Lava X81 Review
The launch of the Lava X81 is the new smartphone launch in India. Lava had recently launched the X46 smartphone and the X81 release comes close on its heels. Of the many phones launched under the “X” series, the X81 was unveiled a couple of days ago. It will be available on Flipkart in a couple of days’ time. You can also get the device from retail stores as well.
To understand the phone better, let’s have a look at the Lava X81 specifications in detail. Considering the lava X81 price tag, you get premium-like features in the phone. However, a big drawback in the phone is that it lacks fingerprint sensor. For a smartphone in this price range, the X81 should definitely have one. As per the Lava X81 review, the company has joined hands with telecom provider Airtel and will be offering double data. However, there are no details of the top limit or validity period. So, we will have to wait for the announcement. But, considering the Lava X81 price, we should have something good to come by.
Lava X81 Design & Built
From the looks, the Lava device is certainly a good to look at. With dimensions of 142.6×73.4×8.4 mm, it feels good in the hands as well and is easy to handle. The back of the device houses its primary camera to the right top corner along with the dual LED-flash. The X81 comes in two colors only, namely Gold and Space Grey.
The device has been officially released on June 10 and has become available on the Indian market.
Lava X81 Specifications
The Lava smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based star OS 3.0 out-of-the-box. The device is powered by a 1.3 GHz 64 bit MediaTek quad-core processor and is helped by a decent 3GB DDR3 RAM. Though the processor could have been a tad better, the better RAM should get things done.
Lava X81 Battery & Camera
Under the hood is the 2,700Mah Li- Polymer non-removable battery. Like the display resolution, Lava could have increased the battery a tad more as it looks a bit downgraded if the Lava X81 price is taken into account. The talktime it offers on 2G and 3G are 17 hours 53 minutes and 9 hours 50 minutes respectively. On 2G, the standby time is 300 hours.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the rear and front cameras are 13-megapixel and 5- megapixel respectively. The primary camera has dual-LED flash along with f/2.0 aperture. The main camera has features like Beauty-fi and Pic-focus. The secondary camera in the device also has a flash to the front. So, grabbing selfies will be easier and more fun.
Lava X81 Display
The smartphone has a 5-inch HD display and comes with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The device has an IPS 2.5D curved display, as per the Lava X81 review. The pixel density is 294ppi. For the protection of the screen, there’s the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 in place. For a smartphone falling in a price bracket of above Rs. 10,000, we can certainly expect something better than the display specs. There are many devices in this price range offering better display options.
