This week, India based Karbonn Mobiles announced the launch of a new entry-level smartphone called Karbonn Titanium S5 Ultra priced at Rs 6,999. The handset is made available exclusively via e-commerce portal eBay.in and comes with common specifications. Let’s take a quick review of the smartphone to know about its hardware.
Camera and Internal Storage
The 8 MP auto focus rear shooter included by Karbonn is supplemented with LED flash to render a good low light performance. The secondary camera is a 2 MP sensor that can facilitate in video conferencing and clicking selfies. The competition is met with many entry-level offerings in this price bracket coming with similar photography aspects.
The 4 GB of internal storage is an annoying aspect of the Titanium S5 Ultra. Though there is a micro SD card slot supporting expandable memory cards up to 32 GB, we would like to have 8 GB of storage capacity onboard the device to facilitate downloading more applications.
Processor and Battery
The Karbonn Titanium S5 Ultra houses a quad-core processor of unspecified chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz. This processor is assisted by 1 GB of RAM to provide smooth multi-tasking. For an entry-level smartphone, these hardware specifications should suffice in delivering moderate levels of performance that would be expected by the basic users.
Battery capacity is 2,000 mAh which sounds decent enough considering the hardware capabilities of the smartphone and it is on par with that of the other smartphones in this range.
Display and Features
The display in the Karbonn smartphone is a standard 5 inch panel that carries a resolution of 960×540 pixels. There is not much to boast about the sharpness based on these specifications. In the same price bracket, there are devices with better screens such as making this one a weak contender.
The phone runs on latest Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system and includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro USB, 3G, GPS and dual SIM functionality for connectivity.
