NAVIGATIONn__________nCons :n******n1. GPS :No ==> Dedicated Chip to track satellite and pin point the location for user. It is good if you are looking for navigation while driving your car with offline maps.It is preferred for those people who like travelling in car most and like to explore places.n2. Support for GPS : Yes ==> EPO +AGPSnEPO (Extended Prediction Orbit) is one of MTK’s innovative proprietary off-line server based A-GPS technology. It supports up to 30 days satellite orbit prediction, which can be used to greatly enhance user experience by improving GPS Time To First Fix (TTFF). nnWe have to manually download the EPO file which takes around 3 to 4 minutes. Sometimes it may fail. That means you are depended upon the Mediatek Company as your mobile connects to thier NPT server. It requires active data plan or Wi-fi to download from the server.n3. Locking GPS positionnTo Navigate the phone requires to lock your current position and we have to depend on A-GPS or EPO file due to missing GPS. n4. Lava IRIS 504Q is working well after you download EPO file with offline maps (Mapfactor/Navitel navigator/Sygic/NavFree). I personally tested on Nav free.nn5. Online Maps require active data connection (3G or 2G or Wi-fi). Google navigation voice by guidance and Maps are working well with Wi-fi. 2G it will be slow.nConclusion : GPS is working well after you download EPO file.n7. Micromax/XOlo/Karbon phones fails to lock the GPS position due to missing GPS chip. They also have to depend on EPO file before they can start navigation.nDual Simn8. It supports Dual Sim Stand By not Dual Active Sim. If you are surfing or making voice call in one of the SIM the calling party other will get this message ("The customer is not reachable"). n9. CAMERAnNot so good with respect with color capturing. My Sony xperia Arc s took exact color of the dress whereas this camera I can see a change in color to darker side.nPros :n******n1. Slim phone. n2. Good Viewing angle.n3. Visible in sunlight also by increasing brightness. Please uncheck the check box which control brightness as per the condition.n4. It supports Class 10 memory card + UHS 1(Ultra High Speed). I am using SanDisk SDSDQUA-016G-U46A 16 GB. I brought it from Flipkart for Rs 825/-.n5. Camera Handling is good but it will take unnecessary picture because of gesture control enabled. Better to switch off.n6. Voice is crystal clear.n7. Playing Video and songs is enjoyable. n8. Fast booting.n9. Jelly Bean 4.2.1.n10. Skype is fully supported. (I installed skype for play store and started skypecall to my relatives in USA (Ipad UserI) and had crystal clear sound on both side and good video transmission also. I used my Airtel Broadband 2Mbps to make Skypecall.n11. You can move all application to SD Card without any issue except google related application (Google maps/hangout/google navigation...)n12. Wi-Fi no issues good connectivity.n13. Bluetooth no issues with pairing with bluetooth devicesnHighlightn1. Can read your USB Memory Card using OTG cable provided in box.

It will get updated by OTA no need to go to service center and no need to change your mobile to experince latest changes made in android os. nCurrent Version is Jelly Bean 4.2.1 waiting to get update 4.2.2.

EVERYTHING IS JUST GREAT ABOUT THIS DEVICE SCREEN (apart from viewing angles not so great ), CAMERA, SOUND, LOOKS, BATTERY, LIGHT WEIGHT, VERY GOOD FLIP COVER. nnA LOT IS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT THIS DEVICE SO I WILL FOCUS ON CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS.nn1) PEN DRIVES :- >>> THROW ALMOST ANY BRANDED ONE AT IT AND BANG IT WILL CONNECT IT IN SECONDS.nn2) KEYB/MOUSE :- USB AS WELL AS WIRELESS KEYB/MOUSE CONNECT FLAWLESSLY.nn3) USB HARD DRIVE :- SUCCESSFULLY CONNECTED MY 500 GIGS OF SEAGATE HDDnTO CONNECT NTFS FORMAT DRIVE THE DEVICE NEEDS TO BE ROOTED OR FORMAT SHOULD BE FAT32 IF YOUR DEVICE IS NOT ROOTED. FOR NTFS DRIVES INSTALL PARAGON NTFS&HFS APP OR NTFS MOUNTER FROM PLAYSTORE.nYOU CANNOT CONNECT HDD DIRECTLY TO OTG CABLE BCOZ THE PHONE CANNOT SUPPLY ENOUGH TO POWER ON THE HDD. FOR THIS YOU EITHER NEED A EXTERNALLY POWERED USB HUB OR THERE`S A WAY WHICH I USE >>> CONNECT OTG TO PHONE, THEN GET A REGULAR USB HUB ATLEAST 1:2 CONNECT THIS HUB TO OTG, NOW GET A USB TO USB CABLE ( CABLE SHOULD HAVE MALE USB CONNECTORS ON BOTH ENDS ) CONNNECT ONE END TO USB HUB AND THE OTHER TO YOUR LAVA`S PHONE CHARGER SOCKET AND POWER IT ON, NOW CONNECT THE HDD TO ANY EMPTY PORT IN THE USB HUB ONCE YOU SEE THE LED`S ON YOUR HDD LIKE MY SEAGATE DRIVE THE DRIVE IS CONNECTED. JUST OPEN ANY FILE EXPLORER AND BROWSE THROUGH USB OTG FOLDER AND WALLA!!!nnFOR NTFS DRIVES IF USING PARAGAON APP THEN IT SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY MOUNT THE DRIVE IF IT DOESNT THEN OPEN PARAGON APP CLICK ON MOUNT BUTTON THEN IT SHOULD DO...nNOTE:- IF YOU DONT SEE USB OTG FOLDER THEN BROWSE THROUGH INTERNAL OR SD CARD STORAGE AND LOOK FOR FOLDER NAMED PARAGON NTFS FOLDER. AND YOU DIDDIDD IT.nnFOR UNMOUNTING THE HDD GO TO SETTINGS>STORAGE>UNMOUNT USB STORAGE. THATS IT.nn4) PHONE :- YES YES YES LIKE YOU CONNECT ANY PHONE TO PC FOR DATA TRANSFER YOU CAN CONNECT YOUR PHONE TO LAVA IRIS PROVIDED YOUR PHONE SUPPORTS MASS STORAGE MODE. JUST CONNECT YOUR PHONE TO LAVA THROUGH OTG CABLE AND FOLLOW THE SAME PROCEDURE WHEN YOU CONNECT IT TO A PC FOR DATA TRANSFERS FORGET ALL THOSE CRAPPY SLOW BLUETOOTH TRANSFERS. WITH THIS YOU CAN ACHIEVE SPEEDS UPTO 2-3 MB PER SECOND WHICH IS 10X SPEED COMPARED TO BLUETOOTH SPEEDS.nNOTE:- WHEN YOU CONNECT IT WILL EITHER CONNECT TO THE INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL SD CARD STORAGE OF THE OTHER PHONE BUT NOT BOTH.IT IS STILL USEFUL.nnnPRINTER:- phewwwww !!! not tried yet ... MONSTER FROM LAVAnnnIRIS 504Q IS DIFFERENT FROM THE MEDIATEK CROWD !!!
