Lava Brings Out The Quad Core Lava Iris Pro 30+

Browse This Page

Lava has launched an updated Iris Pro 30 which will be known as Pro 30+. The new phone came about seven months after the last phone and features a few new updates.

The Lava Iris Pro 30+ goes from a 1.2 GHz dual core processor of the predecessor to a 1.5 GHz quad-core Mediatek 6589 turbo processor. The device comes with 1GB RAM. The major upgrade has been the internal storage. The Iris Pro 30+ takes a leap from the 4 GB internal memory of Iris 30 and takes it to a more functional 16 GB, which is expandable up to 32 GB. The graphics on the device are powered by PowerVR SGX544 GPU clocked at 357 MHz.

The main camera on the Iris Pro 30+ is a 13 MP shooter with a BSI II sensor having a size of 1/3.2 inch and 1.1 micron Omni BSI-II pixel architecture to capture images in low-light. It supports full HD video recording. The 3 MP front camera on the device would be appreciated by selfie enthusiasts.


Like its predecessor, the device has a 4.7 inch, 1280×720 display with a pixel density of 312 ppi. The device really disappoints in the fact that it comes with Android Jellybean 4.2.2 out of the box. An Android Kitkat update would have made this phone more attractive. In times when companies are being judged by the speed of updates, Lava should have taken more care in the operating system department.

The phone supports USB OTG and is powered by a 2000 mAh battery. The phone is priced at Rs.11,990 and will be exclusively available on bundled with a 16 GB memory card. The sale will start from 1pm onwards on August 26. Now considering the price and the outdated operating system, a free memory card would hardly matter. You’d be better off being in line and spending a few more bucks for a Xiaomi phone.

If Lava wants the phone to work, it should come up with an updated operating system as soon as possible.

    I love the way how lava makes really awesome phones but keeps the price low so that the average Indian like me can buy it. I have already placed my order for the phone and i cant wait to rub the phone in the noses of my friends who have bought more expensive phone that not only look bland, but have lesser features.

    The upcoming Lava Iris Pro 30+ looks to be the best the company has produced till date. While the Pro 30 was a success, the Pro 30+ is definitely going to appeal to an even wider market with a host of features added to make this device almost too good to resist. A few issues are there but the good things about the phone are too good for someone to even care about the little bad that exists. Talking about the specific features of the phone:

    Rating- 4.5/5
    The Pro 30+ is equipped with a 1.5 GHz processor that is surely going to make for a fast device that can easily handle the burdens of multi-tasking. The phone disappoints a bit in the operating system department with a 4.2 Jellybean Android version. Although, this version is good, using the 4.4.2 Kit-Kat would have been great.

    Rating- 5/5
    This phone is equipped with a great 4.7 inch display that comes with an Asahi Dragontrail Glass. The screen resolution is HD 1280*720 which is sure to make for a wonderful visual experience. The screen supports 16.7 million colors and comes with the IPS technology.

    The internal memory provided in this phone is, simply put, fantastic. 16GB of internal storage space is sure to be more than anyone needs. However, if need be, you can always use the external memory, which can be extended up to 32GB. The 1GB RAM is also quite sufficient to support all the operations.

    Rating- 5/5
    This is where the phone wins all the battles. The 13mp primary camera is sure to provide a unique experience in capturing pictures. The camera comes with a BSI sensor and also a host of other features including HD recordings. The 3mp front facing camera is more than most other phones offer and is sure to be of great help in all the selfie moments and video calling.

    All in all, this phone is going to be great and everyone looking to buy a new smart phone, for whatever reason, should take a look at this.

    I don’t think this would be a good option.

    It has recently come to my attention that Lava is launching yet another new phone. This one’s called the Lava Iris Pro 30+ (it’s supposed to be an elevated version of the Lava Iris Pro 30 which was launched earlier this year). Considering the kinds of amazing features most budget phones are offering these days in the market, Lava has certainly tried to keep and are offering the same in this particular model. Lets take a look at what that means:

    The memory:

    One of the first things I look for in a phone is decent memory space. iris pro 30+ offers 16 GB internal built in memory which is expandable to a total of 32 GB with the help of an SD card. 16 GB is certainly not a number to be laughed at and to be honest, I was pretty impressed by this. It even has 1 GB RAM.

    The camera:

    The next thing I look at is the camera as I really enjoy snapping pictures with my cell cameras. This phone offers 13 MP as the primary camera along with dual LED flash along with camera features like HDR mode, panoramic view, geotagging and video recording. The primary camera is actually 3 MP (which was higher than I was expecting). So this is definitely an additional bonus.

    Additional features:

    Other important features that one generally overlooks tend to play an important role in the functioning of the phone. People often end up buying a device after looking at two or three specs and then curse the phone for not working when,  in fact, there’s a high chance that the phone is working exactly the way it would if one had just read the other specs. So, some of these are:

    •1.5 GHz Quad Core Processor – I’m expecting this to be super fast and awesome
    •2000 mAh battery capacity – sounds good
    •4.7 inch HD screen – decent size – not too big, not too small
    •Asahi Dragontail Glass protection – a step higher than the Gorilla Corning! Yay!

    This certainly sounds like a very promising device and I do want to buy this once it is launched in my area.
