The whole world knows that the India is a booming market for smartphones with its huge populace and the purchasing power of the middle class. But there is a section in the society which can’t afford the 40k handset. And for those, the companies like Spice, Karbon, Micromax, Lava, and other such makers make middle range smartphones, which function like high end gadgets and costs in four digits. Today I am going to paint a comparison between two such handsets, both are highly efficient and both cost you four digit sums: Spice Mi-425 and Karbonn A9.
Like the custom that we maintain, I would talk the price first; the Spice Mi-425 will cost you INR 9999 and for the A9 from Karbonn you will have to pay around INR 9100. Now that we are familiar with the price of both the handsets, without further ado we should divulge into a head to head comparison.
In the display segment the Spice Mi-425 has a 4 inch TFT LCD display, which has a good pixel resolution of 800x480p. And the handset supports more than 262K colors. The other handset in comparison has a 3.8 inch screen with the same pixel resolution. With similar features and bigger size this round belongs to the Spice Mi-425.
CPU and RAM
There is nothing much to differentiate the two devices in this segment. Both Spice Mi-425 and Karbonn A9 have a 1GHz processor and a 512 MB RAM. Both devices are quick and this round is a draw.
Both the handsets have the same memory expansion capacity of 32GB. And as far as the inbuilt storage capacity is concerned the Spice Mi-425 has a140 MB storage and the Karbonn A9 sports a 512 MB. Without doubt the Karbonn handset emerges victor in this duel.
Like the previous segment, here too the handsets are more similar than different. Both the handsets have a 5MP camera with auto focus on the rear side of the body and both of them sport a front camera for video chat and self portrait. Spice Mi-425 and Karbonn A9 are head to head in the camera section.
All the readers know how essential is the battery spec in performance of a smartphone . And in this vital section of the comparison, the Mi-425 has a Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery on offer whereas the A9 has a Li-Ion 1600 mAh battery. No need to say that the Mi-425 has a obvious advantage over the A9 here.
In the connectivity area the Spice handset has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, 3G connectivity, A9 also sports the similar features in this genera. I would once again call it a tie.
Both the handsets are Android driven devices, both of them run Gingerbread at the present moment. The Mi-425 will, in the coming time get a ICS upgrade and will become slightly more irresistible than the A9, hence the Mi-425 wins by a slight margin.
Both the handsets offer a lot of features like sensors, Multitouch, Dual-SIM, FM radio, and many more. Users taste will give the decision in this column of the comparison.
We have seen that how very similar these two handsets are in almost all the segments. But if I have to choose a handset between either of them I would, because of the bigger battery and screen size, go for the Spice Mi-425. Readers have to keep one thing firmly in their minds that the A9 is not a bad handset, Mi-425 is better.
