The Redmi 1S is the only smartphone in this price segment to flaunt a HD display. The Android One Dream UNO Mi-498, on the other hand, lags behind with a FWVGA (854×480 pixels) display. As for size, Spice s Android One smartphone has a 4.5-inch display, while the Redmi 1S has a 4.7-inch display.

On the storage front, Xiaomi s smartphone offers double the storage (8GB) compared to Spice (4GB). Both the devices however have a microSD card slot to expand the internal memory.

Cameras

On the photography front, Spice is offering a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. In comparison, Xiaomi has included an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Redmi 1S has a bigger battery in comparison to the Android One Dream UNO Mi-498. Where the former has a 2,000mAh battery, the latter has to do with a 1,700mAh unit.

Software

This is one department where the Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498 wins hands down. As a part of the Google Android One initiative, Spice s smartphone runs on the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and will also get regular Android updates. Xiaomi s smartphone, on the other hand, runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Though the company has promised a KitKat update, there is no current timeframe.

In terms of specifications, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S blows the Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498 right out of the water. It also has the added advantage of a lower price tag. But where Spice s smartphone excels is on experience. As one of Google s partners, Spice s smartphone runs on stock Android and will also get regular software updates.
