Sometimes we open a web page in Opera Mini or Opera Mobile Browser and we are unable to view some fonts. They appear like small squares. This is due to the absence of that font in your phone. You cannot install fonts in your android phone without rooting it. If you don’t want to root your phone and still want to view Punjabi, Hindi and other fonts in Opera Mini Browser you can do the following steps. With the help of this tutorial you will be able to view Punjabi, Hindi and other fonts while browsing Facebook, Twitter and other websites (through Opera Mini)
1. Open Opera Mini Browser in your phone.
2. Type about:config in the address bar (where Enter Address is written) and open it. Just like you open any other website by entering its address.
3.Power User Settings will be opened. Various options will be listed here.
4. Scroll down to settings called use bitmap fonts for complex scripts. Default value is set to ‘No’ here. Change it to Yes and click on Save below.
5.Done. Now open Facebook or any other website, you will be able to view Punjabi, Hindi or other fonts on the page.

Design and Looks : Looks are not that great, as the phone is bulky (10.6 mm at width). Weight is 135 grams approx. But it is good for a budget phone. Build quality is average. A minor fall in my case, left 1/3rd of display ‘black’ on 2nd day of usage. Got it replaced for Rs 1800
Display : Tft Display has average viewing angles, brightness and color production. The display is of 480 x 800 resolution (233 ppi). Pixels are visible if you look close.
Storage : Out of 4 gb internal memory, 2.5 gb is available to the user. (1 gb of which is allocated to install apps). Out of the 1 gb ram only 924 mb ram is available. Free Ram on first boot is about 400 mb. Apps cannot be moved to external storage.
Performance : The interface of the phone is smooth. Navigating through menus is lag free. There is minor stutter sometimes while opening gallery etc. but its not a deal breaker. Lava has promised kitkat update for this one (mentioned on the box) which will make the phone a bit more fast.
Sound : The audio quality is good and loud.
Benchmarks : Running Antutu Benchmark gives a score of 16596 which is good score considering the budget.
Camera : Camera Quality is good for a budget phone. The shots in daylight are good. But indoors the shots turns out to be grainy (as with most phones). The led flash isn’t that great when taking night shots. Phone supports HDR, Panorama, Continuous Shot etc. Video recording is in 720p resolution and is of ok quality. Front camera is bad.
(Indoor in lights)
Gaming : The phone is good at gaming. I played Temple Run Oz on high settings, the gameplay was smooth and lag free. The box mentions the gpu as ‘Adreno 302’, but actually it is ‘Adreno 305’
Battery :Battery life of the phone is average (1700 mah). Specially if the screen brightness is set anywhere from mid level to high, the battery drains quite fast. You can expect 8-10 hours on medium usage.
Other Features : USB On The Go is not supported. There are accelerometer, proximity and light sensors. It supports 2 normal sims. There is a microsd slot as well.
Conclusion : Lava Iris 406q is a good phone performance wise. But i am not impressed with its looks and build quality. Phone with similar or better features are now available in this budget. Like Xolo Q600s, Moto E and Micromax Unite 2. Micromax Unite 2 definitely looks better bet then this.
