Lava has recently come up with their new mid-range budget device, Lava Z92. With 6.92 inches, a MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and 3GB of RAM, Lava has come with something brilliant after a long time. Let’s check it out in the Lava Z92 review below:
Design and Display
Lava Z92 looks really good at the price point it comes in the market. The device is sleek, looks good and feels light too. The notch on the too houses a microphone and a camera. The bezels are quite thin at the top and the sides. The edges are curved which makes this device easy to hold.

At the rear of the phone, there is a single camera setup with LED flash and a fingerprint reader. The back panel has glossy look which catches fingerprints and smudges are easily caught. On the right, there is a power button and volume rocker while on the left, there is a place for SIM Tray only. At the bottom, you can see a micro-USB port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a speaker grille.
Coming to the display, Lava Z92 packs a 15.9 centimeters (6.22 inch) HD+ capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1520 pixel resolution. The screen comes with 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass to protect the device. The device has a small notch on the top of the screen.
Under the hood, Lava Z92 has a 2.0GHz Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P22 SoC coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which can be further expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. This is the same chipset we saw in the Xiaomi’s Redmi 6 smartphone. When it comes to day-to-day usage, Lava Z92 gives you a decent performance with no lags, stutters or hiccups. The device runs multiple tasks easily but when it comes to heavy apps, you might have to kill some processes. At the medium graphics, games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 works fine and smooth. But, sometimes you might feel some lags. So, switch to low graphics and have a butter smooth gaming experience. Overall the SoC isn’t bad but it could do with a little more RAM.
Camera and Battery Life
Coming to the camera, Lava Z92 has a single rear camera setup including a 13MP lens with dual LED flash. For selfies, you get an 8MP front camera. In the daylight, you get decent and good performance. The exposure comes right and the details out of the pictures come really good. There are many modes in the camera app like Studio, AR Sticker, Super Night, Video Beauty, Time Lapse, Filter, Template, Panorama, Intelligent Selfie, etc, and a lot more. In low lighting, the camera performance was really bad (as expected at this price point) and the images are barely usable.
The Lava Z92 houses a moderate capacity 3260mAh battery. The device gave around 13 hours of battery life in the HD video loop test. Moreover, if you want to save some battery, you can turn on the Power Saver Mode or Super Power Saver mode. In the box, you get a 10W charger which can charge the device fully in one and a half hour. You can easily charge your device up to 63 percent in an hour of time.
Lava Z92 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box paired with Lava Star OS 5.1. The device came with the Android One Programme. Lava has played with the user interface and made it look little amazing which is optimized. The connectivity options and sensors include Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11n, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Beidou. In the box, you get a USB Cable, charger, earphones, warranty card, battery, screen guard, and a plastic case.

The Lava Z92 comes in two color variants: Ocean Blue and Black Gradient.
The Lava Z92 is a decent device- not too powerful neither underpowered. The processor is capable of performing well, even under moderately heavy workloads like gaming.. The display is bright and vibrant and the cameras are good in daylight but the quality isn’t good in low lighting. One more good thing about the device is that it is a part of the Android One Programme, so it should get updates for two consequence android versions. Overall, it isn’t a bad phone and is a decent choice under Rs.10,000. But, comparing it to the devices like Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 and Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, this device is lacking in a few key areas.
