Lava has been known for manufacturing easily affordable and very functional smartphone devices. It manufactures premium phones under the Xolo label and budget smartphones under its own name. Two of its latest products are Lava Iris 505 and Lava Iris 506Q.

Let us give you a brief overview of both the smartphones:
