T he Lava V2 3GB sports a slim profile like the Meizu M2. Its glossy back panel and smooth side metal frame makes it look good, but also slippery to hold. The handset runs on the latest Android Marshmallow with minimal customization. You get basic features like a call recorder, Turbo Download to combine your Wi-Fi speeds with 3G4G for faster downloads, a smart lock screen, and hassle-free USB OTG drive support. Its scratch-resistant display is bright, renders vivid colours and crisp text that is viewable from wide angles.

The V2 is capable of smoothly running games like Asphalt 8, Frontline Commando and even high-definition movie content. That said, its audio output sounds relatively flat and is not as good as the Asus ZenFone Max. Its battery, which requires a recharge before the day is done, also failed to impress.

Now while the V2’s rear camera is capable of taking good photographs in well-lit environs, quality takes a hit in low-light: photos are plagued with excessive grain and softening of details. That said, it worked well for macro photos. Also, its selfie camera is accompanied with a front-facing flash, allowing for better exposure in low light. Indeed, the Lava V2 3GB’s pocketfriendly form factor is its mainstay , but it could have been a much better phone if not for its middling battery life.
