The phone market has started to revolve around android phones. No matter where you go, you will see people going gung ho about it. It has a brought a wave that is spreading fast and has dominated all parts of the phone market. In this huge wave what we lose is the focus on a middle class segment and the rural segment in the country. In a country like India, ignoring this segment is not possible. They are the major dominating segment in the social hierarchy and should be given enough importance and focus. The major players in the industry now a days have not been able to meet the existing demand and the demand of low end phones by this segment is an additional burden on them. But with the advent of the small scale players in the phone manufacturing industry, the burden has been eased. One of these players is Lava. The company has made a late entry in the phone manufacturing industry but has made its mark even in the short duration. The company has launched various models in the low end segment.
The one latest model from the company is Lava Arc 4. The phone is designed as a bar. The phone is black in color. The front panel of the phone has a screen and immediately underneath the screen is the logo of the company. Below the logo is a square button for navigation. On both sides of the square navigation buttons are the two buttons for accepting and rejecting the calls. The phone is made of plastic but looks very sturdy and does not give a cheap look. The phone has two Sim slots. Both the slots are compatible to all major network service providers. The phone has a very sleek look. The phone has a 1.8 inches TFT capacitive screen. The resolution of the screen is 128*160 pixels. It has 65 k colors. The phone has a brilliant keypad. The keypad is alpha numeric and is very convenient to use. The keys are well spaced and are soft to press. The inbuilt memory is not very great. But the storage space can be increased by insertion of an additional micro SD card. The memory can be expanded to up to 8 GB.
The phone has a single camera only. The camera is 0.3 MP in resolution. There is no secondary camera. The primary camera is not enabled for zoom or flash. The image quality is decent. The camera can also be used for video recording. The phone offers you connectivity through Bluetooth. But there is no Wi-Fi. You can also connect the phone with the help of a USB port. There is an inbuilt media player and music player. The players can play songs and videos in various formats. The phone has a 1000 mAH Li-Ion battery. It gives a talk time of about 2 hours.
The phone has decent feature for this price range. You can buy it if you are looking for an affordable phone.
