Our Take on Karbonn S1 Titanium
While the specifications of Karbonn S1 Titanium looking good, yet there will be serious issues with the sale of the phone. First being, the availability of four buttons below the screen which gives a hint that the phone was originally designed for Android Gingerbread and later on upgraded. Also its looks are not very impressive when we compare them to the rivals including Galaxy Grand.
The price of Karbonn S1 Titanium is set around Rs 12,999. Also Karbonn cellphones are generally considered as less durable and people have also complaint about bad after-purchase customer support. So one may thinking of going with Micromax A116 than this one.
