Ibn Batuta, 30 Oct 2021Gone r those days grandpaYes, grandpas are the target market for this, son.

Apparently, Jio Next is a failed project. They could have done better but fkd up/scammed the pricing.

It's features are already fcked up. I can buy 2 drones in 7000 rupees. Do you think that offering free Google services at 200 rupees extra charge will make us happy?

Dont buy this phone, it is a scam

Dudenoway, 31 Oct 2021It's a 2,000 inr phone. What did u expect?It is not a 2000 inr phone. It costs 6499 inr. In that budget most phones has better processor.

GeeSquer4U, 01 Nov 2021Chinese crap don't have clean Android as in Nokia. Tha... moreNope. It's trasHMD that deserves the label of "crap". Not the Chinese offerings. Even the cheapest of Chinese offering won't have problems like the ones found on trasHMD.
Clean Android is just another name of "incompetent" chaps installing Android without even making an effort to make it more user friendly. And trasHMD goes on another level of incompetency by not even optimizing it.
P.S: trasHMD is "more dependent" on Chinese ODMs than Chinese OEMs themselves

That's why Fairphone, trasHMD, etc. with "pure, useless Android"

Ever hear of Redmi Go? That costs same as Nokia 1 and was miles ahead (actually, comparable to 3.2 and 4.2 which costs more than twice).
Realme C11 is on a whole next level compared to any trash by trasHMD.

And how can they buy at such a high price. ? Plans are also what we like. What are you giving? REDMI , Realme has better features than this. Shouldn't the cost be adjusted accordingly? Why did they spit on you. Want to put 199 plan on 350? Every month? Whoever designed these plans at all, this mobile flop if the cost continues to the same cost.

Do not do what you are offered as new. These features have been around since 2017. These Google apps come for free. How do you put them on as a new feature?

No. Why Poor people come forward to buy an expensive mobile. plans are better on Amazon and Flipkart than you. if you come with better price segment like Rs. 3000 to 3500. people can thnik and purchse this mobile. otherwise 100% failure this mobile. once your side also you think.

Thank you

If it continues to the same cost .. it seems that the Geo phone is the next mobile failure. These mobile specifications are worse than the 2011,2012 model. Plans are ours. Why should we take the plans given by him. It's also a mobile that works for 24 months. There are better mobiles in Redmi, Realme and Moto than this, I was looking forward to it too. Expensive. The value of this mobile is only from 3000 to 3500 rupees . There is no value to this specification beyond that. I will not take it if it continues to the same cost. I do not want to.

GeeSquer4U, 31 Oct 2021There is a better Nokia offering at this price. Nokia C01 a... moreNokia is just another trash these days, dude. Better go for Chinese alternatives in this price range

There is a better Nokia offering at this price. Nokia C01 at 5999₹. Nokia C3 6999₹. Nokia C20+ 8499₹. Then why to buy from jio. Already fcked up by the jio feature phones that I bought when they launched. The buttons needs hammer to press it & so many poor things about it.

Another major feature missed by all the other commenters here is this phone's ability to allow people to talk to someone else in a different language using its feature described as Translate Now. It is described below:
----------------------------
"Translate Now” will help users cross the language barrier. They can talk into the phone in their language to have it translated into another language. "
----------------------------
This is a huge benefit that will help bridge the gap among people's separated by a different language.

There is no comparable smartphone with a bundled data plan that can come close to this at this price point.

All of the comments so far seem to miss the main point of this phone which is that it is designed for people who've either never been able to afford a smartphone before or who are illiterate or only partially literate.

The screen reading features and language customization to the 10 major Indian languages plus the ability to read aloud what the camera is looking at are all major innovations that will help these users with limited literacy skills.

I hope this phone succeeds as it will help millions of poor people in India.
