Lava is an Indian brand of smartphone that is now testing the international market with the release of the Lava Iris 870. Lava is known for making affordable smartphones that are good for looks and do not disappoint on performance. The manufacturer has made quite a few phone in their *00 series including the very popular Lava Iris 810. In this review, we take a look at their new phone, the Iris 870 which has been recently released in Bangladesh and the UAE at very affordable price.
Lava is trying out premium technologies with this phone while trying to still maintain its mid-level price range. The phone comes with a 5-inch screen with a 2.5D arc. The phone has an IPS LCD screen resolution of 720x1280 which gives it a high pixel density of 294 ppi. The curved screen along with the 720p display is bound to give the phone a unique visual experience. Watching movies and playing games on the phone will be a treat. Other than that, Lava has given the screen a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which will resist scratches and give extra protection from damage.
This phone doesn’t disappoint in terms of looks either. It has a fantastic front curved body which fits comfortably in the hands. The back of the phone contains a camera and a LED flash. The speakers are present on the bottom. The phone takes in two SIMs and comes in four colours.
In terms of performance, the phone has a quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex A-7 processor. The Chipset is Mediatek. This superfast processor along with a 2 GB RAM will give you amazing performances. Running an AnTuTu benchmark test on the phone gives a result of 21900 points on average which is as good as some of the other smartphones that are available. The graphics card on the phone is an MALI-4000. Although running heavy-duty games like Asphalt-8 might slow it down, for normal tasks and multitasking, the phone will run perfectly.
The phone comes with Android Marshmallow with Lava’s own Star OS on top of it. The phone has an internal memory of 16GB that can be increased to 64 GB through a dedicated MicroSD slot.
The phone has an 8 MP camera with an aperture of f/2.2. The camera has features like face detection, auto focus and HDR. Although the features are limited as compared to other mid-level phones, the Lava camera does fine while taking normal pictures. It doesn’t do well in low light photography, though. The primary camera can take videos at 1080p at 30fps.
The secondary camera is a 5 MP shooter with an aperture of f/2.2. The primary camera has features like Face Beauty for capturing better images. However, there is no front flash. The front camera can take videos at the 480p at 30fps. These features are good for a mid-range phone like this one.

It has a standby time of about 200 hours. You can get a battery life of about one day with this phone. However, there is no fast charging option on this phone, and chances are, that you will have to keep the phone on charge every night.
