Currently, one of the major phone releases in the last few weeks which has taken the Indian smartphone industry by the storm is the Redmi Note 7 series. Xiaomi has introduced its phone, for the first time with an impressive 48MP camera sensor and that too with a very affordable price tag. The Redmi Note 7 series packs punchy performance specifications and is also a good camera phone. With those qualities, it is expected to be the next mid-range winner in India. During the launch of the phone, Xiaomi had also announced a partnership with Airtel wherein the subscribers of Airtel who are on a Redmi Note 7 series smartphone would get to enjoy exclusive benefits like 100% more data. In a new update, Reliance Jio has come up with a similar offer. Read ahead to know a comparison between the two schemes.
Airtel Offer for Redmi Note 7 Series Users
First, let’s take a look at the offer being shipped by Airtel for the users of Redmi Note 7 Pro or the Redmi Note 7. Airtel is offering the buyers of Redmi Note 7 series 4GB data per day on a recharge of Rs 249 which comes with a validity of 28 days. The thing to note here is that the standard data offering in this plan is 2GB per day, however, being the buyers of Redmi Note 7 series phone, the consumers will enjoy double the data, i.e. 4GB data per day. The plan will also include unlimited calling benefits as well. The Rs 349 prepaid plan for Redmi Note 7 users will come with 6GB data per day for 28 days, up from the standard benefit of 3GB data per day.
Reliance Jio Offer for Redmi Note 7 Series Users
On the other hand, Reliance Jio is offering a similar scheme which will ship double data benefit to the subscribers but with a little tweak. Reliance Jio’s MRP for recharging your number on Redmi Note 7 Pro or Redmi Note 7 will be Rs 398. To inform you, the Rs 398 prepaid plan by Reliance Jio will offer 4GB data per day to the subscribers, and it will come with a validity of 70 days. Now, this is where the difference between the two operators comes. If subscribers were to recharge via Airtel or Reliance Jio for 280 days, then they will end up buying the recharge ten times through Airtel, while with Reliance Jio they will have to recharge only four times. Throughout 280 days, subscribers will enjoy the same 1120GB amount of data and same calling facilities. However, the amount which the subscribers will spend during this time will be very different. Subscribers of Reliance Jio will only spend Rs 1592 during the 280 days, while Airtel subscribers will have to shell out Rs 2490.
Thus, the pricing of Reliance Jio will be 56% lower than that of Airtel for the buyers of Redmi Note 7 series phones. The total saving for the subscribers will be Rs 898. It is also worth noting that customer will get Cashback vouchers worth Rs 2400 in MyJio app with the Rs 299 Jio recharge. Jio has also pointed out that the double-data offer will be applicable on all Jio recharges above Rs 198.
