Celkon Monalisa ML5 complete features and price detail


Celkon Mobile has entered the quad core smartphone world with their latest smartphone Monalisa ML5. They have kept very interesting name for this smartphone. I hope it have some smart meaning for the phone too. Or it might be the new smartphone series from Celkon which will focus on smart images enabled smartphones. With the first look it seems to be above average piece but in accordance with its competitors at the same price tag, it seems to be a very average smartphone with lot of better options retailing at same price sticker.

Celkon Monalisa ML5 specs

It hosts a 4.5 inch screen with qHD resolution. it further comes with OGS display which according to officials delivers very vibrant and real colors for all the related elements. It runs on Android 4.1.2 Jellybean OS. It is the only thing which I don’t like about this machine. At present, most of the smartphones (with half price tags even) are offering Android 4.2 Jellybean minimum. But Celkon has still used the old OS. On the performance aspect, it will deliver well but in the comparative front it will make ML5 weak only.

It uses quad core 1.2 GHz processor for its performance. It is further complimented by 1 GB Ram which looks powerful for providing a decent quality multi-tasking experience. 4 GB ROM is given for internal storage. Out of this 4 GB space, you will be able to use 1.71 GB memory. Rest of the memory is occupied by system apps. You can expand it to 32 GB in all the cases. I think you will have to use SD card most of the times as 1.71 GB is nothing for a smartphone.

Coming with the dual SIM option, it boasts an 8 MP rear and 2 MP front facing camera. Both the cameras will deliver very high class imaging quality. For better connectivity, they have paired it with 3G, Wi-Fi, u-USB ports. Micro-USB ports doubles as a charging port. The same option is there with MMX A210 Canvas 4. To host all the things for decent time, it features 1800 mAh battery. But very frankly one smartphone is not assumed to come with such battery capacity. It will disappoint you only.

Price and availability

Celkon Monalisa ML5 is announced for Rs. 10,999. At this price point, you will get lot of quality smartphone from companies like Nokia, Micromax, Lava, Xolo and Karbonn. According to me it is not the right slot for lunching smartphones with such usual specs. Even the company like Nokia (we will miss it now) has launched Nokia Lumia 520 in around this price slot. It is a very powerful piece that acquires this slot completely.
