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. I tested personally with 4GB USD data card. It was able to read and play my video from the external USB drive.nSoftware Updaten********************n1. As per the company they will be releasing latest software for operating system. 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. (As of now no updates given) Updates received to fix bugs.nnConclusionn*************n1. Overall the phone is VFM(Value for money).n2. Will not let you down in look. Better than Samsung Grand. Light weight and crispy and vibrant.nHARDWARE TEST RESULTnSoftware : Quadrant StandardnBenchMark :nWhere Lava IRIS 504 Q stands in crowd :-n1. HTC ONE Xn2. ASUS TRANSFORMER PRIME TF201n3.

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 !!!
If you compare it with its competitors then you will find it to be very affordable and value for money. I have bought it from another website with same price but got additional 5% on it. So it costed for me @12.8k.nnIn the box you get lots of stuffn1. Phone itself (black color . back panel looks a bit grayish)n2. Battery (2000mah)n3. Headphone (white color in-ear)n4. Charger (black color)n6. USB cable (black color)n7. OTG (On the go cable) (black color)n8. Flip Cover (white color)nnThis phone is compared to the likes of Micromax Canvas HD , Xolo Q1000 , Karbonn Titanuim S5 , Zen Ultrafone 701 HD .nnIts flipcover is great.. if you open it the phone gets open automatically and if you close then it will close automaticallynAlso it has android 4.2 out of the boxnOTG cable works fine.. works with my 32gb pendrive.. dont know about external hdds.. haven't tried with it..nCamera is even though BSI sensor the picture quality is ok.. But the competitors offers similar and sometimes not better than this phone.. if you focus it properly and do some edits then you can get a good picture quality.. Front camera is average and limited to skype , video calling and all not so great about it..nnGaming is great like the competitors because of same processor and gpu..nQuadrant Score - 4027nAntutu - 13108nNenaMark - 43.2nnThe display is just to awesome thanks to OGS Technology..It has a 720p display with 294ppi and color reproduction and viewing angles are great..Also the phone is very slim than other phones in this range only 8.4mm which makes it comfortable to hold and less bulkier to hold too..nnAlso one more usp of this phone is Gesture controls which works perfect if you get used to it.. In the beginning i found it gimmicky but after daily regular use I found it to be very easy and quick to use. You can use it for taking pictures moving around to one to another songs videos pictures fmradio.nnBattery life is OK.. same as it competitors.. It will last only a day on max .. as per my usage.. I charged 100% @8.30am and till 6.30pm i kept my 2g net on all time .. made some calls and also received few ( 45 min in total) and played games (temple run , asphalt 7 , subway surfers ) for 1 hr in total (including all) and browsed internet for 30min used whatsapp and fb for 30min each. So in that 10 hours i was using my phone for somewhere around 3 hours and for all 10 hours my 2g net was on continuously.. And when i checked my battery at that time it was still 32% available.. so it will easily last for a day..nnSo go for it.. You wont be disappointed.
I bought this phone for my dad and it got delivered to me in two days, so I'm happy with the Flipkart service as usual.nnUnboxing this device gave me the usual stuff along with a nice Screen Protector, an OTG Cable and also an Intelligent Flip Cover.nnFeatures are those typical features that you'd see in every other Indian Smartphone produced these days.nnHowever, I would say that the display of this device is one of the better displays I've seen in a while. And I'm not even comparing this phone with the likes of Micromax Canvas HD. Because frankly, that display was just overrated by many idiots who hadn't seen an HD display given away for that price. This, in fact, is one of the best displays I've seen seen on a device for this price bracket. The color is just perfect, not ridiculously vibrant, nor too dull. It's just perfect. The brightness levels are also fantastic. *****nnNow, coming to the Camera. Has anybody really appreciated the camera quality of any such devices ? I mean, Micromax Canvas HD was loaded with great features that looked incredible, just on paper. I'm not saying the camera is great, but this sensor is actually pretty decent GIVEN what the price of this phone is. The camera could beat the HELL out of any other Indian smartphone at this price range at any given day. I think the camera is fairly decent and gives you good pictures outdoors and OK pictures indoors. And the front camera also works like a charm instead of being there just for the sake of it. ****nnBattery Life is another point that I'd like to put some light on. Canvas HD and even other phones like Karbonn Titanium S5 and Xolo A1000 face some spectacular failure when it comes to battery life. My dad is an average user. He makes almost 50 calls a day, lasting 2-3 minutes each, for his unexplained business purposes. During that time, he's usually connected to 3G for WhatsApp which includes forwarded video playback throughout the day, a few games like Scramble and 101 Crane Missions, casual photography and very little to none music playback. Also, the brightness level is always kept to FULL and never low nor set to Auto Brightness ever. That being said, the battery EASILY lasts him one whole day and at night, before sleeping, the battery percentage suggests that it has 27% juice left in it still. I think that's fairly good and I'd be OK with that powerful battery life. ****½nnPerformance is just top notch GIVEN that the processor is clocked at 1.2 GHz and also because QUAD CORES are supposed to give faster and better performance, apparently. And it does too. The 1 GB RAM is also perfect for multitasking. ****½nnBuild Quality is also something to be happy about. The flip cover is also of good quality but I'd wish they gave a color option. Buying a black phone and then using a white cover is somewhat odd but I guess that's OK. The OGS Technology can easily be SEEN on the phone from the outside. Power Button should've been on the top though. Also apparently, this phone has striking resemblance to the HTC Butterfly. Look for Micromax to come up with something awfully gimmicky that looks like the HTC One. ****nnTalking about awful gimmicks, the Gesture Motion Control is nothing an but awful gimmick. It works but not always and we end up landing elsewhere in the gallery. This can also be used for capturing photos which is ridiculously annoying. THANKFULLY, you can turn this off and continue living a peaceful life. ½*nnThere is absolutely NOTHING spectacular about the speakerphone either. But it is WAY louder than other phones that are doing rather better business than this one. **½nnOverall, the basic needs of a human being are fulfilled to the fullest at a very reasonable and affordable price so that's a thumbs up from me. Also, Lava has promised future OTA Updates which is fantastic because this phone already runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and it'd be great if Lava squeezes out a few future updates. This is a VERY good phone and you cannot compare it with Micromax Canvas HD because it's way out of that phone's league and has gone into its own universe of awesomeness. ****½
