Checking out the Lava Iris Pro

Mid level low budget phones based on the Android platform have often had to contend with a poor reputation for some years. The common charges leveled against these phones include slow performance levels, flimsy look and feel and the unknown nature of the mobile phone manufacturers in question. However, budget smartphones are now changing the rules in global markets with the inclusion of top notch features and premium components. Build quality is also considerably improved on many of these phones along with an enhanced reputation of budget smartphone manufacturers in global and Indian markets. This has turned the tide as far as capturing customer interest is concerned. Customers are gravitating more and more towards these budget smartphones which give them more bang for their buck.

Lava is one of the foremost companies in the budget smartphone segment and the latest offering from the company, namely the Iris Pro, will go a long way towards transforming commonly held perceptions relating to smartphones priced lower than premium brands in the market. The phone looks and feels good and there are a few innovative design tweaks. At an overall level, the Iris Pro has been inspired by the iPhone in terms of general styling. The High Definition 720p display is definitely one of the major USP’s of this smartphone. Alongside, the build quality is good and the smartphone exudes an aura usually associated with other premium and high end smartphones from top manufacturers. This smartphone is symbolic of the new legion of budget Android smartphones that are trying to woo customers from higher segments as well with features and attractive designs.

Appearance and design of the Lava Iris Pro

The Lava Iris Pro is inspired to a large extent from the iPhone design template. This is even more apparent owing to the band running along the sides along with the ample curves on this device which harks back to the iPhone 4S and 4 models. The size is more in the territory of the iPhone 5S and 5. The Iris Pro innovates with regard to proportions and material usage however including the smooth and textured plastic rear panel and the considerably lighter and thinner dimensions which take into account the incorporation of the much bigger display screen.

The front façade comes entirely in black but the front camera, speakers and the capacitive buttons can all be viewed with ease. The gunmetal metallic rim around the edges gives a rugged and appealing view overall. The volume buttons and power lock are present on the right edge of the device with the headset jack on the top and the microUSB port placed at the bottom of the smartphone. Design templates are tasteful and elegant especially with regard to the speaker grille camera lens and the double LED flash along with subtly incorporated Lava company logo at the rear. The battery cannot be removed and there are slots for both microSIM cards and regular ones. According to the company, the Iris Pro is the thinnest and lightest smartphone in its market segment. Indeed, it is easy to use and hold the seemingly huge smartphone without being hindered by all the bulk.

Features and specifications of the Lava Iris Pro

The Lava Iris Pro possesses a decent mixture of features including a Mediatek MT6589 quad core 1.2 GHz processor. This also integrates a PowerVR Series 5XT GPU in addition to support for Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, FM radio and Miracast. 1 GB of RAM is provided but internal storage is shockingly scaled down to only 4 GB out of which users can avail of only 2.43 GB which is a big deterrent on a phone with a powerful CPU. MicroSD support is only available till 32GB which is another disappointment, going by the smartphone being branded as a premium smartphone in its category.

The display screen of 4.7 inches commands special attention with its quality and High Definition attributes. The screen comes from the house of Sharp and there is a special technique of lamination which cuts down on the area between the LCD substrate and the glass. This provides fabulous viewing angles and minimizes discoloration to negligible levels. The display screen lends a definite premium touch to the product. Alongside, Android’s 4.2.1 platform is used for this device in tandem with a Lava Support App for garnering information about service centers across the country. Lava provides special features like phone flipping for silencing class and usage of proximity sensors for automatic call answering. The smartphone also comes with voice and face recognition for phone unlocking which are incredibly accurate and effective.

There is also a camera of 8 megapixels with a double LED flash, taken from Samsung and there is BSI technology used on the device. Image quality is decent enough along with HDR facilities. Processor performance is not up to the mark as expected from a smartphone pitched as a premium segment offering. Alongside, the smartphone is not at all competent with regard to playing high resolution games as well. Battery life is most impressive however along with a new innovation that automatically dims the backlight with regard to power conservation according to particular situations. Video and audio playback quality is decent on this smartphone as well along with good speakers.

In case of the Iris Pro 30, you really do get value for money with your device. Alongside, the overall design, build quality and the eye catching display unit are major USP’s in this regard. Other winning attributes include decent features, image quality, battery life and others. For hardcore smartphone freaks who prefer high definition gaming or watching HD videos frequently, this will not be a preferred pick. Alongside, Lava gives customers a decent smartphone at less than INR 20, 000. It caters to almost all basic needs of buyers at a very attractive price and that is what matters most. One might think of checking out the MotoG which does seem like a better alternative at a far lower price as well. However, the Lava Iris Pro 30 is actually a good phone that should draw favorable responses from customers in India.

Micromax’s Stunning New Launches This Year!

Micromax Logo

Micromax, as we all know, has been one of the foremost smartphone brands in India throughout the last couple of years. 2013 saw the huge domination of Micromax, Karbonn, Lava, Spice and a whole host of other home grown smartphone brands in the Indian market. What worked for these local mobile phone vendors? This can mainly be attributed to two major reasons. Firstly, these manufacturers worked hard on providing a good mixture of features and services which were not far behind premium segment phones in a particular category. Alongside, it always offered these features and services at much lower prices than usual. This proved to be a winning market strategy and propelled home grown brands into the top bracket as far as the sales figures and statistics of 2013 indicate.

Alongside, Micromax is leading the pack among all home grown manufacturers currently and is only second to Samsung in the Indian market. It is way ahead of other premium competitors like Nokia, HTC, Apple and Blackberry in the smartphone segment. Micromax is now relying on providing better services and more cutting edge technology to its customers. The last few launches reflect this changed philosophy of the company. Instead of using lower prices as the main selling proposition, the company is looking at scaling up its design, tech and feature aspects to be major winners. Micromax recently got Hugh Jackman on board as its ambassador in a move that has rocked the Indian smartphone world. The talismanic Hollywood star can make a huge difference in the brand redefinition exercise that Micromax is trying to achieve.

Alongside, the new launches from the company are aimed at wowing customers with premium features and affordable prices which still remains a major USP. However, these smartphones are a little different from what we are used to and should carve major niches in the smartphone market. Micromax recently launched the Canvas Duet II and the Canvas Blaze HD smartphones which support both GSM and CDMA, a revolutionary feature in itself. Going by the official online Micromax store, the Canvas Duet II and the Canvas Blaze HD both come at a competitive price of INR 16, 000 which should be viable enough for the average Indian customer looking for premium features at a good price.

Delivery time is capped between seven to ten days as per the official notification for prospective buyers of these phones on Micromax’s official website. The Canvas Blaze HD is an apt successor to the highly appreciated Canvas Blaze which was launched as an outcome of a Micromax-MTS partnership in December 2013. Alongside, Micromax has not revealed any official information on any similar partnership with MTS working behind the launch of the Canvas Blaze HD in spite of the visibly clear MTS logo present on the rear panel of the all new Micromax Canvas Blaze HD. The Micromax Canvas Duet II earlier came with a sticker price of INR 15, 790 on an e-commerce portal in the earlier part of February. Even in the recent past, both these smartphone models were kept as official listings on the online store of the company without any price tag or sticker.

The Micromax Canvas Blaze HD is quite similar to its Canvas Blaze predecessor. It has support for both CDMA and GSM based networks along with dual SIM capabilities. Alongside, the Micromax Canvas Blaze HD makes use of the Android 4.1 OS along with possessing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 MSM8625Q 1.2 GHz processor. 1 GB of RAM is provided along with internal storage capacity of about 4 GB. This can be scaled up to a decent 32 GB in all through the microSD card slot provided on the device. Alongside, the IPS display of 5 inches comes with pixel resolution of 1280 by 720 which should be good enough for smartphone enthusiasts. Micromax has also provided for a powerful primary camera of 8 megapixels placed at the rear and a front camera of 2 megapixels which should work well for video chatting and other operations. The smartphone also possesses a decent 2000 mAh battery which should provide standby time of approximately 150 hours and talk time up to 5 hours. Other features on this smartphone include 16M colors, support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and accelerometer and proximity sensors.

The all new Canvas Duet II or EG111 as the smartphone is also known is another winner on the company’s hands. This smartphone also makes use of dual SIM and dual network functionalities. Both GSM and CDMA networks are backed up by this smartphone. Alongside, the Jelly Bean 4.1 Android OS is run by this smartphone in addition to possessing a Media Tek MTK 6572M 1.2 GHz dual core processor. 1 GB of RAM is present along with a High Definition display of 5.3 inches with pixel resolution standing at 1280 by 720. The primary rear camera is of 8 megapixels and there is an LED flash provided as well. The front 2 megapixel camera is handy enough for video chatting enthusiasts. Internal storage is capped at 4 GB while the micro SD card slot helps increase this to 32 GB.

This smartphone uses a powerful 2300 mAh battery which provides standby time of 180 hours and talk time of 6 hours. Connectivity features include support for GPS, Bluetooth, GPRS, EVDO REV A, Wi-Fi and EDGE. This smartphone is also available for purchase on the e-commerce site Flipkart.com which is quite popular in India. This is the second Micromax smartphone which provides CDMA network support after the Micromax Canvas Blaze series. Micromax may just have two winning aces up its sleeve with the Canvas Duet II and the Blaze HD, both of which are extremely value for money propositions.

Dual network support and dual SIM functionality are other attractive features along with decent tech specs and good performance. Micromax should be able to draw even more customers with these recently launched smartphones, both of which are slated to make a mark in the Indian mobile phone market!

Sapphire Crystal Displays Come In For Criticism Before The iPhone 6 Launch

Sapphire smartphone screens have been heavily discussed in recent times and there is a lot of criticism revolving around the usage of the same. Alongside, this criticism comes at a time when the all new iPhone 6 is about to be launched. These rumors have further been fuelled by the acquisition of a sapphire product making company by Apple thereby sparking rumors as to the usage of the same in the Apple iPhone 6, giving it mainstream acceptance. Here is the lowdown on the controversy surrounding the reported usage of sapphire screens for the iPhone 6 model to be launched by Apple soon and more information on what using a sapphire screen actually entails.

Apple iPhone 6 Concept

Apple iPhone 6 Concept

Sapphire is one of the foremost gemstones available in the world currently. This is actually a crystallized version of aluminum oxide and has a natural hue in shades of blue due to the presence of titanium and iron. It has been used widely for many years now by companies like Tag Heuer watches and even on military vehicles and their transparent armor. There is a prominent reason behind such usage however. Going by a scratch resistant index, sapphire ranks only behind diamonds as one of the hardest and scratch proof minerals. Using sapphire smartphone screens will ensure greater durability and resistance from cracks, scratches and other damages. This means that these smartphone screens will not easily break even if dropped or damaged.

Sapphire has been used by Apple before, for its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 models and Apple covers the sapphire portions with fingerprint sensors or Touch ID and the camera lenses. Corning Gorilla Glass is one of the foremost market leaders when it comes to smartphone screens. It will no doubt be threatened by the mainstream inclusion of sapphire screens. Gorilla Glass is used by a host of premium smartphones including the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Nokia Lumia 1520, HTC One and the LG G2. Gorilla Glass has found its way into more than 1.5 billion devices, a figure that is mind boggling to say the least. However, according to market reports, sapphire is even more durable and scratches proof than Gorilla Glass which has been seconded by ceramic technology experts. They reckon that sapphire is harder, sharper, tougher and stronger than Gorilla Glass.

However, all this toughness comes at a premium, as sapphire weighs almost 3.98 grams for cubic centimeter which is considerably heavier than Gorilla Glass at 2.54 grams for every cubic centimeter. Light refraction properties are also a little more than Gorilla Glass and this is another factor that merits consideration. There is news that Apple will be looking at using sapphire crystal screens for the iPhone 6 in a comprehensive manner and this has come in for criticism from Corning who has literally condemned the purported move from Apple. According to a Corning executive, Tony Tripeny, sapphire smartphone screens would lead to many problems and disadvantages and he was quick to highlight the same at a conference organized by Morgan Stanley. Alongside, there were many key points that were raised by Tony Tripeny which all revolved around the negative aspects to using sapphire crystal technology. According to Tripeny, the costs of using sapphire crystal technology were about ten times more than that of using Gorilla Glass. Alongside, he also criticized its excessive weight along with labeling it as unfriendly to the environment. Another issue arising from the use of sapphire pertains to its opacity, which translates into more difficult screen viewing and the transmission of lower amounts of light. This may lead to considerably shorter life of the smartphone battery or a dimmed display at all times.

According to Corning, Gorilla Glass can take on more pressure as compared to sapphire smartphone screens, with capacity up to 2.5 times more as per the company claims. This has not been verified by experts at the moment but it does represent a strong doubt faced by potential iPhone 6 buyers at the moment. Apple has already used sapphire as a covering for the camera lens and the Touch ID sensor as mentioned and should ideally be aware of all the issues surrounding the usage of the same. Alongside, the iPhone 6, which is due in the latter half of this year, will put to rest all these doubts and speculations surrounding Apple’s use of sapphire crystal technology.

The basic problem will be that sapphire based smartphone screens will seem considerably darker under standard lighting conditions as compared to other smartphones. Alongside, manufacturing Gorilla Glass is a lot easier due to a standard process that is already in place. This means that it will be a lot more expensive to produce sapphire smartphone screens and prices of Gorilla Glass should be about 1/10th of the prices for manufacturing sapphire screens. Apple iPhone enthusiasts are worried about the prospective high prices for the iPhone 6 owing to the usage of sapphire crystal technology. The basic line of thought seems to indicate that iPhone 6 models will indeed be more expensive than the competition.

However, Apple might just find a tangible solution for quicker absorption of costs or bulk manufacturing to bring them down. This might be possible going by its acquisition deal with GT Advanced, an organization that has worked out a sapphire sheet creation module. This sheet will supposedly be slimmer than even a human hair and can be installed onto a smartphone display. If this method is used for the iPhone 6, costs might come down drastically. The deal worth almost $578 million in advance payments has enabled GT Advanced to come up with almost a hundred furnaces for sapphire screen production. This might even lower costs further, thereby helping Apple with regard to pricing the iPhone 6 competitively in the market. However, screen darkness and other potential problems may not please iPhone 6 buyers who will certainly be annoyed with the same after paying a premium for the cutting edge smartphone.

Will Apple incorporate sapphire screens? Will they be tangible and viable? Do they really have so many problems? All these questions can only be answered with the passage of time!

The LG L90 Dual And L70 Dual Listed For Sale Online!

LG is one company that has always been quite underrated in the Indian smartphone market. The company has never quite managed to get the sales results it has hoped for. This is attributed largely to Samsung’s dominance of the market and also the emergence of local players like Micromax and Karbonn in the market. This has totally eaten into the market share of smartphone companies like LG. Even HTC and Blackberry are reeling as a result of these latent side effects.

LG L90 & L70

LG L90 & L70

LG has however tried to stem the rot with the launch of two exciting new phones. These two smartphones have been put up for sale online and this has created ripples in the Indian and global smartphone industry. LG is anticipating a good, positive stream of results with these two cutting edge devices. The latest smartphones, namely the LG L90 Dual and the L70 Dual have been made available to Indian customers through an e-commerce portal. The smartphones have been listed at price tags of INR 17, 499 and INR 14, 500 respectively. However, both these smartphones have just been launched by the company.

According to company reports, the drop dead gorgeous L90 smartphone has already started rolling out for commercial production. Alongside, this is the largest smartphone in the entire L Series III line-up. This smartphone will initially be made available for purchase only in the Commonwealth of Independent States or the CIS region and will then be made available in other global and local markets. However, the LG L90 Dual has also been showcased on the official website of the company in India. Yet, pricing details have not been disclosed on the official LG site which has heightened the mystery for customers. The L70 Dual has not yet been displayed on the official page of the company as of yet.

Snapdeal, the popular online retailer has listed both these smartphones on its portal and they are tagged as available, which comes as a bit of a surprise. Going by Snapdeal’s wide array of Indian customers and its staggering growth in recent times, LG should expect good sales in the coming months as internet savvy customers log on to get a taste of these highly anticipated smartphone models. The Mobile World Congress saw the unveiling of these two third generation smartphones in addition to the L40 which should also be a good bet for LG in global markets.

Both the L90 Dual and L90 Dual use the same 4.4 Android Kit Kat platform right out of the box and this is something that should be a huge plus point as far as discerning customers are concerned. Going by the fact that LG has tagged these two smartphones as budget buys, these should add some much needed firepower to the company’s lineup for India and help it compete against cheaper Indian mobile phone companies.

Coming to the LG L70 Dual, this smartphone possesses decent features and comes with a solid LCD IPS display unit of 800 by 400 pixels resolution. Alongside, the display is of 4.5 inches and this should be another winning point for LG in India where customers are most concerned about screen size over 4 inches at least. This smartphone also possesses RAM of 1 GB in addition to a Snapdragon 1.2 GHz dual core processor which should lend ample horsepower to it. The LG L70 Dual also features dual GSM SIM functionality which should be another top draw in India. The smartphone also contains a camera of 8 megapixels in addition to a secondary camera of 0.3 megapixels. The smartphone also has internal memory of 4 GB which should be decent enough and this can also be scaled up to a whopping 32 GB. The smartphone will also be powered by a top notch battery of 2100 mAh. The dimensions and measurements of the LG L70 Dual stand at 66.8 x 127.2 x 9.5mm.

Coming to the L90 Dual from LG, the smartphone possesses capabilities for dual SIM’s which again, should be a definite plus point for customers in India. Alongside, the smartphone will have an IPS display of 4.7 inches. Resolution stands at 960 by 540 pixels and the smartphone makes use of a Snapdragon 400 quad core 1.2 GHz processor. The smartphone also possesses RAM of 1 GB. Inbuilt storage is a staggering 8 GB and this can be scaled up to 32 GB of RAM which is decent enough for storing all your applications and other data. The primary camera of 8 megapixels is good enough for shutterbugs while the secondary 1.3 megapixel camera should work well for video calling and related activities. The smartphone also makes use of a 2540 mAh battery which is removable. The LG L90 dimensions stand at 66 x 131.6 x 9.7 mm.

The LG smartphones will also possess another cutting edge technical feature, namely the all new customizable phone unlocking method called the LG Knock Code. This user interface will be another huge hit in the Indian market. As a result, customers will be able to unlock their smartphones by only touching the lock screen of the smartphone. This can be done in any number of ways. There is also a dedicated switch key for SIM cards which is another user friendly option. The LG L70 Dual also has support for Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G and Bluetooth 4.0. All these networking options are supported by the LG L90 Dual smartphone as well. These smartphones will be available in both white and black colors and should be a classy option for Indian smartphone users.

Both these smartphones have been listed on Snapdeal as mentioned and should sell well in Indian markets owing to a reasonable price point. These smartphones should outdo Micromax and Karbonn along with Samsung’s budget range of smartphones. Budget range smartphones with good features have always done well in India. The LG L90 and L70 Dual smartphones should be no exception in this regard.

The Scintillating Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini Review

Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini

Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini

Things have changed drastically in the Indian smartphone market. Micromax has been ruling the market for quite some time now. All of a sudden, Indian customers are favoring home grown brands like Micromax and Karbonn over global biggies like Nokia, HTC and Blackberry. Micromax currently holds the second position in the Indian market after Samsung. It has managed to hold its own with a mixture of cutting edge features, premium services and top notch products at affordable prices. The company has established its own market dominance in a relatively shorter span of time. The success of the company is a strong indicator of the consumer behavioral trends in the market. Indian customers now prefer features and affordability irrespective of the appeal and presence of the brand which nonetheless Micromax is now building upon.

Micromax products have not always been the best lookers or premium devices as compared to international giants. However, they have carved out their market niche by targeting budget conscious buyers who desire good features and absolute value for money. The company is steadily moving into the mainstream Indian smartphone market with a view towards shedding its China-made label. The mobile phone category under INR 20, 000 is the most lucrative for Micromax and it has been expanding rapidly in this category with a wide range of smartphones. The all new Canvas Turbo Mini is competitively priced at INR 12, 000 which keeps it below the higher end Micromax smartphones like the original Canvas Turbo HD and others.

The Canvas Turbo Mini will take on competitors like the MotoG from Motorola’s stable and all other market offerings priced below the INR 15, 000 bracket. The appearance of the Canvas Mini Turbo is quite similar to its bigger sibling, the Canvas Turbo which was launched in 2013. The Canvas Turbo Mini possesses a 4.65 inch high quality display and resembles its bigger sibling with regard to the shape, styling, form and the grilles around the speakers. The ring enclosing the camera lens also bears resemblance to the same. The front panel of the phone comes in white while the back panel is made of a grayish plastic material that seems metallic. There are two Micromax logos at the back along with strips running from top to bottom.

The left side of the smartphone possesses a tray which contains the Micro-SIM slot while the panel on the upper portion contains the SIM and MicroSD slots which flank the elevated primary camera. The top of the phone has the charging slot and the jack for headsets while the bottom is kept totally free. All in all, the design and build quality are not all that top notch, going by what the MotoG offers but is decent overall.

Features and other specifications of the Canvas Turbo Mini

In a similar vein to almost all major budget phones running on the Android platform, the Canvas Turbo Mini possesses a Mediatek central processing unit along with a quad core processor as well. The MT6582 is complemented by the Mali-400 MP GPU core unit. Alongside, the 1.3 GHz processor is backed by 1 GB of RAM. Internal storage stands at a measly 4 GB while it can be scaled up via microSD storage.

The display unit is the actual USP of this device as the features are not that great. The viewing angles are pretty accurate and sharp. The widest possible angles are granted by this smartphone along with accurate and picturesque reproduction of colors. The 1280 by 720 pixel resolution makes it easy to view and read documents on the phone with a fabulous user interface as well for greater functionality. There is a non removable smartphone battery and the 1800 mAh battery offers decent enough battery life without being power packed like some other smartphones on the market.

The 8 megapixel rear camera is complemented by the front camera of 5 megapixels. The smartphone uses the 4.2.2 Android operating platform with customizations as far as the Andoird interface goes. Alongside, the main menu icons are entirely new along with white backgrounds for additional notification and settings screens. There are two buttons for switch and notifications placed at the bottom which is another plus point of this smartphone. When it comes to gaming, Micromax disappoints, with only three games available which are quite simple and come as trial versions. There is an online store and other basic apps as well. The company is also providing INR 99 worth of content absolutely free from its online store for customers.

However, the registration process involving personal information is a marketing strategy which may not go down well with privacy sensitive customers. The smartphone also comes with Hike, Kingsoft Office, which takes care of all official documents in Excel and Word and also the Opera Mini browser for internet surfing. The camera application provides a wealth of features like the ISO settings, panorama mode and a wide variety of effects. Other features like Remove Object and GIF animation are also provided for the benefit of shutterbugs who have a penchant for editing their photographs. The camera works surprisingly well in low light conditions and even in daylight. Video quality is good as well even without proper stabilization features. The front camera also deserves special mention for its outstanding image quality.

Performance is moderately okay especially during high definition video playback. Alongside, graphics are not that great on the smartphone. This smartphone is best for downloading simple and basic games which do not require graphical prowess. Battery life is not that impressive and the phone may not last a full day without any charge. However, Micromax does provide quite an array of features at an extremely compelling price which should be ideal for Indian customers. Pricing more than anything else, will determine its success in this market segment. The Canvas Turbo Mini should be a good buy if you are looking for a functional yet handy smartphone that gives you full bang for your buck!
