All the three Smartphone’s present here are originated from low budget Indian Smartphone market. These Smartphone’s have been replicated under Android One project from Google which aims at providing high quality features at cheaper price for developing nations. After joint venture between Google and Indian Smartphone brands which include Karbonn, Micromax and Spice, these three Smartphone’s are the outcome yet. It’s just the beginning of the mission to make high quality Smartphone’s affordable for every citizen of India.

Karbonn Sparkle V vs Micromax Canvas A1 vs Spice Dream UNO

Here we are to fetch that which manufacturer has produced the best quality Smartphone out of the given three Smartphone’s under Android one frame work. It’s expected that all these brands have worked energetically to make it best and cheapest but we still need to discover the big brain among the three which makes difference. Let’s get started.

1. Display Configuration:

Karbonn Sparkle V: 4.5 inches capacitive display with resolution of 480X854 pixels.

Micromax Canvas A1: 4.5 inches capacitive display with resolution of 480X854 pixels.

Spice Dream UNO: 4.5 inches capacitive display with resolution of 480X854 pixels.

The fact arrived before us clearly defines homozygosis. Under the common initiative, all the three brands have been governed to keep the same display configuration for these Smartphone’s. This may be because of the fact that even a little higher display quality couldn’t be affordable at this price label. The concern has to be laid on processing too.

2. Performance:

Karbonn Sparkle V: 1.3GHz dual core MediaTek processor with 1GB of RAM

Micromax Canvas A1: 1.3GHz dual core MediaTek processor with 1GB of RAM

Spice Dream UNO: 1.3GHz dual core MediaTek processor with 1GB of RAM.

The same fact comes out here also, not even a single bit of distraction is seen among these Smartphone’s. They are identical in the most essential features so far. The optimistic thing we can observe is that besides a good processing speed a good amount of RAM has been coupled. This means that Google is greatly concerned about the performance of these Smartphone’s.

3. Storage:

All the three Smartphone’s possess 4GB internal storage and is expandable up to 32GB via SD Card. As Google clearly understands that internal storage is not the issue here when we talk about performance. It can be expanded further so they didn’t consider any reason for making good internal storage which will increase its cost unnecessarily. The owner’s wishing to have more internal storage can use SD cards on their own.

4. Camera:

A 5MP primary camera + LED flash and 2MP front shooter. This camera configuration has been maintained in all the three variants of Android One project Smartphone’s. 5MP primary camera being an average feature for low budget Smartphone is natural but 2MP front shooter is outstanding in this class. The possibility of providing this is very difficult task easily managed by these brands in collaboration with Google.

5. Network and Connectivity:

This section flows constantly always between the Smartphone’s of same standards so does here. The 2G and 3G network compatibility is present in all the three Smartphone’s and connectivity modes are basic Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi.

6. Battery Backup:

A 1700 mAh battery is present in all the three cases. There is no diversity seen in this feature too at all. We are expecting this 1700mAh battery to run these Smartphone’s pretty nicely. This is a good battery for a budget Smartphone.


One of the most favorable factors of these phones are their price point. Cheap affordable and durable that what all of these phones are aiming at. The price of the phones are as follows

Karbonn Sparkle V 6399‏/- Rupees

Micromax Canvas A1 6499‏/- Rupees

‎Spice Dream UNO 6299/- Rupees‏

Out of all this, we come to the conclusion that all the three Smartphone’s are actually one Smartphone i.e. Android one precisely which has been replicated under three Indian well known Smartphone brands. We appreciate the collaboration and efforts laid by Google to provide us with such highly configured Smartphone’s at an ordinary price label.
