The emerging trend is clear- Golden colour, below Rs. 10,000 price range and above 1 GB RAM. Well Lava X46 with VoLTE Smart Phone recently introduced in India has it all and maybe with slightly more. Lava is out to test the turbulence in the cut-throat Smartphone market.
As a welcome change, Lava X4G Smartphone is having 2 GB RAM against 1GB in most of its cousins. With the unprecedented higher usage of social media like Whatsapp, users would be greatly relieved with this feature. The 8GB internal storage can be increased with a micro SD card up to 32GB. But this of lesser consequence as most of the critical applications cannot be moved to the microSD card.
