Karbonn unveiled its first Android One smartphone today at 3:30pm along with Micromax and Spice. The Karbonn Android One Sparkle V went on sale on Snapdeal for Rs. 6399. As of this writing only the Magnum Blue colour variant went on sale but we are informed that the Karbonn Sparkle V will also be available in Mild Grey, Wild Red and Pearl White variants soon. Just like other Android One smartphones this one too comes with bundled freebies. When you buy a Karbonn Sparkle V on Snapdeal you get an 8GB microSD card, Snapdeal coupons worth Rs. 2000 and two Rs. 100 coupons from FreeCharge. Airtel will offer you Android KitKat upgrades and app downloads (200MB per month) without any charge for six months. Freebies over, let’s see what smartphone has to offer.

Karbonn Sparkle V 1

Just like every other smartphone in the Android One program, we find a 4.5 inch IPS Display with FWVGA resolution. Underneath the hood we get the same 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and 1GB of RAM entrusted with the task of running Android KitKat 4.4.4. The Karbonn Sparkle V will receive all Android software upgrades within the next two years including Android L. On the rear, we find a 5MP autofocus sensor with LED flash and on the front we get a 2MP snapper.

The internal memory figures remain dismal at 4GB out of which more than half is taken up by the operating system and bundled apps. As usual you get a 32GB microSD card slot to store more data. Even though Android One partners are not allowed to mess with the UI, they are still allowed to preload applications as we found out with the Karbonn Sparkle V. The dual-SIM 3G enabled smartphone has been preloaded with Snapdeal and other apps. The Karbonn Sparkle V is powered by a user-removable 1700mAh battery that is claimed by the company to last for 160 hours on standby and offer 8 hours of talk time. Sensor list includes G-sensor, proximity, light, e-compass, gyro sensors. Connectivity options are the usual bunch with Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, microUSB and GPS navigation.

As usual we have attached a spec sheet shootout that shows how the Karbonn Android One Sparkle V stacks up against its siblings Micromax Canvas A1 and Spice Dream UNO along with Moto E and our recently reviewed Xiaomi Redmi 1S.
