2. Lagging Keypad
Its keyapad is lagging most of the times and this is the biggest bug, In most of the cases we need to restart it to work properly. There are various bugs in Jio Phone related to keypad listed as below
- Lagging Keypad
- Back button and Home Button is same so we can not navigate to home directly.
- Unable to cut the calls sometime (need restart to work).
- Shortcut keys are fixed (No option of customization)
As the home button and back button are same, we can not navigate to home directly. We need to quit the running app
to use other one. Next one is sometime we are unable to cut ongoing call so we need to restart it. Also the four navigation keys that is short cut keys are fixed, we can no customize it.
3. Lagging Firmware
Firmware of this Jio Phone is somewhat laggy, as per my experience, it lags when I use browser. It did not respond any keys. So again I need to restart it! So using Jio Phone now with this firmware is nothing but the playing the game of RESTART. This is the biggest bug in Jio Phone. Hope very soon we will get update.
4. App Store
This Jio Phone has Jio Play Store, which has only apps of Jio and one other app is Government’s NM app. So without any third party app, we get less functionality. According to some tech bloggers, the different popular apps will be launched for Jio Phone after its customization and testing its compatibility with OS. Meanwhile you can check official Kai OS market HERE.
As mentioned above, this phone has different variety. There may be difference between two Phones. But at the end, the upcoming software update will be same for every Jio Phone.
