Lava Iris X1 - Lava's answer to the Moto E?

In this article, I will be discussing Lava mobiles' newest release in the Indian market, the Lava Iris X1. Read on for specifications, price and the initial impression.

Lava mobiles, today released a new smartphone into the Indian market under its new 'X' series, called the Lava Iris X1.

The Lava Iris X1 will be exclusively available on Amazon India and also across retail chain stores and multi-brand outlets throughout the country. This release by Lava, in my opinion is intended to take on the storm Motorola recently created by releasing the Motorola Moto E in India. The first impression you get by looking at this device is its similarity with the 'Lava Iris Pro' as far as looks and aesthetics are concerned. The photographs made available by Lava make this phone seem pretty sleek and sturdy.

That should be one of the great comparison. But the question remains whether Lava be able to compete with the Moto. Given the brand name and the new association with Google, It would be really tough for Lava to take on the might of Motorola.
