The budget Androids just keep pouring in and the latest addition to the group is the A200 from Celkon. A relatively unheard of brand until now, the company has been advertising its latest A200 dual-core handset quite aggressively, so naturally, we decided to see what the fuss is all about. We were pleasantly surprised to find out in our review that the handset isn’t too bad actually and is right up there with the Karbonn A21 or the Micromax A110. What better way to see which provides a better option than a grudge match, but first, a small recap on what makes the A200 a strong contender in the sub-10K price bracket. Celkon A200 – Rs.8,500Unlike the Micromax A110, Celkon has managed to get the aesthetics right as the A200 sports a very HTC Explorer-ish design and thankfully, the branding is highly inconspicuous around the back. So you really can’t tell that it’s not an HTC from afar. The glossy finish is just a complete nightmare, however, and keeping the phone tidy is a real pain in the backside. At 4.3-inches, the handset is extremely manageable in your pocket and the 800 x 480 resolution is enough for decently sharp text and images. The viewing angles and overall screen quality is still pretty average since Celkon hasn’t gone with an IPS display.Click here for full story
