As far as I know this is the second phone that is being powered by the Firefox OS.
The Intex Cloud FX is t he first firefox based OS that was launched at INR 1,999.
Is it really worth to spend 500 rupees more for Spice Fire One by not chosing the Intex Cloud FX???
Even the Spice Fire One has a 1.3 camera against the 2.0 camera of Intex Cloud FX.
The only benefit I can see is the 1400 mAh battery is little bit more than the Intex Cloud FX.
Having made the above points I strongly suggest to go for the Intex Cloud FX.
Stay tuned to get the latest information.
