Android Karbonn A1 Latest Review | Specification, Performance, Price

To gain their market space in smartphone segment the Karbonn mobiles have released their Android smartphone in the market. Karbonn, known for its low-priced mobiles now has launched its Karbonn A1.

First look

The Karbonn A1, on the first look gives an impression of a phone seen somewhere else and then it strikes to be a similar one to the HTC Touch Viva smartphone. With a unique curvy design it has got a full black colour with the same tinted Matte finished back cover that bears a glossy finish though. This can comfortably be handled with a single hand it self.

Display and Keypad

With a small 2.8-inch display, the A1 comes with a resistive touch screen, which however gives a good feedback and is okay for the users to work around with it. Without causing much annoyance as the rest of resistive touchscreen phones do the A1 has a better response. Phew that was a relief…!

The device is constructed to have minimum keys as much a possible with a call connect and disconnect buttons along with a D-pad for navigation so that the device looks good it also has some default android keys made capacitive increases it look. The volume button is placed to its left not a big news tough.

Power and Performance
Going to the performance first the phone bears a 600Mhz processor which can quite quickly do its tasks but is a bit snappy which chokes up when a heavy file is being downloaded and multi-tasking is done at the same time causing trouble at times, but can be managed if unused applications could be closed giving the processor to have some space to breath.

Its 150 MB internal memory adds to be its RAM quite a few times, so while installing any app. make sure that you keep this memory space free so that the phone doesn’t halt your process of loading.

The Android

The A1 possess an Android V 2.2 Froyo as its OS. No changes made in this segment from the side of Karbonn.

Lack of a dedicated graphics core could some time create a problem while using a high performance application, as they don’t run properly without the graphic card.

Calling

 

The call quality is quite good for this phone having an intelligently placed to provide an isolation to the speakers’ voice for better quality, and the speakers are good too. But the earplugs given are of second grade not so good flexible to a 3.5mm jack.

Finally

The A1 is a good smartphone for the people with tight budget. But if you have some more cash to spare, then you can probably upgrade to a better low-priced capacitive touchscreen handset like the Spice Mi310
