Now Taking About Jio2 MiFi Review 

Design

The JioFi 2 MiFi device is very small. it is easily fit in the pocket. This also translates to better portability. Meaning you can carry it around all day, without even noticing that it right there in your pocket connecting everything from your smartphone.

JioFi 2 is made fully of plastic that also features a removable back cover that gives you access to a microSD card slot (up to 32GB), SIM slot and the removable battery. The 2,300 mAh battery can be charged using the micro USB port available on the right side of the device.

Shiny black front face are 4 LED indicators that show the status of the network’s connectivity, mobile data, Wi-Fi connectivity and Wi-Fi Protected Setup. While the 4 LED indicators to do with networks sit above the Jio logo, there is another three-bar battery indicator that sits to the right of the power button.

There are just two buttons in device. A power button to boot up the MiFi hotspot that sits on the front face and a WPS on/off button that sits on the left side of the device. The power button also features an LED indicator that blinks from time to time to indicate whether the device is on or off.

Features

Using the JioFi 2 is very easy. You simply insert the SIM card, and press the power button on the front of the device, to boot the MiFi hotspot. It takes about 5-10 seconds to boot up and connect to the Jio 4G network. The network indicator cycles from red to green and then the Wi-Fi indicator turns on, indicating that the JioFi 2 is ready to share it data connection.

one of the best part is that the hotspot automatically disconnects (indicator turns blue) from the Jio network when not in use. While it makes for a great power saving feature, your device does get disconnected from the internet until you press power button to quick connect once again.

Apps

Download the Jio Join app from the Google Play Store, and you also get access to Jio Voice calls using a smartphone without a SIM card inside. The calls worked fine but it depends on the receiver’s operator. Vodafone did not work while calls to Airtel routed is ok.

And with the JioFi 2 I you also got access to the collection of Jio app on the Google Play and the App Store. There’s a lots of content available with each app and accessing them on the 20Mbps bandwidth meant that watching live TV or other shows was a great experience without any buffering.

Final Verdict

Overall, JioFi device is a great purchase and if you are a heavy internet user, you should think of picking up a JioFi device from your nearest Reliance Digital store.
