The newly launched Coolpad Note 3 Lite, at only Rs 6,999, is now the cheapest fingerprint sensor phone in the market. It has recently got a competitor â€“ the LYF Wind 6, which is priced at Rs 6,999. So let’s check out which one offers the maximum value for the money.
The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is an exact copy of its elder sibling, albeit with smaller dimensions. It has super slim bezels on the left and right of the display, and has a copper finish metal ring around the front. It measures 140.8 x 70.4 x 89 mm and weighs 155 grams.
The LYF Wind 6 is not a phone that will attract a lot of looks. The plain black panel wraps around to the front where screen sits among average bezels. It measures 143.5 x 72.2 x 8.7 mm and tips the scales at 143 grams.
The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is definitely the better looking phone, and it has a fingerprint sensor on the back too!
