This is an excellent phone if you re looking for a phone with 1 GB Ram under 7K. Getting a Quad processor is a icing on the cake as you wont get a quad in this price. I was ssurprised with the touch sensitivity of the phone and the screen colors. Camera is avg getting good Photos for daily use and some scans. Overall Paisa Vasool..value for money phone
Smooth touch, Fast response, Bright Screen, Light weight
it is really a woooww handset by karbonn cmpany
good processor all over good experience
Ok so this review is for all but mainly to those people going crazy over the karbonn ads on tv showing the number of features their phones have (case in point: Titanium edition)
I bought a Karbonn A9+ in January 2013. By April it stopped working. I live in Mumbai so I took it to a Karbonn service centre (Fort)and he refused to repair it saying that he does not service bangalore phones. The issue is still ongoing and all the customer care numbers are unavailable. i have taken up the issue with karbonn and they have still not provided me with a solution.
FYI: I BOUGHT THIS PHONE ON EMI FROM FLIPKART AND JUST PAID THE LAST EMI (WITH COMPLPETE REGRET) A FEW DAYS AGO.
WAY TO GO FLIPKART!! I dont know if this fault is with you or karbonn mobiles, but I dont intend to shop online anymore.
Here is a complaint that i wrote to Karbon Customer care but have not got any reply till now.
To Whom soever this may concern:
Phone: Karbon S1.
Date of Purchase: 18/APR/2013
Bill no 20404.
IMEI no: ********50133436
This is in regards to my Karbon S1 phone, i would like to convey
my dissatisfaction with the quality of the phone provided to me.
I bought this system in the month of April and initially it gave me immense happiness to me that
i finally have a Android ph which has the latest features and configuration.
But that did not last long as the phone started freezing almost immediately and i had to log off
and Logon or restart the ph. Most of the Screen savers do not work at all or even if they do,
they would make the system to freeze. Dont worry, these screensavers were from a registered websites
and all the applications thatuse are from a valid websites.
Apart from this the system heats a lot just near the camera area.
A month ago my the speakers on my phone stopped working. I took it to one of your service centers
(Job sheet no: 478,) in Rajajinagar, Bangalore and after about 2 hrs of waiting, he told me that this needs
to serviced at the headoffice. He promised to give the phone back in 4 days, but i only received it after
2 weeks where the speakers did not work immediately after receiving it. I visited the service center again
on Friday 19JUL13 and the engineer got the Ringer replaced. But when i turned on Volume of the system it was
almost 50% less than what was before and even the quality of the speakers is really bad as it has Jarring effet.
Now the recent most issue that i am facing is, neither the SD card nor any of the SIM cards are getting
detected. I did a factory restore and still no changes.
I do not have any more patitence to go to the service center and wait for the service call.
What i would request from your end is that:
1) I would like a full refund done on my phone. (as it is still in warranty)
2) Replacement with a new phone.
Request you to please respond to the same at the earliest.
