The Indian telecommunications giant, Reliance has come up with its own Lyf mobiles in India to promote its new 4G and VoLTE services called Jio. These handsets have been launched by the brand in India to attract customers with unlimited calling and 4G data connection. After launching a number of handsets in the market, the brand is now moving up the price range. LYF Wind 3 is a budget smartphone by the brand that is an attempt for taking competition to the other handsets in the Indian market. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are looking for a secondary handset.
Asahi Dragontrail Glass: The handset maker has equipped this device with a larger 5.5-inch display that comes with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. This display comes protected by the Asahi Dragontrail Glass layer, which makes it less prone to shattering and scratches.
VoLTE: This handset is one of the very few in the budget segment to come with the VoLTE feature integrated. VoLTE allows users to connect with other VoLTE users instantly and also enjoy better call quality.
Snapdragon 410: This handset comes with a Snapdragon 410 processor, which is pretty impressive and does a decent job. We say this is a good thing since most budget segment smartphones come with MediaTek processor, which is not as snappy as the Snapdragon 820.
Build Quality is not quite there: While the handset is quite good for Internet browsing and performance, it is the feel of the device that is missing here. The plastic make and the flimsy build quality of the handset does not sit well with a lot of users.
