Karbonn S5 Titanium vs. Micromax Canvas : Review
When there is something that has become such a vital part of life, there will be competition to pick the best among the rest and there is competition on the other end as well to produce the best too. While there have been some really amazing phones being manufactured by the world leaders like Samsung, HTC, Nokia and Apple there are few small scale companies like the Micromax and Karbonn, the ones that are also in the block providing tough competition to the companies.
As of now Micromax’s Canvas series and the Karbonn S5 Titanium Series are in close competition with each other in the Indian market. Well , if you are looking for a good Android phone for a small budget you could go for either of these as they of a pretty decent quality and would not burn a hole in your pocket too.
If you are in a dilemma to pick the best of these phones, here is a comparisoon between the phones; this is just comparison of the features that both the phones are offering, not a one to one comparision, where one phone is being cited of higher or a lower quality than the others.
The Micromax Canvas and the Karbonn S5 Titanium are powered by Jellybean versions for operating systems, but Micromax takes a better stance here as it runs on the Androi d Versi on 4.1.2 while the Karbonn S5 Titanium runs on Android version 4.1, but then both the phones perform pretty well ,provided they are running on Android’s Jellybean version, that has not been pitched with any complaints off late, but operating system wise the Micromax Canvas would be a star stealer for it carries an upgraded version of same. To support the powerful Android systems, both the phones are mounted on Quad Core processors of 1.2GHz each; that would be expected as the operating system is really up to the mark and updated.
The Micromax Canvas and the Karbonn S5 Titanium both sports stylish cameras of 8 MP each with a resoluti on of 324×2448 pixels and some of the features that are necessary with any smartphone for that matter, the only catch here that the Micromax Canvas being a newer version in the block, has some added features like the touch focus and face detection besides that the other features like the geo tagging, auto focus and LED flashlight are available on both the phones.The cameras mounted on both the phones are quite exceptional , for they carry some of the best of the features seen in most of the high end phones, manuf actured by companies of International recognition, but then there are reports that claim that the Karbonn S5 Titanium’s camera is terrible and thus the image or the video quality is also terrible.
Considering the camera al one both the phones stand neck to neck but if you would be consider every minor feature then again the Micromax stands tall .
Data connectivity wi se, both the phones go neck to neck in the competition as they more or less carry the same specifications both the Mi cromax Canvas and the Karbonn S5 Titanium support GPRS and EDGE and Wi – Fi b/g/n al ong wi th the Wi – Fi hotspot, Bl uetooth connectivity is also availabl e wi th A2DP, the only difference here is that the Mi cromax Canvas support the
Bluetooth version 4.0 while the Karbonn S5 Titanium supports Bluetooth version 2.0 and of course both the phones are equipped with USB connectivity just that the Micromax Canvas also supports USB on- to-go, again even wi th the connectivity features both the smartphones seem pretty decent, consi dering the USB on- the-go and the Bluetooth version to be better than in the Micromax Canvas, Micromax is a clear winner in the block.
Both the phones are built in with a memory of 32GB wi th 1GB RAM and an expandable Mi croSD card slot up to 32GB, it is quite cl ear i n thi s scene that there is no competition, both the phones offer the same features and the same capabilities. In the memory front both the Micromax Canvas HD and the Karbonn S5 Titanium have been on each other.
Both the Mi cromax Canvas and the Karbonn S5 Titanium are powered by 2000mAh batteri es, that woul d mean an approxi mate battery backup of 5 hours, not somethi ng really great as one would definitel y not want a phone that woul d gi ve a 5 hour battery backup, in this world of race and competition where everyone is i n a hurry to meet the deadl i nes, a dead battery would be frustrating, but i t i s not possible to make a judgment on this front, for both the phones offer the same amount of battery back on talk ti me.
Mi cromax Canvas i s tagged at a pri ce of Rs. 15000/- approximatel y, whi l e the Karbonn S5 Ti tani um i s comes wi th Rs.11990/- approxi matel y, a pri ce tag of quite much in budget for the Indian market and pocket.
Wel l , on an end note, both the phones are excepti onal l y good considering their make, the qual ity of both the phones are up to the mark. There i s no clear winner as such here, both are extremely well engineered phones, but provi ded the f act that the Mi cromax Canvas i s a newer versi on and an updated versi on of the all the other predecessor seri es, i t seems to be more promising than the Karbonn S5 Ti tani um.
Techni cally, it is wise choi ce to go f or the Mi cromax Canvas series for it is novel and more advanced than the Karbonn S5 Titanium. It woul d be a tough choice to make if Karbonn comes up with better models for the market as the Karbonn S5 Titanium does not seem to have appealed the masses. The Karbonn S5 Titanium fails to live up to the expectati ons of the masses on the whole and the Micromax Canvas HD i s a new kind in the block, but even then it has managed to grab the attention of the consumers.
The Micromax Canvas is a clear winner in comparision between the Micromax Canvas and the Karbonn S5 Titanium.
