The Android One initiative promises to deliver the latest software experience with this device along with the timely updates of the OS. The 5.5 inch HD IPS display screen is much larger than the 4.5 inch screen of the earlier released Android one devices. Like all other Android one devices the Lava V1 will also receive regular Android updates for two years. If we consider the available devices in the Indian market almost all of the budget level smartphones support 4G connections. The lack of a 4G connectivity might be a deal breaker for the handset.The metal on the sides and the rear might be a mighty leap for the Android One venture. Thus making the device more sleek and elegant. The thin bezels gives the phone a refined look as well. The 2,650mAh battery has been optimized accordingly for Android One thus allowing the user with 90 minutes of extra usage time.
So what do you people think about the new Android One device? Worth a buy or not?
