Review : KARBONN A9+ (Cherry Mobile Flare) Mobile - Review, Issues And Workarounds




What do you think about this video?

LifeThoughtsCamera: I have uploaded some pics in my blog. The link is in the description. The camera quality seems good enough, but you can see grains at 100% crop, even in photos taken in good light. Touch to focus works very well, as you can see in the photos. There's also a sweep panorama which is quite usable.

Ayush Jindal: i saw many reviews of this mobile people are in a hurry and dont use a good camera you explained it perfectly also people dont answer the questions asked in the comments but i see you have answered most of them also i wanted to know weather to buy cherry mobile flare or the karbonn a9+(is there any diffrence)coz there is a diffrence of price of Rs.4000

gamer21akshay: should i buy this mobile or micromax smarty 4.0 plz tell me!!! i am confused???!

Vaibhav Bhogaonkar: I have just bought Karbonn A9+...I saw this fone's review on tech guru where they mentioned that the battery life of this fone is very weak...they also said you could buy a china battery for this fone which will work for a longer time than the original....what do you recommend....

Rajib Kalita: front camera VGA...beware

Tristan Tabernilla: if you will ask me about the cherry mobile flare sold here in the philippines, cherry ROM placed in the Karbonn a9+ has a lot of issues, maybe on their developer or technical support. , I'm a Flare/Karbonn a9+ user and I'm already using my own modded ROM to fixed all the issues CM gave to us. , Now I'm perfectly experiencing the true performance of this phone, thru gaming, texting, watching movies, I play 1980p on my Flare and no issues found with my ROM, CM must change their developer

brayane white: is this filipino phone?

LifeThoughtsCamera: Thank you for the appreciation! Not reviewed any other phones yet, as of now.

LifeThoughtsCamera: I tried playing videos from metacafe, and they play quite fine. Haven't tried this before though. It starts playing the video only when you hit the fullscreen button. Tried in built-in browser and Dolphin Browser as well. But when it starts playing, its smooth and only depends on your internet speed.

LifeThoughtsCamera: Yes it is the exact same specs. Only the brand name has been changed.

Harvie Boles: yes it does, even NFS MW

LifeThoughtsCamera: I did not understand what you meant. Everything is stock though.

noodleworzch: @yes indeed, really good phone... and again, nice review! keep making videos, 'will be checking back soon :D

Arvind S: Waited long for a indian women vloger, seems finally social india finds one of that sort .. good work, pls try not break this for any cause..

Venkataraghavan T: which app did you use for offline maps????

nhs2008NC: Hows the flash in DARK/Night conditions??? I want to know if its actually a good flash or just LED Torch. Thank you!

LifeThoughtsCamera: You're welcome! But this code may not work for other devices. Maybe its OS or hardware dependent, it does not work on my defy.

Vaibhav Bhogaonkar: Thanks for the reply...Also initially when I have downloaded Temple Run it was running smooth but now it seems like it is getting hanged in between...also is it recommended to download cache cleaner or battery optimizer...does the device run smoothly after downloading these apps...

kartik manchanda: can u tel me whether to go for this phone or micromax supercanvas a110?

dustan0097: What is mah of battery? And is it 1.2 gh?,

LifeThoughtsCamera: Sometimes I noticed that it does have a bluish tint. In general and not in videos. In videos I haven't noticed much. But the strange thing is I have noticed this bluish tint on my motorola defy as well, which is now running jelly bean. Wondering if it has to do with the android version? Other than the tint, the quality of the screen is good and is bright enough in sunlight and resolution is good. Haven't seen the A11 in person, so cannot comment on that. Hope this helps.

LifeThoughtsCamera: Yes, its a snapdragon 1.2GHZ processor - MSM8625 Surf , battery rating is 1420 Mah

LifeThoughtsCamera: There are different parameters that are more important to certain people. So if you want an 8mp camera and large screen , you can go for a110. You can compare camera quality of A9+ on the link provided in description. If you like the camera quality, then you can consider the A21 as well which is 4.5" screen with exact specs as of A9+, but with bigger battery to support the larger screen. And last but not the least, I think micromax support is better than that of Karbonn.

abhimanyu chauhan: hi... i have a couple problem with this phone it doesn't have a g sensor calibration in settings and when i play any game on it like temple run its character always tilted toward left now what to do with this

LifeThoughtsCamera: thank you!

LifeThoughtsCamera: Karbonn is a joint venture between Jaina and UTL (a telecom company in Bangalore), so they seem to have the skill required to design phones, but its not clear whether they are manufactured here or China. I've read somewhere that their designs are original but they outsource the manufacturing to China to keep costs low. But keep in mind that 'Made in China' does not automatically mean 'low quality product'. The speaker location of he Tianyu K touch and A9+ are different. So it may not be a copy.

Naveen Jain: Thnx for the info.........

Sum One: wow lovely voice there n useful guidance for new buyers.wanting know if you've reviewed any micromax or other phones.really looking forward to it.Thumbs up great work! :)

LifeThoughtsCamera: It is truly value for money. But there is a risk involved as the brand name is not confidence inspiring. You can check out Karbonn A11 also. Its only single core but it has got good features. You may not miss dual core that much.

LifeThoughtsCamera: It is a great phone and Karbonn is coming up with new VFM phones as well. You have not faced the audio port issue too? Thats strange! but good for you!

jHaMeZ M.: Hello, I'm from the Philippines and I owned a Cherry Mobile Flare. Is the Karbonn's Specs the same as the Cherry Mobiles Flare ?

Benedict Daisog: thanks for the review.. it is a best seller in the Philippines (CM Flare) Planning to buy one^^,)

Neermalya Das: How much is the internal storage for this phone..??

LifeThoughtsCamera: Yes it is the stock rom from Karbonn..

abbie arcilla: yes when you use the temple run cheat it pauses and the character stays at one side only

kjjjkkjklkj: love u!! nice review

LifeThoughtsCamera: thank you :)

Billy Chua: its not copy :D its rebranded :P

LifeThoughtsCamera: Theoretically, the videocon is just as good as the A9+ and in some respects even better (like 720p video recording and slightly better battery). Please check out the RAM available on it. Also call their call center before buying the mobile in order to see if they even exist. Karbonn support is not very responsive I feel.

abhimanyu chauhan: hiand also i had a problem with Google play

LifeThoughtsCamera: As per specs Micromax and Karbonn have decent quality camera (check Karbonn sample pics from video description) . Micromax and LG are not bad in after sales service. Karbonn is tied up with FineFone solutions I guess (they're horrible). Probably Micromax is your safest bet.

LifeThoughtsCamera: Hi. Im using the default Karbonn Launcher. If you still want it, let me know how to extract it.

LifeThoughtsCamera: You mean the PC drivers? It is present in the phone itself.. pcdrivers.zip... I use myphoneexplorer on wifi all the time to manage the phone, so I don't know if the drivers are needed or not to connect to PC directly...

Lalith Kumar Kasa: karbonn a9+, karbonn a15,karbonn a11 which was better my budget is 7500.

Arvind S: do u have the drivers for this device? since in official site it is not working.

hk hp: Hi.... could u pls tell me what is the number of screen display colors?? is it 256k or wat???

LifeThoughtsCamera: Flash is decent and does its job well IMO. its comparable to the defy flash. Check the images on my blog (link in description), some of them have been taken with flash. Haven't tried in totally dark conditions.

LifeThoughtsCamera: Yes, no solution yet, just a workaround!

LifeThoughtsCamera: The app im using is called RMAPS. Its available for free on play store. You can download map tiles on your PC and use it for offline navigation. You can also use your data connection to search for POI location on the map I will be making a tutorial on how to use this.

Saransh Sinha: Good Review..! However could you please tell me how many touch inputs can it take at once.....a multitouch test please...? Thanks...:)

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
