Salora International that has been involved in launching smartphones for quite sometime has now come up with a new brand called Arya. The first smartphone to be launched under this lineup is Arya Z2 and it is priced at Rs 6,999. With this pricing it is evident that this smartphone is aimed to capturing a major chunk of the market share that the entry-level offerings are dominating. Here is a quick review of this new smartphone.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Arya Z2 is given an 8 MP (interpolated to 13 MP) primary camera with Sony BSI sensor and LED flash for capturing detailed images even in low lighting conditions. This camera with auto focus supports HD video recording and has other features such as Voice activated Camera Operation and high speed continuous shooting. Also onboard is a 2 MP (interpolated to 5 MP) front-facing selfie camera with support for 3G video calling. These camera aspects are a relatively better than the imaging hardware in the other entry-level offerings.

The internal storage capacity is disappointing as the handset is sticking to paltry 4 GB storage when the other manufacturers in this segment are moving on to use 8 GB of memory capacity onboard. The handset supports expandable storage using a micro SD card and comes bundled with a free 8 GB micro SD card.
Processor and Battery
The Arya Z2 is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core Mediatek 6582A processor that is supplemented by 1 GB of RAM. This chipset should be sufficient enough for the smartphone to render a moderate performance and to fuel the Android KitKat operating system smoothly.
Battery backup is 1,800 mAh, which is average and the company claims that this battery would be capable of providing enough juice for the device to last up to 8 hours of talk time on 3G.
Display and Features
The display unit measures 5 inches and it is an IPS panel that will provide vivid and brilliant colors with good viewing angles. Also, the OGS (One Glass Solution) screen with full lamination minimizes the thickness of the display and offers a great touch experience. Furthermore, this screen boasts of a HD 1280×720 pixel resolution that makes it pretty useful.
The Arya Z2 runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and comes equipped with connectivity features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and USB OTG.

What we Like
- Competitive pricing
- Capable camera aspects
What we Dislike
- Only 4 GB of internal storage capacity
Price and Conclusion
The price of Arya Z2 is quite reasonable at Rs 6,999 for the specifications it boasts. But, in comparison with its competitors in the market, the handset comes only 4 GB of internal storage that is too low. Otherwise, handset comes with a sleek build, good display, great camera and average battery for its pricing making it a value for money offering.
