Lava has made a splashing comeback in the mid-range segment with the Agni 5G after being absent from the Indian smartphone industry for quite some time now. With Agni 5G, Lava has taken the tried and tested approach of value-for-money smartphones. The Lava Agni 5G comes with some impressive specs for its asking price. It gets Mediatek’s latest Dimensity 810 chipset bringing 5G capabilities. Further, it has a 6.78-inch FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz, a 5,000mAH battery with 30W fast charging, and a 64MP quad rear camera setup just for Rs 19,999.
Lava Agni 5G packs quite a punch under the hood. However, things could get tricky in the software department as you’d need a good software experience to take advantage of the power to its full extent. The smartphone does run on Android 11, but we haven’t experienced it so far. So far, smartphones from Indian brands don’t have a very good reputation with the software, so it’s hard for us to comment if the Agni 5G is any different or not. Further, we also don’t know the situation of software updates with the Agni 5G. Yes, we would be looking out for the signs of bloatware, but it would be great if Lava could do what Micromax is doing with its In series smartphones – a clean and stock software experience.
