Final review:

From the above review we conclude that Karbonn A5 has negative feedback from our side while Samsung Galaxy Y and Micromax A52 (Aisha mobile) preferred while looking low priced below Rs.8,000/- android mobile. But some of features like processor and OS, Dual SIM took away from other smartphone features consider while buying.

  • I don't understand how you can claim that MM A52 is better than the Karbonn A5. The only benefit that A52 has over A5 is the 200 Mhz more processing power. The camera resolution is the same. In fact, the screen on the A52 is smaller than A5 and so is the resolution of the screen. The Karbonn A5 has a proximity sensor which I feel is a must for any touch phone. The MM A52 does not have that. How does that then make A52 better than A5?

    • You can stream youtube on A5 very well.I am not confirmed about TV channel but browsing experience is good on A5. As me it is better android phone than Samsung Galaxy phones. The main major factor is battery backup. A5 has a good battery backup than galaxy. And when you can install any software from android market on an android phone then why we go to invest 10k for only samsung name ? All facilities you can use on A5.

    • We recommend Micromax Superfone A52-1GHZ processor 3G aisha mobile for look and style as well as features. you can check out specs and features.
