Karbonn S5 Overview

Published :

The Good

  • Powerful processor
  • Vibrant display
  • Very good touch response
  • Premium looks

The Bad

  • Terrible camera
  • Serious issues with playing HD videos
  • Build quality is a mixed bag

The Bottom Line

Karbonn S5 Titanium is a decent phone competing with Micromax Canvas HD. S5 Titanium has some decent and cool features like it's design, processor and touch response which really makes S5 worth a look.

If you thought that only Micromax Canvas HD can compete with huge leading brands in the market then think again. Karbon has launched it's latest Android smartphone with a quad-core processor at a budget price-point,Karbonn S5 Titanium. It is up to the S5 Titanium to prove that it’s not just Micromax who has the capability to do that.

Design And Build:

The Karbonn S5 Titanium is a good looking phone which does look like a larger Nexus 4 from the front. Build quality is a mixed bag since although the phone feels solid, there are some issues. The back of the phone is made of thin, glossy plastic that feels slippery. The phone's back cover is difficult to take off and requires much wrestling with the help of your fingernails. The placement of the microUSB charging port at the top of the phone is also strange since most devices have that port at the bottom.

Camera Performance:

The 8 megapixel camera with auto focus is built to capture precious moments that brighten up your colorless existence. The flash near the camera, which also doubles as a flashlight, ensures that low light does not affect the clarity of the photos that you take. The Karbonn S5 Titanium also sports a convenient 2 megapixel secondary camera and supports video recording as well.

Display Clarity:

This Karbonn device sports a 5 inch capacitive touch screen that supports qHD display with 540 x 960 pixel resolution that make the colors and clarity stand out of the crowd. The IPS display on the phone makes for better viewing angles and the pinch zoom feature makes day to day smartphone usage that much easier.

Processing Speed:

The performance of the phone is quite impressive. The processor powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 MSM8625Q which compares favorably to the MediaTek chips used in most competing devices. Multitasking is effortless because of the 1GB of RAM provided. Day to day operations are completely lag free and the phone doesn't have any problems with playing popular games like Temple Run.

Power On It:

A 2000 mAh battery powers the Karbonn S5 Titanium giving you up to 13 hours of talktime on 2G and up to 11 hours on 3G. Battery life is just about average and it manages to last a day of regular use. The battery takes longer than usual to get fully charged.


The main competition for the Karbonn S5 Titanium is the Micromax Canvas HD  but if the price difference is little more between them, its not a problem as Micromax is the better buy. The Canvas HD has a better camera, outperforms the S5 Titanium in a majority of the benchmarks and a better looking display. Apart from the lower price-tag, there’s really no reason why you should go for the Karbonn over the Micromax. If Android is not a strict requirement, then you should also consider the Windows Phone powered Nokia Lumia 620.

Hey Naman - Bug Issue


Naman, When I compare S5 v S6, higher of the two processors should be compared. Eg. It is comparing 1.5 ghz of S6 with 1.9 of s5. Parvinder (Bhavans-Essar)
