Celkon C17 - Expert Reviews


Celkon has not really ruled the roost so to speak but they have maintained their position in the rural market. The company has been existent for a considerable amount of time but the arrival of new entrants has made their life difficult. Also, Celkon has not attempted to up the ante on their marketing strategy with only a handful of customers currently aware of their products. This is evident from the fact that Micromax came later but has managed to penetrate with innovative products and innovative marketing tools. Celkon C17 has a 2.4-inch display that has a bare minimum resolution of 240 by 320 pixels. The pixel density reciprocates with the low-end theme of the device offering a pixel density of 1667ppi. Celkon C17 has a length of 111mm, a breadth of 49.6mm and a height of 14.5mm. The overall look of the device is nice and sober with a microSD card slot on the top, a camera at the back and a spot for connecting a earphone to the device. There is no compatibility with a 3.5mm jack, which is a kind of drawback for the devcies as most of the sound output gadgets works well with this support. There is however a music player for listening to the desired songs while a video player is also arranged for viewing videos. Now to expect much from the multimedia features in terms of quality would be unfair and their sheer existence should be a privilege especially at the price range in which they fall. A digital camera is provided for clicking pictures but the same fundamentals of the multimedia features apply here as well. The device has a tiny internal memory that can be used for keeping 300 phonebook entries, 20 dialed, 20 received and 20 missed calls. Beyond that, some kind of external intervention would be required. That external intervention comes in the shape of a microSD card slot that lets the user enlarge the external memory of the device up to 8GB. If that happens, the user can keep a massive collection of data which may consist of songs, games, images and videos. The device is compatible with the dual SIM facility, which is probably one of the major factors apart from the battery strength that would attract a consumer towards this gadget. The user can thus carry on with two GSM SIM’s in the same device at the same time in active state. Roaming charges would thus be protected saving time and money. Having mentioned the second major factor of the device already, the 1,000mAh standard lithium-ion battery of the device churns out a talk time of up to 6 hours, which is satisfactory apart from the standby time of up to 400 hours. There is no Internet facility with the device with no GPRS or EDGE. Bluetooth and USB port are provided filling in some space as far as the data connectivity features are concerned. Available in the color of black, Celkon C17 has a FM radio for accessing radio stations along with some other utility features like flash light and a few games.

Operating system and UI

Celkon C17 gives a 2.4-inch display that can be interacted with the alphanumeric keypad. The screen runs on a resolution of 240 by 320 pixels along with a pixel density of 167ppi.

Other Features

Celkon C17 has a music player and a video player that performs at a average level while a FM radio player is provided too for listening to the popular radio stations. Music can be heard with the help of a loudspeaker or through the earphones. There is no compatibility with the 3.5mm jack.


Celkon C17 offers a digital camera for clicking pictures and shooting videos. Camera quality is, well, okay at best, and saying that is also being generous. 


Celkon C17 has no Internet facility.


Celkon C17 has a meager internal memory but the padding of the microSD card slot enables the user to elongate the external memory of the device up to 8GB. The user can then store a huge reservoir of data including songs, games, images and videos without worrying about the memory space running out. The built-in memory is still good enough for storing 300 phonebook entries, 20 dialed, 20 received and 20 missed calls records.

Other Features

Celkon C17 has a decent number of games for entertainment purposes. Since there are no Internet facilities, there is no provision for downloading any more games and apps from the web.


Celkon C17 is aided by the standard lithium-ion standard battery of 1,000mAh that grants a decent talk time of up to 6 hours along with a standby time of up to 400 hours which is also formidable.


Celkon C17 has reserved data connectivity features including the Bluetooth and USB port. There is no GPRS or Wi-Fi but the above mentioned facilities lets the user exchange data with other devices either wirelessly through the USB cable.

Other Features

Celkon C17 when compared to Lava Arc9I has a similar screen size with 2.4 inches but the latter has the access to Internet with WAP browser and GPRS. Celkon C17 does not provide GPRS or WAP browser in the first place. Both the device have a microSD card slot that has the 8GB memory expansion capability. In terms of battery strength, 1,000mAh standard lithium-ion power backup accompanies both the gadgets but the talk time is significantly better with Celkon C17 as it provides 6 hours as compared to 3.5 hours from Lava Arc9I. The standby time is also better with Celkon C17 with up to 400 hours as compared to Lava Arc9I’s 280 hours. Dual-SIM facility is accommodated for both the devices but Lava Arc9I has VGA camera as compared to the digital camera offered by Celkon C17.
