Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Aside from efficient and advanced call management, I'd additionally like my smartphone to be able to Document Viewer, Outlook Email and much more, just like the Karbonn Smart A5i. Although the Karbonn Smart A5i might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it bids and even the functionality isn't worth the difficulty. I more than often choose for efficient devices like the as it offer me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth file sharing is really not of much stick with to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I desire having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Karbonn Smart A5i with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all sublime memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. I won't worry about the other possesses in the Karbonn Smart A5i as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. Smartphones with larger memory is always preferred by me; this can't even hold images and videos of I save in a single day. The extendable memory of the Karbonn Smart A5i is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones with high internal memory that additionally is furnished with highly confusing is credited with.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Karbonn Smart A5i is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Gaming is really a turn off on this 1 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. An internal RAM this low isn't competent in 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 first thing I noticed in the Karbonn Smart A5i was its 3.5 inches display. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. The Yes, 3 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You are able to easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think image be so cool with this phone. 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. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop or transfer files. The small 0.512 GB of the Karbonn Smart A5i feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage of it can't contain all my media files.
