Reliance JIO has launched one of the best 4G smartphones in it’s portfolio, priced under Rs. 10,000. The smartphone got launched today, without any bells and whistles. It is quietly listed on the new ajio.com website.
The MRP for the smartphone is Rs. 10,099 and it is available for purchase in 3 colors: Gold, Silver, and Black. The smartphone comes with metallic edge frame and the back cover is likely made of polycarbonate. There is no home button but there are on-screen navigation keys. The LYF branding is quite visible on the chin, and also at the back of the device.
The smartphone is powered by the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, that has 64 Bit architecture. The processor is clocked at 1.8 GHz (4 cores) and the other 4 power efficient cores are clocked at 1.4 GHz. There is Adreno 510 GPU, which is also excellent for gaming. The Snapdragon 652 is a big deal, as it offers great gaming performance and multi-tasking ability. The top-selling Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has similar processor(SD 650), which makes it one of the best performance mobiles in low price range.
The Water F1S comes with 5.2 inch display with Full HD resolution (1920*1080) pixels. The smartphone display has got Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and offers a high 423 PPI screen density.
The mobile comes with 3 GB Ram for fluid multi-tasking experience. There is 32 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to 128 GB using the micro-sd slot.
The Lyf Water F1S runs on the Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS.
On the camera front there is a 16 Mega pixel rear camera, with Auto-focus and Dual LED Flash. The rear camera comes with features like chromaflash, optizoom, multiple focus and a special Low-Light Photography mode. To our surprise the smartphone also boasts of 4K video recording, that is usually not found in budget smartphones.
There is a 5 Mega pixel front camera and the Jio has thoughtfully added a dedicated front flash, for better low light selfies. The Jio Lyf Water F1S has a decent 3000 mAH capacity battery (non-removable). It can offer all day battery life on 4G Volte network with medium to high usage.
The JIO Water F1s comes with accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, magnetometer and proximity sensor. The smartphone misses on the Fingerprint scanner which is available in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
The smartphone also has an essential USB type C port and fast charging support. Furthermore, Reliance JIO 4G offer (Happy New Year Offer) makes the deal better with unlimited voice calls and 4G data.
Though the network speed and call quality on the JIO network varies from state to state. And even within same state there can be pockets with good connectivity and areas where it is pathetic. Overall user experience so far has been sub par, as even mentioned by Reliance JIO, while extending the free JIO 4G offer till March 31st.
