Reliance Digital LYF Flame 7 features
The smartphone comes with support for 10 Indian languages, including Marathi, Hindi and Gujarati among others – allowing you to type, chat and save contacts in your preferred language. The company has also included a pop-up video player, which allows you to text or browse the internet while watching your favorite videos uninterrupted while doing other tasks. Having said that, it remains to be seen whether the low-power Spreadtrum processor would be able to handle the feature.
Back in June, Reliance Digital had launched the LYF Flame 5 for Rs 3,999, but with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, it fell short in front of competition. Now, with the Flame 7, the company has not only doubled the amount of RAM and onboard storage, but has also cut down the price, making it cheaper by Rs 500.
The Flame 7 will take on the likes of Intex Cloud Fame, Phicomm Clue 630 and Micromax Canvas Spark 2 Plus all of which are priced at Rs 3,999 and sport slightly better specifications, such as higher battery capacity, 5-inch display and Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS on some smartphones. Still, one key takeaway with Flame 7 is the Jio Preview offer where you get unlimited high speed 4G internet access, unlimited and HD voice calling and an unlimited access to Jio suite of apps for watching live TV, listening to music, watching on demand movies and more.
