Over all Review of Lava Iris 356

Lava Iris 356 Price

Overall Review

The trend keeps on changing with time and the latest one in the smartphone industry that is applicable at least to the Indian market, is the release of a series of smartphones as compared to releasing just one. The strategy has been followed by a lot of Indian smartphone manufacturing firms including Karbonn, Micromax and Lava. The last of the three firms, Lava, has come up with Lava Iris 356 as a part of the Iris series while they also have another with Lava Xolo. Lava Iris 356 has a 3.5-inch TFT capacitive HVGA display that is quick in responsiveness and works at a resolution of 480 by 320 pixels.

The smartphone comes with a length of 116.9mm, breadth of 62.5mm and a height of 12.6mm. The device weighs 112 grams, which is pretty light for its configuration but unfortunately what also is light, is its battery strength. At 1500mAh, the standard lithium-ion power backup of the gadget delivers a talk time of up to 5 hours, which is not low but less than what have expected. The standby time is up to a mediocre 200 hours. The dual SIM device is supported by a 1.2GHz dual core processor in the hardware department while the software part is well looked after by the presence of Android Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system. Hence, plenty of latest applications and games can be accessed but to store such a heavy amount of data, an adequate amount of memory is also required.

The presence of 4GB as internal memory may suffice for a while but sooner or later, the user would have to boost the external memory up to 32GB using a microSD card slot. To access the best of the Android world, internet facilities of a device also have to be formidable and although the one offered by Lava Iris 356 is not phenomenal, it does get the job done by enabling web surfing and data downloading. GPRS and EDGE along with the WAP browser provide a decent speed for surfing whereas Wi-Fi is another means to access the web and that too wirelessly. Wi-Fi hot spot is probably one technology that would really excite the user enabling him or her to extend the web connections across other devices.

The camera is low on pixel strength with just 1.3 megapixels for a primary camera and VGA strength for the secondary camera. Bluetooth and USB port facilities can be used to exchange pictures clicked by the user along with other kinds of data including songs, games, and videos, wirelessly through the former and via USB cable for latter. Apart from the music and video players that are available for songs and videos, Lava Iris 356 offer some other important applications such as Conference Call, Call Divert, Speed Dialing, Call Recording, Minute Reminder, Black List, White List, Android and Opera, Alarm, Calculator, Call Barring, Call Waiting, Offline Mode, Sound Recorder, Flash Light, Back-up and restore, Lava Zone, Twitter, Facebook, Gtalk, Local, MX Player, YouTube, and Wireless Input Device.

User Interface and UI functionality

Lava Iris 356 is a mid range smartphone with a 3.5-inch HVGA TFT capacitive touch screen display and smooth interface that offers minimum lag. The resolution offered by the display is not on the higher side though with 480 by 320 pixels and even the pixel density is compromised which does not produce the most accurate color saturation or color accuracy.

Multimedia features

Lava Iris 356 has a music player for listening to popular musical tracks that can be strategically placed as part of the customized playlist that could be based on parameters like artists, genre, or popularity. The video player can work on the same principles as it plays videos on the formats of MP4 and 3GP while the music player can play songs in the formats MP3, MIDI, AAC, AAC+, and WAV. Also, the FM radio is a nice way to stay in touch with the latest musical tracks that the entertainment world has to offer provided the latest radio stations are accessible. 

Pictures and Video quality

Lava Iris 356 turns out to be disappointing in the camera department with a lowly 1.3-megapixel primary camera that can snap images at a paltry resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels. The VGA secondary camera is also just VGA but by the standards of front camera is not bad and enables web calls and web chats at a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels. But the surprising part of the device is that it does not deprive the user from some competitive assisting features like LED flash, fixed focus, and digital zoom.

Internet support

Lava Iris 356 comes with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hot spot that looks after the wireless LAN connections whereas the internally provided sources for the same include WAP browser, GPRS, and EDGE. Downloading and uploading speeds are adequate to access online content on a moderate scale.

Internal and External Memory

Lava Iris 356 has 4GB of internal memory out which, only 1.97GB would be available for the user. If and when the user has cravings for more storage space then he or she can stretch the external memory up to 32GB that would contain a huge data collection including songs, games, images and videos.

Applications and Gaming

Lava Iris 356 has games like Ninja Rush and Saavn that are preinstalled in the smartphone for it runs on the Android Jelly Bean operating system version 4.1. Therefore, loads of games and applications can be further downloaded from the Google Play Store.

Battery Backup

The Lava Iris 356 is boosted by a 1500mAh standard lithium-ion battery but the talk time and standby time are not exactly boosted with just 5 hours of talk time and 200 hours of standby time.

Connectivity Offered

Lava Iris 356 provides Bluetooth and USB port that are important elements for data exchange whereas the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hot spot along with GPRS, EDGE and WAP browser allow users to access the Internet and download data.

Compare

Lava Iris 356 when compared to Micromax A44 has a similar screen with 3.5 inches whereas the resolution offered by the former is much more as compared to the latter. Lava Iris 356 has a higher version of Android with Android Jelly Bean as compared to the Android Gingerbread offered by Micromax A44. Lava Iris 356 offers a 2-megapixel primary camera, which is better in pixel strength as compared to the 1.3-megapixel primary camera offered by Lava Iris 356. Lava Iris 356 has a secondary camera of VGA strength whereas the Micromax A44 does not have a secondary camera. Lava Iris 356 runs on the 1500mAh standard lithium-ion battery, which is higher than the 1200mAh standard lithium-ion battery offered by Micromax A44.

July 2013: Lava Iris 356 is the latest mid carter smartphone from the Indian smartphone manufacturing firm Lava. The smartphone runs on the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system and is powered by the 1.2GHz dual core processor. The camera is of 1.3-megapixel while it is of VGA strength in the case of the secondary shutter.

*        3.5-inch HVGA TFT capacitive touch screen
*        1.2GHz quad core processor
*        Android Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system
*        1.3-megapixel primary camera + VGA secondary camera
*        32GB microSD card slot
*        Dual SIM
*        1500mAh standard lithium-ion battery

Lava, the smartphone manufacturing firm has been there in the country for some time now but the company, unlike its name, has not yet erupted out of a volcano in terms of sales. Although they have not done that badly but at the same time, did not make the kind of impact they would have liked to. Also their marketing strategy along with their pricing strategy is quite similar to a lot of other smartphone brands including Karbonn and Micromax, which have also acted as a hindrance in their path forward. But they are bringing up new devices with the intentions to outsmart their competitors. Lava Iris 356 is a 3.5-inch smartphone running on the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system, which happens to be the latest software platform in the market. The hardware capabilities are also impressive with the presence of a 1.2GHz dual core processor. Although the RAM takes a bit of a hammering with only 512MB which is not bad but would restrict running of certain games and applications within the device. The display is backed by the resolution of 480 by 320 pixels along with 16 million colors. The 112gm weighing device has a length of 116.9mm, breadth of 62.5mm, and a thickness of 12.6mm. Power backup includes 1500mAh standard lithium-ion battery that generates a talk time of up to 5 hours along with a standby time of up to 200 hours. Dual SIM facility is another feature that the user would not mind but heavyweight features like Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hotspot are what steal the show. The latter will enable other devices to cash in on the web server created to access the web. GPRS and EDGE along with a WAP browser are other means that make sure that the user can download data like songs, games, images, and videos or surf web sites like Facebook and Twitter. Games can be downloaded from the Google store available online too, along with a lot of games and applications that come preinstalled in the device namely, Ninja Rush and Saavn. 

The camera is rather weak with only 1.3-megapixel for primary shutter and VGA camera for secondary. Images can be captured at a resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels while the secondary camera works at a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels. Digital zoom, auto focus, and LED flash are some of the features that may compensate the lack of pixel strength and offer better results. Other vital facilities and applications offered by the smartphone include Conference Call, Call Divert, Speed Dialing, Call Recording, Minute Reminder, Black List, White List, Android and Opera, Alarm, Calculator, Call Barring, Call Waiting, Offline Mode, Sound Recorder, Flash Light, Back-up and restore, LAVA Zone, Twitter, Facebook, Gtalk, Local, MX Player, YouTube, Wireless Input Device, Facebook, and Google apps.
