iNew L3 review

As the new iNew L3 pierces the mobile markets with its MediaTek MT6735 processor, there’s definitely a buzz going on around owing to the sleek design and the smart features that come with it. The number of Chinese phones which have tried their hands at MT6375 phones are really scarce. Doogee and Oukitel are few of those who actually have. The iNew L3 acts as the most commendable front runner in this race. So, just sit back and skim through while you get yourselves all pumped up as we bring to you a thorough review.

As we unbox it

As we unboxed the device, it felt really sleek as well as glossy, literally glossy in touch. Now that tells a lot about its design. The first impressions which it makes with its soothing touch are really commendable to be honest. As the rumors surrounding this device went suggesting that it replicates the design of the big-hit Xiaomi Mi3 to a great extent, we were a bit dubious when it came to inferring any such conclusion. If you ask about the touch, we might nod but in the overalls, uh.. No!

The new iNew L3 comes with a Lithium-ion powered battery which in all senses steals the show with its 2150 mAh powered capacity. The support for a Universal Serial Bus data cable adds to the functional scope of the smartphone to a great extent.

Dissecting the display

Now, without beating much around the bush, the display to the new classy inew L3 knows no bounds when it comes to effectively impressing its customer with its sleek and smart design. With a sufficient 5.0 inch HD screen, the device looks really robust. However, it had a sense of fragility attached to it for most of the time while we handled it. The 5.0 inch HD IPS screen is truly remarkable and supplements the user experience with multiple benefits.

Display of iNew L3
The sleek design!

 Firstly, the High color saturation feature which the device exhibits in parallel to enabling the user to dynamically adjust the contrast, is really the highlight for the better part of its display. This magnificent device comes with a display which would function uninterruptedly even when you are in an arena with full bright colors, say somewhere with an excessive amount of sunlight. As per us, this device is truly a beast when it comes to presenting a user-friendly display! From the snap below, you can clearly take a hint on as to how sleek  the sides of this device are. For average user, these might seem a bit to hefty but trust us, these are definitely a plus.

Top-notch Design
The sleek side!

Moving on to the core features, the phone comes with the Android 5.0 operating  systems integrated within it. The CPU processor in-built is the Media Tek’s 6735 processor. The processor is powerful in the  sense that it is quadcore and is 64-bit. Moreover, the Mali-T720 GPU does a decent job rendering the graphics formulated in the device a bit more significant but we are still highly skeptical of the performance of its GPU under heavy load. So yeah, you can take that as a downside!

Diving into the specifics!

Encompassing the storage and other facilities on the side

Moving onto the storage, the device seems just okay with its support for 2 gigabytes of RAM and 16 gigabytes for ROM. The device embraces a whole lot of networks welcoming support for the  GSM as well as WCDMA. Moreover, the support for FDD as well as LTE is also well within the functional scope defined for iNew L3. Also, the phone has a support for Dual SIM cards which provide dual standby as well as dual support for the 4G network. The 4G download speed can stand at as much as 150 Mbps where as the upload speed at around 50 Mbps.

Connection specifics

Coming with  a built-in GPS, this device hits home when it comes to reviewing the device based on the connection specifications. Don’t get satisfied just yet with the iNew L3 review we are presenting to you. The new iNew L3 powers Bluetooth 4.0 with EDR/Wi-Fi with a IEEE 802.11 b/g/n support. Moreover, the device has a support for the Micro USB 2.0 hotspot support.

User interface
The exhilarating UI

About the camera – well, it says a lot!

The iNew L3 has a support for a 13 Megapixel camera at its rear where as for a 5 Megapixels camera at its front. This is too nominal for any smartphone in this range these days. This is just the fundamental requirement which they are satisfying. We don’t think that this section of the blog has anything extra-ordinary attached to it when it comes to the camera features. The video recording on the other hand can be done in AVI, MP4, FLV, 3GP, MOV as well as several other formats.

The device has a SONY IMX214 13MP camera with the F/2.0 aperture as well as the 6P lens. The camera software is optimized to the core thus, enhancing the quality of the camera as can be seen in the forthcoming section of the camera samples.

Check out the camera samples for yourselves. There is not glare and the clarity exhibited by the devices camera isn’t blemished by any unnecessary reflection. The sample with the background of a garden shows how clear and how good the camera is, quality-wise. The 13 MP rear camera definitely boasts of the device’s supremacy.

Specs by the side!

The gravitas associated with this smartphone is enhanced greatly when it comes to listing down the specs by the side. Available in the white and black colors, the phone is bound to garner a large consumer base, white and black being the most standard ones out there. In addition to this, the digital compass integrated within this device as well as the Gravity sensor together with the Distance and the Light sensor ensure the multi-functional prospect of this device in the long term.

With a tethering and a portable hotspot as well as support for the GPS, this device is also instilled with the gesture control functionality.

UI is good!
A friendly UI!

Finally, as we operate it!

Moving further with the iNew L3 review, finally, as we operate this device, we must say that it has both upsides as well as downsides associated with it. The keypad seems too much sensitive at times and at different times, too little sensitive. Moreover, the ease at typing isn’t something which you would presumably feel while operating this device.

We won’t hesitate in confessing that the User interface associated with the new iNew L3 is appalling by all means and the customization done to the screens as well as to the applications is definitely a win-win for the makers of this phone. However, the phone has some shortcomings too not in the sense that the functionalities it offers are buggy but int the sense that it doesn’t offer anything EXTRA!

Is it User friendly?

FINAL VERDICT!

Finally, we would be outlining the fundamental points of analysis for you in order to assist you in making a wise decision. So, have a look:

  • Build Quality: 8 out of 10
  • Appearance: 7 out of 10
  • Button placement: 8 out of 10
  • Interface experience: 9 out of 10
  • Display quality: 8 out of 10
  • Price/performance ratio: 7 out of 10
  • Camera performance: 7 out of 10
  • Battery performance: 9 out of 10

So as per our iNew L3 review, this phone is good, really good. But is it a best buy? Well, now that’s a slippery slope!

  1. The camera is supposed to have OIS and 6P lens, so a proper look would have been helpful.

    1. i think some moron is reviewing these promising phones !

      they rate camera dept BUT DONT REVIEW IT AT ALL ! wth ?!

      1. Unfortunately neither Andi or Linus have plans to review it, which is a shame and a bit bizarre.. only the proper sequel to one of the most popular phones of 2014. So far one decent video review doesn’t test camera far enough, but low light very promising (night terrible as always). Ulefone Paris also looks good, solid 13mp OV, but again no real test so far of fast f/1.8 claim.

          1. and people reviewing the L3 , so far … are UTTER MORONS !
            they are not reviewing the OIS , the Six P lenses OR the blue glass filter in the cam … AT ALL !
