Another smartphone from Karbonn Mobiles, named Karbonn A91 is now selling on online retail website Flipkart, priced at Rs. 4,490. The phone sports modest specifications standard in entry level android phones and the 1.3 GHz dual core processor remains the highlight of this device.
The phone runs on Android 4.2 jelly bean OS which runs on top end domestic manufacturer devices as well. The phone also features Dual SIM Dual Standby connectivity, a much sought after feature in Indian market. The display is 3.9 inches in size and sports a quite useable WVGA resolution.
The 1.3 GHz Dual core processor is most likely MT6572 chipset from MediaTek and is assisted by 256 MB RAM and 512 MB internal storage which will vastly limit your Android experience. The internal storage can be further extended to 32 GB using MicroSD support.
The camera combination is 3.2 MP/ VGA and it won’t be wise to expect much. The absence of LED flash will further restrict you from low light photography and using the Torch App.
The battery capacity is 1500 mAh which is standard in budget phone segment. Karbonn has not specified the backup this battery will generate in daily course of events. The lack of 3G will be a deal breaker for many. Other connectivity features include 2G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with A2DP.
Karbonn has presented with a budget Android device with entry level specifications and entry level price. If you are looking forward to taste Android Jelly bean at a ridiculously low price, this can be the way to go. However, your experience would be sluggish. The phone will suffice for basic usage. You can also consider Nokia Asha 502 and Nokia Asha 501.
