Lava Blaze Curve 5G review: How powerful is this Lava phone compared to Chinese smartphones?


Lava Blaze Curve 5G review

Lava Blaze Curve 5G: About some years ago, when Chinese companies did not dominate the smartphone market in India, Lava, Karbonn, and Micromax were ruling the roost together. Times changed, and the storm of brands like Xiaomi and Vivo pushed Indian brands out of competition. However, now Lava is making a comeback.

    This time, the challenge is from Chinese companies that offer similar or better technology at lower prices, and Lava is handling this pressure consistently. After the launch of Lava Agni 5G, we have reached the launch of Lava Blaze Curve 5G.

    The smartphone aims to incorporate every feature desired by users in the under 20,000 INR category. The starting price for Lava Blaze Curve 5G is 18000 INR. The company has sent us the IRON Glass color variant for review. Let's find out how the new Lava phone with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage performs in initial use, as we explore the first impressions.

    Lava Blaze Curve 5G doesn't lack in any particular aspect. It is as solid as it is beautiful. The company has put effort into the design of the phone. The back panel features a tough glass with a matte finish, using Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for durability.

    Lava claims that the phone can withstand falls and avoid breakage. The branding of Lava 5G is at the bottom of the back. At the top, there is a triple circular camera bump, housing the rear cameras, with a separate LED flash.

    The IRON Glass color variant gives a premium feel and resembles the Vivo X50 Pro, launched around two and a half years ago in the 50,000 INR range. Even after 4 to 5 days of use without a TPU case, there were no fingerprint marks on the back of Lava Blaze Curve 5G.

    On the right side of the phone, there are the power button and volume rocker, while the left side is empty. At the bottom, there is a Type-C port, SIM tray, and microphone. The top and bottom have stereo speakers, delivering loud and crisp sound with Dolby Atmos support. However, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack in Blaze Curve 5G. To compensate for this absence, a USB Type-C connector is provided. The box includes a 33W charger, a USB Type-C data cable, a SIM ejector tool, and a TPU cover.

    Lava Blaze Curve 5G features

    A 6.67-inch Full HD+ display with a punch-hole design. It is a curved, or rather, a curved AMOLED display, providing a bezel-less look from the front. The display has a resolution of 1080x2400 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate, offering smooth visuals. The peak brightness of 800 nits seemed average to me. Colors were vibrant indoors, and I had no issues reading e-books or watching YouTube videos. The display's shine was slightly reduced in bright sunlight. Although it supports Widevine L1 certification, enhancing the experience of watching content on platforms like Netflix, a detailed assessment will be made in the full review.


    Lava Blaze Curve 5G is equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor. This processor has been seen in smartphones from Realme, Oppo, and other Lava devices, showcasing decent performance. The phone comes with 8GB of RAM, expandable up to 8GB. The performance in initial use impressed me as it handled social media browsing, content streaming, and light gaming quite smoothly. However, a more detailed discussion on performance will be covered in the full review.

    The camera setup on Lava Blaze Curve 5G includes a triple rear camera setup. The main camera is 64MP, featuring a Sony sensor. Additionally, there is an 8MP wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro camera. The main rear camera supports 20X optical zoom. On the front, there is a 32MP selfie camera. The initial photos taken with Blaze Curve 5G seemed average to me. Some selfies were decent. The camera app offers various modes such as beauty, portrait, and macro. A detailed review will delve into the camera performance in each mode. The phone can record videos up to 4K at 30fps, and its video recording capabilities will be further evaluated.


    Lava Blaze Curve 5G houses a 5000mAh battery, accompanied by a 33W charger in the box. Lava claims that the battery can be fully charged in 80 minutes and reach 50% charge in 30 minutes. In average use, the battery lasted a day, but a thorough evaluation of performance and charging time will be discussed in the review.

    Final Thought 

    Some noteworthy aspects that impressed me in the first impressions include the in-display fingerprint sensor, which quickly unlocks the device. Secondly, the phone runs on Android 13, providing a pure Android experience without any additional UI layer, avoiding unnecessary apps and bloatware.
