Asus recently launched two smartphones in India, the ZenFone Max M1 and the ZenFone Lite L1. These smartphones are both priced under Rs. 9,000 and are aimed squarely at the Xiaomi Redmi 6 (Review) and the Redmi 6A (Review) respectively. We have already reviewed the ZenFone Max M1, and while its performance suffered due to an ageing processor, it did offer good battery life. The ZenFone Lite L1 has the same processor but loses a few other features and is priced more aggressively at Rs. 6,999, with an even lower temporary festive offer price of Rs. 5,999. Is the ZenFone Lite L1 a good bargain at either of those prices? We take it for a spin to find out.

  • WoWsome
    TechnoLoon (May 20, 2019) on Amazon
    It's really worthy for the price. Got it for ₹4850 during offer period. Each and every aspect of the phone is good. Snapdragon 430 octa core processor makes the phone really snappy.All other phones at this price offers Mediatek quad core CPUs. The performance difference between the closest competitor Redmi 6A with a quad core Mediatek Helio A22 and this phone is very evident. Also Redmi 6A costs around ₹1000 more than this one.Playing asphalt 9 on the weak mediatek processor on Redmi 6A is like watching a slideshow even in low settings. But the Lite L1 handles it with ease. Pubg is also smooth on this phone than 6A at lowest setting.The Lite L1 has a great display, it's light weight and easy to handle. The camera quality is good for the price. Battery easily lasts for a day with moderate usage. The build quality is also very good. It's back panel is made of hard plastic with a smooth finish. Coming to security, it has camera based face unlock feature. It works well even on moderately low light indoor conditions. But on very dark conditions, it won't.It's the best choice for anyone who wants to use smartphone for social media and web browsing and even some serious gaming without breaking the bank.Overall it's a WoWsome phone at this price and it would be difficult to find another phone at this price point with an octa core processor and such great performance.
