Design

Lava Z50

Comes with a Plastic back that’s removable, and looks good enough for a budget friendly smartphone. No special features at the rear, just the rear camera and LED flash which are horizontal at the top left.

Lava Z50

It’s also obvious the company ditched the fingerprint scanner here. Fans have to get the more advanced Z91 to use the feature. Measuring 9.7mm in thickness, it’s quite bulky like most budget phones. It weighs 140g and available in Gold, Black colors.

Display

Lava Z50

There’s nothing bezel-less about the screen here and that was expected. Nonetheless, it dishes out a 16:9 aspect ratio, offering more screens than bezels. Three navigation buttons sits pretty at the bottom bezel. The top bezel houses the selfie camera, speaker grille and ambient light sensor.

The 4.5-inch TN TFT capacitive touchscreen won’t be winning any awards here. With a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and 218 pixel per inch density, the visuals on this baby will be pretty basic. The screen stretches up to 62.1% screen to body ratio, while a Corning Gorilla Glass 1 protects it all.
