    Design and Packaging:

    Karbonn has priced this phone in an entry-level range so you might think that built and design of the phone will not be so impressive but you are wrong.

Phone fits in hand very well with perfectly finished edges.

    Display / Screen:

    Karbonn Titanium S5 plus is good phone with 5 inch display with qHD resolution. Display is enabled with IPS LCD technology with the resolution of 540x960 qHD. As the phone is provided with IPC LCD display feature it is very bright and clear.It has agood pixel density of 220ppi which provides you with good viewing angle, vibrant and sharp display. Karbonn has made its flagship to stand out of the heavy competition by providing display with colour accuracy which is key point for Titanium S5 plus. Colours don’t washout when the phone is tilt which shows the good quality of the display.

    Display is good but glossy finish of the phone will act as magnet for the finger print and dust so you need to clean phone every time after use. Though watching HD videos is not much impressive due to low resolution, reading out text and other contents is very comfortable. HD gaming is again good, but not impressive due to low resolution. Karbonn should have provided titanium S5 plus with atleast 720p display as most of the competitors are out now with full HD or atleast 720p display. However, if you consider the cost, it’s a really good display.


    While the body and display of the Karbonn’s new flagship has got our nod, we assume that camera will also be good. Titanium S5 plus is given with 8MP camera which means you can click the picture of high resolution. Photos fired from this phone were very good as it produced good and vibrant colour. Day light picture was impressive and was very good in producing rich details but low-light images was little noisy but at an acceptable level. Camera is provided with good settings option so you can adjust the settings according to your needs and surrounding.

    Zero-shutter delay option and burst mode of the camera is very handy. Videos clicked by the camera were full HD so you can just shoot your memories in 1080p resolution and save it in your phone. We found little noisy video or to be more precise video was captured in full HD but had some colour washout, may be because of 3GP format of the video. Karbonn has provided with front camera of VGA for video calling and video chat. Front camera should have been atleast 1.3MP for better capture and video processing.

    Hardware and performance:

    Karbonn’s new flagship is installed with powerful quad-core processor and physical memory which allows phone to have superior performance of phone. Processor of 1.3GHz quad-core is sufficient to handle multitasking and heavy processing. RAM of 1GB provides allows you to store large amount of volatile data. Phone is provided with 4GB internal memory for storage of apps and other data; you can increase the storage by means of microSD card. So if your stuffs are more then you can expand the memory of your phone and store your huge collections of movies, videos etc.We tried stressing the phone by opening multi-window and perform several task at the same time but it was handled very smoothly by Titaniums S5 plus.

    Gaming on smartphone have become quite common and the good part is HD gaming is handled very well by Karbonn Titanium S5 plus. We did not observed any stutter while playing games, everything was handled with ease. We noticed that Phone went a little warm while playing games for more than half an hour and then showed some lag too. Good number of connectivity options is provided and connection does not drop much.Overall we can say that Titanium S5 plus is provided with good hardware specification, which outputs very good result of performance.

    Operating System and user Interface:

    Operating System running on Titanium S5 plus is 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version of Android. Most of the phones are out now with same OS version of Android. You are provided with custom layer on top which allows you to customize UI with different themes, font, wallpapers etc. As the phone is motorized by quad-core processor, OS is handled very smoothly and the response time was good with this OS.

    There are some apps pre-installed on Titanium S5 plus like File Manager, flashlight, whats app and many more. Karbonn may provide update to upgrade the phone with higher version of Android OS but for now Android 4.2.2 is very well optimized in this phone. User interface is really good and users would have a good number of option to customize their phone as per their will.


    Phone is featured with 1800 mAh battery strength which is little less for the smartphone which operates on quad-core processor engine and coming with a huge 5-inch display. You can play games and videos on your Titanium S5 plus continuously for more than 4 hours. If you are heavy browser and gamer then this phone will not last for 8 hours but for an average user this phone will serve good, for a day or bit more.If the battery is creating problem then you can replace the battery with new one as the battery in Titanium S5 plus is removable. You can depend on the third party apps providing battery saver apps to push your battery life to the maximum. Also if you keep your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other power consuming apps off then battery would stay for a really long time.


    If you do not want to shell out much money for smartphone but require some good performer then you can certainly opt for Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus. In 11k it’s hard to find a phone with a decent processor, RAM and OS. Karbonn has smartly placed really good features in this phone. Apart from the quadcore processor, the 8MP camera is certainly a delight for such a low budget.

    The screen panel, though not very impressive, is one of the best you can find in the low budget category. Resolution is a bit low but the built is tough and other features above average. There is tough competition of smartphones with huge display but you can rely on Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus in the low budget category.
