Karbonn A9 Plus sounds like a steal deal for its price. IPS display and Dual core at this price makes this phone a great value for money. Recommended.
Karbonn A9 Plus sports a 4.0 inch IPS capacitive touch screen which ensures excellent graphics rendering and wide viewing angles. It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered by 1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor of 512MB RAM.
It has a 5.0 MP camera at the back for shutterbugs and 1.3MP camera at the front for video calling. It has 4 GB of inbuilt storage that is expandable upto 32GB via micro SD card.
I had placed an order for Karbonn A18 earlier, but Micromax Funbook Talk made me to cancel that order that order a couple of days later. However, the specs of MMX FB Talk stopped me from buying it. It had no Bluetooth, single SIM, etc etc. And then came the Karbonn A9+.nnI couldn't find much review on this phone, but the specs alone made me to think that this is the phone I am going to buy. I immediately placed an order for this phone on Flipkart, and right now, it's in my palm!!nnWell, the phone is amazing. The dsplay is mind blowing. I can say it is around 225+ ppi. The colors are bright and vivid. The UI was smooth. I didn't feel any lad when used normally.nnHowever, the HD video playback was a disappointment. The frame rate was very slow. The video will stop in between. Also, I found the earpiece volume to be a bit low. That was a disappointment as well.nnThe space utilization of the phone is pretty good. I had already installed number of apps in it. And yes, it includes FM radio.nnThe package comes with charger and headset of Pearl White color. You'll feel as if you are using any Apple accessory.nnOverall, this is a good package considering the price at which it is being sold. And at this price, the most amazing thing was the bright red Qualcomm Snapdragon logo on the box.nnI'll update the in depth review later.
..To start with.. I smashed my HTC... outside warranty... repair quote was 10,500.. which wasn't worth..!! so was lookin n researching for cheapest options with Max features..!! So obvious.. I zeroed upon Micromax n Karbonn..!! I almost got the A100....great build quality... but i didnt kinda Like the onscreen touch buttons n the font in few widgets... Then i decided to go for A18... liked everything about it... but the build quality was lookin aweful @ first glance..!! Then I started seeing the ads for of A11... but the look was a bit old school....!!! but then... A9+ just gave me what i wanted.. looks.. Size.. Specs n da price..!! I've seen a A9.. its display was quite good.. so this one will be much better..!!!nnAlso i saw a few People were worried bout the high SAR values... yes.. It is on the higher side... but hey... Its not only karbonn n micromax there.... A few Big Names are rated with almost equal or more SAR value... so as long as u use a headset for long Calls... I think u should be Absolutely fine..!! I'm buying this one.... nnCos.. If I gain.. I would've gained a mountain.. n if I lose.. I would've lost a Pube..!! haha..!!
