Concluding Thoughts and Advice – 

Notably, the Jio Phone is a single SIM card phone, while the other three offer dual-SIM support. 

The Micromax Bharat 1 and the Intex Turbo+ 4G are good options if you are not using the JIO sim. For Jio Sim card users the JIO is a good option. The Lava Connect M1 is absurdly expensive in comparison to rivals.

This is just the beginning and we are expected many more 4G Volte Feature phones to arrive in the coming months. Also, Android Go phones are worth waiting if you are planning to purchase an affordable phone.
