      I’ve yet to have an hands-on experience of F1S so i cannot comment. SD652 should cater most of the Apps and Games but wont go anywhere near SD820 821 performance. To get phone for Rs. 9599 make your payment using Jio Money.

    In one of your ads, it shows the price of the mobile is 20,249 and you are offering 50% discount (net price 10,099), where as in another site it show that the mobile is being launched at a price of 10,099. Which one I should believe ? Are you trying to baffle the public ?????

      There is a link to Jio’s official website. May be you are not aware of marketing ploy most company’s use. Make the product expensive and give discounts only to sell at actual price. And Yes, The price listed at Newzars is 10,099 which is its actual price. What’s there to baffle the public when the information given is accurate. May be you should read carefully and try to understand.

    Dear Pawan,
    I received a LYF F1s just now. After putting my jio sim it started updates including my personal data from my old phone.

    What is bothering me is, I am unable to lactate the E-compass feature. May be this also would be downloaded as part of its software update?
    Kindly clarify. Many thanks.

      E-compass is a built in sensor, there are lots of compass apps that you can download. It will use that sensor

        Many thanks for your clarification. I thought that it was part of the operating system –Android. Earlier my iPhone, Xiaomi android phone etc. all had this as a built-in feature and hence my query. Best wishes.
