Design and Display

What you have here is more like a generic smartphone with a plastic body work. This is understandable considering that it is a low budget smartphone and there’s not much put into its design.  In a way,  this does not mean it is not good looking but it is just simple in terms of the design.

As I said earlier,  the smartphone’s features are pretty basic. In that regard,  the Lava A97 has a 5.5-inch FWVGA (800 x 480 pixels) display on a TFT panel.

Like most smartphones in its category,  the battery capacity featured here is quite small.  The Lava A97 for instance cones with a 2, 350mAh battery. Although, you should be able to squeeze a day of usage on low usage.

Although the Lava A97 might not be the best option for taking pictures. It offers quite an okay 5MP camera on the rear side and another 5MP camera on the front side both equipped with a flash.

Not much is expected of the Lava A97 and not much was given. In that regard, the smartphone has a Quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731G processor running at 1.2GHz and an ARM Mali-400 GPU.
