Karbonn A21 v/s Micromax A110 v/s Spice Mi-500: Showdown review
Chipset: The Karbonn A21 is said to pack a 1.2 GHz dual core processor which will most likely be a Snapdragon S3 processor (with Adreno 220 GPU). In comparison, the Micromax A110 packs a 1 GHz dual core, and the Spice Mi-500 packs a 1 GHz dual core (dual sim capable) chipset, most likely to be the newly launched Mediatek MT6577 chipset. In that case, the 1.2 GHz packing Snapdragon S3 (ARM Cortex A9) based Karbonn A21 wins hands down in terms of raw CPU processing power as well as GPU speed. The Karbonn A21 wins.
Display: Display is a mixed bag. The Karbonn A21 is alleged to pack a 4.5″ qHD display (according to latest sources) which is a handsome 960×540 resolution. Compared to that, both Micromax A110 and the Spice Mi-500 (as per information available so far) pack 5″ WVGA (800×480) displays. Here, the Karbonn A21 might pack a slightly smaller display (if you consider 4.5″ to be small that is), but the higher resolution on a smaller spread gives it a really high pixel density, easily beating the Micromax A110 and Spice Mi-500 in terms of sharpness, clarity and also reading and browsing activities. The Karbonn A21 wins.
Battery: In the battery department, the Spice Mi-500′s gigantic 2400 mAh battery towers over competition. To compare with, the Micromax A110 has a 2000 mAh battery while the Karbonn A21 has a 1800 mAh battery. Without doubt, The Spice Mi-500 wins
Design: Design wise, we love both the Micromax A110 as well as the Karbonn A21. The Spice Mi-500 looks similar to the Karbonn A21, but it lacks that class. The Karbonn A21 has 4 capacitive buttons below the display, while the Micromax A110 has 3. Design wise, both Karbonn A21 & Micromax A110 tie
