Jio SIM is accused to reduce the battery life
Some Reliance Jio SIM users are accusing that the 4G enabled SIM card is reducing the battery life of their smartphone considerably. There are complaints that they are in a necessity to charge their phone's battery frequently than before.
There's a misconception among users
There is a major misconception among the Reliance Jio users related to the overheating issue. People come to the false assumption that their smartphone heats up due to the high data transfer speed rendered by the Reliance Jio network. Actually, the data transfer speed will not make your phone hot or reduce the battery life.
Overheating issues are due to the mobile signal
The Reliance Jio network is still in the early phase and there is a huge demand among the users. The network has to release the complete signal capacity to the nearby towers to give you the maximum signal strength. Sometimes, the SIM has to operate at higher frequencies and this will heat the phone.
My Jio apps might result in battery drain
To get the Jio SIM, the users are forced to download a set of My Jio applications. These apps consume a considerable amount of the battery life in order to receive the notifications from the servers of the network. If you aren't using any of these apps, it is recommended that you uninstall the same to save the battery life.
