Mobilink is calling these phones Jazz X; Xcite for Feature Phone and Xplore for smarpthones.

“We are constantly looking for avenues to provide our customers with the best in-class services and products. The launch of our Jazz X range with our exceptional 3G services will enable consumers, especially from marginalized communities, to be included in the ongoing digitization process,” said Asif Aziz, VP Marketing Mobilink. “There are a very large number of inexpensive and largely undifferentiated devices in the market today catering to the developing communities. We believe, with our Jazz X range, we are able to offer superior value handsets at each price point; something for every consumer.”

    • Even Microsoft came up with “XP” as in for “Experience”, and that doesn’t mean that Microsoft or America for that matter is “X” obsessed. It really depends on how you take it.

  • Network unlocked, to jaaz ke sim kon use kara ga…. Jf100 sae kaam kara ga or wifi ha? Agr to ya dono kaam sae ho to fit backup phn ban sakta. But telenor k phn ke trha farigh na nikal ae

      • Moto G
        Qmobile S1
        Droid Ultra Mini

        all have been used by me and can tell they all are better than this, except S1 which has very low internal storage and can lag sometimes in opening and multitasking apps.

        but if brand New is the only way, than im not familiar with any of the brands/models in this low price.

  • crappy phones , crappy specs ..
    as i speculated a few days ago

    i guess these guys really make future prediction possible :p

  • The specs are like the almost dead man who is hardly breathing but some how manages to get fresh, gets shave and wears X perfume and walks in smartphone market.

  • Dear Amir7 well u can get Qmobile M88 Nitro Pro in Rs. 8100/- Quadcore 1GB 8GB 5 inch FWVGA display and the most important thing it have 3000 MAH battery another Mmobile Splender P15I it also have 5 inch display with 1GB 4GB and IPS QHD display only in Rs. 7500/- with the same specs like JS700 you can also get Qmobile X90 only in Rs. 7500/-

    • X90’s Price on official website is Rs. 9,500 and btw it comes with dual core processor and 1800mAh battery.

      About M88, its not available on their website. Whatmobile is showing it for Rs. 8,800.

      See I am not confronting you, but my whole point is that one should be little careful before sharing a negative feedback, unless you are a competition. One just shouldn’t come up and say k bakwas phone hay ya mehnga phone hay without knowing the realities.

      About specs, people should realize that these phones are not for first time users. These phones are not for those who have sufficient money to spend 12K or more on their phones. These are for ultra-low end segment, for whom the entry barrier has been relaxed now with these phones that work — that can connect to internet, can have whatsapp and other similar apps to begin with.

      You might not be aware of the fact but best potential for growth in new internet users is in this 4-8K price point.

      • I agree with him that these are enfry level phones n many would love to switch on these cheap phones from their feature phones. And there might be same price mobiles in market like qmobile, Microsoft but these phones coming with free Internet bundles so people may prefer these phones over market phones. So we should not discourage. And mostly people from villages n remote areas they don’t have big mobile shops but they have franchises of these companies who can offer them these phones having the price tag.

  • Dude, if you really believe Windows XP had anything to do with p orn, you might need to get yourself checked in the head.

      • Yeah, you’re trying to “connote” that anything with an X in the title has to do with po rn. How deep and mature. Seriously though, get help. Friendly advice, take it or leave it.

        • It wasn’t me who was trying to imply that, kiddo. It was the one who commented that “Pata nahi kab Pakistani X-free naam sochein gay” – and in response to that, my comment was making a different point when I told them about the XP thing. You’re a cretin who didn’t get any of it and pops up in the middle with his “that was 16 years ago” bullshit.

          Seriously, go watch POGO. There is no place for imbeciles such as you. We have too many already. Shove that friendly advice up yours xD

  • can any one here answer my few question here regarding these phones.

    1. can we use 3g internet of feature phone jf 100 on our laptops or pc just like we use our smart phones internet thru hotspot or usb theatring? i really want to know abt it bcos i wana buy this feature phone if it has this feature of usb theatring or hotspot like thing. also here in karachi it is safe to carry low end phone rather than an expensive smart phone and for me any thing above 5000 is expensive. already lost 3 smart phones thru snatching.

    2. are both sims on feature phone or smart phone have 3g or only single sim have 3g?

    3. does Mobilink X JS300 have hotspot and usb theatring option for internet sharing?

    i hope you people help me in this regard.

  • I am a casual user who has nothing to do with Jazz, Mobilink, Windows XP, feature phones, budget phones, 8000 PKR phones, low capacity batteries or high capacity batteies…. after reading all comments here, i am LOL LOL LOL LOL…. where in the post it says that it is a personal brand of Aamir ( the admin )…. us k ek comment se aap log ye taásur kese le sakte ho k wo is brand ko promote kar raha he ye us ka owner he… and everyone here just start arguing for the sake of arguing… no matter he is mister X or mister Y or mister Z…

  • The related advertisement depicts a dearth of ideas. I wish our marketing ideas can come out of female curves and seductive actions! Disgusting!

  • When i open 3g network, it downloads apps from playstore as well as browse websites also, but when it cames towards playing youtube videos, it stuck on loading sign, and for torrent, it stuck on calculating but does not starts.
