Lava A9 Mobile Phone - Personal Review

Lava A9 India 3.2MP Camera Review

Lava A9 Dual Sim Phone is a handsome instrument with an assortment of useful features and applications at an affordable price. The phone looks solid with a hard metal body and a smooth keypad which gives an elegant appearance to the phone. Lava A9 comes with a 3.2MP camera that lets you take pictures and shoot videos but the image quality is very poor and doesn't live up to the expectations of a 3.2MP camera. The zooming option is also limited and the camera is a big let down in A9. There is 64MB internal phone memory and the phone will support up to 8GB Micro SD Cards. Listening to music on this phone is not a pleasant experience on the loud speaker but the audio quality is slightly better while hearing it on the ear phone. FM reception is also not satisfactory.

Having said the above glitches in the phone, Lava A9 is otherwise an excellent phone with an impressive profile. The phone comes with both EDGE and GPRS support enabling you to connect with the internet through the pre-installed Opera Mini web browser. Nimbuzz is a refreshingly new application that comes pre-installed with Lava A9 with which you can make calls or chat with your friends over the internet sans the conventional call charges. The phone with a user friendly interface has all the features we expect including bluetooth, java games, Ebook reader, Email support, MP3/MP4 Player, etc. Apart from the usual audio and video recorder the phone also lets you record streaming FM audio in any of the three formats WAV/AWB/AMR. You can also search your contacts with phone number as the search criterion which is handy at some situations. You can also integrate the phone with your PC with the help of Lava A9 PC Suite that can be downloaded from website. Apart from the camera and loud speaker anomalies, LAVA A9 is a good looking phone with powerful features and provides value for money.

Samsung Corby S3653 - Mobile Phone Review

Samsung Corby S3653 Review FeaturesI had a chance to handle this phone after my friend bought it last week. As far as the design is concerned, holding the phone in my palms was a bit awkward considering the width (56.5 mm) of the phone but it is an advantage when it comes to a bigger screen experience. The phone with a plastic body is light weight but still sturdy and looks plain and simple. From the design perspective there is a dedicated keypad lock/unlock button on the right side. Virtual keypad means minimum buttons on the front panel and maximum screen size. The capacitive touchscreen performs well and the interface is intelligently designed for easy navigation of menu items. The menu icons can be docked on the left side for quick access or pulled out from the menu which spans 3 pages that can be easily flicked through. The 2MP camera shoots well in good lighting conditions and the single finger image zoom option is handy while viewing pictures. The phone has a gamut of applications and widgets to integrate with the internet and the social networking world. The sound quality is good and watching videos in a wide screen is comforting as well.
