Price

Even though its regular price is Rs 6,999, during the initial festive season, customers will be able to get Asus Zenfone Lite L1 at a discounted price of Rs 5,999. The entry-level variant of Xiaomi s Redmi 6A, which has identical RAM and internal storage as Asus offering, is also priced at Rs 5,999. In comparison, Realme C1 is a little expensive, having a price tag of Rs 6,999.

Design and display

Asus Zenfone Lite L1 features a plastic construction, albeit with a metallic finish. Xiaomi Redmi 6A and Realme C1 aren t any different either, with both being made from plastic. All three smartphones look decent for the price, though none of them is a head-turner. Thanks to extra-tall displays, they are quite compact for easy one-handed usage.

Speaking of displays, Asus Zenfone Lite L1 features a 5.45-inch HD+ panel, with a resolution of 720×1440 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. That s exactly the same as Xiaomi Redmi 6A s panel. On the other hand, Realme C1 features a larger 6.2-inch display, complete with a notch and a 19:9 aspect ratio. That said, the C1 s screen is still HD+, maxing out at 720×1520 pixels.

Basic hardware and software

Powering the Zenfone Lite L1 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC, comprised of an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. It s paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, with a dedicated expansion slot that can take up microSD cards of up to 256GB. In comparison, Xiaomi Redmi 6A features MediaTek s Helio A22 SoC, which has a quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. It s complemented by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of RAM, with a separate expansion slot that supports microSD cards of up to 256GB. Lastly, Realme C1 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, with an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. With that, you get 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and there s a dedicated expansion slot that can take up microSD cards of up to 256GB.

While it s easy to see that all three smartphones share similar hardware, Xioami s Redmi 6A clearly has the edge here, with its (potentially) more efficient 12nm SoC. It s followed by Realme C1, which has a 14nm chipset, whereas Asus Zenfone Lite L1, with its dated 28nm SoC, comes in at number three.

Coming to software, all three smartphones run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, with each having its own custom UI overlay baked on top.

Cameras

For imaging, Asus Zenfone Lite L1 features a single 13-megapixel (f/2.0) camera, which is similar to Xiaomi Redmi 6A s 13-megapixel (f/2.2) primary shooter. However, they are both left behind (at least, on paper) by Realme C1 s dual rear camera setup, comprised of a 13-megapixel (f/2.2) sensor and a 2-megapixel (f/2.4) depth sensor.

As far as the front-facing cameras are concerned, the Zenfone Lite L1 features a 5-megapixel selfie snapper with LED flash. Xiaomi s Redmi 6A also has a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, but sans LED flash. Lastly, Realme C1 has a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper as well, but no LED flash.

Battery

Asus Zenfone Lite L1 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, which seems more than adequate, given the smartphone s mediocre hardware. Xiaomi Redmi 6A also has a 3,000mAh battery powering its entry-level innards. However, Realme C1 clearly edges out the two in this department, with a 4,230mAh battery rounding off its spec sheet.
