    Honestly speaking, fast charging is the most relevant and important feature these days in phones. You can charge your phone fully within minutes while you are getting ready to leave your home. No, Nokia 8.1 does not support fast charging. If configured correctly, the phone can give you upto a day's battery.

    Answered By Dhruv Malhotra | 2 months ago

    You don't need to enable VoLTE. Insert the Jio (VoLTE enabled) in any slot. By default, VoLTE will be active. If it is not, you can change the network preferences from Network option in settings.


    1. Go to Settings > Call Settings (Sim and Network)
    2. Tap Cellular networks > Enable Voice over LTE On/ Off.

    Alternatively, you can follow a much easier way:


    1. You can simply dial *#*#4636#*#* 
    2. Choose Phone information.
    3. Click " Phone Information" and Toggle VOLTE Provisioned.
    4. Restart the phone and you are done.
