Celkon A98 Black - Expert Reviews

Introduction

Celkon is one of the leading electronics companies in India to pioneer the spread of wireless and mobile technologies through smartphones in the country. Celkon A98 is an important product in the inventory of the company that dares to be in the same league as other big brand names in the smartphone world. Android system has opened new horizons to the world of mobile technology. Celkon has introduced Android systems in its mobiles in order to compete with the big brand names. This phone, Celkon A98 has dual SIM feature with great screen resolution, faster processor supported by Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 version OS. It also has 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM. So, it is quite clear that the phone is no less than the branded ones. Celkon A98 can beat others with its price as it has all the other features that a branded smartphone possesses.

Most importantly, this phone has already started using such features that are yet to be introduced in its top-branded counterparts. It would be better to take a look at the features to know why this phone scores more than the others. Celkon A98 is a touch screen high-resolution phone which works at an operating frequency of GSM 900/1800/WCDMA 2100 MHz | GSM 900/1800MHz. The capacitive touchscreen also makes a difference with its TFT color display. However, in respect of screen resolution, some users may find many other phones more useful than this one. A number of phones use LED screens instead of TFT screens. On the other hand, the presence of 3.2MP camera having 2048 X 1536 pixels resolution with digital zoom can show the difference.

Operating system and UI

If it is a question of fashionable looks, it may not look like the one until it is used. The phone has 4.0 inches touchscreen with 480 X 800 pixels of display resolution. The multi-touch screen comes with G-sensor, proximity and light-sensor that apparently are unmatched among other phone specifications. The speciality of multi-touch screen is its ability to operate at the slightest touch. The unique handset with multiple color mix is one of the most important features to make it look a bit ahead of its times.

In order to set a comparison with Samsung Galaxy Duos, Celkon A98 keeps a prompt mark of an advanced approach as it stands a few steps ahead of the other one in regard of the advantages it offers at a lower price. Not only that, this phone also has a longer battery life than Samsung Duos. That is why it can easily claim to double the fun quotient of using a smartphone in a smarter way.

Other Features

Celkon A98 is richer with different multimedia features like camera, high-end software services, apps and more. The phone sports a rear camera of 3.2MP with the capacity of 2048 X 1536 pixels resolution along with auto focus and flash. As there is a high-end megapixel camera at the rear end, the phone has a 0.3MP VGA camera at the front end to provide the user proper support for video calling. It is good to have a feature like digital zoom. It is easy to use this as a video camera also as it allows 3GP, 3G2, MP4, and WMV video formats.

Camera

The 3.2-megapixel camera with good picture quality is certainly not a matter that can take your breath away as there are other gadgets, which may do this work better than a phone. However, the picture quality is satisfying with its flashlight and there are different apps to edit the picture in a better way. The same can be told about the videos. However, it accepts all the formats of a video file and therefore, one may find the videos qualitative.

Connectivity

Celkon A98 uses Java MIDP emulator that supports different games and apps. The phone has its own Android and Wap2.0/HTML browser, and accepts Opera Mini that makes accessing internet easier. The users can easily download, upload, or keep on surfing internet the way they like. In fact, it could be considered as an envious possession. Wi-Fi connectivity with Bluetooth and EDGE Class 12 would surely make a statement for this set. The 1GHz processor in the machine is the perfect one to help run its course properly.

Memory

The phone has an internal memory with 512MB storage supported by 512MB RAM. The external memory setup can be extended up to 32GB through the use of microSD card slot. Therefore, it actually works like a PC device. The memory in the phone makes it different from others, as it is quite difficult to get a phone with these applications at the same cost.

Other Features

There are a number of applications in this smartphone. This phone runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich v4.0, which accepts numerous apps and games as well. Various popular games can easily be downloaded in this set. This phone has a set up of Polyphonic ringtone as well as MP3 tones. It also has FM radio connections. It supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, WAV, MIDI, MP2, and AMR music files. The presence of 3.5mm audio jack would be a better option to keep individual ears busy of listening to the tunes.

Battery

This phone comes with lithium-ion battery of 1800mAh that gives a talk time of 6 hours. It also has a standby time of 180 hours. However, the lithium-ion batteries are prone to be damaged if overcharged.

Connectivity

This phone offers GPRS, WAP, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity to the users. All these ports are well-known for their data sharing and transfer abilities. In fact, the USB of this phone is a remarkably faster medium to transfer data from computer to the phone. One can also put on the earphone jacks to take the advantage of having an upgraded music player in the phone as well.

Other Features

In comparison to Nokia Asha 310 and Lava Iris 355, Celkon A98 seems to score better with its 4-inch capacitive touchscreen and 3.2MP camera. The other two sets do not have these things. In fact, even Nokia does not use Android OS and hence, Celkon seems to have beaten the smartphone giant with its use of high end Android OS.

Other Features

16 February 2013: Released today, this phone along with its Java MIDP emulator, HTML, and most importantly Android Ice-Cream Sandwich version, is definitely better than any other phone of this kind. In fact, at a price of the same range like this, no phone has provided so much as it has. Its price begins from Rs. 4500 on online sites. Other specs are given below:
*  4.0 inches touchscreen with 480 X 800 pixels
*  Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS and 1GHz processor
*  3.2-megapixel rear camera + 0.3MP front camera
*  Connectivity options of GPRS, WAP, Bluetooth, and USB
*  1800maH lithium-ion battery with talk time of 6 hours and standby time of 180 hours
*  512MB RAM with external memory expansion to 32GB with microSD card
