Karbonn A50s Quick Review, Price and Comparison

By now you must have already heard about this cheapest Android smartphone in India launched by Karbonn by the name of Karbonn A50s. I don’t know why but this device seems to be the best kind of gift for your parents who have not used an Android before and have been running away from it because its high-price. Even after being available at the price mark of Rs. 2,790, the specifications of this device are not bad, let us take a look at them in detail.


Camera and Internal Storage

The device is equipped with a primary camera of 2 MP and secondary camera of 0.2 MP. We find it really astonishing as in Karbonn even manages to provide a secondary camera at the price of video calling, so you are missing out on any basic functionality even at this lower price.

The internal memory storage capacity of the device is 512 MB which can be extended up to 32GB with the help of external memory support.

Processor and Battery

The Mediatek Dual Core Processor clocked at the frequency of 1.2 GHz is really decent at this kind of price (you can now imagine the cost of a raw Dual Processor by Mediatek, I think they are the only reason that Android smartphones are being produced at such a low cost). This processor is also supported by 512MB of RAM

The battery available on the device has the strength of 1100 mAh which is decent looking at the screen size and the resolution of display.

Display and Features

The device is available with the screen size of 3.5 Inches with the resolution of 480 x 320 pixels, this kind of screen can still be seen on iPhone 4S and believe me it is not that bad. It will feel awkward if you have been using a larger device initially but after sometime it will be fine for you.

The device will come preloaded with 4.2.2 and there is no clue whether Karbonn will be providing the upgrades for this device or not.


The competitors of this device are Celkon A35K, Nokia Asha 230, Nokia Asha 500 and Micromax Bolt A58

Karbonn A50s being the cheapest has a good specification roundup and so it is recommended that it is the best device if you want to try out Android for the first time. You will get an idea that how does Android works exactly but done try to play games on that device, most of them will not even install on that device and even if they do, they will cause huge UI lags on the device and it may crash all the time. . You can buy this device from Flipkart.
