Overall: The Lava Iris 470 is the latest product from Lava and I must say, it looks to be a good, value for money buy. Within this price range one can expect mediocre features at best but the 470 has a few surprises that elevate it beyond the expected. nCostnThe main attraction of this phone is the low price. It is extremely affordable and is the perfect starter smart phone as it has a decent camera and a cool, stylish look, two things people look for when they first buy a smart phone. For a low price you end up getting quite a few useful features.nPhysical AppearancenLike most Lava phones, this one too has a very stylish, cool vibe and is very pocket friendly, weighing in at about 147 g. It is also very slim and smart looking with a black, metallic casing.nDisplaynNice and attractive 4.5 inch 854x480 pixels display is quite large and easy to navigate. It has an IPS display with multi-touch capability, making the user experience smooth. Those new to touch screens will appreciate the size and smoothness of the display.nPlatformnThe 1.3 GHz dual core processor is an attractive feature especially for gamers who want a budget phone. Yes, the 4.2. 2 Jelly Bean OS might seem a tad out-dated to some, but at the end of the day, it is a budget smart phone so you really can’t have everything. For a phone in this range, a smooth and fast functioning user experience (which the Lava Iris 470 does offer) is more than enough. nMemorynWith a RAM of 512 MB and a ROM of 4 MB, the internal storage on this phone is as decent as it gets. Best part is, it has an expandable memory of up to 32 GB so there should be no problems with storing pictures, music and apps. This is a huge bonus on a phone in this range.nBatterynThe battery is one of the most worth it features of this phone. The 1650 mAh battery is supposed to give 17 hours of talk time when fully charged and about 10 hours when heavy apps are being used. This is pretty fabulous for a phone that costs less than a pair of designer shoes.nCameranIt’s quite cool to see a budget phone with a front and back camera, as dual cameras are sometimes not seen even in other, higher end phones. Though the secondary camera is only 0.3 mp, the back one is 5 mp which is pretty good. It also comes with useful features like an LED flash, auto focus (though most phones have that these days) and digital zoom. For the camera alone, this is a decent phone.
