    Lava A9 is a wonderful phone. You get it in Vasavi, Univercell & Wavetel in chennai. Approx cost is 5500. I was very surprised when i started using it. Wonderful looks, smart features and great interface. I would suggest people to go for it.

    battery backup is more than 4 hrs even when using dual sim. Camera lacks flash but the quality and the options provided are better than what you get in a mid range nokia or a sony (barring cybershot)

    Here is the exact review what you all guys require about LAVA A9.

    The phone is amazing in looks. It looks superb and really stylish in silver color.

    The interface is good, menu style, menu design, font, etc are also fine. The way in which options menu pops up is really cool.

    This is the case where the factor “chinese” comes in. The company is making you fool, as says its 3.2MP, but i’ve checked it, its almost like VGA, giving a resolution of 640×480 only! I was really depressed with this. So be careful before purchasing this mobile phone.
    On various websites, i’ve seen reviews which show it gives a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels, i believe it is false, as i was not able to get that. If anyone knows how to get this, please mail me on

    The sound is okay types. Not that loud, but works!

    Other features:
    A9 comprises several other features like bluetooth, privacy settings, etc which is fine.

    Battery backup:
    Dealers say 3 days, but this phone can go on for 1.5-2 days, when used normally. If you use the camera too often, and listen to music a lot, it would last not more than 1 day! But that is fine, as we see, even boasting companies like nokia, etc. needs to be charged almost everyday after 2-3 months of usage.

    Its available for Rs. 4800/- in Rajasthan, so might be even lesser in other major cities of the country.

    Guys this is just a chinese phone, manufactured actually by lenovo. lava has just changed the brand name, actual phone is lenovo P50.
    it has a vga camera. else all is good.
    battery is dumb! Now upto you.

  15. akshay says:

    all functions are good in LAVA A9 exept that it had very very third class camera, i dont know why they are showing it as a 3.2 MP. they should show it 1.3 mp. and another thing is it does not support most of the games and softwares. I request to the company to plz change the camera of my phone. because i dont want to change my set. MY email is

    Hi All,

    I bought this mobile a week ago and am regreting very badly.

    My advise for those who want to buy this mobile is simply backoff because its not worth even paying 2k.

    Camera is just like VGA and Audio quality really sucks even with the headset. Over all phone performance is very slow and battery does not last long too.
    I must meet the person who invented Audio player for this mobile because nothing works in that.

    You got most of the things which highend mobiles have but here is hardly works.



  17. Salim says:

    I am using LAVA A9 for last one month. Look is good. Camera is just VGA or 1.3. Video better than still. Audio OK. E book reader only text file. Nimbuzz may not work. screen 2.4 inches. Some times may hang.Dual sim working same time. Internet mostly give insufficient memmory warning and will not open.Now I am trying to get Ebook reader for this. if any body can read Pdf files on this pls mail me to

  18. khanjan says:
