The quality of the display is decent, not bad you can easily adjust to it but the 2.5D curved edges look fantastic with the shape and size of the Lava Z90. According to me, The quality of the display is low in this price segment, but the overall experience of the display is excellent.


Lava Z90 Review – It packs with 1.3Ghz Quad-Core MTK-6737 processor which is running smoothly on this device. On the other hand, it comes 3GB of RAM with 32GB of inbuilt storage, which can expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD card. You can also play massive games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5, and more on this phone. The games run smoothly on it without any hanging, lagging, or heating issue.

User Interface:

Talking about the user interface of Lava Z90. Most of the smartphones launched by Lava is based on Stock Android UI whereas Lava Z90 runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat with Star OS 4.1. As it runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, it has split screen feature which is a useful feature. 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. You can use bokeh effect to blur the backgrounds of your surroundings.

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.

Lava Z90 has 2,750mAh of the battery which works along a day with a full charge. 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.
