    Whenever you post details Reliance LYF mobile, please inform us about its actual manufaturer also. Like its is ZTE or Huwai etc.

  4. Reliance group hardware division is populated by some idiots, they have procured handsets with failed components in their handset configuration. Water 8 with SD 615, failure.. better get SD 625 into your 2016 mid range sets guys.

    1. Qualcomm SD 615 is competent enough to transform a smartphone into the iron as to serve customer demand..such a Innovation by Qualcomm..

      feel proud they are implementing such a great innovation, though better alternatives are available. Don’t call them idiots dude even if they deserve to be called so,

      Cool specs being ruined by this s#!tty processor… Same was the case with mi4i

  5. The Hardware Combination is good, but isn’t this the same processor that faced several complaints, when it comes to temperature control.
