The benchmark score says it all about Lava Iris 406 Q. It scores 16488 in Antutu,8277 in Quadrant and 58.8 FPS in NenaMark2. It outperforms smartphones like S3 and Nexus 4!! WOW!! Because of Snapdragon 200 processor and Adreno 302 GPU, the performance will be smooth.We have a 4-inch display which might not be bigger for some users though. It packs a 1700 mAh battery which should do more than enough.We also have a 5MP shooter with LED flash. The camera performance is good considering its price tag.
