Karbonn S5 Titaniumn

From some time now in Indian market there has been a flood of budget smartphones from the Indian manufacturers like Karbonn and Micromax. Karbonn S5 Titanium is one of them it is a successor to the S1 Titanium from Karbonn. Karbonn S5 Titanium is powered with Quad-core 1.2 GHz Processor with 1GB RAM, It also powered with 8MP camera and 2 MP secondary camera for video calls etc.It also has Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery which is not bad for the phone in this price range. Now Lets Review its features in detail.

 Design/Build

Karbonn S5 Titanium looks bit diffrent from its predecessor S1 Titanium as it looks very glossy and it is quite thinner than its predecessor. Although it is quite thicker than the smartphones available in the market with the kind of specs Karbonn S5 Titanium have.

Front side of the phone showcases the 5 inch qHD display. It is also powered with the front facing camera of 2 MP for video calls. On the bottom of the phone’s front side their are three feather buttons for recent apps, Home and Back. Now when we come to the back side of the phone it looks very glossy and their is a rear camera of 8 Mp with LED flash. On the left side of the phone their is the volume rocker and on the right side their is a power key. Micro USB port and 3.5 mm audio jack are located at the top of the phone whereas the micro SD card slot and SIM card slots are located under the back cover.

Display

Karbonn S5 Titanium haves the 5 inch display with ~220 ppi . It has good color saturation but with the low qHD resolution doesn’t do any favors to the phone either with the visible of softness in texts and images. We really do wish that mid range Android smartphones should start moving to 720p displays to provide a better experience to end consumers.

Software

karbonn S5 Titanium runs on Android 4.1 jellybean. Karbonn has not apply any custom skin on the interface of the phone it is pretty much like stock android interface which indeed looks good. Karbonn has given some pre loaded apps in this Phone like Gmail, Google Plus, WhatsApp, We-Chat, nexGTV, TOI, News and Weather, Flipboard and PayTM. S5 Titanium’ s interface looks very clean indeed.

 Camera

Now we come to the camera on the back side of the phone their exist 8 MP shooter with auto focusing capabilities. The phone also has the LED flash located at the right side of of the camera to help the 8 MP  camera to shoot good quality images even when the light is not appropriate. This Karbonn S5 Titanium can also shoots video of 720p which is quite good. This Phone is also powered with secondary camera of 2 MP for video calling located on the front side of the phone.

Images taken by primary are okay in day light but when we take the images in low light or in night the image suffers from excessive noise. images taken by this also not takes much details about it colors, etc. But in this Price range this phone is very good option to have.

Battery Life and Performance

Karbonn S5 Titanium is powered with 2000 mAh battery to which i think is little less for the kind of hardware this phone has but the company says its enough for this. We’d recommend charging the phone overnight to avoid getting stuck with a dead phone the next day.

Verdict

At last we will say that Karbonn S5 Titanium is very good smartphone at the price of Rs. 10999. But it iss lagging in its harware like the phone should have little more battery life to handle the phone’s big screen and quad core processor.
