Review of Lava Iris 504Q

                               My review:-

Build Quality:
After using the the phone for couple of Months now. i can say that it clearly resembles HTC Buttefly from the front. the overall build quality is very good and its amazingly slim with light weight.Thanks to the OGS technology.my rating for build quality will be 4.5 out of 5 stars.

After using the camera i am really disappointed with the quality of the photos. Although its a 8 mpx camera with many features (BSI sensor) but i must say that its not upto the mark..so camera performance is not very bad but not very good as well..I could record 1080P videos and HDR pictures but they seemed to be blurred..so overall i can say its kind of ok for normal use.Donot expect great pictures or camera experience with the phone.
my rating is 3 out of 5

I think the phones comes with some kind of sound enhancement option like the beats audio in HTC which is actually great..i was able to use some universal 3.5 mm headphones with no issues.
so its great.

I feel that MTK 6589 is a very popular processor in the budges android phones with a 1.2 Ghz Quad core processor. So till now in this Iris 504q i did not felt any Lags or Less to No lags..as i am a heavy user(more than 250 apps installed) still very less lags were felt.Ram was enough for heavy HD games as well .
so my rating is 4.5 out of 5.

(2000 Mah Li-Ion NOT Li-Po as mentioned on LAVA website).
As i use WIFI all the time with lil bit of voice calls , some sms, playing games and also listening to music most of the times...i also do video playback on it.after this much of usage the battery was able to survive 19-24 hrs till it was out of power.
As i had an mmx device and the battery was more or less same.
it does not give that great battery backup but it is acceptable.It could have been better.
My Rating 4 out of 5.

The benchmarks were also as usual for an MTK 6589 processor.
Antutu :12979
Quadrant standard: 3989
Nenamark :46 fps.
Multi touch : 5 point

Gesture Support:-
As this phone has Gesture support. So you can see gestures working in Gallery, Camera(Clicking Images), Fm-Radio (For changing Stations), and in Music player(For changing Tracks). Although its a great feature but i personally font like the feature so much as sometimes without intention to change tracks or capture image it does that by itself. also in the night it is not so stable.

The over all jelly bean 4.2 O.S in the phone is quite stable and fluid. It has many software enhancements like the gestures in gallery, camera, music player and the Fm Radio. but it is not that great sometimes it is not that accurate.
Other software enhancements like added themes and option to change UI color from the settings are great.

So overall at the price of Rs 13,499 it is a great buy with many accessories in the box like Flip cover, Screen protector, OTG cable all  this is great..
Anyone who is confused of looking in this range go for this phone for sure!!!

1. Great Design (Thin and Light).
2. Looks Sturdy.
3. Amazing Sound.
4. Fair Camera.
5. Great for Gaming.
6. Less to No Lags.
7. Some software Bugs.
8. Battery backup is Good.

Top ten things you need to do after buying your ANDROID DEVICE (MTK 6589)

1. Root and Custom Recovery:

 Obviously. This would the first step anyone has to do. For those who don’t know what is rooted phone and recovery partition, you could to the link for more info. But any mediocre or pro android user would consider this as the “mother” step towards modifying your device. Recovery is something you will require for and ever.PS : While installing Recovery, I would recommend all of you to go for TWRP rather than CWMhttps://www.facebook.com/.../558341834230101...

2. Backing up your Stock ROM : 

Wondering what a ROM is ? Well to keep it simple it is somewhat like the OS of your comp. Once you have your Recovery Installed. The first thing you have to do is BACKUP your Stock ROM. This Backup will be helpful if you damage your device(software) or what is usually called as soft bricked your phone. This Backing up of your ROM is also called NANDRIOD BACKUP.https://www.facebook.com/.../558341834230101...


Well this had to be the third. CUSTOM ROM are basically modified ROM. They have many goodies pre installed. There are many CUSTOM ROM available in this forum. . How To: Just go to thread of any custom rom and you will find the instructions HERE

4. Modding or Modifying ROM : 

This is also a very nice feature. Here we basically edit the ROMs internal stuff to our own choice so as to make it better. XOLO Q800 is an awesome mobile, but in one this i.e. MUSIC … it has let down. But well not to worry. Many MODs have been uploaded to improve music, display, performance etc.


5. Minor Tweaking:

 Here you basically change and uninstall some crappy system apps and other unwanted stuff. I found two apps perfect for thisTitanium Backup (Pro) Android Tweaker (Pro)

6. Root Access Browsing and Exploring: 

Well this is one of the main feature of rooting. You can access to the root of your phone. By doing this you can change your boot animation, boot sound, default font, Edit BUILD.prop ( This is very common while modding .. Google it for more info)etc. For this you need root explorer APP : Root Explorer :https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai...orer&hl=en – PAID Root Browser : https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai...free&hl=en

7. Apps and Data backup : 

Well this is very common backup. It is basically copying all your files,apps and their data ,so that you can recover later .. Well undoubtedly the ultimate app for this is TITANIUM BACK UP (root req) and even there is one more app MY BACKUP (root not necessary) . 


These are just for general day to day purpose.• Adobe Reader• Avast Antivirus• All-in-one Tollbox• Android Tweaker Pro• Battery Doctor • Beautiful Widgets• BusyBox pro• Camera Pro • Chrome• File Expert Pro / ES File Explorer :http://android.appstorm.net/roundups/uti...r-android/ • Flash Light• Lucky patcher• Mobile Care by IObit• MX video player • Nova Launcher / Holo Launcher• Office Suite Pro• Poweramp (Music Player) / Walkman / Rocket Music Player Pro

Root Explorer / Root Browser + ROM manager (pro) 
• SuperSu Pro (Obviously it is there in every rooted phone..)• Tapatalk 2• Teminal Emulator • Zooper Widget 

9. Volume Increase:(Xolo, Lava and MTK 6589 Only)(It may or May not work).

Dial *#443366# on stock dail paid and follow this trick to increase volume http:///.../THAT’S IT FOR NOW.. THIS IS JUST MY OPINION .. AND MY IDEA .. IT MAY VARY FROM ONE PERSON TO OTHER..
