2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 0 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Decent build quality
  • There are no sharp edges and with a 5-inch display, the device is compact enough to be used in one hand

Display

  • Decent display - reasonable colour reproduction, and viewing angles are good too
  • The sunlight legibility of the display is sub-par

Software

  • Close to stock Android UI
  • Although the UI is mostly stock Android, but there are too many annoying, unnecessary pop-ups/ads pushed by Karbonn in the notification panel - leading to a spammy experience

Performance

  • Poor performance - the phone tends to lag and stutters in not just opening apps, but occasionally even in simple tasks like going through the app drawer or just scrolling - even while browsing the Aura 4G has trouble dealing with more than three more tabs on Chrome at a time - with just 1GB RAM on-board, the core performance of the phone is rather weak

Camera

  • Average rear camera - especially images shot in low light are just plain bad
  • The front camera is pretty average too
  • Both on the front and rear camera, you will do much better with the Xiaomi Redmi 4A in this price bracket

Audio

  • Good call quality

Battery

  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day
