Features of Reliance JioPhone :
Not only in India but in the feature phone market of the world, any service provider has not provided such facilities in the free till date. After the launch of this phone, it is being said that Steve Jobs, who took the iPhone off the iPhone and done it for the rich in America, gave Mukesh Ambani free of cost to the poor for the poor. There is no doubt that Jio’s 4G feature phone is a revolutionary step in the field of communication technology.
In his declaration, Mukesh Ambani himself said, “This phone will set a new record in the world.” You can easily connect it with your TV set. It will run on the VoLTE network In this JioTV and jio Cinema apps will be pre-installed.

This feature of Jio will work as ‘Apple Pay’ and ‘Samsung Pay’. Users will be able to link their bank accounts, public money accounts, user accounts and debit / credit cards.

Mukesh Ambani said, the amount of data that is spent on the second network by spending 4-5 thousand rupees per month, will give as much data on the recharge of Rs 153 per month. It is being claimed that this feature phone of jio will cover 99 per cent of Indian population within a year. Through this, India will become the world’s largest spending consumer.
Even in the feature phone segment in India, the Chinese companies were still in touch. Which are expected to end. jio has given a tough challenge to Indian brand Intex, Lava and Micromax by offering a feature phone in free. None of these companies have so far given so many features in the feature phone.
Lacks in JioPhone Features :
During its launch it was not announced whether this phone has been given Wi-Fi support or Wi-Fi hotspot . This phone, which is likely to run on Jio 4G SIM, will use the SIM card for data usage and it will not work on Wi-Fi.
The JioPhone that Reliance has introduced, it has not been given the world’s most popular chat platform, WhatsApp for instant messaging-chatting. Although the Facebook app has been given in the phone but WhatsApp does not exist here. It is being said that the possibility may be that Reliance Jio propagate its own JioChat app through this phone because if the company’s eye is on 500 million basic phone users in the country then this app will go famous in so many people.
With the launch of Reliance JioPhone, its features were revealed, but there is still a mystery about its camera. In fact, the slide that was played on the stage during the announcement of Reliance JioPhone, the camera icon was at the bottom on the left and possibly there was something written about it. But on the right camera specification, a live demo video of Akash-Isha Ambani was played on top of that slide, from which this information was hidden and after that there was no disclosure of the phone’s camera. Whether the front camera was given or not in the phone, could not be found.
Now that there is a big question about Wi-Fi connectivity in the phone, it is also very difficult to say whether the phone company’s hotspot device will support JioFi. Because JioFi only operates on the devices in which Wi-Fi connectivity is given. In the absence of this, it will not be able to use JioFi’s data.
About this unique and free phone battery which has become the biggest headache for users in today’s time, no updates have been issued by the company at this time. The company did not make any announcement about how much battery capacity is in the phone and whether it supports fast charging or not, how much the backup makes.
Jio Cable Price
While presenting the Reliance Jio Phone, it was announced that this phone will connect via Jio Cable to any television whether it is smart, LED, LCD or with the baggage picture tube, and all the contents of the phone are seen on the TV. Will be able to go. But the company did not give information about how much this cable would have.
Since this is a feature phone, it is obvious that it will not be available in the Android operating system and the company will not only provide an inhouse operating system. In such a situation, the user can not download the app in this time in the future.
