This what happens when Karbonn gets enraged by samsungs note II and micromax.nIts SUPERB except if it had 480p(480x854 as A110)instead of WVGA (480x800)nIt has same processor gpu as A110 but at benchmarks there is a slight improvementnIt comes with a Carry Case and an extra back panel.Heres what i say:n1)Look/Feel:Candy Bar,Black/White Carry Case,Silver default/additional Back paneln2)Display: a)5.9" LCD 256K(get a Matte Screen guard which fits and see ur figers glide)nResolution: b)480*800(those 54 missing pixels could have been awesome)nTouch: c)5 point Multitouch capacitive Gesture Moden3)User interface:OS a)Android 4.0 ICS(Not a Jelly Beaner)nSensors: b)3d G-Sensor,probably an Accelerometer,proximity sensor,light sensornEmail: c)Instant messaging,GTalk,Gmail,Push Notifications...n4)Connectivity: a)WiFi 802.11 b/g/nnb)Dual Sim GSM+GSM Dual Standby 3G HSDPA 7.2mbpsnc)Bluetooth v4nd)Tethering:USB Wifi Hotspotn5)Camera: 8MP rear, 1.3MP front camera. LED flash, video recording supported.nDigital Zoom - 4x Auto Focus, Face Detectionn6)Processor: Dual core (MT6577) clocked at 1GHz(A21 had 1.2Ghz dualcore)n7)GPU: PowerVR SGX 531 GPU. (Quadrant benchmark score is 2800 to 2900)nSlightly Better than A110 mine Score upto 2786n8)Memory: a) 512 MB RAM (let down for background and cached processes)nb)503 MB internal storage, Phone Storage at 2GBnc)microSD slot upto 32GB (guess class 10 or 12[upto])n9)Battery: 2500mAH (A110 at 2000mAH but the screen needs it)n10)Support: Karbonn as it is.n1 year manufacturer warranty for Phone and 6 months warranty for in the box accessoriesnVerdict: in a nutshell A 5.9 inch Phablet with free carry case and extra back panel is awesome at this price.But if u wanna spend 15K~18K ZOPOs gonna launch a quadcore 5.7 inch phablet with 1GB RAM in India around Jan.nI wish I had waited for this.nPrice at its best no hard feelings Micromax(u gotta step it up).
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/
