Overall: So after the android boom even I wanted to get hold of an android phone. With the limited budget I had, I only had a few bankable options. They were, Tipo, Micromax A 110, Lava Iris 501. Micromax has stopped production of A110 is Tipo is too small for my liking. So I took a chance and went ahead with Lava Iris 501. I bought this phone from Flipkart and it is a delight. The display is grand. nYes, the resolution might be a bit low for your liking, but I found it pretty decent. nThe 5.0 megapixel camera clicks good photos in sunlight. But the photos taken indoors might disappoint you at times though it offers decent performance for its price range.nThe dual core processor along with 512 mb ram manages to keep the phone working without any lags. Temple Run 2, Lane Splitter, Angry Birds, Asphalt 6 are the games I tried running (yes, Im not a very hardcore gamer) and they worked with no problems whatsoever.nThere has been an allegation that the ringtones cant be changed to anything other than the factory defaults. This is wrong. What you have to do is, open the mp3 file of your liking in the MP3 player and then touch the options touch button and simply select 'set as ringtone'.nThe touch response is just as good as you find on any.nThe screen is bright enough to ensure that it works good in bright daylight too.nThe preinstalled apps that come with the phone are good. Asphalt 6 which is otherwise a paid game. There is also an additional MP3 player named Fusion which has an attractive interface and is very handy. nThe hard back cover it comes with is a blessing.nThe phone's battery is quite good for a smartphone. It could last a day or more with moderate usage.nThe speakers are good.nThe capacitive keys (option, home, back) go out of light when not in use and this helps save a lot of batttery and makes the device look good.nAn led indicator is lacking, though.nThe earphones are fairly good.nThe phone takes longer than other phones to charge. But its not very frustrating either.nAll in all, its a classy looking phone with GREAT value for money. If you are still confused and drawn between options, forget about the others and go for IRIS 501.nPlus, the Flipkart delivery is top notch. So, no waiting either! Im sorry if I have left out any significant piece of information. Have a great day. :)
