If you don't have a 4G VoLTE phone and are trying to get one to enjoy Reliance Jio's free offers than you can consider this phone. Note that all 4G VoLTE phones are now eligible for Reliance Jio's offer after its launch on September 5. Infact, few days back while announcing its partnership with Jio, Xolo had announced that all its upcoming 4G phones will be eligible for Jio Preview offer (now Jio Welcome offer). But note the Xolo Era 1X is not the cheapest 4G VoLTE phone, LYF is currently offering 4G phones for as low as Rs 2,999.
