    No, memory card slot is not there in Mi A2. However, there is 64GB internal memory which is more than enough for use. You can have multiple games, photos, videos, apps and still there is space in your device. I am also using a 64GB phone and its been 2 months. Memory has never been an issue.

    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. Tap Settings > More.
    2. Tap Cellular networks > IMS Settings > Voice over LTE On/ Off.
