As a digital content creator, constantly interacting with technology & apps is a big part of my work. Everything from taking pictures & selfies to updating my social media is done on my phone & it’s important for me to have a phone that can keep up with all my needs.
I recently had the opportunity to test the LYF Wind 3 4G smartphone. While I am by no means a tech blogger, I thought I would share my experiences & observations after using it for a while.When I first held the LYF Wind 3 in my hand, I fell in love with the look & design. It has curved edges & a premium feel when held. It has a 5.5 inch HD (720p) LCD display – I read, check my instagram feed & even watch a lot of videos on my phone so I always prefer larger displays. The screen is made of scratch resistant Asahi glass too, so you don’t have to put an additional screen guard on.
I’m wearing: Koovs breton top // Topshop mom jeans // Daniel Wellington Classy Sheffield Lady watch // Persé Femma backpack // Vans leather sneakers & of course my LFY Wind 3 smartphone.
Coming to the next super important feature, the camera and photography. The phone has an 8-megapixel LED flash rear camera and a 2-megapixel selfie camera. The main (back) camera shoots 1080P video and the front camera is pretty wide angle which makes it great for capturing more in your selfies or taking group selfies even!
The LYF Wind 3 also comes preloaded with Reliance Jio Apps like My Jio, Jio Chat & Jio Beats which add some great additional functionalities to the phone!
These apps combined with the Jio preview 4G connection, allows you to seamlessly watch movies, videos,listen to your favourite songs –and, all content on HD.
The Jio Beats for instance, is a music app which offers HD songs in over 2o different languages. With Jio’s connection speed, you need not even download songs you don’t already have. You can just listen to your favourite music on the go.
The Jio On-demand is a video streaming service. It offers movies, TV shows, music videos and trailers. This app turns your phone into an entertainment device! It claims to have 1 lakh+ hours of HD content. I checked and found that most of the HD movies are already available!
With the preview offer of unlimited steaming for 90 days, it’s everything you could ever ask for!
And of course Android Lollipop means I can install any app that I need, via the Play Store. The Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 64-Bit Processor powered with 2GB RAM ensures that the phone never lags, even on ‘heavy’ apps.That, along with dual SIM & 4G compatibility means this phone has everything I look for in a smartphone.
After playing with the phone for a while, the most surprising thing I found was the cost – at just ₹ 6,999 the LYF Wind 3 is really affordable as well. I seriously couldn’t ask for more. You can find out more about the features etc. by checking the website & you can buy the LYF Wind 3 Smartphone online on Flipkart. x
