LYF brand from Reliance JIO has released a new array of smartphones LYF Wind 3 and LYF Flame 8. LyF Flame 8 and Wind 3 Launched on E-Retailer Flipkart as a move to expand rapidly beyond its Digital store and retail stores.
Reliance JIO has been selling smartphones on Flipkart and Amazon for quite some time, and slowly they will increase their presence online as well as offline.
Both the phones are currently available for sale on Flipkart and come with unlimited 4G Voice and data offer for 3 months. The Wind 3 is the price at Rs ₹6,999 while the Flame 8 is low priced 4G LTE smartphone priced at ₹4,199.
LYF Wind 3
Latest LYF 4G VOLTE Smartphone – LYF Wind 3 – The design of the smartphone looks reminiscent to OnePlus One because of its flat edges along with the curved back. There’s an 8 Mp rear camera placed at the center; just above the single LED flash.
There is LYF Branding on the back cover, and the speaker grill is also at the back side.
The LYF Wind 3 sports a larger 5.5 inch HD display (1280*720) pixels resolution with 267 ppi and off-screen navigation buttons at the chin.
The HD quality is somewhat primarily accepted in this price range, but the big 5.5-inch form factor goes better with FHD display.
It runs on dated Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset clocked at 1.2 GHz and coupled with 2 GB of RAM. Sadly the smartphone disappoints in the optics department with just 2 Megapixel front camera and an 8 Megapixel rear camera. The rear camera also supports autofocus, HDR, panorama, face detection. Both front and back cameras support 6X zoom feature.
The phone comes with 16 GB of internal storage along with expandable option to 32GB with the help of micro SD card.
The decent 2920 mAh battery is enough for a day’s usage. The phone measures at 152.6×76.6×9.4mm and weighs at 160g. Surely, not the thinnest and lightest in the market. Considering the low price of Rs. 6999 and unlimited data offers it looks like a decent proposal if you wish to use tons of data. Otherwise, there are better options in the market.
LYF Flame 8
Latest LYF 4G VOLTE Smartphone – LYF Flame 8 – The smaller LYF Flame 8 is a budget smartphone which offers decent specifications at an aggressive price point of ₹4,199.
LYF Flame 8 is a decent looking phone with a boxy and industrial design. At the back, there’s an 8 MP camera located at the top left corner along with a single LED flash. Moreover, there is branding and a speaker grill at the back side.
It sports a smaller 4.5-inch FWVGA display which is (480×854) with a pixels density of 218 ppi. Under the hood, it packs in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset paired with 1 Gb of RAM. The phone features an 8 GB inbuilt storage which is expandable up to 128 GB. Strangely, it is quite a lot in comparison to the bigger Wind 3’s 32 GB micro-sd card limit.
The phone has a dedicated micro SD slot, which is a nice touch by the company.
LYF went for 8 MP main camera but surprisingly opted for a 5 MP front snapper on Flame 8 compared to Wind 3’s 2 Mp front shooter. It runs on 2000 mAh battery capacity and the phone measures in at 132.6×66.2×9.3 mm and weighs at 138 g.
Both the phones feature the dated Android Lollipop 5.1.1 version, would have liked an early Android Marshmallow on the 4G LTE device.
Both of them being LYF phones features all three bands of Reliance Jio’s network; Band 3 which has 2800 MHz, Band 5 which has 840 MHz, Band 40 which has 2300 MHz. Along with the necessary connectivity options like 4G/LTE, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS.
Reliance is offering Jio 4G Preview. It gives the users an unlimited 4G data for three months in addition to access to Jio apps such as JioBeats, Jio OnDemand and JioMags and Jio Play. The company has also decided to extend the warranty by 12 months.
Although the phones still lack some features – an exciting design choice, fingerprint sensor, or anything to outshine Chinese counterparts, it comes with the irresistible 4G offer.
The Flame 8 will directly face competition with Intex Aqua Star, Xolo Era 4G, Xolo Era HD.
The Wind 3 is compelled to face competition from Coolpad Note 3 Lite, Lenovo Vibe P1m, Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus, Swipe Elite Plus and the new Budget Blockbuster Redmi 3S.
