Jio Phone 2 Performance
Jio phone 2 supports dual sim whereas jio phone supports only single sim. Now you can use two nano sim on your jio phone 2 which is a great update. Most of the users use dual sim cards at a time. Reliance promised to resolve issues with jio phone in jio phone 2.
Jio phone has problems like its buttons does not work properly after some usage, buttons were tactile and it used to hang after some heavy usage but not actually the heavy usage because how you can use a feature phone as heavy as they assume it to be heavy. Jokes apart but actually phone has some heating issues and it stops working sometimes.
Wrapping up jio phone 2 is a small upgrade to jio phone for a heavy price but jio promises to solve all the issues in its predecessor giving a better deal. And if you wish to upgrade to jio phone 2 you can upgrade for Rs 501 but I suggest if you want a feature phone then go for jio phone at Rs 1500 but if you already have then its a great deal to get jio phone 2 for Rs 501 by exchanging jio phone.
