The manufactures of karbonn mobile phones are continuing their quest to provide phones in Indian market that give a lot of options for mid-range customers with the launch of the new karbonn s5 titanium we are looking at specs that are decent and get the work done for today needs, with an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen giving a resolution of 16 M colors at 220 pixel density with a 5 inch display one of the best budget phones out there additional specs include 1 GB Ram along with a Qualcomm snapdragon MSM8225Q quad core powering the phone at 1.2GHZ a decent Adreno GPU 203 the phone does churn out decent scores on benchmark test conducted by us. We were a bit surprised on how it was able to match some of the heavyweights in certain areas, with an android v 4.1 running out of the box the phones quad core processor run efficiently to make the phone zippy enough for daily usage. the battery is where the phone takes a hit with only a 2000 m AH battery to power the phone frequent charges are required for processor intensive applications for enthusiast mobile gamers it means frequent charging and carrying a charger all the time for it.
The 8 MP pixel autofocus shooter along with a front facing camera gives out decent and above average pictures with some added features like picture modifications one has options to make the most of the shoot the camera takes great still shots and has 720p capabilities while recording which lower than what the competition in the market that it is logging head with.
The stock UI provided by the phone maker makes it easy to navigate with slight modifications done the certain aspects to the menu the phone makes it easy for new and experienced android users to accustom to the phone interface. The phone has 4 GB of internal memory and expendable memory slot the dual SIM capabilities are standard part of this range something that Indian customers look for in a phone. The problem arises as it does not allow applications to be installed on expendable memory cards making it difficult to manage large apps or games that require huge space. A user becomes restricted as they only have 4 GB of space for their applications to reside in. Hope the manufactures can take care of this slight problem.
The phone comes bundled in with in ear headphones giving out an average sound quality but keeping in mind it been a budget phone the sound quality is decent also with sms threaded view MMS, Email, IN accelerometer, proximity sensors and compass along with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n which is ideal for any person on the move, with 3G support available on the phone one can be certain that good speeds are available in 3G circles. The added light sensor does aid in screen brightness aiding in improved viewing while been in sunny conditions as well helps improve battery life.
