Karbonn A7 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

There is no shortage in the number of tier 2 companies available in the country and Karbonn is another one. Although they have had a reasonable success in the last year or so, they are still not the audience's first choice. The company basically produces devices for the rural segment and does try to concentrate at the lower middle segment of the urban population as well. Also what a tier 2 company does, is provide users with cheap Android smartphones to choose from. Also since the brand name is not as big as some of the other major players, there would be more features than what their more reputed counterparts would offer for the same price. Karbonn A7 is another such example with the device that runs on the Android Gingerbread operating system and features a 3.5 inch HVGA display that gives a resolution of 320 by 480 pixels.

There is nothing special about the screen resolution which would be apparent on watching videos which would become blurry if zoomed. The camera is of 5 megapixel strength and produces nice pictures that justifies the pixel it represents while the LED flash facility also helps during low light conditions. There is also a secondary camera for video calling, whose addition would be another plus point. The device supports dual SIM facility that makes sure that the user does not have to switch SIM's or keep two devices for having two numbers. The device has a built in memory of 512MB which makes sure that the user can keep loads of data including music files, games, images and videos. The external memory can be further stretched up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card slot.

The standard lithium ion battery of 1,420mAh gives a good amount of standby time but the talk time offered is pretty less and leaves a lot to be desired for. Internet can be accessed through the WAP browser while Wi-Fi also provides wireless access to web. But as far as the other high profile features are concerned, like the Wi-Fi hotspot, are not available. A music player and a video player round up the multimedia features, which should keep the users entertained. Some of the other important features offered by the device include STK, Screen Saver, Wallpaper, Power On/Off Animation, Caller ID, Mobile TV, CLID with Photo, Call Conference, Languages (English), Calculator, Alarm Clock, Stop Watch, World Times, Speed Dialing, Organizer, Ringtone Composer, Voice Recorder, Currency Converter, Health Management, Built-in Data & Fax Modem.

Operating system and UI

Karbonn A7 has a 3.5 inch screen that gives a mediocre resolution of 320 by 480 pixels and can be interfaced with through the touch screen technology. Frankly, this is not one of the best screen qualities one would come across, but is fair according to its price.

Other Features

Karbonn A7 has a music player, which gives access to all the latest songs that the entertainment world has to offer. The music player further makes sure that the user can listen to his or her favourite songs in the formats MP3, MIDI, WAV, AMR, AAC, AAC+ whereas the video player that lets the user watch videos, supports MP4, 3GP, AVI, H.263 and H.264 video formats. Music can be heard through the loudspeakers or through the earphones that can be attached to the device with the help of a 3.5mm jack. There is an FM radio too for accessing radio stations available in the desired cities.

Camera

Karbonn A7 has a 5 megapixels camera that makes sure that pictures can be clicked at a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels. There is also the dual LED Flash facility that makes sure that the user can click pictures in dim light with clarity whereas the digital zoom facility can be used for clicking better pictures from a farther distance. Videos can also be shot while a secondary VGA camera for web calling is also provided.

Connectivity

Karbonn A7 has the Wi-Fi facility, which does well in terms of giving fast access to web and apart from this, you can also connect the Internet via GPRS and EDGE facility.

Memory

Karbonn A7 has an internal memory of 512MB, which should be enough for those who are not big on keeping a large collection of data but those who are, can avail the benefit of a microSD card slot that makes the device flexible in terms of memory. The user can then extend the external memory up to 32GB.

Other Features

Karbonn A7 has lots of games and apps that should keep the user entertained and engaged. More games and apps can be downloaded from the web as and when required with Android offering a huge domain of apps and games like Temple Run and Angry Birds.

 

Battery

Karbonn A7 is powered by the standard lithium-ion battery of 1,420mAh that makes sure that the user gets to operate on the device for a longer duration. The talk time offered is up to 4 hours whereas the standby time is up to 100 hours.

Connectivity

Karbonn A7 has tons of data connectivity features including the USB port and the Bluetooth facility where the former makes sure that the user can connect with other devices like laptop and computers via USB cable and the latter makes sure that the user can connect with other devices wirelessly and exchange data like songs, games, images and videos. The user can also charge device through the USB port. There is also the GPRS and EDGE facility where the former makes sure that the user can access the web and keep track of the desired location with ease and comfort.

 

Other Features

Karbonn A7 when compared to Micromax A50 has a bigger screen with the former featuring a 3.5 inch screen and the latter 3.11 inches. Both the devices have the dual SIM facility whereas the processor for Karbonn A7 is much faster than Micromax A50. There is a stark difference in the camera resolution offered by both devices where Karbonn A7 features a 5 megapixels primary camera as compared to Micromax A50's 2 megapixels camera. There is no secondary camera for Micromax A50 but Karbonn A7 has a VGA secondary camera that can be used for video calling. The battery strength is more with Karbonn A7 but the amount of talk time and standby time is same with both the handsets.

Other Features

 

5th July 2012: Karbonn A7 was released on 5th July 2012 at a price of Rs. 7,490 along with Karbonn Smart Tab 1 tablet and Karbonn A9 and A5 smartphones. The phone received mixed reviews both from the critics as well as the audience. The device did well with the lower segment of the population and is, at the end of the day, an Android featuring smartphone, though Gingerbread, which is an obsolete version of Android. The device has a 3.5 inch screen and a 5 megapixels camera with LED flash, which in combination makes up for a formidable device. The batter strength and the amount of standby time along with talk time is pretty disappointing as a low budget device is generally expected to deliver in that regard.
