Lava Iris 402+ Review

By -

Budget smartphones actually don’t get any better. One reason for this phone being so affordable is the technology revolution. Lava Iris 402+ offers you a very appealing specification at a very affordable price. This is a phone I would have bought with the money I did not have when I was in high school. Lava Iris 402+ is worth having a look if you are looking for something cheap yet amazing.

Design

As this phone falls under the lowest price margins of budget smartphone category, not much can be expected from the Lava Iris 402+. This phone is made out of the lowest quality of plastic and has a rough texturized back panel which I certainly do not like. Lava Iris 402+’s design is very basic. The phone is pretty light and the dimensions are standard, you will have no problems at all carrying this phone around. What you can’t do with this phone is show off. The built quality is just isn’t there.

Display

This phone surely has a compelling display for it’s price. You get the Lava Iris 402+ with a 4.0 inch display. I think this display size is probably is ideal in everyway. The resolution is really good too, it packs the pixels for this display size really close. Lava Iris 402+ has a resolution of 480×800 pixels. The basic look of the display is pretty nice. It is not so heavily pixilated as well. But the major drawback is the colour tone. It is not so rich and you can see the shortcoming of the gaming graphics compared to any standard display by other smartphone makers.

Camera

I will talk again and again about the price because for such a small price, you really can’t expect much. So, given the price, the camera is pretty average. Lava Iris 402+ has a 3MP primary camera on board. The user interface is nothing too good, it is a simple interface and let’s you do the most basic things. The images come average, the lack the colour vibrancy and saturation. The VGA front camera is not a good one at all.

Software

There are many reasons to be happy about when you buy this phone and one reason is because Lava Iris 402+ comes with Android v4.2 Jelly Bean. The phone UI is like what you find on most of the other Android phones. You get all the apps necessary to your being on the Google Play store. The UI will give you no major problems and the phone holds out really well with all your commands.

Performance

The most astonishing deal comes here. Lava Iris 402+ gives you a 1.2GHz Dual Core processor along with 512MB RAM. They make the phone fluent to manageable work. They can do multitasking effectively and you should have no major problem with moderate app usage. Lava Iris 402+ has 2.25 GB of internal memory which is expandable to upto 32GB. You get WiFI and Bluetooth support like most other phones.

Lava Iris 402+ comes for Rs. 57800

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.
