Karbonn has recently launched its latest smartphone, Titanium Mach One which comes with a flash for the secondary camera (front). Earlier in the week, Lenovo launched the A6000, a budget 4G smartphone. As the two devices are similarly priced, with the Karbonn Titanium Mach One costing Rs 6,990 and the Lenovo A6000 costing Rs 6,999, we have compared the two devices on the basis of their specification.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One is an average sized phone, with small bezels. While it is not shockingly thin, it has a sturdy look. The dimensions are 137 x 68 x 8.1 mm, and it weighs 124 grams, making it a fairly light phone. The edges of the device have a brushed aluminium finish, and all told, the Karbonn Titanium Mach One is fairly decent looking phone.
On the other hand, the Lenovo A6000 has a large footprint, due to the bigger screen when compared to the Karbonn Titanium Mach One. The Lenovo A6000 measures 141 x 70 x 8.2 mm and weighs 128 grams. The Lenovo A6000 has fairly thin bezels, making it a more attractive package on the face of it. The back panel feels solid. The Lenovo A6000 too manages to look good without being exceptional.
The Lenovo A6000 comes with a 5 inch display and has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which translates to 294 ppi pixel density that is pretty good. Since it is an IPS display, expect wider viewing angles.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One comes with a 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, resulting in a higher pixel density of 313 ppi. This display too has been made with IPS technology.
Processor and Memory
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One comes with a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It uses Mali-400 MP2 graphics processor. The phone has 8 GB internal memory and it can be expanded by another 32 GB via a micro SD card.
The Lenovo A6000 has the Snapdragon 410, a quad-core processing unit clocked at 1.2 GHz, alongside 1 GB of RAM. The GPU is a Adreno 306. So in short, it meansthat most games and multi-tasking will be taken care of with ease in both of these devices. The Lenovo A6000 too has 8 GB internal memory as well as a 32 GB micro SD card slot.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One runs on Android KitKat (4.4) operating system, but Karbonn has promised to update it to Android Lollipop (5.0). It is likely that the Karbonn Titanium Mach One will have stock Android, which means that there will be less load on the processor, and thus the phone will respond faster.
The Lenovo A6000 runs on Android KitKat and has its customized Vibe 2.0 UI. Lenovo’s own UI adds another skin on the stock Android, meaning it will probably have more features than the stock version.
The 2300 mAh battery on the Lenovo A6000 claims to offer 22 hours of talk time and 264 hours of standby, making it a decent sized battery which will last moderate users for an entire day.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One has an 1800 mAh battery which has a claimed talk time of just 6 hours, or 220 hours of standby time.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One is very much a selfie centric device, as it has a 5 megapixel front camera just for selfies, and it has a flash on the front too! The primary camera has an 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus, face detection, camera effects, HDR, BSI sensor, blink capture for selfies, continuous shots, video recording, etc.
The 8 megapixel primary camera of the Lenovo A6000 is equipped with face detection, auto-focus, HDR, flash, etc. The front has a 2 megapixel fixed focus selfie taker. Clearly, the Karbonn Titanium Mach One is the device with the better front camera.
The Lenovo A6000 not only is a dual-SIM phone, but also has 4G (India’s cheapest 4G phone) connectivity option, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, WiFi, etc.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One is a dual-SIM phone with 3G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.
The Karbonn Titanium Mach One and Lenovo A6000, both make a convincing case for themselves. One is dedicated to great selfies and has a better display. The Lenovo A6000 though has 4G connectivity.
