Overall User Rating (3.4 Out of 5 based on 34 ratings)
Overall: Recently I bought this phone @ Rs 8500 online, here is the quick review of this product.
DESIGN & SCREEN
Pros : It is one of the best phone designed by karbonn.8.5mm slimmer & a flip cover with this phone give this phone a premium look. It is the first 6"inch smartphone by karbonn& the first phone under the Platinum series.The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Cons: It is having QHD 960x540 &296ppi though we expect more in this price range. Though it has good viewing angle & screen is bright in sunlight & even the 1080p videos plays smoothly without any lag.
The phone is having 8MP front & back which is able to click decent photos even in poor light..the color reproduction is natural, few detailing is missing but it is OK..
Cons: The phone record video in 720p (Karbonn low budget phones like Sparkle V & Mach One record video in 1080p)
The phone is running on Kitkat 4.4. and as Karbonn promises it will be upgraded to lollipop in future. The phone has smooth user interface. karbonn has experimented on app icons .
It is where this phone lag behind. Karbonn is using the same MediaTek chipset in 5000 to 8000 price range. It is running on 1.3GHz Quad core processor & only 1GB RAM(should be atleast 2GB). But instead of that this phone perform better than other device with same chipset. It scores approx 21000 score in AnTuTu Benchmark which enough to handle heavy games,,It also have 16GB of inbuilt memory which is too much for any user 9GB is availabe for User we can also expand it to 32GB
BATTERY & VIDEO PLAYBACK
This phone battery run whole day after heavy usage.
This phone gives a video playback of 4hrs
GAMING & HEATING ISSUE
I tried to run few games like Asphalt 8 & Fifa 15 both run smoothly with no frame drop.
Few heating issues are found but not like other phone which heated up like a heater in which u can make a chapati.
So at last i must it is the best 6" phone under 10000. as only micromax doodle 4 & Karbonn Platinum P9 is the only 6" smartphone under 10000. & between these two Karbonn perform much better in term of Camera & hardware performance..
If u want smaller screen with better performance Lenevo A6000plus & A6000/ Karbonn Octane & Micromax Canvus Nitro are some better smartphone in 8000 price range
