Lava today revealed yet another budget entry level smartphone, Iris 414. Priced at just Rs. 4,049, it is a Dual SIM phone with 4 inch touch screen display offering 800 × 480 pixels resolution. The phone is running on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and powered with 1 GHz processor and
512MB of RAM. Obviously the processing is too low but that’s what we expect at such cheaper cost. Furthermore, Iris 414 has 4GB internal storage memory with support of SD card upto 32GB. The phone comes with 3.2 Megapixel rear camera having LED flash, while we get a 0.3 Megapixel VGA front-facing camera for video calling and conferencing. Lava Iris 414 supports basic connectivity options only such as 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS. It is running on 1400 mAh battery.
As the phone clearly appears entry level, you may require some tools to make most out of it. So, you must download its PC Suite and Lava USB driver from here, absolutely free. USB driver lets you connect your phone with computer so that you can manage or transfer data from PC to phone or vice versa. If the PC wont find proper drivers installed, it will not detect the phone. So, it is very essential, also because if you ever plan to Root your lava iris or want to test out some third party custom ROM, you must have these drivers.
On other hand, PC Suites are important because they let you Backup, Sync, Share, Restore, update firmware, backup installed apps, share mobile internet and do lots more. These cannot be done with the phone itself, especially not with an entry level smartphone like Iris 414. So, to make the best use and to increase productivity, you must download this Lava PC suite. It lets you sync important informations from the phone such as contacts, messages, bookmarks, emails, etc with programs like MS Outlook and even with cloud services such as Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc so that you can access them anytime from anywhere. Using this tool you can also Backup the complete phone on your pc including all settings, apps, files, folders, etc which can restored back to the phone anytime, without loosing a single file, in case anything goes wrong with your phone. There’s lot more to do.
