Created date: 09/30/2018, 12:16:48, Updated date: 04/15/2020, 04:48:58

We've conducted a detailed review of the Lava Z50, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Lava Z50

Lava Z50's size

The Lava Z50 is 2.6 inches (66.6 mm) wide, 5.3 inches (135 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.7 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Lava Z50, it weighs about 140 oz (140 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Lava Z50 make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

The CPU performance of Lava Z50

The processing performance of the Lava Z50 is quite low at 1.1GHz×4(Quad core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Lava Z50 only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Lava Z50's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Lava Z50's storage capacity

The Lava Z50 has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Lava Z50 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Lava Z50's screen

The Lava Z50 has a 4.5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen quality of the Lava Z50 is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The camera function of Lava Z50

The performance of the Lava Z50's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The Lava Z50 comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Lava Z50

The Lava Z50's battery capacity is 2000 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the Lava Z50 has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of Lava Z50

The Lava Z50's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Lava Z50

The merits of Lava Z50

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • It feels comparably light.

The demerits of Lava Z50

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The back camera is quite low-spec, so its not really suited for taking pictures to upload to social media.
