About the Phone
Given the affordable rate and the right features, especially the HD+ screen and good battery backup – this phone can prove to be handy and of value. Here’s a detailed list of the pros and cons involved in the Lava Z61:
- Sleek and Slim Design
- Dual SIM Support
- High-Resolution Screen with 18:9 Aspect Ratio
- Affordable Price
- Good Cameras
- Longer Battery Power
- Inadequate RAM
- Lacks Zestfulness
- No Fingerprint Sensor
Overall, the Z61 delivers a pleasant viewing experience, agile battery capacity as well as a good set of cameras that can yield impressive photos. This makes it a natural choice for all the social media diehards who need to have a budget phone with all the above features working without a not-so-necessary adequate RAM to multi-task continuously.
The Z61 Plus is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor clocked with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 32GB. Running entirely on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, the Z61 Plus comes pretty lag-free. The 5.45-inch HD+ touchscreen display with 720 x 1440 pixels resolution, 2.5D gorilla glass protection and 18:9 screen to body ratio are some of the strongest points of this phone that works towards an enhanced viewing experience.
The 3,000mAh removable battery can last easily up to 12 hours and doesn’t have any heating issues.
Going full stack on the sensors like G-Sensor, ambient light and proximity, it also features an 8MP rear and 5MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture yielding some crisp and sharp images – both indoors and outdoors which is a refreshing update compared to the other Lava variants. It can also shoot Full HD videos of 1080p @ 30fps and comes in gold and black colours at just INR 4,819/-.
Having a dimension of 5.77 x 2.76 x 0.34 inches (146.5 x 70.2 x 8.7 mm) and weighing just 139 grams, the Z61 is slim, super light (thanks to the plastic unibody) and a well made, sturdy phone to save you worrying from accidental drops.
The Z61 has a pretty solid 5.45 inches 16M Color IPS LCD HD+ screen with multitouch and 720 x 1440 pixels resolution. The 18:9 aspect ratio and 295 PPI givens it a premium look and feel similar to that of the Redmi Note 5 Pro and Redmi 6A but at an affordable range.
The 1.5 GHz Quad-Core MediaTek Helio is known to work pretty smooth, but as it is clocked at 1GB RAM, it can work slower in many cases. With not enough RAM being a bummer for multi-tasking, this device comes with 16GB expandable up to 32 GB storage and PowerVR GE8100 GPU. The Android 8.1 Oreo is however fresh with keeping the operation lag-free mostly.
The Z61 goes full stack with the 8MP rear and 5MP front camera having f/2.0 aperture with accompanying LED screen flash at the same time. This makes the images look sharp and beautiful with many additional filters, predefined effects that allows capturing the intricacies in an image. This device also supports the Full HD recording of 1080p @ 30fps FHD with Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, etc. working on the video mode as well.
The 3,000mAh removable Li-ion battery can last up to 12 hours even after meticulous usage – adding the final touch of backup power with this value phone. However, in many cases, the phone can heat up while charging and using extensively, so it can seem to be a dealbreaker for some as well.
The Z61 has brought some of the most sought-out features in a smartphone under one package with an affordable price range to make it an obvious choice for Android users. So, if you don’t mind having lesser RAM on your phone – the Lava Z61 can be a worth-it purchase.
