Spice S-940 Mobile Phone

It is fashionable with a touch of class with the shiny and lined metal finish. The large 2.4-inch TFT LCD looks very attractive and clear with 65K colors and a resolution of 240x320 pixels.The five way nav-pad’s directional buttons are a little too slim to access for someone with large fingers. It took a while getting used to. The center select button doesn’t depress too well and seemed to be a bit off center and hence made an annoying ‘clik’ every time it was pressed. Even the process of pressing it was uncomfortable.The alphanumeric keypad is large and well spaced out.A microSD card slot is located on one side of the handset and a mini USB, universal port on the other. The 2 megapixel camera is located at the rear with a single LED for the flash.

Features and Performance

Spice has gone with a Java-based OS exactly like you’d find in a Chinese mobile handset. It’s quick, colorful and easy to navigate - however, a few of the features are a bit odd. For instance, when I changed the Time/Date settings to a 12 hour clock and I had to either Schedule an SMS to go out or set an Alarm, I was required to enter the time in 24 hour format.From a Melody Composer to an Image Editor with plenty of settings, there are quite a few media options available with the S-940. The music player has a flashy interface with EQ presets for audio adjustments. The audio quality is not too bad but the decibel level is just too low. The earphones attached to the hands free kit were not too comfortable for me personally but I’m sure it won’t be too much of an issue for most. But with the volume being so low, I can’t say it was a good overall audio experience, especially when it came to drowning out the daily commute's shrieks and banter.
