Karbonn Titanium S5 vs LG Optimus L5
LG Optimus L5 also holds good in competing with the all new Karbonn Titanium S5 but the competition is not too tight. LG Optimus L5 has a screen of IPS LCD Capacitive touch with a screen resolution of 320 x 480 which is comparatively lower than the Karbonn Titanium S5. Optimus L5 runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS with a processor speed of 800 MHz and 512 MB RAM which gives it a lower category than the Karbonn Titanium S5.

The internal memory also differs by 5 GB i.e. Karbonn Titanium S5 has an internal memory of 8 GB and that of LG Optimus L5 bears internal memory of just 3 GB. But both smartphones have a capacity to support an external memory via micro SD card up to 32 GB.

Comparing the features of the cameras of both the cellphones, Karbonn Titanium S5 has a camera of 8 Megapixels while the Optimus L5 possesses only 5 MP primary camera and no secondary camera (2 MP in Karbonn Titanium S5).

The battery capacity is higher in Karbonn Titanium S5(2000 mAh) as Optimus LG has battery capacity of only 1540 mAh.

After going through all the features and specifications of both the smartphones, one can expect a lower cost of Optimus L5 than that of Karbonn Titanium S5 but, it is other way round, as the Karbonn Titanium S5 costs just with a launching price of Rs 11,990 and in case of LG Optimus L5, its price is Rs 12,999. So, one can now easily choose the better among the two i.e. Karbonn Titanium S5 and LG Optimus L5.

Samsung Galaxy S2 is also one of the smartphones which has been challenged by Karbonn Titanium S5 with a hell of difference in the features. The first difference is that Karbonn Titanium S5 runs on 4.1 Android Jellybean OS and Samsung Galaxy S2 on the other hand, works with just Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Both the smartphones have capacitive touchscreens (Karbonn Titanium S5 with qHD IPS Capacitive touchscreen and Galaxy S2 with TFT Capacitive touchscreen). Karbonn Titanium S5 comes with a 1.2 GHz Quad core processor while the Samsung Galaxy S2 comes with 1.2 GHz Dual core processor. Also, both cover the RAM memory of 1 GB to run and process smoothly. The screen resolution of Karbonn Titanium S5 is higher than Galaxy S2 to offer a better experience regarding the quality of images, videos or any other content viewed on it.

Taking in consideration the features of the cameras, both the mobile phones have same features in this field, i.e. both possess the primary cameras of 8 MP and secondary cameras of 2 MP. The screen size of Karbonn Titanium S5 is 5 inch but Samsung Galaxy S2 has just a 4.3 inch screen with a lower resolution. The internal memory of Galaxy S2 is higher than Karbonn Titanium S5 i.e. 16 GB and both smartphones support the external memory expandable up to 32 GB via micro SD card slot. The connectivity features in both the smartphones are same i.e. Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS and much more. In the field of battery backup, Samsung Galaxy S2 holds the stronger side by providing a backup of 9 hours of talk time and about 700 hours of standby. So from the above data, we can judge that both smartphones should cover the same price range i.e. around Rs 12,000 but the price of Galaxy S2 is more than double that of Karbonn Titanium S5 i.e. Samsung S2 has a price tag of about Rs 25.500in the Indian market.

Its a good comparison and writer has done well in describing the positive & negative points of each mobile.

The picture quality of the Karbonn Titanium S5 is higher (3468 x 2446 pixels) than that of the other two smartphones from Samsung and LG and the SAR radiation value is almost same in all the above 3 smartphones i.e. 0.8 kg/w approximately.

Please let me know about the SAR value for this phone. Because, as I have heard, the SAR value for this phone is higher than the recommended value.
I really wanna buy this phone, but only if the radiation should not affect me more ...

Please don't buy Karbonn mobiles. They don't have a customer care response. No response on call center number. No one to solve queries. Disgusting. I am very annoyed.
