Lava Iris Pro 30

Lava Iris Pro 30

Plan Android telephones have had an awful notoriety for a considerable length of time. They’re generally wobbly, abate, appalling, and sold by moderately obscure brands. Be that as it may could all that be evolving now? It appears to be just as high-end segments are appearing in low-valued telephones, development quality has enhanced quickly, and the vast majority of these organizations have been around for a considerable length of time to be recognized commonplace.

Magma is one such organization, and its most recent item may really change individuals’ observations of what a mid-plan Android telephone might be. It isn’t terrible taking a gander whatsoever, and despite the fact that the iphone-enlivened styling is a touch self-evident, it has a couple of interesting touches. Regarding details, the HD 720p screen is the superstar. The extent that development goes, you presumably wouldn’t have the capacity to tell right away look that this is not an expensive telephone. In short, its one of another type of plan Android apparatuses – ones that are attempting quite genuinely to pull in clients who wouldn’t usually even consider providing for them a second look.

Look and feel

There’s no denying the way that the Iris Pro 30 is an iphone twin. Everything from the extents to the bends to the band around its sides is reminiscent of the plan that was the trademark of Apple’s famous iphone 4 and 4s, in spite of the fact that its physical size is more like the iphone 5 and 5s. Where the Iris stands separated is in its utilization of materials and extents. The back board is quite made of plastic, which looks textured however is smooth to the touch. The Iris is likewise more slender and lighter, yet taller and more extensive, to oblige a bigger screen.

The front face is practically totally dark. You can obviously see the speaker grille and Polaroid on top, however the capacitive catches underneath the screen are imperceptible till you touch the spaces where they ought to be. The metallic edge around the edge is a gunmetal colour, as opposed to stainless steel. You’ll discover the power/lock and volume rocker on the right edge, a 3.5mm headset jack on the top, and a Micro-USB port on the bottom. Other than that, there are no noticeable catches, folds or ports.

The back spread is gratefully free of conspicuous marking. There’s an inconspicuous Iris Pro 30 logo right in the center, and a more conspicuous Lava logo on the bottom. Indeed the set patterns for the Polaroid lens, double LED glimmer and speaker grille are tastefully planned. We’re likewise joyful to note that the Polaroid lens doesn’t project from the back.

The spread peels off effortlessly, however we’re not certain to what extent the 12 small catches around its edges will keep going. Underneath the spread, you can see the battery in a compartment without anyone else’s input, however it isn’t removable. One of the SIM card spaces fits consistent measured SIM cards while alternate takes Micro-Sims. The microsd card opening could be discovered right beside them. The spaces aren’t overall labelled and each of them has an alternate instrument – the bigger SIM opening is planned such that cards can simply be slid into it, inasmuch as the other two have metal folds that need to be raised. The Micro-SIM must be slid into its space’s metal fold which then flips back up to bolt, yet the microsd card necessities to be laid even on the opening’s exposed metal prongs, after which the fold might be secured on top of it. The entire methodology is unnecessarily fiddly and prolonged.

Performance and battery life
The Iris Pro 30’s benchmark results were extremely enlightening. This is a phone that’s being sold purely on the basis of its looks and cost. Even Lava’s own website neatly skims over the parts where hardware specifications come into play. Considering the other corners that have been cut, we were expecting performance to suffer quite a bit, and it did.

The Mediatek MT6589 processor is simply not cut out to be a speed demon, and as a result, the Iris Pro 30 returned rather mediocre results in most of our formal tests. The score in AnTuTu was 13,755, which is about half of what a high-end phone should achieve today. The Quadrant test was much the same: only 3,936 points as opposed to at least 5,500 for similarly priced phones. SunSpider took 1445.2 milliseconds to run, which is also about 30 percent slower than we would have liked. Graphics-intensive tests didn’t fare too well either. 3DMark’s Ice Storm Extreme scenario returned a score of 1554, and our GFXbench simulation ran at only 4.9 frames per second.

We also have to note that the phone didn’t feel snappy enough when loading apps and multitasking between them. This is the tradeoff we were expecting in a phone with a HD screen that costs less than Rs. 16,000. Don’t expect to be playing any high-end Android games on this phone.

On the other hand, we were impressed with the Iris Pro 30’s battery life. Lava claims another innovation here: a content-adaptive backlight that can automatically dim itself to conserve power when the situation demands it. We were happy to discover that the battery lasted through a full day of medium to heavy usage with a fair amount of power left over at the end. In our formal rundown test, which consists of an endless video loop with the brightness set to 50 percent and features such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth deactivated, the phone lasted for an impressive span of seven hours and fifty minutes.
