Karbonn K27 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

With the more Android devices coming out with huge screens, faster processors, massive power backups, holding the latest versions of operating system every next month, sometimes it becomes difficult to contemplate why the use of mobile phones first came into existence. The mobiles handsets used to be much simpler back in the days and the screen sizes was never a issue but somehow Apple has changed the way one looks at the phone and what is desirable from it. But we won't talk about the high profile dual core, or quad-core or now the octa-core processors. We would rather take you to a much simpler phone by the name of Karbonn K27. The device weighs 92gm including the battery and has the dimensions of 116.5mm x 46.5mm x 17mm. It has a miniscule screen size of 1.8-inch, for some it would be hard to believe that such a screen size does exist. The resolution offered by the screen is 176 x 220 pixels and has 65k colors to further back it up, although one has to admit, that is not much of a back up. The internal memory of the device is 16MB plus another 32MB that can only allow the user to store as much as up to 250 contacts along with 100 SMS's. The microSD card slot does provide the user with some cushion by providing 8GB stretchable external memory that could store loads of data including songs, games, images and videos without worrying about the memory space running out.

The digital camera does exactly produces images that can hung on the wall but a camera is always useful to have around in case there is a requirement of clicking some pictures. There is also the camera zoom facility through which the user can click pictures from a substantial distance with a little more quality. Music player and a video player allows the user to listen to popular musical tracks along with watching latest videos. The former of the two is compatible with the format of MP3 player whereas the video player supports MP4 and 3GP player. The 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. FM radio player is for listening to the radio stations that are accessible in the concerned cities where the user can also record the relevant songs as per his or her need. The standard lithium ion battery of 1700mAh is one of the stronger parts about the device, which gives a formidable talk time of up to 7 hours along with a standby time of up to 500 hours. The dual SIM facility has slots for two GSM SIM's which would come in handy in case the user wants to keep two numbers while travelling to a different location. Other important features offered by the device include STK, Wallpaper, Power On/Off Animation, Caller ID, CLID with Photo, Call Conference, Anti Theft Feature, Calculator, Alarm Clock, Speed Dialing, Voice Recorder, Hindi Language.

 

Operating system and UI

Karbonn K27 has a minimal 1.8-inch TFT screen that gives 65k colors along with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. There is not much to talk about in the display department with the device being more about utility than a fancy one.

 

Other Features

Karbonn K27 has the FM radio player through which all the desired radio stations can be accessed where songs can also be recorded while the music player lets the user listen to the popular songs. Moreover, users can enjoy watching average quality videos via an integrated video player. 

 

Camera

Karbonn K27 comes with a digital camera for clicking pictures with the digital zoom facility being the only additional support feature. Videos can also be shot but things like LED flash and geo-tagging are absent. 

 

Connectivity

Karbonn K27 does not have any support for Internet.

 

Memory

Karbonn K27 has a internal memory of up to 48MB but the microSD card can extend the storage capacity up to 8GB. If used to its full potential, the user can store massive amount of data including songs, games, images and videos.

 

Other Features

Karbonn K27 has limited number of games and apps. The device is not built for gaming, that is for sure but one can pass his or her time by fondling around.

 

Battery

Karbonn K27 is powered by the standard lithium ion battery of 1800mAh. The user gets a talk time of up to 7 hours which is more than what some of the other low scale devices have to offer. The standby time is also up to 200 hours.

 

Connectivity

Karbonn K27 offers the Bluetooth facility that allows the user to connect with other devices wirelessly so as to transfer data to that device and vice-versa, where the data exchanged may include music files, games, images and videos. There is also the USB port through the device can be connected with computers or laptops via USB cable.

 

Other Features

Karbonn K27 when compared to Spice M5200 has a smaller screen size with the former featuring a 1.8-inch screen as compared to 2-inch screen offered by the latter. The camera offered by Spice M5200 is also better with 1.3 megapixel as compared to digital camera offered by Karbonn K27. Spice M5200 again steals the show with the 1800mAh standard lithium ion battery as compared to the 1700mAh  battery offered by Karbonn K27. Thus, the talk time and the standby time offered by Spice M5200 is also more than Karbonn K27. Both the devices have the alphanumeric keypad to interact with the device while overall look of the handset is more or less the same.

 

Other Features

Karbonn K27 released last year but one of the important traits about low specs devices are that they do not have much to live up to. Hence the device is still appealing to those who want to own it. The device has a 1.8-inch screen and comes with a digital camera but the battery is the one feature that steals the show with a 1700mAh standard lithium ion power back up. Some of its highlighted features are briefed below.

· 1.8 inch screen
· 1700mAh standard lithium ion battery
· Digital camera
· music player + video player + FM radio
· Dual SIM
· MicroSD card slot up to 8GB
