After creating much hype and teasing it for quite some time, Lava today launched the Iris Pro 30. Lava says that the Iris Pro will be a series of premium flagship products with the Iris Pro 30 being the first off the line. With this series, the company is trying to bring out a range of devices that it claims would compete against the premium offerings by the tier one OEMs, but without the exorbitant price tags they come with. We got the device for some time, and here are our first impressions. Also Read - Lava Z2 Max with a 7-inch display launched in India: Price, specifications

The Lava Iris Pro 30 is mainly about its looks and overall feel. There is no doubt that the phone looks good and is surprisingly light, but has an uncanny resemblance to the iPhone 4S and to an extent even the iPhone 5/5S. A fleeting glance at the smartphone is enough to mistake it for an iPhone. Be it the front, or the chamfered edges (made out of shiny plastic) that runs across the rim of phone, Lava certainly made sure that the phone hints the iPhone-like build, as well as the keys being placed similarly. Though, it obviously does not feel like the same, considering that it is made out of a metallic-plastic frame, with a removable back.

The front comes with a 3-megapixel front-facing camera on the top and three capacitive keys at the bottom of the display. The sides have the volume rocker placed beside the power on/off key. The top has a 3.5mm audio jack and the bottom houses a microUSB slot. Moving to the back of the phone, there is the 8-megapixel camera flanked by dual-LEDs.

The Iris Pro 30 has a 4.7-inch HD (720p) display from Sharp with Corning Gorilla Glass on the top. The display offers good visuals and great viewing angles, which we find to be among the best at its price. The touch interface of the phone too came pretty smooth and we did not really find any lags while testing the phone in that short while.

The phone runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with bare minimum changes in the interface, however, what we really liked is the widget that Lava has added in the notification bar. This widget would give the CPU, memory and other stats in a graphical representation.

The phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with SGX544 GPU and is paired with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, which can be expanded by up to 32GB using a microSD card. Wireless connectivity options in the phone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/AGPS and 3G (HSPA+) network support.

For Rs 15,999, the Iris Pro 30 smartphone does manage to score high in terms of looks, but hardware-wise it is just like another smartphone in this league. The phone will be up against the likes of Mircomax Canvas Turbo which too comes with similar features in this price range. Of course, we would only be able to comment on its performance once we get to use it for a longer period of time.
