Lava Iris 504Q rocks !!!!
19 July, 2013
I have purchased this phone on 6 July and now it is 13 days since I am using this phone. It is awesome product by Lava. Till now, my experience is very good with this phone. Truly saying, I didn't find any major/remarkable cons of this product.
Highlights of Features (In my opinion):
1). 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor (while in Samsung Galaxy Grand it is 1.2 Dual Core) give u a very good speed hence one can enjoy muti tasks at good speed.
2). Free Flip Cover feature (Turning ON the phone once the flip is opened, Turing OFF the phone once the flip is closed. This feature is not there in Galaxy Grand) is a add on and gives a good felling !!
3). Touch is very smooth an sensitive..
4). Playing experience (like Temple Run2, Temple Run Oz, Subway Surfer, Minion Rush, Turbo Fly etc) is awesome..!!
5). Gesture Control (Not there in Galaxy Grand) is again a very good feature, bundled with this product. It gives the feeling of a high class (I mean expensive !!) phones.
6). It is very slim and light in weight which gives a very good handling of the phone comparative to Galaxy Grand !!
7). 8 Mega Pixel rear camera is also ok. I am NOT too much bothered about colors and all in the pics !! Simply saying, 8 MP camera of this product is more than sufficient for normal use.
8). Voice clarity is again a plus point of this phone. You can enjoy crystal clear voice using this.
9). It's resolution of 1280x720 (while in Galaxy Grand it is much less) lets you feel true clarity of any HD video file. !!
10). EPO+ AGPS again gives a good quality of navigation. I had used its navigation and found it very useful. Initially, I just switched on GPS and my 3G data plan. It took long time (approx 15-20 mins) to First Fix !! I was disappointed with GPS of this product. But later on I searched on net and found some good information which we usually overlook while using GPS. In Setting--> Location Access, one needs to go to "GPS Satellite" and there he needs to check the check box "GPS EPO Assistance" and "A-GPS". Once he will check "GPS EPO assistance" check box, "EPO Settings" will get enabled. Go in to that. Check the check box "Auto Download". It will download the EPO file. EPO file and A-GPS enhances TTFF (time to first fix) drastically. Now my device is locking my position in 2-3 mins only, that to in the balcony of my flat !!!!! One can get better output (less than 2 min) in open area.
11). Most important is the battery back up ..!!! Till now, it is giving me good back up.. I usually play games, do net surfing, making calls etc.. and it lasts till 1 and half day.. which I think, is decent.
12). Audio quality is also very good.. You can enjoy listing music in this phone.
Cons that I felt:
1). Flip cover is of white color while the phone is of Grey color.. :( If the Flip cover will be of Grey color, it would look more massive !!!
2). Support from Lava is NOT good at all. Initially, I was not happy with the GPS of this phone. It was taking 15-20 min to lock my position. I contacted Lava through their web portal after 2-3 days of my purchase. But till date, there is NOT a single reply from LAVA !!!!!. I hope, I won't need their support in future !! :( :(
3). Internal memory is normal (4 GB, and available to user is approx 2 GB only). Here, Galaxy Grand wins the race. !!! More than 4 GB internal memory could add another feather in this product's cap... !!!
