We've conducted a detailed review of the Lava A55, 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.

Lava A55's features, performance, reviews

Lava A55's size

The Lava A55 has a width of 2.5 inches (63.4 mm), a length of 4.8 inches (123 mm), and a thickness of 0.4 inches (9.7 mm). Men with large hands can easily operate it single-handedly, but a woman with a small hand might feel like the size is a bit bigger.

Assessing the overall ease of carrying the Lava A55 in terms of size and weight, it will not be a problem for everyday use.

Lava A55's screen

Lava A55 has a 4 inch display. It is a regular size, large enough for normal use. However, some users may feel that a bit more space might be helpful.

In terms of screen quality, Lava A55's screen might appear pixelated when displaying images and videos. It should be good enough for normal use.

Lava A55's CPU specs

With the 1.2GHz×4(Quad core) for processing power, the Lava A55 has low performance, and even for net browsing and Twitter usage you will probably feel a little dissatisfied.

The Lava A55 has only 1GB of RAM, quite a small amount. Cases of insufficient RAM occur regularly so even when using light apps there will be instability in operation and jerkiness.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the Lava A55, it is a low-end smartphone and even in everyday use feels jumpy and jerky. There will probably be a lot of cases when you feel that it is lacking in performance.

Lava A55's storage size

The data storage capacity of the Lava A55 is 8GB, and if its main use is for texting and social media then there is no problem, but if you plan to use it for things like photography, filming, and games, you should go with one that is a step up.

The Lava A55 is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.

Lava A55's camera specs

Lava A55 has a 5 MP main camera, which is a relatively low figure. You will feel a little dissatisfied if you take photos regularly.

Lava A55's battery performance

The battery performance of the Lava A55 is 1550 mAh, which is a relatively small capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Lava A55 is not very good. It is enough to look things up on your phone occasionally, but if you are looking something up for a long time, playing games, or watching videos, you should have a spare mobile battery to be safe.

Lava A55's general rating

The Lava A55 is a budget smartphone. As the main smartphone it is somewhat insufficient, and you should consider a slightly higher-end smartphone if possible. It will be enough for people who use only basic functions such as telephone and internet, or people who do not use smartphones.
