My New Phone: Spice CSL Mi410
*I supposed to write this article way back in September 2011. Pardon me for my such late post. Orz :-)*
Yeah. Finally, I have decided not to buy iPhone 4S yet.
The reason is very personal. I am not saying iPhone 4S is not good. It’s just that I was hoping for a redesigned iPhone and with a bigger screen, not just a bumped-up iPhone. And I also don’t want to pay for a phone that I will have to fork out another amount of money to buy a newer model with newer features such as LTE/4G, NFC or wireless charging next year.
So, what did I buy instead? It’s CSL Mi410. I am quite impressed with its specs and the price. It’s only RM799 in Malaysia and guess what, because I’ve covered CSL events before, bloggers are getting the special price. I will not reveal it here but it’s really a good deal. Thank you, CSL.
Here are the specs of CSL Mi410. Basically it is an OEM phone call Foxconn FB400 which Foxconn manufactured and being sold under different brand name across the world.
What’s my verdict? It’s a good buy. And if you are looking for a budget Android smartphone, this is really recommended.
