Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Apart from efficient and advanced call management, I'd also like my smartphone to be able to perform functions like Document Viewer, Outlook Email and much more, just like the Karbonn A90. Although the Karbonn A90 might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the Karbonn A90, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Karbonn A90 is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Karbonn A90 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Karbonn A90 will not even last me a week. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Karbonn A90 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Karbonn A90 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 1 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. Even the lowest graphics games need RAM higher than this. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Karbonn A90 was its 4 inches display. The screen size of the Karbonn A90 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 5 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. The small 0.512 GB internal storage of the Karbonn A90 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
