Review of the product design of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1)

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1), the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

The Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is a size that is easy to put in your pocket. When you take it out of your pocket it hardly catches on the edge of your pants so you can take it in and out with ease.

Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1)

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

Since the body of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is lightweight, your hands will hardly ever feel sore or tired even after using the phone for a long time. Also, since it is a light and compact phone, it will still be easy to hold even when using a case.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

The size of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) makes it possible for you to reach the edges of the screen even when holding the phone in one hand. Being able to reach the edges of the phone even with a firm grip makes it an easy phone to use.

The size of the buttons on the App

As the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1)'s display buttons are generally small, you may end up pressing the wrong button if you don't pay enough attention. If you are not familiar with the operation, you may press the wrong button even if you try to be careful. The phone is not suitable for speed typing as it needs to be operated ever so carefully.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

You can type easily on the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) even with a tight grip. Even when typing at high speeds you can type freely without having to loosen your grip.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

It is difficult to not have typos with the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) because each button on the keyboard is quite small, and it is almost impossible to type fast with the device. With a device this size, it'd be better to switch to flick input so you can type faster.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

The display of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is somewhat small and this can make letters feel small as well. However as the size of the writing can be adjusted in the OS settings and the screen isn't so small that it is hard to see images, this shouldn't be an inconvenience for normal use. While it doesn't seem well suited for reading long sentences in emails or when researching something, I can say that it is suited for short messages and for looking things up quickly.

Ease of reading sentences

The Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) fails to display words nicely. The outline of the words appear jagged. Also, the device is unable to clearly display words that are smaller, leaving the words with a low visibility. It may be difficult to read such words, and some people quickly get tired.

The beauty of the overal screen

I can't say that the screen of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) is very beautiful. The dots that often appear on digital images are visible when photographs or videos are on screen which can make the display seem a little dull. Every now and then I did feel it was a bit ugly, but this probably won't be an issue for regular use.

Ease of writing sentences

A big part of the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1)'s screen is hidden from view when typing because the keyboard is displayed, and it is difficult having to go back and forth trying to see what you have typed. As such, it's safe to say that the size of the device is not suitable for typing in sentences.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

When using the Spice Fire One (Mi-FX-1) for calls, emails, or for chatting the processing power can be insufficient, and you can experience slowdowns as a result. When using apps it felt like the motion would get caught up which was a bit stressful. For ordinary more relaxed use this slowing isn't at a level that would bother you, but its performance is not suited for fast control.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

The device is not suitable for looking things up on the Internet or browsing SNS, and you can always feel how laggy the phone is. Apps can stop or become completely unusable even when you try to slowly operate the phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

The phone can't handle it if you keep going back and forth between apps. For instance, if you keep going back and forth between your SNS app and chat app, the operation may be overloaded and, as a result, the apps may be closed or crash.
