The primary auto focus camera features an 8 MP BSI sensor and is capable of full HD video recording. The secondary camera at the front is a 2 MP unit for basic video calling.

The battery capacity is 2600 mAh will last for 10 hours of talk time on 2G, which is not as impressive considering the battery rating. Connectivity features include the usual set with 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth etc.

The Lava Iris 550q has been competitively priced and will definitely attract those looking for a large sized phablet at a budget price point. It will mainly compete with phones like Micromax Canvas Xl, Xolo Q2000 and Xolo Q2500.
