Lyf, the new initiative from Reliance, has been launching some impressive handsets in the Indian market over last few months. The brand is also known to offer some unbelievable deals on data and calling with Lyf mobiles. It has recently launched a couple of new devices in the market and Lyf Flame 8 is one of them. This handset is an ultra-affordable, entry level smartphone that has been designed for the price conscious buyers in the country. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking for a spare handset.
Gesture Control; This is a fancy feature to have in a device at this price point and we are not complaining. This feature allows users to perform various tasks using gestures on locked screen, which is convenient. These tasks include unlock the device, start camera, control the music player, mute incoming calls and access installed apps.
VoLTE: This is another feature that is not found in any smartphone at this price point, however, all Lyf smartphones are equipped with the same. It is probably the only smartphone that comes with this feature in this range.
Snapdragon at this price: Another highlight of the handset has to be the Sanpdragon processor that comes under the hood of this handset. The processor on this handset puts it ahead of other handsets, which come with Mediatek processors in this range.
Plastic build quality: Since, the handset has been put in the entry level, this is not something to crib about. However, the build quality of this handset feels too inexpensive and plasticky in the hand and puts off the user. This might be a deal breaker for some of the users, who are looking for a stylish device in budget.
