Lyf Wind 3 and Flame 8 Launched Exclusively on Flipkart

Reliance Jio is making waves in India even before the commercial launch, and the company is flooding the market with several smartphones in every price range under the Lyf brand. The latest ones to join the party are Lyf Wind 3 and Lyf Flame 8 smartphones. TechPP has exclusively garnered details about the phones, and they both will be Flipkart exclusives. This is the first time we are seeing Lyf going online exclusive with any of its smartphones.


Both Lyf Wind 3 and Lyf Flame 8 are budget smartphones, with Wind 3 being the slightly premier version of the two. Wind 3 comes with a 5.5-inch HD (720p) IPS LCD display with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage (with expandable storage up to 32GB). The highlight of the phone has to be the 2,920mAh battery. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 processor. The camera is 8MP on the rear and 2MP on the front, and the OS is still the age old Android 5.1 Lollipop. As you’d expect, it’s a dual SIM phone, with 4G LTE + VoLTE support, with free Reliance Jio preview offer as well.


The Lyf Flame 8 is a much more affordable option. The phone has a boxy ‘Lumia-like’ looks. It comes with a 4.5-inch FWVGA display and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor along with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 304 GPU. The storage though is restricted to 8GB with microSD support up to 128GB. There’s a 8MP rear camera, just like on Wind 3, but the front camera is bumped up to 5MP on Flame 8. The battery is 2000mAh, possibly enough to power a device like this. As you’d expect it support Reliance Jio 4G LTE and VoLTE as well.


Lyf Wind 3 will retail for Rs 6,999 and Lyf Flame 8 will cost you Rs 4,199. Neither of the phones are the best (or close to the best) in their categories. There are much better options like Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime or Coolpad Note 3 Lite or Honor Holly. But then, Lyf phones are expected to be optimized for Reliance Jio network and also come with the preview offer with 3 months of unlimited data and calls.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
