Karbonn A21: All Things Root thread
Karbonn A21 is a hell of a smartphone powered by a mighty Dual-core snapdragon processor which clocks at 1.2 GHz. The phone is priced at INR 10,499 and is available for around INR 500-1000 less than the MRP. The snapdragon processor ensures lagless performance of the device and is able to handle the 480x800 resolution of the device. The only drawback is the 400 MB ram that's available to the end user. The tagline for the device says: "Style meets Technolgy" and the device indeed looks stylish and gives a premium feeling. Just if this device had packed 1 GB ram, it would have been a killer combo of specs and price.
Other specs of this device include:
5 MP back camera
1.3 MP front camera
4.5 Inch capacitive screen
External Memory: Upto 32 GB
Internal Memory: 4 GB
Sales Package: Handset, Charger, Battery, warranty card, headset
RAM is being reported to be 1 GB by many websites, I would want anyone having the device to confirm that.
1800 mAH battery
5 HRs. talktime, 200 HRs. standby
Dual SIM, Dual standby
