    Wow! The Lava seems to be on a role when it comes to launching mobiles phones these days and they have just lunched the Lava Iris X5 and to be honest it’s a very tempting deal and I may be one of the people who will be buying the phone.

    Design:

    The X5 is a really good looking phone and could be one of the best looking phones. I think its better looking that the X1 although they both share the same genes.

    Hardware & Software:

    Lava phones aren’t slouches in this department and the same goes true for the Iris X5. The phone is powered by a 1.2 Ghz quad core processor with 1 GB of RAM. The internal memory of the phone is 8 GB which is very good and there is also a MicroSD card slot present as well. As for the software department, the Iris X5 comes loaded with Android Kitkat, the latest version of Android that there is.

    Display:

    The display of the phone is very impressive, especially when you take into consideration the price. The X5 has a reasonably large 5 inch screen with an HD resolution of 1280×720. This has become a necessity these days.

    Camera:

    This is what everyone is talking about, especially the front cam although the rear camera is very impressive as well. The rear facing camera is an 8 mp unit with a BSI-II sensor and a dual LED flash. It is also capable of taking HD videos.

    The front camera is the one that seems to be the one hogging all the attention and for good reason. It is unlike anything that I have seen on a smart phone yet. The front is a large 5 MP unit with an LED flash and a wide angle lens.

    Conclusion:

    The specifications of the phone seem really good and really amazing for the price. Can’t wait to get in my hands! This could be one of the best phone to come out of Lava yet!
