The Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus is another budget quad-core smartphone in a market flooded with similar devices. Will the phone be able to make a name for itself? Is there a market for a device like the S1 Plus? Well, only time will tell. In the meantime, you can continue reading to know what we feel on the subject.
|Model||Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus|
|Display||4 inches, 800 x 480p|
Camera and Internal Storage
The device is sort of a ‘specialist’; read on and you’ll know why. Having said that, we must mention that the speciality we talk about definitely doesn’t lie in the camera and storage department. In fact, the device is quite a modest one at that – it comes with only a 5MP rear shooter that’s coupled with a VGA front.
The device should suffice when you want pictures of your family and friends, but go a step further and you will be in for disappointment. The key here, like with many other domestic devices, is to keep your expectations low (having none at all is a bonus).
The phone comes with 4GB of on-board storage, which should suffice for a few days to few weeks of initial use… after which you will have to spend on a microSD card.
Processor and Battery
The strength of the device lies right here, i.e., in the processing department. The phone packs a quad-core CPU with a 1.2GHz clock, which along with 1GB of RAM makes for a respectable setup when you consider the price point which lies under 6k INR. The phone should be one of the best performers in its price range, something which will make other manufacturers think twice.
The battery on the S1 Plus is quite a mediocre unit, with a capacity of 1500mAh. Not that it is under-powered in any manner, but since we’ve been seeing those in excess of 2000mAh far too often nowadays, the idea of a 1500mAh doesn’t sound too attractive. Nonetheless, with only a 4 inch screen the phone should easily take you through one day of moderate usage.
Display and Features
With a 4 inch, 800 x 480p the device is far from the best, and in fact, below the average. Today’s users generally prefer devices with screen sizes in excess of 4.5 inches, but there’s always the exception. And this exception doesn’t always have to be a buyer, it can come in the form of a phone, which is what we see here. The device is clearly not meant for multimedia and gaming-heads, but the more professional user looking to get more out of his daily life.
The device has the usual radio in the form of 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS which make up for the rest of its features.
Filling in the competitors list was quite a daunting task, for it was tough to find devices with similar specifications and price. While there are innumerable number of devices with the same specifications as the Titanium S1 Plus, there hardly exist any which come at a similar price point. If multimedia, imaging and gaming isn’t your thing, you need to get yourself a Titanium S1 Plus, hands down.
