Lava has announced another dirt-cheap android phone in its Iris range named as Lava Iris 408e. The domestic manufacturer is offering this budget Android phone for Rs. 3,829 and the specifications are in line with the price range.
The phone supports dual SIM cards and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system which is fast growing obsolete. The chipset incorporates 1 GHz single core processor, 256 MB RAM and 512 MB internal storage. MicroSD support is present up to 32 GB.
The display is 4 inches in size and sports WVGA 800 x 480 resolution which is certainly above average in this price range. Apart from the VGA front camera, a 3 MP shooter is present at the back with LED flash support.
The battery capacity is 1500 mAh and connectivity features include GPRS, Bluetooth and USB. It certainly looks like Lava is strengthening its budget android portfolio rather than focusing much on the mid range devices.
The phone features entry level specifications and will be suited to first time android users. The Android experience however will be vastly limited by the feeble chipset. If you only require basic smartphone functionality, you can also opt for devices like Nokia Asha 500, 501 and 502.
