Iris comes with the Quad Core Processor and the 720 pixel HD screen and also it contains the feature which is somewhat unique; that is the gesture control. On the other side a new Smartphone from Zen, which is also an Indian maker, named as the Zen 701 Ultrafone has also been launched. It contains the features such as the 720 p HD screen and an Quad Core Processor that are similar to the Lava Iris but the major differences among both is the price tag with which it comes.

On the processor front both the devices come with the same processor which is the 1.2GHz Mediatek MT6589 quad core processor. So there is no choice to make among these devices on the processor basis, MT 6589 processor is being an tested and mostly preferable for the Smartphone’s in the budget segment and works really well. On the RAM side both the devices comes with the 1 GB of RAM which is an essential feature of these devices, and also again no choice can be made on the basis of the RAM. Though we can suggest that Iris 504Q a bit faster as compared to the 701 Ultrafone HD.
