DesignandFeel

Lava Iris N350 is sleek and slender handset that measures around 115 x 61.5 x 11.9mm in dimensions. The mobile phone feels quite comfortable to hold owing to its 115 gram weight. Available with round edges, N350 comes with 3.5-inch LCD Capacitive Touchscreen, which houses Options, Home, Back and Search buttons at the bottom of front panel. Also, a 0.3MP front camera has been placed at the top left of the screen along with sensors on the right.

The rear of the mobile phones has been provided with a 2.0MP camera on the top left and Lava badge at the bottom. Further, the phone has been made using premium plastic material that gives it a shiny appearance. Overall, the build quality is quite decent though the phone might attract dust and scratches.

HardwareandPerformance

Lava has made sure to offer the consumers with an advanced handset integrated with rich features at an affordable price range. Iris N350 is the new addition in the brand’s lineup. This next generation mobile phone runs on 1 GHz Processor and operated on Android 2.3 GingerBread OS. Further, it supports GSM 900/1800 MHz networks and is powered with 1300 mAh battery.

The phone comes with 160MB internal space and supports memory expansion up to 32GB via TF card. Further, the user-interface is quite simple and clean, which means users can navigate through the Menu and other apps without any hassles.

LavaIrisN350Features

The inclusion of 1 GHz processor makes N350 a rocking phone. Multitask or run numerous apps, Lava N350 provides an amazing user-experience. And with Android 2.3 version, the phone seems to run various HD games. The touchscreen is vivid and known for its responsiveness. Also, this new phone supports inbuilt Proximity and Gravity Sensors.

Further, it has a FM Radio with recording and supports 2G EDGE/GPRS, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity. Though phone is quite good, it does come with its share of problems. The headphone provided in the content box is not good enough. And we find that N350 internet speed is totally a disappointment. The loading is sure to take hell lot of time.

FinalVerdict

Verdict Our Lava Iris N350 Review recommends that purchase this phone only if you are looking for something decent under 5K. Though it has good features but we think N350 is not made for a long race. The major drawback that this handset comes with is, it has no 3G support; so for what exactly front camera has been given? Though users can use Skype for video calls still the need to have 3G is must in present day mobile phone.
