Reliance Jio has finally introduced the successor to the much popular JioPhone. The JioPhone 2 is priced little higher than its predecessor but also offers more features and a full QWERTY keyboard. So, here are the top 5 reasons why you should consider buying the all-new JioPhone 2.
Price and Offers
Price is one of the most attractive parts of the Reliance JioPhone 2. The all-new feature phone is priced at Rs. 2,999. At this price, you are getting a feature phone that is as good as some smartphones as it runs on KaiOS which also has a bunch of apps. The Rs. 2,999 price point when coupled with Reliance Jio’s offers, the deal becomes even more attractive.
A good secondary phone
If your primary phone is an Android or iOS smartphone, you can consider the JioPhone 2 as a secondary device. You can even keep it in your car or at home for safety reasons. Most smartphones suck a lot of juice and there are scenarios where really wish their smartphone could last longer or they just had an extra phone. So, to be safe and not to get stuck in such scenarios, the JioPhone 2 can make a good secondary device.
The JioPhone 2 runs on KaiOS out of the box. KaiOS is a Linux-based mobile operating system specially optimised to run on the JioPhone. The OS also brings app support and users can easily install apps like Facebook on their phone. KaiOS has also recently partnered up with Google in order to bring most of the apps available on the Play Store to the OS.
Unlike the JioPhone, the JioPhone 2 comes with full QWERTY keyboard. The full keyboard can come in handy for people who write a lot of messages or e-mails via their phone. QWERTY keyboard also makes it easy for users as most people have literally forgotten how to use the T3 keypad found on its predecessor.
The JioPhone 2 comes with 4G VoLTE which brings in fast internet speeds with great voice quality over the calls. Voice over LTE is now becoming popular and Jio has only enabled VoLTE for calls which makes it necessary to have 4G VoLTE on your phone if you want to use a Jio sim card.
