Karbonn A7+ Review and Full Specifications

Updated on September 3, 2014

Karbonn recently launched four new smartphones into their arsenal, namely the Karbonn A7+, Karbonn A11, Karbonn A1+ and the Karbonn A21. I’ve already reviewed the Karbonn A21, and it’s a hell of a phone. If you haven’t checked that out yet, please feel free to go check it out, here. I’m sure that in the coming years Karbonn will make a huge impact on mobile sales in India and abroad. The smartphones that they are releasing are all packed with awesome features and will surely give all the major brands a run for their money. The recently launched Karbonn A21 saw them foray into the dual-core phone market. This is something that the other minor phone brands like Micromax, Spice and Lava didn’t think about. I think it is the first smartphone from an Indian brand that has a dual-core processor. Now for the time being, keep all that aside, and let’s get into this review right away.

My Rating for Karbonn A7+

4 stars for Karbonn A7+

The new Karbonn A7+ looks awesome when you first see it. It has great finish and the body is really good and firm. It feels great to hold in your hands and the screen size is similar to that of the iPhone 4, that is, 3.5 inches. I think the phone is a little thick but I think its fine owing to its great build quality and sleek body. On the front side of the phone, there’s the 3.5 inch screen (obviously) and it comes with touch capacitative buttons (menu button, home button and the back button) along with one physical button in the center. You can also see the tiny microphone at the bottom right corner. There’s the micro USB port at the bottom of the phone. At the top of the phone is the power/unlock button along with the 3.5mm jack. Behind, you have the 5 megapixel camera with the dual LED flash. The problem with the camera is that it doesn’t have auto focus and the photos are not of superior quality. There’s also a front facing VGA camera for video calling. And the logo of Karbonn is given at the bottom, at the center. Just below that is the loudspeaker which of quite okay.

When you remove the back cover you can see the phone’s battery. The back cover is matte finished so it won’t attract any of your fingerprints. The phone is powered by a 1420 mAh battery. Under the battery is the dual sim slot, one for the 2G sim and the other one for the 3G sim. You also have the external storage slot right below the sim slots.

The hardware of this phone is quite impressive. It comes with a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. This is quite impressive for a phone that comes at a price of Rs.6990. It also has a 200 MHz GPU with which you can play most of the games like Angry Birds and Temple Run with ease. But don’t expect great performance on games that are of larger size, like Max Payne and Asphalt 7. The phone has only 157 MB of internal storage. This is a bit of a drawback, but the phone comes with an 8 GB microSD card. The screen is a 3.5 inch screen at a resolution of 320x480. The resolution is not great, it’s a little low. But you can’t get everything at this price. You’ll have to compromise for something. I played a few videos on the phone and what I felt was that everything was a little blue. Colors were not that great and all the videos had a blue tinge to it. Video quality was quite good but as I said earlier, I don’t like my videos have a blue tinge.

The touch sensitivity of this phone is what blew my mind. I thought this phone would never perform well as it was from a manufacturer that is not well reputed. But I must say I regretted my decision as soon as I got the phone in my hands. It was so smooth and fluid like. The screen is really responsive. You’ll have a great time with this phone and you’ll be wasting a lot of your time touching, scrolling and swiping through the menus because it’s really sensitive and responsive.

The operating system of this phone is Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. That is an outdated operating system considering the fact that all the smartphones releasing now come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But Karbonn has promised to give it the 4.0 update soon, but don’t expect it to come to you right away. I think you’ll have to wait for it for some time.

I would say just three words to anyone going to buy this phone. “Go for It”. I seriously think that this phone is a great performer. If you keep aside a few cons, this phone is a beast in its price range. I don’t even think the buyers will go for other phones in this price range that give substandard performance. Phones like Galaxy Y and Nokia Asha phones will have a tough time competing with the new phones from Karbonn. Both Galaxy Y and Asha phones are under performers when compared to the performance of Karbonn A7+. So people if you have not yet bought the Galaxy Y or Asha smartphones please don’t buy it, go for this phone instead. You will never regret your decision.

      Antony Aron, thanks for your comment. Other than the 1 GHz processor there are some minute changes that have been made in this phone. While watching videos Karbonn A7 has a bluish tinge and that has been decreased in A7 +. It has not gone completely but it is lesser. Other than that these two phones are pretty much similar to each other.
