Karbonn A90 and A35 dual core ICS smartphones launched within Rs. 7,000 range


Karbonn A90 and A35 are two latest dual core smartphones from the Indian brand Karbonn. Last week they have announced/launched three Android smartphones with medium range price tags. Now they have repeated it again with two latest pieces. Once again I have to say that I don’t know the reason why they are focusing one single price range with such huge number of smartphones. Karbonn should try to learn the value of quality from Chinese brand Xiaomi which sold 100K mobile pieces within just 86 seconds. So according to me rather than investing time and value in such repeated gadgets, they should try to develop something unique with the features that every mobile user wants to live with.

Karbonn A90 features

It is a 2G enabled smartphone with 4 inches 480x800 pixels screen. It runs on Android 4.0 IC OS with the power of a dual core 1 GHz processor having 512 MB RAM only. Frankly speaking then I am not going to buy a 2G smartphone with ICS OS when I can have 3G + Jellybean smartphone at the similar price range (even less). It is a dual SIM phone with full support to GSM networks.

It equips 5 MP rear and VGA front facing cameras. FF camera without 3G is pretty similar to a gas burner without LPG cylinder or connection. LED is given along its rear camera which improves the low light capturing. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB are some another connectivity features that are provided with this smartphone.

Its ROM is limited to 512 MB only. It is again a big con and asks you to use external SD card in all the conditions. It is built on 1400 mAh battery only. It is a below average battery which can provide very average backup only.

Price: Rs. 5,490

Karbonn A35 features

On the comparative front it is a smarter piece than A90 but still it lacks in major points like 2G connectivity, 512 MB RAM, Android ICS OS etc. It features a wider 5 inch 960x540 pixel screens that provides better vibrant color experience. It has 2 MP front facing camera lens that is again a useless tool without 3G. You will have to depend on web applications for video chats. 4 GB ROM is given with this phone that can be expanded to 32 GB. It scores 1800 mAh on battery scale which will again provide the similar kind of backup (for 5 inch). Rest all specifications are similar to A90.

Price: Rs. 7,490

How to buy

You can buy both the phones from any online as well as offline retailer in India. But please don’t forget to check out other smartphones from Lava and MMX. You will get better phones at same price tag.
