Karbonn S1 Overview

Published :

  • Big screen
  • Good speed

The Bad

  • Bad display
  • Bad Call Quality

The Bottom Line

Karbonn S1 Titanium is a decent smartphone which is loaded with tons of features at a low price range. The main highlight of Karbonn S1 Titanium is it's quad core processor.

Recently many high end smartphones were loaded with quad core processors giving better performance and speed. Adding the same features in the midrange smartphones with less price was like a dream. With release of Micromax HD A116 and Karbonn S1 Titanium, the quad core processor were also seen in the mid range smartphones. The Karbonn S1 Titanium is not only loaded with quad core processor but also 4.5 inches screen, dual sim capability and tons of features that too at a lower price range.

Design And Build:

Karbonn S1 Titanium has dimensions of 134.6 x 66 x 9.3 mm and weighs around 113 g which is really light, making it easy to carry around. The build is solid and the sides have brushed metallic design. The removable back cover is made up of plastic and extremely glossy making it fingerprint magnet. There are four capacitive buttons at the frontside. The microUSB port is located at the bottom. The volume rocker is at the side. The power button and 3.5 mm headphones jack are at the top. The front also features an ambiant light sensor and proximity sensor.

Camera Performance:

Karbonn S1 Titanium has a 5 MP camera which is loaded with tons of features like Geo-tagging, white balance, face detection, colour effect and red-eye reduction. Karbonn S1 Titanium has a front VGA camera which gives the option of video calling and skype. Karbonn S1 Titanium has a special feature of using front and rear camera together which is even present in Samsung Galaxy S4 . There is no image stabilization feature present so if you click images while moving the device or the object whose image to be clicked is moving then it results into blurred image output.

Display Clarity:

The display output of Karbonn S1 Titanium is not that good. It supports a 4.5 inch IPS LCD display with the resolution 540 x 960 pixels and pixel density of 240 ppi which makes the images and the text look sharp but the performance of the screen is low. The viewing angles and colours are poor and doesn't look that great. The colours feel oversaturated and the screen is not lit evenly making the corners look darker. Karbonn S1 Titanium supports upto five finger multitouch but the screen sensitivity is not so good.

Processing Speed:

The performance of the phone is quite decent. The processor powering the device is the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset which runs on old architecture. Much of the difference in the performance is not visible to normal people in terms of lags and hang due to architecture. Karbonn S1 Titanium hangs only when you load heavy processes like games and HD videos at 1080 pixels.

Power On It:

Like most of the smartphones Karbonn S1 Titanium has a Li-ion battery which has the battery capacity of about 1600 mAh. The battery gives about 200 hrs of standby time and 4 hrs of talktime including the 3G mode, WhatsApp chats, Twitter notifications, phonecalls and music.


Looking at the lower price and on charts features of Karbonn S1 Titanium, it looks like a decent deal to go for. The negative features like display quality, call quality and poor battery life lets it down. You can also check out Lava Xolo A1000 which is loaded with better features.
