Buoyed by the success of smartphones like G1 and A1, CENTRiC, an Indian Telecom brand, introduced its CENTRiC L3 in India. The smartphone offers exceptional specs and delivers best in class mobility experience to its users for a very competitive price of Rs. 6,741.

The CENTRiC L3 is a game changer and augurs to the company’s strategy of giving powerful hardware at an aggressive price. Let’s enumerate 5 reasons for why this 4G VoLTE enabled holistic entertainment device should be your choice over phones like Redmi 5A and 10.or D.

Here are 6 Stand-Out Features of CENTRiC L3

Design and Build

You will hardly find a budget smartphone that looks premium as well as solid. The CENTRiC L3 is once such exception. The handset offers the perfect blend of style and class. It is encased in a plastic body design that protects the phone from humidity, dust and is extremely durable.

Stressing more about the design, CENTRiC L3 has a sleek removable back cover that is tapered towards the edges. The phone has beautifully rounded corners and a 2.5D Glass up front that further adds to its overall appeal. The power button, placed along with Volume rockers on the right side, has got the textured finish that makes it easier to differentiate.

All in all, it is a neat and good-looking smartphone available at an unbelievable price.


You couldn’t have asked for more from CENTRiC L3’s display, especially in this budget. The 5-inch HD (1280 × 720) IPS Oncell display is sharp and vivid, has good viewing angles and is bright enough to be viewed on any lighting conditions.

With high contrast and colors that pop, it’s an excellent display for consuming multimedia content. It’s further protected by a 2.5D glass that makes it appealing.

Camera Performance

The CENTRiC L3 also surprised us with its camera performance. We didn’t go in expecting much from the camera, but the 13MP rear camera and the 5MP selfie camera on the phone are excellent performers and can give even phones that cost twice as much a run for their money.

In both outdoor and indoor lighting, the camera can capture ample details, shows accurate metering and the software is quite deft at eliminating noise.

Fingerprint Sensor

To customer delight, the CENTRiC L3 comes with a fingerprint reader. Now, not all entry-level smartphones in the Indian market have that feature, but CENTRiC doesn’t compromise in this regard. The fingerprint sensor on L3 is extremely fast, super reliable, and conveniently accessible on the front.

This is a great way of keeping your data like files, photos, folders and other important documents safe from intruders.


The battery on CENTRiC L3 can comfortably last for more than a day. The smartphone packs a 3050mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery with excellent standby time. On a full charge, we could consistently make it to the end of our day with around 30 to 40 percent juice remaining.

The company also bundles a good-quality charger that charges the phone very fast (in less than 2 hours).

Dedicated SD Card

The CENTRiC L3 has a dedicated microSD card slot. This comes at a time when most OEMs favor Hybrid-sim slot rather than a dedicated one on affordable phones and consumers who like to use both dual SIM and SD card, at the same time, are left stranded.

CENTRiC understands it well and allow users to add a microSD to expand CENTRiC L3’s 16GB storage up to 256GB while simultaneously using both sim-cards slot.

Reasons to Buy CENTRiC L3

These are the 5 features we were particularly fond of in CENTRiC L3. Other than this the phone rocks 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor mated with 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage. The software running on the phone is Android 7.0 Nougat. For photography, the CENTRiC L3 relies on 13MP rear camera with LED flash and 5MP front camera.

Affordable phone experience often entails one or the other compromises, but the CENTRiC L3 covers all basics and is quite capable of delivering a consistent and complete experience.
