The Iris 470 comes with a 4.5 Inch FWVGA display (854 x 480) and is powered by 1.3 GHz dual core chipset with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage, with the provision for further extending it by another 32 GB using MicroSD support.

There is only 1.2 GB available for apps, and this will limit its usage. So if you wish on frequently downloading and experimenting with apps, this isn’t the phone for you. For photography, you can rely on the 5 MP rear shooter and VGA front camera.

A 1650 mAh battery will power the handset and is capable of carrying it through 10 hours of 3G talk time according to Lava. Software is dated Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, which doesn’t sound as appealing in lollipop times. Other features include 3G, 2G, WI-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.

The handset is meant for basic usage and if you can shell out a little more, phones like Asus Zenfone 4, Redmi 1S and Android One smartphones should deliver a better Android experience.
