Facebook on Jio Phone: This was our experience

Table of Contents

jio phone The good news of running Facebook has come only last month. The special version of Facebook, available in Jio Phone from February 14, can be downloaded from the Jio App Store. This app is specially designed for Jio KaiOS. It is to be known that Jio’s ‘smart’ 4G feature phone works on the web-based Kai operating system. Let’s know, how does Facebook work on Jio phone? What was the experience we got while using it…

If you want to run Facebook in Jio phone, then first you have to click on ‘Jio Store’ from the options given in the menu bar. As soon as you go to the Jio Store, you will see many applications, including Facebook. Click on Facebook to download. If you are in a place with better connectivity then it will be downloaded within few seconds. Open Facebook. The first glance at the login page will remind you of Facebook’s mobile browser interface. In this way you can run facebook in jio phone. There is nothing new in the features and user interface.

The Facebook feature given in Jio Phone is better for its price. It took us only a few seconds to download Facebook, which is a good thing in terms of experience. After this, there was no problem from Facebook login to notifications, checking messages, scrolling up and down. In terms of user interface, Jio Phone’s Facebook reminds you of the early phones that provided a pointer/trackball to use Facebook. We used the phone’s search bar.
We searched Facebook friends by account. View friends’ profiles. Going to group and did many activities. Features like Like, Comment and Share are also working smoothly in this. In this you get to know how many notifications came. You can like, comment and share your and your close friend’s post by simply moving the pointer on them. If you are accustomed to running Facebook on Android smartphone or iOS, then using Facebook here can make you nervous. But, in this budget segment, it is hardly possible to have a better Facebook user experience than the Jio feature phone. The pointer is smooth, as well as if you are going from notification to message for example, then you will not have to move the pointer in an empty space. Switching in one direction, the pointer automatically drags and stops on the next feature. In this way, while running Facebook from Jio phone, you do not feel at all that if there was another phone, you would have used such a feature too.
Here you can update status. Can send message to anyone. You can easily see the message sent by anyone. By clicking on the notification, you can also like, share and comment without any problem. Also, by going to the settings menu, like a normal phone, you will be able to set the password and other settings according to your own. That is, the activities you can do on Facebook from any other phone are also possible with the help of this Jio feature phone of yours.

Now let’s talk about the flaws. One of the main problems faced while using Facebook in Jio Phone is the font/picture size. When you scroll up and scroll down, you see text and pictures very small, which can make the user nervous. Coming out of a sizable screen and Android experience, when you run Facebook in it, you’re stuck in a small box where activities like likes, comments and shares don’t seem to be of much interest. If the user had been given an interface different from the mobile browser, then the pointed flaws could have been hidden to a great extent.

You may find the Facebook feature a bit ‘outdated’ while using it, but giving such a smooth experience for a feature phone is a big achievement of Reliance Jio.

It is to be known, Jio Phone has been on the e-commerce website since last month. Amazon India But also made available for sale. Earlier, Jio Phone was available for sale only on Reliance Digital Store, Jio website, MyJio App and partner stores of Reliance Jio. The price of the phone is Rs 1,500. Let us tell you that if the user returns this phone after 3 years, then they will get back Rs 1,500.
