After slashing prices of its LYF-branded handsets last month, Reliance Digital has one again given a price cut to some of its smartphones. As the commercial launch of Reliance Jio is continues to get delayed, it seems like the company is finding it difficult to sell its inventory. This is especially true considering the fact that smartphones with better features are available from other manufacturers at lower prices. Now, Reliance Digital has further slashed the prices of LYF handsets by up to Rs 3,000.

One of the key highlights of these smartphones is the support for 4G LTE and VoLTE for voice calling. Reliance Jio is also banking on its content services which include JioBeats, the music streaming service, JioOnDemand, to watch movies on the go and JioPlay, the live TV streaming service. The catalogue of Reliance Jio apps also include JioDrive, a cloud storage service to backup your music, videos, documents, text messages, and JioSecurity, an antivirus app for Android smartphones.
Reliance Digital has also been bundling three months free unlimited 4G data and unlimited voice calls to the buyers as an introductory offer. While the company recently launched the introductory offer for select Samsung users, those who don t own a Samsung smartphone and want to try out Reliance Jio 4G can opt for a LYF smartphone.
We have used one of the LYF-branded smartphone while it doesn t offer too much on the performance front, it could be a good option as a secondary device, just to get the most from the introductory unlimited voice and data services.
