Differences based on actual hands on

First thing I would like to say is I am not relying on any review or specs on the internet. Second is I am not biased towards any of the 2 phones A100(Micromax) Or A18(Karbonn) as I am myself confused on which one to buy. Ok now let's start
Spent 10 mins on both phones and this what I found.

1) A100 has a display that is bigger, brighter and has better color reproduction. But A18 has a really touch responsive/snappy/butter-smooth and accurate display, it literally gives the iphone a run for ...

After all, you are not the mobile you use...

I generally don't write reviews but writing this one because like many others I struggled a lot for past ten days, to collect information about this mobile. I want to help all those poor souls by sharing my experience about A18.


Why A18? First my budget was fixed. 10K. So I had only two options MM A100 and K A18. I was inclined towards A18 because the reviews said it is faster than A100.usage (My personal opinion) A100 is bit too large for daily Also A100 wasn't available in any shop in m...

Karbonn A18 definitely Rocks over Micromax A100

Karbonn A18 definitely Rocks over Micromax A100. Reasons:
1. A18 has 720p video recording. Which is not in A100, it has outdated 480p video recording.
2. 4.3" Screen is ideal for phone. If you want A100 due to large screen of 5" I would suggest you to go for 7" or 10" tablets they are more large ;) And I don't think it is easy to use 5" phone by one hand and carry it in pockets, and since A100 has large screen without any protection, it is more prone to breakage on fall.
3. Of course 1.3Mp f...

Buy A18 - Don't Spend 30K on Fancy Brands. Jago Grahak Jago.

I received this phone from Flipkart 20 days back. My earlier phone costed me 30k+ but it was broken due to which I decided to purchase a less priced phone. I found this phone amazing in every aspect. The processor is very fast and efficient. Touchscreen, Display, Call Voice, Speakers, Camera are all excellent. This is truly, a value for money phone.

I would recommend Karbonn A18 over to any other phone. I don't think it would be a wise decision now, to spend 3 or 4 times more money on an in...

A Detailed Review on Practicality of the A18

I was originally going to buy the Micromax Canvas A100, but it was out of stock on Flipkart and my patience wore out. I have been using this handset for over 10 days now and this is what I've found out:

Pros:
* The screen. I was apprehensive as it was just a 256k colour screen, but it is just gorgeous! The touch response is really smooth as well.
* Apps and games run smoothly. Few 3D games work well, some don't work at all, depending on how demanding they are.
* Loads of internal memory (503...

Nice phone but with caution !!

This phone is feature rich and works like gem and can give many high end smartphone, a run for their money. The only problem I feel with this phone is with its SAR value which indicates its radiation level. Before buying this phone I couldn't get SAR value for this mobile. After purchase I could see in the box that it has a value of 1.5 when the standards set the threshold limit at 1.6. And I believe that this value changes based on network strength. The manual itself cautions to keep short t...

Pretty good phone - except for looks

I tried this phone out at a mall for about 45 minutes. The phone felt surprisingly fast and lag free (well almost). There were some lags when loading very heavy pages in the default browser - very minimal in my opinion. Camera has autofocus and did focusing pretty well , I even tried an ultra close macro with lot of text. However seems like it has a lot of noise and heavy noise removal was visible. This phone uses a MTK6575 processor - which uses a single core cortex A9 paired with a SGX531. ...
