Lava iris pro 20 review in pictures

  1. 1. Lava Iris Pro 20 Review in pictures
  2. 2. If looks could kill… • One of the better designed smartphones from an Indian vendor • At 112g, the Lava Iris Pro 20 is the lightest smartphone in its category • It’s quite sleek as well with a thickness of 7.7mm • Has the usual layout of buttons and ports • The blue rear panel is highly flexible, but lends it a distinct look
  3. 3. Rich display even with lower resolution • The smartphone features a 4.7-inch display • Even though it bears a low resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, the display is pretty good • Legible outdoors as well, though you’ll need to increase brightness • Protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass
  4. 4. Rear shooter is good enough for casual purposes only… • At the back, the Iris Pro 20 has an 8-megapixel camera • It’s supplemented by a dual LED flash for shooting in low- light conditions • The camera app is stock Android • It offers options like smile detection, best shot selection, HDR, panorama, multi-angle view, etcetera • The camera captured accurate colours, though image quality isn’t extremely impressive
  5. 5. … and the secondary camera might not lure selfie-addicts • Just a VGA camera at the front • Good enough for Skyping purposes, but not for taking selfies Here are a few samples from the primary camera:
  6. 6. Nothing much to talk about in terms of software • The operating system on offer is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean • Minimal amount of customisations on top • Graphs for viewing the status of battery, CPU, etc are a valuable addition • It also comes with preinstalled apps like Lava Care and OfficeSuite
  7. 7. Gets you through the usual tasks • The smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s 1.2 GHz MT6589 quad-core SoC • For rendering graphics, it has PowerVR SGX544MP • This combination is mated with a gigabyte of RAM • The smartphone performs fairly well for the usual tasks • There are some lags while playing heavy games like Riptide GP2
  8. 8. Battery that lasts you through the day • Powered by a 2,000mAh non-removable battery • Once charged, it can run for more than a day of moderate usage • In our standard battery test, the smartphone lasted for a period of eight hours while playing a 720p video non-stop • Offers a power saving mode shutting down non- essential features when the battery level is low
  9. 9. Huge disappoint in the storage department • The device offers a paltry 4GB of onboard storage • Out of which only 1.4GB is available for installing apps and 0.9GB for personal data • This means that you can neither install heavy games nor too many regular apps and games • However, the memory can be extended via a microSD card
  10. 10. Bundled goodies for protecting your device • The retail pack includes a screen guard to protect the display • It also comes with a flip cover, which can be adhered to its rear panel • The cover also supports the device in upright position in landscape mode, making it ideal for watching movies
  11. 11. At a glance • 4.7-inch, 960 x 540 pixels (234 ppi) • 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor • PowerVR SGX544 GPU • 1GB RAM • 4GB in-built storage with microSD slot • 8-megapixel main camera with dual LED flash, VGA secondary camera • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean • 2,000mAh battery • 2G / 3G dual-SIM (one is regular SIM and other is micro-SIM), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS
  12. 12. - • Run-of-the-mill specs • Average rear camera • Low internal storage • Priced on the higher side Pros and cons + • Distinct design • Great handling
  13. 13. Sibling rivalry: how is the Iris Pro 20 different from the Iris Pro 30 • The devices are strikingly similar both in terms of their looks and the internals • However, there are some differences which makes the Iris Pro 20 one rung lower than the Iris Pro 30 • The Lava Iris Pro 20 has a qHD (960 x 540 pixels) display as compared to the 720p display offered by the Iris Pro 30 • The Iris Pro 20 gets only a VGA camera at the front VS
  14. 14. Price: Rs 12,799 Pricing and verdict “The Lava Iris Pro 20 takes the philosophy of the ‘Pro’ series to deliver a stylish smartphone at an economical price tag further. It surely is successful in that regard, although its average hardware configuration and camera sour the deal slightly”
