          somebody should improve watchOS which can run on upto 5" Feature Smart Phones
          Android [any version] running on 2GB RAM is completely useless.
          better to use WatchOS which can run better and have limited apps only

            Anonymous, 25 Oct 2021Can't these guys develop their own rom?They are extra ordinary & skillful enough, so instead of just developing a separate rom, they are working with google to create another's copy of Android

                    more power to the puppet govt. the conglomerate will gain more data to play with.

                      I don't like this idea. Pragati means progress but this kind of progress, we don't need.

                      This is just surveillance level 10 max pro. We just can't trust this. Man, I don't want to live in the future the way it appears now.

                            Yet another attempt towards total police and surveillance state by these two profit centric anti-democracy orgs (one more brazen than the other).

                            Reliance will gather it, the self appointed lords will ask for it, and Reliance will happily trade it for corporate perks and monopoly over the sector. If big data is the new oil then Reliance wants to frack open the world's largest unclaimed oil reserve, to compliment it's world's largest oil refinery (not a metaphor) which causes the most per capita pollution in india.

                            I hate the china phones just as much, if not more. But letting Reliance turn the indian telcom-IT-BigData sector into a consolidated hegemony is what will bring the dark days closer much faster.

                              It will come with heavily bloated crap apps from Jio and useless ads and notifications in drop down menus. A made in India sticker to hide the weakest processor of Snapdragon 200 series. This may not get posted but it is the reality.

                                People in India should support this brand instead of buying xiaomi and bbk

                                  Should have also worked with bgmi devs for lite version for this jiophone. Really important.

Google has its custo... moreAOSP is quite bare and most custom rom developers apply their own skin and features to AOSP to make it useable. There used to be pure AOSP custom roms before Google started stripping features from AOSP but not anymore.
