Camera

With the Yes recording modes of this smartphone, and a resolution of Yes, 3.2 pixels, shooting video is equally savourable as clicking pictures. The kind of pictures and videos your camera produces does not depend only on megapixels. You have the flexibility to get surprisingly good results even with a Yes, 3.2 megapixels camera when the sensor is of good quality. Though it's taken over by the latest entrants, yet the Karbonn A4 does feature a Yes MP front camera; but it is meaningless spending money on a feature that might be of not much use to you.

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 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.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Karbonn A4 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Karbonn A4 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I will need to delete or transfer photos every week if I choose this Karbonn A4 with its small storage space. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Karbonn A4 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 4 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. Gaming is really a turn off on this 1 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. An internal RAM this low isn't capable of handling any level of multitasking or gaming. Smartphone storage with such low capacity even for basic apps and programs is really irrelevant. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4 inches display of the Karbonn A4 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 3.2 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. The 0.104 GB internal storage is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
