I also have a Samsung Grand and Karbonn Titanium S5 and which phone is better in terms of performance. The camera which is with Titanium S5 is not as good as Grand's camera. However its not bad either. The build quality of Titanium S5 isn't less than the Samsung Grand. My hands on experience tells me in terms of performance Titanium S5 performs identical to Samsung Grand. So it makes it a better buy.
