Lava Iris 406Q review in pictures

  1. 1. Lava Iris 406Q Review in pictures
  2. 2. Good design, solid build • Resembles the Apple iPhone to a little extent thanks to its compact form factor • Slightly bulky for its size, but gives a reassuring feeling in the hand • Thickness of 10.3mm is more than the norm • Follows a typical design when it comes to buttons and ports • Comes with a stick-on flip cover to protect the device
  3. 3. Display leaves a tad to be desired • Features a 4-inch display • With a pixel density of 233 pixels per inch, the display is good and there’s no pixelation • But colours look washed out • It’s better to set brightness yourself, instead of relying on automatic brightness
  4. 4. Don’t expect much from the rear shooter… • Features a 5-megapixel snapper at the rear • LED flash also available to assist in low-light conditions • Custom camera app, though the available settings are almost similar to stock Android • Offers the usual options like HDR, panorama, continuous mode, along with the ability to adjust ISO, exposure, and white balance among others • The camera is fine under ample lighting, but night shots are very poor
  5. 5. … and front camera as well • Equipped with a 0.3- megapixel camera at the front • Good enough for video calling, but not for taking selfies Image samples from the main camera:
  6. 6. Android with subtle additions • The Lava Iris 406Q comes loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with a promised update to KitKat • There aren’t much changes from stock Android • Custom launcher also provides an option to change themes • There are a few preloaded apps as well
  7. 7. Delivers strong performance for its price • Unlike most of the budget devices, which are powered by a MediaTek SoC, the Iris 406Q gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz. • Adreno 302 GPU for taking care of graphics • Equipped with 1GB of RAM for multitasking • Works smoothly most of the times, though heavy games tax its performance
  8. 8. Stingy storage makes you wanting for more • Comes with 4GB of built-in memory, which is average these days • More than half of it is taken up by the OS, leaving approximately 1.5GB for user data and apps • You can add a microSD card of up to 32GB for your multimedia needs • Sadly, it doesn’t have USB On-the-Go capabilities
  9. 9. All-day battery life • The smartphone gets power from a 1,700mAh Li-ion battery • With moderate usage, the Iris 406Q can get you through a full day • While playing an HD video on loop at 50 percent brightness and volume, the device delivered a run time of around six hours
  10. 10. BatteryGuru is the guru, comes pre-installed • Comes with BatteryGuru preloaded that helps in increasing the battery efficiency • The app tracks your usage for a couple of days and then automatically changes sync intervals for the apps • Other options include a low- power saving mode, which kicks in when battery level drops below a certain percentage
  11. 11. At a glance • 4-inch, 800 x 480 pixels (233 ppi) • 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor • Adreno 302 GPU • 1GB RAM • 4GB storage plus microSD slot • 5-megapixel main camera with LED flash, VGA secondary camera • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean • 1,700mAh battery • 3G dual-SIM (3G support in the first SIM slot only), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS
  12. 12. - • Average display • Below par camera quality • Poor call reception Pros and cons + • Good build quality • Strong performance • Powerful specs for its price • Promised upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat • Decent battery life
  13. 13. Lava Iris 406Q vs Moto E: the budget smartphone battle  4-inch display (233 ppi)  No screen protection  1.2GHz quad-core processor  5MP main camera with LED flash  VGA camera at the front  Runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean  1,700 mAh battery Lava Iris 406Q Moto E  4.3-inch display (256 ppi)  Gorilla Glass 3 protection  1.2GHz dual-core processor  5MP main camera without flash  No front-facing camera  Runs Android 4.4 KitKat  1,980mAh battery
  14. 14. Price: Rs 6,999 Pricing and verdict “With the Lava Iris 406Q, the Indian vendor proves that low pricing of a device doesn’t necessarily mean a compromise in its specs. Despite a few issues with call reception, the Iris 406Q is an all-round package and a worthy option to consider in the entry-level segment. ”
