LAVA IRIS 504Q+

` 13,990

SPECS: 5-inch dis­play; 10 MP cam­era; An­droid 4.2; 1.3 GHz quad core; 1 GB RAM; 149 grams; 2000 mAh bat­tery

THE LAVA 504Q+ has got a rec­tan­gu­lar de­sign with metal­lic front frame and back cover. The phone packs in a 5-inch dis­play with 720p res­o­lu­tion. The build qual­ity is good and it does feel pre­mium to hold. It has also got air ges­ture con­trols for var­i­ous apps, in­clud­ing mu­sic, FM ra­dio, gallery, cam­era, etc.

The phone comes with a few pre­loaded apps like Sketch, Va­ri­ety Theme, and My Notes. Pow­ered by Me­di­aTek MT6582 pro­ces­sor, the RAM is not enough for a smooth per­for­mance. The phone did slow down while launch­ing apps and switch­ing be­tween them. It sim­ply couldn’t sup­port heavy graphic apps.

The cam­era cap­tures good im­ages dur­ing bright sunny days but they are grainy in low light. It also packs in 8 GB of in­ter­nal stor­age of which only around 5.4 GB is user ac­ces­si­ble. The bat­tery on­board lasts a full day on a sin­gle charge.
