I have been using Karbonn A30 for 4 days now and the experience has been nothing short of brilliant.nWas way to apprehensive about bying a KARBONN phone since i have all my life been a Sony Ericsson n a NOKIA guy.nI almost bought Sony Xperia S( Now i know the league is totally different) but this phone does not fail to impress.nnFirstly the CON's if i may say so:nn1. The Size : Not for people with small hands. n2. Heating Problems: The phone gets warm while attending to phone calls and playing gamesn3. Charger: The USB and socket charger are a complete let down. The plastic feels cheap.n4. Headphone Output: I like my music loud(Really Loud : ) ) but i wouldn't call this a bane. But nevatheless felt that it should be jotted down as a "CON".nnPROS:nn1. Size: Evrythn seems small in front of this monster. The fonts are bolder, the pictures are better, movie xperience is awesome, gaming xperience is better.n2. Speakers: Loaded with superb output speakers. Outdoors or Indoors, u would not be let down.n3. Screen: I know what a LED backlit LCD screen does to your phones but Karbonn have managed to put together a decent rather an above average WVGA screen into the A30.n4. Touch : One Word - "Seamless"n5. Leather Pouch: Karbonn A30 would have been a complete let down had it been launched without a leather case.n6. Lastly and definitely the game changer: PRICE: 11.9 K... U must b kidding if u are still reading this review and not buying this phone : )nnFlipkart Delivery does make it worth the while. I ordered it on Sat n the phn reachd me on Monday.nnThe phone is priced competitively hence the 512("Less") RAM, No Gorilla 2 glass n WVGA screen.nnBut RAM would affect you only if you wanna play sm heavy loaded s*&t... For me it is just Browsing n Youtube n the RAM just doesn't matter therennHardened Glass used by Karbonn A30 is not a let down, Gorilla or No Gorilla, its the phone thats gonna blow ur mind away.nnN Lastly the WVGA screen, i know my colours n i m definitely not blind. The screen does more than justice to its price tag.nnMy Frns Love It n So Do I : )nn\m/ Karbonn A30 \m/
Karbonn a30 Superb Phablet. Here is some points:n1. Everyone is saying it has 800*400 low resolution. But you can't find the difference between 800*400 and 854*400(as in mm a110).Most of the tablets (7inch) present in market are of 800*400 resolution. No complaints about them, then why here is. Karbonn has added special font ui on this phone.n2. Battery on mmx is of 2000maH and karbonn a30 got 2500maH of battery. People are saying screen needs it, there is no difference. Then why talk time of a110 is about 5 hours and a30 got about 10 hours of talk time? n3. 512mb. Enough for multi-multitasking.n4. Build quality is superb. One thing I like most is phone's look. The flip cover makes it's look better.n5. Tablet in it. The phone is tablet in itself. No need for tablet to watch videos on wider screen. Karbonn a30 does this job very well.nOne thing I dislike is absence of magnetic sensor. If you are not gonna use compass then u don't need it. Go for karbonn a30.
Mobile is Just awesome, Multitasking and all is greatnall top games are running butter smoothnSim Management is also greatnResolution is also nice not so great but you can't make out actually as with a very nice wallpaper screen looks stunningnWaiting for Custom ROM to come or i will make one for smaller dpi and all :)nnWhat i didn't like is casen- no ear piece hole to talkn- i just tried to remove case and what i got mobile in my hand with back cover and leather cover in other handni had to stick it again to use it :(nnBuilt quality is superb, extra back cover is whaa whaa :Dnnin short m more than happy with this dealni have S2 and S1 but musing this for now :)nitz great itz PHABLET :Pnngo for it guyz, don't miss this mobile :)
Wow!!! First of all kudos to Flipkart in delivering the product before the expected shipping date. Regarding Karbonn A30 i am not commenting about the (Technical review) as it was very well explained by one the user & i had gone thru the same review and was really amazed. This device is surely going to be a super HIT in 2013, mainly for the price 11900 and for the quality. Its going 2 give a really Tough Competition to Samsung. Earlier i was using Samsung Champ... Only suggestion to the makers would be that the instructions provided in the book requires more detail help about the new features, as it takes some time to get used to.. Overall i am very much satisfied. FULL 2 PAISA VASOOL :) :) :) :)
