Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498 Review: Another Good Budget Option

By on Email @exolete

Android One smartphones are a great choice for the budget buyer with good performance and are upgradable to Lollipop as well. The Spice Dream Uno too performs well, looks quite like the other Android One amigos but its back-cover creaks a bit. Now, this is not an isolated issue as we have heard other users complain as well. The online only model is hurting Android One smartphones, but they are still good options at their price point especially given the updates. These have decent cameras and good enough battery-life as well.

8.8

Just like other Android One smartphones, Spice Dream Uno too performs well and is upgradable, but this is my third choice behind Karbonn & Micromax offerings.
