Last year, iNew came up with the iNew V3 smartphone which was an instant hit among customers, due to its slim design and value for money specifications. Now, the same Chinese company is back in the market with a new smartphone, called as the iNew L3. As you can see from the pictures down below, the new model does take a few design pointers from its previous generations but builds upon their design to create a much more premium and unique look.
The design of the iNew L3 is a lot different than the recent smartphones that have hit the market. Its rectangular, edgy yet beautiful at the same time. The phone is made up of metal and glass and comes with a specially design round power button like the Xperia series, making the overall design all the more elegant. You would either love the new design or hate it completely. But I personally feel iNew has done a great job with the design. There’s Corning Gorilla Glass at the back making it scratch resistant. What’s more, the phone measures just 7.1mm in thickness with no protruding components, making it truly a well designed package.
Under the hood, the iNew L3 features the power efficient MT6735 quad-core 64-bit chip which is enough for your daily usage. This coupled with Mali-T720 and 2GB of RAM should deliver decent performance. As for storage, you get 16GB of expandable memory on board. The front features a 5-inch 1280 x 720p OGS display with 70% NTSC High color saturation. With these specs, the display should be quite vibrant.
The company has even focused on the camera department of the new L3. It comes with the Sony IMX214 13MP Camera with F/2.0 aperture and 6P lens. This setup is enough to take good images with the phone, provided the company has optimized the camera software. As for the front camera, there’s a 5MP shooter.
If you are a big fan of IR ports on a smartphone, then you would be happy to hear that the iNew L3 comes with this port. You can use the IR blaster to control up to 2853 appliances at your home. Under the hood, you get a 2150mAh battery, which to be honest is a bit small compared to competitors. However, with fast charge and power efficient MT6735 chip, you can expect the phone to run for about a day easily. As for the software, the phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It comes with dual SIM dual standby. The supported 4G LTE networks include: FDD_LTE 800/ 900/ 1800/ 2100/ 2600MHz.
Finally, the iNew L3 is water repellent as well. Yes, it comes with the nano-coating from the British P2i company which makes sure that the phone is protected against water, oil and other liquids.
As you can see, the iNew L3 is really a balanced smartphone. You get decent specs, a unique design and 4G LTE at a reasonable price tag. So, what do you think about this device?
