On the other hand, it comes 3GB of RAM with 32GB of inbuilt storage, which can expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD card.

The phone runs smoother also it has some pre-installed bloatware in it like – Gaana app, Hike Messenger, Amazon, Google Duo, SonyLIV. You can uninstall the apps if you want. The overall performance of the UI is Good.


Lava Z-series is known for the best camera in the Lava phones. Lava Z60, Z80, Z90 has a bokeh effect, which is similar to portrait mode.

Talking about the Camera, I impressed with the results of an 8-megapixel front camera which captures some good photos in daylight. Also, it has a beauty mode option by which the camera can automatically capture your picture clearly, which cleans all the spots or pimples on your face if you have. The back camera is working fine in daylight, but in low light the performance of the camera is decent.

It could take 1 hour and 30 minutes to charge the phone total, comes with 3A of charger which is faster for the MTK6737 processor. The battery performance is decent for the budget price segment.
