Win 400 will compete with Karbonn Titanium Wind W4 and Nokia Lumia 530, both of which are Windows Phone operating system based smartphones.
Karbonn Titanium Wind W4, available in the similar price range, is equipped with nearly similar features as that of Win 400. Wind W4 is powered by 1.2GHz quad core processor runs on Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, has 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. It sports 5MP primary camera with LED flash and 0.3MP front facing camera. A noticeable difference can be seen in the front cameras of the two phones. Win 400 comes with a better 1.3 mega pixel though not the best because smartphones with even more mega pixel front cameras are available in the market.
Nokia Lumia 530 on the other hand bears same set of specifications like Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. The only difference being that this smartphone lacks a front camera which is nowadays the first thing that the buyers look for in a smartphone. Seeing the selfie trend that is going on, this phone without front camera seems disappointing. However, if one can manage without front camera then this phone can also be a good deal. So, Win 400 faces competition with these two smartphones and despite so many similarities, it does have an upper hand with a better front facing camera.
