The main USP of this Pixel V1 Android one smartphone is the software update and 32GB internal storage.

The SoC is bit outdated as this is released in 2013 considering 2014 and 2015 processors offered by Lenovo, Xiaomi etc. Lava Pixel V1 has 2600 mAh battery.
Lava Pixel V1 is much better feature rich smartphone compared to last gen Android one smartphones such as Micromax Canvas A1, Spice Dream Uno and Karbonn Sparkle V. However, it is very interesting see how this smartphone will compete with other smartphone with other smartphone with similar or lesser price but much more feature rich smartphones such as Lenovo K3 Note, Yu Yureka Plus etc. By looking at the specification sheet, the visible disadvantages of Lava Pixel V1 are, no 4G connectivity, Only 720p resolution for 5.5 inch screen and mediocre Soc.
