That is why Lava mobiles can be seen in the hands of normal average person in India. The company also taking part of MakeInIndia campaign contributing to the economy of the nation.
Back In September, this company had announced a new variant called Lava Pixel V2, as a successor to its previous Lava Pixel V1. But this phone came with lesser specs compared to pixel v1, so as the price (This device is priced at Rs.9,999/-). So let’s take a look at this device and find out what it has to impress us with.
Design, Dimensions and Display
This is a typical LAVA designed smartphone with curved edges containing metallic finish. Design looks decent.

Pixel V2 measurements are 141.6 mm length, 70.8 mm breadth and 7.6mm thickness. It weights 128 grams in hand and available in two colors: Royal Sparkle Black and Icy White.
As you can see, these are appropriate specs for a 10k phone. Compared to Pixel V1, which had 5.5 inch display with 720p resolution, Pixel V2 has 5- inch screen. On a 5 inch screen, 720p HD display would look nice with appropriate brightness and viewing angles. The device only 7.6mm thick, and feels light in hand.

Now enough of listing features, let’s take a look at how this camera would perform. On paper, 13MP AF camera and 8MP selfie camera with flash are assets for this device at this price. The primary camera would give nice shots for you and performs decently. Even though this shooter may suffer at night times a little bit, it will fulfill your needs. Front camera also would perform decently considering its price.
