Lava A79: Front 2MP Camera With Flash & Android Lollipop For Rs. 5699

While yesterday it was the turn of Micromax and Intex to unveil their new creations, today it is the turn of Lava Mobiles. They have unveiled the Lava A79 smartphone that goes on sale for Rs. 5,699. The Lava A79 is an entry level smartphone and as you might expect it does not have exceptional specs. The Lava A79 has some interesting features for an entry level smartphone such as Smart Music and Smart Screenshot. The Smart Music option lets you change the track you are playing by simply swiping right on your lock screen. You do not have to unlock your smartphone or open the music player app, simply swipe on the screen and you are done. Next we have the Smart Screenshot feature that lets you take a screenshot of your entire social media news feed in one go. You no longer have to scroll down and take another screenshot and join it with the first one.

The Lava A79 sports a rather large 5.5inch FWVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution IPS panel display that is devoid of any protective glass display. You might have already deduced from the screen size and resolution that the Lava A79’s screen has a very low PPI figure that results in low contrast images on the screen. Underneath the hood we have an unspecified chipset that houses a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM which is enough to run the dated Android Lollipop operating system.

The internal memory of the Lava A79 stands at 8GB and you do get the option of expanding that storage to up to 32GB with the help of microSD cards. The unique selling proposition of the Lava A79 is its cameras. We have a 5MP camera on the rear that is accompanied by a single LED flash. The front 2MP camera for selfies is also accompanied with a small LED flash. Both the cameras feature HDR, Photo Timer and Photo Grid functionality.
