Does it have any issues with Jio network?
Hello Sir, It doesn't have any issues with the network, but I would recommend you not to buy this phone as it hangs a lot. It's very slow as compared to lower budget phones like Redmi. Moreover, as it's a very old model, you won't even get the accessories like covers and cases easily. I also have an issue with the mic, sometimes the caller is not able to hear my voice clearly; not because of the network issues, but because of the mic. To be honest, go with Redmi for better results. Thanks.

Please don't buy this phone. It works well in the beginning, and then later it gets worse.

No, not at all. It is a 4G handset and performs very brilliantly on all of the networks.
By ravinderkrnigam, 22 months ago

No, but you have to use Jio4GVoice because it is not a 4G VoLTE phone.

Is this phone for urban area use, does it have good network availability?
Yes, it has good network availability, but this phone hangs a lot. It's a very slow phone, which hangs every moment. I have reset the phone to factory default twice. At the initial stage, it works good, but after installing basic apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, it becomes slow. Even the camera hangs a lot. I would recommend not to go for this phone.
By karan93patil, 22 months ago

Yes, sure. You can carry it anywhere in the country. It is very good in connectivity and no need to bother about any network issue, for sure. I purchased, used and sold it at a good price. Just yesterday, I booked another Asus for my brother-in-law on my guarantee. You can also go for it with no doubt at all.

Yes, Asus is an international brand and has amazing features. It has a great battery backup, but it weighs little heavier. Go ahead and buy it, you will never regret.

Does it support 64GB external memory card and OTG?
Yes, it does support. I have a Samsung 64GB memory card, and it's working fine. Don't buy SanDisk memory card as I have used both. But SanDisk unmounts itself because it's too thin, so don't buy SanDisk, go for Samsung. You will also get an OTG cable in the box.
By aftab14321, 22 months ago

Yes, additionally it can act as a power bank to charge another phone.

Which one is better between Gionee P7 and Asus Zenfone max?
Both have their benefits and drawbacks. Personally, I prefer the Zenfone Max because of the UI which is very powerful and lets you control many things under the hood easily. The launcher is also very powerful and has many features not found on many other phones.
By sataycurry, 25 months ago
Mark Helpful (206)
I did not use Gionee P7 and Asus Zenfone. It is a waste of money, don't purchase this phone. It has a hanging and calling problem and it is a very slow phone.

Does it have a better camera than Redmi 4 mobile?
Sure, it has a much better camera than Redmi 4. In fact, it is much better because it has laser within its camera block and thus it clicks the pictures much faster than any other mobile.

It's alright, but the memory is very less, so it hangs. Please don't buy it; now I am using Redmi 4 only.

By vishwakarmashubham992, 33 months ago
After using for 5 months ,I am writing this review. This phone is best under Rs. 8500, sometimes it hangs, screen will not work properly during an incoming call and camera quality of back camera is really not good, it doesn't give the feeling of 13MP but front camera is amazing, inbuilt features are also awesome.
