First of all, hats off to FK team for their timely delivery. As usual they delivered it on time (In my case it was before time as the expected delivery s=date was 9th Nov. and i got it on 6th Nov. i.e. after 42 Hrs of placing the order. Now coming to the phone, the phone comes with a nice packing but as soon as you take it in your hand you will get to know its a phone which costs you Rs.1740. Pros:- Good call clarity Supports photo of any size as wallpaper (Most of the low end phone don't support) Jumbo Battery Backup (Around 10 Hrs of calling done without any recharging of the battery) Ultimate TFT Display (I really didn't expected this sort of brilliance from Karbonn) Loud Sound (Can also be slow down so that you can use it in your office and as well as in traffic) Every basic feature covered Cons:- Plastic body Average keypad built (was very shaggy from the first day as if already 2000 sms has been sent using this keypad) Smaller chord for charging (But using USB you can charge your phone so not a big deal) Worst 3.5mm Headphones Overall as this phone has burnt a smaller portion of my pocket i will rate this phone as a good one from Karbonn as of now.
I Bought this mobile to try the Karbonn brand low price range as well as a substitute to my regular phone in emergency. I bought this due to its on paper specifications which appeared to have an edge over the other similar priced mobiles in the range. However : 1) The build quality is so bad it will look like a 1 year old set in a few days of usage. 2) Even though it boasts of a very good battery life, it would last 3 days only if your total talk time is around 1 - 1.5 Hrs per day. Excluding listening music on phone. On avg it may give 5 Hrs of talk time against mentioned 9 Hrs, But definitely gives more than average backup. 3) Coming to music the speaker quality is below average u would neither like to listen to music nor talk on loud speaker. 4) Call quality is pathetic. when area is a little noisy, like outdoors or market etc, You just can not understand 100% of conversation. Nokia or Sony users can not accept this call quality. 5) Key pad is large but feels like each button will fall apart on hard use. 6) 2.6 inch screen is good and putting a good wallpaper makes it look beautiful. 7) Camera instead could have been avoided and cost of the phone could have been lowered coz this camera is equal to no camera on phone. 8) The only flawless and good thing about this phone is its TORCH. 9) This was my first handset from karbonn in its low price range which i have stopped using within one month. 10) SMS Memory is 100 + SIM1+SIM2. Can buy this phone as an emergency stand by types, but definitely not as your primary talking phone because of the call quality which is the primary use of any mobile.
I am using it for last five days. I must say that at such a small price, this is a very good product. Very good battery back up, very good letter size (not too small and not too large) and very good software - I mean - ease of use. It has many basic features all of which are not, of course, a prime necessity for a man like me. Display quality is more or less good but call clarity is not up to the mark. Finally, I'm satisfied spending Rs.1740 for it.
