Phone Review and Feedback
12 Apr 2014 By tara On

I recently got the Lava Iris 550q and I am quite impressed with this phone. The company claims that this phone is ‘One giant that’s easy to handle’, and boy does that stand true. With a screen size of 5.5 inches, this phone truly dwarfs most of the phones in the market. But all credit to Lava, for designing the phone to be sleek, stylish and light (weighing just 177gms). The USP of the phone is the screen resolution of 720x1280 (HD), which provides amazing clarity and a fine blend of colors. On the technical front, the Lava Iris 550q comes with 1.2 GHz quadcore processor which makes the phone quite fast in operation. The 1 GB RAM provides able backing to the processor, with the set ensuring the phone doesn’t hang when the user is using heavy duty apps. The internal memory of Lava Iris 550q is 4 GB, with external memory expandable up to 32 GB. I personally use a 16 GB memory card which I’ve filled almost to the brim with music, images and files from work. I am glad to say that even after being almost full in memory space, the phone hasn’t slowed down a bit, thanks to its processor. The camera quality is another feature I am particular about as I don’t really like carrying a separate camera when on tour. This phone comes with a primary camera of 8 mp, which enables me to capture quality pictures with every click. The dim light imagery of the phone is also something to note. The secondary camera too is a quality 2 mp, comes in handy whenever required. The operating system in the Lava Iris 550q is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean which is a great addition to a great phone. But for a few minor battery issues, this phone is a winner in every aspect.
