but even they dont have any idea.

  21. I bought Mi-720 recently.
    It is a great device but there are a few issues
    1. Wifi does not have an option for connecting to proxy, even though a friend also has mobile running “Froyo 2.2.2″ and he has that option.
    2. Applications that are downloadable on my friend’s mobile running froyo 2.2.2, show unavailable on the android marketplace for Mi-720. I would like to install sygic but it wont.

    I guess custom roms will fix it. Now just waiting for developers to get their hands on it.

    RomManager also doesnot support this, that’s acceptable since its a new device.

    A wonderful device otherwise. A good buy.

  22. Hi, As per the spiceglobal site this tab has 2GB RAM and 4GB ROM, but in some sites they have mentioned that it has only 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM. Which information is correct? How to check whether it has 2GB RAM and 4GB ROM?

    • Actually, it has only 161 MB RAM. Chk App Quick System Info in Android Market! I spoke to FLipKart replacement department, and they say 256 MB, but some RAM extracted for Phone Contacts and messaging.

      • As always some of the RAM is eaten up by the processor, so that doesn’t count. Like in PC if you have 512 MB of RAM, it will show only 488 MB, the same is the case here, but there is much difference from 256 to 161.

    • 2Gb vs 2 GB For those who don’t understand the difference between 2Gb and 2GB.
      2GB = 2 GigaBytes ie 2048 MegaBytes(MB)
      on the other hand
      2 Gb = 2 GigaBits ie 256 MegaBytes(MB) [ 2048/8 = 256 ]

      as 1 Byte = 8 bits

  23. Does it support HD video play back? 720p or 1080p?

    • What more you can expect from a 12,000 tablet?? Even though they specify in specifications, but in reality with those tablets its not at a possible to get 720p or 1080p HD video playback.

  24. I got this tab too. Turns out it cannot support video chat and video calls. Confirmed with the spice service center. i managed to install skype 2.1 for android (search for apk on google) but cant make video calls, voice calls work fine. Market will not allow you to download video apps as this tab doesnt support that feature. Try to find the apps apk online.

  25. hi, i just brought one for my wife. but i dont know how to put in my gsm sim card into it. do i have to cut my sim like one has to do for ipad?

    • I don’t think you have to cut your SIM card. For brief procedure check out the manual guide provided with the kit or else if that not helps you out then contact the customer care of Spice.

    • Hi Rishi,
      i have this tab and you can insert the normal sim in it, i used bsnl 3g normal sim, but for ipad it is known as micro sim which is not needed.

      ashish

    • To insert sim, open the sim card slot lid at the bottom of the device. Push the sim card in with the contacts facing down and the trimmed edge going in first. You then just have to push it in until there is a click sound. This device has very low internal memory and plus I am not able to play games well. It does not support Skype on android as I also found out. What good are 2 cameras if you cant load skype? The only thing good about it is the internet.

  26. what about the music output quality and video clarity

  27. Its a wonderful tablet…..features are nice……………only thing that i dint liked about the device is its heavy weight

  28. can i make video call on it with skype..?

    • yes you can make the video call!

      • thanks NEAL..

      • I bought this tablet from saholic, but i am not able to download skype, it says unkown device,
        Also this tab comes with google talk but that only supports text chat, no voice or video calling.

        I dont know whether this tab can do voice/video chat.
        let me know how ti install skype so that i can do video chat.
        regards,
        ashish

        • So did you contact the customer care of Spice?
          According to its specifications it has front camera so its possible to do video calls.

          Contact Customer Care since its under warranty.

        • They do not have any customer care so i contacted service centre and they told they will check with company and will come back, they do not technical details.

        • Worst manual ever seen.

          ashish

          • What more you can expect from cheap tablets.
            Good that they have a manual, I thought its not included in the kit.

        • i have use this tab mi 720 not any option make video call i cotact cos…care not sati..answar

    • you need to visit the nearest electronic store

      • spice service centre per purchage wale din bataya tha lekin usne do banakar nahi diya
        ye kaisi spice ki policy he jo ad kar ke sale kar rahe he wo hi nahi he to kahe ka bharosa
        company ke costmorecare per compland ki mail aayi jis bande ka no. aaya usko hi jankari nahi he
        na hi baad me usne aaj tak phone udaya
        dear spice incharge ……ye kya ho raha he
        pl…mail me

    • You can place order online too at their official page saholic.com.

  30. Thanks for the Response !!! Does this phone support 3g Video calling as it has Front VGA Camera !! and Is it feasible to compare Spice Mi720 with Beetel Magiq in terms of Performance and Features ???

    • Yes, you can have video calls using 3G with this tablet. If you ask me to choose among Beetel Magiq or Spice MI 720 then I would go with Spice MI 720.

      • deardear please conferm me how can make video call i am using this local tab not found video call option
        normaly dial a call no option show video call only show direct voice call
        so please conferm me
        thanks

  31. this is supports voice and video calling please inform

  32. Is the screen for this tab a Capacitive one or Resistive one ?? Please specify and how is the battery backup ??

  33. As per specs on Spice website and on saholic.com (Spice’s own site for e-commerce), Mi-720 has only 155 MB of internal memory. Even though apps can now be installed on Memory Card, they still need some amount of internal memory. This is a real bottleneck and will fill-up real quick as apps get added.

    In your review, you’ve said that it has 2 GB of system memory, which is incorrect.

  34. digital hand zooming is possible in this tablet ? pls replay

  35. I want to use this tablet out of indai (in other conuntry) is this possible? can we make call/sms and recieve call from this tablet?

  36. has anyone tried rooting this?? this seems to be a gud bargain!! any gud dev sites for rom/theme support? dont see this on Xda-forum!

    • its the new device, we need to wait for developers to get hang of it and I don’t think there would be update for this available.

  37. Indeed the best Tab offer by Indian Market…… Wish they could have added 1GHz processor instead of 800MHz rest all seems great in this Tab. Will buy this with in a Week.

    • Yes, it would have been better if it had 1 GHZ but still 800 Mhz is good.
      @ Ashish
      Tell us what do you feel when you buy this.

      • Dr Pramod Kashyap

        I bought it on 27th of Sept. Working like a charm. Screen is very responsive , I still have to find any negative for this price range.Much better option then Beetel and reliance.

        • HI Pramod,
          did you try for any video calling feature like skype or 3g video callling or any other way, does it support?

          thanks in advance,
          ashish

        • Dr Pramod Kashyap

          Hi Ashish , I haven’t tried 3g video calling as i dont have a 3g plan. Skype on android market says that this app is incompatible with your Tab.

        • Hi pramod, can you please tell me if can make 3g video calls with this TAB. I m also planning to buy one n want to confirm this feature before buying. Also does it support multi touch (pinch Zoom) function or not.

        • Hi Ramesh, I recently bought a 3G plan from airtel. I tried video calling from my mobile which worked fine, but when i put that SIM in my Tab , i could not find any option for Video calling, though 3G data transfer was working fine. I , in fact could not find any software which let me do video calling (though Tab has a front facing camera).
          I tried Skype, Yahoo, Nimbuzz .And Spice cutomer care is useless they don’t have any answer for technical queries.
          And yes it has multi touch. Pinch zoom works in photographs and internet sites also.

          • 3G video calls doesn’t work on this tablet.

          • Hello Mr.Dr Pramod Kashya can you tell me .flv and HD movies can be seen on this tab ??
            And 1080 pixel can be seen?

            Thanks in advance
            Malay Modi

  39. Spice Mi 720 seems to be the best tablet offered in India.

    Your review indictaes that this tablet supports 3G and can also be used as a smartphone to make calls via SIM card.

    Was this feature tested?

    Asus has developed PadFone tablet that combines tablet and smartphone in one unit. There is provision in the rear to accommodate the smartphone.

    Does Spice Mi 720 has similar provision?
