    Reliance Jio Phone is a feature phone but with smart features like 4G VoLTE capabilities. It is neither a dumb feature phone nor does it pack all the details of a smartphone. However, at Rs 1500, the Jio Phone will be a massive disruptor, especially in the telecom sector more than the mobile sector. This is because, more than its own features, the Jio Phone will bring a majority of Indians on the 4G internet network. Jio Phone is the only way for Reliance to lure in the rural market as no feature phone support 4G services, and Jio only has that network. (FE Photo)

    When will you get Jio Phone? We got to see one of the first few Reliance Jio Phones. The official deliveries have already begun for the device. The initial focus appears to be on the rural areas, as urban areas and metros are positioned second in the list. The company has not started the 2nd round of pre-bookings for the Jio Phone and there is no clarity on the date as of now. (FE Photo)

    WhatsApp on Jio Phone: There is no WhatsApp support on the Jio Phone as of now. But there is no Jio Chat as well. So, the main reason appears to be Kai OS not supporting the messaging app. Hence, if these companies decide to collaborate, we may soon see WhatsApp on these devices. (FE Photo)

    Jio Phone verdict: From whatever little time we had we the device, the Jio Phone packs a punch given its price point. However, it is in many ways a feature phone. So, if you are comfortable with smartphones, we see not many reasons to switch to this device. It is strictly meant for the rural audience who still cannot afford a smartphone. However, it offers a lot more than a regular feature phone. From various apps to high-speed internet, the Jio Phone is a really impressive device. (FE Photo)
