Suggest 4G Smartphone

Recommended Posts

Old Samsung phones like A9 PRO and C9 PRO used to have that wonderful feature, but Sammy as usual s(rewed it via Nougat update.. During Android 6.0 days in those phones, I use Jio on VoLte and Airtel for 3G only and can switch data on either sim at my wish. All I have to do is, select the "Keep the SIM" option, when there is a query to change network for data. God, I hate Samsung's software...

Can you confirm that you can simultaneously get VoLTE in Jio and also functional 3G data in second SIM? I also use RN3 but the moment I select internet data option as second SIM, the second SIM becomes LTE and the 1st SIM becomes 3G without data. There is no option to select connection mode for non-data SIM. Only the internet enabled SIM gives the option to select between 2G, 3G and LTE.

Sorry! The latest ROM (version 8.5.7.0) is not supporting this (today I tried again and it is switching the primary Sim network as well, as pointed by you). I don't remember which ROM had this feature but it was working when I bought the phone and I lost my Vodafone balance because by mistake I enabled data on my second SIM while I was using Jio for calls.

Update has ruined the feature.

Even switching network mode using *#*#4636#*#* didn't help. Some kind of bug... 

I tried in lava X11 and it works but the second SIM supports only 2G (Edge).

NO... Asus Zenfone max Pro (M1) {that's a mouth full of name} doesn't support simultaneous Dual-VoLTE till now, as told by some youtube reviewers. Only option is Honor View10... Luckily, View10 supports all VoLTE networks in India, incl vodafone.

it seems Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M1) does support Dual 4G VoLTE as claimed!

Note: Available on Review Unit received by Gogi Tech, nice if the retail unit ships with Dual 4G VoLTE!

Yes. Asus has enabled that in one of the 3 updates, it has sent after phone launch. Further the updates have improved RAM management and speed of finger print scanning as well.

VoLTE for Airtel and Vodafone are expected in coming updates as well...

thanks for the update!

at present, Jio4G Data Speed crawls at my Home [low Band5 signal, indoors] & Airtel4G is excellent. However, Jio4G is excellent at Office & Airtel4G s**ks [4G-3G-2G frequent changeover, low signal & Battery drains]. Now I carry 2 handsets with me [Moto E3 Power (Airtel4G-Plan399) & Lyf Wind4 (Jio4G-Plan98)]!

 After Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M1) hits the market, I hope other vendors may also introduce Dual VoLTE handsets!

Yes! You are absolutely right. By the end of this year we can expect several models from different leading brands with Dual VoLTE feature.

I am also looking for a handset with Dual VoLTE.

I would suggest you get a Micromax Bharat 1 and put the Jio SIM in that. It offers very small form factor and excellent wifi hotspot. As you are using Jio 98mplan, I am assuming that you are using it as the backup plan.

since i already have a standby smartphone [Lyf Wind4, 4000mAH battery] there is no need for Micromax Bharat 1.

Jio98 Prepaid Plan [2GB 4G, unlimited voice, 300 SMS - 28 days] is not a "Backup Plan" - Regular Plan for use in Office [no Video/Photos downloads] - Lyf Wind4 [Dual SIM 4G-4G]

Airtel399 Prepaid Plan [1.4GB 4G Data/day, unlimited voice, 100SMS/day - 84 days] is for Home use - Moto E3 Power [Dual SIM 4G-4G]

I also have Wind4 as secondary phone. Good phone. But due to RAM limitations, it difficult to put more than a couple of apps. Hoping against hope to get Oreo Go update on it.

I don't think the battery drain in DualVoLTE networks will be higher than 4G + 3G phones, unless otherwise the 4G coverage of one of the network su(ks... Constant switching from 4G to 3G/2G for voice calls will drain the battery more, imho...
