Thanks to Jio, 4G and VoLTE are now the most important features for smartphone buyers. Consumers, looking for budget smartphones are asking for VoLTE support.

  • What is VoLTE and why does it matter?

VoLTE abbreviated as Voice over Long Term Evolution is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data connection. With VoLTE, voice calls are made over 4G data in crystal clear HD Quality. In VoLTE there is no call drops or other quality issues. In fact, VoLTE connects faster than normal calls. If you have a VoLTE supported smartphone you can make a VoLTE call only if the person at the other end has a VoLTE enabled smartphone and connectivity. But the reason why it matters the most is because Jio has announced that they are going to give Voice call at no cost for Life Time.
