    Default Is Karbonn A15 worth buying?

    So I'm thinking of getting my sister a Karbonn A15. Is it worth buying? Has anyone used it here? Any kind of feedback would be really appreciated.

    Karbonn A15 Micromax A68 Verdict
    Android 4.0 Android 4.0 same
    4.0" 4.0" IPS same
    480X800 480X800 same
    3MP 5MP + LED A68 wins
    Qualcomm MSM7627A (cortex A5) + Adreno 200 Mediatek MTK6515 (cortex a9) + PowerVR SGX531 A68 wins
    512MB 512MB same
    4GB 2GB A15 wins
    1420 mah 1600 mah A68 wins
    3G no 3G A15 wins
    5.9k 6.5k A15 wins

    camera quality won't be great even with 5MP + flash but the processing side, its a big hit. Similarly, A15 has 3G and lower pricetag.

    also you missed one thing, no GPS on Micromax.. Personally id go a bit higher and buy A110.. No 3G is a fail

    6.5k max. Yeah, the A110 is a good buy for a bit higher price, but it's ppi is really low. Is there a similarly specced phone with ~4 inch screen? No 3g nowadays is a joke, the Mmx A68 loses out for that. And no GPS? Seriously, what were Mmx thinking?

    Karbonn A9+ is available for 8.2 K on flipkart.. Anything cheaper and you will miss out the dual core processor

    3G still cost 2-5 times as much as 2G so A68 is aimed at those who use only 2G.

    check Lava XOLO A700. Highest ppi under 10k.

    fone is good.. but The battery life is very poor and the charging to 100% takes a very long time!

    Pro...
    1 Ghz Processor which support almost all android aplications
    Large Screen with excellent resolution.
    Excellent white back cover
    3G & WiFi Hotspot options..

    Cons..
    Poor RAM,
    Camera is only 2 MP
    Battery life is not good

    So, what do you guys think? Should I go for the A15? Anyone know how the after sales service of Karbonn in Kolkata is, or is Mmx better? (And I'm def gonna need good after sales service if my experience with the Mmx A60 (loved it while it worked- the only indian droid to have quite decent dev support) is anything to go by.)

    Ebay has some good CDMA phones for you to buy if you are on a tight budget. Problem is you will have to port your number to Reliance CDMA.

    I don't want to use CDMA, so that option is out.
