Micromax is an experienced Smartphone brand among all of these. Their Canvas series of android Smartphone’s flourished all over the world since past few years and is still at the peak of its advancement. Canvas series has shown some Smartphone’s which even competed against the Samsung galaxy series. Karbonn wasn’t even in a frame before they released their Titanium series and it has proved reasonably profitable and dominant for them but is still lagging behind Canvas series. Lenovo is also coming out with some gleaming stuff to show off to the world.
Lenovo didn’t need to build their market for their android Smartphone’s because they are already well-known laptop manufacturers and have been trusted by customers since ages. The new comer Gionee is also buzzing around internet within no time. We will compare all these Smartphone’s from the brands described above to show who is in the lead among these and who is lagging behind. It will make you clear to choose a Smartphone from the given models after you will thoroughly read our comparison. It is going to be much more informative than any other comparison makers because we will guide you and give you step by step suggestions. Most of all our comparison will be most detailed with every minor thing taking in consideration. Starting from os to the battery strength everything is going to be clear.
Operating System of these Smartphone’s:
1) Micromax A114R Canvas Beat : Android OS 4.2.2 (jellybean)
2) Karbonn Titanium S5 : Android OS 4.1 (jellybean)
3) Lenovo S660 : Android OS 4.2 (jellybean)
4) Gionee Elife E5 : Android OS 4.2 (jellybean)
They are all working on the same jellybean platform with slight difference of versions but it doesn’t make anything clear. Micromax A114R Canvas Beat has got the latest version of jellybean installed but Lenovo S660 and Gionee Elife E5 has also got better version of Android OS 4.2 (jellybean) which is not rather bad. Karbonn Titanium S5 is lagging here with the most basic version of jellybean installed. It will create a difference but we can’t judge any one of these due to small variations of versions, basically all are jellybean.
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat has got Broadcom BCM23550 Quad core 1.2 GHZ cortex A7 processor along with Broadcom Videocore IV GPU.
Karbonn Titanium S5 is powered with Qualcomm MSM8225Q snapdragon 1.2 GHZ Quad core processor provided with assistance of Adreno 302 GPU.
Lenovo S660 houses a Mediatek MT6582M Quad core 1.3 GHZ process and Mali-400MP2 GPU for added enhancement.
Gionee Elife E5 is also standing side by side in a tug of war. It also features 1.5GHZ Quadcore Cortex A7 processor along with PowerVR series 5XT GPU.
It’s so amazing to watch that every Smartphone enlisted here has got quadcore processor for efficient multitasking and application management. Obviously Gionee Elife E5 is much most fast than others mentioned and after that Lenovo S660 has got slightly better processing speed than rest. Micromax A114R Canvas Beat and Karbonn Titanium S5 has also got nice speed of 1.2 GHZ and quad core processors make it even more faster. Among all of these Smartphone’s Gionee Elife E5 is the best in processing speed as discussed already.
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat and Karbonn Titanium S5 both feature a 5.0 inch IPS LCD capacitive display with pixel density of ~220ppi. Lenovo S660 has got 4.7 inch IPS LCD capacitive screen with pixel density of~234ppi and Gionee Elife E5 features 4.8 inch super AMOLED capacitive display with pixel density of~306ppi. Its touch screen is protected
Page Breakwith Corning Gorilla Glass 2.Vowwe.This new comer Gionee is looking in great innovative passion. An AMOLED display plus Gorilla Glass 2.What can be better than that in this class? Canvas Beat and titanium S5 has got only 0.2inch bigger display than Gionee Elife E5 but it overcome that with AMOLED technology and Gorilla Glass 2.Lenovo has also got fair 4.7 inch display and there’s nothing bad in that but we are searching the best to suit us and Gionee Elife E5 has got that up to here. Let’s move forward.
All these Smartphone’s have got an 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash. Micromax A114R Canvas Beat is the one making difference here with its dual LED flash instead of single but it doesn’t make any big difference here neither does it effect on any other quality of Smartphone. Micromax A114R Canvas Beat, Lenovo S660 and Gionee Elife E5 have got exactly same additional camera features which include geo tagging, touch focus and face detection. Karbonn Titanium S5 is lagging in the additional features because it has got only geo tagging option available. Now let’s see if front camera can make a huge difference between these Smartphone’s.
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat and Karbonn Titanium S5 have got 2MP secondary camera, Lenovo S660 features a VGA camera while as Gionee Elife E5 houses a 5MP front camera. Front camera has again proved Gionee Elife E5 the best. While Micromax A114R Canvas Beat and Karbonn Titanium performed average with 2MP only which is quite fair but is very disappointing from Lenovo S660 side.
Whenever we talk about the performance of the phone .The first thing that comes in our minds is it’s RAM. Here also we will discuss the performance of these Smartphone’s based on their RAM.
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat, Lenovo S660, Karbonn Titanium S5 and Gionee Elife E5 have stuck on the same line. All these Smartphone’s feature a 1GB RAM that’s fairly enough for Smartphone under this range. All these brands have concentrated well about their Smartphone performance and reached the same conclusion of providing 1GB RAM to their Smartphone. On the basis of RAM all these are good performers but as discussed earlier Gionee Elife E5 have made a mark of being best with its exceptional 1.5 GHZ processing speed.
Storing capacity-Internal Memory:
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat has got 4GB internal memory out of which only 1.5 GB is available to the user and that’s very low for such a good Smartphone .It could have been provided with better storage. Karbonn Titanium S5 has also got only 4GB internal memory but it’s much better than Canvas Beat because all the 4GB are available to user. Lenovo S660 has got 8 GB internal memory which is very nice. Gionee Elife E5 is again making a difference here with 16GB internal memory that is much more than all of this .But mystery behind this exceptional internal memory is that Gionee Elife E5 lacks card slot and you cannot increase its storage anymore that’s why they have already provided 16GB so that users will not fall short of memory.
Network and Connectivity:
All the enlisted Smartphone’s are 2G and 3G enabled dual sim Smartphone’s except Gionee Elife E5 which has got only single sim. All these Smartphone’s support different 2G and 3G frequencies as listed below:
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat 2G; GSM 900 / 1800
3G; HSDPA 2100
Karbonn Titanium S5 2G; GSM 900 / 1800
3G; HSDPA 2100
Lenovo S66 2G-GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 and GSM 850 / 1800 / 1900
3G-HSDPA 900 / 2100 and HSDPA 1800 / 1900
Gionee Elife E5: 2G; GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G; HSPA 900 / 2100
The single sim of Gionee Elife E5 supports maximum 2G and 3G frequencies. It’s a brilliant effort.
Bluetooth: All these Smartphone’s have got Bluetooth version 4.0 except Karbonn Titanium s5 which has got Bluetooth version 2.0 which is too old now but still works good.
WLAN: All the enlisted Smartphone’s are wifi enabled providing the same quality but slight difference in their speeds which won’t cause much problem. More exactly its Karbonn Titanium s5 which is lacking a good amount of wifi speed and the rest are good in their speeds.
Who lasts long?
It’s very significant feature of android Smartphone to have good battery backup otherwise it makes you stick to the charger because of instant battery drainage. Therefore, this factor also needs to be examined thoroughly. Let’s take a look.
Micromax A114R Canvas Beat : 1900mAh battery
Karbonn Titanium S5 : 2000mAh battery
Lenovo S660 : 3000mAh battery
Gionee Elife E5 : 2000mAh
It’s very clear now if you want the best battery life you will have to sacrifice other high end features and compromise on the average rated specifications of Lenovo S660.But 2000mAh is quite nice batter so you can go for Gionee Elife E5 with brilliant specifications and a good battery back. Micromax A114R Canvas Beat with only 1900mAh battery lags behind all of these and after this Karbonn Titanium S5 has a good battery but it suffered in some qualities above. It’s the exact truth that Gionee Elife E5 topped in all features so it’s the most recommended product while Lenovo S660 overcome by its exceptional battery life. The rest of the two were average products with average specifications.
