Overall: A big thank you to Flipkart for sending this phone to me in just 2 days! That's called rocket delivery :)
Packaging was top class (external) as well as the packaging inside by Karbonn.
I am surprised why there are less reviews of this phone compared to the reviews of some other phones. So here's my review.
WHY you should buy this phone
Looks like a high end phone. Unbeatable value for money.
Performs well. Good audio quality.
Charging by USB. Works great!
Amazing thoughtfulness by Karbonn in terms of features provided. I checked more than 45 phones at this price range for features before I decided to buy this dual simmed beauty.
WHY I bought this phone
I bought this for my mom and she absolutely loves it. The keys are beautiful, widely spaced, easy to type and the display is very clear and legible. Buy it for your mom / dad and older relatives who are not comfortable with touch phones. If you want an elegant classy phone for calling/ messaging, this is the one to go for.
WHY you should not buy this phone
Skip the thought of buying this phone if you want to use the camera. I would have rated this product 5 out of 5. But the camera was very bad. Hence revised the rating to 4 stars. Please avoid this phone if you plan to take any pictures at all. I was shocked that the camera did not show any colour at all! It was all just gray shadows whether it was in open daylight or ambient light. My mom does not intend to use this phone for taking photos so this was not a issue for me.
Note for Flipkart & Karbonn officials - The attached service center lists that you send along with invoice should contain destinations / centers closest to the city/town of the buyer. I live in Navi Mumbai and the list of service centers you sent me, showed 'nearest service centers' in faraway places of Maharashtra. I checked out the internet and your additional booklet and found there were 6 authorized service centers in Navi Mumbai & Mumbai!! So this is clearly a case of bungling up by whoever prepares the list of service centers. Hope you will rectify this so that customers will get list of the nearest service centers in their city/ town instead of a list of service centers somewhere else in the same state.
