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 It is powered by Android’s Gingerbread OS v2.3 which considering today’s needs is a bit outdated.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.


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 At first glance the phone looks interesting, but the outdated OS and low internal memory might put a few people off.
