2. At this price point we suggest Lava should have gone for high end processor with atleast 8x cores. However, with this quad core processors and 2 GB Ram the device is fluid and lag free.
3. In most of the photos over the Internet the phone looks like narrow bezel smartphone but sadly the phone has a black strip on the edges of the display which affects the looks. However, it’s not a big deal.
