A value for money proposition.

from NDTV

After the launch of the Micromax Canvas HD, quad-core processors started trickling down to budget Android smartphones. The Karbonn S1 Titanium is one such phone. It's got a 4.5-inch screen so you can't exactly call it a phablet. Unlike other budget phones that are powered by a quad-core processor, this one doesn't run on a Mediatek chip but on a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip....


After the launch of the Micromax Canvas HD, quad-core processors started trickling down to budget Android smartphones. The Karbonn S1 Titanium is one such phone. It's got a 4.5-inch screen so you can't exactly call it a phablet. Unlike other budget phones that are powered by a quad-core processor, this one doesn't run on a Mediatek chip but on a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip.

The Karbonn S1 Titanium is a plain looking phone bearing the usual rectangular slab design with rounded corners. The front of the phone features the 4.5-inch qHD display, four capacitive touch buttons for navigation, and the front camera lens, in addition to the proximity sensor and the earpiece. The bezel is not that wide on the sides but it takes up a major part of the front extending above and below the screen. The order in which the capacitive controls are placed is a little awkward.

The Karbonn S1 Titanium is a decent budget smartphone option. A 4.5-inch screen phone, with a quad-core processor, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
