Does it succeed? Does it have the matter to make you invest on it? Does it pave way for Lava to get a share of the market in 2014? You need to read on to find out the answers.

Before I begin to give you my analysis, I will intimate beforehand regarding certain aspects –

  • Lava Iris Pro 30 is sold at Rs 15,999(might vary as per the seller)
  • I am going to review it by compare it with a phone that more or less is of the same price range or are of the same specifications – I will be comparing the specifications of Lava Iris and Moto G
Model Motorola Moto G Lava Iris Pro 30
Display 4.5-inch HD (1270x720p) LCD 4.7-inch IPS HD (1280x720p) screen with OGS
Android OS  4.4.2 4.2.2
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series quad-core processor with 1.2GHz CPU speed 1.2GHz Quad-core CPU
Storage Capacity 8GB/16 GB variants ( no microSD card slot) 4GB (available: 2.43GB), expandable up to 32GB
Camera 5MP rear, 1.5MP front 8MP rear , 3MP front
Battery 2,070 mAh;  2000 mAh
Price 8/16GB:Rs12,999/14,499 ₹15,999/-

While I could have also included the Karbonn Titanium S5 plus since it has the same specifications, I refrained due to the simple fact that it is priced at Rs 11,000 and it would win the battle since it comes for a far lesser price.


If we consider the display of the above three phones, Lava Iris Pro wins it due its slightly larger screen and also comes with Corning Gorilla shield and in the era of phablets even a 0.1 inch longer phone is a grab compared to a shorter screen.

Operating System:

I am going to not deduce the winner here due to the inevitable fact the Lava phone will get 4.4.2 version sooner or later, Moto G comes with latest android since it was formerly owned by Google, else it too would have come with a older OS only(again I am just assuming).

Moto G wins by what I would term as due to just one factor – Snapdragon. Still the other is no less compared to Moto G.

Storage Capacity:

Another point to Lava since it has expandable memory and when there are so many apps flocking around in play store I would never want to see a no space notification on the phone.


Lava comes out on top since it has 8MP and a 3MP in the rear and front respectively

With regards to the battery, it is clearly the Lava Iris model that is better due to the content adaptive backlight control that enables the mobile to last 30% more than the rest.


The Lava Iris Pro 30 gives Moto G a run for its money and look wise too Lava resembles iPhone in every manner due to the superb finish and sleek look.
