Overall review of Karbonn A9+

This phone is definitely an improvement from its predecessor A9. It comes with a lot more internal memory - an improvement from 512Mb to 4GB. The microSD slot allows you to expand up to 32 GB memory. Even though it cannot be considered as a premium smartphone, it is definitely a value for money. I have received a unit few days and I have taken a quick look at it. Overall it looks good. In next couple of days, I will be using this phone extensively and will be doing a detailed hands-on review.
