The Lava Iris X8 features a 5″ display with a HD 720p resolution. The phone has amazing hardware and has the 1.4 Ghz octa-core processor with 2GB RAM to power the device. The phone runs on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat and has a 8MP rear camera as well as a 3MP front camera which sould be just good enough for selfies. The phone has a nominal 16GB Internal storage with storage expansion possible as well.
