Lava Iris X8 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Lava Iris X8 at a Glance:-

It is decent budget Smartphone featured with 8 MP Camera having Dual Flash, Mediatek 1.4 GHz Octa-core processor, 2 GB RAM, 5.0 inches Display and 2500 mAh battery. Design of the handset looks somehow copied from iPhone, having flat rectangular shape and faux metallic body made up of plastic, phone looks classy but its slightly heavier weighted 160 grams. 
The display is sharp; colour production is nice while having 294 ppi display density. display is protected with Asahi Glass. The Mediatek MT6592 processor along with 2 GB RAM runs nearly all the apps but long time gaming causes heating. 2500 mAh battery gives average battery backup.
