Review: Lava Iris 401e

The Lava Iris 401e is here and is now available for Rs 4,249 across e-commerce sites in India. Appearing in blue and grey variants, the Android device has been designed as an entry-level smartphone.

The low price is not surprising as the device runs Android Gingerbread OS, which has almost disappeared to the back stage. This could come as a major setback. Now that almost every Android phones run on Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean, the Gingerbread portfolio may not do good to this rig in the market place.


The Lava Iris 401e has dimensions of 124mm x 63mm x 10mm and features a 4-inch TFT touchscreen with resolution of about 480×800 pixels.

Another low about the device is that its internal storage capacity which sums up to a mere 200 MB. The company has, however, provided a microSD card slot so that you can expand memory up to 32 GB. It comes with 256 MB of RAM and is powered by a 1 GHz single core processor. If you aren’t aware, Samsung’s Galaxy Star also features the same processor but features 512MB of RAM.

Video calling is denied as the front camera is not provided. But the rear shooter comes with good features like LED flash and zoom. The powerhouse of this device is a 1,500mAh battery which renders up to 6 hours of talk time.

On Flipkart and Saholic, the Iris 401e is available for purchase at Rs. 4,249. Flipkart is offering an additional discount of Rs. 212 for those interested to purchase the rig.

Verdict:  Outdated OS, less storage capabilities take sheen out of the Lava Iris 401e.
