Karbonn A50 - Expert Reviews


Karbonn is slowly but surely building a name for itself and has been fighting a close battle with Micromax. One has to say this based on the recent performances of their smartphones wherein, Karbonn is edging out its Indian smartphone-manufacturing counterpart. The recent smartphones from Karbonn has been a fantastic bargain from the point of view of value for money and is economically feasible for customers. So at this point of time we have the Karbonn A50, which is another cheap Android device that aims at providing heavy specifications to the user. With a 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive touch screen, Karbonn A50 is an easy and smooth device to work with. It has a length of 116mm, a height of 67mm and a thickness of 12.3mm. Now since this is a budget smartphone there would be a few compromises on certain aspects and with Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, Karbonn A50 does not exactly provide the user with the latest Android version. But Ice Cream sandwich is still a fair bargain and would provide access to loads of games and apps. The hardware is solid too, with 1GHz processor while the connectivity features offered include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and USB port. A 1300mAh standard lithium-ion battery charges the smartphone and yields a talk time of up to 5hours and a standby time of up to 200hours. Considering the low mid range battery, this is not a bad performance at all.

The dual SIM facility also adds value to the gadget with two GSM SIM slots. This means that the user can use two numbers for staying connected with his or her friends and family members. The camera is of 3megapixels, which is better in pixel strength as compared to a lot of others in its class. There is also the flash facility along with the digital zoom feature. Music player, Video player, and FM radio handle the multimedia side of the device providing the latest offering in terms of songs and videos that the entertainment world has to offer. The internal memory is of 512MB which is good enough to buy the user some time for extending the memory further. In case the user exhausts this memory space, he or she can use the microSD card slot that has a 32GB stretchable limit. STK, Screen Saver, Wallpaper, Power On/Off Animation, Caller ID, CLID with Photo, Call Conference, Languages (English)Calculator, Alarm Clock, World Times, Speed Dialing, Voice Recorder, Currency Converter, Health Management are some of the other applications that the smartphone offers.

Operating system and UI

Karbonn A50 has a 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touch screen display that is supported by a modest resolution of 480 by 320pixels. The swiping is not that tough but in case of playing games, there would be some sluggishness, especially if the game is high in configuration.

Other Features

Karbonn A50 supports the formats like MP3, MIDI, WAV, and AMR as far as the music player is concerned. The user can hear the music through the earphones or the loudspeakers. Videos can be watched in formats of MP4 and 3GP. FM radio as usual provides its services in the field of popular radio stations.


Karbonn A50 has taken a middle ground in the camera department with a 3megapixel primary shutter that is neither too fancy nor too vague in terms of pixel strength. At a resolution of 2048 by 1536pixels, images can be snapped with relatively better clarity as the digital zoom and LED flash help the user in difficult backgrounds. Video recordings are not that impressive but usable.


Karbonn A50 has a default browser that is built-in for providing surfing facilities or downloading data features. Songs, videos, games and images can be downloaded on to the device if the space permits. Wi-Fi can be fruitful for connecting wirelessly to the web in case the user wants to use a nearby connection.


Karbonn A50 has a healthy padding of 32GB with a microSD card slot at the top of the gadget. The internal memory is not exactly low but 512MB is bound to run out of space at some point of time. If used to its full limit, microSD card can let the user store data like songs, games, images, and videos.

Other Features

Karbonn A50 has various games that are pre-installed in the gadget while other popular Android games like Angry Birds, Temple Run, and commando can be downloaded from the Android online store.


Karbonn A50 garners a talk time of up to 5hours and a standby time of up to 200hours with the help of the 1300mAh standard lithium-ion battery. The multimedia usage time is lengthy but internet usage is a little lower than ideal.


The Karbonn A50 offers Bluetooth and USB port for data exchange while GPRS and Wi-Fi are more conventional features for internet access. Also, Wi-Fi hot spot has not been provided.

Other Features

Karbonn A50 when compared to Micromax A51 Bolt has a similar screen size with 3.5inches and both the displays are backed by similar resolutions as well. The RAM is more in the case of Karbonn A50 and so is the case in terms of internal memory. Both the smartphones have a microSD card slot with a 32GB limit. The camera is 3megapixels with Karbonn A50 while the same is 2megapixels with Micromax A51 Bolt. The battery strength is more with Micromax A51 Bolt as it is powered by the standard lithium-ion power back up of 1500mAh as compared to the 1300mAh from Karbonn A50. The talk time and standby time however is more with Karbonn A50.
