These days’ phablets are becoming as popular as mobile phones. However they do have one negative aspect and this is that the price tag is generally higher. For instance you can get the Samsung Galaxy S3 for $199, but the Samsung Galaxy Note will cost you $299, both on contract on course.

Over in India people can struggle to pay for a phone. However luckily for them there are some alternatives and these come with a price tag that is lower? The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is not available over in India, however the Samsung Galaxy Grand is available and this comes with a price tag that is cheaper.

So you might be asking why India have their own phablet. There is a lot of stiff competition and many local brands. Karbonn have brought out the Titanium S5 in Bangalore. The device comes with a display of 5 inches and it does happen to give Samsung some competition.

The Titanium S5 has the Snapdragon 1.2GHz quad core processor, while the Samsung Galaxy Grand has the 1.2GHz dual core. This means that the Titanium S5 is the winner.

The Titanium 5S has the qHD display and this is 960 x 540 resolution. The Samsung Galaxy Grand offers a resolution of 480 x 800 on its 5 inches.

Both of the devices have cameras of 8MP on the back and 2MP on the front. They also both have Jelly Bean and they support dual SIM cards. One of the main differences between the two is the cost of the handset. The Samsung Galaxy Grand costs around 9,000 more Rupees than the Karbonn Titanium S5, with its price tag of 11, 990.
