Lava Agni 5G was released on the 18th of November 2021, and it’s an interesting release. The reason it’s an intriguing release? It’s a mid-range phone, and Lava has historically been known for offering budget phones. The aforementioned phone comes at a starting price of ₹19999, which approximately converts to $264. The phone has 8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of internal storage. If you want more space, you can use an SD card, as the device has a dedicated card slot. Besides an SD card, the device can handle two Nano-SIM cards and connections from 2G to 5G.
The phone only comes in Fiery Blue, and there’s no other option. One of the biggest highlights of this phone is its overall performance. The phone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 5G processor. The phone performs amazingly, which is pretty obvious as the aforementioned processor is one of the fastest MediaTek processors in 2021. The GPU used in Lava Agni 5G is Mali-G57 MC2. The gaming performance is further improved by the 90 Hz screen refresh rate. In the AnTuTu benchmark test, the phone scored 132015 points.
On the software side, the phone runs Android 11. Additionally, while there’s no bloatware, the look and feel of the UI aren’t great. The build quality of the Lava Agni 5G is quite good, as it’s truly sturdy despite having a plastic body. Besides, the phone’s edges are curved to make it easy to hold. The weight of the device is manageable at 204 grams. Similarly, the phone is 6.65 inches tall, 3.02 inches wide, and 0.36 inches thick. The phone has a 6.78-inch FHD+ IPS LCD screen, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
In addition, the phone has a screen-to-body ratio and a PPI density of 396. Watching movies and listening to songs on this phone is pretty fun, but the touch response is below average. In the sound department, the Lava Agni 5G has a loudspeaker and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. For sensors, the phone has an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Coming to cameras, the phone has a quad-camera setup on the back. More specifically, a 64 MP wide-angle, 5 MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro, and 2 MP depth sensor camera.
The 64 MP main camera turns in a good performance, while the other three fail to live up to the expectations it sets. On the front, the phone has a 16 MP wide-angle camera for selfies and video calls. The selfie camera also does a fine job. Dual-LED flash and HDR are some of the features you get on this phone, while video recording can go up to 1080p at 30fps.
For communication, the device has dual-band Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.1, and GPS. The device has FM Radio but lacks NFC, which is usually present in mid-range smartphones. Also, the device has USB On-The-Go and USB Type-C 2.0. When it comes to battery, the phone has a 5000 mAh lithium polymer with support for 33W fast charging. With moderate use, Lava Agni 5G should last you for more than a day post complete charge.
