Lava has launched a budget Android smartphone in the form of Lava Iris 3G 356 which is priced at Rs. 4,499 in the Indian market, and it does come with the basic specs, but the good Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The main selling point for this device is the seamless 3G connectivity and the direct 3G calling which the company is promoting the device with, and internally the device is powered by 1 GHz Dual core processor.
When it’s the 3G connectivity being promoted, you really shouldn’t expect anything else much because you are bound to see only that and nothing much in the other specs, as the rear camera that you see in the Iris 3G 356 is a 1.3 megapixel shooter which comes with a flash, and there’s a front VGA camera which would assist in the video calling through the 3G connectivity.
Being a Dual-SIM device, the prime focus of it is for the communication, and thus there’s nothing much on the entertainment part. There’s a W-CDMA + GSM SIM compatibility, and the screen size of the device is 3.5-inch with the HVGA display having a very subtle resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. The primary camera can capture the videos at 30 fps, but the quality of the video capture is 3GP.
The battery capacity of 1500 mAh is pretty good for the device, which would be able to support some good time for video chatting. The internal memory is available as follows:
Application Memory – About 100 MB and User Memory – 20 MB, rest of the memory is used by Jelly Bean Operating System
Internal: 512 MB ROM
Expandable: To 32 GB using MicroSD card
Check below for the technical details and specifications of the Lava Iris 3G 356 which could be a good option if you are looking for a cheap 3G calling device with nothing much else to talk about, and especially when you are on a tight budget.
