Best value for money

I ordered the Karbonn A5 2 weeks back and I have been using it since then. I should tell you that this is the best phone available in the market at this price.

Music output is excellent. Video output is excellent (with MX player downloaded from market). Battery life is very good.

However, one major drawback is the int...

Very Good Low Budget Mobile.

I have this phone 3 weeks ago and its the best low budget phone i could find with all the features.
The best features about this phone.....
1. The screen is very large i.e., its got 3.5 inch HVGA capacitive touch screen and its touch response is good as Galaxy Y.
2. Got 800 MHz processor which is alright for Android Gingerbread and also got 512 MB RAM which is also the best feature. I would suggest that if you are going to buy android or Windows Phone you should look for 512 MB RAM or above ...

GREAT Phone at a GREAT Price!!

Hello People, I got this phone on Nov.14 and tell you what, its a amazing phone to have at a price range below 5k! The phone has got much premium specifications which are available in branded handsets like Samsung at a starting price of 8k or something! Though the 2MP Camera is a let down! The camera is provided just for a formality sake and nothing else. This phone has got the potential to install almost every necessary apps required to be in a smartphone. I have also installed a few games l...
