Should you buy Lava Blaze?
Lava Blaze is an entry-level smartphone which might not be able to do the heavy lifting. It will suitable for those who are migrating to a smartphone from a feature phone and just need a smartphone for surfing, messaging and basic photography. The phone should be able to provide one and a half days minimum back.
MediaTek Helio A22 processor is an old one but has a decent track record in entry-level smartphones so it is expected the user experience will be decent.
As far as the virtual RAM of 3GB is considered we are not really sure about its impact on performance from our experience of using other phones with virtual RAM, especially the ones under Rs 10,000.
As far as design is concerned Lava has tried to offer something unique in way of a glass back which is rare in the budget smartphone segment.
