Tons of 4G mobiles were now on the market with the latest 4G services which are fast as a rocket. Every company wants to steal the market with growing need of budget 4G mobiles. Lava is such a company that is making sure to sell its own products in the competitive market. As lava has already successfully reached with previous models we will also know how this product is going to astonish?


Lava A97 is a very basic smartphone which has been designed particularly well and made with metal like body. The device feels familiar as it has the Asus bottom panel concentric circle design. The design looks mostly nice and clean. This is quite a comfortable smartphone to handle. It is a 5” display smartphone and this is the size most of them wanting for. It has curved edges.

The front camera is located above the display combined with the sensors. Primary camera with LED flash is placed towards back side. The charging slot and the earphones jack are placed on the top. The volume button and the power button comes on the right side. The stereo speakers are present at the rear bottom.  The branding in the middle of the rear case. The three capacitive touch buttons on the bottom panel.

It consists of dual sim slots and a micro SD slot at the back side. Its dimensions are 145.5 x 72 x 9.2 mm and 160 grams. It is available in Black, Gold, Gray colors. Available in black and white colors. The phone is a bit fat with the thickness of 9.2mm. But the phone is strong enough.


Lava A97 is a 5-inch smartphone with TFT display. It has a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels with a pixel density around ~196ppi and displaying colors around 16M. The viewing angles are very good. It is a multi-capacitive touch screen. It comes with a screen to body ratio of 65.8%.


Lava A97 is a 5-inch display running on OS of v6.0 marshmallow. The device is provided with micro sim slots with 4G support. It runs on Quad-core 1.3 GHz x-A7 processor. It has an internal memory of 8GB running on 1GB RAM.

The external SD slot is available and expandable up to 32GB. The primary camera is 5MP with autofocus and LED flash. It features Geo-tagging, panorama, HDR. Secondary 5MP camera is available. Accelerometer sensor is available. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Radio connectivities are available. It is featured with HTML browser. Loudspeakers are available. It has a removable 2350 li-Ion battery.


The device is running marshmallow out of the box which is good. The design of the mobile is fine. What I didn’t like about the phone is its display which is having a lower resolution as well as a TFT display, I would prefer IPS display. And I also expected it to have a 2GB RAM. The device overall performance is good but there are mobiles available out there with better specs at this price like Xola Era 1X.

The camera works absolutely well with great clarity and all the features and the front camera is also good. The battery backup is better with 2350mAh.The call quality is also very good. The camera is ok and a little bit blurry. The front camera is ok. The rear camera is up to the mark. There are no complaints on the camera as considering the price range.


Lava A97 is a good mobile available. This is a basic kind of smartphone with 4G connection and I would say it does have nothing exactly. This is not a preferable smartphone to buy. And the provided 4G alone is not sufficient. It is available at a price range of Rs 5K/-
