Jio Jiofi Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, d/b/a Jio, is an Indian telecommunications company and a subsidiary of Jio Platforms, headquartered in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. It operates a national LTE network with coverage across all 22 telecom circles. It does not offer 2G or 3G service, and instead uses only voice over LTE to provide voice service on its 4G network.
"1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor design; battery heat up makes it non-functional," says "Zkango" on an Amazon review of "JioFi 4G Hotspot M2S 150 Mbps" on November 25, 2018:
"Very poor design... It says designed in India... But I doubt it. This is not suitable for Indian weather. The battery in the device heats up very fast and that causes the signal to be lost/extremely slow. I reside in Mumbai and it's warm but not very hot in this city... Still, the device doesn't work well.
So I had to remove the internal battery and connect the device to an external power bank, and now it's working well.
Another irritation is the power on the button... It takes a bloody long hard press to power it on, and after that another half a minute to start up. A simple press to power on would have made it much easier to operate.
The range is also not great... You have to be within the same room to get the signal... Move to another room and the signal drops significantly.
In terms of speed, it's good, which also depends on the coverage area of Jio. But no complaints in this department.
Overall, I am disappointed that you pay 1,000 bucks and you get a product that becomes a brick without external battery support."
