Connectivity and Battery
The specs of Karbonn mobiles and tablets are great - you see at it, compare the price and will definitely like to have one. But the problems start just after that.nnI purchased Karbonn smart Tab 8, just by seeing the specification and price. It was great and I was too happy. But just after two and half month, the tab started hanging, screen started getting green, the volume was getting up and down automatically. I contacted the service centre and handed over the tab for repair.nnHow much time do you expect for repair - four days, 2 weeks, a month? Wrong - On 7th Oct 13, it has passed four months and the tab is still under repair. I contacted service center many times and lastly came to know that they have sent the tab to their central service center. Tried calling the toll free number - no response. Either the call will not get connected or they will simply not lift the phone. Try it yourself. Mailed with a nasty letter - no response. One time when they lifted, they said there are lots of phones and tabs PILED up for repair and mine will be repaired when the turn comes!nnTo cut the story short - buy it if you just want to use it for one or two months. It will definitely get some problem by that time and then simply throw it away. Don't ever try to contact or go to service center, you will get headaches for free!! Well done Karbonn!!

ANTUTU gave a score of "10816" which is just awesome.nnCons:n1. Very bad quality screen guard placed(it is just a plastic put by the manufacturer)n2. Camera is good only in day light and very very bad in the dark places.n3. Colour is dull black and not the full black as shown in the pictures.nnOverall it is more than worth the money at this price.
