If you think the smartphone brand Lava is dead in India, you could be wrong. Lava keeps on rolling out new devices every now and then and the latest in the segment is the Lava Z71 smartphone which is again a Mediatek-powered device.

A major element to consider here that Lava Z71 is a budget-segment smartphone and is a competition to smartphones such as Redmi 8A, Nokia 2.3 and Tecno Camon Go Plus.

However, just as the other smartphones do, this device too has some major pros and cons and here is a list of the pros and cons of Lava Z71 that you need to know before you buy this smartphone.

Pros of Lava Z71:

Lava Z71 contains a 5.71-inch smart screen with u-notch display and hide the notch feature. The display looks good enough for the budget smartphone

It contains the IMG GE8300 GPU which is good enough to ensure great graphics

Under the hood, there is Mediatek Helio A22 octa-core processor which is clocked at 2GHz and this smartphone processor is quite good for the normal smartphone uses.

It also has Android 9 Pie as its operating system

The smartphone contains 32GB of internal storage with a dedicated microSD slot and I think this is quite good at the cost

It consists of 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera with LED flash to ensure great images and videos

It also contains a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and Face Unlock feature as the security features

Cons of Lava Z71:

It has 2GB RAM which means the smartphone is meant for the normal uses, but I think at least a 3GB ram feature is essential nowadays

It has 3200mAH battery which could have been better at the cost as the competitors have really good features

It also has 5MP front camera with front flash and this could have been better considering the competitors.

When you look at all these features, the smartphone costs just 6.3k in India and at this cost, I think even a few cons are considerable. So Lava Z71 sounds a good budget option with its amazing specs. What do you think?
