Display and Configuration

Karbonn smart A5i features a 3.5 inch capacitive LCD display capable of displaying 480x320 pixel resolution and 262k colours. The screen is of average size and the display density at ~220 ppi isn’t all that great, but considering the price bracket this phone falls in value for money category. Underneath the exterior, lies a 1Ghz single core processor with 512MB of RAM out of which approximately 200 MB is available to the user in the end. It is powered by Android’s Gingerbread OS v2.3 which considering today’s needs is a bit outdated. 

Camera and memory

There is only one primary camera of 3MP with digital zoom and video recording capabilities. The lack of a secondary camera might put off a few buyers as the handset is 3G capable so video calling won't be possible. Internal Memory is limited to 512 MB which thankfully can be expanded to 32GB via a microSD, although the phone lags considerably if a 16GB or a higher memory card is inserted into it. Multiple audio file support might come as a relief to music lovers to play their favourite music irrespective of the format it is in. VIdeo support is limited to only 3gp and MP4 though.

Connectivity and battery

The phone is dual sim capable of both GSM and WCDMA capabilities which makes it highly convenient to use any sim card in multiple bandwidths. Connectivity wise it satisfies with all the basic needs such as Bluetooth v3.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, USB, etc. The battery is of 1420mAH which should give about 7-8 hrs of calling on 3G.

Verdict

Karbonn is trying hard to get youngsters to use their budget smartphones and with the new launch of the Smart A5i, it tries to cement its place. At first glance the phone looks interesting, but the outdated OS and low internal memory might put a few people off.

    Overall: I have been using the device for 5 months now and I have to say I am satisfied with it.Most of us make purchase decisions based on configurations alone and although that's a fair way way to go about it there is a lot about a phone which cannot be guessed from the configurations alone.nnnPros:-nThe device looks a lot more expensive than it is more so than any phone in this segment.The build quality is solid and it can take a fair amount of beating.nnHandles Facebook,Whatsapp,Hike and Gmail with comfortable ease.nnComes with a screen-guard.nnBattery Backup is better than most phones at this price.(Lasts for a day with medium use nBecause of the older android this comes bundled with it is a lot smoother than devices of similar specs with newer android versions .The reason being,that a device with 512 MB of Ram running KITKAT feels like you are in slow motion and you are left with almost no Ram for applications.People might differ with me on this but I prefer a device which runs smoothly and does not test your patience even if it means choosing an older version of the operating system. nnnSupports 3G.nCons:-nInternal memory. nThe older android(2.3) that this device offers does not support a lot of new apps.nThe camera is worse than the VGA cameras that the very first camera phones came bundled with

    Overall: its not my type because it has one drawback that you have to cut your sim card by going on mobile shops where you may have to pay what is the use when one have to pay even after buying a phone ?
