My Karbonn A5 with GB with several Tasker scripts running along with some background services like root call blocker, Widgetsoid and a live wallpaper on 512 MB ram and single core 800MHz processor doesn't feel sluggish at all, even when running a game like Temple Run. Its a Rs. 5k phone and doesn't even have an ocable kernel!

All these perceptions are bred by users who install bloatware or unoptimized/beta custom roms imho. Its not ICS vs. GB. Its what you do to it...

Jellybean has Better RAM management than ICS, also developers can come up with ram swaping techniques like zRam/compcache etc.

Re: The Sub-15k Android Phones Market

That thread is a joke. But do ask him to go through it to familiarize himself with the procedure to go into fastboot and recovery mode.
All the roms listed for Karbonn A5 are either fake or have some problem.

I'd advise him to first do a fastboot flash of the custom recovery, make a nandroid backup of the stock rom and then flash my prerooted and customized rom GB-ICSthemed.zip (also posted in that xda thread).

Re: The Sub-15k Android Phones Market

Thread update:
Lava's Xolo X900 was not exactly revolutionary but as it seems now the A800 and A700 look like pretty decent phones.
Both are powered by MediaTek Dual Core processors, but the A800 and A700 has a 4.5inch screen with a 540x960 resolution meaning more PPI.
