|Amazon||Karbonn Titanium S109 Deep Blue||Rs. 3,999|
Karbonn is one of the leading handset maker in India when it comes to manufacturing budget segment handsets. The Titanium series of handsets is one of the popular lineups by the brand that offers good value for money to its users. However, it seems that the handset maker is now banking solely on this lineup and adding device after device to the same. Titanium S109 is an entry level smartphone in the same lineup that is a good alternative if you are looking for a secondary phone.
The design of the handset is standard bar form factor with attractive color options having matte and glossy finish. This handset comes with volume rockers and power buttons on either sides for convenient operation.
Karbonn has equipped this entry-level smartphone with a smaller 4.5-inch display that is barely enough for routine tasks. The resolution offered by the handset is pegged at 480 x 854 pixels, which is quite dull and also hampers the outdoor visibility on the handset.
The user experience offered by the handset is not cutting edge as it comes with Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system out of the box. However, Kitkat is one of the stabler release from Google and does not compromise upon stability or fluidity of the performance.
Performance and Battery Life
Coming to the performance, the handset has been equipped with a Quad-core processor that has been clocked at 1.2 GHz. However, the processor is restrained by the limited 512 MB of RAM installed by the brand. The rear panel of the handset houses a 1600 mAh battery, which may last a day's wprth of usage on single charge.
The camera setup on the Titanium S109 is a modest affair since it is an entry level smartphone. Its rear panel houses a modest 5 Megapixel camera that is ideal for routine photography but not for capturing special moments. On the other hand, there is a 2 Megapixel secondary camera on its front panel.
Being an entry level smartphone, this handset obviously misses out on 4G LTE connectivity. However, there is support for 3G connectivity that facilitates high speed Internet browsing. Other options include dual-SIM, Wi-Fi, microUSB, Bluetooth and GPS.
Karbonn Titanium S109 is an entry level smartphone that is not powerful enough to be a primary device of daily driver. This handset is an ideal choice for those who are looking for a secondary smartphone.
