    wow this i a great phone it just rocks If you planning to buy a new Android smartphone based on quad core processor but have a tight budget you can consider Karbonn Titanium S5( Rs 11,990). If we compare Karbonn Titanium S5 AND MMX Canvas HD A116,only the canvas HD has better display. AS MMX canvas HD is not available in market we can go for Karbonn as it comes with same features as MMX canvas HD has. So Just go for Karbonn Titanium S5....!!!!!!!!

The phone is really Good with its sharp display , camera is above average , user friendly Battery Backup can be decided on after using for a month or so 3.As its a brand new battery Allow it to drain completely a couple of times & charge fully 4.Use on minimum brightness for 30seconds to get a good battery back-up

    VIJAY SALGOTRA (Apr 1, 2013) on Flipkart
    Just used to this phone from a friend. It's far better than others. Processor spead is really unmatched and Camera is also good. Karbonn should gift a case to the customers to attract them to purchase this phone. I am giving 5 starts to this phone.

    Chetan Parekh (Apr 1, 2013) on Flipkart
    nice phone with snapdragon quadcore processor... 8 m p camera. really a nice budget phone for them who wants their work faster from anywhere not for gaming... karbonn had started using snapdragon processors while other indian products using mediatech and other cheap processors..... Conclusion: Micromax A116 Canvas HD vs Karbonn S5 Titanium Well, if your primary concern is gaming you must consider Micromax Canvas HD. But if you are a casual gamer and you need to a good looking smartphone with some cool hardware specs go for Karbonn S5 Titanium. This will save money and time as well.

    got this phone two days ago.. here is my experience => good touch => looks premium class ! => very slim.. => camera ok type! => plays all the games but after playing some high def games it gets heated up => network good ! => display above average! => plays 720p videos not 1080p! => can install games in sd card ! in short go for it you won't be disappointed!

Its fast processor, smooth UI interface, sleek design, high internal memory . Infact its a complete package. (vikasbansal.cse) of g0gl u can ask.

  • Awesome
    Syed Ausaf Ahmad (May 1, 2013) on Flipkart
    Bought my phone from flipkart was delivered in 2 days :-) . I am not facing any problems whatsoever. Dont know what other people are complaining about. Neither do i experience network dropping nor lagging. U cant expect the phones battery to work for a week(Like chinese phones) keep in mind this is a smart phone with quality specs. All the other phones with similar specs give more or less same battery back-up (around a day or so). The phone has a "premium quality feel with great screen and slim body" touch is perfectly smooth.rear Camera quality great, front camera is surprizingly good Best phone in its price range. Jab haath me le ke dekhoge tab pata chalega ke nokia aur samsung ke 20k wale phone bhi S5 ke aage paani bhartey hain... I told u what i experienced and hope u will go for it, but who can stop u from spending money on high priced phones if u just want to get a branded phone....
