2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Metal unibody design, with a 2.5D curved glass display giving it a polished premium look
  • Feels good to hold as well
  • Quick, accurate fingerprint sensor built into the back, that supports app encryption too
  • Decent speed/performance in daily use - handles all the apps thrown at it - gaming performance is decent too without any frame drops
  • Since the display is glossy it attracts fingerprints


  • Decent display - bright, vibrant - sunlight readability is acceptable as well
  • Come with one-time mobile screen replacement for a year
  • As the phone just has an on-screen button, the big bezel at the bottom can look empty and awkward


  • Lava's custom software over Android (StarOS UI) is buggy at places, often unintuitive, and packs a lot of bloatware


  • Decent camera - daylight and HDR shots are good, though low light performance is pretty average
  • The front facing camera, with flash, is good too for selfies and the images are sharp and crisp


  • Good battery life - lasts for a day even with heavy usage, and also has Power saving and Super power saving modes
  • Doesn't have fast charging technology like some competitors, so takes a good two hours for charging from 0 to 100%
