Lava Agni 2 5G: Competition
The Lava Agni 2 5G competes with some of the established players in the market, such as the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G and the recently launched Oppo F23 5G. When compared with the OnePlus device, the Agni 2 5G gets a better display which feels more premium due to the curved edges, a slightly more powerful chipset, and the same charging speeds, that too at a similar price point. The only aspect where the Nord is better is that it has a bigger battery.
Comparing with the Oppo F23 5G, the Lava Agni 2 5G has a better chipset, the same amount of RAM, storage and charging speeds, and a better display with a curvature with cheaper price tag. The Agni 2 5G also provides a close-to-Stock Android software experience, making it the ideal option for those who want a cleaner experience. Once again, the Oppo F23 5G wins in the battery segment due to the bigger cell.
However, this doesn’t mean Lava’ Agni 2 5G would be a bad performer in terms of battery backup. If optimised efficiently and correctly, the Lava Agni 2 5G may be able to provide a longer battery backup than both the Nord CE 3 Lite and the Oppo F23 5G despite having a smaller battery cell.
