    Guy’s, these little companies like karbonn or micromax or cm or … , are not ours ! then do not be a fake fan !
    the A9+ and A21 both have 386 MB of RAM , the angel view is worse from above ! but cheap and have MSM8x25 over clocked to 1.2 GHz and Adreno 203 GPU ! They use S4 Play series Chip-sets and you won’t find kernel or source codes because these damn companies do against GPL V2 law and do not release kernel and source codes of phone that they launch !
    Karbonn is a re-branded company that use chines or Philippines or even Singapore Phones !
    if you want a cheap phone to play , buy these ! if you look for a good phone you must pay more !
    Karbonn shows fake or not complete specifications in it’s site ! then the best way to find out, is to read real reviews !

    Karbonn A21 might have 1GB RAM as it is way high on price than A9+ althoug they both have same specification only difference is 4.5-inch display on A21……… so it make sense that A21 might have 1GB RAM.

            If internal storage is 4GB and usable is 2.5GB then how come ROM is 580! The equation just doesn’t match. Post screenshot or video review to support your claim instead.

            Hi Shiv,

    is it confirmed that a21 has 1gb ram


    (October 12, 2012 - 8:39 pm)

    confusion over A21, some sites sayin IPS and some not. Snapdeal doesnt mention about dual core processor. even karbonn doesnt mention dual core.
