Comparing between mobiles is nothing out of the blue these days, especially with so many devices arrving from a host of vendors almost everyday. And needless to say, it can be quite a hectic ordeal to keep a tab on whatever that's releasing these days.
Speaking of keeping a tab, the mobile market that's India-based has been quite a booming one, going on par with the other such big and open markets, if not better. The Indian market has also been helped by a number of big name manufacturers such as Samsung, Apple and Sony slowing flowing with their own offerings.
While the companies have been flowing in, in abundance, it's also needed to be said that the flow has been backed up by a host of India-based companies such as Micromax, Karbonn and others. And one such company is Karbonn with its newly released Titanium S1 Plus handset.
But, other vendors such as Microsoft are also piling up the pressure with their own releases in the same price segment that looks to take the market before the end of the year. And one device looking to bring that kind of impact is the new Nokia Lumia 630.
So if we are to keep everything and everybody out of the current equation, where do you think the devices will stand when put against each other? Let's take a closer look.

Big difference in this respect since both the devices have their own set of OSs that run the devices effectively.
While the new Nokia Lumia 630, as expected, makes use of the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, the Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus comes running the Android Jelly Bean OS.

Nokia Lumia 630 Vs Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus: Verdict
Keeping the prices and the operating systems of the devices aside, it may seem like both the devices have been made similarly to each other, more or less. However, the segment where we think the Karbonn device has better chance is only by the fact that it's an Android powered handset.
However, on every other front, the Lumia 630 takes the cake (not considering the amount of RAM available) with its improved additional memory allocation and better battery backup. But, since its a Windows Phone-powered device, Microsoft will need to wait a bit if the device is indeed to be a hit.
