LYF, a sub-brand of Reliance, a leading Indian Telecom operator made its way into the competitive technology market with an entry-level smartphone called the Wind 7 in August. Sequel to its success, the company has proceeded to come up with a cheaper version of the Wind 7, dubbed the Lyf Wind 7i. The LYF WIND 7i is a smartphone tag-lined as \u2018\u2019Jumpstart your life\u2019\u2019; this device comes with a 24-month extended warranty like most of the smartphones from LYF.\n\nThe LYF Wind 7i has 4G Voice over LTE and supports dual-SIM, it has a 5-inch HD display and it is powered by a Snapdragon 210 processor similar to the Wind 7. However, unlike the Wind 7 which has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, the Wind 7i has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage; from all indications, LYF decided to downgrade a little bit in order to have a smartphone that will compete with other budget smartphones.\n\nReliance LYF Wind 7i Specifications, Review and Highlights\n\n\n\nThe Reliance LYF Wind 7i packs a 5-inch HD (1280 * 720 pixels) IPS (294 PPI) display and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909) processor with Adreno 304 GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage which can be increased to 128GB using a microSD card.\n\nThe LYF Wind 7i is a dual-SIM phone which runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and supports 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b\/g\/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS for connectivity.\n\nThe smartphone sports an 8MP PDAF camera with LED Flash at the rear, and the front camera has a 5MP sensor that comes with HDR mode.
