Lava ARC 1 Plus Black - Expert Reviews


With a number of tier2 companies out there in the market, it becomes difficult for a company to stand out. Also different companies have different strategies as not all tier2 companies are trying to compete with the high profile companies. A company like Micromax released HD canvas so as to compete with Samsung Galaxy Note2. Working on your Flagship device is a signal that you are trying to raise your game but there are other who simply cater to the low income group population, the rural part of the country. And although Lava has done well with their sales in that part of the population, the company has not really erupted like a Volcano as they would have liked. Lava ARC1 Plus is the successor of ARC1 and has a 1.8-inch screen and the device has a nice glossy look to it from the outside. It is available in the colors of Black, White and Green. There is a alphanumeric keypad for the users to communicate with the device. A VGA camera is attached to the back of the device for clicking pictures. The quality of images is reasonable, certainly not more than what a VGA camera is expected to produce. There is the camera zoom facility to support it further. Videos can also be shot but in case of dark backgrounds, the quality falls. MicroSD card slot is located at the top of the device through which the user can expand the external memory of the device up to 8GB, which means a huge collection of data can be stored which may include songs, games, images and videos. Since the internal memory is minimal, the microSD card slot would come in use in all probabilities unless and until the user has no intentions of storing more than a few contact information and SMS. Internet can be accessed through the GPRS facility but Wi-Fi not present.

The built-in WAP browser is also available for the user to access Internet. Bluetooth facility lets the user connect with other devices and exchange data wit it while the USB port facilitates the same thing but via USB cable. The user can also charge the device by connecting the device with a computer or a laptop through a USB cable. The dual SIM facility lets the user keep two SIM's in the same device. The user can thus travel to different states and not change devices in order to communicate with others. Both the SIM cards have to be GSM though. Songs and videos can be heard and watched respectively through the music player and the video player whereas the FM radio is also present for listening to songs on the popular radio stations. Powered by the standard lithium-ion battery of 1,000mAh, which gives a decent amount of talk time and standby time. Some other features offered by the device include LED Torch Light, Multi Languages (English & Hindi) and Auto Call Recording, Mobile Tracker.

Operating system and UI

Lava ARC1 Plus offers a 1.8-inch miniscule screen that can be interacted with through the alphanumeric keypad. There is a 3.5mm jack at the bottom for attaching an earphone or other multimedia devices with the handset.

Other Features

Lava ARC1 Plus has a music player and a video player where the former lets the user listen to musical tracks and the latter watch videos. FM radio for listening to desired radio stations is also available.



Lava ARC1 Plus has a VGA camera for clicking pictures and shooting videos. The quality of result produced depends on what one expects. This certainly is not a camera phone but it is always useful to have one in case of emergency and that is what this one provides.



Lava ARC1 Plus has the WAP browser along with the GPRS for accessing the web. Web sites with low server signal and traffic would be easily accessible while other high profile ones would be difficult to get through. Downloading of data is not going to be easy either but data on a smaller scale can be downloaded.



Lava ARC1 Plus has a meagre internal memory for storing data. The user would only be able to keep a some contact information along with some SMS. MicroSD card would be required for expanding the external memory up to 8GB so that more data can be stored including songs, games, images and videos.


Other Features

Lava ARC1 Plus has limited games which would be entertaining, but not good enough to keep the user hooked-on like some of the Android games do. More games can be downloaded from the web provided storage space is available.



Lava ARC1 Plus has a 1,000mAh standard lithium-ion battery, which is at par with what most of the other devices in the same price range have to offer. The standby time is pretty good but the talk time, decent though, could have been better.



Lava ARC1 Plus has a Bluetooth facility for exchanging data with other devices wirelessly where the data exchanged may include music files, games, images and videos. The USB port also allows the user to exchange data along with charging the device itself via USB cable. GPRS connectivity along with WAP browser is used for connecting the device with the web.

Other Features

Lava ARC1 Plus when compared to Spice Boss has a smaller screen with the former featuring a 1.8-inch display and the latter 2.4 inches. Both the device have the dual-SIM facility but the camera strength in terms of pixels is more with Spice Boss with 1.3 megapixels as compared to VGA camera offered by Lava ARC1 Plus. In terms of battery strength too, Spice Boss has a 1,100mAh standard lithium-ion power back-up, which is higher in comparison to 1,000mAh offered by Lava ARC1 Plus. Spice Boss has a dedicated music key which is absent in Lava ARC1 Plus.

Other Features

30th May 2011: Lava has now been in the market for a quite some time but they have still not decided to move to a bigger segment in terms of high spec device. Lava ARC1 Plus is another low-end device that has a 1.8-inch screen and a 1,000mAh standard lithium-ion battery. The dual-SIM device has a VGA camera along with the music player and the video player to keep the users entertained.

• Has a 1.8-inch screen
• 1,000mAh standard lithium-ion battery
• Dual-SIM feature
• FM Radio + Music player +Video Player
