First, we will thanks our sponsor Vifocal to offer a iNew L1 to us for testing. At first glance, we could find that iNew L1 looks similar to iNew V3, and it owns a 5.3 inch Screen; above the screen, there has the front camera、the speaker caller and the “4G lte” Logo. Meanwhile, below the screen, we could see three touch buttons—Home/Menu and Back key, and it only visible while be liting up.

When turning the phone around, we also notice that iNew L1 uses the plastic shell design, and the design is quite simple. Meanwhile, we still find the rear camera、the flashlight、the “iNew” Logo and the media speaker on the back cover, the rear camera is higher than the body. Besides, after removing the shell, we could see a large battery, above the battery, there are three card slots—two SIM card slots/one TF card slot. Overall, the appearance design of iNew L1 looks quite good.

iNew L1 Review—Display

iNew L1 is the world’s first smartphone which adopts 5.3 inch HD Sony IPS screen, and the resolution is 1280*720 pixels, so the display quality is clear, and the touch panel runs well. Otherwise, iNew L1 also owns Corning III Gorilla Glass and OGS Full Lamination techology, which could protect L1 phone from damaged.

  1. Battery

  1. Camera

As for the camera function, iNew L1 phone wouldn’t let you down. iNew L1 has equiped with 5.0MP+13.0MP Sony dual camera with flashlight and auto focus; meanwhile, it also supports face detection、smile shot and HDR. During the testing, we had taken some photos by iNew L1, just as follows:

iNew L1_035 iNew L1_034iNew L1_036 iNew L1_033


In my opinion, iNew L1 could consider as a good 4G LTE smartphone, it not only owns good spces, such as 5.3 inch HD screen/5.0MP+13.0MP dual camera, but it also supports Smart Gesture/4G LTE network, and it still has an affordable price, iNew L1 only cost $179.99 usd on Vifocal. However, it would be better if iNew L1 will adopt the Octa-core processor, and the battery capacity would a bit larger. If you want to buy an affordable 4G smartphone, iNew L1 is a good choice.
