The speaker has a bit low audio power , but sounds cool with ear plugs. 
Now, lets talk about camera, it's camera seems to perform well with ample light ,but when zoomed in,say about 100% quality gets worse.Video recording quality is some what average.
Overall the LAVA Iris 504Q is  good advanced phone with a rare features and with a mid ranged price.

After the Xperia Z smartphone ,which has managed to create  more than a buzz in the market ,the brand is taking over the tablets with XPERIA Z TABLET tablet.

It’s sleek and slim design gives it an extremely good look.The  Z tablet is extremely thin and SONY claims it to be the world's thinnest tablet.Its half the size and weight as compared with ipad.


The XPERIA Z TABLET runs on a snapdragon S4 quad-core 1.5 GHz  processor and the user seems much like Android.The multimedia processing quite supportive on the Z,specially the video quality which  gives a delightful movie experience in it.
The camera -8.1 MP rear and 2.2 MP front is quite an average number as compaired to ipads. The battery life does manage  to surprise you ,as for a tablet ,the Z is far better thn the rest.

The one and only bad point of XPERIA Z is the display quality ,  its pixel density  is 224 ppi,which is low as compared to 264 ppi of  
ipad.But the 1920 × 1200 pixel resolution increases it's plus point.

It has successfully passed the waterproof test.   



If you want to buy a desent and good looking tablet,XPERIA Z TABLET  is a good choice.But combine the price,looks and performence,its' not the worth the hype.The XPERIA Z TABLET  IS a good device but certainly not a great one keeping in mind the ipad's price,performance and looks.


PRICE:         ₹46,990

SCREEN:     10.1-inch                       1920× 1200 multi-touch


OS:   Android Jelly Beam


PROCESSOR:1.5GHz quad-core

3D –addicts ,here is a treat for you,the brand new MICROMAX CANVAS 3D just at ₹9,999.
You must be thinking ,should i put on those crippy 3D glass to have my 3D experience.But the ans is no,you have to just watch it from a particular angle.It looks similar to the LG OPTIMUS 3D.


At 12.7 cm ,the screen looks bigger then the LG and HTC 3D products.The clarity in 3D is much more better.The device is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor,followed by 512 MB RAM and has a most wanted 4 GB on board memory and of course a micro SD card slot.The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Beam makes access more simpler and faster.
The canvas 3D contains a five mega pixel auto-focus camera,with dual flash camera,at 0.3 mega pixel,is just good for video calls.
The audio  volume is low through speaker,but it's decent through headphones.
The battery backup is excellent.
It's a dual SIM phone and you can take advantage of lower call rates on one and low browsing charges on the others  .


The MICROMAX   is a good phone.I don't think any other company in near future would provide 3D enabled phone at such a good price. For game and 3D lover ,it can be lucky draw for them ,as now adays there alots of mind blowing 3D games a available on the Internet world.So,download ,play and enjoy.
