Key difference: The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a mid-range budget quad-core phone with a speed of 1.2 GHz. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1 GB of RAM. The phone features an 8 MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash. The phone also features a 5 MP front-facing wide angle secondary camera, also with auto focus. One of the newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it.

Spice Mobiles is an Indian-based mobile company that is part of S Mobility Ltd., which is in turn part of the Spice Group. The company has since expanded its operation to Nepal, Bangladesh, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. It aims to expand its geographical presence from Ivory Coast to Indonesia. However, as a mobile phone company based primarily in India, the company has to keep in mind the dynamic nature of their targeted market in mind. The Indian market is very price sensitive. Hence, the company has to be able to provide new and more or less the latest technology in a phone that is budget friendly. The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a phone that attempts to do just that.

The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a mid-range budget quad-core phone with a speed of 1.2 GHz. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1 GB of RAM. The phone features a 5.3-inch qHD IPS display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It is a dual-SIM phone and is 3G enabled on both SIMs, which is new.

However, the phone’s defining feature has to be its cameras. The phone features an 8 MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash. The phone also features a 5 MP front-facing wide angle secondary camera, also with auto focus. The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro is one of the first phones to feature such a powerful secondary camera especially in a budget smartphone category.

Another first in the budget smartphone category is that the phone features a 16 GB internal storage, in addition to external storage which is expandable up to 32 GB.

Nokia, the Finnish multinational communications and information technology corporation, is known for it highly durable mobile phones. However, with the increasing onset of smartphones, the sales of Nokia’s simple but durable phones started to drop. To offset this trend, Nokia tied up with Microsoft to launch a series of smartphones based on Microsoft’s Windows. This series of phones branded as Nokia Lumia run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 8.

One of the newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it. The phone is a decent enough piece of merchandise, especially considering its price. It features a 3.8-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-core 1 GHz Krait and a 512 MB RAM. It has an 8 GB internal storage capacity and an external storage expandable up to 64 GB.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has a 5 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, as well as a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The phone like most of the phones under the Lumia brand is available in a variety of bright colors, such as lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, and the usually white and black. In fact, the phone comes with back panels in these colors allowing the user to change the phone’s color every few days.

However, the phone has been criticized as looking a bit plasticky and cheap. The phone is also a bit on the heavier side. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from SpiceStellar.com, the Nokia website, techradar.com, and GSMArena.com.
