The phone has support for two SIM cards and there’s 3G support as well. There’s a microUSB cable that acts as a charging source and it can also be used for transfering data to/from the phone. Wi-Fi connectivity is good and you get reception even where the signal is usually pretty weak, which is a good thing.
In terms of customisations and bundled apps, there’s only few of them. The theme is the only major component that’s been customised. There’s an app called NQ Mobile Security 6.0 Pro that offers some privacy and security features on the phone. There’s also a link to a news-entertainment portal within the apps listing.
The rear facing camera has a resolution of 5MP, which is quite decent for a still camera. It also has a front facing camera which is great for video conferencing. The camera quality is pretty poor with most images appearing blurry. It’s the same case with the front facing camera, except it’s OK because you won’t be using it to click photographs.

Videos are recorded in 3gp format. Surprisingly, video quality is decent and the frame rate smooth. The phone uses close to 2MB to record a 15 second clip. The phone comes with a decent-sized 1420mAh battery, which should keep the phone alive for just over a day with decent use.
Verdict and Price in India
A well built phone, the Stellar Craze (Mi-355)
Spice sells the Stellar Craze for Rs. 7,999, which is a bit more affordable than the Mi-425. The Spice Mi-425, on the other hand, is a bit faster and has a larger screen as well. It’s priced a bit more, with an MRP of Rs. 9,999. Buy the Stellar Craze if you’re looking for a well built, relatively simple phone with Dual-SIM functionality.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
