I bought this product two days back after comparing so many mobiles. This mobile is surely a latest and innovated product from an India based company. nPros:n1. Android jelly bean- works out everything you want from a smart phonen2. Processor- dual core- multitasking is easy. extremely fast processor with comparison to others like MMx ninja, Karbonn etc.n3.Camera-Auto Focus Rear Camera with Face Detection, Panorama, HDR. Picture quality is very good though it is only 5 mp. excellent HD recordingn4.qHD display- display is very clear and picture quality is as good as Samsung grandn5.Dual Sim dual standbyn6.Graphics quality is very high. 4.5” Capacitive Multi Touch screen with resolution of 540x960n7.Setting up emails and other accounts is very simple and fast.n8. 3G support is excellent and GPS works very smoothn9.The looks are dynamic and its just 9.92 mm which makes it very slim. overall very sturdy feel in hand.n10.Battery backup is excellent, better than MMX canvas, Samsung duos etc.n11. Pre-installed browser Google chrome runs very fast and smooth.n12.All kind of sensors are designed by LAVA peoplen13.Light weight just 120 gm, while others in this range are weighing around 145-160 gm.n14.Wi-Fi, MicroUSB, Bluetooth v4.1.1, GPRS , EDGEnncons: just twon1. Sound is a bit less but manageable with high kbps ringtones download available from Google play store.n2. 4GB ROM, 512 MB RAM, Expandable memory upto 32 GB. Internal memory is less which some users may think as not sufficient. though i do find it sufficient for all installations necessary.nnfinally, if you want a budget phone with excellent features, go for it. It doesn't matter which brand is the phone, because now a days many companies assemble the parts in Indian factories, after importing from outside India.
After using it for 3 weeks here is my full review about the pphone as I waited find out a fault to address through this column for 3 weeks.. hope I may never find out any...:) After doing 2 months of research on android phones i was zeroing in on Xolo B700 but at last chose this one as its Jellybeaner. And believe me It didnt disapppoint a bit. Here is my review for any aspiring buyers, Display/ looks- 4.5/5 its cool with qHD display and with full screen brightness, watching videos is just great.No AMOLED display or IPS, but still a treat to watch and touch response is good enough. looks are not stunning, but fair enough. signal reception- 4/5 it just performs good enough as for my Nokia C7. Voice calling clarity and sound level- May be in call sound is a bit less compared to nokia but good enough to make you not suffer. Loud speaker is fairly good. Music play- Didnt try too many, but fusion in built plays good though it doesnt work like a music phone, which was never my choice.It has a better looking headphone with below average performance. Games : iam not a baby... but foer those who still are, I dont think itt wiil be a let down.The processor seems good enough. videos : It can easily play back 720p and 1080p is also suppotted if u have a vLC player or updated codec from MX player.Watching HD videos in this is just pleasure. Apps and multi tasking- till now no problem, i have installed most of the popular apps in playstore,and never found a problem except skype.Thats the only time I found the mobile hanging and out of response.It cud be a skype version problem too!!! Multitasking is very cool no lags if you are having up to 10 open apps in the back ground. only when I reach 15-16 back groung apps, it slightly lags, but i have faced more with my nokia c7:) Internet and data network: really good I must say as browsing is fast enough with crome and even built in browser, though the downloading speeds are a bit less than what I used to get with my c7 since this one has only 7.2 mbps HSDPA. But it will never bother you. I have used airtel, docomo and BSNL 3g networks andd it can work very well. text rendering and viewing is very good. Wifi - sometimes I found the wifi is a bit slow, but there can be various reasons. User interface: Since this is my 1st android, it took me 2 days to get familiar with it. But very good compared to GB or ICS phones I got my hands on, as JB offers a smoother usage experience thanks to project butter. Camera: Just dont expect much frm an 8k phone. Back cam is average but the frnt cam surprisingly is very clear and smoother for a 0.3 mp cam. Sometimes I feel they misplaced the cams the other way round in my mobile nd I am happy for it. Now the battery--- It lets you down if you are a gamer or a heavy browser. Just dont expect to last more than 3 hrs. but the amazing thing is that unlike many android phones, it doesnt consume much battery while on cell standby. I am using a battery saver app now, but even before that I noticed that if u leave ur phone overnight with 95% battery, with both sim cards active, in the morning I see only 5-7% drop in the level. It can easily last up to 18-20 hrs if u are rarely using data and high clarity video. But over all they should have provided a 2000mah battery atleast or such a phone. Over all I would give 4.5. I hope trusting a low voice brand wont hurt me as I dont expect a lot of support or service from LAVA.

I wanted to buy lava iris 455 as the features of the phone are awesome, and also the price of the phone is pocket friendly. I ordered it through a web portal and the delivery is fast. I have been using it for almost a week now and I would like to share the pros and cons of this phone. First the cons: Cons: • The battery back-up of the phone is not that good, refilling takes a lot of time. • The loudspeaker of the phone is not that good, voice cracks a bit. • The earphones are not that good so consider buying new ones. The earphones that they have are without speakers. Pros: • The camera is good it is 5MP with cool features such as Auto-focus, panorama shot. The pictures come out to be good. • The OS of this phone is the latest android Jelly Bean 4.1 which ensures the smooth running of the phone. • The internet is fast • The screen of the phone is 4.5 inches very ideal for me. • Memory storage is decent it is 512MB RAM and the external memory can be extended up to 32 GB • The body of the phone is stylish and sleek and also I got a back-cover and a scratch-guard free.
