Lava Pixel V2 Vs Lava Pixel V1 (Android One)
Lava has launched a new smartphone Lava Pixel V2 successor of Lava Pixel V1. The move may be strange bizarre as Lava has partnered Google and launched the Lava Pixel V1 in July 2015 with almost similar specs.
If Lava is planning to sell similar specs, similar price smartphone then the whole Google Android One mission which already is in poor shape, even tumbles down more.
The Google Android One initiative is all about providing connectivity and smartphone android experience to masses. With Google partners like LAVA mobile going there own way with new product launches which are very similar to Android One smartphone and at a cheaper rate makes it a bit strange.
Powering the Pixel V2 is the 64-Bit MediaTek MTK6735 Quad-core processor along with a 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage space (lesser than Lava Pixel V1 which has 32 GB of internal storage).
The screen size is reduced by 0.5 inches than its predecessor and measures 5.0 inches protected with Dragon Trail glass.
The Pixel V2 comes with a 13 MP primary camera better than its predecessor’s 8 MP sensor gimmicked as 13 MP.
The smartphone comes with the beautify software to enhance your selfies.
The front camera is 8 Megapixels and comes with LED flash which is also an upgrade compared to the Lava pixel V1.
The Lava Pixel V2 is not an Android one smartphone like the Pixel V1; the Lava Pixel V2 has nothing to do with the Google Android One initiative.
The lava Pixel V2 runs on the latest Android Lollipop (5.1) OS, not as bloat free and pure as we saw on the Lava Pixel V1. It comes with Lava’s own skin Star OS 2.0 which adds features and Apps from Lava.
The lava pixel V2 has many improvements when compared to the pixel V1 like a better processor, 4G connectivity, and a good camera, the price of the phone is also lower than the Lava pixel V1.
The new phone will be available online as well as physical stores and carries a price tag of Rs 10750.
