Good Mobile at 9k rate

Product Good at price of 9000/-. Gives Android Jelly Bean so no problem of downloading any apps. camera quality is best in outdoors. compared with mature brands camera equals to 5 megapixel. Flash quality not up to mark. Handling very easy. Major limiting factor is its RAM. out of 512MB only 338 remains free out of which you get only 150 mb for your apps. you have to kill running apps, to run better. otherwise mobiles hangs. sound very low. running video quality good. but overall good for personal use.

Memory not as what is in website

Memory is less its not 512 MB but some what 300 MB. Other features are good. Unable to make video calls, but was able to receive video calls. Front back Camera is average. I am able to play temple run without any lag but the phone is slow. May be Jelly bean consumes more memory.

Karbonn rules the market

Karbonn is a new company which has come in the market only a few years back but in such short time duration, it has introduced some of the best mobile phones. A friend recommended me to buy the Karbonn A27 Retina and much to my surprise; the phone not only has all the latest features but is also very affordable. It is supported by a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and also runs with a dual sim which according to me are the best features of the phone. Also, I feel that apart from these a very strong battery backup is what makes the phone stand out amongst all the other phones. Collected through an in-person interaction with the customer.

Outstanding mobile phone range by Karbon

Recently, a lot of new mobile phone companies have come up in the market with some of the most amazing range of smart phones. One of those companies is Karbonn. This company has been providing a great and affordable range of Smartphones at all times. Because of the great response from this company I decided to buy the latest model introduced by the company which is the Carbon A27 Retina. This phone by Karbonn is powered by an extremely strong and durable processor. It is equipped with the 1.2 GHz Dual core processor which makes the mobile phone function really fast. What works the most for me is that it has dual sim. It has now become very easy for me to download all the important applications that I require. Also the phone has a good storage capacity. It has a RAM of 512 MB and a ROM of 4GB whereas the free space is of almost 3GB which is further expandable up to 32 GB. I do not have to worry about the phone getting slow due to downloading of many applications. The latest android version enables the easy download of the all the latest technology. Another amazing feature of the phone is the strong battery backup of the phone. It can run for long hours without any kind of interruption. Video calling is also enabled on the laptop with an outstanding front camera. I feel that the phone has an amazing touch quality. Another main feature of the phone is the super-fast Wi-Fi service. I think the phone has all the recent technology and features and has exceeded all my expectations. I would thus recommend it to all those people who are planning to buy a new phone because it has great features and also has a sleek and classy design. Collected through an in-person interaction with the customer.

Affordable range of mobile phones

I had decided to buy a new Smartphone recently but was very confused about which one I should choose. So I tried my hands on the Karbonn A27 Retina. This phone is very affordable but despite that it is equipped with all the latest technology and amazing features. One of the best features includes the strong battery backup that the phone has. It runs for long hours without getting interrupted. The camera is another highlight of the phone. It also has a front camera which supports video calling that has made it very easy for me to keep in touch with my family and friends. I feel that the phone is equipped with great features and is available at a great price. Collected through an in-person interaction with the customer.

The best mobile phone by Karbonn

The market is overflowing these days with many mobile phone companies introducing the best smart phones which were the reason of my confusion. One of my friends suggested me to buy the new mobile phone launched by Karbonn. Karbonn has now been a big name in the gadget market for quite some time. I decided to buy the A27 Retina and I am very satisfied with its features. It has a sleek and slim design which looks classy. Also, the storage capacity and battery backup are the main reason why I chose to buy this phone. It works for long hours without uninterrupted service. Also, it runs on the latest android version-Jelly bean. Collected through an in-person interaction with the customer.
