With technology in communications growing in leaps and bounds, we are now spoilt for choice when it comes to gadgets. I remember the days when owning a mobile phone was an extravagant affair- with low quality user interface and exorbitant costs. Times have changed and today, we expect sophisticated technology, at pocket friendly prices.
Reliance Communications has been at the helm of this mobile revolution in India, so when they announced the Lyf Smartphone+ phone, I decided to try them out for myself.


The brand offers VOLTE 4G smartphone that they have categorised as per the 4 elements of life –Earth, Water, Wind & Flame. Each category consists of many handsets designed keeping in mind the colour palette and the look of the phone with reference to these elements.
I picked the category that suits my aura best – FLAME. FLAME 8 being the latest addition to the ‘Flame’ family, that’s what we are talking about in this article.

The mobile phone is light weight, edgy in appearance with a smooth finish around the corners and is quite sturdy. The glossy black back and a glass coating in the front makes it look stylish and sophisticated.
The phone has an 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras. You can even play around with ISO levels, in-built filters, Face Detection feature, and custom settings to take vibrant shots on the go. This is great for someone like me, as I move around frequently, and we’re constantly chasing good lighting. For a phone priced under the 10k range, FLAME 8 definitely stands out as a winner.


This gadget has a comfortable grip, and comes with a bright 11.43 screen with vibrant colour display, offering great video viewing and gaming experience on the move.


The FLAME 8 comes with in-built JIO APPS that take care of all your needs in terms of movies, music, cashless transfer, and other basic needs. The ones that I found super useful were Jio Chat, Jio Beats, Jio Money, My Jio, Jio On-Demand, Jio Play.
The best part though, is the Jio preview offer which makes these apps all the more useful. Reliance is offering 90 days of unlimited calls, texts, and internet streaming as part of this offer, which means all the more movies, music, and sitcoms to check out on these apps – all on the go!


With over 1.5 million Jio users currently, I am assured that keeping up with latest entertainment and fastest internet usage network, LYF FLAME 8 stands out as a winner amongst mobile phones of its range; in the market. Not only is the phone stylish in looks, but its highly useful interface definitely promises an intelligent usage experience. If you are looking for a mobile phone which is pocket friendly, doesn’t compromise on its HD and camera quality, easy to access with simplified and modified APP collection; then LYF FLAME 8 is the one for you!

The mobile phone is available on Flipkart.
