What We Liked

  • Best Android 4.4 Kitkat version
  • Does support 3G


  • Battery life is a cautious parameter
  • Although Android Kitkat phones are optimized to run on low RAM, but 512 MB is just OK.


Irix X1 Atom enters Indian smartphone market which is currently leaded by Huawei Honor Bee, InFocus M2, Micromax Canvas Spark and the Android One phones.

Price, Availability

Lava Iris X1 Atom S is priced at Rs 4149 and it's available in Black and White color options.


Iris X1 Atom S is definitely good given at price tag of just over 4,000 but it falls back when it comes to RAM and battery life.
