About the Phone
Unlike its competitors like Nokia 1, Infocus A2 – the Lava A44 has much better cameras, better operations because of its processor as well as with a much viable Android 7.0 Nougat version – this phone provides you with solid performing features to that of others under the 4,000/- cap. But, despite this because of the low-clarity display, the Lava A44 can still be a deal breaker for those who love to watch movies or videos on their phones. Here’s a detailed set of the strong and weak points for this device:
- Dual Sim
- Responsive Touch Screen
- Dual Cameras with LED Flash
- Quad-Core CPU
- Removable Battery
- 3.5mm Headphone Jack
- FM Radio
- Low-Resolution Screen
- Slow CPU (1.1 GHz)
- No Compass
- No Fingerprint Sensor
Though the Lava A44 doesn’t have a striking design with its plastic-clad rear panel and low-end hardware, it can still work fine for first-time Android, or smartphone users gave its cameras and connectivity features.
Lava A44 has a 4-inch FWVGA display with 480×854 resolution, 245PPI which could make the images, text lack sharpness because of the low resolution. Powered by a QuadCore 1.1 GHz Cortex A53 processor, it runs on Android 7 (Nougat) with 1GB RAM and 8GB (expandable up to 32GB) internal memory. This device also features a dual camera setup – 5MP camera in the rear and 2MP camera in the front with LED flash making it a good camera phone at the given competitive price range. It comes with multiple connectivity features like VoLTE, GPRS, EDGE, 3G, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, etc. all under INR 4,000/-.
As for the battery capacity, A44 has a removable 1,500mAh Li-ion battery which can get discharged pretty fast because of its low position.
Having the dimensions of 123 x 63.7 x 10.1 mm (4.84 x 2.51 x 0.40 in) and weighing 141 g this smartphone is topped with rounded edges on all sides and the volume keys and power button placed on the right and the capacitive touch buttons at the bottom of the screen. The design might not seem alluring right away but can be handy for being lightweight at the same time. This device supports Dual SIM (Micro-SIM) setup, which can be ideal for a lot of users with multiple connectivity setups.
With a scratch-resistant 4-inch FWVGA display, this smartphone features a TN capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixels resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and 245 ppi density. Because of the low resolution and lack of light sensors, this device can do pretty bad when used outdoors in the bright sunlight.
This device has a Quad-Core 1.1 GHz Cortex-A53 processor with MediaTek MT6737M chipset and Mali-T720MP1 GPU presenting an excellent performance while operating. It also features Android 7.0 (Nougat) platform and 1GB RAM that makes it capable of multi-task but can lag when used for graphics-rich gaming experience since it lacks a compelling processor.
Lava A44 has a decent set of front and rear cameras – 5MP and 2MP accordingly with LED Flash support enabled in both. This feature can stand out to the new users, and the image quality is relatively decent of this device, thanks to the Real-time Bokeh effect provided by Lava.
This device holds a removable Li-ion battery of 1,500mAh which isn’t much power to stay charged for long and thus would require random charging. Also, A44 doesn’t have any quick charging options.
Overall, Lava A44 is a good phone for beginners. Despite lacking in a rich display and high battery capacity, it comes with a robust set of features which can prove to be useful if you’re on a budget and looking for a phone that can work well for your everyday needs without much of graphics involvement.
