Though the offer can be redeemed when the consumer gets an LYF smartphone along with the free Jio SIM. In case you are looking get a new LYF device, the Flame 1 and Flame 2 are the entry-level devices priced around Rs. 6,000 price range.[Latest Price of Water 5 – [amazon_link asins=’B01IKMBNSC’ template=’PriceLink’ store=’prblog02-21′ marketplace=’IN’ link_id=’54794f7a-d956-11e6-aa77-4bf5da42ef9a’]]

But the devices lack the power to compete against the likes of other devices at this price range. The newly launched LYF Water 5 priced at Rs. 11,699 might be a better deal considering the specifications it offers.
