What a propaganda here when talking about a Win phone! Windows 10 mobile is not discontinued but they dont produce anymore phones (Microsoft), there are until now critical security updates receiving. Find more information about! Win 8 phone instead is already discontinued. But every mobile OS had advantages and disadvantages. Besides, why everybody is forced now to buy/have/use only and only androids in 2018? Where is the freedom to choose in a free market?!? Android is a monopoly google OS, mainly for children in their 20-s. A stupid OS, childish, cheap, full of viruses and bloatware! With updates almost every day (if not every 3-5 hours!) - eating memory/battery like mad! Conclusion: to remain in 2018 with only 2 monopoly OS - android & IOS - this is really stupid!
I've had this phone for for a little over 2 years now. I like the way the OS looks, and how you can customise your home screen. It's a really nice modern looking GUI.
Unfortunately the phone has far too many flaws to make it worth buying.
First note that Microsoft has discontinued their mobile phones, so that should be enough to sway you.
Other flaws include a buggy OS prone to crashes, slow browser (Internet Explorer), slow phone in general, low app developer interest, No access to anything by google (No google maps. Which reminds me; The native map app is awful and unreliable), bad setup for volume control, low ram, No noticeable advantage for using the phone with a PC running windows.
I'm sure there's more issues, but I can' think of anything more right now. I've probably convinced you by now, though; Don't buy this phone

I'm on my 4th Windows phone and every one has a fast open. Less than 15 seconds with storage memory maxed. I'd hose it and reinstall. if there's a Microsoft store near you they'll probably help you out to make sure it goes correctly.
In case you're thinking "shill," I've been using an PowerBook/MacBook for more than 15 years. I'm cheap, but willing to pay for value. Windows phones are a GREAT value.
Going to be my first and last Windows 10 Mobile device. I can't stand the OS, as it's buggy, slow and it takes ages to reboot. Sometimes the camera fails to start, or it hangs and Skype on there really does show how bad it really is. The battery doesn't last long after several months, so I'd avoid this one.

It is up to Jio to support VoLTE on Windows phones. The phones listed below are capable.
T-Mobile in the Czech Republic supports VoLTE on Windows phones with their app and SIM with no update from Microsoft required.
Link to their VoLTE information. I can not provide a translated page because it is secure https.
https://www.t-mobile.cz/volte They support the Microsoft Lumia550, 640 LTE, 650, 950, 950 XL directly, no firmware update required, just their app.
Your problem is with Jio, not Microsoft as seen with this example below.
Link in this forum from a user that used T-Mobile in Czech Republic SIM and was mad about the app that was installed and changed his phone. He did not understand he was getting VoLTE.

Microsoft phones taught me how a bad UI and bad software can ruin something that could be a good low end hardware. They didn't even cover basic things, not to mention horrendous lack of features!
They could make software better, but they didn't care. It was more important for them to keep up with PC and laptops, since that's their main source of income. I used Windows PC's for my whole life, and my opinion is that it sucks too. I don't have enough money for a MAC and there's no PC with Android. So when my current computer dies I'm getting a tablet. I've had enough of both - Windows and Microsoft!
'Microsoft' as we all know on a big level. But i'll say that they are only got success in computers and laptops but not in phones due to lack of applications running in it and for their stores. Phone is working well and given fine processor and ram but offered a sleek design aluminium frame which is better than any other phone.
Storage and ram is less given in this phone because storage is less due to its updates size and ram is for working. Battery power is not enough for this phone, radio is available in this phone but after update its application have been removed, nfc not working well,touch sensivity sometimes is not good.sometimes its speed get slows down and stucking in b/w.
But window phone teach us in a very disciplined manner to use it, due to its limited apps and features.
Camera is good and not good also because it depends on its angle that how we click it, It is for both front and back. If i talk about its back panel so it's fine and easy to clean it. Sound quality is fine. It screen size is enough and good for users. But its screen protective glass have not worked well. As my phone display broken easily in my pocket.
Rest are the things are working good. In this phone i liked three things its sleek design with aluminium frame, back camera and its flash place and main thing is its weight. Its appearance window 10, wallpaper and UI theme are pretty good. Actually the weight of this phone is very light.
