Jio True 5G Phone Pros & Cons: Worth buying or not?

The Jio True 5G phone though is yet to be launched and its launch is only speculated currently, we can still try to predict the performance of the phone based on its leaked specs. Our review of the Jio 5G Phone is based on the specs that we know so far. Below we have tried to mention all the pros and cons of the Jio 5G phone that we could think of. These can help you figure out if the Jio True 5G phone is worth buying or not.

Pros of the new Jio 5G Phone
  • A 6.5 inches HD IPS LCD display screen in its budget is pretty standard

  • An 8MP selfie camera in this price range is decent enough as you’d mostly find a 5MP front camera in other entry-level phones in the same price range

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+ may be a basic 5G chipset but it is still better than Mediatek G80 which we’d commonly see in many other smartphones in the same price range

  • A 4GB RAM in this price range is noteworthy

  • The Jio 5G phone is said to pack an Android 12 which is almost the latest

  • You also get 5G connectivity with the new Jio 5G phone making it a good budget 5G phone to buy

Cons of the new Jio 5G Phone:
  • No fingerprint sensor

  • As per reports, the Jio 5G phone may come with a modified version of the Android

  • Jio mobile phones generally require you to have an active Jio SIM in either of the slots (you can’t just use any other telecom operator’s SIM)

Overall, if Jio 5G Phone is launched under Rs.10,000, somewhere around 7K to 8K, it could be a good budget phone to buy that can deliver a smoother experience with its 2.2 GHz octa-core Snapdragon processor and provide you with a 5G connectivity along with a decent RAM of 4GB.

On the flip side, some reports also suggest that the Jio 5G phone may come with Android 11, and a 5MP front camera, and Jio may price its new 5G phone up to Rs.12,000 in which case, it may not be that good of a deal to buy. There are better mobile deals available from brands like Xiaomi, Techno Spark, and Realme. 

Similar to how Jio launched its Jio Phone Next with PragatiOS, we may get to see something similar with the new Jio 5G phone too. The Jio True 5G phone nevertheless still has a better processor as compared to the Vivo Y53S which is priced at 20K but only comes with a Mediatek G80 processor.

You cannot expect to perform heavy gaming on the Jio 5G Phone. But if you wish to buy an entry-level phone under 10000 with 5G connectivity, and decent performance, the Jio 5G phone can be good to consider.

Note, that this review of the new Jio 5G phone is based on the specifications that we know so far. The Jio 5G phone is still yet to make its launch. Hence, the review may differ depending on the Jio 5g phone’s official specifications.

PragatiOS, Android 12 - Hope "pragati" doesn't stop at A12 itself and atleast A13 sees the daylight for this model...

Also "pragati" sounds and smells like election campaign mumbo-jumbo to me...
