Difference between Nokia Lumia 520 and Karbonn Titanium S5

 

Key Difference: The Nokia Lumia 520 is a 4-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen smartphone that offers 480x800 pixels display, which offers approximately 233 ppi. The phone comes with 8 GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 64 GB. The phone offers 1 GHz on its dual-core snapdragon S4 and only 512 MB RAM, which is slightly disappointing. The Karbonn Titanium S5 sports a 5.0 inch display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It runs on a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad Core Processor and 1 GB of RAM.

 

Nokia is a Finnish cell phone company, well known for its superb battery power and durability of its phones, and is the only phone that has not yet integrated its smartphones with Android. Nokia has been single-handedly leading Microsoft Windows OS 8 in the smartphone market. Most of the smartphones have become a pricy accessory to own, and if people opt for a cheaper phone, they must sacrifice on some features. To make a mark in the low- to mid-range smartphone market, Nokia has announced the Lumia 520, which should be available in April 2013 in India (release dates for the rest of the world is yet unannounced) and is currently up for pre-orders on many websites. It has even reached to the second-spot following Samsung Galaxy Grand on the Indian website, Flipkart. The phone is a variant of its big brothers 820 and 920, minus some ‘flash’ features. The Lumia 520 is a 4-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen smartphone that offers 480x800 pixels display, which offers approximately 233 ppi. This is pretty good display screen for a mid-range smartphone.

 

The Lumia 520 is a bar phone with the straight sharp edges and is available with the standard Windows Tile layout. The phone comes with 8 GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 64 GB. The phone offers 1 GHz on its dual-core snapdragon S4 and only 512 MB RAM, which is slightly disappointing. Another let down is the lack of a secondary camera, which makes it difficult to video conferencing. The phone does offer a 5MP autofocus primary camera, with 4X digital zoom and no flash. However, the company claims to use the same digital lens that is found on the flagship. The camera offers features such as Landscape orientation, Auto and manual exposure, Auto and manual white balance, Cinemagraph lens and Smart Shoot lens. The smart shoot lens allows the user to change individual objects in the photo and replace them with objects from the other photos. For example: incase the user is taking photos of two people; however, he does not like the expression of one person in the photo, they can swap the face for another face from another photo. The phone is customizable with changeable shells. The phone has a monoblock casing with the sleep/wake button, camera button and volume buttons on the right-hand side of the phone. Nokia also offers the Windows Office, plus Nokia Music and Nokia Maps. The phone also offers many different features including 7GB free SkyDrive storage.

 

Karbonn has released its own quad-core phone: the Titanium S5. This is the company’s successor to the Titanium S1. The Karbonn Titanium S5 sports a 5.0 inch display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It runs on a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad Core Processor and 1 GB of RAM. It is a Dual-SIM phone that comes with Android OS v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). It also has an internal memory of 4 GB. The phone has an 8 MP primary camera and a 2 MP secondary camera. The phone comes with a limited amount of basic features and also includes CLID with Photo and Karbonn Apps Plaza. There are no high-end features to the camera, but it does manage to take a decent picture. If a person is looking for a no-nonsense phone with the basic purpose of clicking pictures, making calls, having a video conference, this phone is perfect. The best part, it has a very low price tag of just a little of INR 11,000, making it perfect for the people that do have expensive budgets.
