Detailed Review


Display

This smartphone presents a resolution of HVGA, 480x320 pixels. The Karbonn A51 sports a display of 8.89 cms; approximately 3.5 inches. The display size provided by the phone may not work in your favour as much as a slightly bigger screen.

Battery



Camera

Though it's taken over by the latest entrants, yet the Karbonn A51 does feature a Yes MP front camera; but no point spending money on a feature that might be of not much use to you. The kind of pictures and videos your camera produces does not depend only on megapixels. Depending on the sensor quality and the smartphone's other applications; you can get surprisingly good photography results even with a Yes, 3.2 megapixels camera. As much fun it might be to click pictures, video recording is equally great.

The handset colour featured here is White. The Karbonn A51 packs in numerous boasts of such as Document Viewer, Document Editor, Outlook Email, Office Suite for the all the road warriors out there. Like most of the popular smartphones in the market, the Karbonn A51 sports a touch screen.

With a built-in Bluetooth, this phone can sync with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. You get a Dual Sim, GSM, GSM sim with this smartphone.

If you primarily utilize your device for at par purposes such as emailing, chatting, calling and messaging, then the 2G connectivity offered should meet requirements. If you want to avoid the exuberant charges levied by the 3G and 4G networks, the standard 2G network connectivity of this smartphone makes it a cellphone that's definitely up your lane. A higher network type are able to result in increased power consumption, and you occasion to contemplate on this while making a decision.

Memory

The Karbonn A51 is absolutely compatible with the microSD, which can help you boost the internal storage of the device. The lower capacity of internal memory may raise a few eyebrows as it only satisfies basic utilities. Basic functions may not be an issue with the 0.256 GB ram but it is not good enough for those who use their phones for more complicated apps. Many users find multimedia FM a refreshing change from their regular playlists. All your images, videos, music and books have the flexibility to easily be accommodated in the 32 GB extendable storage offered by this Karbonn A51; this entire space is available for storage unlike the pre-loaded internal storage.

The popular operating system android makes sure the latest apps and trends are available to you. The Android v4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system is responsible for the pleasurable performance of this device. The Karbonn A51 sports a platform that operates at GSM - 900, 1800 GHz. Equipped with a 1 GHz processor frequency, the Karbonn A51 offers a power packed performance. A lower frequency would mean the device would endure longer to respond, so for a smoother performance, a higher frequency would be ideal. The speed required by most typical apps are satisfied by the Karbonn A51 without any hindrance.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Document Editor, Outlook Email, Office Suite present in this device. 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 A51 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 A51 makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Karbonn A51 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 A51, 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. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Karbonn A51 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

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. 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. 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 3.5 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Karbonn A51. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Karbonn A51 very cramped. Yes, 3.2 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. The internal storage in the Karbonn A51 is quite stingy with the tiny 0.1 GB. I don't know what it is good for when it can hardly hold any of my media files.
