Spice mi 500 doesn't have some imp sensors(forgor which ones),bad camera,too heavy,no root(atleast for a while,as people say),512 mb ram(while a21 is 1gb cuz it has 581 free for apps and it can install apps directly to external storage,while pn mi500 only some apps can ve moved to external),it looks way big and bulky,but who has time for watching a 12 hr video lol ?
And yeah A21 jas qHD resolution .

yeah u r right but i req long battery as this is not my calling phone i use basically to navigation and watch movies so i req big battery big display
as i tested 2 mi 500 i get following
more than 5 days stand by with both 2g sim on
12hr video play back on single charge
5 hrs music playback on phone speaker drains 15-18 % of battery so roughly 30 hrs
i have karbon 18 also if i start gps for navigation phone doesn't last for half day also
1500 mAh karbon a18 can play video for just 3 hrs 45 min just giving comparison

this is the only site selling it check specification they diff on diff sites if u purchase it give us review i am happy to purchase that
one also i can tred my 1 mi500 also if its good

A21 has sanpdragon S4, but its S4 play.. its based on the older A5 architecture n is built on 45nm process.. so its not even close to being as fast as an S4 plus/pro SoC which are present on newer gen phones..

Saheb • 4 days ago −
Its not qHD.. its WVGA.. Anyway, the specs seem good.. now only if it had a bigger battery

Hi Karbonn A21 phone which has got 4.5 inch qHD Display according to the karbonn website ..

Hi Karbonn A21 phone which has got 4.5 inch qHD Display according to the karbonn website ..

But in the specs tab it's mentioned as WVGA. Not sure which is the correct one.

No one is sure yet. Igyaan's have the phone so we will be getting a review soon.So all our doubts would be cleared
Atleast you get a dual core snapdragon for less than 10k.
A9+ with same specs(512mb ram,4"screen)comes for less than 9k in local stores.
All we can do now is wait

ya that will be nice if someone reviews it
i have my eye on a9+ but battery is only 1450 mAh , i dont know, how much it will stand on dual core and ips screen
i think within 6 months we will have more lots of choices and as companies releasing so many handset so fast
hope so we get the best of all

If you don't already have the recovery.img file,to get it, first install terminal emulator on your phone(Your phone must be rooted for this!), then launch and type in:

$ su
# cat /proc/mtd

This should give you an output like:

dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 00040000 00020000 "misc"
mtd1: 00500000 00020000 "recovery"
mtd2: 00280000 00020000 "boot"
mtd3: 04380000 00020000 "system"
mtd4: 04380000 00020000 "cache"
mtd5: 04ac0000 00020000 "userdata"

Now, check for the "recovery partition" , that is which "mtd" it's on. Here it's on mtd1, it might be different for your phone. With that info type in the terminal emulator(You should have your sdcard inserted before proceeding):


# cat /dev/mtd/mtd1(OR whichever mtd YOUR "recovery" is on) > /sdcard/recovery.img

Now upload that recovery.img file at http://builder.clockworkmod.com and see if the cwm works out for the Mi 500.

I guess you need to use # cat /proc/emmc instead of # cat /proc/mtd as this is returning empty, however this does not give the location of recovery atleast in my device ! others can report their experience

Wink Karbonn A21
I would suggest people who are thinking of buying Mi 500 to take a look at A21 cuz someone posted this -
Today purchased the A21 from the local store here in Kolhapur @ Rs. 9,900/- Giving the details here which I think may help you a lot for the review. Also, I think this may clear many doubts from the readers.
1. The Overall build quality is OK but I can tell you that its not that much impressive as compared to MMX A100 – My previous phone. Doesn’t give that premium look at all. Although its quite light weight and handy for sure.
2. Battery is 1800 mAH which seems to be good enough for a single or even 1.5 days for the heavy user. Definitely will last longer than A100.
3. Coming to the system, the Processor is Qualcom Snapdragon clocked at 1.2 GHz. The Chipset is MSM 8625 with Dual Core ARMv7 processor.
4. GPU is Adreno 203.
5. RAM is 512 MB out of which Available RAM is 386 MB. Application Storage memory is 581 MB (Its not RAM) & Internal Storage is 2.57 GB.
6. Screen size is 4.5 Inches & the plus point is that yes its qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels.
7. Rear Camera is 5.0 MP with 2592 x 1944.
8. An Tu Tu Benchnark score was 5247 whereas Quadrant Standard gave a Benchmark score of 2502.
9. 720p HD videos played well & smoothly without any lags. (Didn’t played on my MMX A100) Yet to try the 1080p full HD videos. Will update it tomorrow.
10. HD games like ASPHALT and even heavy HD games like DEAD TRIGGER, CS PORTABLE were played without any lags at all. Quite amazing experience as compared to MMX A100.
11. Loudspeaker quality is OK but not as loud as on A100. Headphone quality is average.
12. All the Sensors are there like Light, Proximity and G-Sensor. No Magnetic Sensor though.
13. 5.0 MP Camera is able to record videos at 720 x 480 HD resolutions only. Camera quality is a little bit higher though as compared to A100. Yet to check the Picture quality at night though.
14. Multi touch tester shows 5 Multi-touch points (Same as A100 but) but I can tell you that the touch response is very good as compared to most of the devices in this range. Awesome.
15. I think KARBONN haven’t done any Customization at all for ICS. Standard OS is as it is.
Will update in couple of days about the other details when I go through it. I think its enough for the people to make the decision.
I think its worth the cost especially looking at the qHD Screen, 1.2 GHz Dual Core, Flawless performance, etc.
