In the current market scenario, all the budget device makers are jumping into the bandwagon of launching Android 4.4 KitKat based smartphones. The latest one to enter this segment is indigenous vendor Lava that has come out with a smartphone dubbed Lava Magnum X604 priced at Rs 11,999. Lava appears to have partnered with online retailer Snapdeal to release this device that sells the phone for Rs 11,399. Let us take a look at the quick review of this smartphone:

Camera and Internal Storage

The Lava Magnum X604 arrives with an acceptable camera performance with an 8 MP main camera sensor that is teamed up with LED flash and BSI Sensor for better low-light photography and FHD 1080p video shooting capabilities. This camera is paired with a 2 MP front-facing shooter that can make good quality video calls and click selfies. This camera sounds decent enough in this price range and ranks above average on paper.

The smartphone bundled 8 GB of default storage space that can in turn be expanded by another 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card. The inclusion of 8 GB of storage is definitely a good task and not many smartphones in the sub Rs 12,000 price range arrive with such storage options.

Processor and Battery

The Lava smartphone employs a 1.2 GHz quad-core Broadcom processor coupled with Videocore IV graphics engine. The chipset uses a NEON technology that makes it capable of supporting numerous video codecs providing a faster multimedia performance. Also, the processor is pretty power efficient conserving the battery life effectively. A 1 GB of RAM joins the processor in delivering superior multi-tasking capabilities.

The battery on the smartphone is an impressive 2,600 mAh unit that should be capable of pumping in a decent backup to it. Moreover, such a huge battery is not incorporated in any of its stiff rivals.

Display and Features

The Lava Magnum X604 comes with a gigantic 6 inch IPS display packing a HD screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels. This roughly translates to a pixel density of 245 ppi that is average. But, the other offerings in this price range arrive with lower resolution making the Lava phone a sharper and better phone.

As mentioned above, the device is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and it packs connectivity aspects such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and GPS. Moreover, the device arrives in two colors – Brown and White.

Comparison

The Lava Magnum X604 smartphone will be a tough challenger to Spice Stellar Mi-600, Xolo 2000L and Intex Aqua i15.

Price and Conclusion

The Lava Magnum X604 seems to be a decent smartphone with the incorporation of a quad core Broadcom chipset that makes it impressive. While it is a valuable phone for a price tag of Rs 11,399, Lava makes it better by offering a free Flip Cover for added protection. On the whole, it is a good device to consider purchasing with a better battery life, large display and good camera features.

  1. I was already looking out for a phone with a large screen and I think that this ‘phablet’ is just what i wanted. the HD screen and battery life is the biggest draw in my opinion and the camera as well as the freebies are icing on the cake.

  2. I think this would be the perfect gift for my little sister who loves to read ebooks but hates the small screen on her phone. the other features on the phone are also quite interesting and are sure to impress her, especially the camera.

  3. It’s awesome to read e-books and watch movies on this phone as the 6 inch HD screen is the perfect size for all of this. It has a 245 ppi resolution that is pretty great as it offers awesome viewing angles. The 8 GB internal memory is an added benefit and so is the 2800 mAh battery capacity.

  4. The new Lava Magnum X604 is sleek, sturdy and comes in a pocket friendly size. It
    comes with an internal storage of 8 GB, runs on android 4.4, powered by a 1.2
    GHz Quad core processor and 1 GB RAM what more can you ask for? To add to this,
    Lava magnum X604 is comes under a price tag below 12,000. You should not miss
    on this affordable and amazing Lava phone.

  5. I’ve downloaded a few of the
    important Liverpool matches on my phone and watch them on the way to work. The
    6 inch HD screen is good for watching them as the overall quality of the images
    as well as the size of the screen are pretty perfect. Would probably add CABC
    technology to the 2800 mAh battery (like some of Lava’s other phones) to make
    it last a little longer but on the whole, it isn’t so bad. I think adding a 32
    GB expandable memory was a great idea because I get to download as many things
    as possible. I’ve just downloaded Captain America: Winter’s Soldier and I’m
    dying to watch it! The sound system is better on headphones.
