my grand dads cdma sim was upgraded to jio 4g now he needs a new smartphone. i suggested him coolpad note 3 as the budget was around 7-8k. however when he went to the store, the personnel told him coolpad lite has band 3 and 40. where as jio requires band 3,5&40. i need help from someone who uses jio on coolpad note 3. also help from people having technical knowledge would be great as he is in need of a new phone.
Yes it has only band 3(1800Mhz) and band 40(2300Mhz) (checked on gsmarena and amazon both.)
Rcom has its own band 5(850Mhz) for 4g. So phone with all 3 band is necessary. You can check below list for smartphones supports all 3 bands.
Some latest smartphones like meizu m3 note are missing from the list, so you have to check that if you want to buy any latest one.
