Karbonn has launched another smartphone in the budget phone segment, named Karbonn Smart A5i, which has been priced at Rs. 3,699. As is evident from the price range, the specifications are minimal and meant for first time android users for basic Android experience.
The display of this phone is 3.5 inches in size, and bears 320 x 480 pixel resolution which will suffice for basic usage. On the software front, this phone comes with Android 2.3 Ginger bread operating system, which is now quite primitive but still commands a major share in Android fragmentation.
The processor employed is 1 GHz single core processor, backed by 512 MB RAM and 104 MB of user available internal storage memory. This can be further extended to 32 GB using MicroSD card. The primary camera present is of 3 MP and the secondary camera is not present in the phone.
The Battery capacity is 1420 mAh which will give you 4 hours of talk time on 2G. Connectivity options are pretty regular with 3G, GPRS, EDGE, WAP, USB and Bluetooth support. The 3G connectivity is something you can’t expect to see in this price range.
This phone will compete with phones like Intex Cloud X3, Lava Iris 356 and 402. The low internal memory will vastly limit your Android experience. The phone is meant for general purpose usage involving net surfing and basic social networking.
