Indian company Lava is one of the largest manufacturer in the region, but we are not too well known. We decided to introduce readers 24Gadget closer to its products, and this took a fresh 4.7-inch model Iris Pro 30, which attracted the attention of IPS-display production Sharp with protective glass Gorilla Glass.
Design smartphone imitates iPhone, which in general is an extremely popular phenomenon among Chinese and Indian campaigns. Thickness is only 7.5 mm. The device is very light – 114 grams. Quality exterior finish and assembly is very worthy. The rear panel is removable. Underneath you can find just two slots for SIM cards. One of them full-length, the second – for the micro-SIM. Next to the camera is not one but a pair of led-chip flash. Power key and volume controls are located on the right side.
Display is the most interesting part of the model. It is made by technology IPS, diagonal is 4.7 inches. This form factor seems to be optimal for many users. Native resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels, which provides high definition. The viewing angles are traditionally lats, the colors are bright and saturated. But in direct sunlight readability rather mediocre. Top display protects durable glass Gorilla Glass from Corning.
Smartphone is based on a quad-core CPU MediaTek MT6589 with a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz. In the presence of 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory (user available only 2.4 GB) card slot SD, module WiFi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS, and 3G. 3G works with two SIM cards.
Iris Pro 30 comes preinstalled with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. OS has undergone minor cosmetic changes. The menu is divided into four tabs: Basic, software, games and widgets. Transition effects and will remind device Nexus. Menu navigation is running smoothly and without brakes, but when scrolling the call log and phone book that happens. Unfortunately, reboot and reset the situation can not be fixed. Supports multiple gestures for quick response and mute.
Test showed 3565 points AnTuTu, Quadrant Pro issued 3967 points. Quite usual for this price category.
Quality of the sound is very good. Most video formats are reproduced without additional software.
Main autofocus camera has a resolution of 8 megapixels. In sunny weather, you can make good shots, but in low light is lost clarity and noise appear. Supports video recording in 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. The front camera is simple, with a 3-megapixel.
Battery is not the most impressive capacity of 2000 mAh, but for such a display size that’s enough. In addition there is a special economic regime CABC, which, according to the manufacturer, is able to save 30%. The figure is an exaggeration, but nevertheless the difference is really noticeable. Opening hours of talk time – 7:00. When using the average intensity of a single charge will last for a couple of days.
– decent autonomy
– quality display
– good sound
– slows phone book
– display lacks brightness
In general, Iris Pro 30 decent machine for $ 250, but it spoils the problem with the phone book. In this form factor and price range would be better to take, for example, XOLO Play T1000.
