lyf f1 review feature

Reliance Lyf smartphones are out in the market targeting the entry-level smartphone buyers. The brand has evolved long way and is now standing the midrange price competition. LYF F1 is a notable offering from the manufacturer to serve the best of Reliance. Adding to this, Reliance is proving a Jio SIM card for free for its buyers.

The offer includes free unlimited access to LTE data and Jio streaming services. This free subscription lasts until coming March. Apart from this offer, the device itself packs some impressive specs which grab the buyer’s attention in the best price fit. Let dig into the LYF F1 review and get to know what this package offers in contrast to its opponents.

Design:

LYF F1 is a quite slim phone with a thickness of 7.9mm. Built with plastic frame, you don’t feel the phone very hefty. The looks and finish of the phone are good even after the maker choosing plastic over metal. The design offers a perfect grip, and you find the great in-hand experience. The pockmark texture on the rear keeps the phone unique from a regular look.

It’s a typical slab on the front without any physical keys or sensors. The power button and volume functioning keys are adjusted on the right edge. On the left, 2 SIM trays have been provided one with micro SD slot along with it. Bottom edge houses a Micro-USB charging port, and a 3.5mm audio jack is positioned on the top.

On the rear, you find a rear camera on the top left corner without any bump. Audio out speaker makes its presence on the lower back side of the panel itself. Overall the design of the smartphone is good and is easy to carry with 155.50mm height and 77.60 width.

Display:

LYF F1 features a 5.5-inch full-HD display with 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels resolution at 400 pixels per inch.  The Corning Gorilla Glass protection on the top resists scratches up to a far extent. The smartphone offers a good display with great experience of viewing a 5.5-inch phone. Display performs well with good brightness and does offer high-quality viewing experience.

Properties are keen, and images are punchier in the gamut. You don’t find any complaints with the color reproduction as well. Touch sensibility is also good, which users doubt about in an LYF brand. Viewing angles are good, and readability in sunlight is also manageable in its range.

Performance:

LYF F1 is powered by an -core Snapdragon 617 SoC processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The combo offers a good performance without any major issues. The phone performs all the regular activities with ease, and you won’t find any hiccups even while multitasking. The specs and Marshmallow UI helps the performance and multitasking go smooth.

The phone offers its best even while gaming. You may find LYF F1 a bit warming up while playing heavy games like Asphalt 8. Audio quality in the device is good when a headset is plugged in or even directly from the audio out speaker. The smartphone does a decent job at media playback too. However, the heating issue doesn’t affect the phone’s performance. LYF F1 scored 47,562 points in AnTuTu benchmark, 5390 in 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme benchmark and 17fps in GFXbench.

The smartphone runs on stock version Android Marshmallow 6.0.1with customized UI on top. Reliance bundles the Jio suite of apps along with the LYF F1 which include JioMoney, Jio Play, etc. You need to create an account for using apps. LYF Care keeps you informed about nearby service centers, manage Jio’s services and call a helpline. The Smart Tray app provides a shortcut of 15 apps if you swipe it diagonally from the bottom corners of the screen.

You can alter incoming call based on the gestures like flip to mute, or based on ambient sound. The video player lets you load two videos side-by-side and play them simultaneously. Smart Play feature will pause videos when you’re head is off the screen. This employs front camera to track the head movement and pause the video if you tilt you head to one side. There are few other pre-installed apps in the range which include Yatra, BeautyPlus Me, and Amazon.

Camera:

Camera Department of LYF F1 packs a 16-megapixel primary camera with PDAF support. Pictures are fair bit and detail with vibrant colors in normal daylight. The sensor fails to produce details of the objects which are a bit far away. Autofocus speeds are brilliant even when moving from one subject to another. Low-light shots are not up to the mark, and you find some color noise when in dark areas. Provided flash also failed to assist when in the dark.

LYF F1 is equipped with another 8MP front camera which fares well. Focusing speeds stepped down under poor lighting conditions which result in tougher taking a selfie. The camera app is designed to perform functions with ease along with some advanced shooting options like Refocus, Chroma Flash, Multiple Focus, Opti Zoom and Low Light photo.

Video recording in LYF F1 maxes out at 1080p resolution with high quality in daylight. It also allows you to select between 90fps and 120fps on a high framerate mode by decreasing the resolution to 480p. In addition to that, the 120fps mode is replicated and doesn’t work well in real time. The video stabilization feature helps a bit.

Battery:

LYF F1 is equipped with 3200mAh battery which will be a perfect mate for specs provided. It ran about 10 hours and 57 min in HD video loop test. The battery runs more than a day on a moderate usage and ensures a stand by that you don’t need to charge over a weekend. It does charges quickly with the adapter bundled with it. You can attain up to 45 percent of battery charge in an hour. It can gain back full charge just in a couple of hours.

Pros:

  • Display is sharp
  • Jio App package
  • Performance
  • Battery Life

Cons:

  • Plastic built quality
  • No fingerprint scanner
  • Camera not up to the mark

Verdict:

LYF F1 is a brilliant smartphone offering from Reliance retail to get the maximum out of Jio. Coming to the handset, it is more or less than the regular mid-range smartphone in the price bracket. But it is a decent smartphone with a price of Rs.13,999 in India available at Reliance Digital stores.
The only few notable areas where phone lacks a bit are plastic built quality and fingerprint sensor. Despite these, it does well in many aspects. If you are willing for not comparing with other smartphones, LYF F1 is for you with Jio Wagon.
