Nokia Lumia 525 Vs Karbonn Titanium S4: Upper-hand Up for Grabs

    By Prarthito

    The Indian domestic smartphone market, very recently, has seen the emergence of a number of smartphones from a host of manufacturers like Micromax, Karbonn and others that has made the ultimate battle to the top of the table a much more open prospect with all the involved manufacturers looking to take the market as quickly as possible.

    As mentioned earlier, while there are a number of manufacturers looking to get to the top of the pile with their newly released smartphones, two of the biggest among them - Nokia and Karbonn - are also looking to impose some kind of authority on the market with devices such as the Lumia 525 and Titanium S4, respectively.

    Nokia Lumia 525 Vs Karbonn Titanium S4: Upper-hand Up for Grabs

    But exactly why and how can these two handsets provide a major competition for other big players in the market? Do they have what it takes to successfully reach the top of the pile? Let's take a closer look at the specification comparison between both the devices.

    Operating System
    While the Nokia-based Lumia 525 runs on the upgraded Windows Phone 8 Black OS, its Karbonn counterpart runs on the Android Jelly Bean v4.2. And judging by the current scene in the choice of operating systems customers currently have, while the Windows Phone operating system is on a slow but gradual rise with its notable tile-based setup and a dedicated ecosystem, It still has some time left before it catches up with Android - which offers a varierty of apps and games that are, otherwise, missing from the Windows Phone OS, which, in turn, provides Micromax with a powerful edge in the competition.

    Display and Dimensions
    It seems like the Karbonn-based device, in this respect, has a slight edge over the Nokia Lumia 525 with its 4.7-inch AMOLED HD (1280x720p) Capacitive Touchscreen, the dimensions of which are 135.00 x 59.00 x 7.90 mm.


    The Lumia 525 from Nokia, on the other hand, sports a 4-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixels, and dimensions of 119.9 x 64 x 9.9 mm.

    While the Lumia 525 arrives with a primary 5-megapixel shooter, offering 2592х1936 pixels, although a front-facing camera is still missing in the equation, the Karbonn Titanium S4 offers a massive 13-megapixel flash camera with a separate 2-megapixel camera present in the front of the device. And that's enough to fairly state that the Karbonn device again takes the upper hand against its Nokia counterpart, in this respect as well.

    Processing Power
    As far as in-device processors are concerned, the Lumia 525 offers a dual core Qualcomm MSM8227 processor that clocks at 1 GHz, which is decently fast enough to get the job done. The Karbonn Titanium S4, on the other hand, offers a 1.2 GHz Quad Core Processor which means that there will speed and fluency and then some for users, and effectively making its presence felt in the comparison in this respect as well.

    Storage and RAM
    Offering 1GB of RAM, the Karbonn Titanium S4 offers an internal storage of 4GB with the option to further expand the device's storage capabilities via an external card slot that can be expanded up to 32 GB.

    The Lumia 525, on the other hand, takes the cake here by offering an internal storage space of 8GB that's supported via 1GB of RAM, with the storage capabilities also supporting expanding the storage via an external microSD card up to 64 GB.

    The Nokia Lumia 525 is currently available for Rs. 9,679 while the Karbonn Titanium S4 is retailed for Rs. 13,990.

    While the only few good things about the Lumia 525 involve its internal and external storage capabilities, apart from a subsidized price, the Titanium S4, for a few extra cash, looks to offer the new Android OS apart from a powerful shooter, processor and more. So if money is not a constraint here (about 4k more), the Titanium S4 could be viewed as a potential winner.
