Lava Iris Alfa – Pros and Cons
The battery of 2200 mAh seems to be decent, but it could have been a 2500 mAh battery as then Iris Alfa would have impressed many more people. Camera features are not very impressive and many may say it to be one of the cons of Iris Alfa. Lava should have priced it below Rs 6,000 as the competition in the smartphones market has increased to a very good extent. If Lava will offer some accessories or give discount, then some people may definitely find Iris Alfa to be one of the best options for them.
Lava Iris Alfa is going to be one of the options for people looking for Dual SIM smartphones within Rs 7,000. Lava Fuel 50 and Fuel 60 have got popular and that’s why Lava must be having good expectations from this new smartphone too. We can expect Lava to soon come out with more low budget smartphones as well as I hope that Lava will also launch some flagship smartphones for the mid budget segment.
