Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Karbonn A1+ that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Karbonn A1+ makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I like enlarging the images and text on the screen, which I do quite often, using my fingers instead of fidgeting with the settings and multi-touch on this phone allows me to do it. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Karbonn A1+ with good recording features is really good for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Karbonn A1+, however good the other features might be. The expandable memory of the Karbonn A1+ is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks great, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. I definitely need a multi-touch screen to zoom in or out on the gaming action and even flick the ebook pages. Well, the frequency never bothered me so much with reading, but gaming on this 1 GHz device is a nightmare. I wouldn't recommend such a low RAM even for the most amateur gamer; in fact for anyone. Even if your smartphone offers good amount of internal storage, extendable memory never hurts and is good to know that there's room left if you need.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 3.5 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Karbonn A1+. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Karbonn A1+ very cramped. I can zoom in or zoom out images with pinching movements of my fingers on the screen of the Karbonn A1+. And flick my fingers to rotate images or turn pages of ebook; that's why the Multi-Touch technology is really nice. Yes, 3 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images.
