Karbonn A16 Review

source- dineshjadhav.com

I 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.

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.

Before 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.

Karbonn 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
with the low priced smartphones. 512MB RAM is really appreciable at this price. However, a common
user 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.
Karbonn 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
the 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.

Karbonn 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.

As 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.

The 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.

3.accessories- original flip-cover or bag are not available in market till date.
4. 2G/3G- 2G works fine but never felt the speed of 3G

3.games- all games runs smoothly
4.music- nice to hear on ear-phones.works great

having some defects,still i am over-all satisfied with my phone because you cant get everything perfect in a low budget phone.and i have already a camera, so i didnt really go for a good camera specifications.thus i am very happy with my new phone and its performance. :-) B-)

first to review
bad feeling on buying but overall good and perfect

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

Good Overall except Camera

I bought this mob in flipkart today. I found the mobile has smooth touch, wide screen. We can expect everything covered within 5k budget. Awesome mobile, except camera quality other features are good.

Karbonn A16, Value for Money

I know there are many brand-conscious people online and Karbonn may not seem to be a preferred brand in comparison to the likes of Samsung, Nokia, Apple.
At the same time, there are also some "purpose-conscious" people online, those who do not care too much about branding. This review is for both category of people.

Pros:
Karbonn A16 serves the purpose if you are using it for photos, whatsapp and a bit of gaming too. WIFI and mobile networks work fine.
Camera is decent, though I would prefer a real camera for my snaps.
Screen sensitivity is also good.

Pros:
Karbonn A16 serves the purpose if you are using it for photos, whatsapp and a bit of gaming too. WIFI and mobile networks work fine.
Camera is decent, though I would prefer a real camera for my snaps.
Screen sensitivity is also good.
Screen size is good if you want a phone that shows decent sized videos and also fits in your pocket.
Price is great. I would buy 5 such phones @INR4000 each and use each for 1 year (1 new phone every year) rather than buying a branded one for >INR25000 and staying with the same model for 5 years.
Get real, no one uses the same phone for more than 1.5 years these days. There's always the better phone at a cheaper price hitting the market in every 6 months.

Cons:
Actual memory is way lesser that claimed internal memory of 4GB (that maybe the reason why it is going for less price!).
Battery runs out a bit too faster than other branded phones. So, if you want to use it in office, charge it in office :).
No flipcase and no screen guard included. You might end up spending additional INR400 on these accessories which are a "must" these days.
