SIM Card

To be honest, the clear answer is NO. You’ll experience almost similar performance. But one can expect a strong network connection and stability in modern devices.

Since JioFi is a dedicated mobile router its only job is to share internet and nothing else, while Jio SIM used in mobile device and used as mobile hotspot will not share 100% of its availability as a mobile device will definitely use internet for itself like – checking frequent emails, social media notifications, and etc.

Over that JioFi can be placed at a higher location where it has a better opportunity to catch good coverage and signal. While mobile devices too have similar benefit but we do not use mobile like that.

Even antennas on JioFi is slightly bigger compared to mobile. But modern day smartphones have many advance features like carrier aggregation that can make things faster.

Technically you will experience similar speeds in JioFi as well as Jio SIM used in mobile, unless your mobile has better modem and supports modern features.

So you have your answer now.
