The screen does not comes with Gorilla glass and is pretty dull under sunlight. The device is just 8.4mm thick and weighs only 148 grams.

Talking about Lava Z10‘s performance it got some hicupps while multi tasking but handeled other social media apps quite effectively. We also faced lag while running some high end games and switching between applications. The phone is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad core Mediatek MT6735 processor and it comes with 2 GB of RAM & 16 Gb(expandable upto 128 GB) of internal storage. The device support connectivity options like GPS,VoLTE,Wi-Fi, microUSB port , 4G, dual-SIM and Bluetooth . On the software front, the device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with company’s own UI on top of it.
Moving on to the camera, the device comes loaded with an 8MP shooter with Auto Focus, , Digital Zoom, Video Recording. It has an aperture of f/2.0. The front camera is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with flash. It has an aperture of f/2.2. With all other downsides, the biggest con of this device is it’s camera. If you want a camera centric phone, stop reading this and find another one. Even in day light, the Lava Z10 shows a bit of noise, and colors are slightly dull, while details are also lost. In indoor it just gets worse.
Lava Z10 is powered by 2650mAh battery, which is enough for a 9-10 hours of usage. This device is a good try by the company but it lacks many things which deprive it from being in the leagues of Xiaomi and Lenovo. If you have a little extra budget than you might like Lava Z25.
