Spice Stellar Mi 425 is facing issues like screen dead while making calls and to restart screen either you need to connect charger or restart the phone by resetting device by taking out battery. Spice Mi 425 will be getting ICS update by July 2012 end, problems will be resolved.

Spice Mi425 Android 4.0.3 IceCream sandwich update: Spice has launched the ICS update for Spice Mi 425 but it is available only through service center [most of them are not well informed so they will say its not available]. Waiting until someone rip the update in a file so that you can flash it manually.

Custom ROM: Right now, there is no System firmware code is available for Spice Phones. This make it lot hard to create custom ROM for Spice Mi425. Developers have requested Spice to release source code but it looks like they are not interested in entertaining custom ROM developers. Do not flash Micromax or Karbonn build ROM on Spice Mi 425. We will update you as soon a working ROM will be available.

Proximity sensor Issue: Spice Mi425 has a stable firmware the only issue users are facing are screen goes out while calling and does not comes back. You need to restart or connect charger to get back the screen. There is a easy solution available for this, just key in *#36# and you will be getting a System control and test screen. Now, tap on Proximity sensor and tap on the button with Chinese text.  The issue will be resolved.

Modds: The launcher +[plus] pre installed with Spice Mi425 has some issue and its not available on Android market and developed only for Spice Phones. I would suggest installing Holo Launcher and Lock screen from Android market. This gives a great look and new User interface to Spice Mi425. Holo launcher is stable and has a ICS like look.

 Spice Mi 425 Benchmark test: We have tested Spice Mi 425 with Antutu Benchmark and got a score of 2900+ which is very competitive with Nexus S.

Spice Mi 425 games: I have tried to play some games and HD games like Shadow Gun, Dead Trigger, Blood and Glory are running fine on Spice Mi 425. Playing games heat up a phone a bit but do not fear. Just close the game for some and let it cool, you can start gaming again.
