Lava Iris 504q with 5 inch HD screen and gesture control launched for under Rs. 13500

At a press meet in Delhi on 15th June, Lava Mobiles had announced the Lava Iris 504q, a quad core handset with HD screen, 8MP camera, 2000 mAh battery and with gesture control for Rs. 13,499.

The handset MRP price is 13,499 and probably we could see the price dropping a little bit. Its powered by the same MT6589 hardware that we have seen on many other handsets, however there are certain features that make the Lava Iris 504q unique like the 8.4mm thickness and gesture control.

The gesture control is not that exciting as it makes use of proximity sensors. The proximity sensor can recognize obstacle and really cannot determine the direction. This means that the gesture control is unidirectional, so if you are viewing images you can use the sensor to move to next image, but you cannot use it to move to the previous image.

The Iris 504q comes with 5 inch OGS screen with HD resolution and is powered by MT6589 chipset with PowerVR SGX GPU. The camera is with BSI sensor (8MP resolution) and a front camera of 2MP resolution. The handset is pretty slim and light weight.

        Thanks Sameer,

        But Lava Iris Pro has a 4.7 inch screen… whereas 504Q is having 5 inch.. Already been using 4.5 inch Screen(Lava Iris 455) So want to switch 5 inch.. And I found 504Q is the best.. So sad to hear that it’s manufacturing has been stopped.

    Also does it have A-GPS? I use GPS Navigation very often and dont want to regret my purchase. I currently own a Samsung Note 1 and it immediately connects to the Satellites.

    While playing games like Raging Thunder 2, Bus stimulator 3d and some games which involves Accelerometer actions(tilting mobile to drive), My mobile going to sleep even i am playing, after 2 seconds, its showing unlock screen. This problem annoying me too much. I have n’t faced this problem from purchase. I think this problem might be raised after rooting the phone. Gogi or Any one please help out of this.

    • sagar says

      It is because of your flip cover….
      It has a magnet (upper left corner).
      Its automaticaly locks your screen .
      Dont twist your flip cover while playing
