India has turned out to be a massive playground for smartphone makers all around the planet. But apart from all the big names around, the native handset makers are also getting into the act.
The smartphone market has seen a lot of action over the last few years. We already have a host of big names in the mix such as Samsung, Sony and Apple who are anyway top names in the market, and yet the market remians open with more and more players entering the arena.
Keeping the discussion India based for the moment, two names that are constantly striving for greatness in the still open market are Micromax and Karbonn. And if you are all into smartphones, you won't have problems recognizing them.
Both Micromax and Lava have similar ambitions in the market. And that ambition rests on top of the table among smartphone makers in the country. Keeping up the trend, while Micromax has come out with its brand new Canvas XL2 handset, Karbonn has outed the new Titanium S19 handset to move ahead with the times.
So if we were to keep all others out of the mix and concentrate on these two handsets, who do you think has a better chance to shine? We take a look at a specs comparison between both.
There's nothing much to choose from here since both the companies maintain their record of pushing out handsets with Android KitKat. And these two new handsets aren't any different.
The Micromax Canvas XL2 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS QHD display with 540x960 pixels. And hence it comess same as most of its rivals in the market.
The Karbonn Titanium S19, on the other hand, offers a 5-ich capacitive display with 720x1280 pixels and 16M colors.
In the camera department, the Micromax Canvas XL2 features a 5-megapixel camera, having a resolution of 2560x1920 pixels, with autofocus and flash support. The device also has a secondary 0.3-megapixel camera on board.
Karbonn Titanium S19, in this instance, offers a 13-megapixel primary camera with flash support. The device also has a secondary 5-megapixel camera on board that's more than enough for conducting video chats.
The Micromax Canvas XL2 offers 1GB of RAM and 4GB on-board storage. Also, there's the option to expand the phone's memory up to another 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory has been given.
The Karbonn Titanium S19, in this respect, offers 1GB of RAM with the devcie arriving in 8GB internal memory variant. Also, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to another 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory has been provided.
While the Micromax Canvas XL2 is equipped with a quad core 1.2 GHz CPU, the Karbonn Titanium S19 comes with a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor.
While the Micromax Canvas XL2 offers a massive 2500 mAh battery, the Karbonn Titanium S19 juices up the device via a 2000mAh battery.
While Micromax Canvas XL2 has been listed via the official at an unnamed price tag, the Karbonn Titanium S19 has been given a price tag of Rs. 8,999.
As you may see, both the handsets have their own special reasons to make it to users in the long run. While the new Karbonn handset is mainly focused on offering a device that supports great selfies, the Micromax device has its own specialty.
However, if we were to find a winner between both of them, it has to be said that the Karbonn Titanium S19 has a better chance of doing good in the long run. And with its sub 10k price, we are guessing that the device will have a lot of takers.
