2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Nice looking polycarbonate back with a gradient design
  • Dedicated Google Assistant key
  • The rounded corners look jagged and imperfect and if you are a victim of smartphone OCD, you could have a tough time using the Lava Z62
  • The speaker grille is located on the back which is very 2016-ish, and means that the speaker is muffled with the phone on its back
  • No fingerprint scanner
  • Face unlock isn't very reliable either

Display

  • Low resolution display - if you’re going to be consuming a lot of content, the Lava Z62 isn’t for you

Software

  • The UI is close to vanilla Android, keeping things nice and simple

Performance

  • Quite average performance with the Helio A22 chipset under the hood (similar to Snapdragon 429) - day-to-day performance is ok, but it's no match for its primary competitors - the Realme C2 (Helio P22) and the the Redmi 7A (Snapdragon 439)

Camera

  • Just about ok cameras for the price (8MP primary + 5MP selfie) - does decently well in sunlight, but low light performance is a struggle
  • Again it's behind it's rivals though - and the Realme C2 especially does significantly better

Battery

  • Good battery life with a combination of a 3380mAh battery and a low resolution display - it will comfortably get you through a day of use

Verdict

  • The Lava Z62 unfortunately doesn’t stand a chance against the competition from the Redmi 7A or the Realme C2 - give it a skip
