Lava P7 is a 5″ smartphone with a disappointing resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Yes, the screen is big and the smartphone is really thick with its 9.3mm thickness, but this size really doesn’t show its good side here. The display isn’t sharp enough and colors are looking washed, because of the small resolution and big screen. The 1 GB of RAM here is below the minimum for even basic tasks of streaming videos and gaming, so you should not expect some serious performance, neither gaming experience because of 8 GB of ROM.
It’s strange that Lava P7 has so bad performance, even though it’s released at the very beginning of 2016. The 5 MP camera is far below the standard for the time, although 2 MP front-facing camera is forgivable. Recording 720p videos at 30 fps aren’t exactly what you want from your phone. But if you carefully look at the price, you’ll see that this is more than enough for $54.

Lava P7 is a really cheap phone which you can buy whenever you want. To be honest, it works good for this price, although it doesn't have HD display or great camera. I gave it to my youngest son and it still works well for him.
