KARBONN A21: Value for money
The display quality of 4.5 inch screen (960 x 540 pixels resolution) is crisp and the touch is pretty smooth and responsive. The camera quality is superb, the flash light is also good. The build quality is decent and the overall user interface is good and almost same as any high-end phone. There is fast internet over Wi-Fi and it even plays high definition games without any lag.
However, the processor although “Dual-Core” is very sluggish. You install a live wallpaper and the phone starts to lag. Moreover, phone charging is fast but discharge even faster. I feel that its 512 MB RAM is pretty less for a R10k phone. Battery was another issue. In my test-run, the phone’s battery lasted for around eight hours. But if you start watching movies, the battery will get completely discharged in about three hours.
Overall, a good phone when it comes to features and quality.
