We’ve been seeing a steady flow of Lyf smartphones from Reliance Retail, catering to nearly every entry-level and mid-range price point. As an incentive to buy these phones over the competition, they are being bundled with Jio SIM cards. This gives buyers free access to LTE data and Jio’s suite of streaming services, which you can now enjoy without paying a dime time till March 2017.

Lyf F1 Summary

The Lyf F1 is a mainstream smartphone priced at Rs. 13,399. It features a 5.5-inch full-HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection. Brightness is good and colours are vibrant, making for sharp text. The phone is slim and light too due to the plastic body but is put together well. The F1 supports Dual-SIM functionality with a separate slot for the microSD card. App performance is generally good thanks to the octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC and 3GB of RAM. The phone doesn’t overheat but does get warm depending on the activity being performed. The F1 also runs on a near-stock version of Android Marshmallow with the suite of Jio apps and some gesture based customisations to the OS. The rear 16-megapixel camera and front 8-megapixel camera perform well in daylight but struggle with focus and colour noise in low-light shots. Battery life is pretty good too. Overall, barring a few niggles, the Lfy F1 is worth considering if you’re looking to jump onto the Jio bandwagon.

  • Awesome phone within 10k
    Inderjit Kumar (Jan 3, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    This is the best phone guys. I also was septical before buying this phone. But once I bought the phone, all my apprehensions were put to rest. It sports the best camera and the best selfie camera in its range. It also has one of the best RAM and Internal Memory. Not to mention the Corning Gorilla Display, Snapdragon Processor, 2 years warranty, etc, etc..I would give a 5 out of 5 to Lyf F1 for bringing such a wonderful phone in the market..

  • Good product from jio but make a note.
    sathish shankar (Mar 24, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    If u buy this mobile please disable the auto update apps from play store. Because if u turn it on, it will make your phone slower, drain battery faster, and drains your internet. So please try that. If this problem is not there, it would be a very good product. I'm giving 4 stars because battery is not good. In spite of disabling auto update, it was draining more power. Only this drawback makes irritation. Performance and camera is very good.
