It's raining budget smartphones this season, and Spice is the latest to join the Firefox bandwagon after Intex launched the cheapest smartphone to have hit the Indian market. Spice Fire One Mi-FX priced at Rs 2,299 is the company's first Firefox operating system (OS)-powered device.
It punches in all the basic ingredients of a smartphone at an unbelievable price, thanks to the newly developed Firefox OS.

Is the OS good enough to produce a budget smartphone by Spice? Let's find out.
