Verdict

Karbonn has come out with another pocket friendly Android phone in a stylish angular body with which it will try to appeal to all the college going students mainly with its catchphrase, raise your social quotient. A very worthwhile buy for the price.

Worthwhile smartphone

Display and Configuration

Karbonn A16, another edition to Karbonn’s list of affordable smartphones is here with a 3.9 inch TFT screen capable of displaying 800x480 pixels of resolution. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz dual core processor with 512MB of usable RAM. It runs on the latest Android 4.2 JellyBean so no problem of any apps not running.

Camera and Storage

The Karbonn A16 has a 5MP primary camera with 720p video shooting capability and an LED flash. The camera although not great but comes with autofocus and adjust exposure capabilities and the host of apps available on the google play improves the camera sufficiently. The front camera is basic and only useful for occasional video calling. The inbuilt memory is limited to 4GB but is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card for storing all your media. Although not a HD screen, it doesnt lag much while playing HD videos thanks to the powerful processor.

Battery and Connectivity

The device features all the connectivity that one expects from a phone of these specifications. Both the dual sim (GSM + GSM ) are 3G enabled and has Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g, etc to ensure that connectivity wise the consumer isn't lacking. The battery at 1350 mAH is on the lower side though and has difficulty lasting a whole day on moderate usage.

bad feeling on buying but overall good and perfect
04 Nov 2013 By Kamal Dev Jhalli On flipkart.com

I bought this mobile on dushehra festible. as the features shown stunned me 3g+wifi+1.4dc processor 512/4gb etc... Although the 5MP camera was a pleasant word to ears, still reaching home,while I tried to picture-ise my little son; I was shocked as there was no flash and the picture quality was far below comparing to my old nokia n 70. ashamed i went back to the dealer and paid remaining amount because it had been billed to me . In addition to this I felt be looted 5MP camera. moreover no flip/other cover available in market and this cost me lot of fuel. Kamal Dev

Karbonn A16 Review
18 May 2014 By Dinesh Jadhav On flipkart.com

source- dineshjadhav.comnnI would describe Karbonn A16 as "For those who want it all" or "Maximum for minimum". Users are always in search of a smartphone which provides maximum features & hardware for the most minimum cost. I personally feel this segment interesting instead of the top tier flagships. Because providing the best in the market is easy since one can demand any cost for that, but providing the most in the lowest possible price, after keeping in view the costs and profitability and company financial stability requires great planning.nnnBefore I write anything, I would like to let you know that Karbonn A16 is available online at Rs.4,000 as on 7th May 2014. In stores, the price may come down depending on your negotiations. Well, the price is good enough to stun anybody. Once someone will see this price, he/ she will stop expecting anything out of this phone, but here starts the unbelievable journey.nnKarbonn A16 supports both 2G & 3G in India. Its a Dual SIM Android Phone. SIM 1 Supports 3G & SIM2 support 2G Network. This phone was released in October 2013. Phone dimensions are 126.3*64*11 mm, the thickness may sound bad, but it helps in holding the phone firmly. Phone's look is very standard, it doesn't look cheap. The screen has resolution of 480x800 pixels, same as the popular phones like Samsung Galaxy Grand/ Grand Neo, S Duos and S Duos 2, Core, S3 Mini, Nokia Lumia 520/525/620/625/720/820, Xperia E. Plus, the screen size has been kept at 3.9 inch to make the screen look sharper, which I did like. Karbonn A16 supports SD Cards upto 32GB with internal memory of 4GB, so the actual available internal memory may be less, which is quite common nwith the low priced smartphones. 512MB RAM is really appreciable at this price. However, a common nuser can install all the necessary applications without issues in the available space. Installing applications on internal memory makes them run automatically & show widgets. Plus, for songs, games, applications & videos, SDCard is always there. USB connectivity is present as expected.nKarbonn A16 supports WiFi, and surprisingly, it works as a WiFi Hotspot too. Its camera has been controversial since its sensor shows 5MP, but the photos are not upto the mark. I can say that not nthe sensor size, but the image processor software & hardware is responsible for this. But after looking at the cost, one can live with it, however, I would recommend you to test the camera first in the store before buying the phone, or incase of online store, confirm the return policy conditions. Phone can do video recording, it has a front camera too. Karbonn says its a "Digital Camera", but it should be of VGA resolution. This front camera can be used for facelock using 3rd party applications, video calling etc. Many budget smartphones still don't have a front camera as on today.nnKarbonn A16 has a 1.3 GHz Dual Core Processor of unannounced brand, which is not a surprise, considering its price. It comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, plus as the phone cost is not huge, you can take risks and try to update its OS on your own by referring the forums on the internet. This smartphone has FM, GPS with GMaps, UC Browser, Opera Mini, Android, WAP browsers inbuilt, G Sensor for games, GMail, GTalk, WhatsApp built in.nnAs per Karbonn's tests, the phone has upto 7 days standby time & upto 5 hrs talktime. So you need to remain a bit careful if the charger is not connected to the phone. Or having a backup phone for calls & SMS is the best choice here. I know its painful, but that's how one needs to manage low cost smartphones.nnnThe phone comes in Black or White. 1 year manufacturer warranty for Phone and 6 months warranty for in the box accessories has been given. To sum up, this phone ideal for those who don't care about the photos much, and have the charger access most of the time, and need a smartphone in the least cost.nnfound my review useful?
