Detailed Review of Specs:

The most important thing about the Lava A97 is that Lava made it possible to deliver a 4G VOLTE phone at a price as less as 5,600 INR. Another important highlight of this phone is the battery backup. The 2350 mAh Li-Ion removable battery is providing an excellent power backup for this phone and makes the users really happy. The Lava A97 lacks the availability of a finger print sensor in it. However, this cannot be considered as a major drawback. Most of its competitors that comes at this price have also not included this feature. Android Marshmallow v6.0 seems excellent in a smartphone at this price.

Talking about the imaging section of Lava A97, both the cameras are found to be above average. Both of them comes with a LED flash option. The rear camera can click images at a resolution of 2592 x 1944 Pixels. HD recording facility is a very good option in this phone considering the price of this phone. The TFT display of Lava A97 is a major point of concern for the users. With a screen resolution of 480 * 854, it has a pixel density of 196 ppi only. This is very much low and hence the users are not able to enjoy the expected features of the touch screen properly. Three different color variants are available for the Lava A97 – Blue, Gold and Grey.
