Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

A small device like this might neatly fit in my pockets, but that's all it can and nothing much with the cramped screen size of 4.3 inches. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Karbonn A14 4 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 don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Karbonn A14 4, however good the other features might be. Smartphones with larger memory is always preferred by me; this phone can't even hold images and videos which I save in a single week. The expandable memory of the Karbonn A14 4 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. Gaming on the Karbonn A14 4 with 1.2 GHz is decently fluid, not that exciting though; for the long haul however, I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming. Well, gaming on dual core is really bad with numerous hang-ups and extremely slow app load time. I wouldn't recommend such a low RAM even for the most amateur gamer; in fact for anyone. No clue what's the point of storage which can't even make enough room for my apps, leave alone my books and games. 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 4.3 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Karbonn A14 4. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Karbonn A14 4 very cramped. I can zoom in or zoom out images with pinching movements of my fingers on the screen of the Karbonn A14 4. And flick my fingers to rotate images or turn pages of ebook; that's why the Multi-Touch technology is really nice. Yes, 5 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 can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. 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. The internal storage in the Karbonn A14 4 is quite stingy with the tiny 4 GB. I don't know what it is good for when it can hardly hold any of my media files.
